  1. Big lumbering guys like Seider and Power look way better in our smaller rinks than these big 

    Euro ice sheets.  

  2. Bobby Lou was a HHOF goalie, but his team Canada 2021 is horrid.

      I wouldn't read too much into this year's WC. Lots of thin rosters out there, Sweden lost to Denmark and Belarus and Finland lost to Kazakhstan.

      I’m not surprised. NHL players shy away from going to this tournament even at the best of times, in favour of resting their bodies after the gruelling NHL schedule. Add in the pandemic and saying “yes” to this tournament is even less appealing for the players. When you can’t draw enough 1st or 2nd tier players, this is what you get. Hard to hang that on Lou.

    We lost, kind of like we’re doing now. :(

      If you are the best team to miss the playoffs, it is impossible to lose the draft lottery.  You either stay the same, or move up.

  5. Who will be the bigger bustaroo:  Kakko or Jack Hughes?

      Also imo Nico Hischer is the biggest bustaroo.. 

       

      Hard to believe he was first overall ahead of Elias. 

    3. Alflives

      Alflives

      Hischier will make a really good number three centre.  But that’s not what Jersey was expecting with their first overall pick.  Hischier and then Jack Hughes could be (combined) the two worst first overall picks by one team in a short window of drafts (3 years) in the history of the draft.  Seriously two top picks in three years and they basically got nothing that will really help them win.  No wonder their GM got iced.

  6. Other teams’ fans are losers.  Go post on your own boards and stop fishing here.  Isn’t there a rule against this fishing?

      Looks like the rule is clear.  Other teams’ fans can come here and rile up real Canuck’s fans, and the Canuck fan (defending his team) could get banned.  This seems very unfair.

      We don't discriminate against fans of others teams, but the rule is clear, if they are just here to antagonize Canucks fans they won't be here long.

       

      On the other hand just because someone is a fan of something else it doesn't give anyone the right to antagonize them either. Some people here are fans of multiple teams including the Canucks. Heck one guy here is even a fan of the TV show ALF apparently.

      Watched the whole game and Edmonton was beaten to every loose puck. Vegas forwards smothered McDavid and Draisaitl all night and neither could get any space. Seems to me the key to beating Edmonton is exactly what Vegas did. Seriously, Edmonton looked to be the new Not Ready for Prime Time Players.

      you ever tried a McRib?  :sick:

      A couple years ago I thought the Coil should trade Draisatl for a number one D man.  Now I think that should be McRib :sick: that goes. 

  10. Heard on 650 that Talon got direction from his owner to cut salary.  Trochek was just the start.  Why is there a team there?

      Quantum....I think Bettman moves Ottawa ( Kanata ) to QC to keep the Canadian quota at par meanwhile Florida would move another US location. I prefer what your saying though.

      Exactly the Coilers!  Now they need to way overpay their two Smurfette centres.  I’d say 10 million each should be about right.  Oh, and give them each 8 years.  Then they can suck for the next decade!  :lol:

      Maybe they could trade for Middlestadt and have three Smurfette centres? 

  13. Does the math support we could be out of a playoff spot upon return from this road trip?

      Montreal and Ottawa were huge sellers, and Toronto still has an ECHL quality blueline.  We should probably teach Demko how to operate the Zamboni to be safe though.

  14. Rangers start winning, when Kakko’s ice time gets seriously limited.  Kreider is now going to resign there, according to Dreger.  

  15. Noticed that adding Jack Hughes and Kakko points together and they are still seven behind Quinn.

      Mrs Alf should keep an eye on Alf’s wandering ways.  She should accompany him to a Friday night Bingo night for the next few weeks.  

  17. JB saying today talks with Marky are tabled until after the season.  We have to keep Marky don’t we?  

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      hard to say, depends what he wants. If a team like Cowgary offers him 7 mil x 6 years we kind of need to walk from that. 

       

      There are a lot of goalies available next free agency if they are looking at a more split-time scenario with Demko and a veteran.

    3. Nuxfanabroad

      Nuxfanabroad

      JB: Marky, we need you bud. But we also need PO's.

       

      At season-end, we'll sign you to 4 yrs x 5 mill(100%)

      Make PO's: 4 x 5.5

      win a rd: 5 x 5.5

      win 2 rds: Add a yr or half-mill, etc....

       

      So basically give him certainty, but also incentive to keep starring like a King.

  18. Did JB just say Bess is done fir the year?  

  19. Really want the Coyotes to miss the playoffs.  Maybe it’s because Bill Nye the Science Guy creeps me out?

      that's only because they get to play boston so often

  25. Sakic trades for Kadri.  We need  JB to make several similar trades.  Move our best support players, who don’t provide meanness, for ones who will.

      I think it’s fair to say JB is great at the draft, but his UFA signings (and trades IMO too) are hurting our team.  We are now stuck with older guys, who are supposed to be the support/role players, that are soft and refusing to play hard for Green.  It’s either change them, or get a new coach those guys will both respect and fear.  Babcock is the only available coach who can do both.  Or, we stay the course and clearly miss the playoffs, while watching our young elite core get killed.
