  1. I don't think I'd hold it against a player for trying to get more than his current team is willing to pay though either. Its their career after all It would depend who the team was, but I think I still rather EP40
  2. It would have to be 4 1st round picks for the Canucks to even consider, even then I don't think I would
  3. Scheifele actually had a play on that puck. Whether you'd like to think so or not. The play being to separate his man from the puck so the team could go the other way for a chance at a game tying goal. You can damn well bet his teammates and coach would not have taken kindly to anything but making an attempt to separate the man from the puck there
  4. If 1/10th of a second is the determining factor between clean and not, in the fastest game in the world.. man. Love the hit. Hope Evans is ok. The onus has to be on the puck carrier, too. Today's NHL lets the puck carrier do as they please with their heads in their chests, not even aware of their surroundings
  5. It actually could have prevented the goal, he was a split second late. Had he been there 1/10th of a second earlier, it could still be a 1 goal game He will get suspended, but only because its 2021
  6. So now we are taking calls on the ice as the ultimate source of truth? Have we never seen a call on the ice that wasn't deserved, or flat out incorrect? That is not charging. The ref had to do something because of the optics, and its a 2 goal game late. It would be a brawl after if he was not tossed
  7. Scheifele stopped skating and started gliding just as he entered the blue line...on a play where the puck was dumped in, so every player is taking strides into the zone. How is that charging???
  8. No issue with the hit. Hard, fast game. These collisions are inevitable, especially in the playoffs of a 1 goal game. Can you imagine how Scheifele teammates would feel seeing him do a fly by at that point of the game? He is their captain. Can't believe people think this should be anything more than the call on the ice. Even the call on the ice was questionable, but the game is a 2 goal game late, would only turn into a brawl if he wasn't tossed
  9. How did I know that your complaining of Benning would loop back to ole Jonathan Dahlen?? Infamous Dahlen who should be playing 1st line LW in the NHL now, if it wasn't for that dang Jim Benning. Can't believe he wanted to stunt a studs career like that!
  10. I can tell you're incredibly proficient at comparing players. Given Stechers 3x more points than Gudbranson, we're using this years numbers as concrete, am I doing this right now?
  11. These days it almost feels like, the more outrage you see for a Benning move on CDC, the better the move was for the Canucks
  12. Besides that being a pretty poor analogy, Pearson being his size vs Sheary size, he is able to be a kind of player that Sheary simply cannot Any hockey mind in the world would prefer the bigger/heavier player come playoff time, if their offensive/defensive contributions are somewhat similar
  13. I don't think the format of how this season was done, is an accurate depiction on the player. Perhaps both players continue on with this years productions levels, but I think career numbers and their last 'full' season provides a better view
  14. If you are actually comparing Conor Sheary to Tanner Pearson, come playoffs tell me which player you'd rather have? Conor Sheary - 5'9 178lbs Career PPG: .46 19/20 PPG: .36 Playoff PPG: .34 Tanner Pearson - 6'1 200lbs Career PPG: .46 19/20 PPG: .65 Playoff PPG: .45 I know who I'm taking, every single dang day of the week. And it ain't even close
  15. I'm convinced Benning could cure cancer and you'd have these same people complaining about why it wasn't diabetes or some other ailment
  16. I'm glad you have the police report which displays the child exactly 50 ft from the lake. Again, don't hurt yourself with all the jumping
  17. Hope you dont hurt yourself peteyboi, with the jumping to conclusions and all Pretty easy to tell who has kids and who doesn't, and also that certain people seem to have never met a 3 year old before, given their statements and comparisons to locking a child in a car cmonnn man
  18. The team does not owe gamblers anything. The team does not owe fantasy players anything. The fans are the only ones who the team owes, and even then, they don't owe the fans an exact timeline for his return, especially when it may be unknown to even them.
  19. Who cares though? What difference does knowing when he will be back make for you? Are you planning on going to a game and want to see him play? Like DeNiro said, had they presented a time line and it became longer, a certain segment of this fan base who are up in arms over anything, would be doing so. He will be back when you see #40 on the ice.
  20. ooof, this is a bad take. People who say this are likely the same ones who would be calling for JB's head had he simply re signed Louie Domingue, or a goalie of his ilk, instead of Holtby. Demko simply was not proven enough to be anointed the starting goalie in the off season. 2 years of Holtby at 4mil and that is now the next gripe with JB? smh
  21. Whether you'd like to acknowledge it or not, in the next 1-2 years we would be searching for this type of player that we traded away for a mere 2nd round pick Why would you sell now, only to need that same player as early a next season? Heck, we need that player this season too.
  22. Motte for a 2nd is not 'selling high' on a player. Hope you get a clue
  23. Your Benning hate definitely doesn't shine through in every single post you make. Motte for a 2nd? You'd have to be incredibly short sighted to do this trade. Motte for a 1st? Yea, lets talk.
  24. Are you concerned at all on the amount of the deal HZON holders will get? ala UWMC
  25. My SL was raided early on in CCIV, walked out with a profit ,but would be 5x my buy in by now had I not set any! I have not set a SL on an SPAC since
