      I'd love to see them bring in more guys who've played more recently, get rid of some of the dinosaurs it's time for fresh voices. 

       

      Props to those who've had phenomenal careers but that doesn't mean they're entitled to broadcasting til they tire of it.

      Something weird is going on with Ron.

       

       

      There's always been something weird about Ron.

  4. Could a paring of Edler-Barrie be a good addition? I feel like Edler could be an ideal partner for Barrie. If we could get him at 5 mil AAV I'd be for it.

      @King Heffy @Nuxfanabroad OK you've convinced me :lol: just floating off season balloons.

       

      Awesome contribution  @Patrick Kane good to know I'm in your head rent free now :lol:

      If anything, I'm being overly generous to Barrie.  He has not done anything over his own career to prove he has any interest of learning to actually play defense.  While some may be willing to put up with the atrocious play in his own end, I don't think that kind of play is acceptable in the NHL.  You don't win Cups with defensemen incapable or unwilling to play like NHLers in their own zone.

    4. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      looking at the numbers today it looks to me like what happens is when Barrie is paired with a good partner they can really drive play but that partner has to really make up for the deficiency you point out. Man did TO ever give up a lot for the experiment.

  5. Can someone on waivers for a buyout stop being claimed if they have a NTC?

      @CanuckinEdm I think the best way to clear some cap is a) use a buyout on Sutter, and b) try to find a 3-way deal, where Loui's salary gets retained twice (see https://www.capfriendly.com/trades?multi-team) this way we might avoid giving up significant assets to dump his full contract. 

    3. Jimmy McGill

      if you're looking at it from a cash flow pov and really need the space the year we save 2.333 then it makes sense. Putting hm in Utica is the net best option tho. It all depends on the plan for a season from now. 

       

      Buying out Sutter and Baer covers most of Tanev's new deal. 

    4. peaches5

      peaches5

      @Chickenspear Yes and I was saying I don't even think a NMC can stop a buyout which it cannot.

  8. I retract my earlier comments about trading Demko to Detroit to dump Loui. He's worth too much for that now. 

    1. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      Jobert?

       

      I'm on the keep Demko wagon, I'm hoping for both but I'm reluctant to move Demko at all. 

    2. Ghostsof1915

      Ghostsof1915

      I take back what I said about letting Fantenberg go. 

      Maybe a slight raise if hopefully that's what it takes. He was way more solid in the playoffs than the regular season. 

    3. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      Fanta won me over too tbh, I figured he'd be one of the pieces we let go

       

      He's shown himself to be a valuable depth piece

  9. So much good came out of this run its insane. I'm sad and happy at the same time. #sappy

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      Petey became playoff Petey. Hughes... my god, what do we have there? Bo grew into the C. Demko had 3 legendary games. Despite some peoples comments I think Brock took real strides. Even Juolevi got a taste.I'm missing about a dozen other things.

       

      Benning has a big job ahead over the next few weeks, I can't wait to see what he does but whatever it is he has so much more confidence to bet on this group than before. 

    2. goalie13

      goalie13

      Totally agree.  The part that always gets me with a run like this, and even more so this year, is that we were still 9 wins away.  It's such a brutal tournament that way.

       

      Still, I like the strides the team has made and am excited for the future.

    3. NewbieCanuckFan

      NewbieCanuckFan

      Biggest thing to come out of this is Demko is realistic option for starting goalie.  Sorry for Markstrom, as he's played fantastic for us for a few seasons now but we're in a cap crunch.  And the upcoming expansion draft plays a factor as well.

  10. Petey now has as many career playoff points as McDavid. 

     

    https://www.hockey-reference.com/players/m/mcdavco01.html

    Petey is also a respectable 49% on face offs this playoffs too.

      Crazy that Mcdavid has only played that few playoff games.  Like Wilbur said, brought a huge smile to my face.  Thanks for the stat R.Long.

  11. well, its either an amazing run to win the series or we get to look back on an incredible growth year for the new core. S'all good imo. 

    1. Jimmy McGill

      it could be next year if Jim can find a way to shed Loui's deal and bring in another top 4 d man, which is where we're getting most exposed by Vegas imo.

  12. Is Erik Karlsson going to be the next "worst NHL contract"?

     

     

     

    Just perusing cap friendly as was reminded he's got 7 more years at 11.5 mil until he's 37. How does that possibly work out well? 

    1. Phil_314

      Phil_314

      Couple years down the line most likely.  Few more hard bumps and maybe a hip or leg injury on a slighter build like himself and I could see him become really injury prone and slower.   

    2. Quantum

      Quantum

      It's going to be a long decade for the Sharks. Jones, Karlsson, Vlasic, and Evander Kane contracts are going to age POORLY. Jones contract is already ageing badly. Burns contract could go either way. 

       

      I suspect Karlsson will be a compliancy buyout when that next happens. 

       

      Thank god I'm not a Sharks fan - LOL.

  17. Juolevi needs 40 more games of experience to qualify for expansion... I wonder if he'll see limited time in the 1st 1/2 of next season to not have to protect him?

    1. peaches5

      peaches5

      @DontMessMe They would be stupid not to. He is a top 4dman signed long-term. If you look at the Dman who will be available, obviously you can't see all of them until FA this year, he is the top of the list of best Dman potentially available.

    2. DontMessMe

      DontMessMe

      @peaches5 If I were them I would pick demko easily. Yes, there will be other good goalies available but u can always use them as trade chip. 

    3. peaches5

      peaches5

      @DontMessMe If they want to compete for the playoffs right now they can't be passing on Myers for an unproven goalie like Demko. Especially when he is signed and they can afford his contract. They could struggle to attract UFA's and I just think Myers has a lot more value to them.

       

      I'll add if Demko has a ton of value then Vancouver will just trade him.

  18. A guy goes into this bar, sits down and orders a drink.  While waiting, he sees a guy sitting at the bar who has a very big muscular body but a little tiny head.  So, he asks the guy, "How is it that you have such a huge body and a small head?" The guy replied, "I was walking along the beach one day and I came across this bottle buried halfway in the sand. So I picked it up, brushed away the sand, and out popped this fine female genie. She said she would grant me three wishes for releasing her." "For my first wish, I asked for ten-million dollars, and POOF right there on the sand was $10,000,00." "For my second wish, I asked for a luxury yacht, and POOF right there on the ocean was a 90-foot yacht." "Finally for my third wish, I asked to have sex with the genie, but she said that genies were not allowed to indulge in that kind of activities."  So, I said, "c'mon, how about a little head?"

  19. If someone told me months ago that the Canucks would be 2-1 in the 1st round vs St. Louis I would have been thrilled. 3-1, I would have said you were high. But that could happen tonight.

  23. What I did on my summer vacation.

     

     

     

     

     

    I was getting much too negative on here so I gave myself a 6 week self imposed time out. So I went over to HF Boards and trolled the Benning haters until I got banned :lol: it was fun and therapeutic. 

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      thats too funny, "lucky larry" was a guy that I probably interacted with the most :lol: he was actually OK on there, agreed with a few things I said. He is on the Benning dislike train tho, so maybe he needs to vent over there? 

       

      I don't know why he left, I am glad he hasn't kicked his oxygen habit. Maybe he'll come back better.

      yeah they really are. It seems to me to be very much about preserving their regulars for the online ad revenue. If you rock the boat they kick you out. I also happened to be using an ad-blocker which they don't like.

      yeah I don't see a GM giving up full control of the draft to anyone, but maybe Judd gets what he wants. Best of luck to him but I don't blame Jim at all, he offered and extension and it was rejected. Time to move on.
