  1. The boys will figure things out. November is not panic season.

      It would be more concerning if the Canucks were getting consistently outshot every game, but they haven't been:

      The median shooting percentage at 5 on 5 this season is about 8%. They won't continue to shoot this poorly.

  2. So the Demko kid is wiping the floor with the other rookie goalies. 

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      It would be a ballsy move by Jimbo for sure. I suppose like anything its always a question of whats the return. 

    2. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      He's looked as good as Markstrom at a younger age, it's super encouraging. You need two good goalies to make the playoffs though, one hasn't made the other expendable just yet. 

    3. Alflives

      Another great draft pick by JB.  Extend Marky and trade Demko to recoup the late first TBay takes from us in 2020.

      I posted that he would be a point per game player or slightly better than that this coming season, looks like I'm wrong....100 point season?

  4. Eriksson for <other teams crap> is not a good trade idea. Ever. 

    1. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      The only Loui trade idea I'm keen on is Loui for Backes. 

    2. #Canucks

      #Canucks

      Eriksson is better than other people’s crap. He’s at least some what responsible defensively. Is contract expires at the right time. I would rather keep him around than trade even a second with him to get rid of him.

       

      Edit: unless it’s James Neal. Like wtf Calgary.

    3. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      Neal for Lucic was a no-brainer. 

       

      I bet they're asking Benning about Loui for Lucic :lol:

      he's the best richmond-born defenseman to ever play for the chicago blackhawks

    3. coastal.view

      coastal.view

      even at 50% retained

      he will be an anchor for any team that hopes to contend

      and his contract lasts forever still

      he needs some sort of resolution via ltir

  6. Sbisa claimed by Winnipeg today. Good for Luca. 

    1. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      He got a lot of $&!# while he was here but he was a good foot soldier out there for us. Especially his second year. 

    2. King Heffy

      King Heffy

      He's fine as a 7/8 Dman.  A little worried he'll have to play over his pay grade again but the only other team as desperate for NHL dmen is Toronto.

  9. Very happy for Bo. Guy worked his ass off, exceeded expectations and is going to be C of a team. Nice when the good guys get rewarded. 

    1. Darius

      Darius

      yup.  i remember how they started him on the fourth line when he broke into the league.  He keeps improving every year.  The epitome of hard work and character.  That said can you imagine if tonight you hear the in house announcer  "Ladies and gentlemen your new captain......Alex Edler"...

  12. Who is going to be the biggest name on waivers tomorrow? 

    1. BrockBoester

      goalie13

      Nugent-Hopkins has a pretty big name with 14 characters, but I don't think he's going on waivers.  Fantenberg has 10 letters.  Or maybe some Finnish guy, they have big names.

  13. CBJ only has 9 regular roster Fs with Dubinsky out indefinitely with an injury.... we have lots of Fs.....

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      weird how that happens. Its like Sutter with us. 

       

      Sure seems like there could be several trade possibilities btw Vancouver and CBJ. I don't think there's going to be a Laine offer sheet but I guess you never know. 

    2. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      I wouldn't be surprised if Buff just straight up retires and they get bridge deals done for both. I don't see how that'd help them though. Their defense has been pretty decimated and they'll likely need to trade one of their pending guys for defensive help.

       

      Moving Laine is a tough pill to swallow though because of what he's done thus far at his age. 

    3. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      Im suspicious of this Buff 'holdout'. I think he'll sit and recover from last years ankle problems just long enough to clear enough accumulated cap to sign Connor and Laine to bridge deals.

  14. Glad Sautner cleared waivers and isn't the newest Coiler. 

    1. 48MPHSlapShot

      Sautner can actually play defense. Doesn't fit the Oiler model.

      so then who's gonna get bumped once Roussel is back? 

    3. luckylager

      I don't really care, but it won't be Sven.

      Telling you, he's gonna be huge for us this season.

       

      Pretty sure he had the highest points per 60 mins on the team last year. I'm sure his head is all healed and he's going to light it the &^@# up. He's looked way better than Goldy this preseason. Way better.

  16. The temperature seems to be going up over Brock. I blame his agent, I think he's the unreasonable party in all this. Lets not forget Brock is good people and under a lot of stress before sending out the wolves. 

    1. DADDYROCK

      DADDYROCK

      As fans we really don't know what goes on behind closed doors ,but we have seen what an upstanding young man Brock is and we all really want what's best for him,and his family.

      So be patient and I'm sure it will all work itself out for the best.

       

      GO CANUCKS GO!

      Every fan base gets upset with these types of deals.

  18. Things going from bad to worse on WPGs blue line - Buff taking "personal leave" away from the team.

      @redhdlois I think Brock would've requested personal time off if he wanted it. I think it's "just" a matter of term and a bit of money. I'm sure he'll sign.

      Winnipeg has tons of cap space. They should trade for Honka.

      If they want a younger slightly improved version of Myers, they know how to get a hold of the Sabres.   Ristolainen won't come cheap though.

      My thing is I hate smoke, period.  I smoked (heavily) for awhile but just hate any kind of smoke as it's an irritant to me.  And the smell of weed is putrid. 

      I AM fully on board with exploring the medical properties should I ever need to.  It's much more natural than the chemicals they pump at us through the pharm industry.  I steer clear of them, so would be inclined to go that route.   

      We partied, hard, when I was young and so I'm trying to make up to my body for all that abuse early on.

      its all good Mike. We've always just used Presidents Choice for our dogs and they've been healthy happy pups. Yeah I break down and give them the occasional scrap but for gods sake their lives are so short and they like it so much I just can't help it sometimes. One thing I do avoid tho is giving them fatty stuff. I often give them leftover rice and they seem quite thrilled by that. For some reason it seemed like an ok idea to give them the leftover miso chicken..... it was probably that I was on my 3rd gin. Maybe I should have mentioned that earlier.

  25. Would Loui for Kesler straight up work? Kesler would be on LTIR but if they take Loui they get a decent player and don't have to expose a younger F to Seattle like they would if they keep Kes.
