      Wouldn't be surprised to see him end up in Ottawa tbh

      He could probably play top 4 minutes in Edmonton.

      Lol he's all yours, Calgary.

      Fernie has decent beers. I used to like them more but damn there are soooo many good options these days :)

      If I buy a beer twice, it means i REALLY liked it.

  4. Benning flips a coin. 1/2 the people are mad.

      Yea well he just needs to make sure the coin lands how us Canucks fans want it to. Simple.

    3. nzan



      1/2 are mad. The other half are mad at the people who are mad.

      I would land in the second half - but yesterday on twitter I'm sure I didn't see one person blowing up about Petey's comments, everything I read was just people blowing up on those people (who I assume actually existed but never saw for myself).

    4. Ghostsof1915


      Correction to the correction:

      1/2 are ok with it.

      The other half are saying it's tails, when it's heads.

      Or saying because it's tails, the team needs to change owners, management, and players. 



  5. Hey Nux - you are in Osaka, correct? we're thinking of making a trip back to Japan, just wondering if you know of any ski resorts near you that have nordic areas.

      Don't mean to pre-empt @Nuxfanabroad, but my wife who is from Himeji says that skiing is really nice around Nagano - in fact, it's sort of a ski mecca (90 resorts or so near Nagano City).  They should also have a number of resort type amenities based on winter Olympics build out from the 90s.  Maybe @Nuxfanabroad can confirm.  Hope this helps a little, @Jimmy McGill.

    3. Nuxfanabroad


      @bigbadcanucksSure has that right Jimmy. Nagano & of course Hokkaido, are world-renowned. Pretty sure you mentioned them places in the past. Did you say you'd been to one of them?(forget)


      Bigbad, Funny you mentioned Himeji, that lovely little Castle town your wife hails from. In the northern part of that prefecture(Hyogo) you might find this place interesting, Jimmy...




      They say it's a 2.5 hr bus ride north from Osaka. In such a place you 2 could prob find a charming, small Inn(Minshuku). Apparently there are 20 or so, up there.


      Hyogo's quite a large prefecture. Yrs back I'd cycle up there, directly north from Himeji city, we'd visit a little town called Haga. Had heard back then there were some nice resorts for winter sport in that region.


      Himeji Castle is also worth a visit. One of the remaining "original" castles & a UNESCO, world heritage site. Also used in several of Japan's most famous movies/shows(The Yakuza, Shogun, The Last Samurai, etc...)

    4. JM_


      awesome thanks guys. 


      We've only been tp Tokyo (which was pretty mind blowing) and this time we want to go somewhere smaller, and get some skiing in too. 

  6. Why is Hakanpaa still available?

      Elias Pettersson

      He was probably asking for more than people wanted to pay so teams like the Canucks went for the cheaper options.  He probably wants a 4x4 and he's only played one year in the NHL and is already 29 so some teams may have stayed away from him.  We might have overrated him as well.  Poolman may not be as imposing a force as Hakanpaa but based on his solid play in the playoffs playing top 4 minutes Shaw and Benning probably felt he was a better option for what they want and a safer bet.

    3. Podz19


      Maybe he's not that good

      He definitely did well today, these are the deals he should've been doing all along but I suspect there is massive interference from ownership sadly.  Even if poolman is a bust it shouldn't handicap the team, taking on OEL though.... yikes.  What got him to this point deserves criticism but he somehow found a way out that hole and learned from last offseason.  Today was definitely a good day for the team.

  8. Come on Petey, its nearly dinner time in Sweden. Sign that contract and go out to a nice restaurant.

      Come on "home" Petey.

      Or buy the restaurant.

      Think they're waiting to see what happens in free agency. Depending on that long term pr bridge deals 

  9. Has anyone added up how much contract value Jim moved and signed this week? has to be over $100 million.

      I can't wait to see what Petey's deal is.

      I’m really hoping it’s an 8 year deal. Would be fricken huge for us in 4 or 5 years

      Cheaper backup, two FA RD's, and a 4th line center. Exciting times.


    4. Grape


      @Jimmy McGill We can buy out his last two years pretty easily.


      Just hoping he can regain a step in his game in the first four years.

  13. So all Seattle came away with extra out of the ED was one 2022 4th? wow.

      So hard not to appreciate what Vegas did, looking at Seattle. 

      But realistically, it will be hard not to have a few “stars” develop out of who they have chosen given the amount of ice time and top line minutes they will receive in Seattle, one would think. 

    3. Ghostsof1915


      GM's learned from the mistakes of getting burned by Vegas. 

    4. Iron Fist

      Iron Fist

      The last expansion team hooked Seattle up after being nudged by the nhl to make Vegas work.   Seattle didn't get that luxury, Phoenix took everything this time.   And both Phoenix and Seattle are probably going for Bedard

  14. So the Oilers lost Larsson, Caleb Jones and a 3rd to keep Duncan Keith.

      Benning honestly did well here in this expansion draft. I'm curious what Seattle picks from NYI because NYI absolutely was a loser with that Andrew Ladd cap dump trade LOL.


      Edit: NYI lost Eberle.

      LOLOLOL. What an IDIOT Lou is. Protected Cal Clutterbuck and Matt Martin instead of Eberle.



    3. JM_


      I'd say Holland pooped the bed the worst. Losing Eberle for nothing was just bad. 


      Bergie the Clown tried hard too but Seattle saved him from himself.

    1. Alflives


      Schmidt for Risto.  

      Heard it here first.  :frantic:

    2. NUCKER67


      Jim's playing it cool, like he has nothing to do. There haven't been any changes yet, and my guess is because he's waiting for the expansion draft, then he'll do the buyouts, then the trades and signings, etc. As for what taking Pettersson's contract so long? tic toc Jim, you know how the clock hates you.

    3. JM_


      very likely Nucker. What might change this is another GM dropping something in our lap. 

  17. Evolving Hockey has Seattle picking Holtby.

      A $100 million playoff roster and they need a 6 on 4 to score their only goal against the Islanders.  I wonder what they will do next year?  Any more players they can trade for that are on LTIR?

    3. Dazzle


      I think the hockey gods will take action.

  20. Should we look at bringing back Fantenberg for next year? We need solid, cheap, players for one more year. Plus there would be a familiar face for Podkolzin.

      I was surprised nobody picked him up tbh, he was solid in his role 

    3. Teemu Selänne

      Teemu Selänne

      i thought Fanta played really well, but I kind of figure a combination of Juolevi, Edler & Bowey will be the bottom 3 D. If anyone gets moved though, he could be a solid addition.

    4. #Canucks


      Fantenberg is IMO one of the best 6/7 defenseman in the league. Cheap/Reliable. I would be more than okay with bringing him back.

      In fairness to this guy, he got taken out by a dirty Tkachunky play in the Edm bubble. But he's in danger of entering that irrational, Naz Kadri, flailing-gomer-mode.

      So which assistant would be getting the axe in this scenario? Can Muller run a Powerplay? Can he coach Defenseman?

    3. King Heffy

      King Heffy

      Willing to bet he can do a better job than both the clowns currently sabotaging the team with their incompetence but he has experience running a powerplay.  I would hope that we find another actual coach in order to replace Baumer as well; he is at risk of causing permanent damage to our young D group with his coaching.

      kirk muller would be a great head coach, just saying .

      What doesn't get discusssed enough has been just how solid the Canucks goaltending has been since even the Cloutier years (he only tended to 'melt-down' in the postseason).  No matter who was the GM, our goalie coaches have been generally consistantly (good).


      Even goalie prospects like Eddie Lack who had a short-lived NHL career, has some bright moments (and his ended early because of injuries.

    3. JM_


      ... and Demko pulls ahead some more last night :lol:


      I'm petty, I want to see Calgary melt down. 

    4. drummer4now


      What also doesn't get discussed NewbieCanucksFan is the mismanagement of these solid goaltenders over the years... From Cloutier to Markstrom.
