  1. Morning guys. Been loving everyones assessment of the camp, even the bag skate microscopes lol. I have 5 tickets for today's camp, I was going to take the 4 kids but we just got my eldest sons soccer game time and we double booked ourselves this morning. I'm not wanting anybody's money, just someone to enjoy them, so message me if interested. Reminder its 9:30/10-1. So make sure you can go before you message me and First come first serve. Go Nucks GO!
  2. I do agree with this, but in the currant NHL landscape, you aren't going to be able to trade for an early 20's goalie that has the potential to be elite. I'm sure CP camp said hey we know quick is a back-up or hang-em-up guy now, and we are your only option. I think CP won now but a fair deal in 2 years. Kings will be good again by then.
  3. Gunna look great on a jersey! Im sure Ill think tan man for the first couple games but then I'll be all good!
  4. Garland might be a new fan favourite. Guy seems pumped to play, and more importantly, pumped to F*king work!! Winning takes effort in this league and you can't win on pure skill. I think thats what JT brought in the most that first year was work ethic, last year not as much, but it rubs off on the guys. Cant wait!! Hughes not being here makes the OEL signing even more special. I might of missed it, any idea what number Garland is wearing?? Gotta get the next Jersey ready
  5. Fair deal. I’m sure the jets would of liked 5, but the guy chews up 20 mins a night and has an offensive touch as well. Probably money well spent.
  6. 100% agree, could be great to have that friendship back and that extra little bit of lightweight toughness. Might be behind the scene issues but Bo could maybe keep him in line. Or J.T might need another project now that Jake is donezo
  7. Interesting. Good find. How will they make that work? Hedman back just in time for the playoffs? And to sign hall at the deadline....
  8. How does the NHL not keep an eye on this. Not to sound like a complainer, but this team that was in obvious cap issues in the off-season last year. Then Kucherov, needs season ending hip surgery, which allows them to be cap compliant and still get good young players signed. Then, miraculously, playoffs start, and he’s ready to go when the cap doesn’t matter. Maybe all this terrible Canuck hockey has made me negative but to me this is cap circumvention no? I just remember thinking there would be offer sheets and stuff for Cernak, etc, and then when Kuch was out I was thinking, ah convenient, now it’s just too suspicious. anyways, just my thoughts. enjoy the playoffs gents and ladies!
  9. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.tsn.ca/new-jersey-devils-place-nikita-gusev-on-unconditional-waivers-1.1620794%3ftsn-amp I’ll start with that I don’t start that many threads. thoughts on this gentleman and ladies? If we sign him before Monday he would be eligible to play playoffs, and I know that’s a huge IF. Buttttt do we take a flyer on him. He is a top 6 assuming he fits, he would be an all or none signing. His 4.5ish contract is terminated so we could sign him to 1? 2 million for 2 years. Anyone know if him and pod have history?? Or even tree? thanks for the opinions.
  10. How great for burrs. Wish it was with the Canucks but I’m happy for him, one of my all time favorites. Do Canucks hire Claude?? No quarantine being already in Canada?!
  11. quite the opposite, he's a locker room favourite. And the reason why Tanev signed in Calgary, who has made a big difference for that team.
  12. I've talked about it on here before, 6 million for Lucic was the going rate at the time, and yes he is no where near that value now. But I know for a fact that he turned down 7 million to go play in Montreal because he wouldn't put on a Habs jersey after the Boston days.
  13. I 100% agree with this. I remember stats from when Lucic played in Edmonton, there was less man games lost to their stars. Milan scares people, everyone stands a foot taller when he plays. People are less likely to take liberties. If you remember Bieksa last year when Sam Bennett was out throwing like 7 hits a game. It was when he joined Lucic's line, and bieksa even said' how big do you think Sam Bennett feels right now'. even last night, we were playing the body and making hits and getting scrappy. Then during a faceoff, Lucic took off a glove and pointed to his head and addressed Rooster saying use your head and it all stopped. Macewen was also playing the body hard on the first period, and then Milan talked to Mac and I bet he said something along the lines of' keep it up and you deal with me', and it stopped. We need a slight fear factor, which we tried to address in Ferland. Just bad luck he's got a soft head.
  14. I wonder why the Jackets don't move on from Torts. If Laine doesn't gel with him. I see a coaching change before another trade.
  15. Anyone else feel like the aliens from space jam zapped all Petey's talent. Man that poor guy is struggling. he'll battle through but we need him sooner than later.
  16. I agree, we continue to battle through it, and the refs did not determine last games outcomes, but it did determine game 3 in the St. Louis series. I imagine every fan base has a bias towards the refs, but I think it is high here in Vancouver, myself included. I can't imagine Connor taking 2-3 heavy crosschecks to the low back like Petey did last game and not seeing an arm go up. It distracts me from the game sometime when I'm yelling at the refs but I agree with Deb I just wanna see the guys work hard and the rest will sort itself out!
  17. F*ck Ya it is Baby!!! So awesome! the best part for me is we are technically not even in the 'Window" of when nicks should compete. This is all gravy/bonus. Incalculable experience for the young core!! 2 hours left!!
  18. my 6 year old has been practicing his WOOOOOO's all morning. Game Day Baby!!
  19. How much better would this play offs be if we had John and John calling the games. They would've lost their sh*t in games 5 &6!! Go nucks Go, another tough series but lets slay some knights!!
  20. I'm the same. I plan my day around it, and if I know I'm at work with patients I record it and make sure no one tells me the results. It just isn't the same as live tho, I get a little over excited with the fats forward button!!
  21. Take it easy Torts. Rip in to Luc Dubois for a bit instead! jk. Marky was making fun of himself post game in the marky/bo interview. He'll be better next series!
