  1. Carter was loved by fans and the team alike when he was here. Pretty much all 33 goals he scored were because of the Sedins not by his skill. He says he was “surprised” that we wanted to sign the Sedins instead of him? Errr... come again? He was an aging star on the decline only made better by two young upcoming superstars. He wanted too much money, and the Canucks weren’t going to give him that. Simply because he wasn’t worth what he was asking. Race had nothing to do with it!


    After we refused to give him What he wanted, he was pretty much out of the league a year or so after. We have a lot of diversity in our drafting and prospects (Subban and Woo?), so it seems like a bunch of bologna to me. 
     

    Using the current BLM movement to throw the Canucks under the bus showcases his selfishness and true character. What a diva.

  2. Can’t say I’m surprised to be honest. They’re a lot of these types of jerks in the real world.

    It’s completely inappropriate to make comments about a former teammate’s wife,  especially if it’s regarding weight since it’s a sensitive topic for a lot of people. And the racist comments, there is no defending that no matter what anyone says. 
    I’m glad we waived this loser. 

  3. I’m with you. Believe me, I’ve met some awesome Canuck fans but I’ve also met some truly ridiculous ones too. I find it can go two ways:

     

    There’s the ones that stick with the team through thick and thin and try to look at the positives, but aren’t afraid to be constructively critical when appropriate.

     

    And then you have the incessant whiney fans that pick apart every little move JB makes and say he’s the worst GM ever. Even though he’s restocked an empty prospect pool, got us a very good young core that is just breaking into the NHL and making good hockey trades that will come valuable in playoff time. Every loss is all Green’s fault even though he’s done great things with This young team. 
     

    Unfortunately, the bandwagon crew is the loudest. I try my best to just tune out the noise.

    We have a competitive team when our goalie plays like prime Hasek.

     

    Our prospect pool is nothing special relatively speaking as all the other teams have similar prospects.

     

    Madden could have been a cost-controlled 2-year ELC which would have been nice because idk if you've seen our cap situation but it isn't looking good. He could have slotted anywhere in the lineup, because, let's face it, we have garbage, overpriced wingers. 

    Oh noooo the world is ending!!:rolleyes:

     

     our prospect pool was ranked #8 in Sporting News and #13 by the Athletic and consistently hovers in the top 10 ish rankings (mind you before Madden left)  but yeah, I’d say our pool is pretty solid.

     

    Madden hasn’t even turned pro, and is unproven. Not too mention is really light. Has good potential and made strides, but until he lights up Pro, he would not make it over Podkolzin or Hoglander. ELC apply to them too btw.
