  1. Is Mika Zibanejad the most underrated premier player in the game? He got off to a rough start last season because of COVID, but the floodgates eventually opened as soon as he got back into shape. What type of season are you all expecting from him?

      That's kinda the opposite.. The Ranger's been allocating 8-9million cap space so they can re-sign him next year. Hence the undervalued Buchnevich trade.

  2. This is by far the most insane NHL stat I have ever seen, maybe the most insane sports statistic in history!

  3. Latest on Quinn Hughes contract, hearing 8 mill but not the term, hope it's for 7 years or so if that's the case. Last week it was a 6.95 mill deal at 5 years, sounds like price jumped bigtime and they're going back and forth, very fluid situation, also still nothing on Elias Pettersson contract

      8mil for Hughes only leaves 6 mil for Pettersson, how is that going to work?

  4. You'd think it would be illegal to deny someone access to a business based on your medical or health status. I believe it's called discrimination.

      You are joking right? It's a contagious virus, it means your status actually puts other people at risk - at risk of catching the diseases and dying. If a business or government wants to create an environment with a certain degree of safety, that's called being responsible. You can take your freedom and discrimination free to use card elsewhere - once the world returns to some normalcy - when people aren't entering ICUs daily.

  5. holtby has a better save percentage than markstrom. and is ranked 42 in the league for save percentage.

     

    i believe a .910 is the correct value for 4.3m so not to far off

      The league have 32 teams, 64 goalies on paid roster. You pit 2 goalies and their performances and determine "fair salary" gosh... /facepalm. 

       

      By the way, no need to bash Markstrom, he has played beautifully for us and a goalie's performance is hugely influenced by the team in front of him.

  6. Matt Sekeres just released a nuclear bomb on Francesco and Jim

    1. Drakrami

      Outstanding and valid points Sekeres is making there. Instead of being off topic and calling him irrelevant, may be you should listen to the 3minute clip. Some times I just feel like Canucks is operating a troll farm of forum posters, the blind support from some posters is just /facepalm. @Curmudgeon

  7. Team chemistry is all messed up. Slot in Loui and trade Miller. It’s our only option.

    1. Drakrami

      Drakrami

      Not sure we can get more than a 1st + 3rd the price we paid for Miller lol. And people were hailing it as the deal of the century and we probably couldn't sell for more.

  8. Reminder on why we passed on Tkachuk: 

     

    1. Drakrami

      Drakrami

      Tkachuk 260 points vs Juolevi 1 point; I'd take Tkachuk any day. 

       

      here's a video to your passing on sticks effort.

      Really not a big fan of having brothers on the same team. Obviously Sedins are the exception with their twin power. Not so big on Hughes either. You mention his height, but he looks like a skinny kid in the pictures and both his brothers are skinny. I doubt he plays a heavy game and I dont want anoher pushover for our future defense. Obviously I am not the best judge since I haven't even seen him play.

  10. Vancouver didn't re-sign TT who ends up being Montreal's best player lol. That's embarrassing and really hard to defend on JB's part. 

    1. Drakrami

      Drakrami

      uhhh... 11 of his 13 points are vs the Canucks. Instead of him being a really good player, it is more like we are playing like trash vs Montreal.

  11. Why does it seem like this team has regressed this year? We have virtually no cap with key players leaving and hard/crippling money spent on the bottom 6.

     

    Will we even make the playoffs this year?

    1. Drakrami

      Drakrami

      lol stop jumping the gun. 

      Our young players, are better, 1 year older. 

      Schmidt is a number 1 Dman we stole. Vegas has been doing so well, and Schmidt is a big part of that. A bit of underestimating here..? 

      Holtby is an upgrade over Markstrom in my eyes. 

       

      My main concern is our defensive depth. If our top 4 gets injured, there is really nothing solid to fall back on.

  12. Nicklas Jensen has a PPG in KHL and almost a goa per game. 

     

    1. Drakrami

      Drakrami

      huh... it's the other way around. Radulov, Panarin, Dadonov, Kuznetsov, Gusev have all done well in the KHL and their production transferred to the NHL. Dunno how well borderline players will do such as Linden Vey and Nicklas Jensen. But won't be surprised at all if they are offered NHL jobs 1-2 years down the road.
