  1. Yeah Green was still under the delusion that he can either make the playoffs or they should play the best player every game. Except... Vessey / Boyd and the unknowns we picked up last season were a giant waste of time instead of developing our own prospects.
  2. with this... we used to have cap room. Not anymore after signing Hughes/Pettersson.
  3. Never would have guessed Burrows would turn into a coach lol. He was still biting fingers - didn't seem too long ago. In 10 years, may be he will be a well established head coach lol.
  4. lol? You dont believe a bankrupt person who's lost his whole lifetime earnings of around 50million on gambling or whatever he does would bet on his own games? Not one bit? Let's just throw names at the wife like disgrunted. The guy's a mess.
  5. Why is Sutter getting 1million. Roussel/Beagle should get off the team asap. And then here it is suddenly chill with people offering Dickinson 3.5mil AAV lol... He may suck, or may not fit the team at all. I dont know if arbitration rights come into play or not. But I would offer him a 1.5mil 1 year deal to see how things turn out. Canucks are just digging themselves into another salary cap hole handing out contracts like this to unproven players.
  6. Jake Bean is already a pretty good defensemen... Getting him for a 2nd rounder is just highway robbery. The moves by Carolina this offseason is just totally dumb. They had such a great up and coming team. Losing Hamilton for nothing too after trading their previous 2 #5 drafted players for him.
  7. Well hated him in 2014. Squashed as like bugs and we had no pushback whatsoever. You can tell he loves hockey though, so this is sad news to hear he won't be playing again. Good luck to him in his other pursuits!
  8. This kind of contract at 24... Horvat's draft class was still taking in 5.5x6 or 6x6s contracts.. I guess he did score 20 goals a couple of years ago. If he performs at that level from 24 to 30 years old - his best years, this contract would be well worth it. But these kids are getting their huge pay day way too earlier.
  9. You trying to say that Hamonic and Poolman are similar level players is lol. (btw I am ok with the Poolman signing, I even think it is decent and could surprise to the upside)
  10. Hope we can get him some games in. He is worth a look at.
  11. So... I think we still have like 5mil of cap how's it going to be used? Unless we are overpaying on Pettersson/Hughes/Dickinson...
  12. lol 3 years at 850K you can tell he really loves the team.
  13. So.. Myers, Hamonic, Poolman? I could live with that.
  14. I think decent deal for Vegas. This guy can probably still score a bunch on a good team.
  15. Nothing to complain at that price. Welcome back Sutter!
  16. Uhhh.. So all the big name RDs we were supposed to target are gone, unless I am missing someone.
  17. Gagner didn't play too poorly. He was like 100x better than Eriksson. And we even have Eriksson defenders on here. Little things and defensive specialist. Another mysterious unknown hate for a past Canuck.
  18. Wtf is Carolina doing... They are like blowing up their own team which has been trending up....
  19. lol... so much for denying rumors Schmidt requested trade. Cough Benning and Schmidt. Jets have lots of room to improve their D, a 3rd is all they are willing to pay? Cheapskates! I guess the league runs by, this is how much you originally got Schmidt for though.
  20. Yeah but Bennet plays a pretty heavy game. Gritty and can fight really well. Bennet's also played 6 full NHL seasons, you basically know what you are getting even if he doesn't score. If he adds scoring to those attributes, 4.25mil is well worth it. Garland on the other hand, 5'10, if he doesn't score...
