  1. The Vancouver Canucks would like to place Galchenyuk on IR https://www.tsn.ca/nhl/injuries The Vancouver Canucks recall Givani Smith to take Gally's spot for the interim.
  2. Hahha, thank you for leaving him in your minors I guess. I just have a unique bad situation that he may help resolve. Evander Kane's 6m dollar situation and Tuukka Rask behing injured and without a deal left me holes and money. Meanwhile Jeff Skinner has a new coach and appears to be back on the top line, after spending last year in the doghouse of the old coach on the fourth line. I am hopeful I can poach some bounceback and at the same time have him help me flesh out my roster. Cheers
  3. I like that you have Pod, Pettey and M. Tkachuk! well i don't like like it but i am jelly hahaha
  4. Most Excellent news~!! I will let Azzy know via pm who is going to be waived to make room as i think that is how it goes.
  5. I didn't actually expect to lose him on the big waive, but none the less Sam deserves to be in the bigs, so I am happy for him. Enjoy New Jersey and thanks for all you have done here for us.
  6. The LA Kings want to remind you, this year in particular, to paint it black out there folks. reserved for LAK team stuff...don't touch my stuff, i am willing it to my ghost.
  7. Vancouver Canucks Team Business and Roster Report to start the season! Assignment in time to be waived with the big waive: Vancouver assigns(or waives if it can't be just done with the big waive) Sam Lafferty to the Minor League Affiliate. Recall: Vancouver recalls Sampo Ranta from the minors to fill Sam's vacant spot. Opening Night Roster to be compliant in time for the waive: Jason Robertson, Anze Kopitar, Denis Gurianov Alex Formenton, Evan Rodriguez, Shane Pinto Alex Galchenyuk, David Kampf, Erik Haula Jordan Martinook, Colton Sissons, Derek Grant Sampo Ranta Brian Dumoulin, Tyler Myers Ryan McDonagh, John Klingberg Jamie Oleksiak, Jeff Petry Alex Carrier, Jani Hakanpaa Semyon Varlamov David Rittich Might be one or two last minute moves as we have an injury in the lineup that may or may not affect opening night, but with only Sam Lafferty waiver eligible in the minors, I am happy with this lineup being OFFICIAL. Thank you Nail and thank you AJ09 for doing the ELC work up to this point.
  8. I also hope to see Bailey in the lineup, MacEwan is not my guy for the job.
  9. I hope to see him in the lineup opening night. Our club has a vast deficit on the defensive side of the game...losing a defensive oriented guy would be insane.
  10. I am a fan of Juolevi's defense. In defensive measurements, I have him 3rd best blueliner in the organization. I think it would be a mistake to not have him in the lineup.
  11. I don't want to trade him at all, he is doing good in the O zone, but i do want him to play like an NHL Defender before he tries to play like a NHL top six forward. I have yet to see what I want from him though. it is no secret that I prefer Olli J. in that OJ the Spearfisher knows how to stop pucks from going in the net at his end of the ice: but to be honest, he could stand to do a little more at the other end too, haha...maybe an OJ/Rathbone hybrid would be a phenom in the league. haha
  12. Rathbone is very lucky McDavid, Draisatl, and a few others are getting the night off....he has to learn that you can't have any pudding until you eat all your meat. That is to say he wants to play like an offensive forward before he really nails down playing Defence in the NHL. Hope he gets lots of ice time and devotes it to blueline duties.
  13. I won't be posting a depth chart just yet as we have some unexpected battles at the forward slots in camp..the cup is more than all the way full! huzzah
  14. Vancouver Canucks Team Business: Assignment: The Vancouver Canucks assign Alex True to the minor league affiliate Abbotsford Canucks. Recall: The Vancouver Canucks recall Alex Carrier from the Abbotsford Canucks. ELC SLIDE CANDIDATES, each under age 21 today: Topi Niemela Matthew Robertson Adam Beckman
