  1. this is the key point and everything else is more or less nit picking over what is 'good' and what is 'great' which sounds long conversation.
  2. Looks like they've added some nice features. Will look good on my PS5 as well... god damn you EA take my money for another glorified roster update.
  3. Based on the sheer excitement about the trade I have to go with the Luongo deal. I don't recall any other trade, the moment it got announced, making me so excited to be a Canucks fan. It signaled the end of the goalie graveyard, and propelled us to having one of the better goalie systems in the league today. The Naslund deal makes sense as the winner though. Alex who?
  4. Garland and Dvorak are the same age... Dvorak has played quit a few more games than Garland at this point in his career, but Garland has a higher points per game average Anyway just an interesting comparable.
  5. Either way, the very idea that they might is great and this random, very petty rivalry between the two organizations is a lot of fun to watch.
  6. SUch a tough one and really depends on the linemates. If I've got another pure sniper on the team I'm probably taking Doug Weight. One of the best passers of all time. If I've got a top set up man, Brett Hull no question. In a vacuum (why are we playing in a vacuum) it's gotta be P Kane but there's a lot of honorable mentions here.
  7. Nice post, great breakdown. Benning and co have clearly done wonders with the scouting and drafting dept... definitely will give credit where credit is due.
  8. I wish I had a snappy comeback but you win this round, smitherssssss joe
  9. If that ends up being the case, great signing. Hopefully he comes out and has a big first season.
  10. There's a bit of an unhealthy obsession with a few folks here on being "right"
  11. I take Vasilevskiy. He would shut down Lindros in his prime.
  12. I think he's done really well, overall. The sum of the moves goes together - on paper - to get a high grade from me. It's very odd to me that Jim Benning is repairing all of Jim Benning's mistakes... as Jim Benning... but there's something to be said about fixing your own mistakes quickly. Happy to let this season dictate the overall grade but looking forward to the season.
  13. “Gossip Girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan's Vancouver's elite"
  14. I didn't think you were on the team, it looks like you're on the sidelines with pom poms in hand.
  15. This is very true. "Everything is great!" they shriek, endlessly. "Every move our golden GM makes is purposeful and well thought out. Planned, if you will." "Losing is the fault of our fans, you see" they declare, simple-mindedly.
