  1. Meh. Madden wasn't clearly in the Canucks plans.
  2. WD WAS able to foresee Megna's greatness. I actually feel bad for crapping on WD throughout these years. I always knew he was a good guy, and didn't necessarily have the luxury of having the best rosters. In fact, he probably did more out of scraps and bolts than Green did.
  3. I think he'll be fine. He just needs some hands-on coaching. He has all the tools and attitude to succeed.
  4. Oh, this is just rich coming from you; the poster that blamed everyone else except Dahlen. Dahlen didn't get traded because of a concussion. That much is clear. Having the concussions afterward are unfortunate incidents. I wish them on no one. But the fact remains: Dahlen had a chance to play with Pettersson. All he had to do was play out the AHL year and shut up. Then train hard for the summer, come back for training camp and force his way into a lineup. But noooooo. Here's something from after the Dahlen trade. Did Benning lie about this? https
  5. Motte is found money for Canucks. And they give him for nothing? Not a chance.
  6. I fully agree. I don't think Baumgartner did a great job last season, but if the players wanted him gone, he would've been. There's probably more to him behind the scenes than what we can see in-game. Maybe Baumer is a positive, humble, hard working guy that players really can relate/respect. When the team sucked like ass, maybe Baumer tried his best to keep players motivated, without resorting to finger pointing. Hughes said Baumer was good during the exit interviews, FWIW.
  7. I don't think there's a need to throw away assets at this time. Shaw is going to improve a player like Juolevi, FOR SURE. Also, my understanding was that Shaw would be involved in everything, and given how he has so much experience with the D-Core, Baumgartner is never going to be solely responsible for it. I think you can rest easy.
  8. Yes. Also to be mentioned, this is, I believe, Dahlen's third season there. As someone else pointed out, Karlsson is 2 years younger. I am not impressed with Dahlen's stats at all, given how he didn't actually improve from the year before.
  9. He (Dahlen) actually regressed when you look at the stats. I have a very sour taste over how Dahlen handled himself here. All this talk about being buddies with Pettersson, but couldn't even finish the year in the AHL and got himself shipped out.
  10. I can see Brad Shaw turning OJ into an absolute stud that he was supposed to be in the first place.
  11. What's hilarious about this is that Dahlen didn't even wait the SAME YEAR, let alone wait until training camp/the year after to pout about his ice time/usage. He just assumed that he'd get his ice time, and yet didn't enjoy his stints on TWO AHL teams (the one in SJ as well). SJ was near the bottom of the standings at the time of the trade, and STILL couldn't earn the trust of his team to provide offence. Tiimrafan is just gonna make excuses, as usual, about "neanderthal" coaching. Instead of blaming his Dahlen for being self-entitled. I was actually pretty happy about the trade
  12. Why would this news leak out, if Columbus could trade him at the highest value?
  13. Some people watch other teams besides the Canucks. This is a forum for everyone. And I think this player has a positive message. I didn't prove your point. I proved that your point was stupid.
  14. He's a somebody for the Dallas Stars, considering he played his entire career there with them. Your point is stupid.
  15. Great message from the guy. I didn't know this player at all, but seems like he had some decent seasons. It's too bad that depression/concussion basically took the fun out of the game for him. Hope life treats him better.
  16. I don't get it. Why isn't Markus Naslund or Trevor Linden in this? Or Geoff/Russ Courtnall? Or Ronning? This Alumni thing makes zero sense.
  17. I would LOVE for someone reputable to call out Sekeres. We all know he's full of $&!# - but how is this particular post an example of that? We're reallllllllllly reaching if we consider this to be "calling out" someone? Sekeres merely asked a question - and Ferraro answered it.
  18. I think we shouldn't read too much into it. The deal is only one year, and the club said he'll be playing as a center in a professional men's league, while close to home after spending the entire time in NA. I think Jasek will see the NHL sooner rather than later.
  19. Yeah, maybe he just wants to go back to Europe for a little bit, considering he spent the entire time in the AHL/North America last year. He's only 23.
  20. Don't worry guys. I think after reading from another site, it's only a one year deal.
  21. Philly has no luck with injury prone guys. First, Lindros, now this guy...
  22. I feel thankful for all the Canadian staff, whether it's the politicians, the businessmen, and the medical team, for giving us the chance to survive this corona. There are other countries that just don't care about its people, and will turn a blind eye. We've seen examples in the US and in Brazil, but also the rest of the world. Sure, Canada has not been perfect in how they handled this crisis, whether it's their messaging, or their lockdowns, or what not. However, one thing for sure is that the country was trying to keep us safe, while trying not to affect the economy too much. Ca
  23. Yes. I also hate the 'moral police' crew who come in and openly accuse anyone who DOESN'T outright call Jake a rapist as being a rapist, or some kind of sympathizer to them. Found these people that you and I described on Twitter - and it's terrible.
