  1. After DeAngelo gets bought out today please remember he's garbage as a teammate before suggesting he can change and we should sign him.

      Not a fan of Blizzard. They have been known to cater to the Chinese government's requests. Money talks with this company.

  3. Looking back at our draft history... our drafting/development was awful!

      The Schneider trade was a bad trade at first glance: trading away a known commodity (with a lack of developed goaltending prospects) for an unknown quantity, in which scouting is obviously a weak point of Gillis.

      If Dreger is to be believed, the return from Edmonton was supposedly a lot better than just a 9th. We'll never know. I'm not saying we 'should've' done that trade, but the return for ONLY a 9th is just bad.

      Hence my point, had Horvat not panned out, he would've been yet another long list of failed prospects. Gillis smugly said that his teams usually drafted "24 and above".

      @NewbieCanuckFan
      The problem is that 7 years ago and beyond that, he could've drafted a goalie for starters in any round, or a serviceable forward or defenceman, and we'd still be afloat.

       

      The only players of any consequence that he ever drafted was Hodgson, Hutto, and Horvat, during his 6 years here. Horrible.

      @bigbadcanucks It's not that it's news to me. I'm just reflecting on how godawful it has been leading up to the present. And yes, Gillis cannot be forgiven for how he unintentionally drained our prospect pool.

  7. Not so hot take - Seattle's expansion picks are absolutely horrific. They smoked pot.

      @NewbieCanuckFanThere's really no excuse though. A team that they've assembled thus far isn't going to be uplifted by some big named free agent signings.

  8. So the Oilers lost Larsson, Caleb Jones and a 3rd to keep Duncan Keith.

      Their picks are so unbelievably bad. Columbus had a number of intriguing pieces that Seattle could use - and Seattle decided to take the fringe players instead, like Bayreuther, who I hadn't even heard of until today.

       

      Could've taken Stenlund and Gabriel Carlsson instead. They IMO would've been way better picks, even for depth purposes.

       

      What's a player like Lind gonna do on Seattle? Is there a plan for Seattle to pick these players and hope that they surprise? Because I'll be really surprised if this expansion draft doesn't turn out to be a complete squander.

  11. Someone make me feel better about this whole thing plz

  12. Spoiler Alert:

    Kraken have picked Alex Kerfoot from Toronto! 

  13. I'm happy if Cuba breaks free from Communism. However my fear is they will replace one corrupt group with another corrupt group. And the people of Cuba will still get exploited. 

  14. So apparently PK Subban had Jerry Bruckheimer, co-owner of the Kraken, on his podcast a few months ago. He's also got 1 year left on his 9 million a year deal. I won't be shocked if the Kraken pick Subban. He's a recognizable hockey star and the Kraken do need to hit the cap floor. Won't be shocked if Subban is a member of the Kraken.

  15. I have a feeling Jim will make a move in the next 10 years. Just maybe....

      People love seeing trades happen for the sake of making a trade. Then they bitch about how useless the trade is. Actually, they'll bitch about how the Canucks didn't get enough of a return, thereby confirming the biases of the posters.

  16. Canucks just hired the guy who tried to hoard vaccines for members of Hollyburn in West Van. Tone deaf.

      @Jimmy McGillI see what you're saying. I don't condone the cancelling of this dude for doing his job as CEO. He's looking after the business, and he saw this as a way to 'benefit' his membership. The optics of it is bad - there's no denying that. However, calling him a scumbag is an oversimplification I think of the situation.

      I think Ed McLaughlin is well connected. How far is the "cancel culture" going to go for invalidating this guy as a person?

    Lately, I have noticed CDC has not been on it's best behaviour. Have we lost our ways? Lets play a game and get back to regaining our wonderful kind and thoughtful spirit i have come to known about us all. the rules are simple start a question/statement/saying and the next poster will answer it for you. 

     

    I'll start. If you have nothing nice to say...

  19. Did Dhalliwal just say Schmidt’s been traded?

      @Devron44 But you know Benning has a reason to lie! You know the media has less of a reason to lie because they're reporting 'what they hear', and it would be bad for their reputation if they make $&!# up!!!!

       

      Also, the people don't care about 'the truth', therefore, the media is justified to print out lies!!! #wallstreetamigo

    One of the cringiest articles I've ever read.  I am not a Macguire fan by any means but I always enjoyed it when he did color, even the 'can you believe it!' fiasco didn't even register to me.  The author writes like a 12yo, he shouldn't talk.... or write.  Maybe it's just me idk, seems pretty trashy to slam someone on thier way out.

  22. Please take away Jims phone before he makes another mistake. This would be 10x worse that Loui contract

      Honestly, this will be hilarious if we do get OEL and we move out Schmidt and another expensive contract out in the process. It might actually be for the best for both sides.

  23. Really would appreciate mod approval being needed for threads being started by people with very low post counts, at least until school is back in session.
