  1. this is kind of like getting an n64 for christmas in 2002 when you were asking for it back in 1996.
  2. gaudette will never be a consistent top 6 guy. I like the guy, I'm a fan, I hope he jams my opinion down my throat, but I'm glad he's going to be trying to do so in a different uniform. the canucks don't need anymore sven baertchis.
  3. moving tweeners for guys who fit a role makes perfect sense. gaudette isn't top 6 and isn't bottom 6. he should be in europe. same with virtanen.
  4. jesus, jason blake? niklas hagman? I genuinely forgot these guys existed.
  5. good stuff. glad bo gets to keep the only linemate he's ever developed consistent chemistry with in his career.
  6. let it be known that I don't want to be associated with this absolutely atrocious take in any way, shape or form.
  7. I personally can't think of anything LESS enjoyable than going for a jog. I also find doing photoshop work fun. it's almost like different people enjoy different things.
  8. doesn't get much better than a late season battle for 5th place. should be a barnburner.
  9. he hasn't missed a game since he and the Canucks trainers/equipment staff went through his gear piece by piece in the name of maximizing it's protective abilities prior to last season.
  10. I prefer to think of it as fact versus fantasy, but to each their own.
  11. the point is that $10 mil game changer right shot dmen don't become available, and when they do once every 10 or 15 years, they don't go to teams in canada that aren't cup contenders.
  12. but at the end of the day you have to choose between the kid you scouted in the dub and the kid you scouted in the USHL who is committed to the NCAA and that latter path is proving to be a more reliable way to draft and develop NHL players, so unless the local kid blows the doors off and you think he can make the leap right away to the nhl, you go with the USHL kid because you don't have to send him back to a junior league for a year or 2 before you can actually develop him.
  13. I'd rather benning and his team focus on NCAA/USHL/USNTDP/etc and European players anyway -- they seem to be far easier to forecast and the hit rate is higher than the CHL, and the dub in particular is pretty weak. Canadian junior hockey desperately needs to change something because they're falling way behind.
