  1. Brock Boeser rejected $42 million contract offer from Canucks: report

    On-ice sessions at Vancouver Canucks training camp began in Victoria this morning without one of the team’s best players.

     

    Brock Boeser, still without a contract, is keeping in shape with his old college team in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and the pressure is ramping up for the Canucks to sign the 22-year-old star.

    So far both sides are saying all the right things. Canucks GM Jim Benning didn’t get into specifics when quizzed about negotiations on Thursday, saying simply that he was going to continue to talk to Boeser’s agent.

    But one nugget of information appears to have leaked from contract talks.

    Boeser turned down a six-year contract worth $42 million earlier this summer, according to a new report from TSN 1040’s Matt Sekeres.

     

    The rejected contract offer would carry a $7 million cap hit, which is close to the maximum the Canucks are able to offer Boeser given their current cap crunch.

    This could be the first sign that a long term deal may not be in the cards for Boeser. The longer the deal, the higher the cap hit is expected to be, given the team would be buying unrestricted free agent years beyond a five-year term.

     

    Of course, this could all change depending on who blinks first.

    While the Canucks technically have leverage — Boeser doesn’t have many options as a restricted free agent — Benning can ill-afford a slow start to the season that’s otherwise full of optimism.

    The Canucks’ first preseason game is on Monday, with the puck drops on the regular season October 2.

  2. Chicago is looking into the playoff...

    :bigblush:

     

    Stan Bowman did his best to improve the Chicago Blackhawks this offseason. Now, it is up to the players to go out and compete.

    Bowman brought in players like Andrew Shaw and Ryan Carpenter, he signed Robin Lehner to improve the goalie tandem, and he traded for Calvin de Haan and Olli Maatta to drastically change the defense.

    Bowman made a lot of moves this offseason, so he did his part to improve the Blackhawks.

    Bringing in depth players, defensive defensemen that can play in the top-4, and adding a Vezina Trophy caliber goaltender is one heck of an offseason.

    Even so, something else needs to happen for the Blackhawks to succeed. They need to learn how to play together again.

    To start the 2018-19 season, the St. Louis Blues were one of the most improved teams and one that could compete for a cup. By January, they were dead last in the NHL.

    We all know what happened in the months after January, but in the first half of last season, the Blues were a disappointment. The Blackhawks can not afford to have a soft start to their 2019-20 season.

  3. With all the signing/trading so far, I definitely think Canucks is a playoff team.

    Adding two top 6 bruising wingers, two defencemen, will bring us 50+ goals and 70+ assists minimal.

    looking forward 100+ points in 82 games!

     

    Really excited!

  4. The short answer is 50/50

    next year teams likely make playoff in West:

     

    St. Louis Blues

     Winnipeg

    Nashville

    Colorado

    Calgary

    San Jose Sharks

    Vegas Golden Knights

    No 8 spot: Canucks?

    Minnesota Dallas Oilers are also eyeing this last playoff spot…

     

    I mean Benning has to add more pieces this summer to compete this playoff spot.

     

    We need sign another top 6 forward and a top 4 defenseman.

     

    Panaran/Lee EP Boeser

    Pearson Bo Miller

    Leivo Gaudette Virtanen

    Plugs….

     

    Edler Gardiner

    Tanev Hughes

    Stecher Hutton

    Plugs…

    burrows is the hardest working player on this team. he's great on the pk and on the forecheck, and when he gets the opportunity, he puts away some of the prettiest goals ever seen. he does a lot more for the canucks than you think.

    actually, this year, Hansen is the hardest working player...
