Canucks Second-Line

Canucks Second-Line (11/16)



  1. The worst part is he might have to fire Green a month into the season and then pay for 2 coaches for another 2 years. If he didn't see this coming I don't know how he made all those millions as a businessman in the first place smh.
  2. Poor Quebec, they will lose every little bit of hope they have left if that happens.
  3. Not sure if it's because I've seen this play so many time without too much punishment (*cough* Raymond-Boychuk), but I honestly think that was a harsh suspension, based on past decisions. Like I said with the McIllrath hit, I hope the NHL is consistent and continue to hand down these kind of suspension going forward, but on the other hand, this is the start of the season and the tough line usually soften as the season goes on. 2 games in October aren't has precious as 2 games in March/April or playoff time, where these plays usually labelled as "playoff hockey". I'm all for harsher suspension, but it's just a matter of time until a savage cross-check to the face only gets a fine. Which IMO is probably one of the worst, premediated, non-hockey assault there is and yet is often overlooked
  4. Not sure, but if Arizona wins before any other Canadian teams, that'll be the day I stop watching hockey.
  5. Can someone explain it to me? His contract is on LTIR, so what would be the cap benefit for the Hawks in doing this? Isn't exempt from cap calculation already?
  6. That's exactly what I thought, similar offense but not close as far as being two-way player.
  7. Nice deal for both side I think. I like Suzuki but personally, dont really see him as a true 1C with perenial PPG potential. IMO he would be a premium 2C.
  8. So Ottawa trades the best player and get the worst return of all 3 teams. Makes sense. Johansen is as untradeable as Erikson if not worst.
  9. Per TSN Puzzling development. Been a weird off-season. First we learned he wasn't going to be protected. Then suddenly had a knee injury that might make him miss a part of the season. Afterward was going to be ready to the start, until training camp when they said he would most likely not be ready. And now this.
  10. Said yes, but also has to be careful. I'm sure 5-6 years ago, everyone would have given up the 1st to acquire Madison Bowey, who apparently was an up and coming RHD. Look how that turned out. At the same time, no team is going to give a good young RHD for a possible middle of the pack 1st, unless it's a team unloading like the Coyotes, but that trade would happens before the next draft, not during the season.
  11. Then I don't think they were trying to hide him. They simply realized early he wasn't going to make the team and honestly couldn't care less if they lose him. That's twice they've exposed him, to Seattle and now through waivers. They must not have much plan for him. A real way to try and sneak him through waivers would have been the day right before the regular season starts. That way most teams already have their roster set and won't be able to "try" him out, they want him they have to put in on the roster after everyone else battle it out throughout the camp (can't be a popular move when a team does that). Now a team that wants to give him a shot can actually work him out a few days and maybe sneak in one more pre-season game before deciding if they want to keep him up or put him on waivers again.
  12. Of the two interpretation, the first one makes more sense to me. If the guy is good enough and we are worried of losing him, why "try" to sneak him on waivers. Let's just make a spot for him. Highly doubt that was the reasoning for Markstrom as well. Not a lot of teams will go with an unproven backup in their line-up. Every team has their duo setup ahead of camp and almost every team has a young guys who needs mileage in the AHL. Therefore, I don't think there was a real worry that Markstrom would have been snatched to play limited minutes in the NHL. IMO that's reading into it way too much.
  13. Wait a minute... Where is the EP and QH blockbuster proposal?
  14. Forgot about them. But it's Arizona, I'm sure they are going to find a way to mess up their tank mode.
