  1. So by your logic there are 31 crap teams that nobody wants to sign with since he didn’t wait to hear what any of them had to say. That makes no sense.
  2. Agreed but let’s face it, without threads like this to pile on with one liners and face palm memes, most people wouldn’t be able to rack up large post counts….
  3. Agreed. Everyone proposing to trade Hughes should google Cam Neely trade. In fact just read this article (it also has quotes from Benning that explain his thoughts on JV): https://www.google.ca/amp/s/theprovince.com/sports/hockey/nhl/vancouver-canucks/canucks-at-50-cam-neely-trade-proved-to-be-gms-worst-nightmare/wcm/505dc7bb-0699-4879-853b-30a22039eaa6/amp/
  4. Exactly my point. For years it’s been 1 or 2 great prospects coupled with some good players that excited us about the future but now it’s a full core. Don’t get me wrong, there’s been a pile of good times with great players to cheer for. Smyl, Snepsts, Brodeur, Linden, Bure, the WCE, the Sedins, ‘82 ‘94 ‘11. We’ve enjoyed and endured a lot. But never all the pieces at the same stage of their careers. Now we have elite talents all coming at the same time. A goalie in Demko; defense Hughes and Juolevi; centers Horvat and Pettersson; wingers Boeser, Hoglander, etc.
  5. Finally a decent conversation worth commenting on. I’ve been cheering for this team since I was a kid in the 70’s; lots of trials and frustrations mixed with the occasional great run but I continue to support them because it’s my team. I watch every game I can, no matter how frustrating it can be, even with heightened expectations such as we have after last years run. Which to some degree also set us up for the disappointment of this year. But I’d rather have missed expectations then no expectations at all, which is what many years have brought. My point is, in all my yea
  6. There’s not much that will get me to post on the CDC boards but my hatred of Mark Messier is one of them. I loathe Mark Messier.
