  1. Also if Pettersson played with the best player in the game I’m sure his points would be well over a hundred in his prime too.
  2. Some fans impatience and desire for a cup blinds them to how good we have it. They want a winner now but at the same time are equally willing to blow it all up. It’s a very bizarre dichotomy in this market.
  3. Eric Staal on a PTO would make sense. The other player the Canucks were linked to was Brandon Pirri though.
  4. My worry is that Quinn is holding out for a ridiculous amount and that’s what’s holding things up. Kind of odd that Pettersson came to town only to leave and go train with Hughes. Maybe he’s going down their to talk him into signing? Obviously Petey can’t get his deal done till Hughes does.
  5. They should switch agents. Clearly they can’t get a deal done.
  6. I mean even if you think Kaprizov is worth 9 million I don’t see how this changes Peteys numbers. Kaprizov is not a comparable. He had leverage to leave to the KHL. He is also 2 years older and signing for more UFA years. If this is used as a comparable it should be for a 7 or 8 year term IMO.
  7. Didn’t they protect Archibald instead of Larsson too? That sucks for them.
  8. Thanks. Hopefully everything is okay. Luckily we have better depth now with Dickinson, we can afford to have him out for a bit.
  9. There are protocols in place to keep players safe (vaccinated and unvaccinated). If he doesn’t follow those protocols then I would say he’s willing endangering his teammates.
  10. Won’t he be suspended if he’s not vaccinated? Or did I miss something?
  11. Any word of why he’s not there?
  12. Big guy that can pop at least 10 goals a season. Id be good with that signing if guys like Gadjovich and Lockwood aren’t ready.
  13. I mean calling him an idiot is a little harsh. Everyone has their reasons for not getting the vaccine. Not all of them are conspiracy nuts or anti vaxxers. The fact that he’s willing to give up 5+ million for his convictions has to be respected. That’s putting your money where your mouth is. Its the people that think they shouldn’t have to sacrifice anything for their choice is who I have a problem with.
  14. Legendary broadcaster. Unfortunate that they forced the Leafs Koolaid down his throat. Kinda ruined his calls for me. We’ll always have “Great Save Luongo!!” though. Happy retirement!
  15. I haven’t seen money thrown away like this since the Loui Erikssson contract…
  16. That’s what CDC is famous for! People either weren’t fans or have very short memories here. The same belly aching was done with Brock and Bo too. Some fans are so quick to turn on players. Makes you wonder if they’re even fans.
  17. This is classic Barry. He’ll hold out till the last moment even at the cost of the team. Maybe he was hoping for an offer sheet? I would guess they’re waiting for Kaprizov and Dahlin to sign for more comparables.
  18. Just means a deal isn’t close. We kind of already knew that. This is more telling to me that they know that they’ll both be signing deals at the same time. Might as well share a flight back to Vancouver.
  19. On a side note sounds like Benning will bring in at least one player on a PTO. Says they have a real shot to make the team. Demers? Vatanen? Staal? Galchenyuk?
  20. My problem with them holding out is them missing preseason. Those games are the best time for Green to experiment with lines and pairings. This season more than ever we need to make sure we have options there. Like can Podkolzin play with Petey? Can Miller center a line? Who does Garland have the best chemistry with? Is Hughes best partner Hamonic/Poolman/Schenn? Is OEL and Myers a good duo? Those questions are hard to answer when two of your most important players are missing.
  21. On the same hand isn’t he kind of defending his own play? I mean he played for an even worse team and his two way play was also suspect.
  22. Well Jack is an RFA next offseason. The media better ask Quinn about his brothers negotiation after the Devils finish bottom 5 yet again.
