  5. It all starts with stopping ridiculous trade proposals getting rid of the Canucks' best young players!
  6. https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/former-canucks-jake-virtanen-contract-khl-russia Sport24 is reporting that the former Vancouver Canucks winger has been offered a contract with SKA St. Petersburg — Vasily Podkolzin’s former team in the KHL. The deal offered is reportedly worth 60 million rubles, which translates to about $816,000 USD. The KHL regular season schedule begins much earlier than the NHL, with SKA’s first game set for Thursday. Virtanen was due to make $3.4 million USD next season, but was bought out by the Canucks in late July at one-third of his $3 million base salary. He’ll receive $500,000 from the Canucks in each of the next two seasons. The 25-year-old from Abbotsford never played another game for the Canucks after he was placed on leave on May 1, when sexual misconduct allegations about him became public. “Our organization does not accept sexual misconduct of any kind, and the claims as reported are being treated very seriously by us,” the Canucks said in a media release at the time. An investigation by the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) has been launched, and a lawsuit was filed against Virtanen by a woman in civil court. Virtanen denies the allegations against him.
  7. It's supposed to be a gif that sticks out its pierced tongue, but doesn't work here for some reason that I didn't bother to look into. I do appreciate the compliment, in any case.
  8. Faaaaaaaak, another... seriously, we are running out of places to go.

      That picture is terrifying.  Along with the people who lose their homes/everything, my heart is broken for all the wildlife out there, trapped in this.  That just sticks with me in such an overwhelming way.  Awful.

      @-DLC- I know! There were animal rescues being evacuated last night asking for help with transport, which was/is making me feel sick. Sadly, I don't have access to any vehicle to help. :(

  10. Defenseman Brendan Smith, 32, left the New York Rangers over the offseason and signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Hurricanes. On Friday, Smith was a guest on SiriusXM NHL Network Radio’s Hockey Today and was asked about the Tom Wilson incident from last May. Wilson’s antics led to a line brawl between the two teams which saw the Capitals enforcer punch Pavel Buchnevich from behind and ragdoll superstar Artemi Panarin to the ice after the All-Star jumped in to defend his teammate. The fireworks led to a bizarre, overly aggressive press release from the Rangers, which saw the team call Wilson’s actions a “horrifying act of violence.” A second line-brawl occurred during the teams’ rematch two nights later where Smith eventually fought Wilson. Weeks later, the Rangers cleaned house, firing virtually everyone in the front office and its coaching staff. New Rangers GM Chris Drury then signed three enforcers over the offseason, including Ryan Reaves. Barclay Goodrow predicted the two teams’ Opening Night game should be “interesting.” What seems like a vast overreaction is not according to Smith, who explained there are things yet to be revealed that will make the Rangers the protagonists in this story. “It was quite an interesting 48 hours or whatever it was,” Smith said. “I was definitely a little nervous. Tom’s one of the toughest guys in the league. He’s a heavyweight so that’s an interesting task for myself as I wouldn’t consider myself a heavyweight by any means. You just have to answer the bell. “To be honest, once my career is over, there’ll be more info that will come to fruition about the whole incident,” Smith added. “All I can say at the moment is that I personally wish the league handled it a little bit differently. I think that we had to take care of our superstars 100 percent and then it wouldn’t have hit the fan like it did.” While the two teams’ violence might seem ridiculous to some, Smith said that the heart shown in all the fights is what he cherishes most about the sport. “The one thing that I love about hockey is that guys stand up for each other,” Smith said. “I was so impressed and it gave me chills to see what the players on the Rangers did. It speak volumes, not just for the New York Rangers, but the league itself. I also have to attest for a lot of the Washington players. It should not have been their fight or their battle, but that’s why I love the game so much.” But those additional details about Wilson and the fight. Smith was not spilling. “Like I said, in 15 years when my career is over, there will be more things that will come up,” Smith said. “As of right now, we try to keep it a little bit closer to home and I’ll say how impressed I was about how everything was handled.” https://russianmachineneverbreaks.com/2021/08/13/former-rangers-defenseman-brendan-smith-says-theres-a-lot-more-info-that-will-come-out-someday-regarding-the-tom-wilson-incident/
  11. He said in a recent interview that Kindergarten Cop was his favourite movie. =)
  12. Anyone want to first compile a list of teams that have both $11M of available cap space, with the ability left to fill out a full roster, and their own 4 1st round picks?
  13. Likely LTIR for the remainder of his contract.

    Bear in mind that the names on this list have not been officially announced by the Kraken or the NHL. Those will be made at tonight’s expansion draft. Any trades made by the Kraken will also be announced tonight."

  17. I wonder where Brendan Bachelor got his face off numbers?
  18. Parise and Suter to be bought out?!? Wow...that's some huge dead cap space. And, makes Holland look even worse for the Keith deal.

    This Season’s Buyout Predictions

     

    Some GMs have openly said they would consider buyouts or are expected to. The Oilers, the Flames and the Canucks are the obvious three teams that have albatross contracts they need off their teams.

     

    As shown by last year’s list of bought out players, it’s often the last step before effective retirement for a player, but not every bought out player is at the end of their career.

     

    Vancouver could clear a bit of space by buying out the last year of Loui Eriksson’s deal — he played seven games last year — but by burying him in the minors, he costs them $4.875 million, and a buyout of his remaining season costs $4 million this coming year and $1 million next season. The cash savings are only $1 million.

     

    Meanwhile if they choose to remove the final year of Brock Boeser’s deal, they accomplish more. Boeser, at $5.875 AAV, has a salary this coming season of $7.5 million. His contract expires as an RFA with arbitration rights, guaranteeing him that inflated amount unless the Canucks simply refuse to issue a Qualifying Offer next offseason. They either need to find a trade partner who wants him, hope Seattle takes him, or they just have to let him play out the deal, knowing he’d need to agree to a lower salary to be a player they could keep.

     

    A buyout saves them more than his full cap hit this season, in fact, due to the salary and AAV discrepancy, he has a negative cap hit (or a cap credit) of -$375,000 this coming season and only $1.25 million next year.

     

    Choosing to just live with Eriksson’s cap hit, and buying out Boeser is a much better idea for the Canucks in terms of freeing up cap space, but it does lose them a useful position player. If the Canucks go that route, Boeser could rival Wennberg for the best UFA option to sign off a buyout.

      Why would the Canucks buyout our leading scorer from last year?

  20. The onus should be on the players to not inflict unnecessary injuries. Players don't have to destroy others in the corners to enable more offence. And were the goaltenders allowed to play the puck in those zones, more would practice it and improve...not just some "retired" goaltenders. If you want to take out injuries by reducing the plays that skaters can make, might as well not let them carry the puck behind the net...or up through the neutral zone and access the offensive blue line, where the bone crushing open ice hits occur. #NoHittingLeague
