  1. Can someone send us an update from HF Canucks land.

     

    I'd love to know how their collective mental health is doing with all these amazingly low cost short term contracts from "Benning" as they call him.

      If the signings aren't superstars at league minimum with no trade protection, and the team somehow acquires picks in the process...haters gonna hate.

       

      ...probably still would find some misguided way to hate.

  2. Who are you guys going to follow for free agency… Sportsnet or TSN?

  3. Well well well look who’s being exposed in the entry draft…. Carey Price.

  5. 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.

      What's he gonna say? "I plan to be slow and play the minimum amount I have to"?

      I guess we'll see if Keith's cups and awards, 6 to 10 years ago, on a different team with a much more complete roster, is worth losing assets (Caleb Jones and 3rd) along with adding potentially several million towards their cap (relative to what Suter signs for elsewhere). I wouldn't think so. But I would've also pursued Leddy instead of either, at this point in their careers.

    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.

      I think someone just has a crush on Boeser and thinks he will magically end up in Toronto.

  10. Please take away Jims phone before he makes another mistake. This would be 10x worse that Loui contract

      Schmidt + Eriksson for Ekman Larsson with 50% retained by Arizona...then maybe.

       

      Has Kypreos ever broke the news on a rumour that actually happened?

      He might have broken something there.

      Google it. No guarantees, but it might be a relatively easy fix.

  12. Is there honestly much of a difference between your typical high school and Canucks twitter in terms of the amount nonstop childish drama, bickering, back and forth nonsense?

      Not much, if any.

  16. I have been reading a ton of trade proposals on here and have come to a conclusion. This proposal works best for our team moving forward Petey+Hughes+9OA for absolutely no one they are too valuable!

  19. Do you think Ballard would consider a comeback? I’m thinking of a trade involving our second round pick….

  20. Previous season ticket cost for Abbotsford heat was $425 behind the goalie to $1184 for the best center ice seats..... Do you think this will be the pricing when the season starts?

      Maybe we can get a CDC group together for a few games.

  22. What a game by Price and Helleybuck! Time to hype up the goalies in the playoffs so that hopefully 2 teams ahead of us in the draft will snap up the top 2 goalie prospects. 

  23. During the cap era, no team with a player whose cap hit is above $10 million has won a playoff round, up until Price did it last night. Quite eye-opening and something to note when looking at Hughes/Pettersson's contracts.

      @PunjabiCanucks Wow. Star player salaries escalated quickly from the mid-90s to the early 2000s. I guess that's one of the reasons the league wanted to implement the cap.
