  1. I'm happy his jersey is being retired in Florida, hope that means it won't happen here too!! He was mostly great for us, but not here for long enough and didn't do enough to be in the rafters for us. Let's save that place for the first goalie who wins us a cup...
  2. Nah, let's blow it all up... 90+
  3. I've noticed the same thing in quite a few comments, even seen a lot of people wanting to trade Boeser off. While he hasn't been nearly as flashy as some people want out of a first line winger, he is doing everything else. His defensive game isn't great, but that's not why he is here. He scores, back checks fine, and can pass well above average for a sniper. Boeser is just going to get better, and should be a constant 80+ point player. Those don't grow on trees...
  4. I can think of negative things about his playing days, he was a whinny person who was ego centric, and never made his linemates better... He had a couple of good seasons, one good playoff series, and then left like a little spoiled brat, handcuffing us on his way out. We have way to many meh players in the rafters and on the ring of honour already, so let's not honour people who weren't honourable... And a good heart? Did you ever meet the guy? He was a grade A penis head
  5. That's fair Enough, but that's not completely what you've been saying.. you're saying every prospect is worth the exact same untill they play in the NHL, which is false. Lind was a high second round draft pick which has done nothing to diminish that fact, and a lot to improve on it... Lind is a high second round pick who is still young and showing promise, to say he is worth a bottome six mediocre Defenseman on a expiring contract is beyond wrong...
  6. Wow, you nailed it, Lind is a clone of fox...I'm not over valuating, you're bottom lining everyone to the same nomination... And having four potential wingers for the future isn't really depth.... it's nice, but not depth
  7. You're nuts!! You think all prospects are worth the same since the haven't played in the NHL yet? So Lind, Podkolzin, and Palmu all have the same worth in your eyes, all worth a 4th because they haven't played in the NHL yet.. do you know the difference in value between a first, fourth, and seventh round pick? And you also don't trade just because we have a little depth somewhere, our prospect pool is good but not exactly deep..
  8. Lind is a reasonable call up option now, and will be pushing for a spot by next season possibly. In five years Lind may be a staple to our middle six, and probable for the top nine at least.. Barrie is a bottom six, expiring contract, smaller Defenseman. I'm not seeing what you're seeing value wise
  9. Hell no to Lind, he is one of our best prospects and could fetch more then Barrie on his own... And that's right, lievo has been good for us too
  10. Dubas is a dope... When was the last time there was a Canucks and Toronto trade? I don't know, edler doesn't have the best history as a solid defensive defenseman... He is having a good year, but I wouldn't want to be relying on him to cover up for his partners mistakes.. him and Myers seem to be playing well of each other and would like to keep it that way I hear ya on neither of joulevi or Rafferty being quite ready, but I think they're both really close. Joulevis game will transfer over nicely to the NHL, I see him as a upgraded Tanev.. well I am wishing he is a upgraded Tanev hahahah
  11. So what do you think it would cost to get him? And would it be worth the price if we aren't going to be able to resign him? Could Rafferty, or joulevi maybe have the same impact as Barrie?
  12. Fair enough, but still, keeping the puck out of the net is a big problem that barrie will make worst, won't he?
  13. Really, crazy! we must be dropping pretty quick as I know we where among tops not too long ago....
  14. I don't think our problem this year is putting the puck in the net, we are one of the top scoring teams at even strength and on the PP. Our problem is keeping the puck out of our net which I don't think Barrie will really help...
  15. I know our PP doesn't look that good while watching, but we still sit top five in the league I'm pretty sure..
  16. Think that's low, stecher is now a proven bottom six Defenseman which should be getting us a solid third. If he wasn't his size, he would be worth a second+, or we would be keeping him
  17. I'm not saying he doesn't play with heart, it's just not enough to resign him on alone...
  18. Because we are low on picks this year, and while having a decent talent pool, it's not bottomless. What we do have is a good number of prospects ready to push for spots on both D and Offense
  19. Exactly, which is why his heart and his skill, while being quite good, doesn't outmatch his lack in stature and overall potential. Which is why we will be moving on You're saying what I'm saying, I was just to lazy to add all those words as people have been a bit testy lately so I kept it simple
  20. Unfortunately for stecher, the writing has been on the wall for a while. His heart and skill just isn't enough to stay invested in him, expecting a third, maybe second if something is added from our end
  21. Ok, so maybe I'm hoping Myers is taken in the draft.. he is a big, good defensive player which may have some eye candy attached to him. I do agree he isn't worth his contract at all though, and it isn't going to be getting much better going forward. Let's go Seattle draft!
  22. I agree, it would suck watching stetcher leave the team. He has been one of the hardest working players we have this year, and has been playing well to boot. And his value probably isn't what it should be either. I think we do need to make some room on the back end though, let future college free agents, and players know that you won't be stuck in the minors. Who do we part with at that point? Myers just signed a big contract, Hughes is Hughes... Tanev I would like to see delt, though it would throw out a lot of chemistry with Hughes. Benn and fantenberg are both solid big defensive bodies for the 6/7 spot. Stetcher might be the odd man out
  23. I'm ok with 6x5, it's taken marky a bit to get to this point, but he is looking solid in the net. Today's goalie market is scary as can be though with even some of the best names dropping off a cliff. I think Myers might end up being exposed and lost in the expansion draft...
