  1. For next season is it not possible next seson all the Canadian NHL teams operate an AHL team in Canada and both leagues play only within a Canadian division?
  2. I'm in the why not give him a shot camp. At one mil for one year it would be a reasonable risk.
  3. Unfortunately I think you may be right. Jake just doesn't seem to have what it takes to play at an elite level. He can be useful to the team, the question is, in a limited role or in a trade.
  4. I can remember fans commented when the Knights acquired Schmidt for their first season. All I recall was that he was considered under rated and a very good skater.
  5. I can imagine Tanev returning to the Canucks after he retires to work in management.
  6. Great team guy, right attitude, good character and nice person, what more could we have asked for. He has developed into an elite goaltender in front of our eyes. We should be grateful for his contribution to the success the Canucks have enjoyed during his tenure. He is a winner wherever he plays. Thank you.
  7. Wasn't Harry Snepst selected in the third round?
  8. I have one basic rule, never trade for a player the Oilers got rid of.
  9. No thanks very much. Maroon has past his best before date and each season is a little slower.
  10. You know I have come to the conclusion investing in veteran players who were considered very good but are past-their-prime is just not a sound startegy. I would invest more resources in scouting, drafting and developing players, then when the time is right provide them with an opportunity to learn the game on the ice within a proven system.
  11. I am inclined to agree with your proposal. Trading Demko after the playoffs would be difficult but as long as we don't retain any salary I would consider.
  12. Tempting, but for me this proposal would be a hard pass. Living in E-town I have watched the Oil enough have some sense of the value of Neal and Khaira. Even with the add-ons I don't like the idea of trading within our division. Cheers.
  13. It seems to me the success (or failure) of draft picks in the lower rounds can be the difference in the overall success of a team. Just like the difference in winning teams seem to be the performance of their third and fourth line players, later round picks can make a difference in the long term. Not saying one is necessarily related to the other, simply that the lower the picks, and the lines on which players toil, the greater difference they can make to a team.
