      6Y x 1M for Player Name

      LOL... I guess we can't say that name here anymore

      It seems unlikely though since the players owe a ton in escrow money. Would be nice though extra 1m will help getting Brock signed.

  2. Canadian Paralympic Committee releases 3D Printing files for 20 custom pieces to customize existing Lego figures to better represent individuals with disabilities and certain Paralympic sports

      neat, thats great. 

       

      Do you have a 3d printer?

      I don't. I wish Lego would get on board and just sell these (with partial (or all) proceeds going towards the Canadian Paralympic program).

       

      That paralympic website was careful to never use the word Lego 

       

  3. JFresh (a hockey analytics guy on twitter) is dead to me if he's so blinded by the numbers, he can't see that losing Rome hurt the Canucks in 2011

      Rome hit was a momentum shift , losing him hurt because we were so depleted . But the real injuries that cost us were hammer, kesler. Both integral pieces .

      @Silky mitts To this day I still argue Samuelsson was the biggest loss due to

      his experience in cup finals and winning one.

      @Pears definitely sucked, we lost him so early too

  6. &^@# these refs, man. Totally in Vegas' pockets

    1. Brad Marchand

      And yet they still couldn't beat a team that took fewer than 25 regulation shots.

    2. Dazzle

      Dazzle

      The non-call on the trip was fine, upon closer review. But that crosscheck in the numbers on the board. That should've been called. 100 percent. EASY &^@#ING call. The hook afterward was also a penalty. So if you're gonna call legit penalties like the hook, then CALL THE CROSSCHECK. Right in the &^@#ing numbers.

  7. I just got blocked on Twitter by a Leafs fan who was arguing that Hughson and Simpson were giant Canucks homers. I hadn't even replied directly to him. I replied to another guy who had agreed with him. I pointed out several Leafs favourable things Simpson had said.

      They know how it was like having to listen to Bob Cole for us Canuckfans.

       

      Make no mistake, in his prime, Cole was indeed legit legendary (fantastic voice).  But stayed way too long.

  8. Toffoli gets zero points against Ottawa.

     

     

    1. NewbieCanuckFan

      That's because he gets all his points against us.

      Good problem to have.

      If it happens that's fantastic. I don't want any more pressure on him that he needs. I'm just loving the level of play, and even some physicality. He's rounding into the forward we were hoping for. 

    4. J-Dizzle

      J-Dizzle

      He's definitely elevated his game to another level. You could see it coming in the playoffs last year but it didn't quite click.... it's clicking now. Rocket Richard.... who knows. 

  10. As long as Demko shows progression this year, I'll be happy. We can't expect Vegas level goaltending every game. Especially with the Defence he has in front of him this year 

    1. NewbieCanuckFan

      NewbieCanuckFan

      Goaltending is WAY down the list of problems that need to be fixed.

  11. So Kaprisov looks like he's going to be a Calder threat. Romanov in Montreal too

    1. -AJ-

      -AJ-

      Perhaps a bit like 2005-06 with rookies getting an extra half year of development before all coming into the NHL at once.

  12. TIL: This is still MacEwen's rookie season. It feels like we've had him for a while but by the NHL's rules, he's still a rookie

  13. With the shortened season, has the number of games played required to be considered a player's rookie season changed?

    1. ImConfused

      ImConfused

      I think I remember seeing that it has changed but to what I don't know and no I don't have a source unfortunately

    2. Chronic.Canucks.Fan

      Chronic.Canucks.Fan

      I don't think Calder eligibility would be affected as that is based on what has already happened ie games already played.

       

      I could see this season being prorated to adjust to compensate for the number of games going forward but I also don't feel the 26 game difference merits it.

  14. If the 2020-2021 season runs long because the league tries to fit 82 games in beginning in January, could the expansion draft be delayed?

    It needs to happen after the season has ended.

      -AJ-

      It probably would be, but I'm betting we're getting a shortened season. I'm hoping for like 60 games, but my gut is feeling a 48-game season.

    3. Pears

      I still think a half season against western teams like the 2013 season  is the likely scenario. 

    4. goalie13

      goalie13

      @Pears I don't see the western teams concept working this time as it means lots of crossing the border.  The Jays plan to play in Toronto with American teams coming and going was shot down by the Feds.

  15. Reaves laughing with the refs kinda makes my blood boil. He's had late hits that could have been called for charging. especially early on when it was still 0-0

    I found one from December while I was cleaning up. Almost 8 months old now.

      @lmm Business is definitely still up and running. I'm still employed by them. The worry is the company's bank not paying out an old check, isn't it? Does using a machine avoid that?

       

    3. lmm

      lmm

      if you are still employed, you could just ask for a re-issue. but yes, the machine avoids the hassle that the teller at your bank will give you for a stale cheque.

    4. NewbieCanuckFan

      NewbieCanuckFan

      I think it’s a YMMV situation.  OT.....even if you put a stop payment on a cheque, there’s a chance (however small) that it’ll clear.  At least I think so in this province.  

  19. Sekeres is a douche.

      The BS Boeser rumour he pulled out of his ass

    3. Squamfan

      Squamfan

      its not bs, do you really believe Benning. Remember Kesler: I have not requested a trade, Linden: I am not becoming the President of the Canucks, Bergevin: I am not trading PK Subban.  Travers: I love Long island and want to stay here. Benning statement was all PR today. He is not going to the media and telling he is shopping Boeser. Remember last year everybody bashed Sekeres when he tweet Canucks are looking to trade Dahlen, and everybody bashed him saying its false and then a couple days later he was traded.

  21. Anyone remember a Nucks goal where they take consecutive slapshots from the point and on the 3rd attempt it goes in? Each missed shot found its way back to the point almost immediately. I can't find it anymore.

      “I called (Hurricanes GM) Don Waddell in the second intermission and said, ‘can’t one of those two guys please come back?’” said NHL vice-president Colin Campbell with a laugh.

      He said it light heartedly, but I think what it reveals about his underlying priorities is just awful. 

    4. King Heffy

      King Heffy

      The NHL should be ashamed of themselves for continuing to employ this corrupt waste of oxygen.  He should be facing criminal charges for gross negligence.

  23. Could it be that Benning thinks the 2021 draft is really good? So he's pushing for the playoffs this year so that we keep our 2021 first. Even the conditional pick in the Toffoli trade is a 2022 4th

    1. Tystick

      Tystick

      I think your right, it's a weak draft this year.

      I think Benning will still acquire draft picks but probably 2nd to mid-round.

    2. Where's Wellwood

      Where's Wellwood

      @Tystick Funny you say that because I've heard that 2020 is a strong draft on Reddit. Personally, I think that every draft is pretty much the same outside of the strength of the top 3-5 ranked players. Its only several years down the line that a draft should be called strong (like 2003 or maybe 2015). Calling a draft strong pre-draft is overhyping it. 

    3. Quantum

      Quantum

      It's funny, the last few drafts have all be touted as being "the strongest draft class of the year". I feel like 2012 had a lot of hype behind it and it turned out to be a pretty weak draft class. I gotta believe that Benning feels 2021 may be better than 2020. If there's one thing he and Brackett are great at, it's drafts and drafting. I still don't doubt the Canucks can find a gem in the late rounds like they've done in years past. Not gonna write this off yet. Madden was a 3rd rounder that just netted us Toffoli. And I remember guys like JD Burke ripping the Canucks for not picking Jake Wise who has been average at the NCAA level... gotta trust the process.

  24. Just a reminder that John Madden (Tyler's dad) took the Cup to Trump on his day with it after winning it with the Hawks. Always left a bad taste in my mouth, even since Tyler was drafted.

      you shouldn't be allowed to lift it unless you've won it or a family member of someone who has won it. That's my take on it anyway.. it means less if you see idiots like this goofball lifting it. Or Def Leppard, was it, sitting it upside down..
