    Habs suck! (just saying)

  2. How about Nathan McKinnon about to re-up on his contract and again willing to take less specifically to help the team sign others to make them better, regrets a bit he didn't take a bridge deal but might go with that this time, we can only hope Petey and Hughes can at least do a bridge, can't really see them taking less maybe but it sure would help our situation if it started to be loaded for both starting the season after next and we'll be fine and I think that is exactly what is going to happen after JB started in on that with JV...

    Hope that continues!

    The only good thing the Leafs have managed in my lifetime at least, was a 7 game eventual WG thrashing in 93.     

    Darryl Sittler vs Guy Lafleur was epic to watch... talk about back and fourth hockey full out, it was sooooo much fun to watch.. Dave Hodge I think announced it if I remember correctly, been quite awhile..  (side note) sometimes they even had light fog on the ice during a game and then they'd set up fans (excuse the pun) and it would finally dissipate then game on...

    Maybe there is a Svechnikov for Virtanen trade there somewhere

    Jake earned himself a ticket to being unprotected at the draft or they let him go completely if he breached contract if found guilty of sexual misconduct but he will be gone soon, unless he completely changes then he's pretty much gone...

    Hey y'all. Long time caller, first time listener...

     

    Here we are in the "create Canucks things to chat about" time of year. I don't want to talk about last season because, well, you know. It was almost physically painful. Lol. So cheers- To the future. 

     

    I wonder if the Canucks will look to have a veteran Russian presence on the team next year. I'm sure it has crossed their minds. Tryamkin was of course going to be the easiest solution. Looking back, maybe the big fella didn't have the greatest attitude, and might not have been the best role model for the next young star. Doesn't matter now. 

     

    So...

     

    With Podz joining the team, who might be the seasoned Russian the Canucks look to keep near the kid. It

    Bure comes out of retirement?

    I think we should go BPA.

     

    That player that we pick isn't going to be on the team until 2-3 years later. By then, our needs may have changed.

     

    I sort of agree, I think the bpa on D though, our core is set, we need to develop from here on in to our weakness and that's D and we can pick up a good consistent stand in until he develops...  but we can never have enough depth or developing depth, we always get creamed with injuries so nothing wrong with stacking up unless a player gets passed to us which has been known to happen, otherwise staying the course and actually building for a change is amazing to see in the first place, usually we just dump our picks away in trades... that hasn't worked in 40 years and it's not going to anytime soon either. I can deal with the 10 year complaint on JB because I hardly want to see another one trick pony from selling everything off..  that was pathetic but everyone seemed to be ok with it, yeah NO thanks...

    I do see some similar things as the team we had in the early 90's as far as young talent goes (McLean, Nedved, Bure, Linden, Ronning - Demko, QHs, EP, BB, Horvat plus Podz maybe too) and also get the when Luongo first came the team had the feel they were going to do something great too...

     

    But don't quite think it's so simple.   Immediately is pretty hard to do considering last season - snap judgements aren't going to happen thankfully, but will agree that next season will become an important one on gauging the core and the future of the club.   Team has holes that won't get solved over night or this off season - but they will like Luongo's 2nd/3rd year with us, and like before Quin traded for Ronning and Courtnall etc - be able to what should be done next.   One year.  

    In other news, JB hires Pavel Bure for a training period with Podz, steps in and makes a huge impact (no not like Pavel himself) but one can wish right? on both counts... praying he's training his a** off all offseason long... definately has the will to do it.. 

    Make no mistake, we will actually gain a bit in cap space to Seattle as well then the ELC of Podz as well.. and see JB doing bridge deals to Hughes and Petey with a light first 2 years and then back loaded the last 3, and then to re-up Bo and then Brock but after that we will have money and maybe, just maybe be able to snag a top pairing consistent D or even 2..  normally we don't have a problem scoring BUT our D gets scored on way too much and team D needs work as well, it'll come though...

    EP, Hughes, Podzkolzin...they've done a pretty good job with their recent high first round picks.  I'm intrigued as hell who they'll end up picking.

     

    I wonder if they try trading Lind or Gadjovich for an extra draft pick at the draft.

    not so sure that's a good idea, both have gotten further around the curve and we all know how bad we seem to get banged up, and a horrific schedule.. I think anyone we get from 1-9 will help a lot, and if it's not a NHL ready player, we still have a year to see how he does in (almost said Utica) lol  but who knows, if JB can pull off something, he will... and if we just pick 9th we might get someone fairly good.. as long as he has size speed and skill, I'm happy but HAS to have size, us getting pushed around in the playoffs WILL happen if we don't draft to that, we've all seen the same ole'

    We have a first line everything, except RHD, which after center is the hardest to get. 

     

    We should go after Clarke...he will not be there at #9 and we will not be in position for a long time (hopefully) to draft one again.

     

    I think you have to think where will we be in 3, 4 or 5 years from now?

     

    I would pay a kings ransom for him.

     

    #9, Schmidt, Lind and a 2022 2nd to move up to 2?.................why, because none will have the impact on our team, like a true #1 RHD

     

    #9 + 2023 1st (unprotected)

     

    Again, we will not be in position for a long time (hopefully) to draft one again.

     

     

    Well we're projected 9 as it stands but we might move up.. 

  12. Hi, so your JB, and facing the draft knowing your needing a high-end defenseman and a 3rd line center.

    So now what, 4-5 Dmen are in the top 10 who fit that from Owen Power on down, or do you scan for a center prospect for need rather than best pick available?

    The Oilers attempts to surround their young top 6 guys with veteran leadership that wasnt overly effective on the ice was more similar to Bennings strategy than people care to remember.

     

    The 2014-15 Oilers with their young players prior to McDavid:

     

    Young F - Yakupov, Draisaitl, Hall, Nugent Hopkins, Eberle

     

    Young D - Nurse, Klefbom, Schultz

     

    Veterans on the Roster - 

    C - Boyd Gordon, Derek Roy, Rob Klinkhammer

    LW - Matt Hendricks, Benoit Pouliot, David Perron (age 26)

    RW - Steve Pinizotto, Teddy Purcell

    D - Mark Fayne, Jeff Petry, Andrew Ference

    At least JB's supporting cast was miles better than that...  but if I'm tracking with you, you want the old soft team back? Yes it was fun to watch all season but then turfed out early in the post season, we can do that but there will never be a Stanley here, ever... we tried that route and failed horribly but media and fans who follow them want it back, sadly that never worked and won't anytime soon...

    The Oilers actually brought in a lot of veteran leadership in their bottom 6 and on D. They just werent very good players that couldnt help the team all that much.

     

    It doesnt sound like Benning is going to fill holes with young players. He talked about being aggressive with trades and ufa signings. So really it sounds like his approach is going to be more "go for it" than "patience with young players". I do hope that doesnt mean we see mid term contracts for bottom 6 guys like 2018.

     

     

     Uh not really on the Oilers, the next older players were early 20's and your right, not very good, so had they quality players to assist them in mentorship, they would have been a different team today.

     If the right deal comes along he will go for it but the days of 4 year contracts to anyone except our core isn't going to happen.. just the way it is, the media just made so much of it like it was going to continue but it simply doesn't need to happen unless he does something on D where it's worth it, our top 6 is good, bottom 6 is the easier part, especially when after next season people are in the building again and the cap goes up which is going to help in more ways than one, but point is, we have the skill to score BUT playing team defense needs to be a lot better and not just at D but everyone, consistently, people tend to forget that with so many contracts coming off and players coming in its hard to compete with experienced teams with set lines who have played together for awhile, again, people have/are expecting too much, however we're not far off.. people need to see that too..
