  1. @Ghostsof1915 Found this on the interwebz. It's a collaboration between this group (Unchain) and Band Maid members Miku (song lyrics) and Saiki.(singing). On first listen, it's not really my cuppa' but it is interesting to see/hear group members pushing their limits. regards, G.
  2. Despite other fairly recent acquisitions by the Leafs, there is still a very strong belief in Toronto that d-men are just forwards who play on a line without a center. regards, G.
  3. Perhaps this has already been mentioned, but there has to be a Sami Salo reference in here somewhere. regards, G.
  4. The Apricots circa 2000. 2010.3.7 23:43 Kyushu Expressway-Chugoku Expressway : regards, G.
  5. Fast answers, on my out for lunch. Need fud. 1.) Perhaps I am overestimating, but I feel that being a bit "negative" (not my normal style) leads to happiness should things work out in the Canucks' favour. 2.) The incentive for a lot of the guys listed is that Benning overpaid them (ask around, it's a regular complaint ). In other cases, eg. Hamonic, he wanted someplace on the left side of Canada and that was not Calgary or (iirc) Edmonton. He was even prepared to take a pay cut in order to make things work. Will he be as willing to take a cheap deal for
  6. I was kind of neutral about Madden, but I always felt he really needed some extra weight/body mass to really be successful at the NHL level. regards, G.
  7. Unless Hammonic signs for a lesser amount than he is worth (again), I'm assuming that the team will need at least two new RD for next season. UFA targets: While the team might be able to get them for less than what the Canucks are paying Myers, paying for even one of these guys will amount to a savings of maybe $1 million (+/- but probably -), nothing to sniff at, but not anything huge. What is their incentive to sign "here" when they would likely be closer to being on a competitive team somewhere else? Term would (probably) be a problem in some of those cases (eg. Savard at 4 yrs?
  8. I can't say that for this last year and some I've been following the guys on the farm. I'd have assumed that Rathbone would still be in the AHL next season, for further seasoning. Will Rathbone be ready to play an entire NHL season (of however many games)? Assuming he was kept up with the big team for next season, this would leave the Canucks with a starting left side of Hughes, Juolevi and Rathbone (with Schmidt, ? and ? on the RD side). Seems rather inexperienced, some might say vulnerable. If the Canucks signed on a free agent LD (for example Edler, at a lesser than current deal
  9. Assuming Seattle did take Myers, what asset(s) would you be willing to use as trade bait for a replacement? Motte? Lind? A high pick? RD aren't inexpensive in trade, nad usually seem to be more so if the other GM recognizes your team's need. And signing free agent RD (probably) won't be inexpensive, however, the Canucks can probably get someone who is of average ability. Any thoughts on who the team should target? regards, G.
