  3. Haha that was me back in the day before relocating the team to Vancouver. The GM at the time was loading up for the playoffs and was willing to give up the future for that. I think in the year of the trade and the year after the trade I lost out on fantasy points. Buff and Couture are the big names but Martinez has always been a force in fantasy. Eaves was one year removed from a 30 goal season and Riley Nash was having the best season of his life with Boston. If I remember correctly, at the last hour I suggested to add James Neal on my end and Erik Karlsson on his end but he back
  4. Haha we were holding our breath till the end there if it makes you feel better, we don’t have the depth this year to do much in the playoffs
  5. Colorado Playoff Roster Here's our playoff roster assuming that we make it with Iafallo added to our roster for the remainder of the regular season. Definitely a weaker group than past years but we'll look to retool in the offseason and to put ourselves in a position to contend again. Jordan Greenway - Leon Draisaitl - David Pastrnak Artturi Lehkonen - Anthony Cirelli - Tyler Bozak Mitchell Stephens Josh Morrissey - Alex Pietrangelo Torey Krug - Jared Spurgeon Neal Pionk - Dante Fabbro Haydn Fleury @Nail
  6. Tough to make this trade but with the expansion draft coming up and several big contracts expiring this year, it seemed smart to get something back for our assets. The Demko demand was insanely high the last few months and adding a top young asset who is expansion exempt was key. Hughes doesn't need a new contract until next season and Klingberg would have either been lost in the expansion draft or a cap casualty. Koskinen is no number 1 in real life but he's a decent backup goalie who can put together a couple wins here and there. The draft picks aren't anything special but we've
  7. Vancouver puts Johann Larsson on waivers
  8. Happy to see Nathan MacKinnon front and centre on the new banner
  9. Thank you @Patnat96 for the negotiations. I’m sad to see Wennberg and Gregor go as I’ve had them both on the team for a long time. Wennberg was a guy I took in the inaugural CDCP draft in 2015 and I’ve had high hopes for him since his 59 point breakout season. The long-term deal I signed him to after that year was easily one of my worst mistakes as a GM and after 3 years of waiting for him to return to form, it’s time to move on. We think that our next crop of young forwards, will be able to replace Wennberg's production for a fraction of the price. Gregor was a draft p
  10. Willie actually turned down Pittsburgh back in 2014. He was their top candidate but he turned them down for the Canucks. The article was written on June 21st 2014 (Saturday) and the TSN reports of an offer being sent was the Thursday before that. https://www.nhl.com/news/penguins-top-choice-to-coach-out-of-mix-report/c-723193
  11. Some quotes from Gaudette in an article from today. Wouldn't worry too much about him not signing here. Full link to the article here. http://dailyhive.com/vancouver/canucks-prospect-adam-gaudette-2017
  12. Don't mean to go off topic on the Jake Virtanen thread, but Barkov's defence is as good as his offence, if not better. I'd say that he's way ahead of Horvat in both categories at this moment. (Not saying that Horvat will not catch up one day). Barkov was 6th overall in Selke voting in the 2015/16 season (last year) and put up 59 points in 66 games. This year he has 39 points in 49 games. Horvat in comparison had 40 points in 82 games last year and 44 points in 63 games this year. Either way, I'm a huge Horvat fan and am very happy the Canucks have him, he stacks up very well agains
