  1. Sooo any word on if Bertuzzi is moving back here since Biden won or was that all a lie?

      Couldn't say it better than CBH, Biden is pretty right wing for Canada.  Would not make sense for him to move to Canada because of Biden.

      @BoKnows I think Biden isn't really that right wing (nor left wing the way the GOP claimed he is lol).  He's more 'establishment' or 'status quo'.  That's why the Dems selected him as their candidate.  He's probably legitimately more GOP than Dotard every was (who is only in it to line his own pockets).  But I'm just stating this as my opinion vs claiming it's a fact.

      I think Biden is a progressive right winger.

  2. Didn’t Ottawa offer him more than that and he turned them down? So much for being his own manager and getting a better deal lol.
  3. I always think there are too many teams in the league watering down the talent. Realistically there’s at least 5-6 teams that can get cut from the league since they don’t really generate much revenue. Sorry but I don’t want to see guys like Beagle and Sutter in the NHL. Imo they aren’t entertaining. Rather have Horvat top out as a 3rd liner in an extremely talented league.
  4. I had a nightmare that the NHL season was cancelled for Canadian teams only. All US teams could still play but our government banned the teams from participating and they couldn’t just go play in the states either. It was horrible

      That season and Stanley Cup winner would've had a big asterisk by not having to play against Canadian teams!

      Did you have nightmares like this when there was a lockout?

      @Ghostsof1915 No just because of the coronavirus

  5. If we had an average NHL goalie last season we would not have made the playoffs. We would probably be a bottom 10 team if not for him. Very few goalies would be able to pull that off. The last few years he’s been elite as in top 3 at least. He’s masked quite a few problems on the team
  6. Shower Thought: There are too many teams in the league watering down the talent pool. Sorry but I don’t want to see 3rd and 4th line checkers and grinders playing 15min a game. Plus there are very talented players who get wasted on bad teams for year and years. There are enough good players in the league to make it so given less teams in the league, talented players like Pearson, Toffoli, and even Boeser would be 3rd or 4th liners. I’d like to watch those games more than Beagle and Sutter grinding out games. Just a thought

      My Op? Last 3 decades were basically a write-off. We'll never know what we coulda' had, only what we got.

       

      BIG $ has done this to many things that were once enjoyable.

      maybe they should go back to the original 6 team league. we could watch petey and quinn playing for toronto.

      @smithers joe Not that extreme but there clearly are some cities that should not have NHL teams or the NHL can do without **cough** Arizona, Florida **cough**

  7. If Benning isn’t able to move out any contracts, can he just send Sutter to the AHL to get cap compliant. Put Ferland on LTIR and then call Sutter back up within like a day so he doesn’t have to leave the team?

      I hear ya @Roger Neilsons Towel, but I don't think the ~$1M savings is enough.  CapFriendly shows the Canucks are at $83M and the Cap is $81.5M.  I'm hoping JB has more up his sleeve than just papering Sutter to the AHL.

      @goalie13 Not agreeing with them just thought some didn’t understand the point they were making. I would have to agree with you that Sutter’s $1M alone wouldn’t be enough. 

    4. King Heffy

      Papering two guys should cover it.

  8. I don’t like this deal. I think Schmidt is going to be another contract that will be a burden in a few years. But I’ll wait and see how it turns out. Just want to get that out there so I can say I told you so in a few years or never mention it again if he turns out to be great lol

      Go to other forums and see how their fans are calling this "highway robbery" and how they wished their team had picked him up for dirt. Of course you're a prisoner of your own mind and nothing gets through the walls :)

      You can have an opinion, but likewise others can have the opinion that yours is wrong. 

       

      Pre-emptively adding the whole "told ya so" bit is never a good look fwiw.

      I think you're terribly wrong Ken, and that Schmidt may or may not end up being a great pickup!  

  9. Benning supporters are just like Trump supporters. He can do no wrong apparently lol

      The &^@# does Benning and the Canucks have to do with Trump? Does TDS really reach this far? Is BDS gonna be a thing now?

      I would like the minus button back just for your post!

  10. Where do people hear about player fan signings? Just saw Naslund did one at Metrotown yesterday but I didn’t see anything about it until after it was done. I need to know

      Aw what!? I was there yesterday and didn't have a clue. Favourite player growing up too...

    2. NucksPatsFan

      NucksPatsFan

      The hosting company(s) will usually only let their followers know via social media platforms/e-mail blasts so that they get first access to buying tickets. Otherwise what happens (and unfortunately this happened at the naslund signing yesterday) is autograph hounds/e-bay hounds who are looking for inventory to sell end up buying up all the tickets. There were tons of them there yesterday

  11. If anyone has Super Mario Maker 2 play my courses please :)

      Haven't gotten to listen to it yet.  Any chance I'll like it if I thought Revival was trash?

      I think most people thought Revival wasn’t great but this isn’t anything like it. This is Em going off on everyone. He goes hard af. Give it a listen. 

  13. Anywhere to watch the other rounds of the draft on TV?

  14. So if we sign Hughes now can he play in the AHL next year?

      Thanks! Would love to see him in the A next year.

      Yes. But, he sounds pretty convinced he's going back to U-Mich.

      @Jaku From what he's said today, it actually seems like Hughes thinks he can play in the NHL next year. Wouldn't be at all surprised to see him turn pro.
