  1. Question for you. Hypothetically, if the Canucks were to claim Forsberg, and then subsequently place him on waivers as Carolina has, would Carolina then become the only team who could claim him and also place him on the AHL team or taxi squad. Thus, disallowing Edmonton from getting him on their taxi squad? For some reason my thought was that if a team claims someone they could not waive him again within a certain timeframe.
  2. I don't think he meant to hit the guy clean in the head and knock him out. But he did. So he deserves a suspension.
  3. “If DiPietro is there you have to take him. We have to.” Judd Brackett Kind of why I’m annoyed we added a 3rd in the Miller trade. DiPietro and Madden are the kind of gems Judd can find in round 3.
  4. Why is JB only picking wingers this draft?

      We need wingers. I would like some defensemen too, but we are short on good wingers.

      He thinks the wingers were the best players available?

      I trust his judgment on drafting.  He must believe those players are the BPA.  Only a fool drafts for position because you don’t know what the team will look like in a few years when these drafted guys will be ready for the NHL.

  5. Benning gets his choice of any dman in the draft past Dahlin. Weeeoooo.

  6. Markstrom clearly was saying that his and his teammates effort wasn't at an NHL level. He obviously wasn't saying he and and his teammates aren't NHL level players. But our wack media and fanbase is going to go way overboard with that comment.

      I don't listen to TSN, I'd say that's one way to hold them accountable.

      I miss The Score when it was still by itself. Lesser of all the evils

    4. Undrafted


      Much ado about nothing

  7. My point was that the powerplay guys were on the ice. Why would any of them jump Lewis when they're about to stay on the ice for a 5 on 3? Yes a physical response would send a good message, but I think the fact Boeser scored seconds later was an even better one. One that we might not of had an opportunity to get if someone took an instigator jumping Lewis.
  8. Who did you want jumping Lewis and taking a penalty right before a 5 on 3 powerplay? One of the Sedins? Horvat? Edler?
  9. I assume Kole's agent knew this as well and wants a piece of that couple million.
  10. How important is Bo Horvat to this hockey team? 5.5M is a steal for him.

      Great contract.

      It'll be one of the greatest contracts in the NHL in a few years as average salaries continue to rise.

  11. He's 21 already... you must be mistaken for the possibility of him making the Men's Olympic team this year.
  12. Three thoughts tonight;


    1) Travis Green could very well be our coach for the next decade.

    2) That Horvat contract could be a steal real quick if he's contributing like this with those minutes already.

    3) I'm LOLing at Shipachyev legit being sent to the AHL and Vegas is actually winning (albeit because Fleury and Neal have been outstanding).

      Even AV wasn't our coach for a decade lol.

    3. ThaManbeast


      AV probably should've been our coach for a decade. And I've got this from following Green since his Utica days. He took awful Comet's rosters filled with ECHL players to the playoffs. He's young, and seems to be clued into the direction that the league is going and is able to get the most out of his players.

    4. MNA


      I think AV could've been our coach for a decade. It's just after that sweep in 2013, someone had to be let go, so Gillis basically let AV go to save himself (at least that's how I see it). AV was never really the problem, in my opinion.

  13. Stecher is making the Canucks this year.

    3. Joe_Kerr


      He's playing like the dman we all want Subban to be haha

    4. Hairy Kneel

      Hairy Kneel

      He's doing like Hutty.

  14. Anyone know which Youngstars got invited to main camp??

  15. Does anybody know his actual weight? I've seen everything between 220 and 250.
