  1. Who makes the decision? Player? Doctor? If it's up to the player, I wouldn't trust a pro athlete to 'quit' on his team. You've seen how it works...they always want to play and try to win for the team. Also, does refusing to play line them up for suspension?
  2. The NHL is bush league. All the ignored headshots and now this. All they care about is putting a team on the ice; it doesn't matter if they have been ravaged by Covid19 or that they are unprepared, both mentally and physically. AND the schedule is a farce. I'm glad JT had the balls to speak up. If he doesn't feel ready to play, I can only imagine the guys that had the virus must be feeling. The boys really need our support now. I know they will work hard and do their best, despite the fact that they are not prepared to play professional hockey. It's g

  5. He's not a fit for our team...out he goes!
  6. Hardly. The other teams, including TO have picked in the top 10 over the past 4 drafts. I don't know any Canuck fans that compare themselves with Buffalo's situation; although the Oilers were probably far worse. Stop playing about, Kiddo. Gaudette (who is still developing) was a successful pick for a 5th rounder, as was Forsling. We will wait and see how Tryamkin does this coming season. It's not JBs fault he wanted to return to Russia. McCann has done very well; especially recently. Boeser as a late 1st rounder is exceptional. You can continue
  7. You can go through other teams if you like. That's 4 picks between 5-10. Quinn, Pete, Juolevi, Virtanen. I think Demko and Hogs are no-brainers for reaching 100 games in the near future. We'll see about Podz's future later on. I chose the Cdn teams because they have all been rebuilding recently. The probability of claiming an elite player in the top3 is far greater than 5- 10. A top 3 pick also get a top 3 in the 2nd round. Picks 5-10 are not sure things. Lots of busts in that range. Where JB has done well is in the latter round pics.
  8. Let's look at other Cdn teams since 2014 then... Leafs 4 (including a 1st & 4th) Jets 5 Cdns 3 (including Serg who was traded) Oil 4 (including 1st & 2nd) ============================================================================================= Try again next year, when you will likely have top include Joulevi, Demko, Hogs, and Tryamkin (if we see a full season) Podz if he joins the team for the remaining games. Wow! 12 players with over 100 games in 8yrs Pretty good without ever having a single pick under 5th overall.
  9. In those 30 picks, can't they utilize the UFA market, trade picks for players, or take on cap dumps for picks/players? I'm sure they could do better than anything the Canucks are offering.
  10. Well, seeing as McC was just a rookie, I can forgive him for that sort of thing. About Gaud...I don't like what I'm hearing, but it still sounds enhanced by some fans. I suppose we'll never know what really happened.
  11. Bunch of speculation on Gaud. Gimme some truth. I don't recall JMc being a cap dump, but he only had 1 year to prove himself and the off he goes. Jared McCann has 21 pts in 29 games this season and has just been moved to Pits #1 PP. He would look pretty good on our top 6.
  12. My preference of the two (Gaud/Virt) was Gaud, but I realized when Pears was re-signed, neither player was going to be protected in the ED. JB has always liked Lind's game, so he takes the final protections spot. Still think Gaud should have been given another chance; I mean, most of the team has had a mediocre season. In the end, I suspect that Seattle may pick Jake over Bowey. A 6th round pick always gets another chance to see what he can do with a new team.
  13. The NHL management are total hypocrites. Time and again they have proven that they really don't care about head injuries. Reaves continues to headshot players and sees little consequences. This time he didn't even get penalized during the game and then the NHL considered it 'poor timing' and that he wasn't targeting the head'. Regardless, he still hit the guy in the head.
