Myers will be exposed and won't be taken. Not because he is a bad player but because of his salary and term. This is a good thing... gives us an extra protection spot in theory 

I agree and hope he wouldn’t be taken. If he was we would now have that money to spend in a somewhat deflated market. Win/win.

I'm proud of our team tonight.  Great win.  Played hard. Won battles.  Outshot Calgary badly.

 

And.  For the first time this year we turned the tables on Tanev and Markstrom who have been pretty happy about their offseason treason up until now.

 

Sorry guys.  Jeez, what if we actually turn out to be a better team than Calgary and you have to play out your careers there anyway?

They don't want to tell Tyler Myers we like you but you are being exposed.  Cmon.

don't be so  sure about that.  remember the last expansion draft.  this is not a shot at you, but a lot of smarmy types got punked by that e.d.

I misread the post chain - he was actually referring to Markstrom.

 

But 'habitually injured' can happen when you throw yourself in front of every shot possible, and take a hit every time to make the first pass.

 

People here don't realize how 'foundational' he was - or how hard it is to look as good as he does in the midst of a rething.

Hey I absolutely loved the kid. No issues with any shift he ever played for the Canucks. Quinn definitely misses him. But it was a major problem having him miss 20-25 games for his entire career. Thats the reason I'm glad we didn't give him that contract and if I was a betting man I would have to pick the under on 60 games/season average on that deal. It's just a given... death,taxes and tanev injuries.

Absolutely agree on Juolevi. He is really starting to look good.  And I loved his hit on Tkachuck.

 

 But remember Chatfield must play 18 more games = 27 total for the year in order to meet the league requirement that we have one D available to the seattle draft who played 27+ games this year.  Otherwise that has to be either myers or schmidt who is exposed.

 

So there is a specific reason why Chatfield is getting games.

 

 

Excellent point.

Last ED we came out smelling like roses as I recall.

Didn’t Keith say he used to basically lock Matthew and Brady in the basement and make them fight.

 

I can picture it. Tkachuk Sr. sitting in his recliner, stroking his belly, and watching his sons duke it out, sitting there whispering to himself, like an elephantine Palpatine, “good, good, let the hate flow through you.”

 

(Don’t know whether the :lol: or :sick: emoji is appropriate here.)

If this is true, this explains why being a douche is a normal part of being a man to members of this family - yikes !

Loved the player, hate the contract.

Tkachuk only did it cause he knows Edler won’t punch back. Let’s see him do that to Myers.

Let's see him try that on Tryamkin, Train would throw him into the bleachers from 50 ft away like a ragdoll.. I sooooo wish for that day!!!!

They may actually need the salary to get above cap floor, depends who they take from other teams as well
