What the F is a Taj? 

 

'Read between the lines'.....sooo, like, something that wasn't said? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Someone whose self-identity is entirely derived from what a few hundred people on Twitter think of him. Media manipulate this guy into creating drama for the market. Reason number 1,117 for why I no longer have any hockey accounts on Twitter.

I haven't listened/read local media for a while.

I rely on the great minds of CDC for opinions on the team. I mean it, some of the posters on here are fantastic and the debates that the groups have tend to iron out facts and popular opinion without the drama and snake oil that the click bait, sh!t stirring, talking heads try to feed us.

My prediction is:

We trade Bo + 9OA to Jersey for Jack Hughes + 4OA.

With 4OA we draft Luke Hughes.

Hello :frantic:

Could be fun?

 

Hoglander - Pettersson - Boeser

Miller - Hughes - Podkolzin

 

Hughes - Hughes

Overtime could be Hughes to Hughes to Hughes and we score!

Is VAN becoming a place players may not want to play for? Benning made some changes last year, by allowing Stecher, Tanev, Markstrom and Toffoli to sign somewhere else. I think this really pi**ed off the players that management would let 4 veteran players leave like that, and then brought in Vesey and Boyd to fill the void, relied on Michaleis and Hawryluk. They all did a subpar job really. 

 

Benning really needs to do a few BIG things to turn this team around, make them better. And if he doesn't and continues to plead for everyone to be patient, it's not going to sit right and some of the players may want out. 

 

Not only that, but this will be SEA's first season, and it would be bad if VAN got their a**es handed to them every time they played them.  VAN needs to be more competitive, tougher to play against.

I agree somewhat but with some thought that Bo and Co are understanding of the cap situation.  Obviously Toffoli was a big loss and the guys would have liked Tanev still.  Perhaps they also didn't like the Schmidt addition which makes sense this summer given the rumors / news.

Then we can become the Vancouver "Hughes".  Who?  Yes, that's what I said - Vancouver "Hughes".

I don't see how we wouldn't be a winner at that time.  
Reason is, we'd have a guy on our team called "Bear".  Like the animal.  There's no way we're not winners or at least bad-asses at that point.  B)

I wasn't trying to imply that the Horvat thing is legitimate.  

 

I do however, believe that the Canucks need to take a more aggressive stance in this off season and not just "bring the band back together" for next season.  

 

Which UFA has Benning committed to bringing back?  As far as I can see he isn’t re-signing any one of them. At least not on their terms.
 

And he just traded for Dickinson, is bringing in Podkolzin, and if the rumours are true he is actively shopping Holtby and Schmidt. 
 

Looks to me like Benning is sticking to his word that he is going to make some significant changes.

Nope.

Team has a very bright future and is located in the best city in the NHL.

So first, Taj isn't a source at all. He's an idiot. You seemingly chose to include his tweet because it reinforces the Bo's going to leave storyline. 

 

Nowhere did the agent state that they'd have a hard time keeping Bo. Nowhere. 

Isn't Taj supposed to be Squamfan? Haha!

How soon can Benning start to make trades again? 

 

EDIT - Found out it's at 1:00 pm on Thursday, teams can resume regular operations.

Word for word:

 

Quote

RD:  Hey Pat you also represent the captain of the Vancouver Canucks Bo Horvat whose contract’s up in a couple of years.  You know, ah, when I watch Bo in the exit meetings the years over I-I-I see a player that wants to win bad, Pat….really wants to win bad. He’s only had the one playoff success and that was in the bubble in Edmonton.  But you’re just…your thoughts on Bo and and where he’s at with Vancouver right now.

 

PM:  You know what I think, um, he’s very competitive and he’s been around long enough that he saw uh, every year others winning the Stanley Cup and that’s what you play the game for so he’s very much looking forward to uh the team moving forward that success was to within one game of uh eliminating Vegas creates a (? - sounded like “vest”) for you know how good a team can be when everybody’s on and he’s uh not becoming impatient but becoming impatient in the sense that he wants to win and be in the playoffs every year so he…he contributes as well as he can.  He’s got more to give, that’s coming for sure uh, he’s very passionate about the game and passionate about the city of Vancouver and uh can’t wait for the next season and and uh trust he’ll do everything he can to make that better for Vancouver.

Not sure how you get anything related to the OP?   He ain't no quitter....Kes may have gone searching for greener grass but Bo will help sow some here.

Yup,

 

Bo is a competitor and he wants to win in Vancouver.... I wouldn't want it any other way from the Canucks captain.

 

This is very much a non story story.
