Thing is, if our core is very good they should make the playoffs.

 

If they don't make the playoffs, it suggests that our core isn't as good as we like to think it is.

Our CORE alone is not enough, its a complete team effort firing on all cylinders that will take us to the promised land .

 

Come on JB fill those holes in the line-up with complimentary players that fill roles.

 

Go Canucks go

Between Eriksson, Beagle and Roussel, each point they had last year cost $1,200,000.

A lot (almost everyone) is really concerned with OEL's salary, still 6 years at around $7.2.  That is a lot, but will it be a crazy amount in 3-5 years? Or the standard for a Top 4 Dman? I think the move to VAN will rejuvenate OEL, a fresh start, probably feels like a young guy again with his excitement.

 

If OEL wins a Cup in VAN, is the trade worth it?  I'm trying not to focus on the money with this deal, but more of what can the Canucks accomplish over the next 5 years. Maybe this was an ownership decision. Bring him in, and if needed, they can buy out the last year of his contract or something like that.  

 

Benning said he would be aggressive, and he has been. He's not done, still working on creating a contender. Hey, if MTL can do it...

No, No and NO !   Anyone is better than him.   

Anyone is better?? Come on man, while I'm not in favor of resigning him, i have respect for him as a player and a person. Thanks Brandon for your professionalism and time with the team

 

Head out to Viking Alberta and spew your hate for Sutter.

Sutter re-signed at about 1.5 mil for 1 year as our 4C is just fine. Sutter playing 10-12 minutes per night at this point might get another very useful year out of him.

Decades of suffering have led Canucks fans to this point. 
Yes, for a cup it is worth it. Unfortunately there are a lot of steps need to be made before this is realistic. Whether JB has the wherewithal to make those moves seems highly dubious.

I agree. He’s still great at faceoffs and the PK. Unfortunately I think one of the Alberta teams will sign him for more than we’re willing to pay him.

Still hard to believe, benning wanted a better team next year and erased the entire bottom six except motte 

 

free agency still to come 

letsss gooo

I think I started to sound like a broken record last year when I was saying you can’t win with ZERO production out of the bottom 6. Lol I’m so glad it’s going to be new and that we protected Motte. Motets honestly a Allstar

probably. I joked a while back about Sutter and Edler being the next F'Lames but now it seems likely :P

I'm expecting a Russian "Nanny" player for Podz to be recruited by Uncle Jim within the next week.  That will possibly be the trade that involves the departure of Holtby or Schmidt.

I said quite a while back that I'd take a look at Dmitry Kulikov if I was JB.

 

His current deal pays 1.5 million....he's got decent size....can throw a hit.....could be a decent third pairing guy. The only downside is that he's a lefty, but you can't have everything....

I have no doubt that JB has talked to Sutter about a contract, but he would have been signed by now if they were in the same ballpark $ and/or term.

 

Hopefully they can sign Brassard at 1-1.5m$
