Ever? That's the dumbest thing anyone has ever said here, congrats. No small feat.

dramatic changes to"the size and nature of the team. Its identity. Yes, Pettersson, Boeser and Horvat drive the attack with their skill, but the Canucks will be physically harder to play against."

https://www.sportsnet.ca/...ayoffs-appear-attainable/

Add in Tryamkin later in the season and prospects like MacEwen, Lind, even an early appearance from Podkolzin, all add to the new identity going forward.

How can this not be a playoff team now in the weaker Pacific division.

- NuckUp



I think Tanev out and Tryamkin in in Feb. I don't think MacEwen is ready but they did get Bailey . Lind absolutely not ready.

Honka available. Does JB make a play?

Hope not. He scores less than an injured Tanev

I think JB is set with his roster. He has guys coming up in the next year or two to replace guys who will age out. He’s in the mode now of unloading guys.

Though, to be honest, I don’t know much about Honka. But reading that article with him as a healthy scratch most of last year, don’t know why JB would take that on now.

They've added a super old goalie in mike Smith, added Thomas jurco, and markus granlund, and will sell low on jesse puljujarvi. I think they regress lol

Once the trade goes through and they add Demko, jv, madden and LE things will look up

Everyone thought ferland and Dzingel were going to get bigger contracts AAV wise ...waiting a week in free agency is where you can get your best bargains for sure

Even old Eugene is smart enough to know if you having the brothers on the same team means full arenas

I read/heard somewhere Loui moved his family back to DAL, not sure if this is true or not.

Not necessary. Just slip some drugs in his suitcase and send him across the border. It worked for the Kings. Bath salts seem fitting.
- CubanBuffet


i was thinking of this scenario as i was reading along... except in the sense that it didnt really work out for the kings so not much hope for the nucks to successfully make loui dissappear with no consequences. kings still got stuck with a recapture penalty and a "termination fee" hit lol

Doing well...how are things on your end?

It's amazing reading these comments - have not been here in a while - seeing people defending Benning "he's gotten better over the years"...like trading a 1st round pick for Miller. I swear, for some of these stans, Benning could crap on their chest and they'd call it chocolate cake.

Yeah, I'm leaving you with that image.

No, no he hasn't...and Tyler Myers and Julian Brisebois are very thankful for that.
