  1. Depending if you get a laugh out of things like this, or it makes you mad, everyone should head over to the Canucks boards. There are some favs there claiming Tkachuk purposely kicked and cut Edler in the first game, and that Petterson was justified in his slash last night. There is some very rich takes going on over there.
  2. I am curious if anyone watched the Avs or Blues games last year, after the trade deadline? The reason I ask is because obviously the Blues won the cup, and we all know how the Avs handled us. That being said, the Avs finished to post deadline schedule 11-8 I believe, and the Blues were 12-7. Not exactly tearing it up heading down the stretch, and they both had up and down seasons, then really turned it on in the playoffs. I am not saying we are either of those teams, but I’m sure their fans weren’t planning the parade heading in to the post season. I guess my point is that this is not the same team as last year (make-up wise), so we have no idea how they are going to perform/react to the post season. I am in the same boat that I don’t view the 2nd rounder(s) as much of a crazy loss, and I am willing to give this core and be more shot in the playoffs. If they crap the bed again down the stretch or in the playoffs, then the off-season is the time to move pieces out. Admittedly it’ll suck to lose out on the pick(s) Brodie would have fetched, however I’ll personally pay that price for one more shot with him as a part of the core. You can still trade him in the off-season for a lesser pick, to a team that wants to negotiate with him before FA. Obviously not ideal in hindsight if they go nowhere, but life is all about taking those chances.
  3. I’ll be very interested to see if any of the Oilers players or ex-players who decided to spout off about the code, and what is “right” after the Tkachuk hits/non fight, will take the time to condemn this incident like they were so happy to do in the media before. If they do not, then it sure paints them as giant hypocrites. Guys like Kevin Bieksa, Ryan Kessler and others, who had no issues with throwing their two cents out there, better be at the forefront once again.
  4. Here’s a question that I think even Canucks fans would agree the answer is no to. Would you trade Rasmus Andersson for Sven Baertschi straight up now? It’s amazing what a few years does to change the perception of a trade. I remember it being critiqued at the time as losing a 1st round pick for a 2nd rounder, and now I would consider that flipped.
  5. That’s a very good point. I figured it was way off.
  6. I was thinking the same thing. What about the following trade? Brodie Frolik Jankowski 3rd round pick for Laine Beaulieu Is this an overpayment or not enough?
  7. This logic doesn’t make sense. I think we all can agree that Neal wasn’t going to play top 6 this year, in Calgary. He didn’t fit in the bottom 6 with his style, so we had no where to play him. So instead of paying Neal $5.75M to play in a bottom 6 role that he wouldn’t fit in, we pay Lucic $5.25M to play a bottom 6 role that he will fit in to. I agree it’s too much money to pay a bottom 6 guy, but we were going to be doing it either way. At least we have a better fit this way, and for $500,000 cheaper.
  8. The other angle for the Aho contract is that it walks him right into UFA, does it not? How much AAV did he give up in order to get that, as well? When thinking about Tkachuk and other RFA’s, unless you’re planning on giving them the same opportunity, you should plan on the AAV to be higher than Aho’s.
  9. Or maybe the blame lays with him for not pushing to make them give him games.
  10. So who makes out better here? Calgary or Edmonton?
  11. I have heard that Mike Smith is headed to the Oilers.
  12. That would be a pretty major accomplishment, considering that Stone is no longer in Ottawa.
  13. Wow, this is truly a shock. I am not one of the huge posters here, however I am always on and reading others opinions. FF52 was definitely a great poster and you could tell that he was a great person as well. Rest in peace Larry, and hopefully we all can carry on his legacy on here, in some way.
  14. The more I watch Calgary lately the more I think that they need to add one more top end forward, like Stone. Plus I believe that they should go after Howard or another goalie, and carry three goalies or trade Smith.
