  1. Sorry, I guess I misread your comment a little. I probably shouldn't have quoted your comment.What I was referring to was the general consensus from Vancouver Canucks fans saying that Bieksa is equal to Bouwmeester.
  2. I'm sorry but we have reason to argue the bolded statement you have written.For someone like Luongo who is earning almost 7 million (possibly more) per year, and he hasn't won anything, that's being severely overpaid. I think many Canucks fans are underrating Kiprusoff, basing it all on stats and such. All that matters for the goalie is when he makes the save, not how many saves he makes per night. I believe Kelly Hrudey said this once. He led the league in wins last year, so is that saying he isn't a goalie who can win for his team no matter what kind of game his team plays?
  3. I don't see how Bouwmeester is equal to Bieksa. I'm sorry, but did Bieksa's Team Canada invitation get lost in the mail?Bouwmeester had the top TOI per game last year, playing against the likes of Lecavalier, St. Louis, Staal, Ovechkin, Kovalchuk, Malkin, Crosby, etc. Bouwmeester is regarded as one of the best two-way defensemen in the league today. He can score goals and he can keep the puck out of his own end very well. Meanwhile, Bieksa is frankly just an offensive defenseman who seems to turnover the puck a lot (comparable to Phaneuf last season). Bieksa is currently in his prime, Bouwmeester isn't (he's only 25). Stats aren't everything for a defenseman, otherwise someone like Regehr would be regarded as overrated because he doesn't score.
  4. [quote name='ren1 wrote: Hockey_Canada1']shall we compare defensive cores now? For sure! Ours is still the best in the league, and as an added bonus it doesn't bring us $3 million over the cap. Exactly. Gillis hasn't been able to manage the cap efficiently, and look what he has: 1. An inconsistent defensemen who is way over-payed (O'Brien), 2. Another inconsistent defensemen who plays poorly in his own end (Ehrhoff, who was -12 last season) 3. Two cripples who are bound to get injured (Schneider and Salo) 4. A bunch of pylons (Rome and Nycholat) 5. Another player who *gasp* is a turnover machine (Bieksa, who was -4 last season) 6. An overrated shutdown defenseman (Mitchell, who according to Canucks fans should be on Team Canada) 7. And mabye two proven NHL defensemen (Lukowich and Edler)..... but even that's a stretch In other words Gillis has overspent on defense. So now we're overpaying for our defense..... puhhleezze!
  5. You guys are over the cap with these new defensemen, so much for the Flames cap troubles as spoken by Canucks fans
  6. Not......fair...... This just makes me hate Bettman even more
  7. [quote name='The_Don wrote: littlereddevil wrote: The_Don wrote: Demonous_Xodus wrote: The_Don']But again, 100% Sutter became GM during the 04 Season, thus begininng our streak of 5 consecutive playoff appearances. Sutter is also 100% at making the playoffs. You sir, got pwnt. dude, it's a tie. well isn't 5 for 5 better than 1 for 1? 100% is 100% How about consecutive years past the first round? In the immortal words of Jack Black.... "I WIN! ONE TO NOTHIN'!" That's like saying: "oh we did well, we got 1st place, but there only was one team!"

  9. Well I still think Bourque-Jokinen-Iginla will be a solid line, probably not as strong as Sedin-Sedin-Burrows, but still a great line I see Bourque hitting 25 goals and 50 points if he stays healthy all season
  10. Who cares? Besides, look at Darryl Sutter's career stats vs. Mike Gillis' stats Sutter vs. Gillis Mike Gillis was a bust, Darryl Sutter put up very good numbers for someone who was drafted 179th overall. PWNED
  11. Obvious front runners???? Detroit's gotten weaker in the off-season (although they'll still be a strong team), so has San Jose (who's in cap trouble) If you look at the poll results, the majority of people have voted for Other, meaning that there probably will be a huge amount of competition next season. To be honest, next season will be the first season where it's pretty uncertain who'll win....
  12. [quote name='Demonous_Xodus wrote: Dusty_Foot_Philosopher']All emotional attachment/undeserved hatred aside, would Calgary fans trade Jarome Iginla for both the Sedins? Is Vancouver throwing in a first rounder, Edler and Rights to Virtual Sami Salo? I remember that
  13. Okay new topic: Regehr vs. Willie Mitchell (both shut-down defensemen) Who's better?
  14. Alright new discussion... Who has the better coach? Vancouver or Calgary? Simple enough answer.
