Wow you're funny!!!!!
Great insightful post definitely the same thing!
I would probably be open to the Leafs 2018 1st and a 2nd for Tanev, depending on who is available at the spot or if we had another trade lined up to get that pick into the top 15. Canucks need to rebuild right and with the Sedins gone, I really think it’s time to move Tanev for assets to help us get back on track.
I'm saying when you are constantly flying and travelling your body doesn't rest properly. When a stroll through the western conference involves 3 different time zones and switching between them seemingly willy-nilly, yes it takes a toll.
Remember that the line dividing the "west" is between Chicago and Detroit, if New Jersey had a tour of the Eastern Conference, it's under 1.5hr flight to Detroit, Columbus, Pitts, Phi, Carolina, Washington, New York, Long Island, Montreal, Boston, Buffalo, Toronto and Ottawa however the only teams within 1.5 hrs of Vancouver are Calgary and Edmonton and they are in a different time zone so they lose even more time compared to the East who is entirely in a single time zone.
This makes zero sense. That could be potential value for Tanev, albeit without injures. Remember the value that Marner and Nylander had prior to their debuts? Yeah, that's how we value Pettersson.
Odd. I pay pretty close attention to the Canucks, and I can only recall Tanev being concussed once, and that was three seasons ago.
I don't think you got what you wanted to achieve with that post. I'd read it again
That trade proposal is bogus. It's just mind-boggling.
Yeah? How's that looking now bro? Maybe fans of teams that are golfing should say less.
Don't worry, you'll be amongst the rest of us silent types before too long.
Lol you probably waited 10 years to say this didn’t you. Oh wait we both know you did
Dim Jim has big plans for the leagues ****tiest team. We Leafs fans have been there, you're right. Enjoy your time in the gutter.
I mean we first off aren’t the leagues worst team. Second off we actually have a pretty good collection of young players and a lot of cap space. He’s made his mistakes, but Benning has made some really good moves and made some really good picks. And before you bring up Virtanen, that was one pick
Juolevi's future's not looking bright, either.
Completely disagree. His last year was a little rough but he was absolutely terrific this past season.
Horvat, Pettersson and Boeser are looking like good picks. Just a few more like that.
Those three are doing well, along with Gaudette.
Horvat is going to be the captain next season. I’d say he’s past the point of “looking” like a good pick. Also Baertschi, Gaudette, Lind, Dahlen, Juolevi, Brisebois, Jasek, Demko. Plus others like Palmu, Brassard, Lockwood and Gadjovich. Lotta talent
Let's not scoff at Virtanen.
Yes, he's a terrible pick relative to the overall draft position, but he's now shown he can play in this league as a bottom 6 forward. Jake showed significant improvement compared to where his development was last year. He also has some tapped offensive potential.
Also true. But you knew leaf fans would point out Nylander. Which is a fair thing to point out
With that said, I see no reason why Virtanen can't have a Booth like career moving forward.
Maybe he can carve out a career by asking table or booth
Is he wrong? Arrogant **** face called a sweep. Didn’t happen. We won’t overpay for a guy who would be on the IR right now.
Oh I totally agree. Someone in the media (Botchford I think) pointed out that he was playing so much more confidently. Bert wasn’t exactly dominant at Jakes age either.
Did we actually settle on a fair price? Or is it just ridiculousness....
Borgman and 1 was my offer.
Would also do Brown instead.
Or 1, 2,3 probably.
If Jake even accomplishes half the career Bert did, it would be a blessing.
