    You can recall a great team? I can’t. I remember they had the Sedins for a while.

    I never said they were better than Vancouver. But it’s hilarious to me that you think they’ve been worse. They’re the same franchise, and you worship one and dump on the other.

    If Anaheim was smart they would have a fire sale and find buyers for Perry and Getzlaf, not try and salvage this team, heck I’d even see if I could get some serious return for rakell. I’d like to see a team do a true strip down and rebuild and I believe Anaheim’s fans would support that with their recent cups

    Why on earth would you tear down this team when you have so many good players on good contracts in the 24-28 age range?

    Also Anaheim’s Cup was 12 years ago.

    Anaheim doesn't need to have a firesale or a full blown rebuild. Trading someone like Hampus Lindholm who's a 25 year old top 15 defenseman in the sport on a ridiculously good contract would be insanely stupid. Rakell, Kase, and Manson are also tremendously effective players on steal contracts so really their financial situation isn't as dire as it's made out to be, Perry and Getzlaf are seemingly treated as equal these days when in reality Getzlaf is still productive and Perry is not an effective player, both only have two years left.

    Their farm system has historically been great at producing good players, they have a lot of quality young players in the A right now who will be NHL players soon replacing some of the trash they have right now.

    This season they're a disaster, but long term I'm not sure they're that screwed. LTIR Kesler and Perry, fire the coach (just did), trade Silfverberg and recoup assets, clear out some of the junk and replace with good young pieces. If they do that they'll be fine.

    Because they have be abysmal, having players on good contracts only increases their return value

    The 2011 Canucks dominated the league with ease.

    Ducks will be good once Kesler is off the team.
    Let the schmuck rot on the bench with the team going nowhere this season..

    Kesler no longer wants to cup chase, his broken down body is just collecting checks now as long he’s in the league.

    Carlyle fired and now the GM is the coach???

    I'm not familiar with coaching change and interim coach designation but having a GM as coach doesn't sound like a good idea...

    Worst regulation goal-differential over any 7-game stretch, since 2014.

    20172018CGY7278833-25

    People often observe that teams "respond well" to a coaching change, but when you're firing a coach after you've been out-scored 37-8 in 7 games, I'm pretty sure Gritty could take over as coach and you'd see an improvement.

    Love seeing the guy fail. I have never been so disappointed in a Canuck player ever.

    It actually might work on a short term basis as players will want to be on their best behavior. Nowhere for the players to hide.

    Plus it's hard to be get any worse than losing 19 of 21 and getting **** kicked every night.

    It is disgusting how many people on this board wanted Kase in that draft: So you think you can draft - 2014 edition

    It's a fair question if he'd develop the same way in our system opposed to Anaheim's, but still. Agreed with everyone else; the Ducks have a lot of strong pieces in place to do a quick rebuild.

    They're a Jack Hughes away from a more promising rebuild than us.

    OK, that makes sense.

    Ducks' season's pretty much in the sewer now anyways.

    As he should. Someone who spouts "facts" and refuses to make any attempt to back them up when asked has no credibility.

    The Blues are one of the few teams left that the Canucks have a better history than. Their only 2 cup final appearances occurred when the first expansion started and they were all put into an expansion conference.

    Blues:
    Cups 0
    Conference championships: 0
    Presidents Trophies: 1
    Division Titles: 9

    Canucks:
    Cups: 0
    Conference Champuonships: 3
    Presidents Trophies: 2
    Division Titles: 10

    And in regards to the Canucks never having a great team:
    The 2011 team had the best GF, GA, PP; 3rd ranked PK.
    A hart trophy winner, a selke winner, art ross winner, and a tandem that won the Jennings as well as a GM of the year.

    They lost in the cup final.

    There isn’t a Blues team that touches them.

    Blues win in OT. Beat the Preds 2 in a row. That’s impressive

    didn't the best ever blues team get knocked out in the 1st round on a shot from centre ice?

    Blues are easily making the playoffs this year and if I'm them I;m going after Matt Duchene at the deadline.

    Tarasenko just had a monster game.

    Blues were last place at the beginning of December. 105 point pace since then, put M2B in your prayers folks.

    I have M2B in my dreams but that's a story for another time.:skeptic:

    Weird eh? On a sports teams board you see people trashing another team while praising the "home team". Like it goes against the entire origins of the word 'fan' (fanatic). In any event we're talking about a few posts out of TENS OF THOUSANDS.

    Regardless, neither team has won the Cup yet so it's like arguing who had the hottest date to the school prom when both guys brought their cousins.

    Do the blues feel that they can get past win and Nas in the central? Or cross over and go through Cal and SJ? Do they trust their goaltending?

    At their pace they would owe their 1st to Buffalo. Already dealt their last 4 first round picks (Thompson from 16, the Frost pick by Phi in 17, Farabee pick in 2018, and this years pick). Offset by the Bokk from the statsny deal and Kyrou from the Elliott deal to replenish stock.

    They have some decisions to make in the summer with Schenn and AP eligible for extensions. Big money commitments there.

    Makes no sense to go after Duchene... they’re already deep at the center position. I wouldn’t be surprised if they go after Dzingel or Stone instead of Duchene.
