    Largely when he was paired up with Bieksa. Man, what a nightmare pairing. Yet coaches who've won the Jack Adams trophy never failed to try out that awful combo. For whatever reason, apart, these two guys at their peak were legit top 4 guys. But together? The goalie would see more rubber than a two dollar escort when the navy comes to town.

    I hope Hoglander irritates him even more.

    That might be going too far and writing a cheque he can’t cash but I hope he just keeps doing what he’s doing. He can’t pull a Marchand, this team doesn’t have Chara, Lucic, mcquaid, Thornton etc etc to make sure he doesn’t have to step up.


    I think the team has to dress Macewan, not that he’s a deterrent but he could step up and end it.

    I like Hogs showing his nasty side. Being vicious will create more space. We need more guys who play nasty. We are a soft team.

    I always liked "that goalie has seen more rubber than a dead skunk on the trans Canada hwy" but that one ^^^ just became my go to goalie being shelled comment.

    He’s a guy who helps with winning by controlling the puck, and battling hard. I’m hoping he develops into a super nasty, vicious rat, that puts up 60 plus points. We need that.

    All this talk about Edler. I would not mind resigning him to a 1 year deal, 2.5M or less.

    Exactly....when Dubois is back and fully integrated into the lineup, the Jets will leave the Canucks in their dust in this division.

    In fact it's looking more and more to me that barring any sort of miracle run by the bottom-feeders, the four playoff teams in the North will be the Leafs, Habs, Jets and Oilers. They could almost end the season tomorrow.

    I pick the Flames to miss for one reason. In all there years in VanCity, Markstrom and Tanev only led the Canucks to the playoffs once, and that was last season in the bizarre COVID season where everybody with a pulse made the playoffs. Something's missing in this Calgary core and their core is starting to get older.

    Breaking News: Most teams lose after giving up the first goal. Given that the Canucks are a below-average team, they're going to lose even more often.

    I'm more concerned with the process and battle level. They pushed back and took control of the game. I mean, I guess you probably had your eyes closed the entire game.

    If you want to be deliberatively obtuse, then by all means go for it.

    Canucks didn't finish their chances but I thought they played a solid game except for the last 12 minutes or so of the first period. Team has been much better in the last six games but only earned five points due to lack of scoring and a couple of important goals against that resulted from unusual misfortune.

    Zero for eleven after giving up the first goal isn't some stat you brush away.

    me too, but with two caveats. one, that we have four guys ahead of him in the depth chart (or, say, two LDs) and two, that we have a coach that can control himself from playing edler more than 18-20 with 20 being the absolute max.

    not super optimistic about either of those being in place.

    There is no reason why Edler should sign for $2.5M or anything close to it. He is still a solid player.

    Next season how does our top four look?
    Hughes Myers
    OJ Schmidt
    I’d keep Benn (at 1.5 or less on a one year deal) to play with Bone in our bottom pair.
    It’s time to move on from Edler, unless he accepts a very team friendly contract. (3 or less for one year.)

    Barring some miracle change in pro scouting we can't afford not to resign a clearly aging Edler.

    I would settle with Hughes, Juolevi, Edler on the left side ONLY if the Canucks can find a legit top4 right-side Dman. Leave Myers on the third pairing, and have Schmidt and a new top4 right side guy play on the top two pairing. However there isn't a ton of top 4 right shot dmen coming to the UFA market this off season. The only one i see is Dougie Hamilton. However he's maybe over-kill. He's a legit top pairing, number 1 guy. He'll command $7.5MM - $8.0MM. Unless we can off-load Eriksson, we are in cap troubles so he's not an option.
    Essentially, i don't expect a major upgrade next season :(
    Imagine if we could some-how land Hamilton though. That would be insaaane, what an ideal partner for Hughes

    I think Hog will hit everything that moves next game and it will be a treat to watch. . . I hope he hammers forbort all game and the refs actually have the sense to call the retaliation this time

    Juolevi hasn't played at anywhere near the level required to pencil him into the top 4. He figures to be in a battle with Rathbone in training camp. And based on how Edler's played since signing his current contract I don't see why he should sign for anything like $2.5M-$3M next season unless he craters from here onward.

    We suck with an aging, and regressing Edler. It’s time to move on, and play younger guys who will improve with minutes played, and not regress. But, if Edler will take a one year deal at no more than 3 I could see value in keeping him.

    And if they really want to stop damage, reduce fighting. Its the only team sport stupid enough to allow it, and only in N america.
