Obviously Dats and Z have been fantastic so far but Danny D has been great on the back end. The less I have to say his name the better...very few mistakes and when he does make one its in the right spots on the ice.
I think we should get used to a lot of this, we are essentially the same team we iced in the regular season last yet. Filp and Weiss might as well be the same guy and Alfie and Brunner might as well be the same guy which leaves us with the Cleary's, Bert's and Franzen's floating around the ice because they are too slow..until this team gets Gus and Tatar playing full time or makes a trade to get some speed we are a 5th-8th seed in this conference. I hope they prove me wrong as they usually do but I expect a lot of nights like this with this lineup.
Weiss 24.5m 5 years. What's are better deals? Vinny, clarkson, fil, and even clowe may be a better deal considering we could of used his size.
All signing Weiss tells me is helm will be on litr all year. We didn't need a bottom 6 center we needed a top 6 winger. It says a lot when your second line of franzen Weiss and alfie and Alfie is the best on that line....
I am done here today, this comment takes the cake ...4 concussions in 13 months and 3 goals last year.
No this isn't an overreaction thread. I'm just wondering what is everyone's thoughts right now?
Let's look at our team. We lose fil and Brunner which are negatives. Lose cleary and Sammy which are positive.
Gain Alfie and Weiss. So as of right now we are a worse team from last year.
Then to top it all off we could of had a much better player in fil for 5m or Vinny for 4.5m but we got stuck with Weiss for just over 4m?
Then the best part is bobby Ryan got traded for almost nothing. Nyquist, a 1st, and what any other younger prospect not named mantha, Sproul, oullet, mrazek and it would've been a done deal. Youre talking a no brainer of a deal. Ana gave him him for almost nothing they could be got so much more.
So I ask unless there's a more trades or signings(cleary makes us worse) what are everyone's reactions and thoughts right now.
Mine is I'm quite mad. Holland continues to let us down. And THE ONLY wah I see us making the playoffs is we need DAT z kronwall ericsson and Howard to play like like they did this year. As well as guys like Nyquist Anderson Tatar smith and dekeyser need to play major roles as well.
Losing Fil is a negative? He's more than had his chance to prove himself as a legit center in this league and he's coming off arguably his worst year ever. It was painful...he floated around the ice, afraid to shoot, afraid to go to the net..fresh meat down the middle. I like Brunner, it's hard to give up goal scoring but it was brutally obvious that this guy was a 1 dimensional player..he's terrible defensively and management knows they have guys with similar goal scoring ability in the system ( Gus and Tatar) Alfie is a low risk high reward for 1 season..nothing wrong with that move at all. We are super deep up front and have lots of pieces to trade.
Weiss isn't as good as Flip, and he's older. This is turning into a train wreck.
Haha really? they are less that a year apart in age and Weiss has scored more points per game in his career than Fil. Time for a change at center on the 2nd line and I'm all for some new blood there. Fli was so passive this year it was hard to watch.
They traded the 1a goalie to a team that already has one of the greatest goalies of all time, Schneider has to ride the pine for a year to watch Brodeur play out his final year and now the Nucks are stuck with a goalie who clearly doesnt have much interest in playing for them......nice move Gillis..this just reeks or terrible and it looks so good on them.
Hillarious that the Canucks are now fielding offers for Schneider..what a total mess that is..they know they can't get anything for Luongo at this point and no one will take that albatross of a contract so it's panic time.
