I think the Canucks need a coach like Torts to light a fire under the players asses. It will also be entertaining to watch.

Wow, Malkin got paid big time today. Penguins sign the centre to an 8 year, 76 million extension. $10 million signing bonus.

-could have gotten more on the open market. -heard that Malkin was asking for $10 million per year.

Penguins, Malkin agree to eight-year, $76 million extension

The team is strong. They might do some rebuilding of their defensive core.

My guess is that Letang will be traded. This site mentions that his agent is helping him negotiate for an extension, for 7 million a year. -doubtful that the Penguins can keep Letang and stay within the salary cap.

Where do you guys think Jerome is going to end up? Is he going to take less to go to another team with a shot or try and get paid market value which is still going to be a big paycut from what he's been earning the last bunch of years.

He deserves it.

Top 5 MVP candidates each year always include Crosby, Malkin, or Stamkos.

Too bad Canucks fans can never celebrate with Lucic even if he wins the cup

from 2011
Quote:
Apparently some people in Vancouver still can’t get over the Canucks' loss to the Bruins in the Stanley Cup finals. Milan Lucic is set to have his day with the Stanley Cup in his native Vancouver and according to his mother Snezana, Lucic plans to keep his celebration low key and private due to some recent incidents.

"There is a certain amount of tension right now," Lucic's mom, told the Vancouver Courier. "It's not all of Vancouver, just certain individuals."

According to the article in the Courier, a photo of Lucic in his Bruins uniform at a local hockey rink was vandalized, and last month when Lucic attended a local Greek Festival, a fight broke out in the crowd around him. Plans to bring the Stanley Cup to Kitsilano Beach Park for the sports festival, Kits Fest, have reportedly been scratched and Lucic plans to keep his celebrations with the Cup more private.

This is not the first time the Lucic family has felt the ire of Canucks fans. During Game 1 of the finals, Lucic’s grandparents were harassed at Rogers Arena.

“It’s funny they say that,” Lucic said defending Boston fans at the time. “Because I remember after Game 1, people in Vancouver throwing popcorn and peanuts at my grandparents. That’s almost as low as it gets as that goes. They’re my grandparents. They’re in their 60s. If there is anyone you should show respect to, it’s them."

Not surprised @ the Lucic celebration part, didn't really know about the popcorn and peanut throwing though..

Vancouverities/Canucks fans sure have made a name for themselves

contract probably has the heftiest years of payment at the beginning, so next season he will make somewhere in the range of 11 million if we assume he is not making as much as much Sid

Lol at the people bitching about Malkin's contract. Do you morons realize his cap hit is only going up by 800K? I'd take their situation any day of the week, having the two best players in the world as your top 2 centres.

Compare Perry's/Getzlaf's cap hits to Crosby's/Malkin's and...

Also..Malkin's new contract takes affect AFTER next season which means the salary cap will be much higher then next season's pre-determined salary cap.

We don’t need someone to crack the whip: Bieksa
Whomever the Canucks hire as coach, blueliner says they’re inheriting a veteran, internally accountable, team


It’s always been about the room.

There’s the Mind Room, the Star-Trek like locker-room and the room they turned into a posh players’ lounge complete with chef service.

The Vancouver Canucks often reference the room — that place where they take refuge from the coaching staff and media to hold each other accountable — and the veterans who set that performance bar are left alone by Alain Vigneault. It created urgency from within and also a comfort zone.

How the successor to Vigneault sells the buy-in will be more important than finding that third-line centre or improving a pitiful power play.

Being swept aside in the playoffs should provide all the incentive, but the Canucks said the same thing a year ago when they bowed out of the postseason in five games. They believed in the core. They believed in the coaches. The refrain echoed again after the San Jose Sharks series, and you wonder if the new coach may have to be as visible in the room as behind the bench.

Constricted by salary-cap concerns and forced to fast-track prospects, the core will have to do more than talk a good game among themselves.

“I don’t think we need somebody to come in and crack the whip,” defenceman Kevin Bieksa said Thursday.

“We can work together toward a common goal. I still believe in this team and that the core can win and that we’re young enough to win. We’re more mature and even-keeled, and maybe (coach’s rants) is appropriate on rare occasions, but every coach has his own strategy and opinions on how they should act.

“We’ve grown up a lot together and we’re accountable. I think we can handle that stuff internally with the players.”

How the Canucks handled prepping for the postseason is open to interpretation. They won seven of their last 12 games — including inspiring wins over Detroit and Chicago — and then forgot to show up against Anaheim and Edmonton.

They played the Sharks tough all season but never beat them, and never had an answer for a depth mismatch down the middle. Their adjustments were odd and it took until Game 4 to realize the chemistry of Ryan Kesler and Alex Burrows and Chris Higgins and Derek Roy should be exploited in an attempt to extend the season and blowing the zone to score off the rush wasn’t a bad idea.

But flip-flopping goalies and eight goals in four games simply weren’t going to cut it, and the coaching axe was going to finally fall.

“We had a team in the first round that we felt we should have beat,” said Bieksa. “A lot of people can bear the responsibility for that. I don’t want to get into details of the system we played, but we didn’t execute. I’m not going to sit here and blame one thing or the other. Last year, we weren’t sure what was going to happen with a first-round exit, and this year just solidified things.”

The Canucks had reason to question officiating in their Western Conference quarterfinal. Bieksa’s off-day rant before Game 4 that cited Logan Couture and Joe Thornton as embellishers to draw penalties shifted the focus of how much the Canucks were struggling in every aspect of the series.

It also shifted attention from how much Bieksa was struggling to compete. The blueliner missed seven games with a groin strain during the regular season and never fully recovered. Loathe to lean on the injury crutch or even discuss his own health challenges, Bieksa learned rest and recovery when you’re playing every other night sounds great, but was seldom achieved.

The NHL lockout followed by brief training camps saw a number of players beset by groin ailments. Some morphed into other concerns.

“It was a grind,” admitted Bieksa. “The first few months of the season, I felt great. There were some injury problems and whether you can attribute that to the lockout, I don’t think you can. Once you get injured or sustain some sort of setback, it’s really tough to get healthy because of how many games there are in a short time. That’s worked against me for sure. But everybody was in the same position. I don’t need excuses.”

Asked if he needs an offseason procedure after the Canucks revealed that Jordan Schroeder had shoulder surgery, Bieksa added: “I don’t think so.”

Bieksa turns 32 next month and is under contract for three more seasons at a $4.6 million US annual cap hit. He made the most of the lockout by organizing the highly successful Bieksa’s Buddies charity game as the Canucks pushed to support several local charities. He also organized ice time at UBC to push his peers in those informal skates that were great in theory, but not long on being the ultimate preparation. But in consideration of his family and those of his teammates, it was the best he could do under the circumstances.

“We could have changed a view things, but Vancouver is my home,” said Bieksa. “We set up shop like we normally do. I don’t think I would have done a whole lot differently — I was pretty happy.”

The main priority was to have full control of the farm team, the Chicago Wolves are run independently, so they care more about icing a competitive team of AHL vets than developing prospects. Now the Canucks own their own AHL team, have full control of player development and coaching staff and management for their AHL team.

Location is secondary concern, IMO its a wash anyways, having the AHL team closer to Vancouver would suck for AHL players there with crazy daily travel as all other AHL teams are back east and the Canucks' would be on the hook to subsidize travel for the visiting AHL teams, like how Abbotsford/Calgary Flames have to.
