Not to bring this up again, but I wonder what sort of proposal, if any was discussed between Gillis and MacT.

The media "reported" (not sure I would call it reporting as much as starting a rumour), that if Gillis moved a goalie to the Oilers, he wanted the #1 pick, and a prospect.

Quote:
Darren Dreger reported on Saturday that he had heard Vancouver starter Cory Schneider was on the trade market, and that Edmonton was likely one of the teams interested:

Itís getting interesting. 2 sources say Corey Schneider is in play. 1st and a prospect part of asking price. Suspect Oilers in on talks.
Rumour: Edmonton Oilers pursuing Canucks goaltender Cory Schneider | Edmonton Journal

The Oilers are going no where. They don't have the d or the goalie to make the playoffs. MacT said he would take risks, but he hasn't done anything drastic yet.

I used to listen to Team 1040 in the mornings, but not anymore. They air the Mike Richards show before the Bro Jake and Pratt show now and that is just as bad, it's more tabloid TMZ style with very little sports knowledge. The Team 1040 morning block now has a bunch of clueless idiots with very little sports knowledge. I just listen to Team 1410 now for ESPN's Mike and Mike in the mornings for NFL and NCAA Football talk, won't be tuning back to Team 1040 in the mornings until they get rid of Bro Jake.

I hate Bro Jake and Pratt, I haven't listened once since they changed over. Seems like it's for a bunch of old dudes, and the things they say make me want to punch myself in the face. No thanks.

Reading a blog, talking about five unsustainable early-season trends in the west.
One of them is the mediocrity of the Canucks so far.

Is the following a fair assessment?

Quote:
Vancouver Canucks – Preparing to Escape Mediocrity

The Canucks first half dozen regular season games have been all over the map; with their evenly split 3-3 record hardly telling the story. Their rocky start has already seen them tally three 4-1 losses, a 6-2 thrashing of Edmonton and two late come from behind victories from two goal deficits where they persevered when it seemed they were down and out. Luongo has been fairweather to be generous, while Eddie Lack got a win in his debut, although it was far more attributed to his teammates bailing him out. The Sedins will start to catch fire soon enough, while one can only assume Ryan Kesler will come out of hiding sooner rather than later. Finally, the infusion of John Tortorella’s typically stingy defensive structure is still clearly a work in progress, which has clearly not quite been mastered yet by Vancouver. However, when it does, watch out. Tortorella’s system helped Henrik Lundqvist earn top goaltender in the world status, while his absence in New York has seen the dominant Swede be not-sp-dominant so far. Expect Vancouver to get themselves firmly entrenched into a playoff spot in the coming weeks and months.

You guys should have a dedicated "I hate listening to 1040, but I still do anyway, and will continue to complain" thread.

When you carpool and you're not driving, you don't really have much of a choice in what's playing unless you want to be the d-bag everyone in the car hates.

For whatever reason, this team never seems to play well in October. The only October we did well was Lui's first season here. I'm not worried at all at this point. We've been down this road before.

Flyers' GM Holmgren confirms that Pronger's NHL career is over. Philly's salary cap structure takes a hit as they still need to pay out for the remaining four years of Pronger's contract. Even if he retires, they still have a $4.9 million cap hit each year.

Holmgren: Pronger "is never going to play again"

From the article:

Because he was 35 at the time he signed the deal, the Flyers remain responsible for the entirety of the contract regardless of whether he plays or retires.

The Flyers have avoided Pronger's salary counting towards their salary cap obligations since he went down to injury through the use of the long-term injury replacement provision in the NHL's collective bargaining agreement.

However, should Pronger officially retire, the Flyers will be responsible for the full $4.9-plus million cap hit.

Still blows my mind how the NHL allowed the Flyers to keep Pronger on the IR for so long, when most knew his career was done

Cody Hodgson wants to make one thing clear: His dad didnít get involved

BY TONY GALLAGHER, THE PROVINCEOCTOBER 15, 2013

Cody Hodgson takes issue with the commonly held notion that interference by his father is what caused his relationship with the Vancouver Canucks to become strained and led to his trade to the Buffalo Sabres.
Photograph by: Wayne Cuddington, Ottawa Citizen
Cody Hodgson has always been extremely polite and easy to deal with since he came into the NHL, but when contacted this week about his excellent personal start to the season he really wanted to get something off his chest.

ďIíve been hearing all this stuff about my dad being involved with the team and making calls to the team and I wanted to tell everyone that my dad had nothing to do with it,Ē said Hodgson about his somewhat ill-fated time in Vancouver, when he was playing behind Henrik Sedin and a then-flying Ryan Kesler. ďThis isnít Pee Wee hockey where the dad can call up the coach and interfere with whatís going on. This is professional hockey and that sort of thing doesnít happen. He never called the team. You just canít do that. Thatís been bothering me for a long time and I want to clear that up. Iím not sure where all of that got started, but my agent (Ritch Winter) handled the stuff with the team.Ē

Thatís odd. Everyone was left with the clear implication that his father was almost the assistant GM here for a while, and the club never did anything to change anyoneís thinking in that regard.

ďAnd another thing: I never once asked for more ice time when I was in Vancouver, even though the media asked me every day if I thought I should be playing more. I was just happy to be playing in the NHL when I was there at that stage of my career. When you guys in the media would ask me, I told them then that I hadnít asked for more ice time. Thereís no way I was saying one thing to them and then going in behind closed doors and doing something else. I wouldnít ever do that. That just isnít me. Some day Iíll talk about my time in Vancouver, but not right now.Ē

For a guy whoís going to say a lot more about his time here down the road, he seemed to make a few points. And perhaps the point thatís been made loudest is how much this team now misses his presence, given that Zack Kassian hasnít exactly been Milan Lucic since he got here and the teamís search for a third-line centre is taking on the characteristics of the Flyersí enduring search for a goaltender. The list of stiffs who have been plugged into that role since he left is significant. It always starts with Sami Pahlsson and most certainly wonít end with Brad Richardson, whose offensive prowess is, shall we say... limited. And this prolonged search, coupled with the Hodgson trade itself, is certainly a crushing indictment of this teamís professional scouting staff which flat out hasnít been getting the job done.

Hodgson, who is starting into the first season of a new six-year deal that calls for $4.25 million US per season, is off to a pretty good start with the Sabres, but Mike Gillisís first-ever draft pick as the Canucks GM isnít taking much satisfaction from it, even though itís been much better than the stats show. Heís been the victim of a few great saves made by goaltenders and heís cranked that huge shot he has off posts a couple of times.

ďIíve had pretty good linemates (Tomas Vanek chief among them) and they certainly deserve a lot of credit but it doesnít matter much if weíre not winning,Ē he says of the still-winless Sabres. ďWeíve been falling behind early in games and itís been a whole series of little things every night that have added up to less offensive zone time. Our passing has been off, a whole bunch of little issues adding up. We had a great pre-season but that doesnít mean much now. Weíve got to find a way to get some more wins and get going.

ďPersonally I had a great summer (training with workout guru Gary Roberts) and I feel very strong and confident but as I say, itís wins that count in this league.Ē

And supposedly we should presume here that Codyís dad wonít be calling Sabres GM Darcy Regier to make suggestions.

i don't believe it one bit. he and his father, although not as bad as lindros and his father, are up there. he pulled crap like this in juniors too, as did his father. if they can get away with it there, they might as well try in the nhl.
