The Van Provies: The Daniel Incident Ends the Season. And the Provies | The Province

Quote:
BEST CLARIFICATION

There is no rule against the Canucks talking to GM candidates on playoff teams. There seems to be a belief they have to wait for teams to finish their runs before they can be interviewed. But not only can they be interviewed, they can be hired.

Chuck Fletcher was hired in 2009 as Minny GM when he was still with Pittsuburgh during the playoffs.

Villie Leino didn't score a single goal this season and carries a 4.5m cap hit

Leino had such a fall from grace. I remember when everyone was just oozing for him as a UFA. But it's not like it's a novel story. Just this year, Clarkson has 5 goals and 6 assists and carries a cap hit of 5.25 mill.

Any sites to bet on NHL series winners for the playoffs? Most just have:

Odds to win the 2014 Stanley Cup

Odds to Win the 2014 Eastern Conference

Odds to Win the 2014 Western Conference

BCLC should.

I'm waiting for the obligatory 7seven endorsement before making any of my bets.

Trotz is gone from the Preds.

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=449305

If Torts is getting fired, I would mind switching up some letters and making it for Trotz!

Lol such a nice way to be fired, not necessarily terminated, just that the contract wasn't renewed. AND offered another position within the organization.

Depending what the position is, I'm sure Trotz will have no trouble finding a job anywhere else in the league.
Personally, I don't really wanna see him in Vancouver but that's just me.

Amazing that Trotz has been with the Preds since day 1, and even helped name the team back in 98'
That's almost as bad as Lindy Ruff getting axed. Ouch!

Canucks doing clean out day.

Highlights from what I remembered.

Daniel said he couldn't lift his head up. He was scared so he didn't move. He felt reassured that his fingers was moving. Left the hospital last night after some scans that showed it was nothing.

Henrik - Finger was a problem in faceoffs. Ribs was the problem for not going to the Olympics.

Bieksa - Believes in this team. Actually all of them do.

Kesler - Didn't demand trade. Love this city. Doesn't know if he needs a specific winger. Coachs/GM job.

Following up on the Byron-Sedin hit last night. There will be no further discipline from the NHL. Penalty on the ice was viewed enough.

plenty of Torts

Dal Colle or Ehler would be good picks in our range. We'd need some luck with Dal Colle dropping out of top 5, but there's usually a team that does the Patrick White special.

Mad props for Torts being honest and real

"Some of the core needs to change, its an evolution of a team, but there's some really good players that are the heart beat of the team that need to be surrounded"

Farhan: "Mike"............
Torts: "asshole"

Twitter was saying Ritchie or Virtanen.


Don't think Ehler would go that high??

I'm excited for tmrw lottery draft.

Trevor Linden...first time at this lottery draft as Canucks president...WINS 1st OVERALL PICK!!! I can only dream.

Virtanen is a good pick if we had the 12th/13th overall pick, might be even available at 15/16

No thanks to Ritchie... we need to go back to our roots of what we were successful at, skill, and speed, don't need anymore "project" power forwards

I think every canucks fans are traumatized by the Bruins defeat thinking we need to go for the biggest size.

we need MDC or Ehler <- Putting up Mackinnon & Drouin Numbers in the Q for a rookie

Ehler has an incredible shot and has speed that scouts haven't seen since Bure or Gaborik. Dude is quick and skilled. He's exactly what this team lacks in offensive prospects.

You'll likely hear a lot about Virtanen over the next few weeks because he's a local boy. A lot of scouts have him peg just outside of the top 10
