so with Horvat out, I guess we don't have to make room for a rookie, since Shink and Jensen are both eligible for AHL

I guarantee that Edmonton will never even get a sniff before the majority of the team is blown up/leaves

that stat shot they showed during the game was rediculous.. 28th/29th/24th/27th/28th

the team plays so small, they have seemingly no system, you've got a bunch of "me" players, and no defense?

its like i said when i phoned in to 1040, it's totally not "just make it into the playoffs and see what happens" because teams in the West are far too good, and with the way other teams contracts are structured, these teams are going to be GOOD for a while..

so in the next 5 years, lay out 3 teams oilers are going to beat to get to a finals

SJ/ANA/LA/STL/CHI/COL?

lol, bye bye

For those that missed the game, here is a summary of Edmonton's defense:

Maybe they all just thought Burrows was really really good, like better than Sid good.

I personally think the Oilers should just stick to what they are good at:

no surprise, he really was invisible at yesterdays game when things got physical. At least he gets to play in the AHL.

I just hope Horvat isn't hurt that bad and just sore.

he looked a lot stronger this year then last year, playing in the A will be a huge benefit for him because he really seems like the type of kid will to anything to put on some extra weight so he will succeed in the nhl next or the year after

those were the only games they sold out... We really need the Canucks farm team here, I would go and I never went to a single heat game.

yeah but I think we've got another 5 years to go with the Utica contract

Would be awesome if the farm team was in Abbotsford...it makes so much sense, I can't remember why it didn't happen lol.

Because the heat wouldn't leave is the reason why it didn't happen

I believe it was that Vancouver had their farm team in Winnipeg, and it was a great relationship, so there was no need to move. Abbotsford established their partnership with Calgary in 2009, two years before the Winnipeg Jets came back and moved the Moose to Atlantic Canada. This made the Canucks temporarily have to use Chicago as a farm team for a couple years, before establishing a permanent partnership with Utica. They tried striking a deal with the Flames before choosing Utica, to see if the Flames would relinquish their rights with the Abbotsford market, however a deal couldn't be met. Finally, last year the Heat left Abbotsford due to losing way too much money on a annual basis, but the Canucks are locked into a long term contract with Utica now.

TLDR: Timing is everything

If you remove references to farm team, replace the team name with people and the word partnership with relationship you'd have a pretty good drama lol.

Sucks but maybe when that contract is over there's a chance. Who knows Canucks could still be wallowing in the Pacific Basement by then

The Flames/Heat were prepared to walk away were an agreement reached, however, the Canucks/Comets were demanding an agreement equivalent to that given to the Flames/Heat and Abbotsford would not offer it. The Flames/Heat deal was that the team would hit a specific earnings target each year, and were it to not hit that target, the city would pay the difference.

I actually prefer the Canucks keep their farm team back east unless the AHL creates a western/pacific division. All the other AHL teams are on the east coast, so travel would be horrible and result also in less practice time. The Canucks would have also had to subsidized and pay for the other visiting AHL team's travel expenses out west to play the Abby team, just like how the Flames had to.

The AHL is planning on more western teams within the next few years.

Here is some of it Selanne rips Boudreau in book | ProHockeyTalk

there was also mention that Selanne was contemplating signing with the Kings before deciding to retire. Which pissed off Ducks fans that he would sign with their cross town rivals rather than return to Ducks, then Jets fans were pissed he had no interest in finishing career where he started.

Hey now.. Kes played his heart out for the Canucks. Sure he has a chip on his shoulder, but he was still my favourite Canuck for a lot of years.

Who cares if he's a bit of a dick. A lot of successful people are!
