White was pretty raw, basically only played in high school save for a handful of USHL games and the U18s.

Boeser already has a full season in the USHL and led the league in goals. I'm more worries about that college loophole than him busting.

Lol was just reading the so-called top 10 free agents from the score and they are hideous.

Scrubs will get paid big money and then disappear next year.
I hope JB doesn't do anything.

if we're staying true to the "get younger" movement then JB should in fact be doing nothing as you say. we'll see...

He still has to re sign a bunch of rfa's
hopefully that takes away any cap wiggle room so he won't do anything stupid....like, oh say, sign Brandon "plug" McMillan to anything remotely resembling a contract.

Is there a list of under 27 years old or so UFAs out there?

Lol Pratt "well, to say it doesn't make sense is an understatement, it's honesty one of the worst trades I've ever seen this organization make, and in the 40 years the Canucks have been around you may have never said it before, but the franchise actually looks worse after the draft then before"

While I disagree with the contract length, the money wasn't really that ludacris, at the time everyone was getting paid.

To put it on perspective Brandon Prust was given a 4 year/10m contract, and they're arguably the same player.


The guy did put up 25pts, played every with his heart on his sleeve every shift in every possible roll.

If he is bought out, he'll be a free agent.
Some team can offer him a 1 year deal at the league minimum and see how well of a fit he is.
Since he is still getting paid by LA, I'm sure he'll take it unless some other GM is willing to gamble and offer more than the league minimum.

Difference is that Brad Richards is/was still a top 6 forward; just not a $6.7M forward.

Mike Richards is nowhere close to that level at this point.

imo hes a tweener now, the partying has obviously had a bit of an effect on his body.

i kind of like that bieksa didnt get traded at the draft. imo the defense in fa is weak, so theres a chance the canucks can get more if a team fails with a fa, or at the trade deadline

Pratt is a tool, I don't understand why they brought him back.
Best part of my morning drive is when Aaron Ward comes on and rips him a new one.

Wasn't Pratt the one saying Gaborik is coming here or we are getting Shea Weber?

lol, they made me stop listening to sports radio in the morning.

Side note, we know we felt the draft as a fail, I forgot where I saw it but it seems like all the players or majority of them played really well in the ivan hlinka tournament last August.

I checked and Brock Boeser was second in scoring.

What we really need for local sports radio/TV is Onrait and O'Toole.

It's too bad there's no media outlet that has the money to outbid Fox Sports.


-having Onrait and O'Toole in Vancouver would be gold!

I'm on the road between 6:10 and 6:50, which means that I would be listening to the "Grapevine" for the majority of my commute, anyways.

The only time I'll tune in is when they have a guest like Marc Crawford or Liam Maguire on. Otherwise, I may as well be listening to a pop station.

Boeser was tied for 1st in scoring with 35 goals with 2 other players; he did it in the fewest number of games.
