    Guess you guys can lock this thread now, eh?

    Just kidding... although I am glad my Flames won the series, it is truly a shame that one of these teams had to be eliminated, as it was a great series.

    Hopefully Calgary will be able to continue to play well and bring glory to us WestCans.... :)

    Although, as long as Toronto doesn't win the cup, I would be happy; we already see enough Maple Leaf stuff on the CBC, can you imagine if they WON??? Gah!!!

    Hehe. :) I'd totally bet with you again (say with my team, the Red Wings and the Flames), fing. That was fun last year, even if I did end up losing. ;) Unfortunately, I'm rarely logged in here, so a bet involving our sigs probably wouldn't be worth it.

    My team the Avs vs your team the Wings. The team that goes the farthest wins.

    We'll just bet this one for fun and bragging rights ;)

    Former Canucklehead GM Brian Burke was on Off the Record on TSN today talking about his career and specifically his tenure in Vancouver. Nothing much was said on there that hasn't already been discussed elsewhere in various news conferences. He fielded questions regarding his dismissal, Bertuzzi's suspension, the current CBA discussion, as well as his own interpersonal skills.

    Love Burke or hate him, you have to question the Canucks' decision to let Burke go. They have stated that he did a good job on the ice building an exciting team, he did a good job off the ice turning a money losing franchise into a money making one, and ownership also claimed that there were no personal conflicts with Burke which caused him to lose his job. So one has to wonder what exactly the reasons were that he was let go? He doesn't say, but he did indicate that there were a couple reasons which have been reported in the media which he thought were accurate.

    For more info follow this link which also has a link to the video of the complete interview if you missed it.

    All the Canuncks posters and flags are being replaced by Flames stuff... Personally, I still can't believe they actually made it this far... :eek: but I still hope they win against Tampa Bay in Game 6 :D

    Hi miranda, I like that first line in your sig - very inspirational. :D

    Well the Flambés are done and the Bolts are the champs. I actually watched the whole game seven today, and I've got to say I admire Calgary for how far they reached, because I sure don't know how they did it. They didn't even really start playing until the last 10 minutes of the third. They had a grand total of seven - yes seven shots in the first and second periods combined. You'd think they would have mustered a little more effort than that considering this was GAME SEVEN of the STANLEY CUP FINAL.

    Congradulations to Calgary for going as far as they did, beating three division winners on the way, and falling short only by one goal. And certainly congradulations to the Lightning who finished second overall in the regular season and triumphed in the playoffs. And they did it while playing hockey the way it was meant to be played, with speed, skill, and toughness.

    Cool, thanks Mike! :D

    So, now that the NHL has been "unlocked", what's everyone think of the current landscape? Will Naslund re-sign with the Canuckleheads and for how much? Do you think they should go after the other big name free agents like Forsburg, Niedermayer, or Kariya? Should they keep the Sedins, what should they do in goal? How many more games should Bertuzzi get if any?

    It's kinda nice to talk about actual hockey issues now, as opposed to CBA crap, don't you think?

    I was wondering wether there was a hockey thread in here or not. :p

    Well I gotta believe Naslund will be back but Iam not totally sure. [face_worried] Him and Forsberg are definitly pushing to be on the same team so getting both Nazzy and Peter would be insanely awesome for us but it will also cost around $6 mill. for each. So if we manage to land them, Iam thinking thats all the free agency action we will have and then simply re-sign the guys we had before.

    Kinda sucks we lost Malik to the Rangers. I just hope it wasn't because Nonis doesn't have his act together.

    Malik is a useful player, but I read that the Rangers offered him $2.5 million and I don't think the Canucks could match that considering they still have to sign Ohlund, Salo and Sopel.

    Latest rumour is that Naslund has agreed to a deal with Vancouver, and Pronger has been dealt to the Oilers likely taking them out of the Niedermayer sweepstakes.

    Yeah heard about Pronger and Naslund this morning, not bad. :D
    Now you'd think we would go after Forsberg now but we just have to wait and see.
    Having Naslund/Forsberg on the same team is gonna be like ten years ago when we had Bure/Mogliny. Man that was cool........till Bure got injured and knocked out of the regular season. :( :p

    I don't think the 'nucks have room to add another huge contract like Forsberg, plus early reports have Forsberg signing with the Flyers sometime today.

    With Vancouver losing another defenseman today (with the trade of Sopel) it looks like they're probably going to be in the market to deal for another blueliner.

    Forsberg's A Flyer

    Well there goes that.[face_frustrated]

    Niedermayer is now looking like the guy Nonis is gunning for with dropping Malik and Sopel but Iam also bias and a wishful thinker when it comes to my 'Nucks. :p

    Woohoo, the Canucks re-signed Morrison for 3 years, so the best line in the NHL remains intact!

    Rumour is that they are after unrestricted defenseman Roman Hamrlik, who's got some decent skill. That would be a pretty good top-four defense if they sign Ohlund and Salo to go with the already-signed Jovanovski.

    Now that Chicago has Khabibulin, they'll probably be shopping Thibault. I wonder what the chances are of Vancouver landing him?

    EDIT: Brad May just signed with Colorado, which is a little ironic since he's one of the players mentioned in Steve Moore's lawsuit for the attack against him.

    Ironic.............more like 'What The **** Are You Thinking May!?
    lol, this guy fights like half the team last season and now hes one of them.

    Hamrlik would be an interesting fit here. Hes not big and physical like the rest of our D-Men and he would be wicked on the powerplay.

    Even if they don't get Hamrlik I'd still like the Canucks to get another top four defenseman. I don't know that I'm comfortable with Bryan Allen as the fourth defenseman yet. He doesn't have the offensive skill, and while he's big and strong, I'm not sure he's quite picked up the pace of the NHL.

    It'd also sure be nice if the Canucks could address their goaltending. Cloutier's been a good regular season goalie for the past three years, but has yet to do much in the playoffs. The problem is there's not much available free agent-wise for the position. Cujo is probably the best one left and I don't think he's worth the price he'll demand. Oh well, maybe they'll pick up a sniper to play with the Sedins and try to outscore any problems in goal.
