Where is the best place to learn about who’s getting offers for offers and stuff like that. Who’s interested and stuff


Twitter hands down. Follow Darren Dreger, Elliotte Friedman, Chris Johnston, etc etc.

Instagrams decent if you have the right accounts, but twitters the best place to stay up to date with news

Ok thank you. Unfortunately I don’t live in Canada so I don’t have tsn and insider trading. ESPN sucks for hockey

In general one big thing people forget for Matthews is the fact he is second in the league rn in goals per game at 5.9 which is .2 behind Ovie at 6.1. And Matthews is only 24 scream

Thats pretty good considering the next guy up is Stamkos. Thats some good company to be had


Considering the average forward peaks around 24-26, Matthews having a higher GF/G shouldn't be a surprise. It's amazing how Ovi's is that high given his age. It just shows how legendary his goal scoring is.

According to Sportsnet, Canucks have been receiving lots of calls on their players, bo horvat being the subject of the bulk of the calls.

I’m wondering at what point do they stop bandaid solutions and try another rebuild. They just had a failed one with amazing promise but it fell flat. They’ll never go anywhere with benning in the front office, and this franchise hasn’t been the same since the Sedins retired.


Well obviously Jim Benning has no choice but to hope the team turns themselves around. The next GM will have other decisions to make, and we’ll see what the Aquilini’s will be on board for.

Elliotte says he expects the Canucks to make move sooner rather than later.. and trade chatter entirely (the whole league) is picking up.

Here we go

Jom Bonning should've been fired at the end of last season.

Let's be real; the team has talent. Pettersson, Hughes, Boeser, Horvat, Miller, Demko and Garland are quality players. Podkolzin, Hoglander and DiPietro have great potential. But instead of giving the team a quality supporting cast, Benning hasn't created an optimal supporting cast for this team. Pearson, Dickinson, OEL, Myers, etc, aren't totally awful players, but they've given up futures of some of them and given them too much money in years when the real difference makers are going to need raisers.

Also Green is an inadequate coach. Dude was having his players do a crab walk or something at practice today. Need someone to get this team in line before they rip themselves apart and spend another 5 years rebuilding.

well if your a goalie and you are shutdown it gives you confidence. I don’t know what it does for the offense.

Team is an absolute mess right now. Aquilini needs to grow a pair and show these guys the door.

Bo Horvat went 7 straight games w/o a point before scoring a meaningless, garbage-time goal vs. PIT on Wednesday. VAN won only once during that stretch, getting outscored by 16 goals (by 19G if you include Wed night).

Pettersson has 1 point in his last 7 games. He's minus-7 during that stretch. He's been invisible offensively all season, except for a 3-point game vs. DAL on 11/7.

Boeser has gone 7 games w/o a point. Last season, he scored 23G in 56 games; a 34G pace over 82 games.

This team desperately needs a major shakeup. Yes, they're saddled with some terrible contracts. But, their stars are underperforming by epic proportions. Heads need to roll. This roster is certainly good enough to at least be in serious contention for the playoffs.

Yeah they're undoubtedly catering to the American tv audience with most businesses (non-retail) closed today. I don't get it, though. So many people are out shopping today for Black Friday. Should've scheduled a few of the afternoon games for tonight to balance things out.
