CanucksArmy Monday Mailbag: Noah Dobson, Goaltending and an Old Friend

What do you think of Noah Dobson? — Joshua (@JoshDoesStuff91) April 15, 2018 I’ve nothing but good things to say about Noah Dobson’s game. He’s a big, offensively inclined, minute-munching defenceman who can skate well (not well for his size, just well period) and take away space from the opposition with relative ease. Dobson has…

WWYDW: Cap Space!

The Canucks are going to have a lot of cap space this summer. I mean it when I say a lot of cap space, too. With the Sedins retirement, the Canucks are set to enter this summer with about $29-million with which to play. They’ve got a handful of restricted free agents in Jake Virtanen, Sven Baertschi,…

CanucksArmy Monday Mailbag:

I read the apt @TheAthleticVAN article/convo by @JasonBroughTSN and @mirtle (re: is Vancouver the old Leafs). How many more years of pain do you estimate we will have to endure? A little luck and some shrewd moves go a long way, but doubling down on Guddy, Sutter, and MDZ hurts — Kristo (@kristo_01) April 8,…

CanucksArmy Monday Mailbag: More Draft Talk, Max Domi and More Sedins!

3 most lopsided trades in the nhl in the past 2 years? — John Puck (@johnpuck1992) April 8, 2018 Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson, one-for-one. Jordan Eberle for Ryan Strome.

Henrik and Daniel Sedin are retiring https://t.co/efPMj75CzU — CanucksArmy (@CanucksArmy) April 2, 2018 Now the question shifts to what the Canucks should do this summer. It’s unlikely that the Canucks will…

CanucksArmy Monday Mailbag: The Sedins, Draft and Seattle Expansion

Sweet. With all this winning the canucks could be picking around 5th-9th or even higher who knows… Do you think this will be a good test for Benning and his scouting staff to grab an elite talent past the 5th overall pick? (Assuming everything goes bad in the lottery) — Ryan Little (@rLittle67) March 31,…
