Interesting tidbit on Mogilny and how dumb it is to give the puck away every time you get it

http://canucksarmy.com/2016/10/13/du...tem-on-waivers

Quote:
[...] from an asset management or logistical view, placing Etem on waivers after a lacklustre pre-season seems like a decision that was solely based on a handful of games that really shouldn't mean anything [...] the Canucks traded former first round pick plus a 6th round pick to acquire Etem a few months ago. They were very high on his speed and skill-set and he fit perfectly into the age group that they have been assembling. He wasn't likely ever going to be able to secure a top 6 spot, but he was able to provide depth within the forward ranks.

In the end, the Canucks turned a hypothetical nothing in former first round pick Nicklas Jensen and a draft pick into a zero value situation.
is that bad?

Quote:
Losing Etem on waivers isn't something that should greatly concern Canucks fans, but it does shed light onto a few items that have been growing concerns.

The first being that there is too much emphasis placed on training camp and pre-season. Last season, that thought process cost the Canucks defenceman Frank Corrado. [...] This year, Etem was beat out in a handful of games for a spot by a player who is still unsigned, and was invited to training camp on a PTO.
i've mentioned this before, and it's the same thing they did with the playoff series against Calgary a couple years ago. they just haphazardly decide that some tiny sample is what really matters, and base all of their decisions on that. like how Nick Bonino just isn't a player you win with in the playoffs.

Quote:
Secondly, the Canucks have acquired a few players in the last couple of years, who they are quite high on at the time of their acquisition but came to the organization with obvious flaws. Adam Clendening, Linden Vey, and Emerson Etem all come to mind. These players become available, and the Canucks make the move to acquire their services, only to find concerns within their game, and they dispatch them.
yeah, for all the good people say about Benning's amateur scouting ability (literally his only good thing), his pro scouting ability is awful. has no ability to find a good player elsewhere, not surprising because he's looking for the wrong things. and i mean, he can't even watch his own team every day and see that guys like Dorsett & Sbisa are complete garbage. but yeah, he keeps dumping higher value assets on older mediocre prospects only to find out that they suck and acts all shocked. repeat.

i mean Gustav Forsling (who they gave away for Adam Clendening mentioned above) just played for the Blackhawks last night, and a slick 20yo PP dman is kinda exactly something the Canucks could use right now, but they just don't have the patience to do this right.

Quote:
[...] they could have gone about this a lot better. They could've waived Etem on Monday morning, amongst a bunch of other players, which would've likely allowed Etem to slip through and he would still be a part of organization.

However he was placed on waivers on Wednesday morning, with a few other players, thus making him a little more visible to be claimed.

This marks the second season in a row where the Canucks have lost an NHL-caliber player on waivers before their season began. Which given where the Canucks finished last season is a bit of a concern.
horrible team losing guys for nothing on waivers, while hanging on to older, worse, more expensive players ... is that bad?

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

ya that video is pretty grate

the rim around vs tape pass has been a thing with me for a long time now
drives me insane when a guy has time to make a play and he still just throws it around
winger has to dig the puck off the boards, and by then people are all over him, gg

also the playing to your strengths thing vs jamming a square peg into a round hole
Mogilny got such a **** deal here, that also upset me very much

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

and re: Matthews

it's still a little sad he didn't end up in Phoenix, could have legit saved the franchise there
similar to McBust going to Edmonton, instead of like Carolina or New Jersey
Edmonton & Toronto don't need players like that

although i guess it would have been a little funnier if the Jets won the lottery, and the league's 2 biggest stars for the next 15 years were stuck in Edmonton & Winnipeg of all ****in' places lol

doesn't say it there, but that Habs/Sabres game appears to be on SN360 as well
and check your local listings for a free Centre Ice preview, seems to be ongoing
(though some ppl are only getting it in SD!? wtf)

CBJ is my FREE MONEY lock o' the day with the Bumz missing Bergeron, Vatrano, McQuaid, Miller, and whoever else
i imagine that Torts can get the boys fired up for 1 game at least and take the home opener
