Krug is just dominating in this series, thats what we need , some offensive push from the backend, will make our wingers look a lot better

Hughes long term will be better than Krug.

I said about 3 months I believe it was March 1 , that I think Bruins have a good shot at winning the cup

Rask looks totally zoned in, much like Thomas in 2011.

Boston has the league in their pockets, if Krug was a Canuck he would be mediocre
- Makita

Very true. It's clear Gary wants the SJ vs Boston final. Not that I give a sh!t about who wins the cup now would have been nice if it was STL but it would also be great to see San Jose Parade the cup around on Boston ice. Would be a fitting end for Bettman and Campbell's favorite club.

I am pretty excited to see what the team will look like next year. I have a feeling some people will be surprised
- VANTEL

Good things are happening. Couple of nice additions next year and an RHD at the draft and we are on our way.

Similar to how they made all those changes on defense last year?

Hughes and OJ in, Edler and Tanev will be lucky to play 80 games total between the two of them.

Changes are abound my friend!

That is not change.
OJ? Really? We'll see and hopefully this coming season but I wouldn't count on after missing much of this season following surgery.

Showing his hand or bluffing, I sure hope it's the later.

I really hope Benning lets Edler walk. Yes he’s our best dman but Hughes will pick up his offensive contributions and someone else can pick up his defensive minutes against the other teams number one units.

not necessarily a bad thing. i don't see OJ playing all 82 so having options to slide him into top 4 situations throughout the season won't be a bad thing. same for hughes.

while, the fragile vets won't see the full season, we shouldn't expect or want the rookies/young d to see all 82 games playing substantial minutes.

while there may be changes, the defence won't be much improved in the short term. however, you put up with the mistakes to build the d corps over time.

those expecting change AND improvement are going to be disappointed.

I am not convinced he will be playing in Vancouver. Until he signs I am not putting him in on Rosterhawks card.

For those asking, #Canucks UFA update

Edler - Still lots of work to do.

Schenn - Don't believe talks have started yet.

I find it really funny that people are claiming league bias towards SJ. It's like they don't realize the hand pass miscall was a direct result of the pavelski cross check.

When they made the 5 min call against Vegas and everyone lost their minds and the league banned those refs for the rest of the playoffs, they told the remaining refs "Don't (frank)ing call it unless you see it" and what happened vs. St Louis? The sight lines were blocked and the refs didn't see it, so they didn't call it.

Bettman conspiracy theory’s are ridiculous, he has no bearing on outcomes and he works for all 31 owners.

According to Andy Strickland those four refs involved in the missed hand pass have been shut down for the rest of the playoffs also

I think he obviously has a preference as to who wins but I don't think he's actually pulling strings to make it happen
