Re: GDT: 06/12/18, Preds @ Canucks; 7pm, SNETP

Wait wasn't Bubbles the biggest Jake doubter ever... Well And I’ve also been a big booster for the last year and a half. But please don’t let that get in the way of your narrative Hey I can’t ride ya on this one as we all know I’ve been shitting turds on Virtanen more than once I was moved to post ...

Wait a sec...wouldn't a genius GM hire a coach who knew how to manage and control (and possibly even exploit for his own purposes) the NHL's position on extra-curricular violence ?

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Calgary’s Sportsnet 960 radio, launched a contest Monday morning asking listeners to “name the finishing move Matheson used on Patterson". Te-guruma, or in this case, more like "Hokkēsutikku-guruma". Or, if you prefer, as some do, to fit a name from the traditional syllabus to every technique, suku...

Re: Canucks @ Panthers 7:00 PM ET SN1, FS-F

Yes, EP is light but he took the hit just fine. He could be 30 pounds heavier and the throw down would've done the same or worse. I have a lot of experience and theoretical background regarding body slams. Yes, if EP had been 30 pounds heavier, the same throw down would have meant that EP had much ...

But given the number of stories out there, I could easily believe that this story is a shift from Aquilini's usual behaviour.
Maybe the Little Eagles are learning along with Elmer.

Re: Tracking the top Centre

Just thought that it should be publically stated that not only is Pettersson now the top centre on the Canucks. He is the greatest all time centre to ever play for the Canucks. Evidence is as follows: 1. He has the highest scoring percentage of all time among Canuck centres. 2. He has the best shot...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Easy now. Over the past 18 months I’ve been quite candid about my opinion on Edler....I’ve cooled off on the “ship him out of town” line as he is actually good in his role for the time and place that this team is in. Credit where it is due...yes you have far more rational about Edler for quite a wh...

Re: Goaltending

Ryan Miller had more solid game than those two Yes, 4 years ago, Ryan Miller was a better goalie. He was paid accordingly. As Blob points out, he's too old to do that now. Besides, as I suggest below, maybe the Canucks don't want him to. ...Markstrom...is not going to be the guy this team builds in...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Juolevi is already thriving in Utica, he'll come around quicker than anticipated. It's already too late for that. I'll be happy enough if he contributes effectively on the Canucks at all this season. Why is that too late? Just because he's a 5OA, spending a few games in the farm team is bad? For cr...

Re: Goaltending

Last season, Markstrom put up NHL average save% numbers behind that defence -- and sometimes even worse, when top defencemen were injured. To me, that suggests that he is actually slightly better than an average NHL goaltender. I'm with Blob: the bigger problem is on the blueline, not between the pi...

And by the way, isn't 10 lbs of muscle within 3 months too fast and too much?
I would have said so, but others might disagree. DHA ?

Speaking of Canucks hockey players adding muscle, did we ever hear at what weight Pettersson reported to training camp ?

Re: GDT 06-Oct-18: Canucks @ Flames 19:00 PST

If EP is already drawing comparisons to Sakic and Datsyuk....thats putting him in franchise center territory with a 6th(?) overall pick. Not bad. EP was drafted 5th. For real genius drafting, Sakic was drafted 15th, and Datsyuk was drafted 171st. Maybe Jimmy is maturing as a gm? Why cant that be a ...

I’ve finally accepted the fact that Virtanen is not top 6 material Yeahbut...hes finally found an angle to his game where he can actually be an nhl player and an asset. Until this year i havent seen anything from him indicating that he has a hope of being a regular Virt looks like a good 3rd liner ...

Definitely better than Penner! :lol:
Google translate thinks the English translation of Swedish Penner is "Penner"
