Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Cherry’s shtick was old years ago and he should have been put to pasture along with Bob Cole. His end has been coming. You could take his words a couple of ways - benign or malign - but it depends on how one interprets ‘you people’ it’s easy/lazy/convenient to draw a direct line towards xenophobia a...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Trade Stetcher when one of Juolevi, Rathbone or Woo are ready to be NHL regulars. I don't mind him on the roster - especially as a place-holder until the blueline system starts producing regulars. We're not there yet. Maybe in the off-season. Trade him now and watch the hockey gods wipe out half the...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

It was better when you could beat the shit out of guys and just get a penalty. Now it can alter a guys career ffs. No wonder 5'10 dmen are thriving in todays NHL Yeah it’s a different game for sure. I like the speed and skill but I miss the anger. I miss the rivalries and the physicality of years p...

I miss the green guys. They were brilliant.
Meh... they're like Duran Duran - they were a great show in their prime, and playing them back is nice and nostalgic but you wouldn't want to see them on a comeback tour. Some things are best left there.

Seeing Gudbranson and del Zotto on the ice together in Anaheim makes me realize how bad our defence was not so long ago.

I'm really hoping they dont do anything and just ride the suction pipe indefinitely...now that would be the best case ontario Can Canada stand two perennial tank teams? Then again, Edmonton and Toronto being in two different conferences would rob us of an intense turtle-derby punctuated by the iron...

Re: 22/10/19: Canucks vs Red Wings > 4:30pm > SN360

Only saw the highlights, but I noticed the player movement on the PP, with Pettersson switching into the bumper position on Horvat’s first goal. More than just switching alignment for the PP, I think the in-play switching and movement of players between positions in the 1-3-1 will be key for the uni...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I still think it was a questionable move to keep him up that year. Calgary must have looked like a helluva bad option for Benning to keep him in Vancouver.

I still think he has some upside once he grows up.

Re: GDT: Canucks at St. Blues Oct 17 5:00 PM Start

Dunno if the team would get the same result against the Cup champs if this happened in February, but this is a game people can point to when they say this year will be different. Definitely something they can build on - more so than the previous wins.

Schenn would be welcome back in Van I'd say. He played some solid minutes for us
I don't mind Schenn as a 7th D. Who knows about Fantenberg? Schenn showed enough last season to be capable. There are worse waiver options out there.

Surprised to see Baertschi there. Somebody will take a flyer on him or Goldobin.
