Re: GDT: Pre-season. Sept 20/18. LA @Canucks 7:00pm SN1

I think I'm hearing a "no" (with excuses) from SKYO too, then. brobro, chill cuz. The Canucks team is in heading the right direction overall, the team is slowly getting younger and rebuilding well, they have accumulated one of the best group of prospects in the NHL -> actually rated what top 2, top...

Re: GDT: Pre-season. Sept 20/18. LA @Canucks 7:00pm SN1

On another note, as much as I hate to say it - maybe IN is right about Virtanen becoming the next Torres If that's true, would you consider it a good return on a 6th overall draft pick? The reference case, Raffi Torres, was a 5th overall himself. Sad to say, when it comes to hockey IQ, Virtanen is ...

Re: GDT: Pre-season. Sept 20/18. LA @Canucks 7:00pm SN1

I want Demko up here this year. He was absolutely lights out in the playoffs last year. He went through an adjustment period entering the AHL from dominating NCAA and I think for him he is going to enter a bit shaky in to the NHL, not super strong but I think he adjust very fast. I think 2 years is...

Re: GDT: Pre-season. Sept 20/18. LA @Canucks 7:00pm SN1

Now if Hughes can come in to replace Hutton there SOON it'd be just perfect Facts, but for now it will be Edler on point on the powerplay until late March when Hughes likely signs if his team doesn't go all the way. On another note, as much as I hate to say it - maybe IN is right about Virtanen bec...

Joey Kenward: Based on morning skate, looks like @Canucks forward lines & D pairs may look like this vs LAK: Dahlen-Horvat-Boeser Baertschi-Pettersson-Goldobin Archibald-Beagle-Virtanen Schaller-Granlund-Motte Del Zotto-Biega Brisebois-Gudbranson Hutton-Tanev Markstrom Kulbakov Those top two lines....

Re: GDT (Pre) - Canucks host Flames - Sep 19 - 7pm -SN1

The four I'm hoping play well is Juolevi, Palmu, Gadjovich and Demko. The team needs a semi-capable dman to step up offensively for the powerplay, otherwise Brown will just throw Edler out there every powerplay again, I mean he's ok, but not elite and not all that creative like a Quinn Hughes will ...

Re: GDT(pre-season) 18/9/18 Oilers @Canucks 7:30 SN, SN1

Gagner’s skills were confident? What does that even mean? It means he didn't play like a timid little person out there, I watched the game last night and this morning in bits, Gagner made some good plays, I mean dude averages 40pts a season for a reason, not by fluke. https://i.imgur.com/on6qwST.jp...

Re: GDT(pre-season) 18/9/18 Oilers @Canucks 7:30 SN, SN1

Pettersson, Goldy, Baertschi this line was awesome, Pettersson continues to shine & keeps getting better as he adapts to the NHL. Honourable mention to: Gagner, Motte, Virtanen. JV was assertive all game and hit the crossbar, Gagner's skills were confident. Dahlen seemed a bit tentative this game, n...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Elliotte Friedman: on Jake Dotchin - -
From what I heard, it was extreme, he wasn’t just out of shape, he was extremely out of shape, we had heard he showed up with 25% body fat, that’s way too high for an NHLer

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Are we still concerned about NHL hockey 1970’s? I got news for you. Goon hockey is dead folks Toughness in today’s NHL now equates to compete level, playing in the dirty areas, board battle, forecheck hound, puck hound etc Yeah but if he can scrap - even better - ala Tom Wilson doing the dirty work...
