Re: Canucks News n Notes 21-22

Also, typically PK personnel on a team consists of vets, and experienced players. They will have that advantage over our PP for a bit longer, as our younger guys get tuned to the league. For example, Edmonton's PP went from 23rd overall to 16th for the first 1-3 years of the McDavid/Draisaitl years...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 21-22

It feels like the next 2 games could go a long way to deciding the season The Canucks SHOULD win in Chicago, so if they at least get a point from the Kraken, well that is a 500 road trip. Pretty much all of us said that a 500 road trip to start this season would be a good start, so I guess, let's ho...

Re: GDT: Canucks vs Sabres>4pm>Oct.19/21>SPNET360

To be honest, Doyle, our “team defence” is as atrocious as it was last season, our forwards suck at it plain and simple. It’s not just “the defence”. Pettersson is turning out to be quite sucky at it and I think it’s safe to say that Horvat is no Bergeron or ROR. Your top 6 centre’s need to be more...

Re: GDT: Canucks vs Sabres>4pm>Oct.19/21>SPNET360

I always used to say to my friends here in Calgary that the "Flames are not the sum of their parts." Now, I think the Canucks are that. Put me on the fire Green bandwagon.

This team still sucks offensively, and if the talent on paper is to be believed then the coach is the problem.
Yeah, I was surprised to read that the players thought so highly of him after last season. He must run a country club atmosphere in the dressing room.

Re: GDT: Canucks vs Sabres>4pm>Oct.19/21>SPNET360

We need a whole lot better from Horvat, Pettersson and Miller, bottom line. For starters stop putting them all on separate lines. They don’t have the depth for three good lines. Load up the Lotto line, give Horvat Garland and Hoglander. Then put Dickinson in between Pearson and the Moscow Mule. It ...

At least Travis Green has used his time out, he's leaving it all on the ice tonight!

Can this team wake up yet? TBH, I was a bit surprised they brought Green back this summer. Not sure how much rope Green will still have after this game. Benning did his job this summer, did Green?

Re: GDT: Canucks vs Sabres>4pm>Oct.19/21>SPNET360

We're gonna have to keep those shots against down. Two more periods with that many is asking for it. Slip the shot counter $20? :D Actually we're on pace for 33 shots against, which would bring our shots-against average down . I just hope Micky forwarded an FYI email to Green during the intermission.

Re: GDT: Canucks vs Sabres>4pm>Oct.19/21>SPNET360

People were way too excited about Rathbone. I said he wasn't ready for 82 NHL games. So OEL and Hughes each playing YUGE minutes to protect the kid. Young Ds take time. At some point I'd hope he gets sent down to play big minutes and learn how to PK. But watch the fans start booking planes to fly b...

So, this is what scoring first feels like! I like it, better than cocaine.
