Re: Advanced stats/ Moneypuck

In case anyone hasn't seen it, there is an interesting post by Dan the Stat Man over at Nucks Misconduct with a summary of "advanced stats" through the first quarter of the 2013 season.

Re: Press Conference (Today) at 12pm

The reason for this crap is that the media either does not ask pertinent questions, or, if asked and the question is not answered, they do not follow up and persist till the question is answered. Very poor showing by the media IMHO, and great job of obfuscation by MG. All the stuff that has been don...

Re: GDT: R1G4 Canucks @ Sharks 7:00 PM PST TSN

It is hard not to have an emotional response after that hockey game, particularly when I was sure the Canucks would win tonight. I also agree that the refs did not loose that game for the Canucks. They certainly made it harder for them to win, but there is no way anyone should be allowed to deflect ...

Re: GDT: R1G4 Canucks @ Sharks 7:00 PM PST TSN

I think the Canucks are going to win this one no matter who plays in net. Go Canucks!! Surely to god they can get themselves together to play 60 minutes of focused no screw up no dumb penalty hockey. I would have played Schneider in this game. If he is your goalie going forward, then live or die wit...

Re: Canucks Vs Sharks, Round I

HW, when the Dallas Stars announced the hiring of Jim Nill the only two other names that were tossed out as being considered were Ron Hextall who is an assistant in LA and Brian Burke. I don't know anything about Hextall's credentials to be a GM, and probably a lot of people won't know him from his ...

Re: Roster Questions

I won't answer the poll until after the Canucks are ousted. Mike Gillis is too much of a player's GM to consider trying to trade the Sedins or to buy out Luongo. My question is whether or not Canucks fans would put up with the Canucks tanking in order to get a couple of high draft picks because I th...

Re: Canucks Vs Sharks, Round I

HW, it will likely be the same as last year with Daniel Sedin. AV will no doubt say he was expecting on the basis of the medical reports that Schneider would be ready, and thus didn't have a plan for if he wouldn't be ready. MG pulls the same sort of garbage....I remember him saying that there was a...

Re: Cup Poll.

If the question was "Do you hope Vancouver will win the cup" you would likely have 100% Yes answers.

Re: Canucks @ Blues 5PM SNET-P, FS-SW

I didn't see or hear the game as I was flying and for some reason it was the Washington/Leafs game on Westjet TV, but I caught the Team 1040 after game comments on the car radio on the way home from the airport. I just read the scoring chance data over on Canucks Army, and must say I am very surpriz...

Re: GDT - Apr 10 - Van @ Cgy 6:30 SN pac

Yeah, Montreal got their good player by tanking and getting a top draft pick. I don’t think most Canucks’ fans would mind them tanking one year to get a top pick at some point in the future. Unfortunately from this point of view, with the goalie and defence they have, that is unlikely to happen whil...

Re: Curling

I guess everything is relative. There has been curling in Sweden since the late 1800s though the oldest curling club in Canada in Montreal dates to 1807. And Sweden didn't win its first Olympic winter games medals in curling till 1924, though its true that that's when they actually started :) So yea...

Re: GDT Mar 30 - Van @ Edm - 7:00 CBC

It is a plot. The Canucks help the Oilers get close to a playoff spot, then beat them in the last game of the season to knock them out. Or less likely as the Canucks are 8 points to the good in the race for a playoff spot the Oilers beat the Canucks and knock them out. This of course begs the questi...
