Re: Abby Game Talk - October 2021

To me, the reason Bowey never carved out a successful full-time career is because he's slow to process the game. Many highly touted prospects just can't process the pro game even though it looks like their physical skills should be enough. Guys like Cam Barker come to mind. Sounds like our Abby Canu...

Re: Abby Game Talk - October 2021

What did we get in return for Madden? I don't remember anymore. Anyway, he's not bad at this level but don't expect him to surface with the Kings anytime soon. One year of Tyler Toffoli :cry: Dumped Schaller Nothing :D But had to add a 2nd (I believe 51st overall that ended up in Detroit) :cry: Avo...

Re: Abby Game Talk - October 2021

Woo, Klimovich and the two goalies are the real prospects of course. Madden doesn't appear to have NHL upside, not at that size. He's a waterbug. Agree with the real prospects. No chance of Madden doing what Garland did, even if he gained 15lbs and got moved to the wing? Hard-pressed to see him eve...

Re: Abby Game Talk - October 2021

How are the centers? Are they even AHL level?

None of the 4 in the lineup inspire any confidence. I don't see Dries or Focht ever getting a sip of coffee in the city.

How's Madden playing? If he was still in our system, do you honestly think he would have a chance to make our squad eventually?

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

Team speed is a function of quick processing, right decisions, accurate and quick puck movement. The breakdown tonight was countless neutral zone turnovers and Buffalo transitions from mediocre forechecking and not getting pucks deep. Defensive play was poor due to 3 very borderline NHL defensemen b...

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

You see Green's "I don't know what I'm doing" face more and more often in between whistles.

Playing Dowling and Highmore over Pods at this point in the game is obscene.

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

Hunt to FLA for Juolevi.

Small, old journeyman Dman is bad on defence. Headline is too easy to write.

Are we done with all of Green's vets?

Best players aren't playing well but how do you make up for crappy defending like that?

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

Brad can Hunt for a new team as far as I'm concerned. He simply can't defend. Didn't see that we were back to even strength and got caught in no man's land. Green and his vets... all are proving worthless >5 games into the season. I know Juolevi was controversial, but I would have kept him over Hunt.

Fuck me, the Green 5-man box strategy rears its head again...

How many times do coaches have to tell professional hockey players "pucks in deep"?

Anyone missing Chased-off?

You see why Hunt has been a career journeyman.

Pettersson doesn't look very... enthused yet. Hope he breaks out soon.

Hunt went hunting in the neutral zone and missed. Okposo took advantage.

Well, well... Dowling got what he deserved.

QH with 29 minutes vs DET.

Probably never left the ice after they fell behind.

Dowling is the new Canucks' postman.

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 ba...

Re: Another one bites the dust

WMDs wasn't Powell's first rodeo.

Has anyone read his book about his time in Vietnam? Capt. Powell literally described how he was committing war crimes before Iraq.

The Tonkin incident was WMDs before WMDs and incubator babies.
