Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

Very deflating hit from Reeves. Canucks need to capitalize but even if they don’t I think this is a potential turning point

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

At what point is it not an overreaction to join the #KeepDemko movement? :lol:

All kidding aside these 3 games have been unbelievable. As amazing as Markstrom has been, you have to think this is making management think.

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

Um... wow. Best save in recent memory. Am liking Boeser’s game lately. Not much more you could have asked for there. Just an unreal effort from Lehner.

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

It’s hard to remember a time I have seen the Canucks so thoroughly dominated. Vegas has definitely mastered shutting down the Canucks.... I’ve never been a big believer in their team but the way they can completely suffocate the Canucks is impressive. Here’s hoping the Canucks can pick up the pace a...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Not surprised to see the usual suspects completely derailing this thread. Would expect nothing less. What a sad way to spend your time. On another note pretty impressed by the way 1040 has been handling the situation and outpouring of support from the callers. Regardless of what you thought of Botch...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

We gripe often about the media and indeed Botchford had a distinct style which many found grating, others entertaining, but any way you slice it this is tragic news. Way too young and seemed to be in good shape. Just reminds you of the frailty of life. Like many I didn’t always agree with his opinio...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

Flames in 5 - Avs are a mystery. Top line has faded from a dominant start. Question Rantanens status. Sharks in 6 - Don’t trust the Knights this year Preds in 7 - Preds and Jets have really underwhelmed this year. Don’t trust the Preds but don’t think the Stars have enough depth Jets in 6 - It’s the...

Re: GDT: April 6/19 Canucks @ Blues 1:00pm

Did Schaller manager to block Hughes first career goal? Still waiting to see the replay on that one. That would be mighty impressive! Just when you thought he couldn’t suck more! :lol:

Re: The 2017 NHL Entry Draft

It also speaks to a great deal of patience (or in Benning's case, confidence in his job security), since it's hard to see how this kid could be ready for the NHL in less than two years. Might seem like a great pick in 2020, but doesn't really work with Doc's timeline . Pettersson and Dahlen will jo...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Doubt the Leaves want picks/prospects for Nylander, they want to contend now. Agreed but we don’t have anything to offer there either! :lol: Like others have said, the Canucks should stay clear of Nylander. He’s a good player but the only scenario in which they should pursue him is if they could ge...

Re: Canuck predictions for 2018/19 season

I haven’t changed my mind based on the preseason. I have the Canucks finishing somewhere in the 70-80 point range assuming key players remain healthy. If we see any significant injuries then we plummet to cellar dwellers. Our defence is just abjectly terrible. Edler and Tanev are the only genuine to...

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

I am not as worried about injuries this year as past years.. for the first time in my memory, we have organizational depth, and this years depthnis better than Megna, Gaunce and Chaput of the last few years.. So long as Horvat and Boeser are healthy all year, we challenge for a playoff spot. Not sa...

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

I foresee a very similar year and expect at least a couple of significant injuries to key players. My guess is somewhere between 70 to 80 points. If the injuries pile up, they could challenge for bottom of the league but otherwise I think we’ll be somewhere in that 5-10 range come draft time (well w...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Edler was never as bad as the hyperbole vomited on this board. But he did peak and decline. But he has declined to a pretty good spot; he was quite good last year and was not bad the two years before. He has, however, carried a sizable burden, and that's where many of the warts show. But is a stron...

Re: The Sedins - a quiz, and other stuff.

I was so sure Cowan would have been on that list! Me too! I tried multiple times to no avail. I got stuck at 40. My favourite moment was missing Eriksson :lol: Most embarrassing miss was Vanek.
