Re: GDT: Oct 29: Canucks host Washington - 7pm - CBC

Tonight's game is an example of how the Canucks play when they score first and when they have the lead. They are a different team when those things don't happen. They had to score 5 to get the win which is the one downfall but no complaints. Their defence is better when Hamhuis is paired with bieks...

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts + Turris Rumours

Angry and Mean and hungover from the Devils Sauce. I don't need any happy, smiley, flakey bible thumpers on my team. They win ya nothing. Out of curiosity, In YOUR opinion how many of these angry, mean, hungover players exist on a Stanley cup team nowadays? Excluding the minors, or players bought o...

Re: This team needs more Scandinavians!

Guess what it really boils down to is that this team needs secondary scoring! And badly so! :evil: So far there are only six players with at least five points: Daniel 12 Hank 11 Salo 7 Edler 6 Higgs 5 Burr 5 CoHo and Manny (and Samuelsson) have 3 and the rest even less. We cannot afford to be a one ...

Re: This team needs more Scandinavians!

Hmm, and even more compelling trend is that the following 14 skaters have 51 points: Henrik, Daniel, Higgins, Burrows, Hodgson, Samuelsson, Malhotra, Hansen, Kesler, Lapierre, Weise, Ebbett, Booth, Volpatti.. whereas these eight players have just sixteen points: Salo, Edler, Ballard, Hamhuis, Bieks...

Re: This team needs more Scandinavians!

Per, It seems many of these so called Scandinavians are in fact Candanadians. What is with the Vikings and the Chinese coming to Canada to have babies? Can't speak for the Chinese, but it seems there is a lack of good hockey players in Canada*, so they bring over as many as they can from Sweden and...

Re: This team needs more Scandinavians!

I'd also love to see Alex Sundström in a Canucks uniform, but alas - his knee injury seems to have prevented him from reaching his full potential. :( Alexander Sundström was considered to be at least as talented as his dad as a junior, and half a year before the draft he was ranked fifth among Euro...

This team needs more Scandinavians!

OK, I'm being a bit tongue in cheek here, in a response to the call that always pops up now and again that we need more Canadian players. But still. Six Scandinavian Canucks (Dan, Hank, Sami, Edler, Sammy, Hansen) have so far racked up 41 points, or 6.8 per player. Two French-Canadian Canucks (Burro...

Will the call on the field stand? Was this a good trade? OR, will the referee's verdict be overturned by taking a closer look.
Had a look over at calpuke, they absolutely hate this trade :lol: :lol:
Then it must be good! 8-)

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts

Lol! Is anyone surprised? Marco Sturm? :D Samuelsson (interviewed by Aftonbladet): "It's a bit of a surprise, but I'm not complaining. The weather is definitely better there and the Panthers have an interesting team, so I'm sure it will be fine." "I've had two fantastic years in Vancouver and it's ...
