I doubt Green will mess with his scoring line. Even if it was a good idea, it's not his MO.
Horvat is going to the net but he's not driving to the net like we've seen in the past. Not as much, anyways.
Bo is just off to a slow start this year. He'll get over it.

Sure, but somewhere along the line it has to reflect on Bo? Hes never been your classic playmaking centre, plays more like s winger.

It’s in my opinion that’s his best winger is playing in Russia right now but unfortunately he’s two years away

Don’t mess with a good thing. I also like Hughes playing with the top line. Stack the deck. Green tried Hughes with Bo at the beginning of the year to give him some skill in the 5 man unit but we are better with Hughes playing with the top line

I am not worried about Bo. He is playing the right way, and will end up with his points.

I am not worried about the team, they had a crappy game, and lost 2 games because they are taking too many penalties. They will get over that. No reason to panic or shake things up. I would like to see Erickson riding the pine. His seat in the press box misses his ass.

Exactly - a month ago we were predicting the team to make the playoffs, wild card or some low seeding. Now we're upset because we lost a couple of games and aren't the top team in the west.

Erikkssonnn is not part of this future core and does nothing to improve the team. But I guess there are some advantages to being the highest paid player on a team. :/

I’m not complaining nor panicking, just fascinated by Bo’s 5 on 5 numbers. He needs proper wingers no doubt. Jake has zero of a possession game to be a top 6 winger, usually he does something stupid with the puck, hard to play with that. Gaudette is a Centre. They pretty much leaves you with Pearson, Leivo, Baertschi and Ferland and maybe Roussel who lets face it, they ain’t top 6 winger material. Like I said, Podkozlin seems to be our only true top 6 winger material in the system and he’s a long way off, maybe Hoglander, Madden, Lind, Lockwood can evolve into top 6 wingers but that won’t be known for a long while either. So it’s be patient, or make a trade

Teams are scouting the shit out vancouver since theyve dominated. You can see teams are far better prepared for us.

Bo and Boeser had a damn good year before Pettersson came...why not give it a look. I'd also look at stacking that 2nd lines effectiveness by playing Hughes with them. Give teams a different look and try and get Pettersson away from prime coverage.

You keep your #1 PP unit intact and loaded up.

Also Gaudette out / Eriksson still in.

Oh no, no. the tits I have around my garden are of the bush variety and let me tell you, they're unbelievably quick and work tremendously
well together. Have an extraordinary duration of usefulness as well. Not as much color as yours there, Per. see !!

Team misses Ferland's and Motte's relentless grit and energy, now replaced by the sissified players.

Why I vote to call up the menace Zack MacEwen, team could use a boost in energy out there, team is in a slump, lost some players to injury, and a zack attack boost could help, especially with top hitters Ferland and Motte out - Eriksson/Bart etc ain't providing that type of energy.

He's played great all last year, had a superb energetic preseason with the Canucks and is still playing well with Utica, young fella needs a chance to for some NHL time.

MacEwan isn’t exactly lighting it up, SKYO. Only 3 goals 4 assists in 12 games in the A

Same amount of points as Zadina in the A. Although Zadina has played 2 more games than MacEwan

There isn't even a timeline for Ferlunds return yet.

Or at least, I haven't seen one yet.
