I haven't seen anyone suggesting a mid 70s "Broad Street Bullies", Flyer's line-up.SKYO wrote:LOL I know eh?Blob Mckenzie wrote:Lol a harder team to play against, more like a harder team to watch. The team has less grit and tenacity than any of the Gillis rosters. I honestly can't think of an NHL roster in event history that's softer than the Elmer Marshmallow crew.
Yet when the team or anyone in cyber world suggests trying to trade for a big power forward type player, it's automatic reply 'nope! that canuck player wouldn't fetch such a type.'
It is why it's imperative you, UDL, IN, Mickey and all the old school rock em sock em types HOPE this current team improves this season, so as this team can 'create' valued assets to deal for your beloved gritty/tenacity/size type players who have some skill.
We all are fans of the Canucks team through thick & thin, but we need to have some cohesive thoughts on how to improve the team besides the non-stop attacking of management & the relentless hatred on Sutter and Eriksson.
What's old school? Oh ya, a term from Slap Shot which was made in the 70s, I think referring to Eddie Shore or someone I know nothing about. Anyways, cohesive is a good word. One that I wouldn't use to depict our beloved
team the last few years. The message from management has deviated several times. By pointing that out, is debating not attacking.
I don't hate Eriksson but he's getting a lot of money, so is Sutter for what he really is.
Now this isn't the end of the world but in Eriksson's case, a slump is a slump but the guy needs to get his head together and lose the obvious depression problems that bring the whole team down.
Sutter needs to keep his mouth in check and work on his own game hence being a better veteran presence.
But I'll tell ya who knows. Bo knows! That kid, I mean man, has sent his share of messages.
After an interview, he pumps his fist and says YOUTH!.
And what did he do towards the end of the season? Dropped the gloves and showed yet another aspect of what a "team game", is all about in the NHL. I really don't think it was to show how much money he's worth. Just being a leader.
