TIME FILLER;

over 25 minutes / warning, offensive hockey player language.
Gaudette playing, and Petey with some commentary and assistance.
Adam has a hot wife.
Bring the intensity to the ice and for Gaud's sake, put on some weight.

Some folks are saying Petey looks like Brad Pitt in this picture. I don't see it...... :lol:
Looks pretty pissed-off at whoever is to the right of him.
The light beard is a step in the right direction but I'd still ask him for ID.

Still it's good to see out Petey is growing up.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger
There will be a stable of officials designated to the North Division. There could be officials asked to cross the border to work games. They would have to quarantine. Teams will see the same officials a lot. Best of a tough situation.
@frank_seravalli how is the @nhl and @NHLPA
going to work with the NHL Officials is there is a Canadian Division? 25% of the officials work only the Canadian division and the other 75% rest of the league? Seems like the potential for overexposure to me

Canucks Training Camp Preview: Does Holtby or Demko start in net?
Iain MacIntyre
@imacSportsnet
December 28, 2020, 10:29 AM
Losing starting goalie Jacob Markstrom, veteran defenceman and leader Christopher Tanev, and first-line winger Tyler Toffoli to Canadian rivals reframed the conversation about the team’s short-term future.
Vancouver appeared to take a step back after steady improvement under coach Travis Green. The question: How far back? In some predictions, the Canucks are listed as low as sixth in the seven-team Canadian division. .. [mick :evil: edit}
But the regression, including in goal, may not be as significant as some think. Former Cup winner Braden Holtby and excellent prospect Thatcher Demko will form a goaltending tandem under crease guru Ian Clark, and the addition of defenceman Nate Schmidt from Vegas gives Vancouver its best top four on defence since the Canucks’ 2011 Stanley Cup Finals team was dismantled.
Until the arrival last season of the remarkable Hughes, who finished second to Cale Makar in Calder Trophy voting after being the first defenceman since Brian Leech in 1989 to lead NHL rookies in scoring, the renovation of Vancouver's defence lagged behind the improvements up front.

But the team is being forced to go young, or at least without experience, at the bottom of their defence this season.

After four years of development made more difficult by injuries, former fifth-overall draft pick Olli Juolevi, 22, looks finally ready for the NHL and is likely to be the team's fifth defenceman this season, replacing the departed Troy Stecher.

Whether veteran Jordie Benn, a frequent healthy scratch last season, is the sixth D-man remains to be seen. Benn will be on the roster but pushed in training camp by minor-leaguers Jalen Chatfield, 24, and Brogan Rafferty, 25, as well as former college star Jack Rathbone, 21, who chose to sign with the Canucks in July rather than return to Harvard.

That is a lot of NHL inexperience to incorporate on one blue line even if the top four is excellent with Hughes, Schmidt, Alexander Edler and Tyler Myers. If Benning makes another roster move before Jan. 13 – he can probably afford at least one when forward Micheal Ferland and his $3.5-million salary goes to the injured list -- expect it to be for a defenceman to help at the bottom of the lineup.
Where does Nils Hoglander fit?
It is not often that a 20-year-old, second-round pick who stands five-foot-eight is as great a wildcard as Hoglander will be at this training camp. The dynamic winger arrives halfway through an impressive season in Sweden and with opportunity screaming in Vancouver.

The loss of Toffoli to Montreal in free agency leaves a significant hole among the Canucks’ top-six forwards. The top candidate for promotion is Jake Virtanen. Re-signed after the Canucks shopped him unsuccessfully on the depressed trade market, the fastest skater on the team scored 18 goals last season and will get yet another chance near the top of the lineup. But the inconsistent winger showed poorly at training camp twice in one season in 2019-20, and the mercurial Hoglander drips offensive potential and could dislodge Virtanen from the right side of either Bo Horvat or Pettersson.

If the sturdy Swede is not quite ready for prime ice time, does Hoglander’s strength on the puck, mobility and potential allow him to play a depth role? Or does he become a focal point of the six-man taxi squad, which essentially extends the Canucks’ 23-man roster to 29 players this season? There are some dominoes wobbling around Hoglander.

It sure looks like Hoglander will get an audition for that top 6 winger job. Virtanen better have been training hard with Myers in surrey-on-the-lake.This is one of the interesting storylines this year...the other for me is Rathbone. Can the kid swoop in and scoop a job too?

Mobility from the defense has become Vancouver's identity and having another burner coming up the ranks will be a golden nugget in the pan

Washington Capitals agree to one-year deal with Zdeno Chara. Something like 795K. If he's in shape and still has the desire, not much risk.
Blasphemy to even think such a thing but how would he have looked in a Canuck uni for 1 shortened season. (obviously with playoffs). Image
