Little trojan panninis on Milan's menu last night.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

He absorbed one from Milan last night, perfectly, then followed him for a bit, chatting him up.
He is extremely aware of what's happening and not leaving himself vulnerable to really get hurt.
He does use the hipcheck often but no one around here seems to notice.
He does lose some puck battles but rarely have I seen a guy so quick to strip it right back.
The one dark spot for him this year was he didn't expect what Martin did and was plenty embarrassed about it, still is.
I have noticed, 2 Canucks seem to get a lot of respect from opposing players.
Horvat and Stecher.

He's this season's Jared McCann.

Folks fall in love with runts with a 100' game.

If McCann had half of Stecher's work ethic, he would have been in Miami all season long. Stech has the skill set to play in the NHL, no question. It's his never quit attitude and passion to improve that earned him a stay this season, and will keep him in the league a long time.

Troy's diligence and character got him to the Canucks, and this is his greatest strength.

See: Bo.

Ya I think Stetcher is gonna do good things for us. But he does need to muscle up and learn to play a bit more like Biega. The bulldog can teach him a thing or two. I have to keep reminding myself that this is Stetcher's rookie year. He has warts on the D side for sure but he is a gamer.
The only HW the Canucks need

What a troll.

Most players are panninis on Looch's menu. Remember Hamhuis in 2011? Didn't hear you mocking him for that.
