Oh yeah. I was really impressed by JT's chip and chase. Man did he come up with the puck a lot, in space, with time, making plays. This guy is a smart player and a bonafide 1st liner.

Healthy Sutter > Birdbones
Nice to see Sutts bounce back with a strong game after that giveway in Edm. If Sutts can stay healthy and play like this, he'll be a nice option @ TDD. Either trade him for a king's ransom or keep him for a playoff run.

The Nite Overall:

- After getting no lucky bounces on the road, it seemed like everything went our way with our home opener and a big nite for the franchise with Cpt BoHo nite.

- I hope Bert had a chance to chat with Jake. I remember Tom Larsheid was hard on Bert cuz Bert was lazy at times. If Bert said something like: man, u have everything to be a great player in this league, but u gotta want it and u gotta bring it every nite. Something is wrong if a big skilled player doesn't get noticed on a nightly basis. I was lazy at times and it hurt my career, don't let the same happen to u. (basically what he said on 650).

- I found it kind of funny that Shorty made this big deal about Q.Hughes rushing back to check Kovalchuk. I watched the play closely and Kovalchuk just loses control of the puck. I know Shorty is watching from far away, has to make calls quick and prob doesn't have the luxury of replays. :P

- Interesting to hear Burkie say that he knew J.Thorton was going to get traded. He made some serious offers, but the Sharks beat him out. Boy, it would have been somthing to have Thorton here playing on that 2011 team. :shock:

- Jimothy Timoty was great with Petey + Brockstar. U heard it here first. :P

Greener should break up the lines and spread them out a bit. Maybe something like:

1) Miller-Petey-Boeser
http://canuckscorner.com/forums/posting ... 3&p=356933

The reason I wanted to see Miller with Petey is because he plays like a centre. He's good on the dot, he hustles back in the D zone and I think he sees the ice better than Ferkland, so I can see him setting up Petey and Brockstar. He'll take a lot of pressure off Petey too in faceoffs and covering in the D zone. Ferkland probably plays with more grit and he might be a good option with Petey on a expected chippy/physical game, but Miller is probably a better option most nites. JT is basically like BoHo, but maybe a better passer.

I remember watching a Nuck video with Greener's speech to all the guys b4 camp. I look at JT and I was like wow, this guy is really business like and dialed in. He looked like a guy acquired at TDD and he knows he's here to help win a cup. In his case, he's a guy acquired to help this team make the playoffs and possibly do something special here. (around :30 mark)

.Good confidence builder for the team, they needed it. Perfect case scenario LA playing the night before and looking it.
None the less, several Canucks had exceptional games. Quinn Hughes had somewhat of a breakout night and although he has much to learn about
playing in the NHL, he was rather freaking awesome. A blast from the point! Cool. Thought it may be just an anomaly on the goal but, golly, he
had another decent one later as well. Not like Stecher's one way back when. He actually had a decent game tonight as well, go figure. I was close
to putting him on a bus to a farm somewhere. Chris Tanev, the super hero. 79 more games like that and it's the finals, book it!

.Brandon Sutter may have had one of, if not his best game as a Canuck. Keep it up. Please. It numbs the pain. Kidding.
TJ Miller is fitting in admirably and IMO, has leadership qualities that will help this team. Guys got poise with and without the puck. Aint wearing
a letter as he is a newbie, here. That game savvy is invaluable. Ferland needs more time to even get a true read on what he will bring. You can't
lose almost 10 pound due to illness and be as good as you can be. I saw positives tonight that were not as prevalent as the previous two games.
Horvat was a wee bit off due, no doubt, to humbleitus. It's OK. All good. Gaudette was very good and fits in well. No problem with skill or effort.
Pete is getting there. Brock is getting there even slower. Come on guys. Don't over think the game. Don't listen to Newell. Just do your thing.

.Markstrom flip-flopped to his first victory of the season. Was more than adequate but it wouldn't surprise me to see
Demko get the next start. I think generally, the team, for the first time this year, bonded and generally, was more cohesive as a team.
Lob sided wins can sometimes have that effect. Just in the nick of time too, I might add, wouldn't want to get too far behind early in the season.

.Orland still looks pretty good mm? Naslund couldn't be there but sent a letter, (long note), directly to Bo which is
available in this PAYWALL, or not? article in the most recent Athletic; https://theathletic.com/1277467/2019/10 ... =twittered Sorry.

.All and all, a great night. One for the archives to be sure! Did I mention T.J. got four points? 8-) Quinn his 1st goal? 8-)
Now I'll ruin this little blurb with one tiny question; Where was Linden?...............Sorry.

Canucks are one of three teams with 100% on the PK.

Maybe those 3rd/4th line choices out of camp weren't so bad after all.
Birdbones with two and a half minutes more PK time vs the Kings than any other forward.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

The night before i watched this same group take it pretty good to the lames so not sure what was going down last night. Quick let in everything whereas Campbell had a much better game might be a reason. That said, canucks full value for the win.

Quinn Hughes best game in the NHL I'd say...he was everywhere. The skys the limit on this kid

I saw Jake asserting himself :shock: Is he finally over Bobby Farnhams fists? :lol:

The 2019 LA Kings remind me of the 2013-2017 Canucks.
