he’s nowhere near Markstrom at this point in his career and may never be.
Agreed. He might work hard and one day be but hes not there yet

I guess I'm the only one who can't handle the fake fan noise?
You know what I don't miss? The morons who stand up in the front row to wave at the camera.
Or pound on the glass. :scowl:

Cameras zooming in on hot babes with huge racks in tight clothing sitting behind the players bench standing up to wave at the camera and pounding their chests into the glass.

Yeah, that's what I miss most.
Fuckin' A.

They can pretend to put a man on the moon

... but they can't give us some of dat dere?

Fake fans with huge racks is something I could get on board with. :drink:
Aren't they called blow up dolls? Cheap on Amazon but made in China.
Each player was issued one upon hotel check-in. Jake's is still in the package. He fears his head will collapse when he inflates it. (see my prediction at the top of the thread).

Will players run out of mayonnaise jars or socks first while in the bubble?

A few comments:

Jets made the most of Canuck mistakes, Canucks didn't make anything of Jet mistakes.

Hellybunk had a much easier night than it looked. Canuck finish effort looked like preseason inter squad effort. Not a lot of dirty effort in the crease to help the shooters.

Lil' Trojan still is the Lil' Trojan

Pettersson didn't look like a Sedin drinking game

Markstrom played with Luongo's glove

Rookie D looked like a rookie D, some smart plays, nice breakout passes and just as many deer in headlights gaffs. He'll learn. Next season.

If Ferland and MacEwan have passed Jake on the depth chart, the Canucks are fucked. Neither of those two were very impressive.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Disappointing result, first half of the game they looked like world beaters, but glad to see Ferland finish a game apparently healthy and liked seeing Juolevi in the limited minutes he got. Guys like Sutter and Fantenberg are dead weight. Sutter @ $4.375 million and Eriksson @ $6 million battling it out for the 12/13 forward spot. Yikes.

They're not going to face a hot goalie every night and I still think they're a legit dark horse in the west.

In any case Virtanen should be a raging bull come the Wild games.

Sutter had a groin injury, so he's not 100%.

But liking Green's strategy.

Team should be much more upbeat next game, they seemed to get a bit deflated after the vezina trophy finalist kept shutting us out (until a gritty goal by Roussel), and they scored on Markstrom.

One wonders how much of a leash Green will have with Marky.
A long one. And Jacob has earned it. That said I think Demko should have gotten the 3rd period.

I know you are a Demko fan boy but he’s nowhere near Markstrom at this point in his career a̶n̶d̶ ̶m̶a̶y̶ ̶n̶e̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶b̶e̶.̶
Yeah but that Wild qualifier is pretty short best of 5, desperate times could call for desperate measures if Marky lets in some softies ruining momentum.

And Marky hasn't had a good series vs the Wild this season, getting outplayed by Stalock.

But for sure Marky will start.

Jake is just one of those dudes, it’s the regular song and dance at each training camp when it comes to Jake. He can’t help himself, he’s a hopeless case, not overly driven, just happy being

I'll have to ask Per how common the name Ek is in Sweden. I don't believe I have seen that one before, but it's a pretty good handle imo.
Not the most common, but not uncommon either. A search in the online phone directory gives 9524 hits, so roughly one in a thousand Swedes.

Ek means Oak, and nature names are quite common in Sweden. You also come across people called Alm (elm), Al (alder), Björk (birch), Bok (beech), En (juniper), Gran (spruce), Lind (limetree or linden), Lönn (maple), Pil (willow), etc, but for some reason I’ve never met anyone called Tall (pine).
Thanks Per. Adopting the names of trees makes sense imo.

:lol:

Magnificent!

Especially the ones with the huge racks. :blush:

(gotta dress 'em more provocatively though)

Yes, that would definitely help.

Then produce the audio from porn tapes and we just may be onto something here! :mex:
