    This is ridiculous, even by CDC standards. You can name Horvat captain and still be able to draft the BPA. I am confident that Benning will draft the type of character player that would be honoured to be an alternate captain. Besides, 'Generational Talent' is a term that is WAY overused.

    Wanted to post this since he takes a lot of heat here. Nice of him to start interacting with the fans and to see everyone is on the same page.

    It sure was nice of every team to send one player to say goodbye to the Sedins.

    People that actually get mad when the Canucks win is hilariously pathetic. I get that, at this point, a loss is probably better for the rebuild, but to actually get mad that the team you cheer for won a game?? Rethink your life.

    Anyone saying the Canucks are not significantly more entertaining and quicker than last season is simply ignorant. People ragging on Sutter who is quietly a significant plus player while seeing all key defensive match ups are being even more ignorant. Goldy and Virtanen showed why giving up on first round picks too soon can make you look like an idiot. I don't care what team you are in the NHL, you watch tonight's game and you lust over having Virtanen on your team. Hitting, speed and creating opportunities he was DOMINANT. Goldy was very creative and unlucky not get get three. What a fun game to watch.

Anyone who thinks they should have been traded is entitled to their opinion but crazy. These are now and will ever be two of the classiest athletes to have ever graced the ice in the NHL You earned it guys. Thanks for almost 2 decades of brilliant hockey

    Elias' team Växsjö just won the SHL playoffs, sweeping Skellefteå in the finals. Elias was named playoff MVP. I thought that this deserved a thread of its own. He is also the highest scoring under 20 player in Elitserien/SHL history (there are some familiar names on that list....) Article about Elias in one of Sweden's biggest newspapers: https://www.dn.se/sport/ishockey/han-kom-som-en-virvelvind-forkladd-till-talang/ I translated it really quick so there's probably a few major mistakes, but you'll understand most of it.

    Lifelong Blues fan here who just wants to pay tribute to the Sedins. They didn't just make the Vancouver Canucks better, they made the NHL better. In the long history of the league, few players have come along that combine the attributes of superior talent, sportsmanship, and class in the way the Sedins have done. During the Blues/Canucks rivalry I always had trouble balancing my (sports) hatred for them on the ice with my enormous respect for them for their on-ice talent and sportsmanship. When I learned of their off-ice character and philanthropic endeavors, I couldn't help but admire them and wish they were Blues. While I'm sure their off-ice charity work will continue because that's just who they are, I will miss their on-ice magic. I wish them the best in their retirement, I hope Canucks fans give them the farewell they deserve, and I look forward to seeing them go into the HHOF together in 5 years. And to Canucks fans - enjoy the memories, because players like the Sedins don't come around very often and they are 100% Vancouver Canucks!

    DALLAS — If heaven can wait, so can the Sedins’ retirement. Their Vancouver team may not win much anymore but Henrik and Daniel can still play. When they completed an 11-pass sequence that led to Friday’s only Canucks’ goal, Daniel Sedin recorded his 50th point of this NHL season. You know how many forwards he joined with 50 points? There were 82 others. That kind of production gets you on the second line of just about any team in the league, and the first line on many. That kind of production means you’re still really good at hockey. It was the same number as Matt Duchene, Evander Kane and Mike Hoffman. Whether these are the final games of the Sedins’ career or not, we promise you this: There is a lot of quality hockey left in those two brothers. It doesn’t always seem that way mostly because they are compared to what they once were. And what they once were was magnificent. People would have an entirely different perspective if the Sedins spent their best years averaging 50 points, like, say, Patric Hornqvist of the Pittsburgh Penguins. But, apparently, the Sedins are washed up while the 31-year-old Hornqvist and his 40 points just signed a five-year extension averaging $5.3 million a season. Perception is funny, huh? What happens next in their careers remains guesswork, but they don’t need to make their decision before the end of this season. Some are suggesting they owe it to fans and teammates to let everyone know, allowing for an end-of-year blowout sendoff. Some think the team should, or will, meet with the Sedins before the season ends, looking for closure to set that type of thing up — and sell a few more tickets, too. But what everyone should be doing is the opposite. As a city, we collectively owe them patience. They owe Vancouver nothing. They’ve given everything they have to the team and the community. Give them something back. Give them time and room to breathe. If they choose to retire in the off-season, they can come back next year and get ovations for days. It would be more satisfying then anyway to recall their careers than to do it now during all this losing and bleakness. Believe me, everyone will have their chance to say goodbye and it will be memorable and amazing. Plus, this is probably the worst point in the season for them to be making decisions. It’s a point Vancouver president Trevor Linden, who has been through it himself, raised before he had any idea how bad the team would become and how raw the emotions could be for two proud players experiencing unprecedented losing. In January, Linden said this on TSN 1040 AM: “They’ve earned the right to make the decision when they feel it’s right, and that’s likely a few weeks after the season when they’ve had some time to digest everything.” It’s interesting to go back to the lead up to the trade deadline and read comments from Linden and Vancouver GM Jim Benning about the Sedins. Both were complimentary of the Sedins and made clear they were open to them coming back. But no one with the Canucks has said: “We really want them back.” In fact, Thomas Vanek and his possible return generated more enthusiasm, even getting a nod from the Canucks that they would be willing to offer him a no-trade clause to return. Maybe it’s just an oversight, an assumption we all know how the organization feels about them. But it’s important to keep this in mind: It is the Canucks’ decision, too. They may conclude they need to move on to take a next step in their rebuild. This would manifest itself if the management were to tell the Sedins they expect them to have significantly reduced roles next season. The Sedins are already down to 12 even-strength minutes a game. If you tell them that’s going to be cut and they’d be off the power play, everyone knows they’re not going to sign off on that to return. It would be squeezing them out. Generally, 50 point players don’t leave the NHL behind. Linden held on for his final three seasons, averaging less than 12 minutes a night and fewer than 18 points. There’s no easy answer for what is best for the team. It’s complex and layered and it depends on the readiness of players who aren’t even on the team yet, like Elias Pettersson and Jonathan Dahlen. If the Sedins moving on makes room for those two playing big important minutes then, sure, it has merit. But if this is about more ice time and roster spots for players like Brendan Leipsic, Tyler Motte and Darren Archibald then it’s absurd. The Sedins are at the perfect point in their careers to benefit a rebuilding team. No one wants to see the Canucks comprised of players who are all 23 and younger. It makes sense to have veterans on short-term, cost-effective deals to make sure that doesn’t happen. The Sedins are set up to be used just like that, on a one-year deal. The Canucks have tried to bring in other free agents to play that role. The difference being the Sedins are actually really good. If they were to come back, it opens the door to shaking up some of the other veterans, trading players like, say, Sven Baertschi while exploring ways to move on from Loui Eriksson and even Brandon Sutter. Do the Canucks have the stomach to move on from some of the key players they brought in? They should. I thought this was a great article and agree with everything Botch has said about the Sedins. Going to be a sad day when they decide to hang up the skates.

    Canucks just beat the hottest team in the NHL. They did it with an emergency call rookie goalie. They did it with a patchwork D that is more like 1/2 Utica in reality. They did it without 2/3 their top line. They did it as a team. I don't care about the tank whiners and the doom and gloom "Canucks are not progressing crowd". This is a team that is showing progress. Goldy and Virtanen have come miles this year. Whine away tankers, just realize your seat on the bandwagon will be a crap one as those who are real fans are already on board.

    So, finally got a taste of what all the chatter is about with your Vancouver media and the Vancouver Canucks. Listening on-line this week I discovered a couple of interesting things and it was the present and former player that really underscored how your media is actually trolling its own fanbase. First, Todd Bertuzzi. What a beauty! Listened to over two hours of him in total and gems included (and these sooooo resonated with me): Brandon Sutter is so underappreciated in the Vancouver market. Absolutely worth his contract and does the job few others want to let alone can do. A key player to any successful team and a great guy to be around for the rebuild. Tanking - no professional player will do this and any fan who wants this for their team (losing) is essentially asking that current team to not be the professionals they are. Todd was so well-spoken on this issue in particular and nailed the player's perspective and made the whining tankers sound like, well, whining tankers - best quote was along lines of "I get how some fans may think tanking is a good idea or even a possible concept but then again some fans simply don't understand the game or professional sports in general - which is fine as they at paying us - but doesn't mean they understand the game". Well done Todd! He was also talking about the role that "luck" has in both individual and team success. This was quality radio and hearing this made me wonder, why complain about Vancouver media if you have guys like Bertuzzi when I then discovered he was guest host only. Second, Thomas Vanek. Another beauty. Great interview. Things along the lines of: "Yes, I know some don't see me as a playoff guy but then again, people see what they want to and real hockey people know what I can bring" "The Sedins? God, I was still learning from them. They are awesome leaders and players and more certainly still can play in the NHL." I was riding a wave of "wow, the Vancouver media has a player's perspective and is far better than advertised" when I then switched the internet feed to a 1040 station and a guy I remember from Toronto media, Dave Pratt. He was going on about how "bush Sutter is for saying he won't tank" or that "Canucks management just doesn't get it, tanking is the only option and to try and win games is silly" and other crap. He spent the hour or so I listened to his (what can generously be called) a "show" and it was him basically trolling the Canuck fanbase. I don't know why you Vancouver and BC types don't call your respective stations and tell them to turf the idiots and get more Bertuzzi, Vanek and similar. A player's perspective seems aligned with the more logical posts on CDC as well and seemed far more a "enjoy the ride, the team is going somewhere" versus the "conspiracy at NHL level, Canuck management useless etc. etc" that isn't coming seemingly from any actual sports knowledge other than trying to create controversy where there is none. This has been an interesting topic at times and I hadn't seen anything posted about the player's perspective that Vanek and Bertuzzi were bringing so thought this was a decent conversation starter. I pity those of you who have to listen to the Pratt on a regular basis.

    Come on dude, let people happily celebrate and reminisce over two players who are for all intents and purposes heroes in this market. I'm sure there are many people who feel similarly to you, and that's fine, but this is neither the time nor the place for it. There have been enough negatives this year. Don't try and create more when people just want to post happy memories about two of their favorite players. It only reflects badly on yourself.

    To all the various trolls saying this team has not progressed, that there is no youth movement and that there is no different playing style under Green than WD - "OPEN YOUR DAMN EYES". That third period was one of the top 10 NHL regular season periods I have ever watched. So much drama, so much speed and you could see the symbolic torch passed until O/T when the Sedins said to Virtanen/Horvat et al, "here hold our beer one last time". Gawd, I love corny storybook stuff like this. F'ing awesome!!!!

    This past two weeks, I went to 5 games....and, in remembering that it "could be" and then "was" to be the last of the twins I'd see, I had the good fortune to lap up every second. To absorb and appreciate it. And I am so grateful to have been able to do so, I will never forget this experience. Thank you, Danny & Hank, for creating this atmosphere and giving us something to cheer about right to the very end. We are so incredibly proud of the stamp you've put on this team city. And it shows in how others are now joining in to the celebration. #ThankYouSedins

    It is was with great respect and honour that I watched these two play some of their final games this past week. It is a sad day for all of us, but we can prop ourselves with some of the best memories and highlight clips of the entire hockey world. So many wonderful thoughts flood my mind when I hear: "The Sedins". That word (Sedin) should become the new term for greatness, class and integrity. From the bottom of my broken heart thanks, to both of them. It's been a great ride and they feel like family. So much for these two....can't imagine a team without them, but we're in the right place to give that a go I guess. It's never going to be a matter of replacing them, you can't. BIG skates to fill. But they have set the tone in how to do this gig. With dedication and a work ethic that is a never quit deal. Even in the face of adversity, they never turned away from it, despite childish nicknames that some used to disarm them. Their game never stooped to that level and I, for one, am damn proud of that. They didn't change who they were to address some of the crap thrown their way. Called sisters, you'd be hardpressed to see them miss a shift. Busted teeth? No problem. Tough guys aren't always the brawniest bullfrogs. Toughness can be measured in resilience and durability. The ability to be steadfast and sturdy. Not long ago there was discussion on sports radio about post game interviews and that, despite the outcome, two guys always waited behind, often in an already empty dressing room, to address the media. They never ducked out the back door. Some criticized their responses, however, they stood in there and gave them. Carried the baggage to the bus so others could simply board it. Thank you, Hank & Danny....your legacy will live on LONG after the on ice Sedinery is gone (sigh). I will never forget the stamp you put on this team. YOUR team. After Trevor, no others come to mind that can hold that candle for me in respect to leadership. And you two did us proud, for a very long time. With the utmost of respect, I thank them both and wish them the brightest of futures with their families.

    Wow, just read 8 pages of comments now and only one poster talked about the improved play of Goldie. Tonight was one of his best games as a Canuck and you can just see how much talent he has. He is so good at seeing the play and changing the pace, and making great passes. And now he is skating harder, and making some very good defensive plays, especially with the stick. He seems so much more committed. If Green keeps developing him like this, I love his upside.

    Travis Green has said the D needs to be better next year and I doubt if anyone would disagree. We can hope that Tanev and Guddy are healthier, we hope the Canucks win the lottery and draft Dahlin, and we can hope that younger guys come back better and ready to play at an NHL level (Juolevi, Hutton, Stecher, Pouliot). And there is always the possibility of a trade or UFA pick-up. While we are waiting for any of those things to happen, I think it is interesting to take a careful look at the advanced (and not-so-advanced) stats at CORSICA and Natural Stat Trick to pick out what I think are some interesting and/or important numbers in assessing the D. There are no big surprises, but here are some interesting points. 1. Scoring. Travis Green has complained (rightly) about the lack of scoring from the D. And we can easily see the scoring numbers from this year. (Edler led with 34 pts and MDZ and Pouliot both had 22). But of course guys who play more, especially on the PP, will get more points. So I looked at points per 60 minutes played at even strength. The leader was still Edler (no surprise) at 0.88. Second spot is a surprise. It goes to Tanev at .8. He only had 11 pts but he only played in 42 games and had basically no PP time. Third place went to the Biega at 0.78 -- also a surprise. At the other end, Guddy was low, as we expect, at 0.37 but he was not the lowest. Hutton had an abysmal number of 0.19. Using round numbers, to be a legitimate "offensive D-man" you should be at least at 1.0 or better on this stat. Edler is not too far away but, obviously, the Canucks do not have a legitimate offensive D-man. And MDZ and Pouliot are not as good as we might think. Correcting for time on ice and PP opportunities they are both well behind Tanev and Biega! I am not sure where improved scoring on the D will come from next year. Let's hope we win the lottery and draft Dahlin. Or can Pettersson play D? 2. Hits and Blocked Shots. Turning to defensive play, we expect D's to make hits and block shots. Most people probably know that MDZ led the team in hits, but if we look at hits per 60 minutes, the leader is Biega, by a pretty big margin at 11.4. MDZ is next at 9.7, then Guddy at 8.4 and Edler at 6.4. Frankly, I think we should expect more out of Guddy given his skill set, but I assume his shoulder injury was a problem. On the low end, Tanev was at 1.7 -- but he is a guy we don't want making hits given his defensive value and all the punishment he takes anyway. Hutton was also very low at 2.5 -- much too low for his role on the team. As for blocked shots, Edler has a comfortable lead at 7.4 per 60 minutes followed, interestingly, by Pouliot at 6.2 then Tanev at 5.2. Low guys are Stecher (3.0) and Hutton (3.4). As has often been pointed out, blocked shots is a hard stat to interpret because you only block shots when you don't have the puck. If you control the puck a lot, your blocked shots go down. On the other hand, if you don't have the puck it is better to block a shot than to not block a shot. Anyway, not much going on with this stat. 3. Quality of Opposition. The main job of the D is keep the other team from scoring and turning the puck around to go the other way. How do we measure that? We can use plus/minus, corsi, or other shot metrics but there is a lot of controversy over how to do it. A big issue is quality of opposition. If you are out there against McDavid or MacKinnon you are going to give up more goals and more shots than a D pairing that is usually up against no-name 4th liners, or even against pretty good 3rd liners. But there is no good way of adjusting for quality of competition. There are some metrics, but they are generally very poor. Using Corsi numbers to assess quality of competition is particularly bad. However, I think the best simple metric is time on ice as calculated by CORSICA. I used time on ice based on all situations (not just even strength), which I think is the best measure. The idea here is to measure the quality of the players you are up against by looking at their share of time on ice in a given game, as the better players generally play more. There is generally a big difference in quality between forwards who play, say, 20 minutes a game (first liners) and those who play 10 minutes a game (4th liners). I won't report the numbers here but will state the rankings. Edler has toughest quality of competition, followed closely by Tanev. There is a bit of a gap, then comes Guddy, MDZ, Stecher, and Hutton in the middle group. Pouliot and Biega faced relatively easy quality of competition. Zone starts also matter. For any given quality of competition, you are more likely to give up a goal or a shot if you start in the D-zone and more likely to be on the ice for a goal or shot if you start in the O-zone. Pouliot is the big beneficiary here with 57% O-zone starts. Tanev had the toughest starts with only 42% O-zone starts. Guddy and Edler also had a preponderance of D-zone starts at even strength. The others were fairly close to 50-50. One surprising fact is that, despite his tough starts and high quality of competition, Tanev led the D in even-strength plus minus and was actually in positive territory despite playing shutdown on a bad team. That is unusual and impressive. 4. Plus-minus and shot metrics. There are lots of arguments against plus/minus. The most important is that it does not adjust for quality of competition. Also, there is a lot of luck in +/- (i.e. a lot of variance) in a small sample, or even over a full year, so +/- is not very stable from year to year. That indicates that it is a noisy measure of performance. Shot metrics are more stable and are therefore better predictors of future performance. There are a lot of adjustments that could made to corsi numbers, including score adjustments (teams attempt more shots when they are behind), and not all shot attempts are equal. The shot metric that I like is "High Danger Corsi For". This is based on shot attempts from high danger areas.The leader on the Canuck D is on this metric is Alex Biega! Low man is Gudbranson. This is partly explained by quality of competition and zone starts but, even so, Biega's numbers are surprisingly good and Guddy's are disappointing. 5. One more stat. One more stat that I find interesting is takeaways per 60 min. The leader on this is Pouliot at 1.2, followed by Stecher and Edler at 1.1. Guddy is low man at 0.3. 6. Special Teams: The above is all for even-strength. I won't cover PK and PP but I will note that Edler is clearly the team leader on special teams. Conclusions: Using stats to evaluate D-men is hard, but so is the "eye-test" given the high level of confirmation bias that most people have (seeing what they expect to see or want to see). On the basis of stats there are some warning signs: 1. Edler is far and away the most valuable D. At least he was last year. Calls to "trade Edler" only make sense if the objective is to tank next year. 2. There is not much evidence from last year that Pouliot is a legitimate NHL D. Given his favorable zone starts and relatively easy quality of competition, his +/- (-22 overall) can only be described as dismal. With that level of play it is hard to see how he is even in the NHL. There is a reason Pittsburgh traded him for an AHL player. At age 24, he might still improve, but the years when players normally improve a lot are behind him. 3. Hutton had a bad year. Period. Claims that "advanced stats" tell a different story are not right. At least it takes a lot of cherry-picking to make Hutton look good. (He was pretty good on the PK, but that was against 2nd unit PPs was a pretty small sample.) 4. Guddy did not have a good season. His strengths (physical game, PK) were not as strong as they should be and his weaknesses are real (no offense, gets hemmed in his own zone). We can hope that he will be better if he comes back healthy next year. 5. MDZ is a journeyman. He makes hits, plays hard, and provides some offence. But his defence is poor. With roughly average zone starts and quality of competition, his corsi for and high danger corsi for percentages (both 46%) are not good. And his scoring per 60 minutes is not as good as we might have expected. 6. Tanev is excellent defensively, but obviously his health is an issue and he contributes very little to the physical game. He also is nowhere near being a legitimate offensive D-man but still finished second on the team in even strength points per 60 minutes. A classic example of "good news for Tanev, bad news for the team". 7. I want to say good things about Stecher but, realistically, it is hard to say more than he is "ok". On the plus side he did well playing shutdown with Edler in the last month of the season. 8. Statistsically, a surprising bright spot is Biega. On the numbers he is a better D than Pouliot or Hutton and competitive with MDZ and Stecher. But if a long run NHL-AHL tweener is your bright spot, well, as Green says, improvement is needed. 9. Trade potential: If the Canucks try to trade one of the current D's we should be very, very restrained in our expectations of what we could get in return. Tanev's injuries are a red flag, Hutton and Pouliot are projects, MDZ and Guddy have high cap hits for what they do. And I don't see a big market for Stecher or Biega. Overall, we will have one good pairing (Edler and Tanev) that would be great as a second pairing but not ideal as a first pairing, several guys who would be fine in a third pairing, a good 7th man (Biega), and lot of question marks regarding the second pairing. But we should get one or two good D prospects (and some longshots) in this year's draft, and maybe Tryamkin comes back.

    Didn't say it was. But you're in here being a belligerent prick when the majority of people are trying to celebrate the careers of two players they like. If you can't understand why this isn't the time or the place, then I'm assuming that you're looking to provoke people. Which is a shame. Maybe it's hard for you to understand, but people form pretty serious sentimental attachments to athletes that they follow for a long time. Why don't you want people to be able to just be happy and nostalgic for a while? Are you that miserable?
