      Did he block a shot?

      Nope, hit from behind last game. Slow-mo replay showed his right knee bounce off the boards really hard.

    4. 6string


      Back for the playoffs!

  3. Who is this Ted guy and why does he talk so much?

  4. Hypothetical question:


    Josh Leivo is in his contract year pacing 43 points. Do you give him $3M or let him walk?

      I think we'd have a riot on our hands, and maybe a mutiny from Petey, if they moved Boeser. I think they'd demand a 1st or maybe even Podkolzin.

      your probably right jimmy, but i’m just saying imo zucker would be the best winger for bo. 

    4. J-Dizzle


      Zucker would be great but expensive... wonder what the cost would be on a guy like Bailey or maybe Connolly?

  5. I thought the Canucks were gonna wear the flying V for the game? 

    80s night with skate jerseys? Lol

    1. Chickenspear


      Well, the skate was intro'd in '85, and the "V" is butt #*$&ing ugly. Just my assumption.

    2. Baer.


      I guess. Just kinda surprised when I went to see the highlights and they weren't wearing the flying V. What's the point of even making the jerseys if you aren't going to play in them



      Oh yeah that's right. Money.

  6. Leaf sucker trucks...right outside my 7am on Saturday....they are just leaves!! More noise than the garbage trucks!

      had the same thing happen a few weeks ago, it was a few streets over and it was so loud it woke me up at around 7 AM.

      No thanks.  Listening to grape's rants sounds about as much fun as someones nails scraped across  a chalkboard...

    3. 6string


      Tuned him out a long time ago but he has a following so good on him.

    4. BrockBoester


      I think it should have been called "Cherries of Wrath"

  8. Sergei Shirokov, haven't heard that name in a while:



    1. goalie13


      I hate it when highlights like this show up.  Guaranteed someone tries this on me next time I'm on the ice.  Even my own guys, in warmup.  ::D

    2. Pears


      I still remember when this guy scored his first goal then got sent down right after

    3. Coconuts


      Ahh yes, Shirokov, the player who looked like he might be able to contribute but was immediately demoted. 

  9. How the hell is Tim Peel still employed? He's dumber than a pile of bricks.

      Kelly Sutherland is still employed by the NHL as a ref.


      Do I need really to say more?

    3. BrockBoester


      Bettman still finds him easy to brainwash and manipulate via remote neurological implants I assume

    4. Bell


      I don't ever recall a game well officiated by this guy.  That hook on Pettersson last night was one of the most flagrant demonstrations of his complete incompetence.  When Pettersson hit Hall later in the game I figured he was getting five and a game, then couldn't help laugh he calls Hall for diving.  I think this guy may actually rig these games.

  10. Fun fact: Nils Hoglander is teammates with another former Canucks draft pick... Taylor Matson 6th round in 2007.

      I'm sure there are dozens of equally awful first round picks.

      @Tortorella's Rant The return of Brad Lukowich and Christian Ehrhoff made that one easier to swallow. For me it was Nathan Smith.followed by RJ Umberger. After getting Bryan Allen and the Sedins the 2 years before, they NEEDED to load up on young talent after the 90's team was dismantled. RJ Umberger holding out because he wanted 1 million dollars and we get Marty Rucinsky and Martin Grenier out of it. Sweet. No return for Nathan Smith and he was only ever known for his indecent exposure while with Pittsburgh, I believe.

    4. Huggy!


      @Tortorella's Rant bleackey, beach, Krahn, were worst. white was drafted late in the round to.

  11. For all those interested: the Utica Comets are currently streaming their game LIVE on Facebook RIGHT NOW



    1. Rounoush


      Thanks for the link. Caught the 3rd.



    1. -AJ-


      Crazy that he's doing that at 39 years old. 

    2. Jam126


      I'm so ashamed I read it as Saniel Dedin. 

  13. Quinn Hughes is currently a top-10 defenseman in the NHL and it's really not a debate

      I knew he was good because he and I share a birthday.

    3. janisahockeynut


      I love Hughes, but I am just wondering how you came to this conclusion


      It is a very lofty claim

    4. 112


      check what he linked in his reply to the status

  14. Goldobin is your AHL player of the week :)

    1. canuktravella


      if only canucks let this kid shine he should get offendise top six time with miller and petey 

  15. Pittsburgh has scored 7 goals in a game 3 times this year already

      @Baer. I want to see guys get 150+ points again tbh. The more goals the better imo, also if we could get to the point of 7-4 or 9-7 games. Hockey as a whole would grow big time. USA/Europe/North Asians would be more interested imo.


      Pens are insane. Without Malkin to

    3. BrockBoester


      Yes but have they scored 8?



    4. Coconuts


      A healthy Letang goes a long way to supporting their offense with Malkin out


      Helps that Crosby's still one of the best too 

  16. Elliotte Friedman said Canucks are kicking tires on Mark Pysyk from Florida. Winnipeg, New Jersey also interested.

      Friedman needs to be informed Gillis was fired years ago, we trade with all 30 teams now!

    3. NewbieCanuckFan


      @6string Which team would Gillis not deal with?

    4. 6string


      He did most of his deals through Fla.

  17. Kulikov on LOA. Winnipeg just can't catch a break. Probably weakest defense in league now.

    1. higgyfan


      Jets are in a desperate situation.  Most of their rds have little NHL experience and now the left side is looking pretty grim.  The Pysyk rumour makes me wonder if the Nucks are thinking about moving Tanev.  The Jet's desperation could garner a very nice return, I suspect.

  18. Are there any journalist websites that write articles on every NHL team? TSN/Sportsnet/Athletic only care about leafs.

    1. goalie13


      I've actually been fairly impressed by some of The Athletic's coverage of the Canucks.  There are have been some pretty good articles on there and since you can edit your preferences, you don't get bombarded by Leafs crap.

    2. -AJ-


      Not writing, but The Hockey Guy on YouTube covers all the teams pretty fairly.

  19. Look how they massacred my boy...

      @luckylager I'm not taking it well at all.  I can't believe Jimbo would do this! I cried in the bathroom at work today. Hopefully he doesn't get claimed, tears it up in Utica, then is called right back up. 


      Bo must be really disappointed right now...

      Yeah, I kinda figured

  21. Players I liked from today's scrimmage:


    Pettersson (obviously)






    Focht (he's big)



    Players I didn't like:









    I really liked the line of Baer-Focht-Motte. Lots of energy from those 3 guys.

      If Goldobin had half of Motte's work ethic he wouldn't be on the hot seat.

      Important question - was the concession open?

  22. Got my tix to Canucks training camp next weekend. I'm dying for hockey over here!

      Is the Russian version of Willie D coaching over there?

    3. Darius


      and he even got one chance to score

      Wow... That's a great way to develop a player.
