  1. Hoping for a "plummer" like effort tonight. hard skating and hard hitting. Looking for a "Petey" like effort from EVERYONE. If we are going to lose then we at least can hold our head up knowing we gave a good effort. If the game ends and we are making comments like "so and so" looked "off" tonight or we are saying "we needed petey tonight" then the character of our team still needs work.

    I thought they were tired from that grueling road trip......oh wait. Looks like some were given leadership training from the Sedins. oops did I say that out loud? Everyone started out the season great, seems some are starting to peter out now. Inconsistency is starting to rear its ugly head. Where or Where's Petey?
  4. I was basically going to say the same thing but you beat me to it.
  5. Its funny you say that because now Toraunta is the new "Contenders" that we should be wanting to be like. I am going to laugh so hard when they get knocked out in the first round.
  6. Oh there were CDCers who were saying that and that we didn't tank enough to get McDavid. I could probably do some searching but to be honest I don't have that much energy to do that.

    Players need to be multidimensional nowadays and just floating around putting up points here and there just doesn't cut it anymore. That's what happened to the Sedins. Great offensive skill still, the problem is that everything else diminished in their games. When this happens, you become a liability. The problem compounds itself when said player stops producing.

    [Proposal/Discussion][ The Question

    This should be the plan no matter where we are in the season, why wait for one specific time to try and improve your team? It makes absolutely no sense. Look at teams like Edmonton right now, they are desperate and desperate teams do crazy things. Why not benefit from their misfortunes? JB has put us in a great position to take advantage of a situation if and when they come up. We have Cap space, a couple of trading pieces and no rush to do anything foolish. We could just stay pat if other teams just want to fleece us. Now if they want to give us a piece to OUR PUZZLE, then we are here to do business, any time of the year.

    Its sad to see because he is such a gifted hockey player. If I had seen just a little improvement in what he needs to work on I would say keep him and let him develop like Jake did. He just seems for most of a game to not really care and doesn't have that burning desire to score or win the game. I am afraid he would be one of those who disappear in the playoffs once the checking got a lot tighter. You look at the difference in his effort most nights compared to EP's, its not even close. You would think that the desire to become a regular NHLer would drive him to perform every night and every shift. I guess some players are just wired differently I guess.
  10. Too funny , not just a few short seasons ago, some CDCers were complaining how far we were to then "Contenders" Edmonton Oilers. Look where they are now! So those who preach you need this or that for your team to be a contender can plainly see its more then just a "superstar" , "the next Gretzky" ,some "elite" players and 10 million #1 draft picks to make a Stanley Cup team. I will take our few Veterans, a couple of young prospects with character and a so-so goalie over that bunch any day.

    Strength of Schedule: Canucks can make a run

    You think JB knows what he is doing?
  12. This is good reminder the position JB has been able to put this team in. We are in a position of strength with no hurry or pressure to do anything. However, there are teams like Edmonton who are under pressure to make moves they might not normally do. With cap space and the odd spare parts, I am sure JB is eventually going to find a deal which is going to help this team in the long run and provide short-term relief for others. A good position to be in for us.
  13. I would do Poolparty for Goldy straight up. Two projects and at least Goldy has more points then anyone else not named McDavid, Draisaitl or Nugent-Hopkins on the team right now.
  14. Moore should NOT have played that next game against the Canucks and what if Petey had his neck broken by the body slam? Also, Guddys sucker punch, nothing happened to the guy so he was not even given a penalty. So Moore and his lawyer family see an opportunity to sue the pants off of Bert and take advantage of a freak accident and absolutely sink Bert because during a hockey game he decided to punch him in the mouth. Not body slam him. not two handedly swing a stick at his head or even use his elbow to his head, he used a gloved fist. Moore had smartly centered all the attention on Bert and nothing else, including all of his teammates dogpiling on him while he was on the ice. If a guy INTENDS TO INJURE another player ,the penalty should be extreme, period. Then there wouldn't be the need to have any kind of retaliation by players as the league would have taken care of it. This should have happened after the league decided to take it out of the players hands(instigator rule) and do away with Goons.
  15. Hmmm this eerily sounds like what they did with Moore. If he was suspended 10-20 games the rest of the story may never have played out.
