    Trevor Linden had 30?
  2. Quinn Hughes | D

    What’s the equivalent of Swedish Gretsky hype name for Quinn? American Coffey? Americano? Haha
  3. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    Wow, Blashill is hyping EP40 more than a lot of Canucks fans even! You know you have something special when!
  4. Nicknames for EP

    That’s why I like EP40 because it reminds me of “ET phone home”. Hahaha

    You guys must have turned off your sarcasm detector today. Hahaha Obviously, Teemu is one of the best players to ever play the game. My comment was more about how rookie seasons are not necessarily the bottom of the trajectory for point production for upper echelon players. Crosby has only bested his rookie season 4 times during his career in terms of point totals. But he has certaintly become much more of a complete player over that time.
  6. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    Yeah, but Selanne was a bust after that - his whole career was downhill from there and he never did any better than his rookie season! Haha These upper echelon players often jump on the scene and dominate, but don’t really jump that much more in terms of points production - often because they become huge targets and teams focus just on shutting them down. If EP40 ends having a dominating season, the most I would hope for is that he ends up rounding out his game in all areas like Crosby and leads us to a few cups!

    Elder - Tanev (20 mins) Hughes - Gudbranson (20 mins) Juolevi - Tryamkin (20 mins) I could see something like this by mid season next year, if they all happen to sign and make the team. Hughes and Juolevi with more PP time and Guddy and Tryamkin with more PK time. Tryamkin could also be a good PP2 option, or even a net front presence on PP1 from time to time. I’m hoping the big guy signs. I would have no problem giving him Guddy money with term.

    AD17's first assist of the game and his goal at the end of the clip. A real nice second effort on his goal to give himself a shooting angle. Kid is gonna be a beaut!
  9. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    I think Virtanen’s game will take off once the defense can hit him in full flight with stretch passes on a consistent basis. That probably won’t happen until Joulevi and Hughes are on the team next year.

    Bure may have been ahead of his time, but EP40 is from another world!
  11. Adam Gaudette | #88 | C

    I didn’t watch the game, but he had 7 shots on net - the same as Boucher. So, he’s getting his shot through which is a good indication that the goals will come soon enough.
  12. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    ...doesn’t work like that man. I think seeing double all these years has you confused.
  13. Quinn Hughes | D

    I think more than one player can define a generation. Even when Gretzky played there was still Lemieux. And as much as people consider Crosby a generational player, I would consider a player like Ovi one as well. just my 2centz.
  14. Tyler Madden | C

    For those of you making comparisons of Tyler to his dad John in terms of size and weight, his dad's weight was 170 lbs in his sophomore (2nd) year playing college at Michigan and entered the NHL as rookie with the playing weight of 185 lbs: https://mgoblue.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=4634
  15. Quinn Hughes | D

    They will probably discuss what is better for his development: playing for the Canucks in a what is likely to be a bottom feeding season, or there is potential to play with his brother and push for a NCAA title. I think there is a higher probability that they do the latter if Jack is able to "accelerate" his academics, and then bring Quinn aboard once his season is over with Michigan.
