  1. 2014 draft not looking too bad at all nowadays

    1. Squamfan

      we could have had pasta a 50 goal scorer

      @Squamfan - we were so close too :sadno:

      Oh well, hindsight is 20/20.

      canucks hired benning while he still worked for bruins.  he probably knew about pastrnak but couldn't draft players he scouted  in bruins pick range

  2. Kassian kick on Cernak is one of the most dangerous things I've ever seen in sports. I hope he is suspended 10+ games. That is extremely &^@#ing dangerous. A skate blade to chest of ALL places. And he talks about the code and dirty cheapshots. He lost whatever respect I had left for him. What a &^@#ing goof.

       Chara gets only a fine for a crosscheck on a person's neck.  lol.  Jacobs still has plenty of stroke in the NHL.

       

      Good thing Kassian wasn't wearing a Canuck jersey when he pulled that cheap move.  He'd get 20 to life in a Federal prison if took a deal to avoid the death penalty.

      If it's an in person isn't it at least 5+ games?

  3. Quick question, will cops pull you over for a broken headlight glass cover? My lights and everything work but my headlight cover is partially shattered.

      Alf told me to tell the officer you’re a sovereign citizen and you’re only traveling not driving....you don’t recognize his or her authority.  Great way to get a free nights accommodation at the taxpayers expense.  Meet new friends....maybe intimately.:P

  5. If we lose tomorrow you best believe everyone’s chanting either Fire Green or Benning, followed by a move the day after.

      I'd be surprised if "Fire Benning" was chanted any time soon, most fans I've spoken to seem to think he's alright

       

      There's a lot of Green-related frustration bubbling though

      with the opponents coming up, we may not win another game tis year. maybe one or two. 

  6. We have the most goals scored on the powerplay, and 5th in the league PCT, yet when you watch our powerplay it looks bottom 5 in the league. So strange

      give the kids some time

      we must have the youngest or close to youngest 1st pp grouping in the league

      it will take some time for them to gain consistency

      and the flair everyone clearly expects from this talent level

       

  7. Honestly I'd be down to use Hughes as a forward on the powerplay. 

    1. Jaku

      Jaku

      In what role? He's not a great shooter, so he's not going to be on the half wall. He's not big enough to retrieve pucks in the bumper spot, same with net front. That leaves the spot he's currently in now. 

    2. Ghostsof1915

      Ghostsof1915

      The reason players like Jordan Subban was thought to make him convert to wing, is he wasn't that great of a defenceman. 

      Converting him to a winger was thought to give him a shot at making the NHL. 

      Hughes has shown, he can defend, and effectively. Having him QB the power play is far more useful than moved to a forward position.

      Was kind of a rhetorical opinion but hey at this point let's experiment :frantic:

  8. This Benning guy is a joke

      we treat hotdogs with respect in my section. wtf

  10. It actually boggles my mind Pettersson has been playing with goalie profiled skates most of his life.

      Probably. Definitely more refined skating in all aspects with the new skates for sure. I’m  going to be paying attention more closely to his edge work as well as balance, two things he aruguably needs most work on. 

      Honestly just get him going with Bo’s power skating coach and he’s well on his way to being an elite skater. 

    3. Jaku

      Good lord. That made me monumentally more excited.

      Petey's so good he has to handicap himself to give the other guys a chance.

  11. Oilers are going to finish dead last this upcoming season, book it. That roster is beyond trash.

      McDavid likely demands a trade to an NHL team within the next year or so.  He'll be approaching UFA status by the time the Oilers assemble enough talent to avoid embarrassing themselves, let alone contending for the playoffs.

    3. Dazzle

      Dazzle

      @NewbieCanuckFan Edmonton had freaking McJesus, Hall, RNH, Eberle and they still couldn't make the playoffs once. What makes you think two players can do it?


      They have the same issues as they've had for so many years. They drafted the wrong players organizationally and neglected the other aspects of their team.

      How many "oil changes" do they think need before they realize that they need a new car?

       

       

    4. NewbieCanuckFan

      NewbieCanuckFan

      @Dazzle  Actually my post said that I don't see them finishing in last place because of those two *but* that doesn't mean I believe they will be in contention for even just a wild card spot.:)

       

  12. Genuinely excited about getting Ferland lets go

    1. coastal.view

      coastal.view

      yeah i like the concept too

      let's see the details

      please don't over pay him

       

    2. MikeBossy

      MikeBossy

      Man the top 6 if Ferland is signed is delightful. The space Ferland will create for Petey and Bo and the fact he has the knuckles to make other teams think twice about manhandling Petey. LOVE IT!

      Let’s hope Kelly Sutherland doesn’t get too involved in our games.:P

  13. Is autosave broken? I was going to respond to a poster in the Tyler Myers thread, I click on new posts and my long typed post was gone. It's happened many times lately.

      Worked fine for me a day or two ago.

  14. Should we go after Mats Zuccarello if he becomes a UFA?  I'd take a chance on him

    1. Boeserker

      Boeserker

      Zuccadelzotto? That rings a bell

    2. Zhukini

      Yes, he should be the first forward we target but for some reason apparently he's not.

      If one of the two teams ain't the Canucks....who the **** really cares though?

       

      (as long as the Laffs, Coilers or Lames aren't there...)

  17. I'm taking Horvat over Monahan any day of the week, regular season or playoffs. Monahan probably more skilled but 0 work ethic. Please stay away from players like Monahan that have 0 heart. Some of the worst playoff performances I've seen from a "1st line center" in a long time. He's literally Messier'd the Flames this playoffs.

      The Canucks have the best individual player in the league for every line-up slot.

    4. King Heffy

      @Elias Pettersson the problem with Messier wasn't skill, the problem was he was a lazy floater who was a cancer in the locker room.  Monahan is an excellent comparison to that waste of oxygen.  A true leader would have knocked that chip-binging piece of garbage out for being a complete disgrace to the franchise.

      Messier is absolute scum and his tombstone should be a urinal.

      I remember that Vancouver was pretty hyped on Makar and really wanted him. We got Pettersson though, so it worked out for us! But still, imagine a pairing of Hughes-Makar!

      I did some number crunching and to give us a realistic shot we gotta go

      6-1-1 and finish with 87 points while everyone else finishes with 86 or less. It will be tough but it seems everyone is heating up at the right time.
