  1. Canucks players put in video game ban on the road

    As a gamer myself, I totally understand. Playing late into the night, for even one night let alone night after night, does affect performance, focus and concentration at work. It would be crazy to suggest otherwise. I think this is a good policy and it will actually help the team on the road.
  2. Agreed. We had bad injuries over the Celebrini era. I do believe we've taken care of the players after their careers are over, better with the new treatments. As far as injury prevention, I don't have stats (I would love to see them) but it certainly seems the injury bug hit us worse. Whatever we were doing for strength and conditioning before, with less injuries, is way preferable. Old ways/new ways, I don't care. Just reduce the injuries. We are in the NHL's worst in that regard.
  3. Battles at camp

    The really good news out of camp is if these guys make the team, it means the future is bright! Gaudette Dahlen Lind Boucher Palmu Need an 8th D? We got an 8th D who might crack the lineup: Juolevi ... and honestly, Biega slots into the top 6 and doesn't look out of place.
  4. [Article] Winners and Hughes-ers

    He's just not physically ready at this stage in his development. I think those of us who saw him play at the summer showcase, generally all saw the same thing. He has the speed and the awareness, but he can't win puck battles against NHL calibre players, or even elite AHL calibre players. He simply needs to grow bigger and stronger, while keeping his skills and skating ability. I would feel comfortable putting him in the Canucks lineup if he gained an extra 10-15 lbs of muscle. Since he is a teenager, this might happen naturally anyway. I agree with Benning, (and even Hughes), throwing him to the NHL wolves at this stage is probably a mistake.
  5. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    So Depth = sqrt(Pi) then.... very interesting Dr. Crossbar. Benning should be notified immediately
  6. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    If it's a toss-up between Hutton/Stecher/Biega and Juolevi, I think we just have to go with Juolevi right now. Give him at least 9 games. We have to see what we've got to work with. And the other guys have already gotten a year or more in the NHL. Let him show us what he brings to the team.
  7. goals,goals...from who?

    Connor McDavid Scored 41 Goals in his 3rd season of the NHL. If Pettersson scores 41 in his rookie year... then !
  8. goals,goals...from who?

    He had me at "Guaranteed Goal Projection". That's hillarious!
  9. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    Training camp will tell. The good news is, no one is guaranteed a position. The cream gets to rise to the top. If you don't show up to play we can slot in someone who will. In particular I would like the see Dahlen/Pettersson together in a line combo for a few games at least. Juolevi also needs to break into the nhl soon, or else warning lights will start blinking...
  10. Battles at camp

    Guys like Schaller don't have to start with the Canucks. It's unlikely another team would pick him up. We picked him up on free agency. If some other team wants to take a flyer on him, we can live with it. He only plays if he's top 13 on the roster.
  11. [GDT] 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    jett woo
  12. Acording to Bob McKenzie ( Picks 5 through 8)

    Then we take Bouchard.
  13. THIS IS THE DAY, Canucks get #7

    You just draw the digits, in order. Have 10 balls, 0-9 numbered. Draw 4 times, you will get a number from 0000 to 9999. You can use this to get any percentage, to fit any percentage distribution range.
  14. Other teams knew Pouliot was going on waivers and wanted to take a chance to pick him up for nothing. We offered Pittsburgh something, which is a lot better than losing him for nothing.
  15. Things that make you feel good

    A good meal, a roof over my head, a safe neighbourhood, peace and quiet.
