  1. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    I am suprised that Jake seems to be held to a higher standard than everyone else, There are other, older players out there playing worse than JV but no one gives them a hard time with the excessive critisism that seems to still float Jakes way when he has an off night. Also, he can't go balls to the wall every shift and every game. He will have bad nights like everyone else. Jake just seems to catch it from us a lot more for, a lot less, than other players. I like what I've seen of Jake so far this year. One other thing, Jake is a lot better defensively than he get credit for. I do believe he is +4 so far this season. I know some would like to see him hit more and that would be fine, as long as doing so doesn't make him less effective defensively.

    I was looking at the stats page on the Canucks page and noticed that JV is a +3 and HS & DS are both -5. Even though the twins get extra ice time, JV is the better defensive player and has better +/- than other players as well but he doesn't get the opportunity to play special teams assignments. I think JV would make a great PK guy and with his speed be a shorthanded threat. Also, he would be nice to see him in front of the net or maybe on the point on the 2nd PP unit.

    Jake isn't a bad defensive player. I think he is +2 so far this year and has been using his speed effectively in his backchecking. I would like to see him with some speedier line mates. but the Twins mentoring him as a line mate could be real good good for him this year as well. I've been watching some Comets games and would like to see the Canucks bring up Goldy play on a line with Jake.
  4. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks

    Maybe put Virtanen on the point on the PP. Hispeed would allow him to get back needed.
  5. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    I am going to roll the dice and say Kole Lind shocks everyone and makes the team.
  6. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    Man, did the team look slow last night. I think they need to put Jake back in and play him with some quicker skaters.
  7. Jordan Subban | D

    I think it might be easier for him to learn the defensive side as a winger. thus putting his scoring ability to work as a forward.
  8. Jordan Subban | D

    Playing defense as a forward is a lot different than playing defense as a defenseman.

    I would like to see him used as a forward. Alex Burrows was a defenseman in junior I believe and changed when he turned pro. This would allow him to be that specialist on the point on the power play and be a forward where his size would be less of a detriment.
  10. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    Jake seems to be doing well in front of the net and I think he would be an upgrade as a net front presence on the powerplay. I would not mind seeing him get some time on the PK as well. Maybe on the last pairing to use his speed as a shorthanded goal scoring threat.
  11. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    I thought the team looked slow tonight. They really missed Jake's speed tonight. I would like to see Jake play with Bo & Baer. They have had some success in the past and they all play with speed as well.
  12. Kole Lind | RW

    I have been thinking that Kole could be a more natural scorer than even Brock. I am not a big fan of comparing players development as each player is different but he seems to be a more talented version of Alex Burrows.
  13. Kole Lind | RW

    Is it possible that Lind becomes even better than what people think Brock is going to be? I am thinking that if he continues to progress we could see him in Vancouver sooner than later. I like how he seems to play with a bit of an edge as well.
  14. The curious case of Brock Boeser

    Is anyone concerned that BB way tiered after the preseason? What is he going to be like in the middle of January? If he starts to tier out in a month I wonder if he will be sent to Utica to work on his conditioning like Jake last year.
  15. Ring of Honor: Bertuzzi or Burrows?

    Both would be my choice.
