  1. 2018-19 Utica Comets Thread

    Lets hope so!! That is a solid top 3, plus Beagle to round out the bottom over the next few years.
  2. Kristoffer Gunnarsson | D

    JB quote from the draft "I think this kid will play". I like the physical style he brings. Is this his contract year with Frolunda Sid? I think he signed a 2 year contract with them. We could use his muscle down on the farm next year. And if his skating improves I think we will see him in a Canucks uniform. Kinda scary blue line with Guddy already in it. Gunner and Guddy would solidify our toughness on our back end. Especially with Hughes potentially making the team next year! We need some more size.
  3. 2018-19 Utica Comets Thread

    Congrats to all you crazy dedicated Comets fans in Utica!! You are all great examples of what TRUE hockey fans should be like. You got your teams back no matter what!! CHEERS!!!
  4. Wish Goldy would simplify his game

    That is a great point to make. He can tend to over think things. I've been pleasantly surprised by his play this year. But when Pettersson comes back it will be nice to have him go back to being the "trigger" man for Petey. Part of me wonders (and I may get flamed for this lol) but with how much chemistry Boucher showed with Goldy last year on the farm I would be tempted when injuries start to pile up, to give one last chance to Boucher in an offensive role along side Petey and Goldy. If you watched any of the Comets games last year you can see Goldy and Boucher had some VERY nice chemistry. And the way Boucher is tearing up the AHL this season it could be a realistic outcome if Green has the stomach for it.

    That blue line would be a breath of fresh air if it happens like that. Nice line up!
  6. Olli Juolevi | D

    WHY...!? I haven't been over there in probably 2 seasons now. I would check in from time to time before that...but I never felt like I could wash that filth off me so I walked away and never looked back. People get right obnoxious over there, and most are "under" educated it seems. And have problems even putting a decent sentence together or making a point for that matter. Just a hack n slash site.
  7. Olli Juolevi | D

    These are all great points to make. I think Edler could pass a lot of his skill set onto Juolevi when he does make the team. Could be a very good mentor to him as Salo was over in Finland. It only makes it better that Edler played many seasons with Salo so there is a form of familiarity there too, Edler could resonate well with the youngster.
  8. Olli Juolevi | D

    Most people on here are already hacking on him hard like they do on Edler, I think your proficy will be spot on when Joulevi does eventually make the NHL. He will be our new Edler. Most fans can't see clearly what they both bring to the ice. But NHL GM's do and that's why they want and need guys like this on their blue line. Not sexy, just get the job done and most nights keep the ice tilted in the other direction...but they ain't perfect and they have off games, and can look terrible. But 80 % of the games they play they are solid at what they do. Very good observation!
  9. Interestingly enough the last place Edler played pro hockey was in Winnipeg during the Manitoba Moose years. He likes familiar places. Could actually be a fit!
  10. Loui Eriksson Can't Be a Passenger (Article)

    Adopt a Petey program! I like it lol
  11. Loui Eriksson Can't Be a Passenger (Article)

    Points wise he isn't earning his contract, but as Jimmy stated above, even if he nets 0 goals and 50 assists this year it will be a win. He can feed off EP all he wants, it's what he's done his whole career, and he's good at being the glue guy. It could really work well for him. Plus aside from all that, i'd pay him 6 Mil a year just to be a friend to EP so he gets acclimated to life in North America, and Vancouver as well. I'm sure it's a culture shock. Aside from his parents who have been to a few games (and i'm sure at some point they have to go back home to Sweden) he doesn't have much else. His best friend is way down in Utica lol. Anyways if LE plays that kind of "parent hood" role for EP, then pay the man 6 Mil. EP is worth it. ...Maybe LE's contract will turn out to be a good investement in the long run after all...? (I hope!!)
  12. Loui Eriksson Can't Be a Passenger (Article)

    I don't like the whole "Loui can't be a passenger" message. Because the author must really not know him at all. LE has always been a "passenger" (if you want to call it that) his whole career, he's never RAN a line ever. But he is a great 3rd wheel for a lot of talented players. Which is why he was so money on in close chances back in his day. He was great at poking in those garbage goals and being a responsible player at both ends of the ice. He is providing a great mentorship role to EP, EP has already stated that LE was a family friend and it was comfortable knowing he was on the team as someone he can lean on. I believe LE is very important for EP early on. Passenger my butt.

    .....So does this mean Tryamkin is never coming back!!?? Vancouver is dope city, now it is dope country, I no want that for my family, I stay in Russia, no dope!
  14. (GDT) Nucks VS Pens in the Burg

    ...Chaput, Boucher, Archibald, Jokinen, Burmistrov, Gaunce, Gagne, Dowd....barf...(except my boy Archie, respect his toughness and wish he was just a tad bit faster, he’d be in the nhl). Also total random side thought, Seen a few clips of Arch in Utica this year covering for his Dman, actually plays the position well. Reminded me of how Byfuglyn was good at both positions back in the day for the hawks...parking his big butt in front of Loungo on the PP...those were good ol days. We have a very interesting team this year. I hope they keep this pace up all season. They will be hard to beat if they do!
