  1. The new era has officially begun.
  2. I really don't see Gaunce making the team, the guy has size, yet time and time again proves he doesn't like to use it. Tim Schaller will make a guy like Gaunce redundant imo. Archie has more of what we need in his game, but he is just too streaky. I honestly don't see either of them in opening night lineup. Hope they prove me wrong. Leipsic, i think will make the lineup, with some coaching and given some time to gain chemistry he could be a player. He's got probably the 2nd best hands on the team and one of the fastest players as well. He doesn't shy away from the middle of the rink either. He's got some pros and cons. Will be exciting to see what he makes of himself.

    So psyched to watch some hockey again! The wait has been too long. Ready to see the Canucks future begin to come together!

    [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    I am just amazed at what the Sedins can still do. They make their saucer passes look so incredibly easy. They have been a pleasure to watch and man was that game fantastic. The Sedins sure showed there is lots of gas in the tank. This game will join the game 7 vs Chicago and Bieksas OT goal vs San Jose as my favorite moments in the Sedin era.

    [Retirement] The Sedins to retire at the end of the season

    I am going to miss hearing "Henrik -- Daniel -- back to Henrik -- Daniel Scores!!' No more Jim Hughson "Sedinery" either So many Iconic moments. I am so happy I have got to watch these guys play since I started watching hockey in 05/06. Best of luck In future endeavors Hank and Danny!

    I don't think he's referring to Marky and Nilly.

    This Team Has No JAM!

    Where did you read anywhere in what I said that I compared the pens to us at this stage? We aren't even a playoff team now, let alone a contender obviously we are still missing key pieces that we will aquire over FA, the draft and by trade. I am just excited to see the wealth of talent and take heart knowing that eventually toughness will come along with proper drafting as well we can trade for a piece that we may need. I am not worried one bit about team toughness yet. That's a discussion for at the earliest next trade deadline. Like I said, Pittsburgh does have team toughness like I said. Their top 6 aren't a bunch of head hunters or big hitters but they hold their own with aggressive forechecking and tenacity. I expect Bo and Brock both to be able to hold their own, and definitely we will have to add a top 6 player who is skilled but has some grit such as a Kesleresque player.

    Im quite surprised you found a way to put a negative spin on our prospect pool. When I look at our prospect pool l see a team that is going to be fast and extremely talented. Sure there's no Lucic, Chara and Marchand in there, but look at Pittsburg. Team toughness and having an effective 4th line is what they've needed. I think Bo, Gaudette, Virtanen, Gadjovich (Tryamkin possibly) all have that element of size and aggressiveness. Vancouver can easily pick up guys in free agents that have some toughness but why go searching for toughness before you have enough talent to be protecting. I wouldn't start doubting the teams direction yet. I'm really intrigued as to what's going to happen at the deadline this year. It will probably be a huge factor in whether I continue being pro Benning or not.

    [PGT] Nashville Predators vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Yeah that has been blatant the past few games. We miss having that guy who can turn a game around and get the team going with a single shift. Sometimes all it would take is for the team to see him go thump a few guys to bring the confidence out of the rest of the guys to start finishing their checks. I hope Dorsett has really rubbed off on Virtanen and that he will take a few things out of watching him.

    Find it funny how last game Baer was in fire. Many people saying this is gonna be a beast game from him. When it wasn't people are all blasting him. Very funny how cdc acts sometimes lol. One day hero next day zero. I do think that with time he will be moved out of the top 6. He just seems to lack something we need, be it strength speed or scoring. Once the next wave of young guys come in we will know for sure where he will sit.

    I can just see Travis giving it to the boys about getting the puck on net after this one. Many grade A chances just inches away from a gaping net. Great work ethic but they gotta finish. Koodos to Markstrom for really showing what he's got; those 25 saves weren't easy since many were 2 on 1s. It's gonna be a tough call picking who's in net for Saturday.
