  1. Myers has made a few nice defensive plays already today.
  2. And with that Ferland has more hits tonight than LE as a Canuck.
  3. Always curious what it’s like for our players during these events. The ‘82 team has a rightful place in history...but these guys weren’t born yet.
  4. Worried...nope. Excited...oh yeah! Rivalries make this game exciting. Watching the WCE play against the trap in Dallas was like watching paint dry. Watching Van vs Chicago was edge of your seat. Two good teams that learn to hate each other in the playoffs is what the game is about. I’m so glad to have a team that’s competitive. Give this group a little time to grow (physically and as a team) and teams like Colorado will be worrying about us.
  5. Clearly you have never tripped a toddler...the little arms trying to stop the fall and the look they give you, Why??? LEG-EN-DARY!!! Also if you set the bar low enough it’s way easier to get over it.
  6. 5-3 Canucks final score 2-0 Sabres at end of first.
  7. I love Burrows! Trading him was the right move. His age and connection to the Sedins and 2011 run combined with the retirement contract (that he deserved but couldn’t get here) meant he had to go. The return is not important. The years he played in Ottawa were lost and he wouldn’t have made a difference. You can’t transition to a new core without get rid of the old one. Happy to see him in the ROH. I look forward to seeing him coach or help out here in some capacity one day but the trade was warranted and one that I feel we won. We have a prospect (didn’t say a grade A prospect) and Ottawa has a memory of the last couple years of Burr.
  8. Not the best played game, but a W is a W. Thank you Burrows!
  9. Go for it...It was removed before I made an actual account on here...I’ve never had a downvote, it can be a badge of honour for me.
  10. What are the odds of another Canucks penalty called? My bets on about 85%
  11. Miller!!! That trade is looking better every game.
  12. I wonder if they considered replacing the old Vancouver on the jersey with “Bipolar”
  13. Just tuned in...4 shots?? They know you can’t score without directing the puck towards the Pens net right?
  14. Not putting this all on coaches, but they ply a roll too. An AHL team should be able to get more than two shots in 15 min. Where is the game plan/ back up plan? They look lost out there.
  15. The strategy here is awesome. It’s rope a dope...hopefully their forwards and D get tired from all the shooting and Hart will fall asleep. Then Bam! Winning!
  16. And this is one of the many reasons I am not an NHL GM. I’ll be happy if they are in the playoffs this year, but hope they are planning for a long run. My only complaint about Green is his apparent lack of ability to adjust. Throw the lines in a blender is the go to for adversity and I’d like to see more of a calculated approach.
  17. On the original topic, is there an option for “someone else”? I think Green was always supposed to be a placeholder of a coach. Here to oversee the kids turning into men and a real team emerging. A players coach who gets along with them, let’s the losses go easily and generally makes life easy for them. When it’s truly time for a playoff run there should be a change. The players will need to be pushed and challenged more and some better systems built. I don’t know if Babcock is where we want to go get this though. It seems a bit like John Tortorella. Experience is great but there has to be other options. Kinda wish we had gone for coach Q when he was available. I don’t follow enough teams to really understand their coaches but I’d like to see the bench run differently. Put your strong players in a position to succeed, line match, shut down other teams stats while letting ours gel as a line and do some real damage. Long story short I hope Green only has another year here at most, but don’t think Babs is the answer.
