    No surprise there, but nice to hear nonetheless. I can see 2 years, maybe 3. Any longer than that wouldn't make much sense, we don't know if we'll have more RHD or lefties that end up playing right side and it's possible (hopefully) he's really pushed for competition at 3RD. Brisebois is one guy I can see pushing Troy at RD due to his experience playing his off side and the probably logjam we'll have at LD in 2-3 years time (Maybe Edler, but unlikely, Hughes, Juolevi, Tryamkin perhaps, UFA, McEneny?). Chatfield could be there pushing for 3RD as well.
  2. Sorry guys, I didn't make that clear - I'm not mad at all, I genuinely wanted to hear what you thought. You'd be one of the best sources on here regarding the Jets. I definitely meant that as a light attempt at coaxing some good info out
  3. You make a thread about your team and don't share your insights?? Spill, sir, what say you about this signing? Seems more than fair, but I've only seen Lowry play against the Canucks a few times. Aside: He makes for a wicked 84 overall 4th line C in NHL 17, so points for him there I guess.

    ACK I can't wait until lunch so I can watch this! So excited!

    I feel like Reaves vs. Roussel would be like giant flyswatter vs crippled fly. Not sure if I'm alone in this, but Reaves is the one guy I'd be most terrified to be on the ice with. Maybe Byfuglien is a harder hitter, but Reaves has to be one of the toughest fighters in the league. As for Hughes, I feel like (to a certain extent) the typical concerns over a smaller player are not quite applicable, just because he is so smart, plays with his head up, and is adept at evading fore-checkers. I hope he goes pro this year, and regardless of which league he plays in I expect he'll adapt very quickly.

    Lind - noticeably whites best forward, in terms of driving the play, his skill and changes of direction are great to watch. A few times he's made excellent passes that weren't handled as they should have been. Palmu - excellent pass from behind the goal line on the Madden snipe. Has otherwise been noticeable with his poise, you can tell he played among men last season. My completely-uneducated-about-hockey girlfriend decided she liked him the most on white, along with... Rathbone - she noticed his skating right away, as did I. That drag move to backhand across the net showcased his skating; just beat the defender wide effortlessly. More to come, but "Wooooooo!!!!" screams are happening everytime he's on the puck!!! Woooo

    Work done and I'm Rogers-bound!! I'll post my in-person observations about as many prospects as possible during breaks in play/intermissions. Looking forward to reading others' observations as well. I'm definitely planning on taking a few shifts of just watching Hughes, Rathbone, Lind, maybe a few others. Gotta take advantage of being at a game in person vs watching a feed, it's a rare enough occurrence

    5:30, someone posted a schedule at the top of page 13 or 14 of this thread I think.

    Stunning unawareness. How many different sources have said Gadjovich isn't playing? Is 5 not enough? What's going on??? Rick D couldn't have joined soon enough, 650 clearly needs all the help it can get.

    I'm on it tomorrow!! I'll hunt them down and ridicule their lack of intelligence, originality, and general inferiority in comparison to the one true reporting talent in Vancouver, Mr. Dhaliwal.
  11. Jack Rathbone | D

    Will I be able to hear you screaming "Just wait til October... JUST WAIT" from my seat? Sure hope so! It's just prospects camp, but I'm so fired up to see Rathbone impressing, Gadjovich and Lind being a little more in the spotlight, etc, etc... so much reason for optimism and enthusiasm around the future of the team, even as media is dumping on our most recent pro signings.

    Blujus probably has a spot over Sifers on average, if I recall @UticaHockey's commentary from late last year correctly. I'd also assume that Bancks would be one of the first 13th forwards if not playing bottom six. Centre looks solid with Gaudette, but if he's not there it looks dicey at best. Motte and Kero can probably go 1-2 but even then, McEwen hasn't played C as a pro and one injury hurts big-time. If that line-up stays healthy for a bit though, I love it, especially from a Canucks prospects development perspective.

    Price tag aside, I'm thrilled to have him here. His face-off prowess alone makes him a great addition to the team.
  14. Props for working the frog, who embodies negativity, into your happy dance!

    The game will be streamed on Canucks Facebook, I believe.
