    Thats not a forehead that's a fivehead
  3. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    Is it just me or has EP barely been on the ice?
  4. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    For me it's his slender build. But I do think he will eventually be a very formidable NHL C but if the plan is to get him in to play next year, I think it'd be smart to put him on the wing to start. Let him get accustomed to the game, see how his body reacts to the schedule and physicality.

    157 kph (97.5mph) slapper is pretty impressive considering EP's size. Can anyone translate whats being said in the video?

    If you're not pushing for an NHL spot by the time you're 16, and aren't a bonafide star by 18, you're obviously a bust. How is that so hard to understand?

    "you're the biggest f'n diver in the league bud!" this is hilarious

    After a scrum in front of the lakers net. The mics picked up "HEY! WHAT THE F...?!" "You slashed me right over the hands!" surprised they're cursing in English.

    Rosen with another goal. 4-0 Pettersson started off the play, but no assist.
  10. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    none were as highly touted as Petterson. They brought excitement because for years upon years there was absolutely nothing down the pipeline in terms of upcoming young stars. We did not have anyone breaking 40 year old scoring records at the age of 19. We had no one dominating against men, winning scoring titles, and leading the playoffs in scoring against men at the age of 19. Coho was touted to be good, but he was not creating headlines like Petterson was on an international level, not even close.
  11. Why is there even a debate? Horvat should he captain end of story. He's the first one to emerge as a glimmer of some hope for the future of the canucks (we did not have nearly as deep of a prospect pool as we do now in terms of talent). Hes worked his way up from the 4th to the first line. Where once we were hoping he'd become a solid 3c for us, now we talk about how he will stack up against the rest of the leagues top centres - The franchise will NOT have a difficult time marketing that story. Bounced back after having a very rough sophomore start. He has invaluable playoff experience. (even one round is huge for young players to to through) Most importantly, he's learned the most from the Sedins in terms of what it takes for a young player to become a professional and would be the perfect leader to pass on that knowledge to the new generation of canucks that will be coming through. Horvat for captain.

    It's a Polish last name.. Pronounced, Lish - Chahr - Chik (at least thats as close I can translate to what an english pronunciation would sound like xD)
  13. Troy Stecher | #51 | D

    the biggest difference in Stetcher's and Hutton's development from what I could see is that although Stetcher's offensive production dropped significantly from his rookie season, the other aspects of his game have improved and his effort level has been consistent. Whereas, Hutton is now in his third year, and not only has his offensive production dropped, but all other aspects (his speed in particular) of his game have regressed and his effort level has been consistently inconsistent. He's a liability on the ice.
  14. Adam Gaudette | #88 | C

    Small sample size but I was very impressed with what I saw out of gaudette. His puck pursuit was quite noticeable for me, as well as how well he was able to protect the puck once he has it. He's also made a bunch of great passes that lesser players probably would of just dumped in or gave up the possesion in his situation. He's been unlucky not to get a point, but if he keeps playing this way and is put on a line with more skilled forwards receiving those passes, he'll be contributing in no time. Expect him to be a key piece for this team moving forward. This training camp is going to be one of the most exciting if not the most exciting ever for the canucks with all this potential oozing from so many players
  15. Lukas Jasek | RW

    Seeing him have this early success is a great sign. Has anyone gotten a chance to watch the two games in full? How does he look out there (besides the goals and assists)
