  1. David Booth has 5 goals in 19 games this season and Jake has 6 in 41 gp -let that sink in for a moment

      Well all GM's draft that one dud, so hopefully JB learns from this and the Eriksson signing if the Nucks decide to bring him back.  But if ownership had any say in the JV pick this franchise is in serious trouble.

      JB did draft McCann as well with a 1st and just because he turned him into Guddy (which hasn't turned out well at all and he may walk as a UFA) doesn't give him a pass. McCann is struggling to stay in the lineup of a mediocre Florida team.

    Yep a player's drive is all because of a coach, not because he wants to be a successful professional athlete., lets keep changing coaches because little jakey is sad and pouty because he has to play hard - again you ignore the fact that Green seemed to be having progress with him last year, so clearly its not coaching is it? First wilie, ok remove willie and use the coach that got through temporarily, and guess what, Jake is the same kid...maybe he's just lazy....its not the coach it the player SMH dude - not sure if you're a troll or what but if not you've never played a sport in your life other than lawn bowling What's the most odd here, is not once have you even suggested Jake has responsibilty for his own effort, all deflection, all that you Jake?

    Yes you're right, a furry puppet on CDC knows more lol SMH - good night man your comments are beyond stupid
  4. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    Yes you're right, the responsibility of playing hard doesn't fall on the player, its really on the coach to physically move Jake's his legs for him (WTF are you on man) - I am not even talking about lack of offensive production. I am talking about things 100% in his control. Effort, skating, playing physical, trying to be a difference maker without scoring every shift - anyone objective watching his play can see he's doing pretty much nothing As I said, its not hard for Jake to play as hard as Gaunce, to play that same game, and given he's on the fourth line, that's all that's being asked of him, and he can't even do that. Effort is internal. Your comments are absurd

    A player can play like matt martin if they had no coaching friend. I played at a high level, simply using your motor and working hard is easy. His lack of effort is not because of overcoaching 1. With Willie it was the coaches fault 2. Green seemed to be making inroads with him in Utica 3. Green is now the coach and he's doing the same thing as he did with Willie - being a passenger 4. But somehow, its the coaches fault again IF Green was making improvements in his game in Utica, and was doing a good job coaching, well Green is still the coach. The constant in the scenario above is Jake being lazy with 2 coaches and one that was credited for helping him prior. Green has been sitting him now, so...when do you people start putting the onus on the player to show he wants to be in the league vs blaming the coaches?

    Hockey isn't brain surgery guys....smh- its a damn game he's played all his life He's lazy

    To play and straight up and down 200 ft game doesnt take much hockey IQ buddy, it takes effort, that's all. When are people here going to actually place his lack of effort on him, vs 'overcoaching' Give that nonsense a rest. So because Green is telling him to play defense it means he can't work as hard as other players? He can't work as hard as Burr or Hansen did as they came into the league? Is it 'too hard' or the coaches fault that he can't play as hard as say Matt Martin? Or Gaunce Apologists on this site for Virtanen's indifferent play, either don't know hockey or are such fan boys they are biased, you cannot objectively say he's giving his all. Is that why he saw barely any ice that last few games in the third? A player has a choice to want to contribute or not, he is choosing not to contribute its that simple
  8. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    So, to play good defense he can't forcheck? LOL... Maybe Bo, Granny, Sutter, etc should do the same then? WOW SMH

    Agree with all you've said but bert had shown some pretty strong offensive play in his first two years and took a step back in year three. Given we gave up a 27 yr old Linden, clealry he was seen as having alot of potential. My issue and many here is that the effort to make a difference every night is not there. He has the tools to impose his will on other players with his speed and physicality but I seldom see him as the first man in, throwing a hit, etc. That's effort nothing else
  10. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    You can’t say what he is I agree but you Cannot also ignore “trajectory”. Many people use the Bertuzzi example or say “power forwards take time to develop”, and sure every player is different. However, what you need to see is a player making significant improvements in key facets of his game, and see “it coming”. Bert was inconsistent in his earlier years but there was still enough of an upward trajectory to see he could hopefully put it together. Virtanen hasn’t shown that whatsoever and one could argue this season he actually looks worse as he’s not really doing anything to show he belongs, and the effort to try and make a difference just isn’t there. would people be on Jake if he was working as hard as Gaunce? Maybe a few but many would say “ok I see the effort, and with that effort over time, hopefully the talent emerges”. But he’s not. hes trending a lot more like kassian in Buffalo and here than he is Bertuzzi

    Unlike me you don’t pretend to know if our prospects can contribute next year? yet the basis of your argument is predicated on assuming some will, whereas my point is none have shown that ability to date - thus I ACTUALLY AM ASSUMING NONE WILL CONTRIBUTE MORE THAN THE TWINS COULD, yet you assume they will. Thus, it follows logically that it is YOU who is assuming prospects will corntribute, no me lol. SMH i think you need to learn to arrange your logic in a more rational manner guy. sorry you’re so angry about being wrong about hockey players lol - don’t become a lawyer kid you just argued my case for me

    That’s what Guddy was brought in for, but he spends more time in the infirmary than Tanev. Losing Tryamkin really hurt this team, I pray he comes back just as we’re turning the corner for some playoff runs.

    We certainly aren’t going to get last or 2nd last spot. We’ll likely end up in the 3-6 hole. I think we’re all used to Canuck Luck so don’t expect first overall but I think there are so many talented players in the top ten is doesn’t matter. People always want the “shiny new superstar” but players often come anywhere in the first round and emerge. Who’s to say Bouchard doesn’t end up being Doughty 2.0? I’ve seen him play a lot and he’s being underestimated by many. I actually think if we don’t get first he’s a better pick over Bovquist. He plays a similar style, runs the London PP, is a RD, smooth skater, mobile and 6’2’’ and almost 200 lbs now. And he comes from an NHL player factory that we have “know what we’re getting” - a kid who’s been coached to be a pro from the Hunters. We we are going to get another cornerstone piece in this draft and hopefully a few more given JBs drafting acumen. Hopefully some trades find us another first and second and we could be at least “ready” to start the next stage of the rebuild as the cupboards will finally be full, should we draft well this year.
