  1. On another note the defense looks good and Yes Rafferty looks good when he was up I wood say its lucky Stecher has a job.
  2. Yes he does a good job on covering the Comets . JB has put together a stronger roster this year on the big team and some carryover has leaked down to the Comets. Tyler Graovac looked good up on the Canucks too bad he is hurt. The lack of centers is due to the players JB has been drafting college, European players some graduating . The comets can make do ZM played center put him in the middle . Try other players at center and see what happens. We all cannot have Sid the Kid as a center.
  3. Ferland gives the Canucks real muscle and has skill to go along with that. something we have been lacking .
  4. Should not been a game 7 should have ended in 5 or 6 at the most . but the point im making is the Cunucks dont have the push back .needed to be a cup winner. Or the coaches dont believe in sticking up for their players.
  5. The 2011 team series changed when it went to Boston and the intimidation started .The boys could not match that, out coached and intimidated we had toughness but not when it counted. Everyone had Injuries . Game 7 no one showed up . .
  6. First of all that is the dumbest statement I ever seen on this web site. If Daniel had stuck up for himself and showed a little spine he would be wearing a Stanley Cup Ring. If you want to win you need push back Having Marty McSorley on your line helped Gretzky a lot, also when any team member gets ruffed up there should be an response by all the players clear the bench if you have to.
  7. Relax , the sky is not falling . Give it ten games.
  8. Everyone needs to take a chill pill, after 10 games then we can valuate this team. Any comments on coaching changes and roster changes should be toned down till then. Relax hockey is back enjoy
  9. LOL Jake is a bust trade him while he has some value. He has no mind for the game.
  10. Op came up with a simple solution Coastal your the one that complicated it. But thats the West Coast View dont want pipelines but complain about gas prices . If it wasn't for the Canucks, Vancouver would not be my town of choice., Get rid of the Provincial Income Tax add a Vat tax on every thing .You spend you pay, Simple way to lower the taxes and make Shure everyone pays their share.
  11. He has a regular daily show on the NHL XM Broadcast
  12. As a fan of 50 years I was disappointed as well as shocked at his comments on us as fans and the Canucks team.
  13. Boomer Gordon's comments on NHL Radio . Recently NHL network radio ( Last Week), the Power Play they were doing power rankings and put us in the bottom 10 .Boomer when questioned about his ranking of the Canucks the next day stated that he basically had no use for the Canucks, Vancouver and their Fans . And believed the Canucks were poorly managed and had little or no direction. As far as he concerned Hockey stopped at Alberta border. Now thats eastern media bias ! Not shure on how to get the Podcast for the show maybe one of the listener's has a copy. Tweet him at Boomer Gordon (@ThePointSXM)

  15. Its just something to fill the summer fodder of meaningless articles.
  16. We are not good enough yet dont place this at the coaches feet Benning is the fall guy
  17. What I see is one high end defense man on the back end other than what we have . That is what we need! Scoring we have enough with this roster 2 to 3 potential 30 to 40 goal scorers 3 or more 20 plus goal scorers . The Canucks need a deman that can put up 60 points.
  18. Furthermore more, defense wins championships. JB needs to hit on his Drafted Defense, Hughes , Juolevi , and his stable in the minors. They need to turn out, every other team is drafting studs but us. time to Draft D.
  19. Sorry to say this but this is the worst topic discussion I have every read on here . Go after Q ha ha ha. You are so funny why would he come here. ? Time to say what needs to be said we are not good enough period . Build threw the draft. BAUMGARTNER is fine .
  20. Really Baertschi is still useful and gives us depth plays with heart LE should be traded or waved move on. Its about winning and we are in that mode now.
  21. True enough LE will get his chance. I wouldn't hold my breath though on him making the team.
  22. Well done, I see the same outcome All we are missing is one more Dman get rid of Stecher and replace with a bigger Dman that can score .Out Eriksson play the kids.
  23. So I believe management is doing a ok job but could do more. Up grading the defense even more. would be my choice Moving Virtanen fore a right shot high end prospect would be my choice .
