  1. Sorry its not how it works intimidation is still a factor in the NHL. Power play is a deterrent some what but only if its effective sometimes you need a good old fashion two handed slash on the perpetrator then a elbow to the head to be left alone . Skate buy their bench and say your stars are next.
  2. No one is saying fight Lucic we are saying flatten they guy thats doing the damage against Pettersson.
  3. Even the commentators wonder why the Cunucks dont stick up for Pettersson . Crosschecked, slue footed time to fire this coach . I guess management doesn't care about its stars.
  4. Green needs to wake up Take Schaller and Eriksson and sit them play MacEwen and Bailey centered by Gaudette.
  5. Ok Im going to weigh into this topic . We aren't tough enough period we play small. Main reason is we dont have anyone that the opposition is afraid of.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Ferland gives the Canucks real muscle and has skill to go along with that. something we have been lacking .
  9. 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.
  10. 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 . .
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. LOL Jake is a bust trade him while he has some value. He has no mind for the game.
  14. 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.
  15. He has a regular daily show on the NHL XM Broadcast
  16. As a fan of 50 years I was disappointed as well as shocked at his comments on us as fans and the Canucks team.
  17. 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)

  19. Its just something to fill the summer fodder of meaningless articles.
  20. We are not good enough yet dont place this at the coaches feet Benning is the fall guy
  21. 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.
