  1. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    For me, not yet. Honestly I believe we should hand it to Tanev. Give Bo and Edler/Boeser the "A"
  2. Yeah they did get beat up, and the refs did put the whistle down. Part of being clutch (imho) is overcoming that stuff. Sedins may be the greatest duo to never win the cup, but just didn't have what it takes to win it all. I think we would have won it that year if we played the smaller Tampa Bay team that blew a 3-1 series lead to the Bruins. That'd be the best matchup for the Sedins to play their game
  3. Yes it's a team game but fact is they only combined for 5pts over 7 games. Danny had a clutch tying goal in game 2 and also had the primary assist in OT to Burrows. Other than that they were completely non existent in the finals.
  4. Because I won't lie and say they were clutch I'm a hater? Lol.. there's lots of superstars that just don't have what it takes to win it all and unfortunately fall into that category. The Sedins imo are the most fun duo in NHL history to watch. The chemistry between these 2 is off the charts and they made some unreal plays, plays that will never be seen again, and I am truly blessed to have witnessed that. However this thread suggests Daniel is most clutch in NHL history? C'mon, seriously? He's crazy good, but deffiently not clutch. Sorry if my opinion offends anyone, but that's how I really feel. They're deffiently HOF worthy!
  5. (DISCUSSION) Bold Predictions...or Wishful Thinking for 2018-2019

    Pettersson and Hughes both in Calder race Boeser pots 30G Eriksson pots 20G We start out hot winning 7 of our first 10 games, but injuries hit, we finish 3rd last, and win Jack Hughes Season successful
  6. If I had to choose a player to score a goal to save a game it'd be Ovechkin If I had to choose a player to score a goal to save my life it'd be BROCK BOESER!!!
  7. I sound like a Sedin hater and I am very far from it, but you have to adjust for the crash and bang playoffs. We were the best team in hockey 2 consecutive years and a big reason for that was the Sedins, but when we needed them most they were easily shut down and we failed to win the cup. If they were so clutch they would of found a way to be clutch for just 1 game (game 7 vs Bruins). Instead we were shutout on home ice, and swept out of round 1 the following year. We've been rebuilding ever since
  8. Regular season downy have many clutch moments unless it's the end of the year fighting for position. Playoffs is where you have your clutch moments and the Sedins just couldn't carry that greatness into the playoffs
  9. As a huge fan of Sedin I'm going to say no. That 22% is impressive but like a poster said above, you could score the 4-0 goal and get the gwg if the other team scores 3 goals AFTER your "clutch?" Goal. Burrows was probably the most clutch on our team, the slaying the dragon was the most clutch goal I've seen from a Canuck since I started following them. Sedins are great but far from clutch, they actually seemed to fade away in those clutch moments which is a big reason we failed to win the cup in 2011. Kesler and Burrows couldn't do it on their own.
  10. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    Dahlen Horvat Pettersson Boeser Hughes Virtanen Gaudette Goldobin Juolevi Stecher I really like our future PP, that PP1 will be deadly!!! Or just imagine this!!! Dahlen Hughes Pettersson Boeser Hughes Virtanen Horvat Goldobin Juolevi Stecher
  11. [Signing] Jets re-sign Connor Hellebuyck

    I can't see him going to the same goalie graveyard Talbot went to. Look how good Dubnyk was after leaving deadmonton
  12. Griffen Molino | C/LW

    Man I thought for sure he'd be a regular 4th line guy here. Wish him the best, hopefully he can get on the NHL roster and ride that cup run they're about to have in Toronto. Hopefully Tanev can be enjoying that too while we make Nylander wait another few years for his big run
  13. Quinn Hughes | D

    Man this kid is really special. I'm actually very glad Detroit picked Zadina. At first I was disappointed but the more I watch of this kid the more I like him. I was really hoping for Boqvist or Zadina but I think Hughes could be better than both. He's by far the most skilled defensive prospect I've ever seen in Vancouver
  14. [Signing] Sabres sign Rasmus Dahlin

    I was talking about Auston Matthews
  15. [Signing] Sabres sign Rasmus Dahlin

    Can't believe we were 1 number off from getting this guy Wernt we just 1 number away from Matthew's as well?
