    [Signing] Canucks sign Mitch Eliot

    I was thinking the exact same thing as Brassard has looked like a diamond in the rough for a 7th rounder and close to PPG player in the OHL. Yet still unsigned which I find very odd. But not taking anything away from Mitch as we definitely need our D corps of prospects to grow, so free prospect is always good.

    This right here! Doesn’t matter if the owners will actually fork out the dough for more talented players but you can’t do that when nobody wants to ruin their knees on the turf we have. We are essentially stuck with this situation unless they can bring in grass to BC place. Sure it would be a headache to maintain but I look at what the Arizona Cardinals do with their grass is they roll it out whenever they have a game and have a place to put it when it’s done so the grass doesn’t get killed by the Arizona heat and sun. But yes that waterfront stadium would fix many of our problems if it went through. It would be a gem of the league with the water looking out to the north shore mountains. But we went with a hole in the roof renovation of the stadium that expo 86 built instead. And we never ever use the upper bowl.

    [PGT] Vancouver Canucks at Nashville Predators | Dec. 13, 2018

    The OT point is not the point that’s impressive, it’s the no quit from this team against a Stanley cup contender in their own barn. OG Brockstar one timer goal and Capt Clutch ties the game to grind out the point. I’m not even mad. I’m actually very proud of our boys! Just imaging how good this team will be in a few years is something that makes this DUDE extatic!

    Petrus Palmu | RW/LW

    Thank you for your input as I have only watched Utica highlights and haven’t seen Palmu play or practice as you have. And I agree that Green when he was in Utica has similar issues when balancing the lineup and not having the trust in the young players. Not every kid is going to make it to the bigs but I thought that Palmu, Gadget and Lind would be some of the kids to excel to the next level. It’s their first year of pro hockey and it’s quite a jump from junior/euro leagues to the AHL but I’m sad by this news and like I said before doesn’t scare the kid from coming back like Tryamkin. But I hope that he goes back to Finland and has a chip on his shoulder and gives it another try. Always good to have an insider on the farm who can see something that most fans can’t.

    Petrus Palmu | RW/LW

    Sure is a hard league when Cull doesn’t play the kids like Gadget, Lind and Palmu. I understand it’s the coaches job to win games and would have more faith in veteran players then to ice a bunch of rookies who would make mistakes. But these AHL vets have no future with the Canucks as these kids do... when you let them play and learn from the mistakes they make. Not easy to balance it all but when management preaches that the AHL is a developing league the coach says something different. Not saying that all young players are getting shafted (Dahlen, OJ, Demko) among others are playing but maybe we are a victim of having too many prospects at once. Palmu is still Canuck property but I hope it doesn’t turn into a Tryamkin situation where we might not see him again. We shall see and hope for the best for these kids and the road to the NHL.

    Fans pour their hard earned money and support for this team while management still thinks it’s in the NASL. Perhaps we should be relegated back into it until we have a proper leader, shaker and mover in charge. I hate to have apathy in our hometown team but sadly it’s come to that and I just can’t care or invest in a team that doesn’t care either. You get what you give Bob and soon enough all you’ll get is an empty stadium and your pink papers.

    [PGT] Vancouver Canucks at Columbus Blue Jackets | Dec. 11, 2018

    Don’t forget with that Hanson trade we got a 4th round pick that turned into Jack Rathbone who is looking like a real gamer and potentially a piece of our future D corps as well. I agree these settle moves are now turning into a great supporting cast to go along with our prime picks. It’s all coming together rather nicely.

    [PGT] Vancouver Canucks at Columbus Blue Jackets | Dec. 11, 2018

    Keep the tank on park because we have won three in a row. Wow Jake half way to 20 now and Petey doing Alien things as always. Leivo again showing he can play in the top 6. Tanev showing some offensive awareness with the passing from the point with Eddy. Just a great overall come from behind win, what’s not to like.
  9. We survived the 2nd period and we are still in it to (tie and) win it. Steal it from Torts! By the way he’s saying “where’s the fox”

    Injury Report: 2018/19 Canucks

    He looks fine to me. I don’t think it would be wise to trade your first line sniper.

    Good lead but don’t let up guys. Jake is playing great with Bo tonight. Both could have a few, nice to see the Ox Scorvat.
