  1. Brock Boeser Talk

    I had heard Nashville had Horvat rated that high but when Jones slid it was a no brainer.

    Vic is my grandpa. So yeah, I've been around hockey for a while.
  4. Which nhl players or folk have you met in person?

    Hey Joe, my cousin used to tour all over north America with robbie. As for nhlers, I do see Dan quite often. I'm also really looking forward to meeting Bobby Orr in a couple weeks. A lot of celebrities coming this year. Orr, ronning, snepts, and maybe best of all, the "Hansen brothers"
  5. PDF: (1) Anaheim Ducks vs (3) Calgary Flames

    Apollo, I understand being upset at the way Kesler left but really? "gutless scum?" The guy plays with a ton of heart and gives everything he has every shift. Now I think the trade was fairly even when you factor in Sbisa and McCann but to say Bonino is just as good as Kesler is ridiculous. You can't tell us that Kesler wouldn't have made a huge difference in that series against Calgary.....
  6. GAMEDAY -- I made a video :)

    Awesome vid. I was wondering if you could make a video like this to Centuries by Fall Out Boy. It just seems like the perfect song for one of these videos and I have no idea how to put one together.
  7. Eddie Lack as our number 1.

    I don't think there is much question that Miller is the more technically sound goalie of the two. At the same time, I think the Canucks would be crazy not to start Lack in game 1 next week. That would be like Ottawa not starting Hammond, teams need to ride the hot hand. I do however think that as soon as Lack faulters, the crease will Millers and he'll likely have a bit longer leash than Lack mainly because of his history.
  8. Study: Many hockey helmets unsafe

    the M11 was the original "messier project" helmet which sold-out to Bauer and that's why it seems like Mitchell has switched. It's actually the same helmet but they're all limited as to how much protection they actually provide. I've been using this same helmet for three years now but I'm just finally getting over a concussion from an accidental collision in a game 4 weeks ago. I can tell you, hiding in the dark with no tv or anything gets pretty boring after about 4 or 5 days.
  9. [Extension] - Chris Tanev, 5 more years

    This is a great deal for Tanev and the Canucks. I've seen some comments here about how the Canucks overpaid and that he'd only be worth this amount if he was putting up 40+ points a year. Well, in reality, if he was doing that and still playing the kind of defense that he is now, he'd be more like a 6.5 or 7 million dollar defenseman.
  10. Bo Horvat Talk

    I really like Horvat's chances of making the team this year. The number one reason for this is Coach Desjardins' comments last week on the team 1040. He said "If it's a tie, then for sure you go with the young guy. That just makes sense because you want to develop and you want to get them in there" and at this point in Horvat's young career I can't see him not beating out Sestito or Dorsett. I could even see him beating out Richardson and Vey.
  11. Canuck scouts taking a back seat

    Yes, because you obviously know more about him than Gradin.....
  12. 6th Pick: 2014 NHL Entry Draft

    I think the 6th pick depends entirely on what the return for Kesler would be. If he is traded to Anaheim, then I think Fleury should be the pick at 6 and then whichever one of Ritchie, Ehlers, Nylander, or Virtanen is still available at 10. I feel that if they don't take Fleury at 6th overall, there's no way he lasts until 10th being the only d-man (besides Ekblad) ranked in the top 10. 1. FLA - Ekblad 2. BUF - Reinhart 3. EDM - Draisaitl 4. CGY - Bennett 5. NYI - Dal Colle 6. VAN - Fleury 7. CAR - Nylander 8. TOR - Ritchie 9. WIN - Ehlers 10. VAN - Virtanen It just seems like the perfect way to ensure you get a d-man and a forward in the top ten.
  13. I think the another possibility is that the owners have had enough and don't want Gillis calling the shots with the intention of firing him soon or after the season is done. After the goalie fiasco, this wouldn't surprise me considering what Gillis managed to get back for two elite goalies.
  14. [Trade] David Rundblad to Chicago

    https://twitter.com/brianlawton9/status/440916252807016448 Looks like Lawton is 1 for 5
  15. Actually, there are only a couple players on the team that don't really like Torts. They all really respect what he does for them though and I can honestly tell you that most guys including Hamhuis love the coach.
