  1. There is no substitute for size. The Canucks could have had to large guys playing D but have botched it. The biggest problem with Canucks is management over thinking it. They are not genius's that for sure. Put the C on the player that deserves it (Horvat) bring Pedan on the D and things will start to fall into place but the Sedins could also be split up at times. Another player that can do it all and is miss used is Sutter.
  2. The "TV TIME-OUTS" are too many and too long. This is good though, because WD doesn't like to use time-outs.
  3. What ever happened to Pedan ? Yeah Edler is still Edler. The Sedins though are tired I think. When are they going to give the C to Horvat ? The biggest problem is WD and his "game plan". He is awful at adapting to game situations. He tries to stick to his crappy game plans. The goal tending is the only thing good about this team right now. It is boring and the crowd has less volume than the yelling refs.
  4. Even with a coach like WD they win some games or are in some games but imagine if they had a real good coach. They would probably be near the top of their division. WD is liked I think so nobody is identifying his deficiencies. Its amazing how quiet broadcasters or commentators are about this guy.
  5. Pedan should have been playing all along this season. What the heck is WD doing relying so heavily on the small guy Stetcher who is skilled and smart but can only do so much. Pedan is not favoured by WD it seems but neither was the Tryamkin. WD has no clue. He just goes by his clip board plan. You can even see how he clings to his clip board. WD has screwed up more games than the players. The players have won some games in spite of the coach.
  6. Well Pedan would have been better than Edler last night I'm sure but WD prefered Edler. He doesn't want too many big guys on his team. He wants to go according to his trusted clip board. Edler has decent size but his defence is seriously lacking. Miller saved WD's butt last night. The sad part about the Canucks are; there are some good parts, but right now the worst parts are; the president, GM, and coach.
  7. Don't want to many big guys on the D it might screw up the chemistry.
  8. Management could care less about this forum. They are content with a few empty seats and like their coach.
  9. The NHL does not want the play to keep moving; they only want lots of commercials which slow down the game and ruin it. The refs also don't get out of the way any more, actually impeding the game, but being more a part of it. That is what they want in the new NHL. The best game are always the ones with less stoppages and less ref involvement. They should go back to one ref, and no game decisions being made mega miles away. I hate games where the refs are "playing" the game instead of reffing it.
  10. No its just the new NHL has refs that want to be noticed feeling like they are part of the game. Weird because they don't get out of the way like in the good old days where fans are not supposed to notice the refs . Now they almost interfere with play.
  11. Actually we need more TV commercial breaks that way WD for sure won't be afraid to challange a call perhaps losing his time out that he almost never uses anyway.
  12. No we need more refs !
  13. Don't know about that . '94 was another questionable series for Canucks but New York needed a Cup because they had been without one for 40 years. In 2011 the Canucks had been without a Cup for 41 years.
  14. The Canucks haven't been a gritty team since losing the Stanley Cup to Boston in Vancouver. That should have been a sign to the owner. In short the owner was out ownered in that one. Since 2011 there has not been the needed toughness built into rebuillding but rather a plan to get faster and more skilled. It didn't matter that the team was weaker. Any tough gritty guys were dropped. Hansen one of the faster grittier players they have is now out because of a knee on knee play un-noticed or ignored by everyone. Whatever as poor as WD is, he has no toughness on his team. He is in way over his head with a weak team. More seats will be empty from now on. It does no good having a fast skilled team of little old men with one huge guy and one small D man who is over worked. Torts is doing well though. Good for Columbus !
  15. I hate the way they ref now. Who came up with the brilliant idea to have refs doing all the talking (yelling) in a game. The refs are not team players. Its almost like, "Who's side are they on anyhow?" They are supposed to be neutral. No wonder the players don't communicate anymore. The refs are doing all the talking. Then they can't even make a call in a game. They have to call over the phone to determine the correct call. The NHL has ruined the game of hockey.
