  1. Completely agree with your whole post, and as far as Patersons tweet, I see nothing wrong with getting 7 out of 10 points, sure 10 out of 10 would have been better but like you said "We can't win them all"
  2. I wonder if any of those guys even watch the Canucks when you look at the teams they put ahead of them I think these are much better power rankings https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/nhl-standings-power-rankings-gm-challenges-toronto-maple-leafs/ https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/nhl-standings-power-rankings-rookie-class-calder/
  3. They are doing amazing, right now the Canucks have the second best goals against in the league and the 3rd best goal differential, it's early in the season but still very exciting.
  4. I want to see more of Leivo, Bo and Jake, thought they looked really good when they were together in the 3rd, be interesting to see if they throw them out together the next game.
  5. I like our goals against and goal differential, both top 5 in the league, it's early yet but a good start
  6. It's to bad he never played for the Leafs, he would easily get a job at Sportsnet or TSN, all jokes aside nothing wrong with a man making an honest living.
  7. It was Matt Bartkowski mom and the whole interview was pretty funny https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/canucks-beth-bartkowski-mom As far as the OP question I am quite happy with how Pearson is working out, looks like him and Bo might have some good chemistry. At the time of the trade with Florida I was really happy, we needed someone big and tough back there on defense, it's too bad he didn't work out.
  8. When I watch his highlights he reminds me of Stan Smyl, he never quits, seems like he's everywhere
  9. When I saw that live on TV I thought it was a freeze frame until his eyes moved lol
  10. This is an article from Jan 5 2019 https://thehockeywriters.com/international-hockey-iihf-nhl-sized-ice-fasel/ Fasel said the world governing body for hockey is considering moving all international competitions to smaller, NHL-sized ice surfaces. He believes the smaller ice can contribute to the fan’s excitement and emotions. “More and more now when we are watching the games, especially the juniors here in Canada, maybe one of the reasons the tournament here is on a very high level, maybe, is the size of the small ice,” said Fasel on Saturday ahead of the medal games at the world junior hockey championship in Vancouver.
  11. That was a trade deadline deal, if I remember right, so I think you are right, this is one of their better off season for making deals
  12. That game against the Habs was amazing, the thing I will never forget about that game was Kirk McLean getting a standing ovation from the Montreal fans when he was named first star, I still get goose bumps thinking about that one. Mclean should have won the Vezina that year but it went to Roy instead.
  13. Wow, what a ride this has been, thank you to every one that has posted updates and videos of the games, really appreciate it. It has been just amazing watching the season this kid has had.
