    Besides the obvious fact that I'm a Canucks fan since 1992, I happen to like bikes, crossfit, snowboarding, international ice hockey, Formula 1 and cars in general as it si my occupation to know them and sell them.

  1. [PGT] Calgary Flames vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Are we out of the 2018 playoffs? Maybe a bit early to judge...
  2. [PGT] Calgary Flames vs. Vancouver Canucks

    I’d like to agree with you on these points you brought up. But I don’t. Loui being an exeption. He is a mistake that management has to live with. That signing spelled danger before the first game. It is a joke to say the Sedins are treating this season as a farewell tour, as we are only for ganes into the season. The notorious slow starters have always improved as the season progresses. It’s unfair to discuss the locker room culture in facts as we dont have a clue to how things are done there behind closed doors. It is also unfair to judge the new coaching staff, as we are four games into the season. PP is struggling and it’s not good, but we are four games into the season. We should be discussing this halfway through the season, not now. New guys, new staff, new systems. It can’t be done in a handfull of games. We might as well adapt the KHL system of firing 1-2 headcoaches per year since they can’t win. And that is a big joke. It’s not like a team that finished 29th a year ago has the capabilities to turn into an intant winner with a new coaching staff in a couple of games. Even the new faceoff and penalty rules play part in all teams start to this season. Also, not in your post, but judging Markström at this point is also premature, because we are four games into the season. Four games.
  3. [PGT] Calgary Flames vs. Vancouver Canucks

    This was a heavy game to watch. This topic too. People are already done with the season, management, owners and the whole team. Players are defined as crap, slow, ugly and what not. We knew this was gonna be tough, and 90% of CDC is turning its back on the team after four games. Gotta love you guys!
  4. We need a #1 goalie...

    Panic much, CDC?
  5. I’ve had it right the last two years, so I’m feeling pretty confident right now. Jake Virtanen
  6. I think there was stuff somewhere on Rodin wanting to play on Sweden if he doesnt crack the NHL roster. Cant remember where i read it tho...

    To go with your Ron Jeremy action figure?
  8. Top point getter by Christmas

    1. Granlund 2. Horvat 3. Sutter 4. Daniel 5. Baertschi as I posted in another thread, I suspect Granlund will break out this year, 30+ goals.
  9. [Official] 2017 Training Camp Thread

    I’ll probably get shot down a bit for making such a bold comparison, but I feel we could have a similar kinda guy in Granlund as we once had in Naslund. Not Naslund the leader, more like Naslund the 36-40 goal scorer. Granlund is a slick but still a keep-it-simle kinda guy that gets into scoring areas and has the finishing touch. Last year, being what it was was for our whole group, was easily a 20-25 goal year if he had stayed healty. With the right linemates (not the Sedins in my mind tho) he is capable of scoring 30-35 goals. Maybe I’m wrong, but thats what I honestly think he can pull of this year.
  10. I did so not expect this. Sounds good to me, but what just happened?
  11. [Official] 2017 Training Camp Thread

    The thing I like about Granlund is the fact he really can slot in on just about any line and still be effective. You can pair him up with Bo or the twins, center the 3rd or 4th and still get quality shifts and good offense out of him. He isn't that flashy, but quietly seems to get the job done pretty well concidering he has had a lot of different linemates all the time.
  12. Tjis is a good signing, Boucher has a lot of potential. If all goes well, he could be a guy that gets similar stats as Granlund. Don't get me wrong, I don't want Granlund gone, but trading him at some point might fetch a good return. And if Boucher can take that spot, It'll give us a good bargaining chip down the road. No downside here other that that we won't be icing all the rookies that everyone is looking forward to seeing. I'm hoping to see our stars I n the making get their shot, but it looks like we'll have to wait for them for another year still. Good thing for them so they can grow, but a long wait for us fans eager to see our new picks on the ice in Vancouver.
  13. Comparing the Benning Drafts

    I think it's gonna be fair to evaluate the 2014 draft in two years. Virtanen will have either shown progression or he'll have faded into the sunset. Same goes for McCann. Nikita will either be here again or lost to the never-ending Russian wasteland. While in the case of Demko, he can be summarized as a really good pick already. Forsling has also proven to be a pretty solid late round pick. And even then, all of them will be at the very beginning of their pro careers even then. What can be stated now as a fact even if not a JB draft, it's pretty safe to say that 2010 was a horrible year for us
  14. I'm personally happy with del Zotto over Sbisa next year. I have been hoping for us to get him for years now, so I'm very excited about this. Would have been nice to have him here a few years ago, but you can't get everything you want right away. I learned this over time when I grew up.
  15. [Signing] Ducks sign Ryan Miller

    I was unhappy with the signing when we gave him 3 years back when we did. But he really grew on me and now that he is gone, it really feels like a big favorite has moved on now. I wish him nothing but the best in Anaheim. They still have a window there to win now and it would actually be pretty awesome if Miller, Kesler and Bikes could get a Stanley cup with them here in the near future.
