  1. Jake Virtanen | #18 | Right Wing

    While I agree with this (ie: longer leash), it's pretty apparent that Jake comes out snarling and then slowly takes his pace and intensity down ... I'd so much rather see him in the lineup than a guy like Gagner, but it might still be a couple or three years before Jake can train himself to play at peak intensity all the time. I can't think of other power forward examples of that except Bertuzzi, it took him years to consistently be the force he became...prior to that he would be great for a period and invisible for 5...I'd sure be happy if this tough love could generate the same type of force in Virtanen
  2. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    And everyone else on that leaderboard list are proper vets too. Sure he needs to get stronger, but he's not playing against men like NCAA "men", these are 30 year old dudes.
  3. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    That's pretty freaking spectacular. I think Nylander is an absolutely outstanding young player (duh). Elias is about 6 months older perhaps there's a bit of a tempering to be done in the comparison, but wow, i'm pretty excited to see if Elias can make this translate into NHL play.
  4. Nikita Tryamkin | D

    To be fair, the whole organization called out that same coach by firing him.
  5. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    Recycle more?
  6. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    Maybe if he could score more points
  7. [PGT] Dallas Stars vs. Vancouver Canucks

    the very near future, belieeeeve
  8. Thomas Vanek | #26 | Right Wing

    Yeah kinda polarizing, but when Virtanen is polarizing he gets two different threads each with hundreds of pages of arguing...Vanek hasn't even hit page 2 yet!
  9. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    That's so freaking badass. Have we had a prospect with this much hype since Bure? Did the Sedins even have this much energy following them? Probably, but I don't remember. Seriosuly though, how could a 19 year old kid keep a straight head with thousands of people chanting your praises?
  10. Derrick Pouliot | #5 | Defenceman

    I would say Green-Pouliot looks to be working out better than the Willie-Vey connection. I wonder if he takes Stecher's spot on the right side? Or does Biega draw in more consistently if none of our LHD's are ideal on the right?
  11. The real Jan broke her hip! ( Recovery MODE)

    Very sorry to hear, all the best in a speedy recovery. I'm actually going through a somewhat similar scenario, my wife just had back surgery with a 2-3 month recovery. We just straight up couldn't do it right now without the help and care of dear family members and friends. If you've got them, feel blessed and lean on them.
  12. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Buffalo Sabres

    it was nice to see some comets jerseys in the crowd!
  13. Jordan Subban | D

    as a man who kind-of-believes that posters actually look like their profile pic, I had you pegged as an old-ish, balding white dude just like me, haha
  14. Meanest things your parents have ever said to you

    My parents were talking about me once when I was about seven; my mom said to my dad,"He tells jokes just like your dad, first he tells the joke then he starts laughing his head off at his own joke" My dad says, "Yeah, but at least some of my dad's jokes are funny" I've stopped laughing at my own jokes, but I'm still unfunny.
  15. [PGT] Winnipeg Jets vs. Vancouver Canucks

    To be fair, the comparison was between two random, cherry-picked games to project the two careers, so it all evens out.
