  1. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Winnipeg Jets

    Sweden should be scheduling their games at a more appropriate time. Don't they know that many of us here on the west coast have jobs and can't be lounging around at 9am to watch our phenom slay the rubber? You are being very inconsiderate Mr. Gudmundson. Bugger it, I'm calling in sick for work. Some things are more important then a steady income.
  3. Cool! I like the sounds of his game. Reading that makes it seem less like a knee jerk reaction to the horvat injury, and more like a calculated risk to replace some of the grit that Dors provided. In a interview a few days ago, JB said if a trade to adress team grit made sense he would pull the trigger. Well he did. Welcome aboard nic! I realistically expected Subban to be traded, but assumed we would get a 4th round pick or so with him. A 4th round may never play a game, and Nic will play for the canucks, so to me this feels like a good trade. What happens to my signed Jordan Subban picture now though...

    You choose McCann over Barkov?

    SO HOW ABOUT THAT ELIAS PETTERSSON KID EH? THAT GUY IS SOME KIND OF HOCKEY PLAYER I TELL YOU WHAT! TRUELY SOMETHING SPECIAL! Apologies for yelling, but this thread is one of the few sacred places of positivity left on CDC.Let's keep the childish name calling to a minimum yeah?
  7. Dorsett not returning to active roster

    He is a true warrior. I wish him all the best in his health and to his family. It's going to be a huge blow to the canucks this year loosing him, few players in the league play as hard as he does night in and night out.
  8. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    He is currently slaughtering the SHL as a winger. He's currently playing the best hockey of his young career, one could argue he thrives on the wing. While I too hope he develops into our franchise center, I won't loose sleep at night if he finalizes as a winger (as long as we aquire a 1C one way or another)

    1) I don't have any exact quotes or numbers to back this up but I heard it on 650 or 1040 at some point in the last bit. The talking heads were saying since coming back from his injury he was I believe 2nd in 5v5 points behind Mathews, I think? Again don't quote me I could be wrong, but if that's correct I would say roughly a year of solid play could show growth in a young player. Not saying he will always have those numbers, but I think it would be reasonable to predict him at a 60-70 point player into his prime years. 2) If he was a pure offensive player I would agree. He bring more to his line then just a good pass or shot. He brings physicality. On a top line with 2 seemingly elite players I think what he brings is perfect. 3) See! He's all ready a canuck haha. Kidding aside. Good point. With his physical game he could miss game later in his career for sure. 4) very fair, great point. 5) You don't know that. Vancouver is a gorgeous city and his home town. He very well could want to come home. But he also seems to love money.. that's a toss up. 6) Agreed. It's risky. He seems to have grow up recently though. Maybe being home would help him mature further, maybe being a celebrity in his own town could ruin him. It's a risky situation, but one I would be willing to take for his skill set. You make alot of great points, but I still want him. I think he would be a fantstic addition to the cup winning team JB is building.That being said, if we could sign Tavares instead... sign me up for that!

    You said elite skills. When Kane is on his game he has the ability to be one of the premier wingers in the league. I would personally consider both he physical play and his shot in the elite category for a 1st line winger. His 42 hits this season would lead our forwards in that department. I would gladly bring home a true power forward to play with 2 players who are projecting to have elite level offensive skills. Not to mention his 23 points would also lead the canucks.

    No worries, he's coming.
  12. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. New York Rangers

    I'm far more out off by no Eriksson in the shootout. He's currently on a hot streak and his shot has been whistling. I have said all I need to say about the other subject. If you don't see where I'm coming from, then I'm not going to bother trying to show you otherwise.
  13. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. New York Rangers

    "There has been nothing but positivity coming from my mouth as of late because the team is doing well and our young players are doing well" Well I'll agree with you there. I would have also been fine with seeing JV on the ice it OT but I wasn't put off he wasn't out there. He still needs alot more work defensively
  14. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. New York Rangers

    I could not agree more. I technically agree with what 5ths saying. Just not when and how has saying it if has going to later complain about being called a troll. It was an unnecessary comment tonight. JV was on the ice in the final minutes, that's a leap in the right direction at least for this game.
  15. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. New York Rangers

    I have nothing to get over. Just stop moaning and complaining in the JV thread about people calling you a troll for being perpetually negative. What you may find to be the truth is often uncalled for. If he has a bad game, sure, call him out on it. But managing to find something to complain over after a great game is why people call you a troll.
