  1. Have you changed your mind on this season? (Discussion)

    Well considering I bet a coworker that the Canucks would make the playoffs, we're on track with what I was thinking was quite possible. Boeser, however, is certainly surpassing my expectations.
  2. Benning is doing a great job! (Discussion)

    I don't. I expect him to not have to be playing. As a fill in he's fine. My point was the guy I quoted's comment that Biega killed it.
  3. Benning is doing a great job! (Discussion)

    Can't say I'm a big fan of Biega regardless, though. Like Weaver, Fitzpatrick, or whoever else we've had in that role, he can play fine, but will likely never be a player that will be productive. Even with his multiple rushes to the front of the net against Dallas, none of them seemed particularly dangerous. That's not to say that he can't improve that skill, but I see more a frantic player, not fully aware of what he should do in those situations (and lacking offensive awareness), than one with the sense to know how best to handle the offensive situations he gets into.

    Thanks for keeping this updated

    In the general sense, yes. I personally think the idea of someone having a specific IQ is a bit flawed to begin with, though. You can learn to improve your mental capacity and natural tendency to do specific things. I suppose the range of increase a person can have on their "IQ" is limited, though, like that one person posted. No matter how hard I try, I'm not going to have the mental intelligence of Einstein

    Some level of "hockey IQ" (which I'd prefer to call awareness) can be taught. you can teach a player how to better prepare and what to think about before going onto the ice, as well as how to react in certain situations, which players don't necessarily think about and coaches don't seem to often instill. Innate high hockey awareness is a valuable skill, but learning to be better at it is something every player should do. The process of becoming better at being aware of what needs to be done takes time and practice, but it can certainly improve as I've experienced it in multiplayer gaming myself.
  7. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    The return should be good. Currently wearing my 'Nucks Burrows jersey
  8. [PGT] Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Sad to see the refs give the Oilers 2 free powerplays (a hip check is not a penalty, nor is whatever Stecher got a penalty for), though I'm not 100% sold on the powerplay we got from Klefbom taking down Dorsett (I think it was Klefbom), though that one's pretty much a 50/50
  9. TSN 1040 Interview with Chris Higgins

    You could make that hindsight if Vigneault actually adjusted. The Canucks just continued to play the same way the whole series, multiple years in a row, while the Hawks adjusted.
  10. TSN 1040 Interview with Chris Higgins

    Can't say I agree with his assessment of Vigneault. Vigneault's biggest problem in the playoffs was being unable to adapt to Chicago changing their style of play

  13. Canucks blow the minds of the Canadian media, winning 7-2
  14. Canucks set opening night roster

    A little disappointed Archibald got sent down, but I'm sure injuries will give him the opportunity to get signed to a contract and come up. Looking forward to the start of the season.
  15. Olli Juolevi | D

    It'd be very good for Juolevi to learn from Salo. Definitely one of the best if not the best defenseman the Canucks have ever had. Extremely good in his own zone and solid in the offensive end as well. Really liked the mic'd up stuff from Salo during the prospects camp at the beginning of summer. Hope Juolevi would be able to absorb his teaching, if he goes to Finland.
