  1. Congratulations Tony Tanti on jersey retirement!

    From the stories I have heard, he was unbelievable at tipping pucks. Some guys challenged him. They started off firing easy pucks right at the net. He didn't miss any. At the end they were firing them at his head, behind him and even at his behind. Still tipped them all. I believe it may have been John Garret who shared this story. But that was an awful long time ago.
  2. Really don't like Dorsett. The last season he was over paid for what he brought. Right now his pace is unrealistic and will level off. He is penalty minute leader and that is something to be worried about. I am happy he is healthy and contributing. May he have continued success.
  3. Yet another Sedin Stat - Daniel.

    I have watched a LOT of games in my time. The Sedins get less than zero respect from the league and refs. The amount of penalties they get assessed as well as how many should be called against them that aren't. Makes me beyond upset at the officials.
  4. Yet another Sedin Stat - Daniel.

    It took a bit of work there are close to 7000 players, that is a lot of pages of data. So it took a little work, but not really that long.
  5. Well over the years I love to dig out all kinds of weird stats for the twins. This is a kind of short one on Daniel. 6865 players have played in the NHL. 3940 players have scored a game winning goal. 800 players have scored one. 1452 have scored 10 737 have scored a quarter of a season worth of wins. (21 round up) 233 have scored half a seasons worth and a plethora of Canucks are right there. Linden, Bert, Morrison, Gelinas and a few more at 41 Only 62 players have three quarters of a season worth of GWG. Daniel is in exclusive company of 82 Game Winning Goals. He is the 32nd player to hit this number. A few gooad active players ahead of him, but few anywhere near him. So he should move up the list a bit more. I think that is pretty awesome to think you have been part of winning that many games for your team. Wish I could see a break down of most for a team. He could be right up there. Anyways hope you like the Cliff Claveness of this.
  6. I really don't. (It's not just a proposal)

    It's the coach it is not the team. Dumping pucks into goalies that are great puck handlers is the stupidest strategy. Hiring a power play coach that was amazing, but has him doing the same thing we've seen since he's been gone is ridiculous. Vanek and Lou playing anywhere but the 3 or 4th line is stupid. The Sedin's may be slow, but they are world class smart. The other two are just worn out. Do something, then you deserve good time on top lines. This has been an ugly start to the season, and no one is to blame except the coach and his team
  7. Why do you watch?

    This this and this.^^^^^^^^^ My earliest memories of my grandparents were listening to the Canucks on the radio. Dennis Kearns was her favourite player. We used to leaf through all the yearly team booklets. As kids we'd laugh at the pictures.
  8. The curious case of Brock Boeser

    Vanek = Correct Eriksson = Correct Sedin's = are you daft? Seriously I hope someone comes into your job and tells you to pack up your crap because you no longer matter. Even though you are still doing as good or better than everyone else there. You could have been the best employee that they have ever had and made the company better than it ever has been. But we want to make way for people who just aren't able to cut it if you are here (lower the bar and it's easy for people to look good) So tired of this mentality.
  9. The Eye-Test Vs. Corsi: Canucks Game 1

    1. Most importantly, CORSI does not adjust for strength of competition, which is a huge factor. The difference between going up against the McDavid line and going up against the Edmonton bottom 6 is huge in terms of expected CORSI. The Sutter line was able to keep the McDavid line from scoring, forcing them into a lot of missed shots, blocked shots, and low percentage shots, all of which count in CORSI. They did a great job. The Sedin line played the Edmonton bottom 6 about even -- which is not such a great accomplishment. There are some attempts to adjust for quality of competition but they are woefully inadequate. The explanation is long, but it is very hard to adjust properly for quality of competition. This entire paragraph makes me laugh. Mainly because of all the whiners about the new guys should be line 1. The Sedin's have fought against the toughest lines all their career and flourished. Now the new blood is facing tougher competition and are looking flat. Shows you really how good the Sedin's are and continue to be. The will not go quietly into the night!
  10. Well since no one picked this option. I really don't want to, but we get shut out. (I want Danny to score it though)
  11. Wow can't believe the stats Edler has piled up. Maybe one day we will have a superstar Dman who will knock off all those records.
  12. Good feel story

    Say what Say who Alex and the city crew. Just to good to pass up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2otNQA0Y0I
  13. Good feel story

    Good stoner feels!
  14. [Signing] Jagr to Flames

    Well it's so fitting. Jagr gets to play at the home of the Flying Jagr's. Now the boys can take in a ton of games. Pretty sure that was one of the bonuses in the contract.
  15. Make Sedins Healthy Scratches This Season

    My first thought was to give you a -1. But I save those for people who have significantly more posts. Then again if I don't see any worse posts I will definitely come back and give you a -1.
