  1. [PGT] St. Louis Blues vs. Vancouver Canucks

    If Tanev and Stecher come back, I'd like to see Edler and Hutton out of the line-up until one of those having a bad game. This is just to send a message to Edler that his play is undesirable and must be better. Bonehead plays are not acceptable and he made plenty of them. I just don't see what coach Green sees in him in a small sample. Newell has something to do with it? He coached for Edler in 2011 so it's possible for this explanation. Time for Green to step in and scratch him.

    Wanted to add the thoughts, until Kelly Sutherland, Tim Peel, and other ref likeness of their characteristic is out of the league, the league will reward them. We really need a fresh blood on a new crop of officiating department, rather than keeping the old boys club over there. The same can be said for the linesman, they can be corrupt as well.

    Green has to say nice things by crediting the Blues for the comeback but he will not say that against the ref until he will use that ammo to use it in the future for any big-time botched calls by the ref. He already gave his piece of his mind right after and there's no point in continuing that after the game. The ref will always remember little things and might actually rewards the team in the future to spite the league after years and years of blatant game management. There will always be one of the ref out there in the league that does not like the way the league conduct their business in the refereeing department. The ref group might feel bad about how they handled this botched calls and will do us a favor in one big moment later. If they doesn't do that, they have no heart for any of their profession if they keep doing that.

    Keep your eyes for Watson playoff assignment. If he makes it there, this league is a joke.
  5. [PGT] St. Louis Blues vs. Vancouver Canucks

    It should be Blues 3 Canucks 4 Ref taken away 1 and giveth Blues 1
  6. I wish they could challenge an offside call but they brought it out to the neutral zone on purpose to gain some advantage so that they cannot really challenge that missed offside. It's something that NHL should allow this on a certain missed calls in previous possession then brought it out then come back with clear to make that shot for the winner by the Blues.
  7. Never liked his play. Just healthy scratch him when Tanev comes back to send a message.
  8. They pretend to hold the official in the public by rewarding the playoff assignment as a part of their accountability when it's not the case most of the time. They just like the ref that does their dirty work to help the business as a reward. They would just give lips service saying that they are being accountable when it's not the case. A true accountability would be: suspend a ref for a blatant calls and make this public and we knows their accountability.
  9. Also, hand pass is allowed in their own zone and it should not been whistled down until the puck touches the sticks, not the hand.
  10. If it's hand pass, then there should be a penalty if you wanted to appease the Canucks but you didn't ... massive fail by ref.
  11. The league needs to be investigated by authority, not NHL, but DOJ, and Canadian branches of justice department to investigate NHL. I have been calling for this investigation for a long time but nothing taken. The NHL better do something about this one. Enough is enough. Maybe calling for a boycott where there's empty seats across Canada when a game is on to send a message that this is unacceptable bias of work here.
  12. Should be able to challenge a too-many men if they scored on the rush.
  13. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    I would only bring Sedin back only if Goldobin, Patterson, Lind, Dahlen, Gadjovich is not ready to make the team is what it is in my mind. It has nothing to do with Horvat, Boeser, Stecher, Bartschi, Sutter and Dorsett not stepping up. We all knows what they can bring but the prospects are unknown and doesn't want to leave a hole in our line-up and rush our prospects if they are not ready. It also easier to stomach for one year if no UFA is found after first few days of UFA. I'm sure that other teams might be interested but Sedins are not interested to play for other NHL team, only Canucks or Modo. If I'm Benning, I would talk to them about his intention of using them in their roles including being a part of the management team and Sedin would be more than happy to help the Canucks prepare for their next stage whether it be playing one more season or in some kind of a role in the front office or different roles in coaching teaching about the art of Sedinery and open up with their playbooks. Training camp is a funny business on the method of making the team and oftimes a promising prospects failed to produce during that stage or is injured and no way of showing what he can do (Dahlen's mono) but is able to produce in other league after the camp is over. When this happens, he would have to wait a long while before given an opportunity to play in his debut. Sometimes we miss an opportunity with our own prospects. No way of calling them up once they play well unless if they are in AHL.
  14. Healthy goaltending rotation or soon to be Nilsson's spot?!!

    I would rather to see Nilsson play more before declaring anything. I reserve my judgment until then. We all know that Markstrom can leak in a soft goal from time to time to go with many good saves so it's mixed bags. On other hand, Nilsson does not allow soft goals but did once on LA game but rest of goals allowed were either no chance or defense left him to dry, (Boston game). I still need to see more games against the type of Crosby, McDavid, etc. Markstrom can be shaky from long distance shots or tipped goals. I can see Nilsson taking over if Markstrom continues to allow soft goals. If both cannot cut to be a NHL goaltender, we have Demko waiting in the wing for a shot to prove that he is the man in the crease.

    Sedin won't be back next year is which I'm happy about but Edler has one more year left in his contract which will give us another year of headaches. Two options in this situation: try to convince him to waive the NTC and if he refuses, buy him out as another option but will gladly take 2 years of reduced cap hits at 1.5 million dollars. It is better than 5 million cap hit next season so would save a lot of money and would help the Canucks to find about 17.5 million of cap space in time for next summer. That should be the last resort if Edler refuses to accept a trade this coming trade deadlines and Benning would have to convince the owner that he is not worth it and cost us a few games due to his bad performance at times. If you ask me to assess his value, his value would be at around 2 million to 3 million, not 5 million on the cap hits. I am not sure how he managed to fetch that money and term for what he brings to this club. This will send a serious message to any underperforming veterans but it will not apply to Eriksson due to signing bonus in which we must pay with more years added so we are stuck with him until he is traded or until end of his contract. So this will end the entitlement right after this season if Benning felt that he has seen enough of Edler's play. However, I wouldn't mind Sedin back at a reduced rate, not 7 million of his current salary. Maybe 2 million for both giving us about 10 million cap space. That is only if it's one year deal and Benning thinks that our young players are not ready to step up and failed to land a bigger fish in UFA pool.
