  1. Can't stand the TSN 1040 Morning Show

    Botchford actually makes that show worth listening to, IMO. Don't agree with everything he says, but he makes for interesting listening. Wayyy better than Bro Jake. Or Pratt.
  2. Quinn Hughes Vs Rasmus Dahlin!

    Posting to say that nobody is in the right when a thread sucks this much. It started by sucking and it somehow got worse as more people posted in it...
  3. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    In regards to Benning on the hot seat, I believe that ownership (understandably) does not have much patience for losing. In particular, I think ownership expects that, if they are going to spend to the cap each and every year, that they should be able to ice a team that makes the playoffs more than 50% of the time. I don't blame Aquaman if he holds those expectations. If you are spending to the cap each year, and are not making the playoffs more than 50% of the time, you are probably looking at a management issue. On the other hand, if you accept the "rebuilding" justification (that it takes a few years of missing the playoffs to end up making them consistently), then you shouldn't have to spend to the cap during the rebuild. If you are spending to the cap just to finish last, then that is also a sign of poor management.
  4. Canucks Top Ten prospects (Updated for 2018-2019)

    Best nicknames since Ray Verbatim. Also, JB please sign JVR to fill the LW hole. Thanks
  5. 2nd Best Dman in 2018 Draft

    I think the second best defenceman in the draft will end up being K'Andre Miller in 5-7 years. I will leave that here for posterity's sake.
  6. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    Yeah, but you want pricks who are loved by their teammates. Burrows is a great example: his teammates love him, everybody else hates him. I'm not sure even Kane's teammates like him.
  7. Re: Craig Button You guys make some good points about Virtanen, Boeser and Gaudette. Perhaps my criticism of Button is based on outdated experience and (admittedly) inaccurate groupthink
  8. Anyone else really pleased by this? I knew we had some good prospects, but I had always assumed that every other team had prospects that were probably just as good. This list makes me realize that we have more high-end prospects than any other team, and in particular, more than any other Canadian team. (Taken with a grain of salt because it is Craig Button)
  9. Do we have the best 4th line in the league?

    A list of possible comparative 4th lines: CGY: Versteeg - Stajan - Brouwer NYI: Kulemin - Cizikas - Clutterbuck TBL: Kunitz - Dumont - Callahan TOR: Martin - Moore - Marner Canucks are definitely up there with the best.
  10. Team Goal Celebration Issue.

    I recall that at one point, the team even stopped flying by the bench after goals to bump fists. I actually liked that, as I am a fan of "acting like you've been there before" (e.g. was a big fan of Marshawn Lynch's TD "celebrations" where he just shook his teammates hands). Ideally, I would like to see the goal-scorer be subdued but his teammates be excited. I think there is something to be said for the lift in confidence and energy that an athlete gets from seeing teammates be excited for him.
  11. World Cup of Hockey

    Actually, it is a gimmick and bogus because two out of the eight teams cannot possibly "call their country the champion", because Europe and North America are not countries. This tournament has no credibility as a meaningful international hockey event because of the gimmick teams. It is exciting exhibition hockey and nothing more. Get two real countries in there instead. Imagine if a soccer fan who knew nothing about hockey asked who won the World Cup: "Oh, North America won, which is players from the USA and Canada, but it wasn't their best players, it was only the players under 23. They beat team Europe, which is all the best players of any age from any country in Europe that isn't Finland, Sweden, Russia and the Czech Republic". It's a joke.
  12. PGT Coyotes 1 Canucks 0

    Wow. I was actually expecting a really inspired effort after what happened in LA and Anaheim. This was surprising and disappointing. I thought this team had more heart and character - I guess I was wrong.
  13. [PGT] ducks won

    Obviously a terrible outcome, but I don't have a huge problem with it. We were playing pretty even with them until the game got out of hand with unlucky bounces (1st goal), and an own goal (Hamhuis). I didn't hate the way the Canucks played in this game actually, and of course, once it was 4-0 (and the shots were even at that point), the Canucks sort of gave up and took a lot of penalties. This stuff happens and I'm not too worried about the team. What worries me the most, however, is that Devorski is handing out 7 minute penalties, openly calling Kassian an asshole (plus throwing him out of games for no reason) and, for those of you who didn't notice, Devorski went over to the Ducks bench and had a laugh with Getzlaf right after he called the 7 minute 5-on-3 and got chewed out by Tortorella (go to 1:55 of Makaveli's video to see it - that video cuts it off early, but it really bugged me that Devorski would go laugh with the opposition after clearly infuriating the Canucks). What if we get this guy in the playoffs? I have no faith that there won't be bias and that Kassian won't get thrown for nothing.
  14. [PGT] NHL Team 4-0 AHL Team

    You're wrong. This is what happened, Gagner said something to Kassian, Kassian made the "what's this?" comment, then Gadzic went nuts because it was a pretty low blow, and so Kassian chirped Gadzic back. Anyway, the incident itself isn't a big deal, I just think it's important that we don't lose our objectivity when being fans.
  15. [PGT] NHL Team 4-0 AHL Team

    Astounding. Simply astounding. It is so incredibly clear that Kassian is chirping at Gagner. Deb, your homerism is off the charts. In the screen cap of the video that you posted, you can see Gagner's jaw visor on the right side of the frame. I am 100% positive that if the roles were reversed, all of you would be saying that it was a gesture about the jaw protector. And you would be right, because that's what happened. Seriously people, I've been on this forum for more than 10 years, I don't post often, but I get so frustrated by your blatant bias and whining, I have to respond. It's getting worse and worse. Back in 2003, this kind of insanity was much more rare. It's concerning and embarrassing. Kassian was mocking Gagner. Doesn't really matter much, but don't pretend it didn't happen.
