  1. Gustav Forsling Talk

    I like that Gus is almost as young as Virtanen. Still just 18 years old and loads of time to develop into a strong PMD. Five points in the SEL so far bodes well for such a young player.
  2. Santorelli was one of the few bright spots in a bleak year. I was surprised he didn't get re-signed, and I expect it was due to some rift or disagreement rather than the money or term. Still, I wish it had happened. He would have rounded out our top 6 nicely. I for one don't regret the Vey trade. He's been solid, and he's much younger than Santo. I think he'll be a solid 2nd liner for us down the road.
  3. [Official] 2014-15 Utica Comets Thread.

    So when does Sanguinetti get a look? 14 points in 22 games and a real cannon (something we seem to lack this season).
  4. Green Men announce that this is their last season

    No Fun Vancouver indeed! Do you also hate puppies and sunshine and bacon? What a bunch of complainers. The Green Men are fantastic, I loved their shticks. Vancouver needs more passionate fans, not less.

    Bo will be fine. I do think he'll end up back with London this season though, they just want him to soak up some AHL experience.
  6. Dane Fox Talk

    Foxy now sits at 7 points in 5 games. Blomstrand also with 7 in 5, and Curtis Valk is leading the ECHL with 9 points. Sounds like quick chemistry for that young group. All three seem too talented to play in that league for long. That said, the Comets seemed stacked at the moment. Can we have two AHL teams?
  7. Darren Archibald Talk

    I've always really liked Archie. I think he's got a decent shot at a permanent 4th line role this year. He's got the size the team wants, and a bit of scoring touch. Why not?
  8. I'd love for Vancouver to select Ritchie at 6. Ehlers would be great too. Virtanen is someone I'd love to select at 10, if we trade for that pick.
  9. Ehlers yes, Nylander no. Nylander apparently has attitude issues, and I don't think he has the game breaking skill that Ehlers does. I also think Ritchie is underrated in the speed and skill departments. I'd be happy if we selected him at 6.
  10. Hunter Shinkaruk Talk

    Agree with Kesler for Etem + 10th and drafting Virtanen. Ritchie - Virtanen and Horvat - Shinkaruk sets us up so nicely for the next 10 years!
  11. Draisaitl vs Dal Colle

    I'm just hoping one of the big 5 drop. I feel like there's a significant talent dropoff from there.
  12. I think Gilman is a no brainer. Cap compliance is a big deal in building a competitive team. He's had success in Phoenix and now here. I think he's underrated and should be given first preference.
  13. [Report] Mike Gillis Fired

    Realistically? Not many. Canucks have a history of promoting from within (AV, Nonis). But who knows?
  14. [Report] Mike Gillis Fired

    I think Laurence Gilman will be our next GM. Smart, cap savvy and lots of experience. Not a flashy move, but a good one.
  15. [Report] Bob Nicholson in Vancouver

    I actually think Laurence Gilman will be given a shot. He's done a great job as our capologist. I could see Naslund in the mix too, given his Modo experience.
