  1. THIS IS THE DAY, Canucks get #7

    Buffalo with the top pick. Carolina Second. Montreal third. Guess it paid off for Buffalo to tank this year.
  2. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Arizona Coyotes

    Never even turned the game on last night. Followed it a bit on the Canucks app, but after falling fast asleep during the last Canucks - Coyotes game, I had no interest whatsoever in sitting and trying to watch paint dry. No Boeser - no interest. Sigh. As they say. There's always next year. On a side note. It was a beautiful evening, and so nice to be outside barbequing again.
  3. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Colorado Avalanche

    Edler has already screwed up his own career. Now he's trying to derail Boeser's career before it even gets going per say? Never passes to him when he supposed to, and if he does he telegraphs it so the opposing team has a chance to get two or three players in front of him (Boeser) before he can shoot, and then he sends "that" pass to Boeser with an empty net behind him? Edler is truly an island unto himself. Putz!
  4. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Carolina Hurricanes

    Off work at 4:00 today. Game started at 4:30. Did a quick bit of shopping. Arrived at the corner store to buy some lottery tickets. Discovered it was already 3-0 Carolina. Watched the game at the corner store for about 2 minutes. Was told Boeser wasn't playing. Went home. Cooked dinner. Drank wine. (still) Never turned the game on. Didn't miss it at all. Guess that sums it up in a nutshell. PS: Glad they called up and signed Archibald. Cool.
  5. [Signing] Canucks sign Darren Archibald

  6. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

    Boeser scored. All good. Wasn't a wasted 2 hours.
  7. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Florida Panthers

    Ugh! Hard game to watch. ZERO effort. Hard to figure how they followed up their third period push against Tampa with what we saw tonight. Only really watch to see Bo and Brock play anyway. No points for Boeser tonight. Almost seems like a wasted 2 hours when that happens. Sorry, The Sedins are done. Who cares if they aren't going to make a decision until the offseason. Treat them like they are NOT coming back and make your trade deadline and offseason moves accordingly. PLEASE! Edler.......WTF? Seriously figure out how to get rid of him. Horrible year for Hutton. Wow! Even Tanev looked "off" tonight. Eriksson. Mmmmm. Can't watch 4 more years of that. Geez. I REALLY hope there is some serious player "shuffling" at the trade deadline and during the offseason.
  8. [PGT] Chicago Blackhawks vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Brenden freeking you're kidding me, Gaunce with two? Has to be the Blue Moon - total eclipse. Really?
  9. Congratulations Brock

    Great performance! Congrats Brock!
  10. [PGT] Anaheim Ducks vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Well that was just a big Chaput and nothing else.
  11. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks

    The opposing teams must get the biggest chubby when they see the Sedin's out in OT. Especially with Edler. Why oh why? Geez.
  12. Have you changed your mind on this season? (Discussion)

    The Canucks played their best hockey so far this year with Elder and Eriksson out of the lineup. It was exciting, fast paced hockey, with great transition and puck movement. The Sedin's ice time was limited, and the "youth" really had a chance to shine. Ever Stecher's injury wasn't so bad as Biega jumped in nicely to fill the void. IMHO, the problems began when Edler and Eriksson returned to the lineup, coupled with Gaunce returning from his shoulder surgery. Rusty or not, Gaunce is a typical former first round flop that is a more suited for a career in the AHL instead of the NHL. Hands of stone and no vision on the ice whatsoever. I hope he's traded this year sometime. Edler is simply bad. His decline has been well documented over the past 3 years, but is now laid bare for all to see. His decision making is horridly slow, his passes are ill timed and usually reach their intended target travelling at light speed, (which nobody can handle), and time and time again he tries to play goalie in front of his own goalie with the obvious poor results, and that telegraphed drop pass on the power play should just NEVER be allowed to happen again. EVER! I personally think any of the current prospects in Uttica would be better than Edler right now. Edler is also a TERRIBLE pairing for Pouliot. Eriksson is well, Eriksson I guess. He hasn't really bonded with anybody (even the Sedin's) and all he does is skate up and down the ice shift after shift. He'd be "OK" at 2 million per, but at 6 million per he's simply horrific. Benning's albatross for sure. The side effect of these "vets" slotting back in, is that it has forced Green to increase the Sedins ice time again. As we have seen since 2011, they are on the decline as well, and are now (especially this year) struggling mightily to keep up with the play of the opposition let alone their own teammates. As we have seen in years past, relying more and more on the Sedins is NOT going to get us anywhere near the playoffs. While there is certainly light at the end of the tunnel (for sure) there are still some very dark areas that need to be addressed with trades or contracts running out. IMHO the Sedins should NOT be resigned at any price, and every effort should be made to convince Edler to go elsewhere. If, for some reason we are stuck with him until his contract expires I wouldn't resign him even if he paid the Canucks to stay. The Sedins have served the Canucks well over the years and deserve full credit, accolades, etc., for their amazing careers. Unfortunately father time has caught up with them and I feel any service they have left to give the Canucks would be much better off the ice than on the ice.
  13. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Thank you Henrik and Daniel. You have been great over the years, but seriously, this needs to be your last year. Edler please say yes to anything but continuing in a Canucks uniform. Please take Eriksson with you. Gaunce. You belong in the AHL NOT the NHL. We have already had one Mason Raymond, we don't need another one. Markstrom. Please sit for a while and watch Nilsson play, and then when you're ready to come back, change your pre game routine so you're actually ready to play when you come back.
  14. Eriksson and Edler? Do We Really Need Them?

    Could care less if I ever see Eriksson or Edler on the ice again. IMHO the team was MUCH better off with them out of the lineup. Easy to see (now that Tanev is out) who is the better player in that pairing by far. Edler isn't "terrible" per say. Just isn't part of the new NHL. Seems like time, space, and energy are sucked right out of the team every time he touches the puck. His decision making is horridly slow, and his passes are anything but crisp and on the mark. He telegraphs his "drop pass" on the power play like he has sent a memo to the other team. His decline has been well documented over the past years, and I have no doubt the only reason he is still here is because he has refused every request for a trade or movement. Sad, as he really is a waste of space on a now progressive thinking roster. Everybody can see it except him I guess. Eriksson is simply not that good. Have thought that for a while. While I can see the thinking that went into the decision to acquire him in the first place, (chemistry with Sedins) I can't see for the life of me where the decision came from to give him the money and the term he received. Two years MAX with an option for 4 more if he clicked with the Sedins, but NOT 6 years at the money he received right from the get go. Geez! WTF?? Now were are stuck with a player (like Edler) that thrived in a much slower, less aggressive NHL, and can't for the life of him grasp the concept of transition and a fast break the other way. I also can't figure out where he got the reputation as a goal scorer either. Doesn't seem to want to go to the so called "dirty" areas. Doesn't seem to possess a shot that has accuracy or zip on it, and from what I can see, he seems to feel that he is a so called finisher yet doesn't seem to be anywhere he can finish. The team is fragile enough right now, and all it takes is two players that are not progressive, new NHL thinkers, to disrupt and throw the while team chemistry off. I would also add Gaunce to this equations as well. NOT an NHL player IMHO, but that is food for another thread.
  15. [Injuries] Canucks 2017/18

    I do NOT miss Edler or Eriksson. Team is doing just fine without them. Interested (mildly) to see what Gaunce can bring. Hopefully much more than the non impact, fringe player I saw last year.
