  1. We've always know what Edler was, and that is a good defenceman who make mistakes when he's relied upon to carry a team. Myers isn't that dissimilar. I don't think he's been relied upon to carry a team like Edler has at times, but has been the guy earmarked to carry a pairing. When they can play instinctually and not have to overthink things they are very good. If they get in their heads (similar to how the panel talked about Myers after he took that interference penalty) then they second guess.
  2. That's the thing, I don't think he's as interested in the defensive side at this point. Loui may not be putting up offence but you typically don't have to worry about him being on the ice. I haven't been watching Kovy, but for LA to tell him he won't play even if he is the 4th highest scorer on their team this year is pretty telling.
  3. A good blurb on DiPietro from the RJ interviews floating around: https://theprovince.com/sports/hockey/nhl/vancouver-canucks/patrick-johnston-canucks-see-veteran-laden-comets-as-a-good-thing-for-the-kids
  4. A bit of a blurb on Goldobin and Baertschi, adding to the RJ interview: https://theprovince.com/sports/hockey/nhl/vancouver-canucks/patrick-johnston-canucks-see-veteran-laden-comets-as-a-good-thing-for-the-kids

  6. Just a little more to add to the RJ interview: https://theprovince.com/sports/hockey/nhl/vancouver-canucks/patrick-johnston-canucks-see-veteran-laden-comets-as-a-good-thing-for-the-kids
  7. My first thought exactly, why do we need to upgrade? Between who we have now in Sutter and Beagle, and Gaudette and other prospects like Madden or maybe even Focht in future, I don't think we need to spend assets on 3rd line centers.
  8. Not sure what McCarron was doing there, powerskating across the ice to the bench? He couldn't have been anticipating a (legal) hit that far ahead. Certainly little to no let up.
  9. I think it's semantics. Everyone has their wrinkle on the definition, and the discussion is less about the players and more about the definition.
  10. That's my stance on it. It isn't like we have to fill all the spots right away, and looking at Bertuzzi you have to start to consider some other players, like Jovanosvki (or I'm sure there are other better examples). If he's even close to the fence, you do factor that in. It was a pretty dark spot on his career and the Canucks at the time, and it carried on with Moore's suit for years after. It's not just that keeping him out, rather he hadn't completely locked it up on his other merits.
  11. They aren't really the same dynamic as the WCE. And I don't think we need to overload that line either, we can be dangerous in multiple ways instead. That makes us a harder team to handle.
  12. Someone creates a goal song thread every year. More than once usually. No goal song will be liked by everyone. Suck it up.
  13. Hey, great argument. Clear and concise. I don't know how they wouldn't change it after that impassioned plea.
  14. What, like in the 70's or 80's? Oh right, you've watched "hundreds" of games...
