  1. Have to think there's more to the firing besides performance. How quickly he's snapped up may help explain this, but in the meantime we have the longest serving coach in the
  2. We got better as the game went on. just 3 high danger chances in the third must not include posts, missed open nets....
  3. We played well and should have won this. I don't care what the score was. Bo, Petey, Miller, Myers, Motte, Pearson, Hughes, Fantenberg, Celly all with good games and the others played well enough. They should walk out of the house of horrors feeling decent about it, move on and ready to go against the dogs.
  4. Their D is pretty thin so just need to expose them , score 4 goals with an Eriksson EN and we got this, or.................... its a blow out...
  5. tough luck that period. we held most of the play they score on a breakaway/ open net and we don't. gotta get the next one
  6. PP looked good for the last minute. Build off of that
  7. Whoa , Green the master at challenges! get it together guys...
  8. I hope we're 'doing it right on the wrong side of town' tonight and not them #powderbluesband
  9. That's as ridiculous as a Kassian suspension
  10. Carey Price is $#@sed about this too. 2-0 Montreal over the turtles in the 3rd. Cheers Carey!
  11. That's the most enjoyable suspension play viewed this year. good on Kass. Don't disagree with it, but cannot believe Tkachuk didn't get called on 2 illegal hits IMO so we have a new rat that has taken the torch. Jan 29th revenge match will be a good one.
  12. Winterpeg is -6 and we're -20 in the interior.... WTH Need to right that wrong with a victory! 4-2 for the cool cats.. Lui the specialist with the EN
  13. They played a pretty tidy game up until halfway through the third. high danger chances show 10-7 for Minnesota for the game with the majority in that span. Overall a pretty close game and Marky sealed the deal for us in the end. while he's hot I hope he should play Winterpeg and then Green gives Demko the net for Thursday or Saturday.
  14. Yes thanks @JamesB for your comments , always well thought and as a bonus I now can refer to Natural Stat Trick. Had been hunting for those detailed games stats.:)
  15. Take the game, chuck it in the trash where it belongs We're 7-1 in the last 8 games. Bring on Florida!
  16. Little Things Update Since Eriksson has been added to the Horvat line 6 games Eriksson- 3P - +6 Pearson- 8P- +7 Horvat- 8P- +8 Previous 6 games Pearson- 3P- -6 Horvat- 3p- -5 I hope Green doesn't do a knee jerk reaction when Sutter or Ferland get back by taking Eriksson out of the lineup. It's the best they've played all year. Eriksson may not be the fastest or the most physical player, but he is probably the smartest defensive forward we have with his positioning and stick work in particular. He works well with protecting Bo's and Pearson's heavy forecheck game so it doesn't back fire coming the other way. Keep the band rocking together Travis!
  17. Well, Toronto signed Marner and kept their main core which most folks felt wasn't possible after the cap was rolled back to 81.5 M, so not too concerned with Canucks situation over the next 2 critical years. It's amazing how these teams are playing right up to the cap day in and day out. Will probably lose Leivo, Stecher, Fantenberg for Tram and Rafferty and maybe Hoglander or Kole Lind at forward. Hoglander looks like one of the steals in the 2019 draft at this point. Unreal that we snagged him! Worst case scenario on Baer and Sutter is they both hit the AHL, A 3.3 cap hit for Sutter in the AHL is a possibility but see LTIR or a trade more realistic for him. with the roll back on the cap this year, we should see an increase of 2-3 Mil or maybe more this year so don't see a real set back in talent but also no FA signings unless Ferland is going on LTIR for 2020- 2021. The following year will probably see Edler, Pearson, Sutter, Benn gone to sign Pettersson and Hughes. Again we will have Pods, Hoglander, Lind, MacEwen, juolevi and other ELC's in the lineup. if it wasn't for 18-22 YO on ELC's to sign we would be screwed, but JB has drafted well so I think we can sleep well with JB saying " hey... I got this, trust me" A good capologist is worth their weight in gold these days...
  18. With Schaller, Eriksson, Baer, MacEwen ready to go or call up. Boucher's also having an outstanding year that also could cover off a top 6 position temporarily
  19. yes, It was a great team, and Don lever was right up there as well It took awhile for me to get over the big irishman laying out Orr prior to joining the Canucks.:)
  20. Started out as a Bruins fan as a kid in 1970, Bobby Orr could do no wrong. My dad took me to my first Canucks game in 72. The players were larger then life that day and I started cheering for the Canucks since than. Andre Boudrias and Bobby Schmautz were my first Canucks idols, and Snepsts kicking ass in the 80's. Pat Quinn however took it to a whole new level when he turned the franchise around. Have really been addicted since then. The proudest moment as a fan besides the 3 runs was when the Sedin's donated 1.5 million to the Childrens hospital. Class acts they were and still are.
