  1. HUGELY were one of the softest teams in the NHL WITH dorsett in the line up. His value has nothing to do with how many playoff goals he has it's more about grit, effort and hard work, ...you know the stuff you want to rub off on the young guys who do score the playoff goals
  2. toughness doesn't matter as much if the other team fears your powerplay.
  3. only way they retire at the end of next season is with the cup
  4. fighting is never the answer so i submit to you the top 5 former canucks who give the best hugs 1) kyle wellwood, would have you hugging it out and going for cheeseburgers in no time 2) dave babych, top bear hug period 3) eddie lack, just try to start a fight after seeing one of his moms tweets 4/5) sedin twins, they are the type of people who excel at everything they do so i'm assuming their hug skills are off the charts as well
  5. 1) most of the players asked did say it was sad to see him go, horvat, beartchi, dorsett. The sedins made a point to share the blame around the entire team when talking about willie. They actually said the willie fireing said more about the individual performance of the team than willies coaching. It might have more to do with what you want to hear or maybe the kids all loved him and the vets all hated him, but i doubt it 2) as far as work ethic the sedins are easily our best conditioned athletes and at their age that's impressive, as far as putting in the work to be ready to play hockey it's not even close
  6. yep, hurt feeling that willie didn't play the kids the way the FANS wanted. Who cares that willies way was actually better for the kids development in the long run, who cares that we had a coach that held our players accountable. The facts of the matter mean nothing when compared to the fans FEELINGS. willie had the ear of the room, his players clearly understood that you have to put in hard work to earn your spot, it didn't matter what the name on the back of your jersey was if you had all the talent in the world you still had to work harder than a guy like a chaput or a megna to stick in the line up. I get that you want to make changes after an abysmal season but coaching was never our one and only problem last year just the easiest target for a quick fix wille did play the kids and he did treat all players equally only difference is the FANS divided up the ice time based on offensive potential alone, willie went by work ethic and defensive awareness. Offense helps you win games and defense helps you win championships
  7. the original Tokyo drift, you could pull off epic power slides on one of these
  8. why not zoidburg?
  9. that's what i got also all of their descriptions of what they might be looking for in a future coach described greens situation to a tee
  10. the new coach will have the final "option" on weather jarvis sticks, he is still a valuable hockey mind in a support role, the powerplay isn't much to brag about though
  11. i' don't think anyone is safe in this market, we would run bobby freeking orr out of town for pinching too much
  12. just look at gudies short playoff history with the panthers, i'm sold just on that alone as he was a BEAST in the post season, some guys elevate there game in the second season and he is one of them
  13. so with wille out of town we are all now on the "get rid of gudbranson bandwagon" ??? sure doesn't take long to get the pitchforks and torches out for the next good witchhunt round these parts
  14. if 90% of your active roster makes huge strides forward in there play and your team still sucks then maybe you didn't start with all that good of a roster to begin with. Every player outside of the twins erickson and edler made huge strides forward this year yet we still end up with 69 points
  15. he job is to literally stick his chin out to the public and be a hate magnet
