  1. Are the Sedins future changing?

    SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Hey if we could get some east coast GM that stopped paying much attention to them in the last 3 years then so be it. What I see as a possibility is that the Sedins had every intention of squeezing out another year and JB was open to it. But as things have gone with their clear drop in play, they may have gotten the word, or even just the sense from JB that he may just let them walk. And if that's the case, then it makes more sense to both the club and their chance at having an extra shot at the Cup if they were dealt in time for this year's run instead of waiting till the summer.
  2. Belikin lager. Overlooking Caye Caulker beach walk. An island of the coast of Belize. The only beer company on the island. Lucky though it's a nice brew. Then out to get me some of that grilled lobster I can smell from here. Then back up to the room to stream the game. He he, you asked.
  3. Be still my heart Listen to your brain on this one Oilers must win. I'm sure we have nothing to worry about. Bettman and the refs will help the Coilers out.
  4. Stealth-Rebuild Is Possibly 91% Done!

    That tweaking should be tweaked even more. Any team that luck's out as much as the Coilers should be progressively given higher odds to land in the top three. Or at the very least picking # 1.
  5. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Minnesota Wild

    Goldobin hopefully is not in that last category.
  6. I don't care what anyone says, Cole is the best. It's not even about remembering numbers, it's about the voice, and "cadence" as Taylor puts it.
  7. Your going to be Brock's good luck charm tonight, just watch.
  8. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

    Everyone had a great game. I've noticed that Eriksson is real gud at dumping the puck up ice and going for a change. No one does the dump 'n change like him, believe me. He's like a stable genius at it.

    That sucks. Come on McJesus. Ninth place... Let's go!
  10. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Washington Capitals

    They better be thoroughly embarrassed. The NHL should make a new draft rule called The Edmonton Clause. After any team is given that many #1s in a row they should be handed a progressively larger handicap in the lottery draw.
  11. Good idea. We have two 6'6" goalies. They'd just have to stand there side but side. It's not like a third forward is helping much anyways.
  12. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Montreal Canadiens

    It's difficult to argue points like this because the team itself can change quite a bit in three years. Young players grow up, older players.... get older. Players are lost. (That wasn't a Loui joke) new players are signed etc. I could argue that TG may have been further ahead with the young players without WDs fingerprints all over them. (Well that didn't sound right). Say if Canucks had just hired Greener back then. But we'll never know that either. Maybe it was just his deer in headlights, moustache-twitching demeanour behind the bench. I don't know. It just seemed like he was in over his head at times. I completely agree about Cloutier. Even just because of the optics. What great experience did he have anyways other than TLs buddy?

    Like I said it's not that cut and dry. Which means you also have a point. But right out of the gates, in the two games without Boeser, you could see with your own eyes that the team played a more aggressive style where it was clear that the D had a green light to move up into the play for instance. Stecher and Hutton were on cloud nine. Willie didn't have the guts either to reduce the Sedins minutes. He was as nervous as he looked on the bench in using Virtanen or Goldobin when we got him. Imagine how much further Virtanen and Goldie might be if they'd been allowed to play more last season. Yeah, sure, we may have lost even more than we did. That's why I do understand WHY . WD was coaching for his job, when it was clear that ownership seemed only to care about the present winning record. And he seemed to have very little patience or rapport with Tryamkin. Was Nikita a bit of a baby? Probably. Was it more difficult to communicate because of the language barrier? Of course. But he should have recognised the unique situation with him and adapted his old school attitude for the sake of keeping him happy. It's not like he didn't deserve more ice time either. I do understand that Wille was between a rock and a hard place. But it sure looked like he began putting his own job security ahead of the long term development of the team, especially in the last part of the season when it was clear to everyone else the season was toast yet younger players still sat. And not finding out more if Markstrom could handle a longer stretch, because Miller was more proven to get him wins was another mistake that we are paying for now. Hey I get it. WD finally made it to his dream job and didn't want to let it slip away. Can't say I may not do the same thing given the circumstances. But I'm still going to get annoyed by it as a fan.
