  1. The bigger ice shouldn't be an issue since the Bulls play on International Sized ice already.
  2. Your assessment that our core players were boys before Gillis got here and men now as the sole reason for why they have made such big strides is a joke. You cannot ignore the fact that they developed under Gillis and not Nonis. Sedins did not look like they were ever going to be more than 80pt players and Kesler did not look like he was going to be anything more than a 3rd line checking center. Their developments into star players in this league occurred under Gillis and the culture of winning he has instilled in the locker room. Also, the fact that you value Bernier as a first rounder in your argument shows how ridiculous a claim you are making. While Bernier was a first rounder, he did not reach his potential when he was with the Sharks or the Canucks and he still has not reached his potential after being traded. Grabner couldn't even make this team out of training camp and had to be traded and then waived to finally get going. While Grabner did have a good first year with the Islanders, he has been completely invisible this year and is totally off his career high in goals that he achieved last year.
  3. so your keeping it a secret, if you are boy or girl. hmmmm.? welcome anyway he/her

  4. Sure he has a lot of takeaways but that stat can be read in a lot of ways. If you watch Bieksa in our own zone, most of his takeaways are from: 1) Coughing the puck up and having to retrieve it back from the opposing team. 2) Failing to clear and once again having to retrieve it back from the opposing team. If you've watched Canucks games for the past 3 years, this situation has happened numerous times and Bieksa is usually the cause of it when he's in the game. Edler and Ehrhoff's giveaways are high because those 2 played the majority of the minutes last year. Also, having low takeaways is not necessarily a bad thing as it could mean that whenever they are on the ice, the puck is usually in the team's possession. Stats can't just be taken at face value.
