  1. Actually, by finishing last, the Canucks have the best chance of drafting 1st overall compared to every other team, individually... Please do some research on the draft
  2. #notmycoach #freewilly
  3. Aaaaaaaand he just lost his spot in the lineup.
  4. The Canucks didn't draft Gaunce to be a 4th liner. He's almost 23 years old and has 1 goal in 65 NHL games and is -10. Compared to his numbers in Junior and the AHL, he deserves a D as a first rounder. As an NHL player, Brendan Gaunce is a D nearing bust territory.
  5. Poor effort. Where is the leadership?
  6. Called it. Can't win if you try not to lose. Didn't deserve any points tonight.
  7. 16 shots against. 2-0
  8. Called it. This is what happens when Canucks don't show up to play.
  9. Getting thoroughly outplayed again. No net presence, no sustained pressure in the offensive zone, low pass percentage, poor hitting, poor puck pressure in the neutral and defensive zones. Not a recipe for success.
  10. Very entertaining. Definitely re-ignited my enthusiasm for the team. Finally a game i'd have paid to see. This is why I watch hockey.
  11. Nah but seriously. If they send Stecher down, who's still going to watch them play like this? Is this supposed to be entertaining?
  12. It's good to see empty seats in the arena. People shouldn't pay to see 1.75 gpg with a dump and chase offense + trap defense. Bring in some exciting players. I'd rather blow 4 goal leads than never score them in the first place.
  13. 3/10 I want to rate him higher but until he adds size and skill upfront the Canucks are going to be a mediocre team at best. What's the point of watching when you play uninspired, boring hockey. I don't want to see 2-1 games for the foreseeable future. Without size and skill in the top 6, teams can't be competitive in the playoffs. Our small forwards are going to get wrecked. Drafting Juolevi and not Tkachuk cemented the fact Benning isn't going after the Boston model. I thought building a big, skilled team is what he got him for? Oh well. Oilers should be ripping it up soon. Bought a Draisaitl Jersey! Atleast now have something to look forward too when it comes to hockey.

  15. DRAKE CAGGIULA views: 43884 BIRTHYEAR 1994-06-20 BIRTHPLACE Pickering, ON, CAN AGE 21 NATION Canada POSITION C/LW SHOOTS L HEIGHT 178 cm / 5'10" WEIGHT 84 kg / 185 lbs CONTRACT 17/18 A smart, skilled, and gritty buzzsaw of a winger that gets up and down the ice with focused drive. His mobility is elite, and his first three steps propel him to top speed quickly. Defensively, he is very active and can contain the opposition by limiting their chances in the slot. Offensively, he can be uncontainable, consistently displaying excellent vision and individual puck skills; can act as both the passer or the shooter in any given situation. An all-around game, rooted in his strong will to win and his ability to make the players around him better, is what he brings each and every night. Character is something built through tough situational battles and having to step up at key moments as a leader. Caggiula has the capacity to be that leader on and off the ice.

Judging by his bio, we don't have a single young player similar too his style aside from maybe Virtanen. I love Virtanen's style of play and would have been overjoyed to get another player like that. It probably would have made many of us more excited to see the Canucks next season. This is a significant blow to fanbase morale.
