  1. Someone please explain to me how this makes any sense? January?
  2. Seems pretty standard to have an x-ray taken when someone presents at an ER with your wife's symptoms. Dr. should be held accountable. It's a healthcare system failure if Dr. didn't have option to x-ray at ER, based on cost concerns or unavailability of Tech/Radiologist etc. Otherwise, as described, it's a Dr. failure.
  3. Never thought I'd say this but I was impressed by Megna and I really give Green credit for recognizing how Megna could become an effective NHLer. I think he goes down and works on a checking role and maybe he could eventually become an effective checker. IMO Willie miscast him last year. I'm a big Boesser fan and in my earlier posts pretty much guaranteed he'd make it. Had doubts after this game but listening to coach after the game it still sounds like he's going to make it. Archibald is a good story but I just don't see him making it, initially, anyway. Will be a call-up. Jake is in Pedan is in Biega to Utica
  4. those are the 4 I picked from the group of 8 listed by winthecup Also interested in the 3 D for the 7/8 spots. I really like what Biega brings but the other 2 guys need to stay imo
  5. Would be interested in a poll on this board where we could select 4 players from this group 1. Boesser 2.JV 3.DD 4. Archibald
  6. He's been OK but really hasn't stood out. I realize he's missed alot of hockey so maybe he needs time to find his game in the AHL
  7. I've been on the fence on Pedan making the team, but watching him lately I hope he makes it. He brings an edge this team lacks, seems to agitate guys on other teams, and I like that. If Gudbranson could find that edge in his game he may finally achieve his potential.
  8. why is there still a question of whether Boesser stays? Of course he is staying. All he has done here is be the best player in pretty much every game he has played; led the team and the league in scoring in the preseason; showed nothing but confidence and poise in all 3 zones; outplayed EVERY bubble player vying for his spot...oh ya and he had 4 goals in 9 games in the regular season against what, 5 playoff teams? Other than some paper transaction where he is immediately recalled before the first game there is no chance to gets sent to Utica. I have watched or listened to virtually every Canucks game since 1973 and if he doesn't make the team out of camp/ play in game 1 for any reason other than injury I will quit this board, cancel NHL center ice and never watch a game again (not b/c I would be mad, but it's just how confident I am) So can we please end this debate? Now, Virtanen on the other hand...well...that's a close one.
  9. Predictions: The Sedin's decline accelerates but they are still trotted out on the power play like it's 2011 Ganger and Vanek do NOT provide the offense they are expected to Markstrom is OK but back up goaltending is weak and costs many games Del Zotto is surprisingly good, Tanev gets injured and misses at least 30 games Horvat has a sub par year offensively Granlund proves to be Canuck's leading scorer (goals) Boesser get 16 goals Canucks finish ahead of Vegas and Colorado in standings but behind Arizona, Ed and Cal
  10. unpopular? ok 1. I like Don Cherry 2. Jeff Paterson is an excellent broadcaster and I look forward to hearing him on the radio 3. I like the Provies 4. National anthems before games are stupid, post 9/11 God Bless America in 7th inning stretch in baseball is even stupider 5. No to overseas NHL expansion (goes for NFL too) 6. Shorty is overrated, so is Jim Hughson (since joining HNIC)
  11. Liked Markstrom Burmistrov (surprised by him, he skated well and looked determined) Virtannen (man I'm cheering for this guy) Granlund Del Zotto (looks like a solid NHLer) Stetcher Boesser's winner OK Boesser Baertch Biega Holm (looked good early, good skater, had a couple of tough shifts. Looked like Sbisa without the physicality) Dorsett Goldy (I really want him to be great but he needs to keep things simpler) Gudbranson (I don't know what it is that bugs me about him. He talks such a good game, I just think he lacks something and I'm not sure if he's every going to find it) No Upshall Pedan (respect for standing up for a teammate, great to see but otherwise looks like he's a year or 2 in AHL away from his ceiling of 6/7 D in NHL but not ready yet)
  12. By Bill Center / San Diego Padres | 11:56 AM ET + Clayton Richard sees the direction the Padres are headed. So does Wil Myers. AndJhoulys Chacin. "The culture is shifting," Richard said Sunday after the Padres scored a third straight win over the Los Angeles Dodgers at Petco Park. "We're still young," the veteran left-hander continued. "But we're starting to establish a willingness to compete every day. Where we want to be has to start with that belief as well as good young players. You have to believe you can win every night against anyone. That tone is being set." "Everyone thought we'd just be playing it out this year because we were so young," said Chacin after his brilliant seven-inning outing Sunday, which resulted in the third straight win over the Dodgers. "We couldn't change that we were young and inexperienced. We play hard. And we're playing for moving it forward. We won that series in St. Louis. We beat the Dodgers here. It's not something that just happened. There's a building feeling." And Myers feels it, too. "I think it could become something special," said the first baseman. "We've played really well. I like what we are doing and where we're headed. We are kind of developing as a group. I hate to think where we might be if I had hit better." The Padres are not a championship-caliber team yet by any description. But they are moving forward. Since starting the season losing 30 of their first 45 games, the Padres have gone 47-45. And more recently, they have held their own during the toughest part of the schedule. Take the game the Padres lost in the Dodgers series as an example. The Dodgers won 1-0 with Clayton Kershaw pitching a gem. But rookie Dinelson Lamet matched him. "The difference was one pitch against Kershaw," said Chacin. "One-nothing, that's competing. That game showed me something. This weekend showed me something. And there are a lot of young players in the system." Not every prospect is going to reach a Major League lineup. But the Padres have a bundle. Most of the Padres top prospects spent the 2017 season playing in leagues advanced for their age. Class A Fort Wayne opened the season with five of the 10 youngest players in the Midwest League and made the playoffs. Eighteen-year-old Fernando Tatis Jr. is finishing the season at Double-A San Antonio, where postseason Texas League All-Star Luis Urías opened the season as the youngest player in the league. There are no promises in baseball. But fans have a right to be excited about the Padres' future. The Padres are not there. So much needs to be done, the results might not be seen for another two to three seasons. But I think they are turning the corner. The game that gave me the most hope over the weekend was actually Friday night, the only game they lost. The Padres and Dinelson Lamet battled the powerful Dodgers down to a single pitch. Andy Green saw the same thing. "You lose a game short term, but for the long term, I think it was exciting," said Green. "To see someone square off against Clayton Kershaw and for the most part match him, you can't ask for anything more from Lamet." Okay, so the weekend was one small step. But it was a step in the right direction. And a step the Padres needed to make. Noteworthy • Chacin entered Sunday's game against the Dodgers with the lowest home ERA in the National League at 1.85. Chacin allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and no walks with eight strikeouts Sunday to end a three-decision losing streak. Although Chacin's overall ERA dropped to a season-low 3.96, his home ERA jumped slightly to 1.91. Chacin is 8-3 at home and 12-10 overall this season. • SS Erick Aybar was 4-for-8 in the final two games of the Dodgers series with Sunday's two-run homer, a double and three runs scored. Aybar came off the disabled list after missing 28 games with a fracture in his left foot suffered July 21. The Padres had believed Aybar was lost for the rest of the season when he passed a physical last week and returned to the Padres after a two-game rehab assignment in Arizona. • Is Myers finally showing signs of breaking out of his prolonged slump? Myers was 3-for-4 Sunday with two RBIs. He was 5-for-11 with a double, a triple, three RBIs and two runs scored in the series, and he is 10-for-30 in his eight games after going hitless in 20 straight at-bats. Sunday was his 29th multihit game of the season and his fourth game with three or more hits. • LF Jose Pirela was 3-for-9 against the Dodgers this series with a home run, three RBIs, three walks and three runs scored. • LHP Brad Hand gave up ninth-inning homers both Saturday and Sunday to the Dodgers. Saturday's two-run shot by Justin Turner tied the score and nailed Hand with a blown save, although he picked up the win on Yangervis Solarte's walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth. Hand got his 15th save Sunday despite Cody Bellinger's homer.
  13. Haven't posted in awhile, but been watching. Was at the doubleheader Saturday and the game yesterday. Great 3 wins over the Dodgers. Made even sweeter by the fact that more than 1/2 the crowd was cheering for the Dodgers. I know the season is going nowhere and some people are disappointed b/c the team is playing well and not tanking but it sure is fun to see a young team coming together and players taking huge strides on a weekly basis. After a 15-30 start, the team is over .500 since then. The future is bright. Time to get on the bus
  14. Out of respect, can someone please change the topic name to get the gentleman's name correct. Saw them last year. Happy I did, so many great hits. RIP
  15. I'd never seen that video of Gaudette's grandmother's reaction to his draft. Pretty cool. I'm really excited about this kid I think he has winner written all over him and I hope he is a big part of this team's future. This game tonight and the interviews with him this week have me even more excited about the future.
