  1. Right now we don't need him. Let him play top minutes in in Utica. For him, it's better for his development at this point imo. We already have too many forward as it is up here at the moment tbh, especially now with reports saying that Higgins could be good to go tomorrow (that's what I heard at least). If Higgins slots back in then someone has to be scratched. The next little while will indeed in regards to the lineup. We are going to have to trade someone, I love Higgins, his work ethic is great something the young guys can learn from but we should look at moving him. His position seems to have been taken over this season.
  2. I see where you are coming from but one statement you made confused me. Play the young guys for their nine games and if they are not ready for the NHL trade them? Just because players aren't ready for a full time spot in the NHL doesn't mean you trade them. How will we ever get a contending team in the future with that attitude? I would like to see a few of the guys get nine games. Maybe Shinkaruk has a chance this year? I don't really follow the prospects as much as I could but if I remember correctly, Shinkaruk was the last(or one of the last) player cut a few years ago. It looked very possible he would make the team with Torts yet since then it seems he has been passed down the depth chart. Again, I don't follow the prospects so maybe he has had injury issues that I was unaware of, just find it interesting.
  3. Edmonton went on a rebuild 10 years ago. It's still going. Would you rather a team that will be competitive while injecting youth or a team that injects youth and goes nowhere? Fans complain now, imagine a losing culture. Canucks did a lot better this year than expected. Playoffs were disappointing but I honestly didn't think they'd even make the playoffs, so this past season is a win in my books. Next season will be better regardless of what happens in the off-season mainly because we know what Horvat can do. He won't get those sheltered mins at the start of the season like he did last season. Not at all saying he is our 'saviour' or anything but imagine having the 2nd half of the season Horvat for a full season. He really picked up his game and made good strides, and he'll be better next season. Hopefully another young guy gets injected or others can pick up their game too (Vey, Kassian, etc.)
  4. Reg win - 2 OT win - 1 There should be no reward for shootout. Teams will play less safe to grab that extra point. 5mins of 4 on 4, then 5mins of 3 on 3. That's what I'd like to at least see. They should try it for the pre-season and see how many times the game is still tied by the end of it.
  5. I loved the Ref cam. They used it quite a bit in the first 2-3 games of the season and since then I can't really remember seeing it. I thought it was going to be used more - granted I did/do not know about it. I don't tend to follow on new ways they are trying to improve the game simply because there is always so much going on, there is little point to get excited until you see it happen lol
  6. Yes, we are slowly settling in a new core of the future. We traded a 30year old Kesler. While our core is still aging every year (Sedins, Burrows, Edler, Bieksa) we have introduced new young players who will get better and become the core of the future (Horvat, Vey, Bonino - I include him as his breakout season seemed to be last year) In previous years, it seems management thought about the present not the future. Here we have young blood in the line-up to learn instead of waiting for an injury to get a call-up. Not to mention instead of 2 strong lines they have forgotton about contracts/salaries and put together the best 4 lines within the roster we have. Granted our roster is much stronger but still having 4 lines for the first time in what 5+ years. Can't be a coincidence that it came about with new management and leadership!
  7. Thanks for the reply. Appreciate it. Yeah I am/was worried about taking up equipment when others want to use it haha. I know this is a 'newbie' question but I have never been to gym, just done home-based workouts for the past few years. Think until I hit the gym for the first time(in a about a months time) I will do the first option at home (as you recommend) to get used to it
  8. Should I do all 4 sets at the same time? For example if I was doing bench press should I do set 1 then take a minute to rest then go on to set 2, etc. Or is it better to do bench press, then move onto my next exercise (like a deadliest/squat perhaps)?
  9. I don't count the Habs out completely. I mean the last 2 games have gone to OT. One lucky bounce and the series could have been a 2-2 tie and a lot of people would be saying that it will go the distance. Down 3-1 is obviously not ideal, but it has been done before. It's not going to happen unless the Habs D start doing a much better job. It seems they are more focused on the offence side of things then the defensive. Their goalie has been great. I can definitely see why MT chose him over Budaj. He needs some help. Also, Vanek? what has he done this entire playoffs? This is a guy that is rumoured to get a $7M pay check this off-season and I haven't seen anything good about him. I didn't really know what kind of player he was, never really watched him until these playoffs. Now I see first hand that he seems absolutely useless, I'd rather have Higgins or Santo or Kassian than him tbh. Maybe he is hurting though? but right now no way he deserves what he is rumoured to get.
  10. Hello All. I was hoping someone could help me out. Is there any particular way to structure a workout for the gym as oppose to a home-based one? Now this sounds like a stupid question, but I am moving and will be joining a gym in about 6 weeks. I have never been to a gym, although I have worked out for about 2 years (well 5 actually but 3 were while I was at uni, so really wasn't taking it seriously haha). At the moment I do a full body workout (just switched it up from a upper/lower split as I felt it was getting a bit stale) and I tend to do the usual stuff people say to do like squats, bench press, deadlifts, pull ups and other compound while throwing in a few isolation exercises as well. Basically my concern really is if I go and I am unable to get to the exercises I want because it is too crowded? Is this something that is just a 'newbie' concern, or is it that I should do all chest exercise at the same time then go on to back and so on. For example do I do 15mins of chest, then 15 mins of back, etc. I hope all of this makes sense Oh and if it helps my plan was to join one of the Trevor Linden Club 16 fitness….pretty sure there is a one close to where I'm moving. Thanks in advance for any tips. Again I'm sure this is a pretty odd/newbie question to be asking haha
  11. This kinda sucks. I like Kesler, but if he wants out best do it now that he has trade value. Despite his past 'injuries' he was healthy this year and played fairly well considering how the entire team played. I hope we can get a good trade for now and the future. Re-tool/Re-build whatever you want to call it suck, but I would like to see some good hockey while waiting for the future. Just like Detroit seems to do….
  12. I want Iginla to hoist the cup but at the same time I don't want to see Boston in another finals…. Going to be a tough, brutal series. I think it will go to at least 6 games.
  13. AV failed in his last year's here. Torts has failed this year. Surely that is a clear sign that we need better players. It's not the coach, it's the wrong players and lack of a top 6. When we were winning in December, I remember hearing a lot of praise for Torts. As soon as we lose it's the coach's fault? Give the guy another year and we'll what the new GM and Linden do with this team - and go from there.
  14. As much as we all hate Boston, got to admit they have built the team the right way. Bring in a bunch of big scary guys who still have skill. Pretty much set for success. If we do get Benning, and he can bring the same success imagine the future ahead...
  15. haha Gillis is surely just doing any moves he can to save his skin now. It's the same players as last year with the same result, and Gillis thinks 'it must be the coach's fault'?
