  1. EP40 for captain... :ph34r:

    1. SabreFan1


      How about the Canucks wait until both of his testicles drop before they give him a leadership position. :rolleyes:

  2. Fantastic atmosphere at Rogers arena tonight!

      I knew a few people there, it seemed like a great time!

      There will now be 50,000 people claiming to be in Rogers Arena and they saw EP40's first NHL goal. :lol:

      There's going to be some ups and downs this season. I'm just happy with that compete level. I just hope they can keep it going. 

  3. Couldn't they just have younger players room with the veterans? This Fortnite ban on the road is just plain stupid.

      I don't see what the issue is with the ban since it's the players, not mgmt or coaches, who initiated it and agreed to it.

    3. HerrDrFunk


      Yeah, it’d be thing if this no video games policy was an edict from someone like Lamoriello but the players are the ones buying into this.

    4. Brad Marchand

      Some of the regular Fortniters on the team (Boeser, Pettersson, Stecher) have already commented that they're fine with the policy.

  4. No excuse for Jake Virtanen to not get at least 20 goals and 20 assists this season.

      @Tom SestitoEven if hes paced to get 40 points Baer still hasn't done it. We can't say Boeser has scores 30 goals even though his pace says he could last season.


      And Baer is more developed of a player than Virtanen

      A 29-goal season with 60-someodd games played is a 30-goal season.

      12/20/32, IMO.


      This team is not a good team.

  5. What to do with Loui Eriksson?

    2. SabreFan1


      No choice.  Play him until he can be dumped onto another team.  It's too soon to waive him.  His dead cap hit would last to long if he was waived this year or next.

    3. coastal.view


      the man clearly needs a raise

      then he'll improve his game


    4. NewbieCanuckFan


      I'm reminded of the following goodfellas movie scene whenever I think of Eriksson (whether he has a good or bad game):


      Now the guy's got Paulie as a partner. Any problems, he goes to Paulie. Trouble with the bill? He can go to Paulie. Trouble with the cops, deliveries, Tommy, he can call Paulie. But now the guy's gotta come up with Paulie's money every week, no matter what. Business bad? "**** you, pay me." Oh, you had a fire? "**** you, pay me." Place got hit by lightning, huh? "**** you, pay me." Also, Paulie could do anything. Especially run up bills on the joint's credit. And why not? Nobody's gonna pay for it anyway. And as soon as the deliveries are made in the front door, you move the stuff out the back and sell it at a discount. You take a two hundred dollar case of booze and you sell it for a hundred. It doesn't matter. It's all profit. And then finally, when there's nothing left, when you can't borrow another buck from the bank or buy another case of booze, you bust the joint out


      Eriksson had a great game?  Loui says, I don't care, **** you pay me.

      Eriksson had a bad game?  Loui says, I don't care, **** you pay me.

      Team is in a tight cap crunch?  Loui says, I don't care, **** you pay me.




  6. Best way to use Aeroplan miles?

    1. Sikhguy23


      Air canada flightsB)

    2. MJDDawg


      Depends on how many you have. But it's slim pickins in the Aeroplan catalogue so don't expect too much.

  7. It's between Buffalo and Vancouver now for Pronman's number one ranked farm system on The Athletic.

      @Tre Mac Even though I'm a Demko homer, I'm gonna guess that on a list made by a pro writer, they'll probably have Luukkonen cancelling him out considering that they were both considered the #1 Euro goalies of their classes.

    3. Baer.


      @Alflives generational? No.

    4. Alflives



      Quinn Hughes will prove to be the best player in his draft, and a unique - generational talent - who will lead us to at least three Cups.  


  8. Pettersson, Gaudette, and Virtanen will all benefit big time from today's depth signings I think. 

  9. I hope the Canucks make a big push to get OEL next year.

      The only way he won't be a Coyote is if the team is relocated.

    3. Ghostsof1915


      More like it folds. 

    4. goalie13


      @Coconuts Even then, given how often teams move and keep the same name, he could be a Houston Coyote or a Kansas City Coyote or even a Quebec Coyote.  :lol:

  10. Is it fair to say the Capitals fleeced Chicago in the Kempny trade?

      Shows you an elite Dman can make just about any defensive partner look good.  We see it here on a lesser scale with Tanev.

    4. Art Vandelay

      Art Vandelay

      No. He was a UFA, and had played 1.5 NHL seasons. I honesty think Chicago got more than they should have. Props to WSH for taking the risk and it working out brilliantly. 

  11. Does Guentzel get suspended for the shoulder to Carlson's head just now? Very much the same hit as Wilsons but Carlson didn't even see Guentzel coming.

      oh i didnt watch the last few minutes since i switched to the jets game. thatll be a pretty huge hole o.o

    3. Time Lord

      You're the only one who keeps bringing it up, so maybe other people don't see it as suspension worthy?

    4. Brad Marchand

      Need a reverse angle of that hit because it's nearly impossible to tell how much head contact there was from that view.

  12. I was 6 when the Sedins made their NHL debuts. Tonight was the perfect goodbye after years of entertainment! Thank You Sedins!

  13. Sorry if this isn't allowed, what's the advantage of selling on StubHub? 

    1. Quantum


      It's a way to sell your tickets electronically without having to meet up in person. Saves the hassle of say a craigslist meet up when re-selling. Only downside is that StubHub takes a cut of your sale so, there's that.

  14. What gate will the Canucks bobbleheads be handed out at tonight?

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      all of them - last time they had boxes of them at every gate 

    2. Alflives


      Do these Bobble Headed players have sticky bottoms, so fans can a fix them to their scooter steering wheels??

    3. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      nope, no sticky bottom. You'll have to use duct tape. 

  15. Wonder what the Canucks would have to offer to get Tom Wilson from the Capitals. 

    1. Show previous comments  9 more
    2. Undrafted


      First off, I strongly disagree with your view on Eller--in fact, I'd say he's become one of the best bargain deals in the league.  He brings a lot at only $3.5Mper--a perfect veteran 3C who can move up to a 2C in an emergency and his offence is still getting incrementally better. 

      And if the Canucks (or anyone else) took on Orpik's salary, then they'd have the cap space to keep both Wilson and Carlson (re-signing Carlson from $4M to $7M would be and additional $3M, Wilson might warrant a raise from $1M or so).

      If Wilson is to be traded, it will be for significant futures as I stated originally.


      All that said, I think if we're patient with Virtanen, we'll have a player with similar attributes, minus the nasty Wilson brings.

    3. TheHitman


      @Undrafted What do you think the Caps would offer in a potential Orpik cap dump? Beck Malenstyn was a player the Canucks were looking at and hoping to pick if he reached the Jakub Stukel pick. Not sure the Capitals would give up a guy like that.

    4. Undrafted


      Honestly, I don't know much about the Caps farm or prospects, so I couldn't say--I just watch their games on a regular basis with my friends.  I rely on them to pass on news about organizational stuff and that name hasn't come up at all.

      If I were to wildly guess what their GM might do, it'd likely be trying to convince one or both of Carlson and Wilson to take a hometown discount.  Carlson might bite if they give him the 8th year; Wilson might agree to a 1-yr deal with the assurance that he'd get paid the year after, once Orpik's deal is off the books.  Both players seem to genuinely want to stay with the organization.

  16. Surely McPhee will be looking to bring Gusev back from the KHL. Wow.

    1. Where's Wellwood

      Where's Wellwood

      He'll sign with TB once the rights expire.

  17. Give Gudbranson all the money in the world! gn Marchand

    1. Sikhguy23


      Definitely the type of player the Canucks need

    2. King Heffy

      Would have included a NTC if Marchand hadn't gotten up.

      If the draft was re-done today I don't think Petterson would go 5th, so at least we got that going for us.

    4. King Heffy

      King Heffy

      Still remember pages and pages of posters complaining that we reached.  I was happy about the pick then but he's exceeded my expectations this year.

  19. It will be entertaining to watch both Elias and Sven dishing out assists in the future. 

  20. Really hate this camera work for the outdoor game...

    1. Wilbur


      Looks like a mini-rink.  Goes to show you how much difference perspective makes.

  21. I wish Ilya Kovalchuk was still in the NHL. What an entertaining player! 

    1. Alflives


      He was great.  Is he still?  Maybe he could do a Radulov, come back, and be really good?  

    2. Baer.


      He can return next year if he wants. He will be 35 and free from that new jersey fiasco. However he is having success and it seems Russians are more interested in playing in their home country these days... I don't see why he would come back but it is possible

  22. St Louis sure has a lot of prospects these days...

  23. Canucks need a guy like Tom Wilson...

    1. smithers joe

      smithers joe

      they drafted virtanen for his speed, grit and scoring. we just haven't seen enough of it yet. when we draft tougher guys, fans say we should have drafted the smaller, more skilled guy. when we draft the smaller more skilled guys, fans say we should have drafted the tougher guy. 

  24. Can't remember the last time so many fans wanted a player that's never played a playoff game in a 9 year NHL career...

      @Sikhguy23 The Winnipeg franchise is better off without him and Buffalo is going to be too. Not really a coincidence at this point. 

    3. goalie13


      The last time was probably Jay Bouwmeester, except he went 10 NHL seasons with no playoffs.

    4. TheHitman


      @goalie13 Wouldn't exactly call him a playoff performer too, he's been largely unspectacular with the Blues IMO.

  25. Dream scenario: sign Carlson and Doughty, bring back Tryamkin, trade Gudbranson for Borgstrom...

    2. PunjabiCanucks


      Tryamkin stated today he does wish to return back. I say in the future once Hutton, Tanev, or Edler leave he will return.

    3. TheHitman


      @Tigs You don't think Florida would do it?

    4. -AJ-


      Blegh, no Doughty. I'd take Hedman though.
