  1. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks

    I wasn't able to watch the game but I saw the highlights. Was in utter dismay when I saw Tierney given a PS with 12 secs to go in a 4-0 game when he still got a shot off on the breakaway and it was barely a penalty to begin with.... I've lived through 2011 and many other bush-league decisions, but can someone tell me if something happened in the game that put the ref against us? Did we have a player chirping at the refs all night? Did someone accidentally hit him or shoot the puck at him? This just seems so....beneath a professional referee that I can barely comprehend it. It honestly seems like revenge for something. Who was that referee?
  2. Stanley Cup Finals Canucks vs Leafs

    That damn Lafayette! I was in the Saddledome for game 7 that year, double OT...
  3. NHL loudest away crowds

    Agreed! The maroon colour is the last remnant of the Orca Bay/WCE era and I think it's time to move on. There's always upgrades to the arena in the off season, I hope the seats are next
  4. What's happening with the Coyotes??

    It starts at the top, Chayka sucks and should be in an assistants role, not the GM, if anything. They didn't bring back their longtime captain & franchise leader Doan or their workhorse #1 goalie Smith. SD isn't a dominant power forward anymore and MS isn't a top-10 goalie in the league but those vets provided leadership and held them in games throughout stretches - leadership these young 'Yotes are now finding themselves in need of. The players they brought in are not suited for the roles they are assigned for. Stepan is not a #1 centre, Raanta isn't a #1 goalie, Hjalmarsson is more of a 2nd pairing dman... Plus, young players of theirs seem to have taken steps back: Domi hasn't been as dynamic as his rookie season, Duclair had 40 pts a couple seasons ago and has regressed since, Domingue should be in the AHL seasoning his game, etc... I really think they made a mistake when they got rid of Dave Tippett. He got a lot out of that team and knew them, and the market, inside and out.
  5. The Sedin 1000 Points Watch

    Now if you can get your 1000th at home versus Vegas on the 16th, Danny, that would be great...
  6. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Detroit Red Wings

    It may have been said already, but I think Gudbranson has 3 hit posts in his last 3 GP...
  7. Montreal is no good

    I liked the trade for Benn, however minor it was, but other than that Bergevin hasn't impressed me much. Trading away Subban and Sergachev, losing Markov and waiving Streit equals a depleted blueline - and Alzner plus a young Mete aren't going to save their chops. Also, it's my theory that your goalie should not be your highest paid player. If Bergevin didn't pay up though, another GM would've, so I'll give him that.
  8. Leafs Koolaid: Matthews is better than McDavid!!

    I think Matthews is better than McDavid
  9. Who is the NHL's Best Commentary Team?

    After years of streaming games I have my faves and not-so-faves. I don't know the names by heart though. The good: Detroit New York Rangers Colorado The bad: Los Angeles Anaheim Washington (mainly because the SCORE! for goals bugs me) And shoutout to Gene Principe from the Oilers regional broadcast team, he's good.
  10. According to this article, in this particular scenario ECHL games don't count as professional games played. Does anybody know why? It's a professional league, no?
  11. Where to purchase tickets

    Was going to start a new topic but I think I'll try to revive this one. I'm heading down to NYC at the end of the year. Last time I went I saw games in Brooklyn & MSG, this time I'm planning on going to New Jersey for a game versus Detroit. Has anybody been to the Prudential Center before who can give any tips/info? Was thinking of grabbing my ticket now off StubHub but might hold off and grab from a scalper - but I've also heard that the first game after Christmas is always a sellout so I'm not too sure what to expect. I've only bought off scalpers twice and had no problems. Newark is a bit different though. Cheers!

    Guess we got someone new in charge of Vancouver's Hockey Systems...
  13. [Discussion] Jaromir Jagr Rumors 2017 FA

    I hope he goes to a new team so he has another jersey He'll probably stay in the East though. Wonder if he'd work in Columbus?

  15. 5-4-3-2-1 Canucks pick from 1st to 5th!

    What I've read about Patrick isn't particularly gleaming. My hope is we pick #2 and Hischier is still available
