  1. Ref should never be assigned to a Stanley Cup final ever again. Game was lost due to his decision.
  2. Maybe he doesn't get the respect from the media, maybe he doesn't get the respect from the fans with Crosby being front and center, but in my opinion, when it comes down to PERFORMANCE, 'Gino' is the Russian player who delivers. If I was a coach, I'd take him on my team before I would take Ovechkin. Ovie is great during the regular season, but time and time again, he has shown he cannot elevate his game when it comes to crunch time. It may take Malkin some time to get going... he is a notoriously slow starter, but when he does get going, he can dominate the big games like Crosby, Gretzky or Messier. You can't talk about how strong a team Pittsburg has been without including him in the equation.
  3. Couldn't be happier to see the Oilers lose. Difference was the performance of the respective team's best players. Getzlaf was the best Duck, McWhiner wasn't the best Oiler. The post game press conference was the real clue. McWhiner should have taken responsibility for not performing... he didn't... instead he was making excuses. Draisaitl was more of a captain than McWhiner. I think McWhiner doesn't have the character yet to deal with tough situations... instead of playing better, he gets whiny and starts hacking and slashing. Really starting to dislike this kid's personality. He may aspire to take Crosby's crown as best player in the league, but he has nowhere near the character. His expression when things are not going his team's way is just like some toddler who is about to start a screaming tantrum.
  4. KPMG is the most corrupt account firm in Canada... responsible for the entire tax scam scandal.
  5. What's the difference between the Edmonton Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks? Edmonton Oilers: Poor management and a sh*tload of PURE DUMB LUCK. Toronto Maple Leafs: Good management and HORSESHOES UP THEIR BACKSIDE. Vancouver Canucks: Mostly good management and NOT A CHANCE IN HELL OF EVER SEEING LUCK SMILING THEIR WAY.
  6. Those who are dismissing Tryamkin as a whiner and suggesting he should have been satisfied with two years at barely above league average are clearly either blind or really unobservant hockey fans.... and they've missed a couple really obvious points: - How many 6'7" 265 lb defensemen are there in the league? - How many 6'7" 265 lb defensemen are there in the league who can skate and carry the puck with better than average speed? - How many 6'7" 265 lb defensemen are there in the league who can skate and carry the puck with better than average speed, like to hit, and can put players out of games with their hits? - How many 6'7" 265 lb defensemen are there in the league who can skate and carry the puck with better than average speed, like to hit, can put players out of games with their hits, are very physical around the net and are willing to fight to protect their goalies and fellow team-mates... so physical players who challenge them can end up injured and out of games? - How many 6'7" 265 lb defensemen are there in the league who can skate and carry the puck with better than average speed, like to hit, can put players out of games with their hits, are very physical around the net and are willing to fight to protect their goalies and fellow team-mates... so physical players who challenge them can end up injured and out of games... and how many of these defensemen are only 22 years old and are without a doubt going to get better?
  7. What better players? Is Sbisa a better player? I like Stecher, but is he an overall better player and more impactful than Tryamkin?
  8. It's great that the Canucks have signed Dahlen... I have no problem with that. The problem is they completely botched Tryamkin.
  9. That's exactly what I am talking about.... the kid was completely mishandled by Willie Desjardins... Should have been played more. See my post on the Tryamkin thread.
  10. Not talking about the ELC... talking about the last failed offer.... They should have offered him 3 years AT MINIMUM.
  11. I really can't stop being pissed off about this failed signing. I keep thinking about the way this kid could absolutely physically dominate a game. Who can do that? I keep thinking about the way he could wheel with the puck and carry it up ice... and the way he was doing it more and more as the season went on. The way he could carry it into the O-Zone while fending off defensemen with one hand. The potential in this kid was sky high. I keep thinking about Elliot Friedman bringing up the failed signing on Hockey Night in Canada... I have a lot of respect for Friedman's knowledge... he would not draw people's attention to a failed signing if the player wasn't important. I have a very strong feeling Canuck's management are on the point of letting a generational player slip away.
  12. This is good to see the Canucks lock up this guy... but if they can offer this completely untried kid 3 years, why was Tryamkin not offered a 3 year deal?????????
  13. I have been a backer of Benning and Canucks management. But now I am seriously reconsidering. I think there was a huge mistake made in not signing Tryamkin. #1: Half of the problem was Willie Desjardins and his poor coaching... and refusal to play Tryamkin as much as he should have... playing Philip Larsen??? Management in allowing WD to remain and play his stupid ice time games and to alienate Tryamkin was the first error. #2 Second was not offering Tryamkin a substantial 3 year deal... Ask yourself who has more potential for the Canucks... Luca Sbisa at 3 years and 10.8 million or Nikita Tryamkin? Yeah, we all know, players are supposed to pay their dues with a two year contract... but the fact is, Tryamkin is not any player... he is special. Does anyone think Gaudreau should have been offered a two year contract? Or McJesus? But somehow Benning thought a two year deal would be enough to keep Tryamkin... WRONG. #3 What was being done to accommodate the family? They should have pulled out the stops to bring over family and friends to visit the wife and to keep her company when Tryamkin was on road trips. I am really unhappy with this result... yes, we may get a chance to see him back in two years, but he should not ever have been let go. Big thumbs down on the Canucks management for this one.
  14. I am back and forth about whether this is a goof by Canucks management. Yeah, Tryamkin seems to have wanted to go back. But I now hear from the Benning interview that Tryamkin was only offered 2 years. That is NOT enough term for a player of this potential. They should have offered him 3 years.... well worthwhile even if he did not develop much further than where he is now. I am now leaning back towards this is a mistake by Canucks management... AGAIN.
