  1. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    Good to see Jake make the big club again. Hopefully he gets some decent ice time and linemates. It'll be interesting to see how Green decides to shape the opening night line up.

    Jake Virtanen. Opening night roster. Awesome.

    Editing players in NHL 18. Pettersson is in the game but I can't find him in the SHL

    Anyone know if you can edit players ?

    Even with the new overalls... our best player on the team is Horvat and Tanev at 84... yikes!
  6. I'm a big fan of Upshall! Been cheering for him ever since he played for the Kamloops Blazers. He could be good for our penalty kill.

    Anyone got he EA access? Let's see the Canucks overalls!
  8. Get a load of this guy!!
  9. Wow what a great feeling for Canucks fans to finally have Big Bo signed and locked in for six more seasons! 5.5 million AAV over 6 years is a great deal for both sides! I wouldn't have minded an 8 year contract but at least we have him until he's 28. If he can consistently have 50-70 point seasons this is an absolute steal. Thank you JB! Thank you Bo! Go Canucks! Let the season begin.
  10. 2017-2018 line up (with what we have)

    This is the lineup I'd like to see on opening night... Would be nice to see Horvat rocking the "A" too... Thomas Vanek - Bo Horvat - Brock Boeser Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Markus Granlund Sven Baertschi - Sam Gagner - Loui Eriksson Anton Rodin - Brandon Sutter - Jake Virtanen Olli Juolevi - Chris Tanev Alex Edler - Troy Stecher Ben Hutton - Mike Del Zotto Erik Gudbranson* Jacob Markstrom Anders Nilsson
  11. As a Canucks fan you can't look at this as a bad signing. Thomas Vanek, a great goal scorer can put up 20 goals. He would have placed 3rd on our team in points last season and didn't even play a full year. It's a one year contract that only pays him 2 million! That's a great signing. He gives us depth. Last season we had some serious issues with depth. Half of our roster we're AHL players... we are also a team that seems to get injuries every year. And a lot of them. Vanek gives us depth. We finally have an overload of depth at every position. Plus all this does is force players like Boeser, Virtanen, Goldobin, Gaunce... to fight for roster spots. This is what every hockey team wants. Personally I hope guys like Boeser, Virtanen and Juolevi make the team and we cut guys like Dorsett, Boucher. Good signing for JB. Good for Canucks fans. I have high praise for Benning this year. I feel like he was one of the most active GMs and his signings were all very reasonable. We are a much better, deeper, competitive team now. Go Canucks.
  12. Boeser is a right wing. Vanek is a left wing. BB will make the team.
  13. Tough to see Boeser, a Calder consideration spending the year in Utica. Put Gagner at centre and create a spot for Brock.
  14. I think Boeser sticks. You play Gagner at centre to make room for Granlund. Damn we got some depth now. What an off season for JB.
  15. What a terrific off season for Jim Benning!
