  1. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    or until, pettersson, dahlin, gaudette, lind and juolevi are ready to push them out. until then, we are who we are. the only one jake has to impress is green.
  2. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    the boys had a weak game. i've excepted the fact that the team, will not play great or win every game. we win as a team and lose as a team. all our d-men had give aways our passes were not sharp we need to hire paul reinhart to teach our players, how to give and receive passes. every game is different. i see us in the bottom third of the league. our play, until our young players are ready to step in and compete at this level, will keep us there. this team is on a journey and i just want to share that journey.
  3. Canucks Players' Nicknames

    the kraut line in boston and the st.louis cardinals, used to be known as the gas house gang. for the players i can see the s's and y's used to call their team mates. suitcase smith because he played for so many teams. i was trying to remember the european goalie that the players called archie.
  4. Derrick Pouliot | #5 | Defenceman

    i see pouliot and gudbranson as a future pairing. they could compliment each other.
  5. Derrick Pouliot | #5 | Defenceman

    i wouldn't mind seeing a rotation of the bottom 4 or 5 d-men sitting out. they would stay eager. reminds me of johnny buyck. he would only sign one year contracts. he claimed that kept him hungry. imo, edler and del zotto are having to log too many minutes a game. too many minutes, tend to erode their defense after awhile.
  6. Derrick Pouliot | #5 | Defenceman

    with the number of injuries, we usually get, there probably, won't be a problem.
  7. (GDT) Nucks @ kings

    i'm liking pouliot more and more. a future top 4 d-man i predict.
  8. Canucks Players' Nicknames

    for me it was the steamer, for the way he played. he would steam right through players. my all time favourite was, lionel "big train" conacher, and oriestes "minnie" minosa.
  9. Do you feel your age?

    i've never been 79 before, so i don't know what i'm supposed to feel like. all i know, is, the older i get, the better i use to be.

      It's funny to me that I never had Sambuca even once while in Italy. It was all wine, beer, and Grappa. 


      I spent part of spring in coastal eastern France one year, and while there acquired a taste for Pastis. A few oz over ice topped with fresh water makes for a refreshing beverage.


      One day I'll be in the Greek Islands drinking ouzo, it's just the way it goes. I'm absolutely dying to return to Italy.

  12. Eriksson and Edler? Do We Really Need Them?

    as long as louie and edler are on this team, i'm going to root for them. i'll let the cdc gm's critique them.
  13. Eriksson and Edler? Do We Really Need Them?

    i was being sarcastic. someone said, that when they came back, the team started losing. imo, louie deserves the rest of the season before people throw him under the bus.
  14. Eriksson and Edler? Do We Really Need Them?

    edler and ericksson were certainly to blame for our loss to anaheim but they played no worse than anyone else against SJ.
  15. they have actually had some good shifts.
