  1. Seeing the bright side, and why you should too...

    the word tanking just makes me think we are taking away the players incentive to win. if fate drops to the bottom, then okay.
  2. Seeing the bright side, and why you should too...

    to tank, means to lose on purpose. i wouldn't wouldn't follow a team that set themselves up to lose on purpose. if the team is trying to win but lose, then high draft picks are a reward. constant losing does things to the players. people talk about hope. the players need to have hope too. they need to feel that in every game, they have a chance to win. they need confidence that, they can win. you never want losing to be your mindset.
  3. my xmas wish would be that fans don't get too high after a win or too low after a loss. they are just a group of guys trying to give us their best game. sometimes we get it and sometimes we don't.  sometimes, they will just play better teams than they are. 

    going from the stanley cup parade after wins or plans to gut team after a loss, is a little much.

  8. Disney buys Fox for $52bn

  9. This Team Has No JAM!

    we could always trade boeser to edmonton for lucic. then pettersson and lind for muscle. then we'll be tough but not have any goal scorers for our future.
  10. [PGT] Nashville Predators vs. Vancouver Canucks

    i think benning wants to draft skill and trade for toughness. he has picked up some toughness but they still have to be able to play hockey. those types are hard to get. plus they have to have speed.
  11. [Report] Canucks recall Ashton Sautner

    what we should be deciding, is what can we realistically expect from this roster between now in the end of the season? wanting JB to move prospects out for player that can salvage this season? or holding fast and wait till our future arrives? you can't have it both ways. if you trade your vets for draft picks, it won't change this year. we could rush our prospects and maybe stunt their growths, or we can suck it up like the team is trying to do until help arrives. JB can't just go to the grocery store and buy goal scorers, tough guys and front line players. only cdc can do that.
  12. [PGT] Nashville Predators vs. Vancouver Canucks

    it is tough watching our team outplayed so badly, but they are just out classed talent wise right now. when the rebuild fills this team with it's prospect, we will finally see a competitive team. we look forward to our line up being, horvat, boeser, pettersson, dahlen, gaudette, lind, gadjovich, virtanen, sutter, granlund, juolevi, chatfield, baertschi and maybe pouliot. also demko and depietro.
  13. [PGT] Nashville Predators vs. Vancouver Canucks

    rebuilding, with most pieces not here yet. with the pieces here, being horvat, boeser, virtanen, not sure which d-men are part of it. the team is trying to hold things together until the new core arrives. they are in tough but they deserve our support, and understanding of the situation they are in. the team is just not good enough right now to make their fans proud. i thank them for this difficult situation they are trying to get through, have you ever played in a game where you've been miss-matched .? you try your best but your just not good enough.
  14. Ask Cramarossa Anything

    you better not invite alf over then.
  15. [Rumor] Canucks shopping for top 9 forward

    i guess it matters what he is willing to give up to get one. we don't have higgins and vey anymore. everyone wants to move players they perceive as goat, to get what they want.
