  1. Happy Birthday, Loui Eriksson!

    Happy Birthday Loui! I thought that he’d have a bounce back season last year and was underwhelmed but I’m willing to give it another try! Come out from under the twins shawdow, muck your way to the crease and bat in a couple dozen. Your destiny awaits as your game regains form!
  2. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    Yes, it’s pretty brutal (the preseason schedule) why do we always have midweek games? Three in a row, I’m an absolute diehard but I find three midweek games in a row a stretch. My buddy that I share the two seats with is a new parent, like his wife is going to let him be away every night for three days. Is this a cost saving measure? Not to mention, no Holiday games this year. There better be lots of promotions, this year, it’s like we get punished being Canuck fans with the product on the ice and the product off the ice. With the dwindling #’s renewing, they better focus on us a bit more, rather than spending their time recruiting future STH. The team improving will do that anyways. kinda ranting, I was realistic going into this but this preseason schedule, kinda got me riled up! Anyways, I’ll be happy when the Canucks are back on the ice. Prospects game should be fun to watch.
  3. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    Just a thank you to him! I’m here in Herning Denmark whatching the World Championships. I’ve been yelling in the Team Canada (Peters) coaches ear to play BO more!! He’s literally getting very little ice time out here. Vancouver born and raised and I’ll recommend the World Hockey Championships to any hockey loving fan! This is truly amazing! Oh ya! back to #40 he was sick in the Swedish game I saw in Copenhagen, such bad luck... Gord Downie once wrote a song.. ”It can’t be Nashville every night” Pettersson is going to be a star...{microphone drop}

    Any Swedish fan who has contributed to this thread PM me He’s going to be a terrific player, no doubt!
  5. [Report] David Backes suspended 3 games

    Definitely suspension worthy. I would have gave him 4 games in the SCF... Ill never forgive the league for that ruling.
  6. 2017-18 Season Tickets Thread

    Good afternoon everyone! What an exciting game that last one was! Both Vamcouver and New York were going all offense. I hope the rest of the season is played with as much tempo. So I have a small dilemma, I’ve gifted my pair of tickets (Season ticket holder 308) to the game tonight to some friends in town from Norway (I know I’m sometimes too nice haha) and I still feel like going. I thought I’d ask if Anyone on here has a single they were willing to sell at market rate. Figured to ask here before trying out the third party sites or god forbid, buying at the plaza. P.M. Me if you have one that you’re willing to part with. If not, no worries. Hope everyone enjoys the final stretch of the season! Go Canucks Go!!!

    Renewing as well. Like the poster above said, the games have been fun this year, the future appears to be bright and I want to be apart of it. I’ve been impressed with the extra’s that I’ve received and that’s helped in my decision, I knew going in to this season that there might be a few years where the value wasn’t quite there but there will be a day when all that will change and for some it might be too late.
  8. [PGT] Colorado Avalanche vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Give them a evening where they are appreciated, they do a lot more good than bad around the world. We don’t have a complex and I’m sure they like getting a special night at Rogers. I applause the organization for doing it. The Canucks gave them a good game. Remember, most of them are fans just like us : )
  9. [Trade] Canucks trade Jordan Subban to Kings for Nic Dowd

    I’m so happy to see the Jordan Subban saga end. After watching him play live a few times, it was cringe worthy. He could not play defense. Why would a defenseman, who is poor at defense ever get a shot at a regular season NHL game? If he wasn’t related to P.K. He’d never have been on anyone’s radar. After hearing that he was watching Ryan Ellis and trying to emulate his game after him, then seeing him play extremely poor in the preseason ie. gap control, spotting when to pinch, I had completely given up on him. In saying all this, I still wish him luck in his career and hope the best on his journey. He is offensively gifted from the blueline.
  10. [PGT] Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Were you at the game, or are you just deciding things from your TV set? The Canuck fans made a tidy profit this game, selling to Leafs fans, who really didn’t have much to chear about. It’s unfortunate but it’s a good game to recoup some of our season ticket money, hence why we were outnumbered in the lower bowl 3:1. I myself didn’t sell my ticket and I cheered twice as hard as any Leafs fan, in my vicinity. I quite possibly made Anderson cry.. it was either me, or the team playing in front of him.
  11. Dorsett not returning to active roster

    He looked as he always does, not a spotlight guy. It’s bitter sweet, we’ll miss him in our line up but he family will no longer miss him for half the year. I remember reading Brent Sopels wife’s blog about being a hockey widow (figuratively of course) and the toll it takes on a young family. There will be a big adjustment period but hopefully he regains 100% health and is able to live a great life moving forward. I heard plenty of complaints when Jim signed him to that latest contract, but I always believed he was worth every dollar. When a guy is willing to sacrifice his health and well being just to potentially “spark” his team, those are intangibles that not a lot of NHL’s posess. He went out on a high note, mad props to the Larscheid’s! “Derek Dorsett MVP”! #Dorsechkin
  12. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    It’s the Petterson thread! Why don’t you guys just PM each other? I hope when Elias gets here, he takes the #40 I’ve always liked that number on a player. I would get his # & name on a jersey pronto.
  13. [PGT] St. Louis Blues vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Yes, I was at the game and haven't seen a replay yet but it looked like a big jump on the change, unbelievable as all refs and linesmen can make that call and it was pretty blatant from my vantage point.
  14. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    First off, how about that Petterson! I believe he will be a very special player for the Canucks as soon as next season. He’s far exceeding my expectations and he’s looking like he’ll quite possibly get a chance to showcase his skill in the Olympics & World Championships this up coming year. back to the topic at hand haha I was a Giants season ticket holder in 2010 and was lucky enough to attend Canada versus Switzerland in the 2010 Olympics. I remember thinking how crazy it was that this young defensmen, whom I’d be following (armchair scouting) was one week playing against WHL players in Langley (against the Giants as they played a handful of games out of the Pacific Coliseum due to The Olympics) then a couple weeks later, was up against quite possible the best team ever assembled. I mean, even sheltered as a bottom pairing young defensman, he was going up against a third & fourth line of the best players playing the game at that time.
  15. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    I believe Sbisa did it, could very well be mistaken, as I’m going in sheer memory. I believe he played Junior hockey, got a emergency call up to the Flyers and played against the Worlds best that year (2010) in the Olympics. Not sure of his world junior status as the Swiss team might have not qualified that year. That would be my best guess..
