  1. [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.
  2. [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.
  3. 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
  4. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    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.
  5. I’ve given him a lot of rope this season and last with my opinion of his play. I’m going to out right and say it. Hutton is a terrible defenseman. He just loves watching the puck durning confusion in front of the net. Take a stick, take a body.. come on, it’s not rocket science!
  6. [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.
  7. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    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.
  8. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    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..
  9. I know comparables have been beaten to death but when you look at the suspension Hansen got for coming down with his glove on Hossa, yet this play only warrants a fine, it really becomes clear that there is a double standard. not to mention the Edler on Hertl, glancing check that didn’t even send him to the ice. It’s frustrating..
  10. Brock Boeser | #6 | RW

    For some reason I feel that a line with Eriksson & Boeser would excel. My thinking is, with Brocks shot, the goalies are going to have trouble with it even if they stop it, Loui can bury the garbage, which is his bread and butter. Eriksson plays an excellent underrated defensive game which will allow Brock to cheap a bit going for steals or being in a good scoring position if a teammate causes a turnover. #6 is going to compliment a lot of lines.

    Is anyone familiar with the South Okanogan Arena, I have seats, row one in the Gasoline Alley section. Where is that located compared to the Ice level/location? Thanks : )
  12. Predicting Canucks leading scorers 2017-2018

    Think it's going to be #21 Hope it's going to be #33 Stoked if it's #53
  13. Petrus Palmu | RW/LW

    I've been to that spot, beautiful! Don't worry I won't tell anyone where it is... I think we can just brush this off from a fan perspective, if he starts trending in a wrong direction then we can get worried. This is the problem nowadays with instant information, years ago we would have never heard of this violation that happened halfway around the world. He's 20 years old and thinks like a 20 year old. That's what I chalk it up to.
  14. 2017-18 Season Tickets Thread

    First of all, beginning a post with "lol" shows the intelligence we're working with here, secondly, why don't I have my season tickets & take a nice vacation. You do realize that there's two teams on the ice? As a hockey fan, I love watching live hockey, thus I feel privileged to be able to attend games of the sport I love, in the best league in the world. I'm sure you'll be a fan again in a couple of years, after your ankle surgery from repeated jumps on and off the bandwagon. -Please don't post in this thread anymore. Thank you in advance.
  15. Do you think the Sedins Retire at the end of this Season?

    I believe that they have a bounce back year this season and preform well. After their contracts are up, they'll sign one year deals till they choose to leave the game. Their next deal will be more than the consensus amount the majority of CDC'ers believe that they're worth, but it will be fair money for what they currently provide. It'll be bedlam on these boards when they sign for 4 & an half. I'd still see that as being fair, even if they play third line minutes. The true value they provide would never be known by anyone who doesn't share a locker room with them. I believe, moving forward, their leadership and core values will resonate in that room for at least a decade after they've retired.
