    Comets Prospect
  1. Olli Juolevi | D

    He actually seems to have a laser wrister from the point.
  2. Can't stand the TSN 1040 Morning Show

    I actually like 650 quite alot. There seems to be less of a focus on the “cult of personality” around the hosts than on 1040 and also have a more possitive, less sensational focus with regards to canucks coverage. Additionally 650 has great guests and regular contributors. It stands to reason that the competition between the two stations will result in a better product for the consumer. I only wish they each take commercial breaks at alternating times so I would never have to listen to that advertising filth.
  3. Sam Gagner, why the hate?

    I have been surprised at Gagner's intensity and willingness to "mix it up". You can criticize many of his deficiencies but he does not 'mail it in'.
  4. Tyler Madden | C

    That goal Madden scored was an NHL goal that beats NHL goalies. I'll take suspect contracts on bottom six forwards all day if Benning keeps piling up above average talent in the prospect pool.
  5. Petrus Palmu | RW/LW

    He is really interesting as a prospect, the size thing is quite novel and provides great fodder for us fan types. He has a very unique build... like a power lifter or a wrestler but with the fast twitch muscle needed for the speed of the NHL game. From the tape I watched he seems to be able to move through traffic and attack the net without his size being a barrier. Of course, the tape was all highlights of his points and not of his failed attempts due to being defended by a 6ft+ defender (of which I'm sure there must be plenty... tape and defenders). The fact that he won top rookie in his pro league last year only increases the intrigue.
  6. Petrus Palmu | RW/LW

    This guys highlights from last year are outstanding . He doesn't have the puck on his stick for long and scores in many ways .
  7. Olli Juolevi | D

    Just watched Olli’s highlights from the past season. Very impressive offensive game.
  8. We needed quality bodies. After the injury bug hit the last few years we had to ice some garbage lineups. These signings today make us a much more legitiamate nhl product on the ice.
  9. Toni Utunen | D

    ...and think of the savings in broken sticks.
  10. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    The bottom line is: we don’t know. Look at Barzal. His ability to skate and make plays in traffic led to a very succesful campaign. But on the other hand, the Sedins started slow and needed years to develop their game. We just don’t know.... but one thing seems certain, the league has never been so well suited for young, light, fast and skilled players to pay immediate dividends. I’m remaining cautiously optimistic!
  11. Would Dipietro + get the conversation started?
  12. my thoughts exactly, just give us 30 points (10g 20 a) and I'm thrilled. That being said, I was happy to see the metrics explaining the poor point production, ie : Stetcher's lack of offensive ice time.
  13. [Signing] Canucks sign Elias Pettersson

    This is very good.
  14. Pettersson signs entry level contract

    Very pleased.
  15. Troy has the intangibles (IQ, desire) that propel him further up the lineup than his size and skill set would otherwise dictate. He is similar to Bulldog in this respect. As this team fills out the back end with quality talent, Stetcher will reap the rewards of playing with more skilled and calmer partners. I'm really rooting for this guy!
