  2. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    I still stand by my analysis at the time. Hard to predict how the whiplash motion would affect him. He still never made direct or principal contact on the ice with his head, so sorry for trying to be on the side of optimism in the midst of literally everyone losing their collective $&!#. The fact that he's still traveling with the team and not going direct to Vancouver is good, as it means any concussions symptoms he had are not as a direct result of a blow to the head, but as a byproduct of acute trauma to the upper body. Edit: Having had several concussions from playing hockey, car accidents etc, I have some direct first hand knowledge on the subject.
  3. Who goes on Pettersson's line to protect him?

    I'll take the under at 3
  4. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    EP40 will be back next game. Watching the replay more closely, he lands on his arm/side. The head doesn't slam onto the ice, chances are he just got the wind really knocked out of him as he wasn't expecting that level of dirty play, and he was near the end of a shift. Both players were also stationary at the time the hit/slam occured, unlike for example when Mitchell destroyed Toews, end result is the forces we're talking about aren't really all that big, relatively speaking. We have 2 days off between games, Pettersson won't let this affect him.
  5. Calling it. If the Canucks are in a position to make the playoffs at the deadline, the Sedins will sign pro-rated 1 year deals and be used sparingly until the playoffs.
  6. New Line Combinations

    Namely Juolevi, Dahlen and Gaudette Good time to be a Canucks fan.
  7. New Line Combinations

    The new Ballard, Raymond and a 1st, except in this case those 3 guys would provide great depth to a contender.
  8. The Curious Case of the Calder Candidates

    We need an active stat tracker in the OP for all likely calder candidates. Pin the thread.
  9. New Line Combinations

    If Baertschi isn't careful he's going to see himself traded away when Roussel comes off concussion protocol. This is his make or break year. I wonder if we could get a decent T6 defenceman for him.
  10. Not sure what you're referring to. They clearly added a stipulation when challenged at the prospect of someone attending who they never expected would actually attend. They were absolutely discriminating because they were non-muslim. That being said, I don't particularly care for the sensationalism of the people being denied access, even if they are fundamentally correct, just not tactful. This is a clear example of a specific segment of the ethnic population in Canada reinforcing their particular values while disregarding the values of the country at large. It is pretty disgusting tbh.
  11. The Johansen for Jones trade is the most obvious precedent. Both were young, up and coming stars in both of their respective positions. When we objectively look at it as fans we are not taking into account what the management of each respective team is thinking vis a vis their needs, their future plans and direction. Only they can know that information, so when we say "X player will never get a player of Y caliber" it's only looking at it from the perspective of the surface level details. Another recent example is Hall for Larsson, we honestly do not know what Chiarelli was thinking, what his thought process was at the time. So I'm unwilling to rule out any possibility, no matter how remote we all think it might be. Horvat has a lot of potential still, is still just 23 and this year will be a big indicator to see if he continues to progress or if he's reached his peak. Remember we all thought his "ceiling" was less than where he is now, both in terms of raw skill and ability. I agree that Sutter will not fetch us the return we need, you need to give quality to get quality, however I am not at all convinced that the Canucks pro scouting is not nearly good enough to warrant even considering trading Horvat. For now, the only trades we've won, are those where we've acquired young unproven players (Dahlen, Motte, Granlund), and in relative terms to what we've given up to acquire them we've definitely won those trades. However trading Horvat represents a major blockbuster level trade, and we haven't seen enough "B tier" trades to be confident in the returns we get for the players we trade out of that magnitude.
  12. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Calgary Flames | Oct. 06, 2018

    Gotta get Boeser going.
  13. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Calgary Flames | Oct. 06, 2018

    I wanna see a top line of: Goldobin - Pettersson - Boeser Next game. Rest of the lines: Leipsic - Horvat - Eriksson Motte - Sutter - Virtanen Baertschi - Beagle - Granlund Press box MDZ, insert Hutton Edler - Tanev Hutton - Stecher Pouliot - Gudbranson Throw Marky back into the fire.
  14. [Proposal] EK in 2019

    I see what you did there. Did you forget that San Jose flipped Hoffman to Florida?
