  1. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Does anyone know what time the draft lottery is on Saturday?
  2. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Does anyone have, or know where or if I can find an archived stream of the full game? I missed it and it feels like I missed out on some awesome canucks history and would kill to see the whole game. Apologies if this has been asked already
  3. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    Which club if ya don't mind my askin
  4. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Jett woo would be a good pickup in the second round
  5. [Waivers] Corrado (Pit) Brossoit (Edm)

    Gotta feel for Corrado. I was happy when he went to Toronto. However, they screwed him over more than we did! His career was pretty much ruined because he wasn't quite good enough to slot in to the lineup on a regular basis, but showed enough promise that he was too valuable to risk being waived. As a result, the years of playing time most crucial to his development were spent withering away in the press box. I have no doubt that he would have at least been a bottom pairing d-man had he been given the proper time to find his game at the NHL level.
  6. [Report] Anthony Duclair requests trade

    I wish. To get Chychrun I'd imagine we would likely have to add a high pick, 1st or 2nd as well as one of our better prospects
  7. William Lockwood | RW

    Seems that way. But could also be them giving him a lesser role to rest up his injury against a weaker opponent/less meaningful game. Saving him for a tougher team knowing the reckless style he plays with. Could also just be bottom of the chain though haha
  8. William Lockwood | RW

    Found him (massive hit)
  9. William Lockwood | RW

    Is Lockwood not playing tonight for USA?
  10. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    Brannstrom is looking good. Dahlin and pettersen as well. that nylander pettersen line is showing no signs of chemistry whatsoever though. Maybe it's just nylander. Man he's been bad
  11. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    https://www.svt.se/sport/ishockey/video/videoEpisod-15971494/ if you have a swedish vpn you can watch it on here in better quality. Still in Swedish, but seemingly a legal stream. And now I don't speak Swedish but the commentators have hardly shut up about pettersen. Pregame they were talking about him and showing highlight videos, intermission was all about him too with a feature and interview. Have heard his name more than any other that's for sure. They seem very high on him
  12. To Van: Huberdeau To Fla: Gudbranson Baertschi Goldobin What are your thoughts on the value of this trade? Florida is rumoured to be very interested in re acquiring Guddy and with the hockey world seemingly in doubt about him re-signing here, Florida seems like a good partner. They also acquire Sven Baerstchi; who can provide second line scoring for the Panthers in the present, with potential to still improve in the future, as well as Nikolay Goldobin; who has serious top 6 potential for the future but may never get the chance with the Canucks. Vancouver gets Huberdeau (who I can't quote any sources but have heard through the grapevine that the Canucks have been interested in since Benning took over), a young 1st liner who legitimately could turn the Horvat, Boeser line in to a powerhouse. Let me hear some feedback
  13. Here's my summary from the GDT Final thoughts on some players performances this weekend: Juolevi - hit and miss. Runs a power play quite well and had a few good rushes. Looks like he's gained strength but doesn't quite know how to use it yet. Not worried about him, his style is better suited for more structured systems. Bo was the same way in the prospects tourney coming from London. Passing to where players should be, not where they are. Boeser - Definitely looked reserved. Would've liked to see the speed he has reportedly gained over the summer. He was the best player on the ice when he wanted to be and easily could've had 2 or 3 goals in his two games. Demko - Looked very composed. Further along in his development, you can tell. Made some hard saves look easy. Let in some goals he shoulda saved. C'est la vie. He's gonna be good. DiPietro - Very raw still but has the potential to be solid. Hung out to dry in his game. With more technical training he could be something. Could go either way. Lind - Best player on the ice against the Jets. Not good against the Flames. Better again against the Oilers. Excellent vision. Protects the puck well and looks big on the ice. Will never be a powerforward but if he adds mass and speed can be a force. Gadjovich - Possibly the most consistent Canuck IMO. Good positioning and battles hard in front of the net. Never noticed him do anything exceptionally good, nor exceptionally bad. Not as slow as I've heard, but could be faster. Don't think he'll ever be a player who crushes people, despite what the fan base wants. Chatfield - Most consistent and best defence man. Good speed, positioning and even showed some offensive prowness. Great signing. His floor is likely a Frank Corrado type, but could definitely exceed that. Brisebois - Stylistically comparable to Juolevi and had a very similar tournament to him. Plays a quiet style but showed some quarterbacking ability as well. Carcone - Alex Burrows 2.0 hopefully. Liked his grit in the first game. I wondered if there was more to his game cause admittedly, I didn't know too much about him. Against the Oilers he showed NHL speed, hands and shot and was probably the best player on the ice. Could've had 4 goals ezpz. Can he put it together and make the big club? First he needs to prove himself in the AHL, but I wouldn't count him out. He could be a player for us in the future. Stewart - You can tell why the Canucks drafted him, signed him and have given him such a chance just by looking at him. Unfortunately despite being one of the oldest players he showed little on the ice. Laplante - Tenacious, gritty and tough. Has decent speed and showed some hands, but only time will tell if he can keep up in the NHL MacEwen - I saw a lot of people praising him on here, but honestly from what I saw I wasn't too impressed. He wasn't bad, but wouldn't consider him a standout. Played about the same as McKenzie who was perhaps more physical but lacked speed Molino - Probably the fastest player in the tournament. Perhaps can play out a Hansen or Raymond type career but will need to hone his craft in the AHL for a while first and at 23, he is already one of the older people at camp. Stukel - Speed and dangles. That's about all there seems to be to stukels game. He can be tenacious at times, but his one trick pony will likely not get him to the big leagues. Thats all the big ones off the top of my head. In terms of invitees, Moynihan and Irving were probs the most noticeable. D'aoust showed some tools at times, think he's on an AHL contract. Garteig looked solid, wouldn't count him out yet

  15. Yo it says in the post this will be on CBC but on my tv it says they are showing the Pittsburgh game. Can someone confirm CBC is in fact showing this?
