  1. Really. Billionaire.. president of the most powerful nation to have ever existed.. Won an election with almost all media against him.. I think the guy is a genius. Politics aside. Just my thought. Maybe I'm wrong but the man is living in the white house.
  2. [Signing] Predators re-sign Ryan Ellis

    Josi and Ekholm are signed to unbelievably cheap contracts.. 4 mill and 3.75 mill. Ellis only makes 2.5 per until this new contract kicks in. They're window to win is over the next couple of years before the Dmen start getting paid like they deserve.
  3. Respect to the controller. He remained calm and in control. Happy and relieved no one on ground was hurt. Bad situation which could have ended a lot worse.
  4. Kesler, Johansen exchange jabs over Twitter

    People taking this too serious. They are joking.
  5. Most games will be a challenge unless JB can improve the defense in this team. This is a rebuilding bottom 10 team. Maybe bottom 5. Team will have to work very hard almost every night in order to get a win. It's OK. Keep building thru the draft. We'll be a very good team in 5 years.

    He could easily be 40g guy this season. I think team's will adjust to him this year and he won't get away with the things he did to start the season like last year, plus he'll have to be better on D side of puck, and still pot 35. I don't think he gets less than 35. So 40 is realistic.
  7. Brock Boeser | #6 | RW

    Boeser is a Boss.... Other two kids are, well, kids.... demeanor sets him apart... And I think he kicked ass in that race... Canucks getting loaded with Captain types, Horvat, Boeser, Hughes..... confidence, attitude, cockiness......

    DET head coach Blashill was team USA headcoach at world's and Hughes also played college in their back yard.. Blashill said Hughes gets away with a lot which he won't be able to at the NHL level. Clearly they were concerned with Qs defensive game. Good thing. A dynamic game changing player like this doesn't come along often. He can be great but only IF given the freedom and flexibility to play his style.. over coaching may ruin his career. Glad he's back at college for a year to get stronger and work on his defensive game.. he needs at least one more year of development in college then maybe half a season in Utica. I would not rush him at all.. it's very difficult for a dman to make the jump to NHL at 18 or 19 years old. Let him ripen and develop properly..

    maybe in a few years. But not as young players. Q needs a veteran defensive minded guy to cover for him as he develops, so will OJ. I'd try Tanev and Gudbranson with him. See which one works better. He'd be third pair for the first year and obviously have him on the first unit PP. So it's likely EG will be paired with him.
  11. World Junior Summer Showdown

    Yes I notice how calm and "nonchalant" he looks. I think it comes from Q being so confident. He's so confident its borderline cocky. Maybe not even borderline....lol he is cocky. He knows what he can do in the O zone, for his game to be successful in the NHL he needs to develop his defense. Be a bit more intense when he doesn't have the puck. Be more engaged without the puck. It's almost like he gets bored out there because he's that much better than everyone else on the ice. Its funny he looks like he's disengaged sometimes but he constantly has the puck and everything goes thru him. Once he gets stronger and adds a bit of urgency to his game in the D zone he'll be great on both sides of the ice.

    The things Pettersson does on the ice and now Hughes, Canucks are going to be the most entertaining team to watch for a decade starting in a couple of years. 2 dynamic offensive dynamos who can take the puck over 3 lines and make defenders look like pylons. Can't wait.
  13. World Junior Summer Showdown

    I think most of us are doing same.... Every time Q is on ice everything goes thru him. He easily gets across 2 lines, sometimes 3 lines. There is no comparable to him in the NHL right now. Most exciting and electrifying player on the ice every time he plays.
  14. World Junior Summer Showdown

    Hmm, secretly cheering for the Americans eh. lol... I thought i was the only one. At least to get them to OT and watch Q play 3 on 3 again. Can't get enough of this guy.
  15. World Junior Summer Showdown

    This isn't even a joke anymore. Created another goal for his team. Amazing.... Honestly I can't believe this guy is going to be a Canuck. My dream has been to have a Norris Dman on this team for decades. Finally we have on with potential to win multiple Norris trophies. We got a top 2 pick at 7th overall. In 10 years this draft is going to be Hughes vs Dahlin.
