  1. Bo Horvat has been absolutely terrible this season

    I expected this to be a difficult season for him, he played great when we had a good matchup for him but this year he is playing hard mins.  He will learn and grow and I'd expect a better season from him next year.
  2. Feedback and Bugs

    I'm having an issue (on iPhone) that evrey time I open a topic it takes me to the first page even if I'm past the page or even posted on a later  page.  Frustrating to find your way to where you left off evrey time, is this a setting issue?
  3. The 3 "bad" trades...

    we picked up markstrom for Lou, I'd like to see how he works out before saying we lost.  I was happy just getting rid of Lou to be honest, he was done here. 
  4. Horvat or McCann

    I would say Bo is playing much more difficult mins and is ajusting well, I think this is going to be a bit of a slump year for him but only because he's gained the coaches trust and is playing some hard mins.  Next year I bet we see him take what he's learning this year and take it to another level. McCann is getting sheltered mins and doing great, much like Bo last year.  He's looking like he's going to be great.   I think the real question is who will be our first line center and who is second after the twins are gone... If we don't pick up another that is. To me I'd bet McCann is our our top guy and Bo plays second taking the harder matchups vs top lines.   
  5. you left out the part about WD mixing the lines in the third with a lead and the team playing well.  
  6. Tuesday Practice - line ups and tidbits

    I don't like Hanson in the top six and he's in both your options?
  7. Thought I heard burr but I'm not sure.
  8. Horvat play is being dragged down by Vrbata

    I see what your after here but is bata part of a shutdown line... No. This line works if you swap burr and bata but then we have the problem of bata not being a player they want with the twins. I'm wondering how long the kepl vrbata because he's looking to be the odd man out more and more every day.
  9. PGT: Canucks-3 Blues-4

    Are they?
  10. 2nd Line Forechecker?

    I don't recall anyone wishing for dorsett on the second? I saw people asking for Hanson, burr, jake, but dorsett... No
  11. Discussion: Baertschi losing favour with Willie

    In all fairness do you honestly think his not playing is why we lost?
  12. Horvat play is being dragged down by Vrbata

    You don't think he's looked strong on the puck?
  13. Horvat play is being dragged down by Vrbata

    I'd agree that they tried sutter with the twins because they wanted a spot for McCann, I hardly see this as a problem. Sutter has looked good with the twins and mccann is looking good as well. I see the problem as being WD's desire to have a checking/matchup type third line. He could easily try the kid line with bo virt and Sven as our third and try McCann bata Hanson as the second and split the time for first and second equally. Problem is it may work great in some ways but we have no checking line. This is going to be the struggle this year because it's hard to break as many rookies into the lineup and still ice a matchup line. If WD would give in to the fact he doesn't have one and use the twins with sutter as the head to head line we may be ok for the reg season but be in trouble in the playoffs. I'm ok with it but don't get the feeling WD is?

    Sutter is looking great, what games are you watching?
