  1. [Waivers] Jordan Schroeder

    No surprises here. Pulled for the guy most of his career but I knew his chances were slim to none since the beginning.  Good luck in whatever future career you choose Mr. Schroeder.
  2. [Report] Brandon Dubinsky suspended 1 game

    The cross check to the back of the neck was particularly nasty. Figured the NHL would protect its poster boy a bit better than that.  Oh well, the Wheel of Justice giveth and taketh away in equal measures.
  3. The Walking Dead Thread

    Thought last nights episode was better than the last few.  Ending was pretty interesting as well..... So ready for "No Way Out"  which was an amazing story in the books.
  4. NHL to have cocaine testing by end of season

    I'm sure there are teams and players that will find their way around any problems with the testing. It's the same in every sport.
  5. [PGT] Devils 3-2 Canucks

    Back to backs like this always create an amusing hodgepodge on the Canucks talk section. You get the threads of people super excited about the previous win, willing to bet their bottom dollar that the Canucks have turned it around and are Cup bound.....right next to the doom and gloom crowd that hate everyone and want the entire team traded. It's a bit jarring to look at but it's pretty funny.
  6. I Think Alex Edler is a Liability

    CDC has been guilty of many things over the years....but overrating Edler is definitely not one of them. He had a good year last year and silenced some critics but if you were on these boards during the Torts regime it was if every move he made was under a microscope. I think most fans would agree that he isn't a #1 guy but he's the closest thing we got with no visible help on the horizon.  It wouldn't be as bad if Hammy wasn't on such a vicious decline but it is what it is...we just have to hope that our super thin blueline is bolstered in one of these drafts because I think people hoping Subban is the saviour of our defense corp are in for a rude awakening if he makes the big club.
  7. Who will be the next coach of the Vancouver Canucks

    Honestly, i'm not sure what a lot of the people that are panicking expected out of this team. Look at the roster, really look at it.  It's not that pretty and you can only gift wrap it so much before someone realizes its not the sparkly present that they really wanted it to be. The club got off on the right foot, which is great but we are quickly coming back down to earth and the euphoria some were experiencing is wearing off.  This is fine, and mostly expected for those of us that started the season with tempered expectations.  It's not the season where we win the Cup and it may be a challenge even to win a playoff spot, that is the reality and no amount of optimism or disappointment in the players/coaches is going to change that. Just watch the games and support your team, win or lose.
  8. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    Rousey knocked off her high horse. Nice to see karma still plays a part in todays world.
  9. The puck stops at hamhuis

    Hamhuis has done a lot for the club since he came onboard, and was instrumental in helping us make it the last cup Final. I'd even hazard to say when he went down against Boston that it was the nail in the coffin for the dream of the Grail that year. He definitely deserves more respect from the fanbase than he is getting...that being said this is a "what have you done for me lately" kind of league and he (like a lot of players wearing the blue and green) are well past their expiration dates.  Honestly there isn't much to do for it except be patient because the Canucks are in a re-tooling phase and no big moves can be spotted on the horizon to improve the team.
  10. Canucks fans have suffered the most, says Hockey News

    I'm not as young as I used to be, but at this point its not even about me. Just want that cup for my dad before he goes.  I started seriously following the team in the early 90's but he's been doing it since they came into the league. That is indeed a lot of suffering.
  11. It actually looked like Landeskog could have drilled him a lot harder than he actually did.  Was kind of a weird hit but i'm not sure if it deserves a suspension considering the recent Larsson ruling. Nasty sucker punch though.
  12. So basically the same teams everyone says they want to be traded to.  
  13. Burrows to meet with NHL re TooToo

    Did Lucic get a hearing for giving Weiss a death threat in the handshake lineup a couple years ago? I can't recall.
  14. NHL to revisit compensation for hiring coaches

    I'd say its probably about 50/50 considering league history on whether or not the Canucks hold onto that 2nd rounder.
  15. Burrows to meet with NHL re TooToo

    Haven't really heard of anything like this happening since Sean Avery. Will be interesting to see what comes of this considering chirping/trash talking is such an integral part of being an 'agitator' type hockey player. Will this put other players like Marchand, Gallagher and Perry on notice?
