  1. Tkachuk's "A" means "Actor". So far, there have been so many bad penalties called by the refs this season. It's one thing calling it tight and it's another thing calling phantom penalties.

      yep, I wish we drafted him instead of OJ as well

      **** that. I don't want entitled scum on our team

  2. Looks like Pettersson doesn't need a twin. He can have a telepathic link with any teammate he chooses to.

      Him and Goldy sure are building some beautiful chemistry though.

       

      Think Id rather see Leipsic with them as Eriksson is ok but they need an energy board grinder

      the line has 9 points in 2 games

      and you want to pull loui off ? because why?

      you really think that will enable the line to score more ?

      In my mind, it doesn't matter who plays with Elias. He makes whoever he plays with look good so putting Loui with him is fine.

  3. Enjoying some 2019 NHL Draft articles right now. Including this: https://canucksarmy.com/2018/09/25/2019-nhl-draft-consolidated-industry-rankings-for-september-2018/

      We need to get used to the idea right away of consolation prizes in drafts.

      If we don't get Jack, I think Dylan Cozens is my guy although I also like Vasily Podkolzin.

  4. Can't wait to see Manukyan in action. Also, can't wait to buy his Canucks jersey.

      Manukyan the canuckian? o_o

    2. Baer.

      Baer.

      Its too bad he wont able to go on the rides at playland if he ever comes to Vancouver

      he's just 1 inch shorter than Martin St. Louis.

  5. While overall light on weight, heavy on skill and tops in character. Still stoked about lucky 7. Grade: A-.

  6. Afaik, he was the only one in the NHL Combine who just arrived from a completely different time zone. Most of the other prospects have been here for weeks. I don't know about you guys, but in my case, even when I was much younger, it took me at least 1 week to recover physically from the jet lag. With any sort of jet lag, measurements of his physical abilities would have been completely inaccurate and would have defeated the whole purpose of the Combine.
  7. So do we send the Sedins to the draft lottery next year (you know, Sedin brothers and Hughes brothers) or do we send Quinn Hughes?

  8. Apparently, he was number 3 in their draft board. That said, thank goodness Zadina did not drop that far or else there would have been a big controversy here. But then again, Zadina has never really wanted to play in Vancouver anyways whereas this was Hughes' number 1 choice!
  9. I remember wanting to watch Hughes at the World Hockey Championship and thinking, "I don't need to know his number. All I need to do is look for the tiny boy playing among men." Lo and behold, I couldn't find him. I had to look up his jersey number. The kid didn't look small at all - I guess he was Bruce Banner off the ice and the Incredible Hulk on it. In fact, he managed to move himself from the 7th D to a regular top 4.
  10. Call it a hunch, but I think the Canucks will draft a D-man with a Biblical name (either Adam or Noah).

      we would all be so blessed then

       

  11. Congratulations, Alex Ovechkin! Well-deserved. Champion.

  12. If I dreamt that we traded Hutton, Baertschi, our 2nd for Lucic and #10 overall, is that a nightmare?

      Tbh I’d do that. Adding another top 10 pick to take on Lucic’s contract? Done.

      For a nightmare trade the value is pretty even. Better than most proposals on this site

      Lucic is a bum.  He had his chance to play here so why would we want to bring him in? Not to mention he is a huge gamble and the canuvks have to hope Eriksson can bounce back (imo with a younger quicker line up he will)

  13. So the Mariners are 15 games over .500 and the run differential is ONLY +17? Talk about clutch!

  14. A few hours later, and I'm still disappointed Canada won't be playing in the WHC finals...

  15. Last night, I dreamt of leaving my body, arriving at a pearly gate and an old white man approaches me and says..."Laurel or Yanny?" :P
