  1. Just what I was thinking... No pressure on the kids, except what they put on themselves. Canucks historically have been overachievers when underdogs and somehow crumble when favorites. We changed the narrative this year so far, as we were slight favorites coming into the wild series. Now going forward they can play free, have fun and learn. I like our odds!
  2. Absolutely agree... I was only being half sarcastic (if that makes any sense). I'm hopeful as well. It's just blows my mind that it's even in the realm of possibilities...
  3. Appreciate your post... First time in franchise history having so many 1st rounders workout... Just waiting for Podkolzin to have your statement be 100% verified Should be a reality by 2021.
  4. Keep this quote... Pull it out in 3 or 4 years... I'm hopefully it ages well!!!!
  5. That's all that matters. That last game was a sight to behold. Watching him work his way through traffic WITH contact... So much confidence. Just so AMAZING and just the beginning. When we got Boeser and watched his rookie year and Calder finalist, I was overjoyed to finally see a solid piece of the future in place beyond Horvat. Then Petey was drafted. Watched him take the league by storm and win the Calder. How could it get any better right?! Franchise center wow!!! Then we draft Hughes a year later... I wasn't sure he was the best choice but I understood he definitely dropped to us so I get when management went for him. And now... After last night's game I'm thinking... This guy is already the best player on this team... Which I can't even believe in saying... BUT come even as early as next year top 2 or 3 in the entire league... And just getting better. Man just wow. Sooo happy to finally get players of high end hall of fame caliber on our team and still so young! I just don't understand... Despite management mistakes... How could any canuck fan be upset or want Benning gone? I mean, Podkolzin and Hoglander aren't even here yet. Rathbone isn't either. Juolevi is just starting and looks good... AND though we could have drafted Tkachuk... He's elite in talent but lacks in quality character no thanks we already had one of those in Kesler.
  6. Ferland Petey Boeser Pearson Horvat Toffoli Gaudette Miller Virtanen Sutter Beagle Motte
  7. Watching the Blues Avalanche game... Commentators are talking about the poor ice. Also mentioned it during Edmonton Hawks game. That may a hard adjustment for canucks and favors the wild for their playing style. These first 2 games will be hard for van to play their game. Will have to adapt and do a more dump and chase style, play patient opportunist hockey. Don't expect many goals off the rush.
  8. Green said Virtanen was part of the main group in practice today along with Eriksson (practiced with 14 forwards MacEwen being the extra skater). There's to much hand ringing going on here. Travis knows Jake inside and out. He knows how to motivate him. Travis is letting Jake know that nothing's being handed to him. He's got to earn it. You can't rest on the successes of the regular season. This is about now... And Green is getting Jake prepared because Jake needs that push. He'll be in by game 2 at the latest.
  9. That's a tongue twister there... Am I stoned...?.... or do you not make any sense at all?
  10. Okay... Fer is in then... Yahhh... Just stay healthy.... AND EAT!!!!
  11. +1 Campbell or Rafalski shouldn't and won't be in the conversation... Housley on the other hand.... Good comparison. This young man... Short of major injuries, will be a hall of fame player. He's already changing what defence puck possession style is becoming in the new area of hockey. Quinn is a big part of it.
