  1. [PGT] Winnipeg Jets at Vancouver Canucks | Nov. 19, 2018

    Went to the game.... Wow on two levels... Well actually 3. 1st of all... Pettersson is even better live people!!!! Go see him! Forget about the rest of the team... Or the other team for that matter!!! (He simply is better then everyone else)... I mean really wow! 2nd... Winnipeg is a really good team... I mean these guys top to bottom are real solid.... Even with Hellebuck sucking in this game, it looked like an NHL team playing a AHL team. If the Canucks don't win the cup this year... (Yah I know... I'm delusional... I'm okay with that). I hope Winnipeg wins for Canada finally!!! I mean they out shot Vancouver by over twenty!!! And it was still and entertaining game. 3rd... The hot dogs suck!!! And cost to much!!! They said the food would be getting better but I think its worse and costs more!!! Thats my only complaint really. I love this team!
  2. Have to agree.... But the fan in me is really excited to see Virtanen playing shotgun on EP's wing!
  3. 3-1 nucks Pettersson 1 goal 1 assist.

    Great observation! I had to watch the replay 6 times just to try and figure out how the puck was off his stick and in the net.... I'd say 'so quickly' but that doesn't describe the actual speed of that release. Never seen anything like that in hockey.... Yah just Wow!

    I wasn't at Bure's first game but I remember waiting all day to watch his first game as a canuck.... I remember the hype (pre-internet)... There were still a lot of fans both curious and excited to finally see this new addition from the old Red Army team. Bure's first shift was like nothing I'd ever seen before. It was amazing. Way ahead of his time, when it came to powerskating and edgework... and hands... almost at the same level. But what made him so great for so long was also his biggest weakness... He loved I mean LOVED to score! So much so, that he didn't like to (share) pass the puck or use his teammates... A lot of time he didn't need them but in time it soured the relationship between him and some team mates, coaches and fans. There were reports leaked to media at the time, that he wouldn't even listen to coaches game strategies during practice, or participate in drills (later during his tenure with the nucks). So... this is my long winded way of saying that though Bure was so electrifying he was not a COMPLETE player. EP is a very special player... We can all feel and see it unfold before our eyes. It's the same feeling.... That feeling that you get when you know you are seeing greatness unfold before you. That same feeling I had when I watched Bure..... BUT... EP is a team player.... He really cares about his teammates. More than scoring, he really, REALLY wants to win! Because of these character attributes, he (in my books) is already a more COMPLETE player then Bure ever was. When all is said and done, I won't be surprised if he in time becomes a more impact player for the Canucks then Bure. Hopefully he'll stay healthy long enough to prove it to the world in a Canucks jersey!!!

    Yah, read this article yesterday. Great insight as to how hockey players (for Hunters perspective) deal with intimidation. Many, professional or not, do not look forward to dealing with an opposing player that can hurt them and take them away from the game they love and/or the lifestyle that they have gotten use to and rely on. It still really matters in contact sports. There are no guarantees.... Whether you're trying to make it to the 'show' like Woo here or Pettersson, trying to stay and learn to stay away from danger areas and players... Woo is attempting to be that deterrent... That hybrid 'Scott Stevens'... That throwback. That sounds good to me. As long as his body can handle the physical demand and not give out before he makes the NHL.... then we will have a very special player and piece to compete for a Stanley Cup! Thanks for posting.

    sh*°^´" folks! Sorry I'm not stoned right now.... Making to much sense... I'm out till later!

    Yah hold off as long as you can.... It's a kid by kid basis! Bottom line... as we all know is moderation. Teaching by showing the kids respect with the use helps a lot! I have plenty of stories... And even a couple when I didn't moderate myself with booze or weed and showed my kids the aftermath of my choice lol!!! They thought I was kinda weird to show them my state at that time but you know... I think it has workout so far. Both my kids are way more respectful to their bodies and make much better choices (so far... And that I know of) then I at their age. I'm just glad its above board now and can be talked about freely without shame or guilt. Im happy you have that freedom now while raising your kids!

    My kids are grown now... I occasionally smoke with my younger son (19yrs). My older son doesn't like smoking with me. We have once or twice. I think he feels awkward or paranoid around his dad? Lol! I get it! Anyway... When they were growing up I always waited until they were in bed or if in front of them (discreetly) when a party was at our home. But just like you, I just felt spaced out, not connected to them in the way they needed from me... In our system. I'm just not great at multitasking while stoned... That's just me.

    I haven't watched all the games this year but tonight I watched Hutton closely. Actually it wasn't hard to notice him. He was engaged, carried the puck with purpose and confidence. Wasn't timid at all. His skating was strong and decisions were good except the pinch that lead to the 2nd goal... But even that one was mostly Virtanen's mistake.

    Hahaha... Wasn't me!

    Dump and chase... Hard in the corners... Tenacious forcheck... Forwards supporting the D. Perfect road game... And shall I say... Hard to play against! Wasn't pretty but effective against a very talented team.
