    If his play keeps up, is Bo in the conversation for the Selke? Once Sutter and Beagle come back, his defensive minutes and amount of face offs will come down. If his offence goes up higher at that point, does he get Selke consideration?
  2. Ok Virtanen Haters... time to man up

    I’m looking forward to seeing what a confident #ShotgunJake can do in the playoffs. I have a feeling he will really become a force when the game gets turned up and more emotion dictates the play!

    It would be a long shot, but certainly fun to watch two brothers compete for the Calder as rookie of the year. I wonder if that has ever come close to happening? The twins might have, obviously, but they had kind of a slow start to their careers in the NHL.

    I sure hope so!!!
  5. "Prospective Seattle NHL team hires former Canucks executive"

    Haha I thought they hired Linden as well and my heart sank! Feel like we treated the Captain wrong somehow... I hope they hire Gillis next! That’d make for an even better rivalry to start off with!!!
  6. Protecting our stars (Poll)

    https://theprovince.com/sports/hockey/willes-musings-elias-petterssons-skill-set-is-unique-in-todays- Interesting note from Ed Willes of the Province: On a related note, in the last three weeks the Canucks have watched the Panthers’ Michael Matheson deliver a hit that knocked Pettersson out for six games, the Golden Knights’ Thomas Hyka knock Sven Baertschi out for five games and counting, the Blackhawks’ Brandon Manning knock Troy Stecher out of a game and the Avs’ Matt Calvert deliver a cross-check to Boeser’s back. Not going to spend a lot of time on this one. If the Canucks aren’t concerned about the liberties being taken with their skilled players, they should be. Hockey has changed a lot in the last 25 years but it hasn’t changed that much.

    ...maybe a ‘Black Ace’ for the nux this season after Michigan wins the Frozen Four...?!?
  8. [PGT] Colorado Avalanche at Vancouver Canucks | Nov. 02, 2018

    If I was told before the game that Colorado would have reduced our goaltending to a .793 save percentage, I most likely wouldn’t have watched the game and I’d have missed an absolute beauty!!! Who am I kidding, I’d have still watched the game...

    Bulldog and ... Olli...?!?
  11. Ben Hutton | #27 | D

    Hutton is starting to look good! I’m glad he was untradeable in the off-season as I’ve enjoyed following him since college and I’m looking forward to seeing how well he develops. Twice nominated as a Hobey Baker finalist as a defenseman, he has a lot of ability to learn the game. Sophomore slump was delivered and looks to be in the rear view mirror. Now as a 25 year old, hopefully he is coming into his own as a young d-man. I know hockey players typically start to physically peak at 24, but I think I’ve read that defensemen begin to figure out and understand the game by 26. Hopefully, we will see this trajectory with Ben Hutton!
  12. Adam Gaudette | #88 | C

    I believe Gaudette played just a little over 8 minutes in the game against Pit, but he was noticeable, at least on a couple shifts. His speed stands out and he seems to be able to create chances for himself. Looking forward to seeing his development!

  15. The Curious Case of the Calder Candidates

    The Calder Memorial Trophy is an annual award given "to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition in the National Hockey League (NHL)." It is named after Frank Calder, the first president of the NHL. Serving as the NHL's Rookie of the Yearaward, this version of the trophy has been awarded since its creation for the 1936–37 NHL season. The voting is conducted by members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association at the conclusion of each regular season to determine the winner. http://www.nhl.com/ice/rookies.htm
