  1. Boston Bruins defenseman Steven Kampfer opts out. Gotta be tough for these players. A fringe guy who knows this could affect his career. Chooses to keep his family safe. https://www.boston.com/sports/boston-bruins/2020/07/11/steven-kampfer-bruins-stanley-cup-playoffs
  2. Thanks for writing and posting this. Great idea for an article and really cool to see all the different Canucks jerseys on the goalies!
  3. Is Big Mac considered a roster player at this point? I don’t see him listed as a Black Ace
  4. I read that the NBA is looking into playing out their season at Walt Disney World. Seems like that would be a great location for the backdrop of games (without fans). I started thinking about possible sites for the NHL to play if the season resumes. Instead of playing in an empty stadium, where would you like to see hockey games played? It would be incredible to have games played on a mountaintop glacier or frozen lake (if there are any at this time of year). Lake Louise looks fantastic in the winter and I’m sure the hotels could use the business of the NHL. Similar to the Outdoor Classics, you could play the games outside. The camera shots would be incredible (especially from above with drones) and I think it would be way more interesting than playing games inside an empty stadium. Without having to play for the fans in a home stadium, the location could really open up and grab the attention of fans worldwide! The ice surface won’t require the protective measures for the fans (netting/glass) which could really free up the location as well. Still need the boards, but maybe use plexiglass to open up the viewing angles? What would be some other interesting locations? Times Square (if you could keep the streets closed) Central Park Stanley Park There could be some interesting marketing opportunities with some incredible backdrops, especially while the world waits for live events to restart.
  5. I was always a fan of ( 2x Selke winner ) Mike Peca. I was disappointed to see him go, but I was pretty happy with getting Mogilny in return. But my vote still goes to Rory Fitzpatrick #VoteForRory Solid list though! Pretty fun to look back and see some of those names.
  6. I agree with you in that I hope it is not shown during the actual ‘real time’ of the play. I think it might be interesting to watch replays and see how fast the puck was moving from a Pettersson slap shot or Boeser wrister. Hopefully the league isn’t so excited about their new toy that it is all they talk about. Mild use (like in baseball) could highlight some interesting things.
  7. Looks like Benning was able to get Miller out of Tampa Bay at the perfect time. If the cap went up last year, TB might have held onto Miller. With the cap crunch TB was under, Benning was able to trade for a valuable player who may not have otherwise been available for trade. If the cap goes up, the extra salary will not hurt the Canucks; especially at his cap hit ($5.25) compared to the value he is providing.
  8. I’m not sure why people are saying we should trade Bock Boeser. He is young and is continuing to show improvement/growth in his game. I like Toffoli and what he brings, but Brock is projecting as a better player. Toffoli has broken 50 points once in his NHL career. Brock has started his career at mid fifty points and has a higher ceiling as he learns the game. Toffoli brings a great defensive element and a heavy game which I think will play well on the second line with Bo and Pearson. Let Brock play his game with Miller and Pettersson and we have two top lines in the NHL for years to come! Toffoli points in his 7 NHL seasons: 29 49 58 34 47 34 38 current Boeser in his first 3 NHL seasons: 55 56 45 current
  9. I think Adam Fox is an interesting comparable, as they were teammates at Harvard last season. Adam Fox is playing for the Rangers this season and is doing very well as an NHL rookie. In his 3rd and final year at Harvard, Fox had 48 points in 33 games and was a plus 23. Fox currently has 31 points in 60 games with the Rangers, while being plus 14. Rathbone is a year younger than Fox, but played an extra year in college prep., so this current year for Rathbone (year 2) is comparable to Fox’s 3rd year at Harvard. The difference being that Fox had 3 years of playing against college students, while Rathbone has had 2 years of playing against college students.
  10. Carson Focht with two goals tonight in a 6-5 overtime win. Woo had the primary assists - Focht Woo
  11. Jett Woo with 3 apples against Kelowna in a 6-5 comeback win. The Hitmen were down 5-1 and came back to win it in overtime. Woo’s assists were all primary including the assist on the OT game winning goal. Two of his assists were helpers on goals by Focht setting up one of the funnest phrases in hockey: Focht-Woo
  12. Apparently, a third of the fees are currently being paid out to lawyers. Both from ICBC and the personal injury lawyers earning 30% commission from the injured parties. By cutting out the lawyers, that money will go directly to the parties involved. The CBC did an interview with Horgan and ICBC. These were some of the items mentioned (this is just my recollection, not direct quotes). People will be rewarded for not using a lawyer to take ICBC to court, further driving up costs.
