  1. Jalen Chatfield is having a really good training camp so far! He was definitely an under-the-radar player for me until I saw him at the open-invite training camp sessions. 1st star of the game last night and it was well deserved. 3 points! I'm looking forward to seeing how he does the rest of pre-season. If he keeps this up, I'd expect to see him as one of the first call-ups for the big club this year!!!
  2. He's on pace for 90
  3. Jake looked very comfortable out there. Seems pretty relaxed and was chatting up his teammates. Looks like a good team player! When he starts moving his feet, that kid can fly!!!
  4. That was cool of the Canucks organization to open up training camp to the public! I noticed Jalen Chatfield out there quite a bit! Smooth skater and scored three goals in various drills. Seems to be able to get his point shot through the crowd. Looking forward to seeing his progression as camp goes on...
  5. I love seeing Manny's look of disbelief when he realizes that the shoot-out goal wasn't Pettersson's 'sick' move but his 'go-to' move! Looks like Elias has a ton of skill! So much confidence as well. When he says he should give the fans something more on the shoot-out because he is 'under a microscope'...I really like hearing that confidence from a young player!!!
  6. I like the fact that he is learning from older players that have won Stanley Cups! Hopefully he gets the chance to ask them what it takes to win at the highest level. Also gives him a chance to learn a few veteran secrets/techniques from some of the best in the business!! Plus his team looks pretty stacked so hopefully they can win it all!!!
  7. Todd Bertuzzi
  8. According to Pro Hockey Rumours, the average cost per point in the NHL is about $100,000 per point. This is almost exactly where Brandon Sutter is expected to land as well. Plus Brandon plays on the PK which makes him a more well rounded player. http://www.prohockeyrumors.com/2016/07/point-value-deals.html
  9. According to SB Nation 'Eyes on the prize' the average scoring for a 2nd line C is 39-55 points which is exactly where Sutter is on pace to land. http://www.habseyesontheprize.com/analysis/2015/5/31/8693313/first-line-nhl-production-analysis
  10. " I read this and I couldn't believe that the Canucksarmy writer could keep trashing Sutter without doing more research: "In all likelihood, Sutter's just been exceedingly lucky over the course of much of his career" Haha you have to be good to be lucky and lucky to be good! Analytics can paint any kind of picture you want. Be careful when you don't do all the research required to fully understand them.
  11. I like that Subban is going to have to push his way onto the big club. It's been a very long time since we've had internal competition for our defensemen on the team. Speaks volumes about the job Benning has done building the 'D' in the last two years. Hopefully Juolevi and Brisebois will have to compete and challenge for a spot in the following years instead of being brought up for lack of depth.
  12. Looked like a dive by both Anaheim players...
  13. Who is Tom Nilsson and where did he come from...?!?
  14. Down by three goals and I never felt we were out of the game. I didn't know who was going to score for us, but we were certainly getting chances. Last year, if we were down by a goal, I felt like we were in trouble. With this group this year, I felt like we had a chance to come back. I haven't felt that in a while. It's certainly early in the season and the Hurricanes might not be the most structured or talented team, but we got the win and we did it with a come-from-behind victory. Great bonding moment for the team! Beat the teams you are supposed to beat. Especially impressed that we came back to win after a back-to-back night. Usually the team with little rest starts to slow down in the third. We seemed to get stronger as the game went along and then in overtime...wow!!!
  15. 7 points in two games! I bet Benning and Linden are all smiles as they watch team Sweden play their games. I wonder how many Canuck fans are cheering for team Sweden to do incredibly well. I'd love to see a Canada/Sweden final!!! Nice to see a trigger man finish on some great passes by the twins.
