  1. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens at Vancouver Canucks | Nov. 17, 2018

    We will be going on a winning streak as soon as we get Beagle, Boeser and Sutter back....Baer. will take a few games to get going but him and Edler and Nillson should help extend that win streak. If we lose one more...then win 5-6 games in a row....that would put us right back were we were...more or less. AND there would still be 2/3rd's of the season to play. The kids are improving game by game and Gaudette is due for a breakout game...he does a lot of the little things well and his shot is getting closer and the mistakes fewer... Joulevi, MacEwen and Dahlen will be here with the next round of injuries or by the TDL at latest....We will be back in the playoff race soon...

  3. Future, B.C: The Impending Resurgence of the Vancouver Canucks

    Yes...Yes...and Yes...making the playoffs is always beneficial...period....we need more youth yet, but some are in Utica, Gaudette is here and we can pick up some more this year from the middle of the first/second rounds..... ...and finally ....the only thing that remains the same is Bettman's Ref.s calling it for the US teams first, Eastern teams second and anybody but us third....!

    You got the highlighted backwards....Horvat was holding up the team and the Sedins ( except for the last 10 games of the season when the Sedins turned it on)... The Sedins were a turnover factory for the first half or 2/3rds of the season...they were making Edleresque pinches that never worked and were good for giving up at least 2 odd man rushes per game...and they were not scoring... Horvat and Brock were the reason we were winning until Dec.,... Horvat is playing too much the last few games ...I will give you that but anything under 20 minutes for EP is fine...because of the way he is deployed....offensive zone FO's, the PP and he is always the 3rd man high ...so he doesn't have to be mucking it up in the corners, he is the high guy, keeping the pucks in the zone and trying to get our other kids and Dull Zonedout to hit the net when he sets them up...time after time... What EP will be needing is not less ice time but a counsellor to help ease the pain of having no one to pass the puck too if Brock and Baer are out of the lineup. The rest of the kids are going to continue to surprise some people...Jake is on his way, Gaudette is soon to break out.... Motte and Liepsic are starting to adjust and soon we will have Joulevi, MacEwen and Dahlen in the lineup. We are without Beagle, Suter, Edler, Baer, Brock, Nillson and Demko is soon to come ... We have been wanting the kids to play because they can...and they are showing that...4 game losing streak aside. We are a playoff contending team and with any luck on the injury front from here on ...we may be a playoff team come April...!

    Last year we got off to a great start thanks to Dorsett and having a healthy lineup... Once Dorsy went down we still did alright until more injuries hit...and they kept hitting.. This year we have had many....many ...significant injuries ...and we are still 5th in the whole Western Conference ...after a 4 game skid.... Stop putting so much pressure on us fans ...who can actually see what is before our eyes... The kids are alright....!

    Great video...but he forgot one more guy...Zack MacEwen is going to be our best other power forward after Jake...maybe our best even. ...and Jake is going to be a 20 goal guy this year...maybe he hits 30 by the time he is 24 years old.... We are set up for next year and beyond better than the Leafs ...due to there cap struggles...and the Leafs are setup better than any other contending team. If Demko is any improvement at all over Marky and Nillson....we will be a cup contending team in 1 or2 years and for years to come after that...!
  7. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks at Minnesota Wild | Nov. 15, 2018

    That's 3 games now....Pooalot and Dull-Zonedout have given up goals on sloppy, dull-minded, slow to react plays.... They need to step up there game big time or we should cut bait and bring in Joulevi and Brisebois.... I know the Dull one could have had a couple goals if the nets were an inch bigger....but the defensive lapses are brutal....! Still we are in 2nd place in the division without some pretty good players due to injury.
  8. [GDT] Nucks at Wild 5pm Nov 15 2018

    TSN's "Core 4" rankings have us in 4th place for prospects under 24....but we are the highest and one of only 4 teams that have all "A" prospects for our core 4... They also have Joulevi rated a "C" which is too low and they don't know that MacEwen is soon to be a "B" prospect. At least we garnered a bit of respect.... Petey with a 3 point night tonight....5-3 us....
  9. [GDT] Canuckleheads @ Islanders 4PM PST (SNP/SN650)

    The problem is he is leading the AHL in rookie scoring...but people are talking about his improving (but not great) plus/minus.... Oli will be our best offensive D. man once he gets here ...and that will be by the TDL ..at latest...!
  10. This is Getting Harder to Ignore

    I agree with everything but your opening line... All the things you stated actually make the opening line refutable ..in that we are were we are without all those players...when we get those guys back ...plus the young guys (most of the team) keep improving...I don't see any wall to hit. We may go on a 3 game losing streak or maybe 4 but that is about it ...I have stated we will be a playoff contender this year since last spring ...but recently I am calling us a playoff team...we are going to make the playoffs this year...! Just watch...!

    With last year's reffing...Woo would have gotten 2 minutes for Roughing or Boarding and/or 5 for contact to the air around the head...had he been a Canuck... N.B. I think this year's reffing has been all over the place but overall a bit closer to the real world action....hope to see continued improvement.
  12. Olli Juolevi | D

    Good one....and Chabot is looking like a strong Norris candidate already...! Oli is only months away from being our best offensive D.,...!....until Quinn comes...
  13. Quinn Hughes | D

    Just seen the name and thought it must be EP's bro...didn't notice the spelling at the time....I was looking for Rathbone's stats....
  14. Quinn Hughes | D

    I don't get what you are saying...the stats graph doesn't mention Rathbone.....but EP's brother has 11 points in 6 games... I just clicked on the PPG column and that is where Rathbone is ahead of Makar...at 2 PPG....EP's brother is just behind those 2 in PPG....!
  15. Quinn Hughes | D

    He has been playing with a groin issue...so 7 points in 7 games is extraordinary while being hobbled with Brockitis... No worries here....
