  1. Still not sure about the coach

    you clearly are not a tanker and are missing adept elements and moves required to assist the tank not much the canucks are doing presently appears to be in serious pursuit of wins this season they are clearly beat up and injured but they have also continued a trend of being close to the worst team in the nhl after january the past 3 seasons
  2. (Proposal) Unloading Eriksson

    why would montreal want all our garbage to move up a few places in the draft?? seems a bit crazy to me they really will take 9 million in annual contract value off our hands ?
  3. and i disagree backstrom is more valuable to the caps then ovi goalies can dominate as well which effects the game's outcome equally as much as a player who carries the play but i sense you simply wish to play word games
  4. (Discussion) Realistic D rebuild?

    so you really think that will happen ? draft bouchard and plug him right in the line up and he will simply just succeed ? no development time required ? man .. it is well known dmen need development time usually i mean just look at joulevi he is following the more normal development path the expectations on here for dmen are far fetched generally and when those expectations are not met management is then blamed for drafting errors and told it should have drafted a new shiny toy forward who is already performing in the nhl goalies also require development time demko is getting that right now generally you cannot bypass that stage for a young player to successfully transition to the nhl
  5. a bit of revisionist history i think hank should have won because he carried the team and drove the play other teams were not giving priority to planning to stop any other canuck at that time the reason why other canuck players had offensive success is because the focus on hank freed them up more when you carry a team, or dictate the play, you deserve the award because you are so valuabke mackinnon does that presently and is worthy the suggestion that brock is worthy is far fetched in my view (i know you did not suggest this though) he does not carry the play, drive the play, carry the team he is just a deadly finisher who knows how to get in the right areas to unleash his deadly shot the canucks presently have no one who drive or carries the play
  6. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Arizona Coyotes

    boy the sedin hate is pretty strong but whatever works for you seems a tad scape goating
  7. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Arizona Coyotes

    well toews is a tad more talented then bo but nice try
  8. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Arizona Coyotes

    what is hank roadblocking ? the team's ability to win ? and you are blind if you cannot see losing is bothering bo a lot so there is that too and that is what i commented on and you sure read a lot into bo's head with your views of him
  9. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Arizona Coyotes

    he is not the logical choice just the early choice might be a good idea to wait a year and see what the leadership skills of our young talent might be i'm still very open to brock being considered for captaincy
  10. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Arizona Coyotes

    um you stunned me at kane he is your hope for a leader ???? come on get real. .... he'll just add pressure to whoever the captain is
  11. Offseason Moves (Proposals)

    well in your view it is largely still to be drafted or very young talent acquired in a trade so you are prepared to wait the 5 plus years for this young d to fully develop? i think since they take longer to develop more should have been drafted in the same time frame as demko since goalies also take time to develop and demko is within a year of being ready no young d are yet so a bit of a backwards way to go about a rebuild if you wish to rely so heavily on the draft for your future d
  12. Nikolay Goldobin | #77 | LW/RW

    very hard to know what to do about goldy what his game lacks is pretty clear and would be relatively easy to fix if he wanted to make changes he already has good body size, is stocky, decent skater, high level skills he needs to drive the net a lot more, play in the harder areas and work a bit more on defensive pursuit so it's all mental... he should spend each period reviewing these 3 things and ensure he demonstrates at least one of these attributes each shift everyone will notice the change in his game then i find it somewhat baffling that he seems unable to focus his game more in this manner surely he must realize his days are numbered with this team and likely the nhl
  13. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Arizona Coyotes

    do we really want to also add the pressure of captaincy to this young talent he is an emotional guy and this is already wearing him down nice to have an emotive captain... in the messier mold.. but not if he struggles this much when the going is tough we need hank back for another season as a buffer let bo sort out his game a bit more first maybe after need next season the roster will be more stable and we will see some solid direction so that he can then captain a team that is not floundering so badly
  14. Offseason Moves (Proposals)

    i appreciate your sentiments and approach no reaching here on what vancouver could do to ensure the transition continues but i really really doubt this stand pat approach (except for gaudette, and i doubt goldy will make the team) will happen how will they sell any season tickets with that line up? how has the d improved to provide some hope for that next season? and i really think we need 1 goalie replaced and i am pretty certain steps will be taken to replace dorsett's role in the line up archie is fine as a place holder, but a step up in talent is needed for that role i think your proposal is weak in that it really does not address the defense deficiencies on this team canucks cannot endure another season with effectively the same d corp
  15. Proposal - Summer moves.

    if you could make those first 2 trades happen that would be kind of amazing the balance is less important to the long term success of the canucks as we will have a high draft pick no matter what gaudette remains our property vanek is not vital sedins returning or not is not vital either
