    Comets Prospect
  1. Edler's great on D, but tonight's game really demonstrated what the team can do when they get shots through from the point. Our defensive depth is much better with him, but it always perplexes me on how he always gets his shots blocked. If you took a shot every time Edler shoots right into a defender, you'd be sloshed every single game. I hope the kids on the blue line continue to rack up points from the point so that by the time Edler returns, Willie has enough confidence in them to diminish Edler's offensive roles.
  2. Thanks. My buddy's got the PPV for free so we're watching it later after a live comedy show.
  3. Come on man keep spoilers out of here. This is a Canucks GDT not an MMA one.
  4. The Comets did well against the Flames last time. I'm excited to see the Canucks in action tonight!
  5. Tryamkin needs to work on the details of the NA game. I don't like his defensive game right now and it's a shame he refuses to go to the AHL.
  6. The damn thing keeps resetting to the main page whenever I'm browsing deep into a thread. This reeks 100% of NHL management pushing their incomplete product.
  7. GÖL! GOAL SWEDEN!
  8. Great pick by Benning. Top quality defencemen are always undervalued until you need one, and it's good to see he saw beyond the hype of the other forwards not taken in the top 4. With the unexpected arrival of Hutton, Tryamkin's debut, and the acquisition of Gudbranson and Juolevi, our defense looks well built compared to the patchwork we had last year. Defence also helps offence too. The sooner we take the puck away from the other team, the sooner our forwards can take the play to the other end of the ice and generate offence. Our team last year was terrible in our own zone, and it decreased our offensive time, increased the risk of injury, and ultimately led to our spiral to the bottom of the league. If the quality of your forwards is an indication of your offensive ceiling, then the quality of your defence is your offensive floor and the Canucks fell through the floor last year.
  9. Either hell froze over or the hockey gods have smiled upon us and granted us a future Stanley Cup during Benning's tenure.
  10. It's like corsi. Every shot, no matter how bad, counts.
  11. At least Nike, Warrior and Bauer actually made the gear that their logos are on. It might be advertising, but it's strictly hockey advertising and not unrelated advertising like Starbucks or JiffyLube.
  12. For all the people saying this doesn't help our offense at all, good defense leads to more offense. The faster we can take back the puck from the other team, the more chances we get to score. Our defense was a fire drill last year and more often than not our players would be stuck in our zone defending for minutes. If we can convert those defensive minutes to offensive minutes, our skilled players would have more opportunities to score, all from being able to get the puck back faster and more frequently.
  13. Anyone want a free HUT pack? I won one on Twitter but don't have the game.
  14. That would be a shark puck if it were any other Canuck. Virtanen has game-changing speed.
