    One foot in the blues...

    Oh, there is a story there. Edmonton signed a free agent in the off season > Georgiev. He's playing well as a backup. Crawford is back from IR after a year. We felt we owed to our guys to back them.
  2. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks at New York Islanders | Nov. 13, 2018

    I'm glad you enjoy it. It did not sound it. Bo is 23, 220 lbs, fast and fighting fit. There is no better time to ride his energy. It made him a champion in junior. A dog with bite instead of bark. It will teach him how to put a team on his back when we truly need it. Marky? Maybe I agree to a point. Its also time for him to be a starter. Or not? I'm going to get behind him & hope he takes it on! We invested in plenty of support this year. And better support. I like all of Beagle, Schaller & Roussell. These guys are dragging guys like Eriksson back to being a competitor. He's played well the last 2 weeks suddenly? So has Jake, so has Hutton, Guddy & even Pouliot. All competing hard! But as injuries happen? Challenge these guys to compete as they would have to in a 7 game playoff series. Eat, or be eaten! That's what builds the team. We either rise with them taking on that challenge? Or with Jack Hughes if they don't. I'll cheer for them whichever way it lands.

    Ok, so we're rolling with the punches. Pavel Zacha sent down, now he's back. Hopefully it sent a message? Nick Paul sent back down. (Sorry, was that news? ). Joe Thornton looked assertive today, back from injury as well. Lias Andersson did not start the year in the bigs. Now he's playing top 4 minutes. Hopefully Borgstrom & Tyler Benson soon. They're both above a point a game in the AHL. Borgstrom the AHL rookie of the month. Rasmus Asplund having some struggles though. Our D took a body blow moving Faulk. Honka is coming along though in the NHL. Nicholas Hague, Frederick Allard & Lucas Carlsson are all playing very well in the minors. Allard especially! Filip Berglund continuing to impress in Europe, and Jesper Lindgren looking surprisingly resurgent as a Swede in, Finland? Dahlin (again, is that news) playing well in the NHL as well. Our D is coming a long. Its kust taking time. We'll soon have better days!

    Just putting it out there? What would you do, start Bachman? Give D zone draws to Gaunce & Gaudette with Sutter & Beagle out? Pettersson?? I think Bo might be tired, at the end of long road trip tagging the matchups. But he's a big boy. This is his 5th year. It is exactly time to put a load on him. Where it would have been better had it been possible we could have sheltered him his second year. Oh wait, call up McEwen? Nap, Bo has 17 points in 20 games. His team solidly in playoff position, 4th in the West while they shelter younger guys on his back. Goldobin? Leipsic played 19 minutes. Jake 17. He also had power play time. There was a switch up in minutes allocated. You missed it. Be a fan and enjoy the game.

    I'd like to take a moment to thank you 3 guys. Each found a good way to take the positive about our situation in the thread. Gameday threads like, even after a loss, are encouraging. I love Jakes productions, thanks Always a Canuck fan. It did not strike me, how well we had done considering twice as many road games as home. And the injuries which I did know about it. I might be wrong? I thought you were hard on the team in years past WHL Rocks? I was pumped when I read your post. I'm proud of what we accomplished so far as well!
  6. Jumbo Joe

    If there was a guy in the last 20 years who was a better playmaker than Hank Sedin??? LOL, they put more than one guy on Joe's line. Bumped up their valiue. And traded em for guys like Brent Burns. Unbelievable. Hank, in his 2 or 3 most dominant years was the best playmaker in the game. Joe still the most dominant playmaker of the last 20 years. And yeah, 0.95 PPG over 20 years = first ballot, no brainer.
  7. Derrick Pouliot | #5 | D

    I imagine the conversation is the same over in the Goldobin thread? These young guys are playing well enough to earn a chance. Add speed, some skill to our line up. And CDC is mocking what their opinion of a top line forward, top pair D is against how these guys are doing. Disappointing! When in fact these guys, not perfect and all, are helping our team. And our team is doing better than expected. Without these guys getting any respect due, credit, or even appreciation. Disappointing.
  8. Its gunna be a good game, I'm excited!
  9. Uh oh! I started sometin…

  13. Antoine Roussel’s Journey to the NHL - VIDEO

    Thanks for sharing the video! Pretty easy to like Roussel? I think so...

    So? Some quiet signs of life in Edmonton; Robbi Fabbri has breathed some fresh air into our forward group! Rasmus Dahlin, not big news. 20 points so far this week. Starting to show signs of doing, as a local scribe (? ) coined Rasmus Dahlin things. We're very excited with agent @Mike Vanderhoek, We love backup goalie Alex Giorgiev. His 32 points is already ahead of our backup productivity all last year. Thanks Mike! Patrick Marleau has offered us welcome leadership. Thanks again Mike!!! We would love if Mike was Joe Thorntons doctor... (Not Marian Hossa's, different inference. Rub somma that lub!) Oskar Klefbom is back to 25 minutes a night. Back to productivity. Derrick Pouliot continues a nice surprise? And Julius Honka is starting to play Top 4 minutes. Lias Andersson has joined the big club in the NHL! Henrik Borgstrom is due soon... Anyways, its not shaping up as a great year. But we're going to make the best of it, darn it! CS & the Oilers!
