  1. Way to go Etem on his 1st as a Canuck! Man, I feel for Bo. -3 on the night and I can't really blame him for any of them.
  2. Glad to see Sutter back in the line-up. Having Vey as our only R face off man is not ideal.
  3. I'd take Hammer back at 3.5 mil, 3 years max. (maybe longer with a lower cap hit, but I don't see him signing anywhere for less than 3.5.) He's lost a step for sure, but he is still a servicable D man. I would rather see him back here, than leave for nothing as a UFA.
  4. Daniel Sedin's 78 game winners put him in a 4-way tie at 28th all time with the likes of Peter Bondra, Marian Hossa, Vincent Damphousse, and Steve Thomas. 1 ahead of Dave Andreychuk and 4 ahead of Mario Lemiux. Closing in on Patrik Elias: 79, Mike Bossy: 82.
  5. I think the DPS will find 5 and a game is enough of a punishment. EDIT: I mean the game misconduct, not a 1 game suspension.
  6. Your buddy in a genius.
  7. From what I can tell, the only times we have iced our best rosters are: Olympics 1998 - present, the Canada Cup 1976-1991 , and the World Cup of Hockey 1996 and 2004. Of those we (Canada) have finished: Olympics; 4th, 1st, 7th, 1st, 1st Canada Cup: 1st, 2nd, 1st, 1st, 1st World Cup: 2nd, 1st So, I get your point. Hockey Canada is dominant on the world stage and has by far the best record in best vs best.
  8. Hodgson had 16 points in 6 games in 2009. And Schroeder holds the American record for most career WJC points.
  9. That was the joke, thanks buds.
  10. And they've still won more games than Anaheim.
  11. I see him normailzing to a .915, maybe .920 save %. In the upper half of starting goaltenders. He, and the defense, (mainly Edler, Tanev, and Hutton) have looked better than I anticipated so far. Some upgrades on the middle are helping too. (Sutter, McCann in and Vey, Bonino out)
  12. McCann's shot release is exceptional. He can get the puck away speed and acuracy from in his feet, or when stretching out away from his body.
  13. 1st in the Pacific, leading in goals and goal differential. Not bad.
