  1. Players worth DELETING for picks.

    Have you even seen Granlund play?
  2. [PGT] St. Louis Blues vs. Vancouver Canucks

    As far as I'm concerned, this one ended 4-3 Van in Regulation
  3. Tillman wants the NHL in Houston

    Can the Flames owners' please get over themselves. The city offered $150 million plus the land for the new arena, that's generous. The Calgary relocation stuff is silly. Edit: the city offered to pay: One third of direct constructions costs Costs of demolition and remediation of the SaddleDome site Extend infrastructure (light rail, road, etc) to properly service the new site) Provide the land (currently city owned) at no cost) Yet the owners think this is unfar because they'd have to pay property tax on the new arena. You know, like every other business does.
  4. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Los Angeles Kings

    Raining Blood is the song, Reign in Blood is the album
  5. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Los Angeles Kings

    Welcome! I'd agree, Eriksson has been good the last two games. I hope he gets rewarded on the stat sheet soon.
  6. Vanek, Gudbranson in TSN's top 10 Trade Bait List

    I hate to see Guddy go, but he probably has a lot of trade value to a contending team that needs to round out their middle pair with some toughness. I'd like to see him re-signed, but if his asking price is too high or he wants to test the market next summer, we could probably get a good haul for him. As for Vanek, he's servicable and I think he's had a few strong games so far this season. I don't see him in any long-term plans for the team though, flip him for whatever you can get at the deadline.
  7. Kole Lind | RW

    THW (Pike’s Picks): 21st (final) Future Considerations: 38th (final) ISS: 24th (May) Bob McKenzie: 33rd (Mid-season) Craig Button: 54th (final) The Hockey News: 27th (final) You're right, he didn't fall very far in the rankings. I think management thought he would go in the 20s and were surprised to see him available at 33. I'm guessing our scouts had him around ISS's number.
  8. Brock Boeser | #6 | Right Wing

    9th in points per game, pretty impressive.
  9. Kole Lind | RW

    It's pretty good, about 8000 capacity and not a bad seat in the house. Food/drink is pretty average though.
  10. Jordan Subban | D

    I was thinking the same as your first sentence. I believe him when he says he has been studying tape, watching other smallish offensive guys, and working hard. I don't doubt his work ethic or attitude, I just don't think he has the natural defensive insticts to succeed as an NHLer. Likeable kid, and worth the risk of a 4th round pick, but I don't think it'll work out.
  11. [PGT] Washington Capitals vs. Vancouver Canucks

    I'm seriously impressed with the team tonight.
  12. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Boston Bruins

    2 SoG, 2 hits, 2 blocked shots, even +/-, 22 minutes TOI.
  13. Canucks starting goalie- Nilsson VS Markstrom?!

    Is it really a goaly controversy if we went into the season knowing we had two 1b guys and they would be competing for starts?
  14. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Ottawa Senators

    I missed the first period. The shot differential is pretty ugly, but how did it look?
  15. Ticket prices right now aren't to bad to me (50ish for upper bowl). But I live in Victoria, I would go to a lot more games if I didn't have the added expense of the ferry, hotel/airbnb, a couple resteraunt meals. Other than the occaisional early Sunday game, the games end too late to catch the ferry back the same night.
