    I think the universe is pretty cool.
  1. Thatcher Demko | G

    What the hell? Cloutier was an NHL goalie for years with excellent talent. Regardless of whether he played consistently under pressure, he does know what it takes. You don't need to be the best "skill" wise to be an excellent teacher, you just have to know what you are doing. The teaching aspect is another skill in itself. If a goalie has that retort to a coach then he's a sour brat (not saying Demko would). That's a low blow response to advice, rejecting it with a retort about how the coach failed 13 years ago. The corner advice might seem obvious, but that's just the surface level of what it is. What he really is saying is you can't cheat like in college or junior as much, as guys have quicker and more accurate shots (corners). A goalie coach's job is to tell a goalie what they need to do to do better. Any goalie happy with their play is doomed to fail. Demko had an amazing season in college, but that means jack all in the AHL or NHL if a player can't transition their play between leagues. Besides, sometimes the best teachers are the ones who got close at the highest level but failed (often miserably), because they are the ones who know exactly where they went wrong. Winners sometimes are more blind to their flaws.

    Based off these two games, which although is a tiny sample size, I see at least a solid third pairing defender (the kind that although is third pairing, is still a vital role player). I'm not putting a ceiling on him, and he could be more. But if we get a solid 4-6 role defender out of him, we have a solid win.

    This is Bo Sang all over again.
  4. Connor McDavid NHL 17 Cover

    Well Scott did beat Kane in a fight and score two goals in an all star game.
  5. Are Strombo and Linden twins?

    This is possibly the worst thread i have ever seen started on CDC. 1/10 Would not read again.
  6. 4th all-time in NHL scoring

    Living legend. Wish he had worn a Nucks sweater for a least one season.
  7. Anton Rödin | RW/LW

    Yeah, I agree. He seemed to have a lot of potential after we drafted him, but had some unfortunate injuries paired with an AHL club that was not working in tandem with it's NHL club. Now he's an older prospect, so he'll have to work that much harder to get an NHL gig. He is tearing up across the sea, but we have a bunch of young scoring wingers who play the role he plays in Baertschi, Shinkaruk, Vey (to an extent). We also have more physical forwards like Virtanen and Gaunce who are also capable of scoring. For him to make the Canucks, he would have to find a way to get a spot ahead of Shinkaruk and Baertschi. Meanwhile, we have needs on defense. He could be a nice supplementary piece in a trade getting a defensive prospect/ young dman back. But like you, I'm never opposed to a player making the Canucks who deserves a spot.

    I think they also just enjoy trying to prove somebody wrong.

    I like lemons.
  10. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    Awww. After the update now this post has +98 instead of the sub -1000 that it had before. That was the thing of legends. That needs to be rectified. THAT IS DESTRUCTION OF A HERITAGE ARTIFACT!!!

    Damn. This is what happens when I accept an extra shift at work!

    It was close. Went to a tiebreaker.

    I don't really like the site's renos. I hope they fix a lot of stuff up. The previous design was fine as is, but whatever, as long as they fix it.

    []it just got real with that presidential assassination! I'll talk more then

    unvote TL vote Alf Because he essentially gave himself up.
