  1. [GDT] Canucks @ Maple Leafs -Sat, Jan 6 @ 4PM - CBC

    Man I can't stand listening to Craig Simpson. Just horrible.
  2. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Fair enough but he still won two cups in his first two years. MAF only won one cup in all the years he was there. I have no real love for Matt Murray but he still delivered on the biggest stage in his first two years.
  3. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens vs. Vancouver Canucks

    You clearly didn't read my earlier posts. Someone questioned when the Canucks would ever have a #1 and I replied Demko in two years. Matt Murray is simply an example of a guy who stepped into the league in a good situation and had a tonne of success. In two years, when more and more Benning draft picks have joined the team, Demko should be primed to make the jump. If he is ready he is ready, either one of the current goaltenders could act as a solid veteran mentor. I also made the argument that the two current goaltenders were in the top half of the league for save % and GAA until the injuries hit. Their current results a result of bad performance but also a reflection of the defensive make up of the current team. You literally just made all the points I was arguing so... Main point is people are overreacting as always but the team is fun to watch but it is a total wildcard year and the real games start in two years when guys like Boeser have a couple years under their belt and guys like Pettersson and Demko are joining the NHL squad.

    Agreed, if they keep drafting like they have they should be able to fill holes or trade pieces to acquire high end players.
  5. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens vs. Vancouver Canucks

    My comment was about Demko being #1 in two years (multiple earlier comments). Person I was responding to wrote that we would need someone to mentor him at that point. Given his success at every level, I think either of the current goalies (combined with the goalie coaches) would support Demko being a great #1 in two years.
  6. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Uhhh he didn't play behind Fleury (i.e. he did not get mentored by Fleury)...he got called up and took over the starting job immediately. His success had nothing to do with Fleury. He played maybe 13 regular season games three seasons ago before playing the entire playoffs when they won the first of two Stanley Cups.
  7. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Before this losing streak three weeks ago...the tandem was in the top half of the league with respect to save % and GAA. As soon as the injuries kicked in and the team started to struggle, so did the goalies. The team is now playing poorly in front of them so I don't view the last three weeks as evidence of what the two goalies are capable of if they had a sound defensive team in front of them.
  8. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Three weeks ago everyone was talking about how good the goalie tandem was...there are ups and downs in a season. Both goalies will be fine...are they #1s no but they can hold the fort until Demko is 100% ready
  9. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens vs. Vancouver Canucks

    If he is ready, I agree but I don't think it is required. The team now has the flexibility to bring Demko up when ready.
  10. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Did Matt Murray have a mentor? If you are ready, you are ready. He has shown the ability to dominate at every level and, statistically speaking, two years from now he will be at the perfect age to hit his prime NHL years.
  11. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Demko in two years - when the team looks like this (defence still needs some work but should be interesting especially with two more drafts in between then and now): Goldy Bo Boeser Dahlen Pettersson Lind Jake Gaunce Granlund Gadjovich Gaudette xxx Juolevi Tanev 2018 1st Stetcher Hutton Pouliot Demko
  12. [PGT] Montreal Canadiens vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Fun hockey, was always going to be a bit of a wildcard year so can't really complain about the effort and/or entertainment value. Hopefully they can string a couple wins together and at least stay above water until Bo, etc. come back.
  13. Jim Benning's Drafting

    Totally agree, Jake is not necessarily an offensive genius but he has a unique skill set that not many players have. If guys like Boeser, Pettersson, etc pan out offensively, a Nylander type would be redundant (and too expensive for what he actually provides i.e. his overall game). The other thing people forget about is that offensive guys join the league and play the same way they have always played, Virtanen has had to essentially re-learn how to play b/c he can't simply bowl guys over anymore. In two years he is going to be a force.
  14. [Trade] Canucks trade Jordan Subban to Kings for Nic Dowd

    Curious to hear from the people who are upset about losing Subban on how many games they have actually seen him play. He has the odd highlight but when watching an actual game Subban has always seemed like a liability to me. He was getting danced by forwards at the prospect tourney and even more so in the pre-season games I watched. I just don't see the progression or any reason to believe he will be a decent NHLer. Just me
  15. [PGT] Carolina Hurricanes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    For sure, now that he has been in place long enough for his draft picks to start impacting the line-up, the organizational flexibility is going to be huge. The depth being built at every level is impressive. People always complain about some of his early trades but it was needed given the lack of depth at every level when he took over. Now that the organization has depth, he can continue to make trades like the Pouliot trade.
