  1. Thought he might have had the chance to make the team when he played for us in preseason back in 2011. Gained my respect when he fought big Douglas Murray. AV seemed to like him as well, happy to have him back. ... looking pretty clogged up front though
  2. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    Different scenarios but Jake this season kind of reminds me of Kassian in the season Torts was here. Started the season off ok, then disappeared for a bit, slowly gained confidence, and ended off the season playing the way we all wanted to see him play. Kass got 29 points (career high still) that year with a big chunk of those points (over 75 percent iirc) coming from the last 30 games of the season. Hopefully we see the same, if not better from Jake.
  3. Jonathan Dahlén | C/LW

    Woah havent seen Friesen's name in a while. Seeing him play I always thought he would have developed into a solid bottom 6 guy for us. Never really worked out though.
  4. [Signing] Dwight King signs in KHL

    Not saying he was a great fighter, but he was one of those guys who could handle himself pretty well due to size and strength.
  5. [Signing] Dwight King signs in KHL

    There's not much competition for him right now honestly. A few years ago that would be different but after Reaves there's not too many much better than Stewart. Sure there's Lucic, McQuaid, Prout, etc. but one could argue that they are in the same tier. Not to mention in his last 8 years in the NHL (according to dropyourgloves) he has only lost 3 fights.
  6. [Signing] Dwight King signs in KHL

    He was a pretty underrated fighter. Held his own at a young age against Mcgrattan, did pretty good against Ivanans after a hard hit on Henrik I believe, and destroyed Chris Stewart who is one of the top fighters in the nhl right now. He did get clocked by Engelland a few years ago and I giess thats what people remembered him for
  7. Jonathan Dahlén | C/LW

    At least if they go here the kids are guaranteed a ton of playing minutes.
  8. Just a few years ago oilers fans hated Kassian for what he did to Gagner.... now they love him and Gagner is with the Canucks.... so much can change
  9. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    For someone his weight, he seems pretty strong on his skates which is a good thing to see because he is only gonna get stronger
  10. To think we could have had both of these guys on our team at one point.. oh well hindsights 20/20
  11. Weird seeing Burr in a different jersey but I'm happy he did well in his first game with them!
  12. [PGT] Sharks @ Canucks

    Missed the game, how was McEneny?
  13. [Signing] Flames sign Matt Bartkowski

    Best neutral zone player in the league... can't say the same about the other two zones
  14. Team toughness, the way forward

    That is true now that you mention it. Even the years we had Mitchell, Hordi, Glass, Rypien, Bieksa, O'Brien, Brown there were times they would stick up but not really as a pack. The closest I've seen it was the year under Torts when we had Sestito, Kassian, Stanton, Bieksa. Good times. It even carried over early on to the next season for a bit(only two games, one vs Edmonton and one against Phoenix where Sestito tried to fight Hanzal who injured three players the previous year) with Dorsett added in as well... That is before Sestito was waived and Kassian was given the WD treatment.
  15. Ritchie is beasting it out there this game.
