  1. It'd be less of a big deal of Myers was getting penalties for being physical, or making a defensive play.
  2. Yeah I'm just bugging you dude. Virtanen might get his shot in game 2.
  3. Hey guys. I'm just poking fun, but these didn't age well. @DeNiro @Rob_Zepp @N7Nucks @Ossi Vaananen
  4. Watching the 2011 playoffs. Daaaaamn that team was good. Anyway, watching Ballard play. I think he's playing his role ok, and he's physical. Only later, when Kesler, Erhoff and Edler were messed up. Rome suspended, Maholtra and Hamhuis out, that guys like Ballard were asked too much defensively. Update: wow I thought everyone was gonna disagree. I guess it was mostly just AV that hated him.
  5. Yeah if you look at their drafting, the first half is size the next half is skill. The strategy changed when Brackett got more of a say. You don't have to believe it, but it's been reported.
  6. Speed and skill was targeted when Bracket was promoted. Again, according to reports.
  7. On one hand I'm worried long term, because according to people that know a lot more than I do... Benning has a love of meat n potato guys and Bracket was the guy targeting skill. On the other hand the Canucks are trading their high picks away anyways so who cares?
  8. I'd be more upset but what's the point of a scouting staff when you don't have draft picks.
  9. At this point this is only sort of Canucks and only sort of hockey related. But hey, it's covid19 out there. There's no sports so for those not aware let me entertain you with some twitter drama. A drama that I have gotten dragged into and have been fighting with Boston fans over every since. It started with a most unholy of gatherings. A Boston Bruins zoom party to watch game 7 of the 2011 finals. As you can see by the tweet, at one point they mention Kesler trash talking in the game. Someone jokes that Lucic should watch what he says or it'll be all over twitter and Lucic says... "Buddy he's not even in the league right now, **** him." If you know anything about Kesler... he didn't like the comment. He decided to retweet some serious trashtalk by some random twitter person, alongside a gif of Hulk Hogan dropping the mic. The truth hurts, and Lucic had to respond to save his online honor. He came back with a predictable but savage burn, the only burn he'll ever need in his playbook towards the Canucks. As you can see he went to his DVR to find this clip, this attack took time and effort. The twitter war ended with a weak burn by Kesler, though he got in the all important last word and scored a moral victory. With that, things seem to have come to an uneasy truce.... for now.
  10. So he's done a fantastic job, but also had to grow into being a GM. Canucks were competitive, but also the worst team in the league over 3 year period. His draft picks are underrated, but he's a great scout and built though the draft. You had 3 arguments with yourself in one paragraph. I'm impressed.
  11. Of course you prefer to have a tough team, but the 2011 Canucks were never going to win because of toughness. Of course I'm generalizing but I find people that don't fight or play contact sports, they're the ones that are fastest to criticize a "soft" team or player.
  12. Probably the most behind the scenes article you will ever see. Interesting but painful to read. I got into a twitter war with Boston fans because of this.
