  1. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

    Great effort tonight playing the 2nd of back to back games. The Brock Bomber is showing everyone that his success is no fluke and Nilsson has just been lights out more often than not. Can't say enough about the play of Sutter, Vanek, Eriksson and Gaunce as they try to get off the CDC whipping boys list. I do think Green and staff need to get over the euphoria of these 2 games though and take a real critical view of what the Canucks are doing well and what still needs improvement. I hope his list includes: 1. It is imperative that they get better effort from their wingers getting pucks out of their own zone. Too often d-men are ringing the puck around the boards to no one or the winger is unable to chip the puck out. Gaunce is by far the best at getting the puck out. 2. Gap control between the forwards and d-men has to be better. 3. We give up our own blue line way too easily. Have to make it more difficult for opposition to gain entry. Better gap control should help with this. 4. Have to be better on the PK. I don't like having just one forward out top covering the point while the other forward just takes away the high slot. Really like the dogged determination of the whole team though.....there is no quit in this team.

  3. Gustav Forsling is outscoring our D

    So true. Sbisa is outscoring Forsling so I guess that means he would be a number 1 d-man on the Canucks. Surprised that San Jose haven't tried to dump that bum Burns onto Vegas for Sbisa, after all Sbisa is outscoring Burns. What a pointless thread.
  4. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Philadelphia Flyers

    So nice to see the Oilers lose tonight and their fans go into panic mode. This is from their message board and thought I should share.

    Geez, don't let Apricot see this.
  6. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Philadelphia Flyers

    I'm a really old fart so I'm not sure my memory is too good but I think Pavel got hurt relatively early in the season, missed a few games and then still wasn't quite right when he came back. Or was that that Don Cherry when was a Canuck? I dunno, I can't remember.........
  7. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Philadelphia Flyers

    Don't know.....but he was on the ice.
  8. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Philadelphia Flyers

    Apricot texted Green making the request to bench him......at least that's what I heard.
  9. Dorsett returned to Vancouver with neck/back stiffness

    Unfortunately this team did need that and Derek knew they did. Despite his surgery he still had the courage to stand up for his teammates and we all should recognize him for the warrior he is. Get well soon Derek.
  10. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    I think there is a very good chance we see Gaudette play a few games with the Canucks this season. Not a bad consolation prize either.
  11. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    I am sure that SID can answer this better than I can but I will give it a try. Pettersson;s last home game for the season is going to be March 10th and then they will have their playoffs. Given the strong performance from the Vaxjo team they may be in the playoffs for some time. The Canucks regular season ends in early April so I doubt there would be much time available for Pettersson to get over here at the end of the year.....unfortunately.
  12. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    RNH is 21 lbs heavier now. If Pettersson can add the weight RNH has then he will be fine to play centre. If not, we will still have an elite winger. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Position: C • Shoots: Left 6-0, 191lb (183cm, 86kg) Team: Edmonton Oilers
  13. (Proposal) VAN - LAK

    Jokinen's no trade list is only 3 teams and we would be very lucky if Vancouver was one of the three. He may be the only forward in the league that Henrik can out skate.
  14. (Proposal) VAN - LAK

    Do you really think the best we can get for Gudbranson, Goldobin and a 3rd is a low end 1st round pick? A big no on this one for me.
