  1. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    Fans want players to get suspended now for throwing another player to the ice? What is this, pee-wee hockey? This kind of stuff happenes all the time around the league.
  2. HHOF soon to call on 4 more former Canucks

    Judging by your logic, then Jere Lehtinen should be in the Hall. Jere won the Selke THREE times, as a WINGER. How often do you see that, nowadays?
  3. I wonder what Scott Foster is up to these days?
  4. Tomorrow's headline: Juolevi request a trade, after finding out team's new policy.
  5. Win or lose; I'd be satisfied if we can get two goals at even strength.
  6. It's most likely that it will be Eric Wedge replacing Gibby, but I'm hoping they can pry Sandy Alomar Jr. out of Cleveland to manage the team next year. I don't think he's gotten a fair shot of managing a team and from what I've heard, people say he a pretty intelligent baseball mind.

    I don't see his talents being wasted at all. Do you think the Flyers brass thought it was a waste of Patrick's talent to start him off on the 4th line last year? What about Couturier a few years ago? Seguin in Boston? Kempe in LA? Even our very own Horvat started out on the fourth line.
  8. How to improve the canucks defense

    I would say 80% of our defensive gaffes consist of our guys chasing their man, leaving a wide open passing lane or our forwards not giving enough support along the boards. I've seen countless times, when one of our defensemen is being pressured, they tend to chips it along the boards, but there's no one there to receive it. Which in turn, either gets turned-over or the player along the boards has to skate back and get it.
  9. How many points does Pettersson get this year?

    Somewhere between 1-100. All on the man advantage.
  10. He's pretty much become CDC's whipping boy now. People like to crap on him, because he makes one or two errors a game, but when players like Pettersson or Boeser makes the same errors they ignore it.
  11. No one looks particularly great tonight, "just average".

    Indirectly, he did. In my original post I stated, It wouldn't hurt Pettersson if he started in the minors, if the coaching staff deems he needs some more games to adjust to the NA style/ice (you know the men who actually make the final decisions. Not you, me, or any other fan). Then he responds by saying, "if we would have drafted McDavid, I would probably be singing a similar tune." I wouldn't, because McDavid an one in a million talent, whereas; despite breaking SHL records. Pettersson is not considered a generational talent, like a McDavid or Matthews. I dont see why it such a big ordeal if they do send him down for a short stint. We've see guys like Spezza, Staal, Perry, Getzlaf, Giroux, etc all start their pro careers in the minors and later on have successful careers. Even Green said in the presser, if the rookies show they belong, they will be on the roster. If not, then they would start in the minors, until they are ready. That rookie group should include Pettersson. I'm not knocking on Pettersson, in matter of fact, I was probably one of the few who was high on him in the draft (if you don't believe me, you can filter through the 2017 draft thread). I just don't see why it's such a big deal, if he starts in the minors. I guess people are just too eager to see the "shiny toy" in the big league. That being said, I do think he makes the big club out of camp, with lack of offensive power on this team.

    Never knew Pettersson was in the same tier group as generational talents like McDavid and Matthews.
  14. [Official] 2018 Training Camp Thread

    Training camp and pre-season games determine if he's ready for the NHL, not past accolades. It isn't out of the realm that Pettersson has a camp that isn't up to par with the coaching staffs, maybe his conditioning isn't up to their standard or he hasn't quite adjusted to the NA ice. Starting him in Utica for a bit shouldn't be totally out of the question.
  15. [PTO] Gilbert Brule with Flames

    I remember Nonis was pushing hard to acquire a top 3 pick at the draft, so he could draft Brulé.
