  1. Thank you Henrik and Daniel (Discussion)

    Sedin's were great, but gotta be honest, looking forward to a new Canucks look for the future.
  2. Brock Boeser | #6 | Right Wing

    After seeing the earlier replies of wanting guys like Konecny, Roy, Juulsen, Kylington and Merkley ahead of Boeser makes me sure glad that Benning is our GM.
  3. Brock Boeser | #6 | Right Wing

    Boeser makes the Canucks exciting again. Goes to show you don't need vets to win. HATTY!
  4. The curious case of Brock Boeser

    I hate that Eriksson's making 6m. Only reason he plays over Brock.
  5. Why do you watch?

    The season opener versus Edmonton was exciting. It was a new Canucks team, with new some new faces, and a new season, but I just couldn't help but feel bored after watching them today. Watching the Burrow's tribute reminded me that we've been watching the same Canucks for over 11 years. Now, I know that we've seen new players come and go, but the identity of the team remains the same for the past century, simply because it's the 'Sedin era.' I don't know about you, but I don't get excited when I'm watching 80% of this Canucks team. I love when Horvat or Baertschi get the puck on their stick, and I get excited when I see Virtanen finally get some ice time, but other then that, I just feel that while I'm watching I'm just waiting for the young guys to get back on. I know for his job's sake that Benning needs to ice a team that will have a 'winning environment.' But right now, there's only Virtanen who gets to participate for 8 minutes in that winning environment. I don't believe that adding veterans gives a team a 'winning environment.' This offseason I got ecstatic about the idea that I could watch a full season of Boeser, or that maybe we could see how Juolevi does for a few games at the start of the season, or perhaps some of the goals that Goldobin will score. But right now, we're not seeing any of that. We're seeing new faces in veterans, and I don't know about you, but I get more excited watching Virtanen get a shot than I do watching Vanek get a goal. So my question for you is why do you watch the Canucks? Do you watch them to see them win? In this case, you don't care who they ice as long as the get the W. Put old guys out there, prospects, heck 12 year olds, do whatever you have to do to get the win. It's not so much about the incorporation of youth into the lineup as it is about Canucks heading to the dressing room with 2 points. Do you watch to get glimpses of the future? In this case, you don't care so much about the win as much as you do watching the young kids play (even though getting a win is nice, it's not the priority). Yes, you're still going to be watching the Sedin's pass the puck around, but you're fine with that because now they have a fresh new baby face to dish the puck to. It's about watching the kids who are 'our future' getting their chances to make a name for themselves. You wanna see Goldobin, Virtanen, Horvat, Juolevi, and Boeser out there, hopefully racking up a point or 2 in a game. This case let's us get excited about the future and the new identity that will become of the team once the Sedin's leave. Do you watch for entertainment? In this case, it's not so much about the infusion of the prospects, or about the winning, it's just simply that you'll be entertained. You don't care who's out there as long as there is a beauty of a goal, maybe a fight or 2, a sprawling save, and a highlight hit. You watch the game for one reason: to be entertained, and that's all you care about. Obviously, it's easiest to say it's a combination of the 3. But that's too easy, tell me the primary reason.
  6. [PGT] Ottawa Senators vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Man the Canucks are average to watch, not much to get excited about when mainly watching old vet's play.
  7. All time Canucks lines

    I wish EA Sports made teams like these for their games, somewhat like NBA 2K did. How sick would it be to have all the best Canucks in 1 team? Naslund - Linden - Bure Daniel - Henrik - Smyl Bertuzzi - Gradin - Mogilny Tanti - Ronning - Kesler Ohlund - Jovanovski Lumme - Kearns Snepsts- Salo Luongo Maclean
  8. (Proposal)Van - NYR

    Probably won't be able to get a 1st with his contract and the Ranger's salary cap. I'd still take a 2nd tho
  9. [Article]'s Fantasy take on Canucks

    Give Boeser plenty of playing time and allow him to make mistakes. Get Goldobin into the top 6 as well, this is his time to prove himself, not sit in the doghouse after a mistake. Eriksson should be a 3rd or 4th liner not Goldy. Sedin - Sedin - Boeser Baertschi - Horvat - Goldobin Granlund - Gagner - Sutter Eriksson - Burmistrov - Dorsett
  10. Michael DiPietro | G

    With a name like DiPietro, you can't go wrong!
  11. Kole Lind | RW

    Kelowna mainly produces D-men, but has produced some incredible forwards too (Benn). Looked to be rated as a late 1st rounder. Solid pick. Our RW prospects are looking good.
  12. [Report] Oilers in the mix for Foo

    Richard Park. Come on man.
  13. Canuck Protection Strategy?

    Ruining reputation and a putting a bitter taste in guys who have been here their whole career to save a guy like Sbisa? Sounds wise.
  14. Will Tryamkin Return To The Canucks?

    It's possible he returns, with what's happening in the KHL and other big guys making the leap, I could see him following suit. He says the KHL is just as good, but I think he'll be in for a surprise this year and he could become disappointed by it. To say his shot is comparable to Chara's is insane, Chara had the hardest shot in the NHL for a long time. You're trying to stretch it too much. He's was good, but not an all-star.
  15. [Discussion] First, Figure Out A Plan.

    I don't get everyone's love for the Oilers rebuild. They were brutal for so long and got a generational talent. That's not a rebuild. That's wasting 3 first overall picks, and then finally landing one that worked. You saw how good of a team they really are when McDavid went down last year. Canucks are 2 years into the rebuild, if we wanna rebuild like the Oilers, then we're still 10 years away from making the playoffs, which I don't think we are. The Oiler's curse was that they went BPA with their first overall picks and it killed them on the defense and in net. Both our defense and our goaltending situation is looking okay. Sure, we may not have a generational talent, but right now all of the hole's in our system are getting filled, where we just need a piece or 2, and then we need the guys to gel together. Potential 1st line sniper - Boeser Potential top 6 wingers - Virtanen, Dahlen, Goldobin, Baertschi Potential top 6 Centerman - Horvat, (perhaps draft prospect from this draft) Potential top Defenseman - Juolevi Potential top Goalie - Demko We need another defender and either a 1 or 2 C (depending how Bo continues to grow). Remember how the Oilers had so many talented forward, mediocre defensemen, terribly goaltending, and they didn't use any of their forward assets to improve their D (it took them 11 years to finally do it). The last thing I want to do is be like the Oilers rebuild, and I think we're doing it right.
