  1. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    If Hughes or Wahlstrom are on the board at 7 I would take either of them before Boqvist, Tkachuk, Dobson or Bouchard. That's an easy decision.
  2. Pettersson vs Glass in 2017-2018

    Pettersson & Lind or Vilardi & Heponiemi? The latter combo would've been who Canucksarmy would've taken based on their rankings. Tough call.
  3. 2nd Best Dman in 2018 Draft

    Bouchard is too slow.
  4. I hope the team doesn't name a captain next year.
  5. When will we see Some physicality on the team again

    Oh well I stand corrected. I never thought about that...
  6. When will we see Some physicality on the team again

    Why is anyone focusing on the team's physicality? What year is it? Have these people not noticed the rules changes in the NHL in the last decade? How about focusing on the teams skill or speed or goaltending or special teams or systems. Physicality has to be near the bottom of the list. And for those who claim that good teams are physical where is the evidence? Do you have anything to support your claim other than your personal, biased, eye test? Do you have any objective data or analysis that shows that physicality actually results in wins? If so I would love to know about it.
  7. I'm loving Benning's unintentional tanking. Hopefully this year we gets some luck at the lotto.
  8. Benning Extended (Official)

    This extension has to be one of the biggest votes of confidence I've ever seen an ownership have in a GM.

    To be honest, I am surprised. You fundamentally do not understand PDO. I suggest you really take some time to understand it. And by the way, the smaller the sample size in PDO the more its influence by luck (that's why it regresses over larger sample sizes). That's all I got to say. Good chat though.

    Well let's try to figure this out. Gudbranson's career PDO is 98.6 however this year his PDO is 101.6 (which is 3rd highest on the team, 2nd highest on defense). As PDO is more of a proxy for luck than skill, it suggests that Gudbranson, in this respect, is having a "luckier" season. However, and please correct me if I am wrong, your posts seem to indicate that you think he isn't having a lucky season and that his PDO is more skill driven than luck driven?

    That's what I thought- you don't understand PDO.
  12. Erik Gudbranson | #44 | D

    Then can you explain why you used Gudbranson's high PDO this season as a reason to support that he is a good defenseman?
  13. Erik Gudbranson | #44 | D

    OK. Then I guess you don't understand PDO. No need to respond, I understand you more than I wish did.
  14. Erik Gudbranson | #44 | D

    OK you must've made a typo then. I'm just looking out for ya.
  15. Erik Gudbranson | #44 | D

    OK. I don't think you understand PDO.
