  1. I completely understand how it works, and it is so frustrating. I get why they dont want teams to "tank" and it makes sense, howvever it anoys me that it was the worst team for a decade FINALLY figured it out after years of incompetence in management caused them to change it. AFTER they got good, and now we suck after 17 years of good hockey. I feel bad for the avs AND arizona. If not Arizona more so cause they should be 6th but the way it works they get 7th! I get it all, i didnt expect much it is a lotto after all but damn..... i wish we were lucky. i hope jimbo kills the draft!
  2. "Make a [expletive] save Eddie!"

    ahahah yeah, cause most of them had no idea what they were talking about.
  3. "Make a [expletive] save Eddie!"

    One of the reasons i was happy when he got traded. Never had confidence in him and never saw a good goalie. Hope for the best for him, but can't say i'm surprised he's doing as poor as he is. (Although im sure being on Carolina doesn't help). People who cried when he got traded clearly just followed his twitter and not the games.
  4. Going to be weird seeing him place elsewhere! Going to miss him. However, i am excited to see what we got for him!
  5. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    He is following Green's formula of learning the fundamentals of pro hockey, stats will look poor this year because of that. To even have the idea of a bust in the conversation at the age of 20 is astounding. Let us wait till training camp to see how he has improved from the previous year. Do not look at stats until year 2 in the AHL. Green will give him more rope like he did with Gaunce and Shinkaruk. Trust in the system and be patient. The bust conversation can be brought forward in a few years. 1.5 years of pro hockey under ones belt and already have people calling him a bust is incredibly bothersome and shows how little some people in this fan base know about hockey. (Not directing that at you, however i am sure you understand what i mean)
  6. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    I, personally, don't see much difference between Jake's first year in the A, as compared to Gaunce and Shinkaruks. Their first year they didn't too much, because they were playing low in the lineup to learn the pro game, and then slowly progressed over the next year. I would have preferred Jake start in the A this year, however it didn't happen. I understand he had a full year of pro with the team his first year, however i believe a full year in the AHL is much better for development than the NHL because in the NHL a coach has to put in the best lineup every night, and focus on their opponents and gameplans, where as a coach in the AHL (given the fact Utica is Aquillini owned) has more room to teach fundamentals of the pro game which many coaches don't have time to do in the NHL. I don't get why some people can't see that. It took Baer 5 years as a pro to figure it out? Things take time, every player is different. People talk about Jake's development game-by-game as if one game is going to prove hes NHL ready (HE SCORED HES READY, next game he screws up and HES A BUST). Take it month-to-month if you have to, but it should be year-to-year. This isnt NHL17 guys. Have some go damn patience, holy $&!#. There is a reason you arn't an NHL scout or GM. Trust the system. Players fail all the time, which it appears people don't understand. Drafting is an incorrect science. I don't know if this is all from newer Canucks fans, but i feel like if you have followed hockey for 10+ years you should know how development works. and hey maybe you just never liked the Jake pick and thats all well and good, however screaming bloody murder he isnt in the NHL at 20 just shows you have no idea what youre talking about. Anyway i'm done rambling, not like i will change any minds anyway. Just my take. STOP looking for game-by-game development thats not how it works.
  7. [Trade] PK Subban to Predators for Shea Weber

    Now THAT is a trade WOW
  8. [Trade] F Taylor Hall to Devils for D Adam Larsson

    Was there honestly not a better deal out East for him? If thats what Hall gets then Burrows or Higgy would have got us a bag of pucks wow. I always get worried when you take Dmen/Goalies from teams that are structured like NJ and ARI. Defense first etc. Dont think Larsson is bad by any means, however having Schneider definitely helped im sure.

  12. Good trade for Nashville, wow. We defs didnt have anything we could give up for Ryan, unfortunately. dayum!
  13. [Waivers] Corrado and Vey on Waivers

    ahaha well said!
  14. [Trade] Zack Kassian to Canadiens

    I love how we still in every single trade overrate our players this comes from the website where Raymond, Ballard at a 1st could get us Ovi. Give your &^@#ing head a shake people. I loved kass and had high hopes from him but he was so inconsistant. Everyone cries that they want a culture change, but complain when it happens. THIS IS IT! for good or bad. the issue with our franchise is we hold on to players to long cause we're scared of change. Embrace it and grow up. Or go cheer for another team. WOW.
