  1. [PGT] Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Well it was a fun game to watch, helped a lot by that great 1st period and the lead the Canucks got. Outplayed for at least the next 25 minutes, though, and had to rely on Markstrom to bar the door again. Virtanen continues to tease us with his speed, but he has yet to show me he's put it all together yet. Goldobin looked weak and ineffective. Good team game overall, though. Loui Eriksson has played quite well recently, I hope that continues. Even Sam Gagner, who has looked tepid most of the season, seems to be getting his hockey sense back. The Leafs got pretty dirty in the second period and didn't get called for any of it.

    I might have to see about joining this hockey pool next year!
  3. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. New York Rangers

    It was a fun game to watch. Nice to see Gagner get a goal- a timely one at that (even though eventually it was nullified). There was a moment in the first period when Jake Virtanen had a long look at Henrik Lunqvist, and he played a great game, so it was awesome to see him score a goal. The Sedins inch closer to their 1000 career points. The Rangers were super sleepy in the 1st period. The Canucks were sharp, and deserved to get more than one goal. The overtime was intense, and the shootout was fun, and I thought a lot of Canucks looked pretty good for once (they have looked pretty inept in shootouts the last couple of years in my opinion). Lunqvist, even though he let in 3, was the better goalie in the end.
  4. I've watched the last two Canucks games on the app on my phone. It's pretty sweet. And a way my wife can get me out of the house on a Canucks night. 

    One thing though is that I can't look at Twitter during the game, which all in all in probably a good thing. 

  5. I can't get this mad after a bad call goes against the Canucks. Even though I'd be willing to bet money if that goal was scored by another team it would have counted. 

    I can't get this mad after a bad call goes against the Canucks because it's just too damn exhausting.

      Relax. It's a game. Ultimately completely meaningless in life.

      Incompetence in a top level position in unacceptable.  Sure, human error is part of it, but when you change the face of a game or don't even appear to know the rules?  Ridiculous.   With that, I don't dwell on it, I expect it.  Which, in itself, is sad.

  6. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Los Angeles Kings

    Another poor start by the Canucks which they actually managed to dig themselves out of. And why? The Sedins. I critiqued their play last game, but they certainly showed up tonight, and nothing would delight me more than to see them finish the season strong. Because no one wants to see great players limp out the rest of their career. Please, please Daniel & Henrik, finish strong! Horvat's line played well, as did Thomas Vanek. Speaking of Vanek it continues to astound me how little ice time Coach Green seems to give this guy, and yet he's still one of the best players out there. I thought Brandon Sutter had a good game, almost scoring on that chance, even if his penalty shot was nothing to write home about. Nilsson bounced back after that early softie, and he had two very tough tests in the last 5 minutes of the game to preserve the tie. The D played well too. They didn't allow a whole lot of quality chances against, and were passing the puck up to the forwards effectively. And although there were a couple soft plays getting the pucks out of the d-zone I think that was mostly forwards with the soft plays. Great team effort to not let themselves get rattled and come back from being down 2-0. But personally I can't feel too high about this victory, because of the third poor start in a row, and the two previous efforts. Prove me wrong boys!
  7. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks

    It's easy to like a defenseman who stopped two sure goals from going in, yes.
  8. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks

    This one lived up to what happened less than a minute in. The Canucks were horrid in the 1st period, with only Markstrom keeping them in. They were better in the 2nd & 3rd, but toothless. All their offense seems to have evaporated. Sure they got shots on goal, but pathetically few scoring chances. After the poor start they had in Anaheim I really thought they'd start off better here, but no dice. I think there's a lot of finger-pointing going on as to which Canucks are to blame for the current problems. I think the warts were there, even when we were winning. There seem to be a small core of players on this team who've kept the team afloat, and when they started to flounder, there was nobody to help. Bo Horvat, Sven Baertschi and Brock Boeser were among those players I believe. But Boeser hasn't been good or noticeable lately, Baertschi ineffective. Only Horvat seems to be doing okay. I've liked Pouliot, Dorsett, Tanev, and Vanek lately, but the rest of the team, Sedins included, just haven't been good enough.
  9. [Signing] Red Wings sign David Booth

    I always liked David Booth, but things just didn't work out in Vancouver. Best of luck in Detroit!
  10. watching the Canucks youngsters vs. the Flames online

  11. Brock Boeser will make the team out of training camp, and I will guess so will Goldobin. Louie Eriksson will have a resurgence and score 20 plus goals. Anton Rodin might not make the team, but will get called up soon and play surprisingly well. The team will start off looking shaky as they adjust to the new coach's game plan. The defense in particular will struggle early on. Brandon Sutter will play well, as will Bo Horvat and Baertschi. Bo's line will become the team's no. 1 line. The Sedins will struggle early and in the middle of the season, but will finish strong.
  12. Philip Larsen Injury [UPDATE]

    If they'd suspend Raffi Torres for this type of hit, they need to suspend Hall. By the same token if Hall's hit was clean, so was Torres'. Case closed. And by far the most important thing is hopefully Larsen will be OK
  13. Michael Carcone | LW/RW

    I was impressed with Michael Carcone, mostly in the game vs. Winnipeg, but also against Calgary. I thought he, Cole Cassels and Troy Stetcher were the best of the Canucks' young stars. But I think Carcone was the best of the three: his poise, skating, and offensive instincts. From what I've read here he's older than some of the others, so perhaps that helps explain it. But he definitely stood out to me. I wonder if he won't get a shot at the regular training camp? I'm not sure how that works.
  14. Fifth overall should still net a pretty good player in a deep draft.

  15. I wonder why they cut the "around the league" forum on this website. Hmm
