  1. Players worth DELETING for picks.

    608 goal man Dino Ciccarelli would like to remind you that being at the right spot, at the right time, is indeed a skill and one that cannot be taught easy.
  2. Jonathan Dahlén | C/LW

    I hope Dahlen does well, but I haven't seen enough out of him to proclaim that he will make the NHL one day. I'm glad people are already penciling him into our top 6 though haha
  3. Chemistry and Splitting the Sedins

    How can you call yourself a Canucks fan and hate the Sedins this much? They took a big time discount per year at the time. We had them for a steal of a price for four years, and now that they're in the second of their two subpar seasons you're trashing them? You guys are all crazy for being so quick to throw the Sedins under the bus. If we get them for 3 million per season, we easily bring them back next year. I'd rather have them as vets playing here then go after other team's washed up veterans. Lastly: don't think it's a concidence that we have Horvat, Hutton, Stecher, Granlund, Sven, and now Jake, all coming up and improving with the team. It takes good veteran leadership and I'm giving a lot of credit to the Sedins for that in the twilight of their careers.
  4. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks

    Why would that be? He doesn't back down from anyone in the league.
  5. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks

    Definitely! He's really improved as the season has gone on so far.

    Rollie the Goalie! Nice Thanks for the recap of the game!

    Don't forget that guys like Juolevi and Dahlen might prefer to play in the SHL for personal reasons as well as developmental reasons. If you know that a company will hire you sooner or later, would you take an intern job in the middle of butt_*uck nowhere, working for a crappier company then you're working for now? However very excited with Lind, Gadjovich and Gaudette being on the cusp of making the Canucks through Utica!
  8. Vet Fwds In Lineup

    Gagner IS versatile! He coughs up the puck in the neutral zone and the offensive zone! How can you say that the Sedins can't make things happen after the last two games? I know they're struggling because of our expectations of Art Ross winners, but Sedins would at worst be a 3rd line on any team in the league and would more often then not be a 2nd line on other teams. I'm actually finding the Sedins to be having dominant shifts more often as of late. Just because we are used to them cycling the puck as if we're on a power play, doesn't mean that it still shouldn't be appreciated.

    I've read your comment 7 times now without fully grasping the concept... it must be way over my head haha "Typing fingers dancing like garden slugs" is my favourite simile that I've heard since I've moved to the Western World.
  10. Nikita Tryamkin | D

    Sorry to reminisce here... but Tryamkin was the only glimmer of hope on the Canucks when looking at the future for a long time. Thankfully we have Granlund, Boeser, Sven and Bo now to give me hope for the future. I still think that we might have a better, faster version of Hal Gill on our hands here. Just a reminder that Hal Gill was the most influential defenseman on the Penguin teams that won it all or went very deep in the playoffs. He also carried the Canadiens through to the Conference Finals one year. We should do an online flood campaign at some point to let him know that he'll be welcomed with open hands back here after his team gets knocked out haha

    If you're trying to instill a winning attitude, you can't take your better players and sit them down. Say what you will about the Sedins and their gradual decline, but they are still better then pretty much most of our other forwards. No self-respecting coach would do that either.
  12. Nikita Tryamkin | D

    Well Tryamkin's contract in the KHL expires exactly one year before we lose our right to him, meaning that we don't really have to panic about that. In fact, I'd say there's a decent shot of him playing out his 3 year contract in the KHL and then signing with us.
  13. Kole Lind | RW

    That's awesome! What's the Royals' arena like? I've been through your beautiful city many times but never caught a sporting event there.
  14. Adam Gaudette | C

    I want to keep Burmy!
  15. Canucks call up Anton Rodin from Utica

    You want to trade Burmy and Dorsett? Damn that’s cold... it’s not like they are 35 year old vets.
