  1. [PGT] Nashville Predators vs. Vancouver Canucks

    And??? Doesn't matter if it is because of Christmas, it was a good hit, and it made all the fans in the arena happy. More than the rest of the game did...
  2. Jim Benning's Drafting

    Love your optimism Apollo, so a little surprised about your reservations. I'd say the Sedins turned out alright, and Naslund did ok too. Brock has nearly 2 years on Elias. Who knows, it may take a little longer for Elias, change of scenary, ring size etc etc, but the potential is definitely there to become an all time great. But yes Brock is far better than could be expected. Anyway, you evil demons leave Apollo alone, and let the real, optimistic Apollo back in.

    Toot away bud, you earned it
  4. Jim Benning's Drafting

    Yes and no... yes getting to pick 5th is obviously a big advantage, however his drafting in the later rounds is actually fairly close to or perhaps even better than those picks. Boeser, Gaudette, Lind, Gadjovich, Demko, Lockwood and Palmu are the first that comes to mind. They may be left overs from the 1st round, but we have to pick at some stage.... And yes I’m fully aware only Boeser is yet to play of those, but compared to what the future of this franchise looked like 4 years ago, I think its fair to sing his praises. Particularly bearing in mind, how we’ve been screwed in the draft lottery the last few years.
  5. Jim Benning's Drafting

    JB's drafting has turned the future of this franchise around in less than 4 years. From only having Horvat to take the rains after the Sedins, he has given the entire fan base hope for the future, with some really screwed drafting. We were always going to have some tough years, but there is a better than average chance that from next year we will be heading north in the tables. Onward and Upwards... In Benning we trust.
  6. 3-2 Canucks... 12 blocked shots
  7. Pettersson Horvat Boeser - You call it.

    Was about to say the same... If Gaudette becomes as good as we hope for, he may be able to lead the second line a la Kessler, and the Pettersson would become available for the 1st line wing. There is going to be a lot moving about with the prospects over the next 2-4 years... On top of the players you mentioned there is still Sutter, Gaunce, Baertschi + who ever Benning drafts over the next few years. But that top line looks like dynamite.... Only way I see Pettersson or Horvat on the second line will be if we sign a LW power forward to the top line . Also, 1C may not be available if a certain C from Islanders become interested in serious dosh... But yeah looking at all these future possibilities would make even a losing season seem survivable....
  8. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Winnipeg Jets

    Its seems to be going the way most expected at the start of the season. Good start, playing well, youth getting better and then the dreaded injury bug.... the vets running out of gas etc. Still like the way we've performed overall this season. Been a positive experience and bodes well for the future.
  9. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Winnipeg Jets

    Without Horvat and Sutter this is not really surprising...
  10. COACHES in VANCOUVER - I don't get it . . .

    Merry Christmas....
  11. Surely we'll trade for him and put him up on the beach in Florida until the contact expires...
  12. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Calgary Flames

    Are you comparing talent like Toews, Malkin and Crosby with Gagner???? Horvat was never thrown to the wolves, and a far stronger mindset.
  13. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Calgary Flames

    Granlund got put down the line up to support JV and Gaunce. If you wanna roll 3 lines, you can just play garbage with the rookies
  14. Best Athlete In the World?

    Pretty good list... Will add Schumacher, Phelps, Ronaldo, Eddy Merckx, Indurain, Maradona..... But to find the one outstanding over everyone else is not possible... all depends on how interested people are in that particular sports.....
