  1. An Open Letter to JB Haters

    No hope! The team has no one ! The Sedins are old slow sisters, force them back to Sweden. Horvat is a 3rd line Ahler at best, trade him for a 4th round pick. Hutton is not really any good, too soft, trade him for a 5th round pick. Virtanen what a waste of a pick, has no clue on the ice, 4th line Ahler. McCann complete bust. Baertschi send him back to Cal. Etem, big joke. Tanev, average player playing way above his skill level. Sutter, Glass man. Granlund, not even an Ahler. Sbisa, 7th D-man, playing on the second pairing????? Tryamkin, huge Russian poop. Markstrom, average at best. The rest are not worth a mention.
  2. (Discussion) Auston Matthews

    Nothing in Matthews game suggests bust! You have a feeling nothing more.

    Was this not Kyle Connors first year, why would he not be in the awards. He was the top point producer.
  4. I was thinking how the young guns of the league would stack up East against West, with all players on entry level contracts. Below is what I came up with. Who would you have chosen? Note: There are too many good centers, that is why some are playing wing. Defense was chosen left and right handed shots. Entry Level Contract All Star: East VS West West: Artemi Panarin/Connor McDavid / Nathan MacKinnon Johnny Gaudreau/Sean Monahan/Nikolaj Ehlers Filip Forsberg/Leon Draisaitl/Valeri Nichushkin Max Domi/Bo Horvat/Jake Virtanen Brett Ritchie Hampus Lindholm/John Klingberg Darnell Nurse/Seth Jones Ben Hutton/Colton Parayko Sami Vatanen Martin Jones John Gibson East: Mike Hoffman/Evgeny Kuznetsov/Nikita Kucherov Dylan Larkin/Jack Eichel/Mark Stone Ondrej Palat/Tyler Johnson/Sam Reinhart Chris Kreider/Nick Bjugstad/Ryan Strome Kevin Hayes Shayne Gostisbehere/ Aaron Ekblad Noah Hanifin/Damon Severson Torey Krug/Radko Gudas Griffin Reinhart Petr Mrazek Andrei Vasilevskiy
  5. You need a top 5 pick to win a Cup!!

    You got to love this type of argument! Both side are right in their own way. Does having high draft picks (1-6) help in winning a Cup of course its does, but is it 100% of the equation to winning a Cup? The real question should be: how much does having a high draft pick increase your odds of winning a cup? Anyone who has watched hockey for any length of time knows that there are many factors in winning a cup and drafting is just the beginning of the process. I would say the late round draft picks are sometimes the difference makers on a cup winning team. When most teams that make it to the Cup finals have top picks that even things out its the team with the better bottom players that makes the difference. Of course many people do not what to believe it, but the league also has a big factor in who they want winning the Cup.
  6. Not really, but keep thinking that.
  7. Emerson Etem Talk

    Canucks are getting a player already on the cusp of becoming an NHL regular, with a first round pedigree and skills to show.
  8. Emerson Etem Talk

    Like how you avoided being totally wrong about him not producing at any level. Did not do your research before posting your BS.
  9. Emerson Etem Talk

    This post is all kinds of funny.
  10. Hockey IQ can not be taught is such a miss leading statement! The game of hockey is something learnt, JV has hockey IQ. what he does not have is the natural instincts as to where to be on the ice. There are only a very small percentage of players that have that kind of instincts.
  11. This is where the problem is: sending JV back to Juniors does not automatically guarantee that his game well develop any better. He needs to learn how to play at the NHL level not go back to Juniors and try to change his game to better suit the NHL game. JV is not like a lot of players who where brought in too early to play a top role. JV is not being put in the situation where he has to be one of the main point producers. The Canucks what him to learn the positioning game first and let the point production come along slowly. It will be a bonus if he picks up the pace on his point production, but right now they what him learning other aspects of the game. It is a 50/50 chance his development is better developed at the NHL level or the CHL.

  14. Love for Jake Virtanen

    There are way too many immature posters on this site who would like to see JV fail, so they can post that the player they wanted should have been drafted.
  15. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    You got it you are sure not understanding are you? you believe JV is not learning and I'm saying you and many others are over reacting like little brats!
