  1. If this deal is any indication, it's a buyer's market for sure.
  2. From the title I thought you were talking about a fear of Tryamkin
  3. I'm out east so I was watching this on the Pens feed and man are they homers... if anybody complains about John Garrett here being a homer check out some of the other teams' commentators
  4. Exactly. The difference between the 2 markets alone is enough of a shock to anybody's system and needs lots of time to get used to. Patience.
  5. I'm in the opposite boat to be honest. I thought it was a bad deal at the time but I've grown fonder of it over time. Now I like the trade and still think we come out on top. Gudbranson is a role model. He's a vocal, emotional, and well-spoken leader. Not to mention his intimidating stature and physicality. All of those put together are his intangibles you hear so much about. Tryamkin does not make him expendable. What (most of) this fan base needs to learn is that you can't have 1 guy pulling on the rope in terms of pushback. They always get discouraged and broken down less than halfway through the season. We need a wolf pack mentality so that teams stop feasting on the softness of this team. To develop that wolf pack mentality, you need multiple guys out there with plenty of push back, so that other Canucks know that there are intimidating guys on the team who will have their backs. They start joining that train, and you start getting buy in from everyone - wolf pack mentality. The twins are great and we have been lucky to have them on this team for so long, but I think they bring a certain tame nature to this team. I'm not ashamed to say that I am looking forward to when we change that image, which comes with the changing of the old guard. People might say that 2 players alone don't have that effect on the whole team, but it's not any 2 players. It's the 2 players who are the faces and identity of this NHL club.
  6. I'm 0/5 but a buddy of mine won free wedges and gave me his. Does that count as 1/5?
  7. Really? Picked up all that didja? Careful, don't let any of it affect your zen.
  8. If that was enough you probably should have let it be. I never said he should expect anything. But as a young player if the coach think of you as an absolute last resort, dressing a guy who's injured and can't play a minute of hockey, it tends to destroy your confidence. Anyways, like I said to the other stud, moving on... He got into the lineup, and played well imo. Looked good on the PP. I got better things to do with my time than rehashing old arguments. You enjoy your Sunday.
  9. Are we still on this? Kid got into the lineup already and played decently well Imo. He looked good on the PP getting shots through. Moving on, guy. You should do the same.
  10. Well you got me. Phil Kessel can average 18 mins of ice time while being 20 pounds overweight, but hey I'm glad Boucher finally in tip top shape to get his chance. We'll see where he takes it, as long as he gets a fair chance (aka not 6 mins and then benched for a month).
  11. Good for you. I'm just happy we finally see the kid play.
  12. @oldnews ok this is getting ridiculous
  13. Nope, don't really care much for what Dan the smurf has to say. Feel free to hold that against me.
  14. Well if Dan Murphy says he's unfit...
  15. @oldnews Look at that, the coaching staff finally deemed him to be "fit enough" to play.
