  1. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. New York Rangers

    Oh and thanks a lot NHL.com for showing only the Rangers shootout goals a**holes.
  2. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. New York Rangers

    Those were dark years between McLean and Luongo. I remember having 4 goalies in 98' McLean, Irbe, Burke and Snow with a combined 3.23 GAA We had Garth f'n Snow as our starter the following year then a washed up Felix Potvin who lost his job to Bob Essensa!

    I'm just excited to see a Canuck Defenseman get a shot through to the net with traffic in front and not into a defenders shin pads.
  4. Canucks Property in Olympics?

    Meh, would rather watch Canucks hockey IMO. We got games vs SJ Boston Vegas during the Olympics. No way I'm missing that to watch mostly plugs try and win a meaningless gold medal.
  5. Joffrey Lupul calls out Leafs on Instagram, says they cheat

    Screw Lupul, lost all respect for him after he tried to take out Henrik. At least he hit that clown Kadri.

    Jamie Benn as Bertuzzi. Nikita Kucherov as Naslund. Paul Stastny as BMO.
  7. [Discussion] Why Don't We Recreate 2011?

    I do agree with you to an extent. He produced average top 6 numbers in the regular season in 2010 and 11. His playoff numbers on the other hand were around his career average which equals to about 37pts per 82 games. I'm not sure those numbers qualify as average top 6 numbers correct me if I'm wrong.

    I only used Tim Jackman as an argument to show that not all players with great Corsi percentage figures are good players.
  9. [Discussion] Why Don't We Recreate 2011?

    Yeah but how does that make him a top 6 forward? TIM JACKMAN had excellent Corsi percentage figures in 2011 similar to MayRay in fact and played in all 82 games. In your eyes is Tim Jackman a top 6 forward? As for him being 6th in point production in the 11 playoffs that's right where I would expect him to be. With a healthy Samuelsson he's likely 7th but thats just speculation. He's a 3rd line winger at best imo. Raymond's Corsi was superior to every Canuck in 2011 sure but how does that make him superior to (not even mentioning our top guys) a guy like Samuelsson?
  10. [Discussion] Why Don't We Recreate 2011?

    8pts in 24 is pretty much Raffi Torres level scoring without the hitting . That's not very good especially when you get more minutes and play with better linemates. Imo you could have plugged anybody in with Kesler/Samuelsson that season and the season before Kesler/Demitra/Sundin and they would've put up decent numbers. Ok cool so anybody with a different opinion should choose a different sport? That's nice.
  11. [Discussion] Why Don't We Recreate 2011?

    I said they weren't the best 5 on 5 team never said they were garbage. Malhotra only played 4th line for the SCF where he only had one eye and played with oreskovich and glass, that line was IMO ineffective. Baer and Granny are prospects that have already had better seasons than Raymond at a similar age. Eriksson is a former 30G 70pt 2 way winger. Sutter is an excellent match up centre with good speed defensive ability and shot. I would not take Ray or Higgy over any of the players you listed.
  12. [Discussion] Why Don't We Recreate 2011?

    Ok cool. All I remember is being extremely disappointed in both their performances during that run. Raymond had 2G in 24 games in the playoffs and Higgins 4 in 25. They did not belong in the top 6 of a Stanley Cup contending team period.
  13. [Discussion] Why Don't We Recreate 2011?

    Ok I took it too far when I called them scrubs lol. What I meant was they don't belong on a contending team's top 6. Raymond had 2G in 24 games in the playoffs and Higgins 4 in 25. Barely even middle 6 production.
  14. [Discussion] Why Don't We Recreate 2011?

    Not taking anything away from the 2011 squad but they were way too reliant on the power play. They were a great team but not the best 5 on 5. They also seemed a bit fragile mentally. Almost getting reverse swept by Chicago was embarrassing. We lacked the depth to roll 4 lines. We had a great 1st line. Ryan Kesler basically was the 2nd line. Usually played with scrubs like Raymond and Higgins. 3rd line was good with Lappy Hansen n Torres. 4th line was non existent.
  15. Canucks have absolutely no star power!!!

    LOL Michael Frolik has more star power than Bo. Cool story bro.
