  1. The Canucks have had few stellar D-MEN over the decades and we could use one or two if you ask me.How many norris trophy guys have the Canucks had in 47 years, not a one,OUCH! Dave Babaych,Mattias Ohlund or Alex Edler was the closest we have come to it. I see that a few smaller defenseman are having a great playoffs, but over a series with bigger guys coming to destroy you it does make you wonder why a smaller guy wants to play defense.Trying to push guys that out weigh and out muscle you all the time is hard,you had better have big time wheels and positioning to counter that attack. For me I would take the bigger guy,Defense is 90% positioning,when you see guys chasing behind the net you just wonder WHY? Slower defenseman standing right in front do just as good a job as some fool skating himself into the ice chasing guys.Guys like Harold Snepts or Dana Murzan were positioned right in front they made careers doing that very same thing. This is why I for one am hoping we take a Defensemen again this year at pick five (Timothy Liljegren) would be a good fit.We have got ot get a gem and a Norris winner eventually,damn it.Stanley Cups are built on Norris trophy winners a huge percentage of the time.YES,THE CANUCK FANS COULD USE A STANLEY CUP AS WELL.
  2. I for one would like us to draft Liligren,hopefully we get this young D-MAN. Worst scoring D in the league,needs all the help they can get. Also that young man "CAN" really play in the d-zone. We need great players and I think he could be one for the Canucks. I 'm hoping we get the player we want instead of something like Columbus(last year) taking the guy we really wanted. It seemed like a let down,especially after dropping from 3rd to 5th,we could use some (GOOD) luck for a change.
  3. Sorry, no political correctness when it comes to hockey,certain teams have been extremely lucky over the years to get superstar players,OR ALL THE HOCKEY TALK IS ABOUT THEM(LEAFS).This why we hate them.The way they talked about Toronto this year you would swear they aready won the cup,as "THE DONALD"would say,SAD. I for one would like a first overall pick,what,that's right,THE CANUCKS have never had one in 46 or 47 years,is there any wonder why we hate the teams that they have to change the rules of LOTTO DRAFT just to keep them from getting more FIRST OVERALLS. With the way the new NHL DRAFT is set-up it's most aggravating to drop in the draft time and time again,when we need some talent. So happy to see the Oilers and the Gretzsky show be knocked out of the play-off.they have won enough, ffs! The hype was just sickening,see NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT.
  4. I see some people are already talking about "TANKING" for the new season. Let me just say, give up this ABSURD idea. For the lotto system only needs LUCK to be successful and tanking doesn't guarantee you get a top 3 pick, just look at the last 2 years,we went down both times now that we could really use some talent on this team.rebuilding is by luck in this new NHL. unless you are a US TEAM.or lucky as hell (that's you Edmonton and Toronto)HAD TO CHANGE THE RULES BECAUSE OF THOSE LUCKY BASTARDS. CANADA AND THE CANUCKS NEED A STANLEY CUP. Damn I'm ranting again,but the truth hurts ,this team is just killing me.
  5. If and I mean "IF" this team ever gets a first overall in a good draft year (you know that generational player,another PAVEL BURE)or even goes up in the lotto draft.B.S. then and only then will we see the talented players needed that every Stanley Cup winner has had. no star players no cup. ALSO PUT THE GUNS AWAY,PLEASE,THIS ISN'T TRUMPS AMERICA. CANUCK FANS ARE FRAGILE RIGHT NOW. WE DON'T NEED ANY SUGGESTIONS OF SUICIDE. THANKS.
  6. When you mention the success of teams like Oilers and Toronto and Pittsburg I don't think jerseys I think who fills said jerseys. OH YA PLAYERS LIKE MCDAVID, MATHEWS, CROSBY. If we were ever to get a generational player like these guys, our identity would change dramatically. We can't even luck out on this stupid lotto draft B.S. so how the heck are we to change things. We need some serious jersey fillers. Because we are going to loose the best players the Canucks have ever had (Sedins)and we are going to need replacements very soon. I want a stanley cup for us fans.Lets get on that,right.
  7. I for one would be stoked to get Liljgren, we didn't get many points from the backend over the last few years and defensemen with the ability to help it this regard are sorely needed. Also he is defensibly responsible this help alot. Nothing I hate more than seeing us get scored on time after time with defensemen doing the tirefire drill. We need this young stud defenseman more than forwards to set the pace of the game like BOBBY ORR OR DENIS POTVIN Did back in the day. WHO AMONG US AS CANUCK FANS WOULDN'T LOVE TO SEE THAT.
  8. SOMEBODY'S GOT TO TELL TREV THAT GREY SUIT IS CURSED,BURN IT. MAYBE SOMEDAY WE WILL GO UP IN THE DRAFT INSTEAD OF ALWAYS DROPPING. THEN AGAIN, JB DOES KNOW HOW TO DRAFT, NOT LIKE SOME OF OUR PREVIOUS SCOUTS AND GMS. MAN THEY WERE JUST ABYSMAL FOR SO MANY DRAFTS. JUST LOOK IN THE RAFTERS IF YOU THINK I'M LYING.
  9. Well $&!#, you have got to be kidding me. If anything is offensive its the Catholic Church, who was so involved at ground zero of assimilating those poor first nation people. it should be the churches that are found offensive for the atrocities they let happen and where part of and covered up. Shame on people for letting that happen in the name of religion, never mind some silly license plate. YA I SAID IT!
  10. I would like to add that the shot he took from behind into the boards from that Calgary player was a penalty for boarding and no call.WHAT A WARRIOR TO COME BACK.. If the league is trying to protect it's players you have to call a penalty a penalty doesn't matter when.Some $&!#ty little thing gets called and not a blatant attempt to injure a player doesn't.Terrible refs,just terrible. Down goes Calgary,BOO HOO.. (YEAH)THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE ALL SO $H!T HOT.
  11. I FEEL GOOD NOW , I JUST HEARD THE EDMONTON OILERS MADE THE PLAYOFFS FIRST TIME SINCE GET THIS "SINCE 2006" WOW .THE LEAFS HAVE MADE IT TWICE. I GUESS THEY "HAVE" HAD A BIT LONGER TO GET A WINNER TOGETHER THAN OUR CANUCKS. BE PATIENT OUR TIME WILL COME SOON.
  12. This reminds me of when the U.S.A. lost badly at the world cup and Jeremy Roenick had a hissy fit. Tiger is another old time hockey guy trying to still be relevent today so he isn't completely forgotten,as stated WHO CARES. The media from back east just loves to kick the Canucks when they are down. I realize that losing sucks but it's time to put on your big boy pants Jeremy and Tiger and leave it to the pros to do their jobs, because you guys would be GMS OR PRESIDENTS of teams if you really knew what the hell you were doing. THAT IS ALL!
  13. Well the way I see it is, If you keep losing there is more of a chance of negativity to go around,what we need is a few really skilled guys to help make everyone look better. The leafs have Mathews and he has single handedly made some good players great, Similarly Mcdavid or Gretzky in Edmonton,if the Canucks can finally get a few Superstar players(LIKE THE SEDINS USED TO BE) to boost everyones play the negativity will die right there on the spot. It takes luck to get these Superstar players and the Canucks could use a little luck in that category. As fans if we won a cup (Just one for %^&* sakes) we would not be as disheartened,it's just that we love this team so much we live and breath Hockey here in Vancouver. Looking forward to the day we can give all of B.C. the chance to celebrate.
  14. WHAT THE CANUCK ORGANIZATION NEEDS THE MOST, MEDIA PEOPLE LIKE JOHN SHORTHOUSE THAT CALL THE GAME FOR THE MOST PART FAIR AND SQUARE. NOT ALL THAT HOMER STUFF FROM RON AND DON ROUTINE. HAVING SOME OTHER TEAMS ANNOUNCERS DOING YOUR HOME GAMES JUST SOUNDS LIKE THE ENEMY TO REAL FANS.I AM TALKING TO YOU CBC HOCKEY NIGHT CBC,THE PEOPLE RUNNING THAT CHANNEL THINK ANNE IS A GOOD IDEA FOR CANADA TO WATCH, OLD FUDDY DUDDYS THE LOT. OUR TAX DOLLARS HARD AT WORK.JUST SAYING. I AM SO SICK OF SOME EX OILER OR FLAME OR KING BEING OUR MEDIA PEOPLE WE SHOULD HAVE COMPENTENT EX-CANUCKS STEP IN AND HELP CALL THE GAMES PLAY BY PLAY OR BE COLOR PEOPLE. THE EAST STOLE JIM HUGHSON FROM US AND WE COULD USE SOMEONE OF THAT COMPETENCE AGAIN. SO SICK OF HEARING ABOUT THE LEAFS OR EDMONTON OR CALGARY THEY HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING TO WARRANT ALL THIS PRAISE,OTHER THAN GET INTO THE PLAYOFFS,GETTING IN AND GOING FAR ARE VERY DIFFERENT THINGS. THAT'S MY RANT FOR TODAY,THANKS TO ALL REAL CANUCK FANS.
  15. Well, being an original fan from the beginning ,for me It would mean a great deal. We deserve it for all the years of bad luck and crappy drafting etc.in 2011 we are the only Canadian team in history to loose the cup at home(ouch).Went to the final three times and lost all three,Now that is truly unlucky and heartbreaking. All the talk about parity throughout the league, but why is it that no Canadian team has won for decades,seems a little rigged to me. We have to get the US all loving Hockey for the sake of the game and yet it is the Canadian teams subsidizing some of those same teams WTF. If they can't make it on their own,sorry no more handouts for Arizona or the like. I hope in my lifetime I get to see the Canucks finally win a cup ,it would be epic for B.C.and like I said,it would mean a great deal, FOR ME.
