  1. Home blue OR half season blue, half white?

    White home jerseys for me We get to see the Canucks in blue on the road on tv It would be nice to see other teams colourful jerseys more The league will probably do it anyways, as a way to sell more jerseys for the owners, like the 3rd jerseys did for them

    Thank you !

    I am not implying anything as I don't know enough about him Others claim to know so much about him This is a discussion board and I asked a fair question did I not?

    What? Am I kidding about what? Please read before commenting I am not talking about the past, or who was left off in the past (when teams had NHL players) I said on THIS Olympic team they would be on at his age and only asking why Sweden didn't put him on a weaker Swedish Team as well?

    I don't pretend to know much about Pettersson There are people on here saying how great he will be That he will be a franchise player etc Making comparisons to the greats already What confuses me with that is, Looking at the Team Canada roster If we could have Crosby, McDavid etc (that some are suggesting he will be) at Elias age I would see them on this team Why isn't E.P. on the Sweden team? People are raving about E.P. performing in the mens league Sweden should know him better than anyone on here As I said, I don't know E.P. at all really I am not putting him down or putting him on a pedestal So if the so called experts who rave about him and make comparisons could explain why his own Country didn't include him in the Olympics if he is considered so elite, I would appreciate it I know the Canadian stars when they were at his age that you compare would have been on the Canadian team (as with the USA ones)

    Yes he is, Unfortunately it is Fredrik
  7. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

  8. Hockey Canada unveils men's 2018 Olympic roster

    I was thinking the same thing Wonder if he contacted the Canucks and said Hey, you don't seem to have much use Megna, how about releasing him ? If not for me, how about for your country
  9. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

    I have been reading on here peoples reasons for keeping Benning and agree with them, At the same time I read other peoples posts as reasons to not keep him and see that side too Both sides are right, Both sides are wrong kinda thing I guess it comes down to which argument the owner takes What Benning promised or told him would happen with signings/trades/drafts and what Aquamans expectations are, real or unrealistic?

    Wow I am surprised to hear of all the whining and complaining here The last several pages posters saying they wanted to see Sweden win over Canada Choose who you want, but is sure surprised me Canada is not your team ? (like the Canucks are) You want Canada to lose, for a player on another team? That loyalty seems for the player and not the team Hockey is a team sport So, you are the same people who wanted USA to win Olympics over Canada because Kesler played for them? (Oh, I see how you feel about him now) lol Just remember These players didn't pick their NHL teams You don't know the loyalty they will have here, but don't mind giving them all your loyalty So your player wins Gold and Olympic golds, then leaves the NHL early to go play in overseas leagues (Like Tree and others have) They take the Golds the NHL $ back with them , and those of you are still happy Canada never wins gold? That player would seem to have it all, what would you have in return? Oh yeah, You don't have a team and don't care I enjoy watching this Tournament and will always be glad to see Canada win and Canuck players do well in it But Canada is my team in this tournament, and the Olympics as the Canucks are in the NHL How about, Canuck players on all international teams do very well and Canada wins Gold? Let them try their hardest whichever teams they represent before becoming Canucks Let them show their allegiances to those teams, I myself don't want a player who needs to be coddled, I want him to have that hunger to achieve and fight for his team to be the best, not give up because it hasn't been obtained before 20 yrs. old Everywhere I go, people complain about people with self entitlement and never wanting to work to obtain anything, and here are people wishing that for these players because they are Canucks? Wow
  11. Got the idea from the heading "Post your line-ups and trade ideas here". Just thought it may be interesting to see what our team would look like today where posters could put together a team in hindsight from last 4 years Some Rules in doing so: Without theoretically trading Players for ? It's ok to pretend some trades were not made, and we kept our draft picks we traded instead Supposing we maintained same draft positioning Re -draft other players etc What would your team look like?
  12. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

    Curious, reading about Bennings drafting, while watching the World Juniors If a re-draft was to be done today Does anyone think Benning would now pick Pettersson over Mittlestadt ? Would anyone swap the pick ? I myself haven't caught Pettersson playing,and know little of him, but, every time I see Mittlestadt the puck follows him I think he will be a good player

    Ha Ha It would be more simple Something like if Vancouver won the 1st overall pick, that that would be the year the NHL announces last minute that teams can only draft 19 to 21 year olds

    Wasn't Cam Neely in this group?

    Others teams higher picks are in NHL So which is better? There were probably more elite players left off this Team that will be good players in the NHL, but the players picked were deemed more versatile or suited for the team game I am only stating facts in my reply, that we are not the only team heading in the right direction because we have one 2nd rounder on our Team If you notice the teams with many picks in this tourney, you will see that the strong teams in the NHL, have potential to only get stronger ! As far as Canada goes I am surprised we have only 1 gold medal in 8 years ;( Usually you hear how Canada could ice 2 teams in Olympics and Jr. to win gold Hopefully this year they get it right ! We probably have the strongest defence and goalie to go with strong balanced forwards on paper This is a team game with chemistry though Lets hope it is the right mix
