  1. "dreck" - wow, great word in perfect context. Thanks for this - you made my day !
  2. [Roster]Opening day forward line up

    No mention of Dahlen ?
  3. [Waivers] Alex Burrows

    It's interesting that the hockey world is raving about how William Karlsson suddenly blossomed when he went to VGK. From 9 goals and 6 goals in consecutive 81 game seasons in CBS he scored 43 with VGK. Many years earlier Burrows went from 3 goals and 12 goals in 81 game season to 28, 35, 26, 28 goal seasons playing with the Sedins. Sort of a similar path yet never seemed to get the same rave reviews Karlsson is getting.
  4. Juolevi or 2018 pick

    Appears he's coming in to the off season injured and requiring back surgery. Poor Benning can't win for losing. No luck at the draft lottery and now this.
  5. Name That Canuck!

    Dennis Ververgaert ?
  6. [Rumour] Oilers actively shopping Milan Lucic

    but....but....tell us how you REALLY feel about him........
  7. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Dallas Stars

    Watched the Winnipeg/Nashville game live and recorded the Vancouver/Dallas game which I watched AFTER the Wpg/Nas game. Seemed like I was watching 2 different leagues with the Wpg/Nas game in the upper echelon and the Van/Dal game somewhere MUCH lower.. It will be fun watching the playoffs with either Wpg or Nas going deep. Each plays a great up tempo game with plenty of hitting, good scoring and a solid back end. I hope Mr. Benning was taking notes......
  8. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Vegas Golden Knights

    Mr. Benning had better find some NHL calibre defensemen, at least 3 of them, sometime before next season. Preferably taller than 5'8" and heavier than 150 lbs....... This team is just getting shoved around at will and there is no pushback. It's depressing.
  9. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Arizona Coyotes

    I hope those who were opposed to re-signing Gudbranson watched the game last evening. There were at least 3 occasions when the Coyotes player came barrelling down the wing in possession, only to see Gudbranson steaming over to lay a hit and............the player just backed right off. Gudbranson hits hard and opponents know this. He intimidates them, and while he may not score 20 goals he is the deterrent the team needs on defense. Good signing imo.
  10. [PGT] Minnesota Wild vs. Vancouver Canucks

    In watching the past 10 games it seems to me that Danny still has some game and is able to pot a few when properly set up, but the game seems to have passed by Hank. His trademark used to be the precise passing including the saucer pass but those seem to be few and far between, and giveaways are more the norm. He also seems lost on the ice and unsure of where he needs to be, resulting in turnovers and frantic skating back to try (unsuccessfully) to catch the forward skating toward the Canucks net. The reduced ice time seems to support my observation, that he is now a liability on the ice. It's too bad because he & Danny carried this team for many productive years and their legacy is likely a HOF nomination. However, just like the rest of us, there comes a time when we have to quietly fade into retirement and watch the youngsters make their mark.
  11. [PGT] Colorado Avalanche vs. Vancouver Canucks

    I repeat, don't put the refs in a position where they have to call a penalty. Daniel did that. As a nationally accredited referee I would make that call every time. Keep your stick and arms off the player, especially in a position where the referee is shielded by you.
  12. [PGT] Colorado Avalanche vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Never put a referee in a position where he has to call a penalty. It's that simple.
  13. So, Hank sez they won't play for free - good. It's NOT the Sedins who should decide whether or not they will sign for a further term; it's the management who decides whether or not to OFFER them a contract. Said contract should specify the dollar amount (e.g. $2MM per Sedin X 1 year). If they don't like that, they don't get signed. It's not that difficult..............
  14. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks

    Would like to see Jake play angry. Hits are OK but let's see him just plain pissed off at not being a top 6 forward. Take it to the net and crush people on the way. Look at some Bertuzzi highlites from the West Coast Express prime years and slot them into his arsenal.
  15. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Carolina Hurricanes

    But....but.....they both come to camp in great shape. It's quite evident watching them on the ice, skating hard up and down the ice in fruitless chases for the puck, easing up abruptly just before contact with an opponent so they don't hurt him. Yup - they are in great physical shape - all that skating. In fairness, in their heyday they were fantastic, but they had a supporting cast in a different style of play so they could play catch with one another until someone found a space where they could accept a deft pass. They don't seem able to do that anymore. Trevor - it's time for YOU to decide whether or not the to re-up them and if they can contribute, not for them to decide whether or not they deign to honour the team with their talent for another year or two. Sorry to be so negative about two great players but father time catches up to us all and it's time to move ahead sans Sedins.
