  1. I am thinking that Justin Schultz will be representing Canada in Sochi next year.

      I would have picked Crosby or Stamkos but thats just me.

      You guys while we are at it maybe we should take Kyle Wellwood over Crosby and Stamkos too.

  2. Jason Garrison so far?

    The concept of risk is not one that's well understood around these parts. What's risky is not a 2-year commitment at a pretty low cap hit to a well-established vet like Sami Salo, but a 6-year commitment to an unestablished guy like Jason Garrison who came out of nowhere to be a PP force last year, scoring 17 goals. And to say that he made a "very big hometown discount"...get serious. He got 6 years at $4.6M per, and he's Jason Garrison. What do you honestly think gave up? Maybe an extra $100K per year to go play in Long Island? The guy absolutely cashed in.
  3. Very strong performance by the Canucks - strongest of the year, easily. Big statement made by Schneider. And I am $XXX less wealthy after betting on the Wild.

  4. Gotta say, I don't like the Canucks' chances tonight.

  5. There appears to most definitely be some tension between Ryan Kesler and the Vancouver Canuck organization.

      .. they say that timing, and location, is everything .. :P

      Another suspension, perhaps? It's been a little quiet.

    4. Tearloch7


      .. merely a trifling delay to an MT such as the King .. gives him a chance to let his "hole" heal a bit ..

  6. Congratulations to Anton Rodin, who doubled his goal total, to 2, a few nights ago against Peoria.

      ^Now, now guys. Give him the response he wants. Don't be mean.



      kudos for making so many dumb people angry

      Gaunce is the future people. This kid is gonna be gold !

  7. 6 points in 7 games for Dennis Wideman. Anyone still laughing at Calgary for that one?

      Calgary: A shining example of prudent signings

      Could have got a nice one in Matta, but those genius's deciding trading down to grab Jankowski would be a smarter move.

      Smashian Kassian, who is inexplicably very high on the great Anton Rodin, is automatically writing off Mark Jankowski because he went a lot higher than where most scouts thought he should have gone. Nice job. The draft is not an exact science.

  8. That's 2 more points that this team really did not deserve. I'm sorry, but I'm seeing great weakness in the background of these Canucks. I am not sold.

      Most of us aren't either, but we'll take 2 points over 1 or even 0.

      Insane, isn't it?

      Wow Smashian, if you're serious, you're crazy.

    4. Shift-4


      You need to stop watching hockey because you clearly don't get it.

      The Oilers were lucky to get a point out of that game.

  9. Justin Schultz should not be this good, this quick. Truly special.

      Why is this so surprising? Sure he's a rookie but he is 22 and a lot of guys from his draft year like Pietrangelo, Karlsson, Doughty, Myers, Carlson, Bogosian and Del Zotto have been in the NHL for quite a while. One already has a Norris and another a Cup and gold medal.

    3. Tearloch7


      Burrows just made Schiltz look like a Bantam forward caught on defence

    4. Tearloch7


      Schlitz was absent a lot ..

  10. Brendan Gallagher looks very promising. Add him to the long list of players in the Canucks' own backyard who's existence they are apparently totally unaware of. 147th overall? Good thing we managed to snap up Adam Polasek at the 145 spot. Unbelievable.

      Monday morning quarterbacking with the benefit of hindsight....... nothing more to see here, folks. Just more of the same old, same old BS crap.

      I love how you made this post on draft day saying the Canucks missed out on him.

      Your life must be so happy.

  11. Wally Buono shows once again why is the GM of all GMs. Trades Reilly for help, allows Reilly the chance to thrive elsewhere, keeps Lulay happy. No distraction whatsoever. THAT is how it's done, Mr. Gillis.

      Where's Wellwood

      I don't agree with the Lulay-Reilly/Luongo-Schneider comparison but I do feel compelled to defend the CFL from people who bad mouth it. The CFL is very good football. It's not NFL level but it shouldn't be dismissed as a league.

      Geroy dsyd hi? What about Naslund who Gillis didnt even offer a contract to? :/

    4. Mr.DirtyDangles


      Canuckbeliever on behalf of the CFL go FRAK yourself !


  13. Forgotten amidst all of the Kassian hype is the staunch reality that the Vancouver Canucks still have yet to win a regulation game. Anybody still confident in them being Cup contenders?

      I'm still confident you haven't the slightest clue what hockey is and you just regurgitate bile you find on the internet. (Hint Hockey is the one with the sticks and no ball.)

  14. Costly Jason Garrison turnover leads to a Calgary PP. Potential turning-point upcoming.

      And not a mod around to witness the very thing ES had his posting privelages revoked for.

      Not to worry though, it's been preserved for posterity on his profile.

      .. it looks better on him than that big honker he is sporting .. /w

  15. James Reimer stopped 28 of 30 shots tonight for a big win in Pittsburgh. Most people forget how great he was in 2010-11 prior to getting concussed.

    1. EmployeeoftheMonth


      another goal for Kassian
