  1. http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/kassians-hit-launches-hartman-head-first-boards/ 0:34 shows the best angle.
  2. National Bush League. Guds deserved what he got in the game, but their should have been an instigator call on the Boston player. A suspension is ridiculous. Meanwhile, we have 2 min call for this... http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/kassians-hit-launches-hartman-head-first-boards/
  3. I think NJ is looking like a great up and coming team; especially with Schneid's backing them up. Getting that 1st overall was a game changer for that team (and stings even more for Canuck fans). Happy for Hall too. Bet he's feeling a whole lot better about the trade now.
  4. Guddy sits 2 games 'cause he hit the wrong Bruin runt.
  5. Would have been worth it if it had been the rat boy.
  6. He's a bruin slayer. Good for a couple of points tonight.
  7. That rates as high as some of Kes' best dives!
  8. I like it! Tag team smack down on Rat Boy or Drunken Keith. Or, both.
  9. Need lots of this tonight.
  10. 3-1 Nucks Vanek scores two, 'cause he loves scoring on those B's.
  11. What I mean is that the team doesn't need the $ right now. It's doubtful that the team is going to play any SC games this year, so using the $ to get better players goes against the grain. Adding anymore vets (in the next 2 years) would be pointless for a team in the middle of a rebuild. Eriksson wouldn't be the first guy traded to the Canucks that started off with a bad season. He's had a great career so far, so I prefer to wait and see how this year pans out for him. Calling people 'delusional' around here is an overused comment and is usually used to offend.
  12. The Clarkson signing was worse and the comparison is still ridiculous. Going into the 5th year of his contract we've already seen what Clarkson can cannot do, while we've just seen Eriksson in year one. His first season has been underwhelming (which isn't uncommon with Canuck trades), but there is still a lot of time for him to return to form. For the time being, his cap hit nor his game is hurting this team.
  13. That's a nice looking lineup coming along. I will be watching what Dahlen does in Europe - see if he can achieve a high level without the help from Pettersson. He might be challenging Goldy next season. He might be a great playmaker for Horvat and Kane. Really like that 3rd line...can check and score.
  14. http://www.spotrac.com/nhl/tools/buyout-calculator/loui-eriksson-1652/2017-10-18/ That's a lot of $ for nothing (and the chicks aren't free).
  15. I don't think he has a 'thing' for Eriksson; he just thinks Loui hasn't been utilized correctly and that if/when he is we should see more production. How anyone can compare Loui to Clarkson is puzzling. Clarkson's best season was in 2011 where he had 46pts on a team that was loaded with offensive players. He never came close to that season, before or since 2011. Hardly comparable to Eriksson's numbers, who's overall game; excluding offence, is far superior to Clarkson's. DC was an undrafted player, who entered the league as a physical 4th liner. He happened to play on a team laden with incredible scorers and playmakers, so he was able to have a couple of good seasons. That's about it.
