  1. NHL has some explaining to do

    Cool. You done complaining yet?
  2. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    Kypreos is only ok with that type of hockey because he wasn’t skilled enough to play the nhl without the WWE style antics. The game has changed. It’s time to get rid of the stupid after the hit wrestling match and let skill have a place to flourish. I love hitting and will always love hitting. But the bull crap slamming g people on the ice is reckless and hurts people. Kypreos should know the ice hurts more than the next guy... how’s your head Nick?
  3. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/morrisseys-hit-oshie-compare-mathesons-pettersson/ I wonder how Kypreos would like it if he got slammed into some ice causing him a concussion.
  4. Ok Virtanen Haters... time to man up

    Maybe Jake will prove that a hockey IQ is something that can be improved?

    Money doesn’t mean much, He’s still a human being. And I doubt it has to do with the game he was just in. Hope the guys alright. You know the saying more money more problems.
  6. What if this scenario occurs

    Best player available is best player available regardless of teams objective views. Hence why best player available. Now it’s true there is some objectivity when scouts make their lists. But usually teams scouts are somewhat close. And usually top 10 players are similar on most scouts lists. Once teams make picks for team needs then it isn’t bpa. either way I think sometimes you need to pick objectively otherwise you end up like Edmonton with a ton of talent that can’t be used then end up loosing it.

    Looks like Rask took the loss hard... joking aside hope he’s alright. https://www.tsn.ca/bruins-grant-g-rask-a-leave-of-absence-1.1206950 The Boston Bruins granted goaltender Tuukka Rask a leave of absence relating to a personal matter on Friday. “It’s not health related," Bruins general manager Don Sweeney said. "It’s important to respect his privacy and allow him to deal with it for the next few days.” The 31-year-old has a 4-4 record this season with a 3.05 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage. He entered Thursday's loss against the Vancouver Canucks in relief of Jaroslav Halak in the second period and allowed three goals on 14 shots. “I was just trying to keep it under 10 [goals allowed] -- that’s what I was worried about," Rask said after the 8-5 loss. "But yeah, you know, like I said, a loss is a loss, it doesn’t really matter at the end of the day. It was kind of a crazy game both ways. A lot of goals scored and at the end it looked like everyone was napping in the crowd. It was just one of those games where there wasn’t a whole lot of action on either end -- low shots and all of a sudden it’s 5-3, 8-5 whatever. "Yeah, weird game. But that’s entertainment and we’re just providing it.”

    I learned a new word today... who would have thought this gem of a post would come up so I could use my word... you sir are a faff.

    Don’t let 1 guy get you all worked up... there are 500 million other people who think Pettersson is amazing.
  10. Is There A Player Pettersson Can Be Compared To?

    Crazy watching the replay of Mogilny’s goals. how many goals would have gone in with a modern style butterfly goalie.

    Anson Carter.

    Willes’ Musings: Elias Pettersson’s skill set is unique in today’s NHL – The Province https://theprovince.com/sports/hockey/willes-musings-elias-petterssons-skill-set-is-unique-in-todays-nhl/amp On a related note, in the last three weeks the Canucks have watched the Panthers’ Michael Matheson deliver a hit that knocked Pettersson out for six games, the Golden Knights’ Thomas Hyka knock Sven Baertschi out for five games and counting, the Blackhawks’ Brandon Manning knock Troy Stecher out of a game and the Avs’ Matt Calvert deliver a cross-check to Boeser’s back. Not going to spend a lot of time on this one. If the Canucks aren’t concerned about the liberties being taken with their skilled players, they should be. Hockey has changed a lot in the last 25 years but it hasn’t changed that much.
