  1. There is a way and they did it and the Canucks will do it again the next time they play. Why is there so long between games!!
  2. I thought the Canucks played pretty good. They didn’t look quite as ready as the Oilers but it was their home opener they were clearly hyped up. If you look at the way the Canucks played this game from last year it appears to me to be a huge improvement. I didn’t like the results but I liked the direction this team looks like it is going.
  3. Sven missed a lot of games last year. I don’t think this is the last we will see of him on the Canucks. He won’t get claimed and he will be back up in a month when someone gets injured.
  4. I think some of the players have played too many preseason games. They are bored. I’m not worried though once real games hit the intensity will pick up, just like last year. Preseason is just for players to get their feet under them.
  5. Wow S^%& just got real. This could be our opening night roster or close to it.
  6. I don't see the big deal? Canucks practiced in Vancouver in the morning then flew to Edmonton for the game at night. That was way more same day travel. An hour of busing is nothing.
  7. It is most likely due to the preseason games being played in unconventional arenas in new locations, Victoria, Salt Lake City, Abbotsford.
  8. Interesting article on some of our prospects. https://theprovince.com/sports/hockey/nhl/vancouver-canucks/canucks-prospects-tracker-hoglander-hits-the-ground-running?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1569210475
  9. Canucks Vs Senators Tonight 7pm Streamed on Canucks.com The game is in Abbotsford so expecting a big game from old flabby back.
  10. My thoughts being at the game last night. A lot of sloppy passes by the young guys. I saw a lot of just lobbing the puck to no one or way off target. The passes weren't crisp and often slow which made it very easy for Calgary to pick them off and go the other way. The Horvat Miller Goldy line was our best line by far. For most of the game the Canucks couldn't hem the Calgary in their end. I think Calgary scored early which allowed them all to relax and just be in the game while the Canucks were tense and nervous for the first 2 periods. I think had the Canucks scored on one of the penalties early in the game it would have been a far different game but that isn't what happened so it is speculation. DiPietro looked bad in my opinion, he would do the Luongo belly flop on the first shot and then it was mostly up to the defenders to block the shot or get to the puck first. Tanev was super smooth. I saw many times were Calgary was about to be threat and Tanev would just calming break it up.
  11. On SN1 Will we see Pettersson or Hughes? Is Jake going to carry the team on his flabby back again tonight? Go Canucks Go Lineup brought to you by @-Vintage Canuck-
  12. I wonder when they will announce the lineup for tomorrow. I hope Petey and Quinn play in Victoria. In most years they wouldn’t play many veterans in the first preseason but they should give the fans in Victoria what they want!
  13. Who would have thought Petey would have the second longest neck on the team
  14. The obstacle is the way. Anything he has to struggle through will only make him a better and stronger player. If he was gifted time he wouldn't be developing.
