Huberdeau is an overrated prospect, same with strome


Oh come on, judging them by one game?

Where were the Sedins when we needed them most on the powerplay in game 7 vs the Bruins? They must be overrated, since they didn't show up.

Huberdeau and Strome will be fantastic players, they are in no way overrated at all. They will become superstars, Strome playing behind Tavares and Huberdeau becoming a key component in Florida's core. (Huberdeau, Gudbranson, Kulikov, Markstromm)

so who else is stoked that we have a better chance next year?


I'm excited for the fact that we will likely see Corrado and Gaunce on the team (IMO)

I'm starting to think that there's some seriously overrated players in this group. Especially among the D-men.


I knew that before the camp ended, Murphy has been a bust and opting for size and tentativeness in Reinhart over the all round hardworking style Corrado brings is really look like a bust move aswell.

I never complained about him not letting players develop chemistry. (Just for the record to clear that up, I never saw it as an issue)

I just think he can't motivate his players, and yeah I was talking about last years playoffs specificlly with those 2 examples but there have been issues in past years too, he doesn't make neccisary adjustments in how we play aswell IMO, it was never more obvious to me than last year when LA knew what we were going to do whenever he knew it.

I guess the point of my original comment is that to me Spott seems as tentative as AV seems in the playoffs, and it shows in how the players play on the ice.

Doesn't matter if you made that complaint or not, 10,000 others did. For the last 5 years.

No way we get 4 past Gibson in 1 period.

CORRADO CURSE.



The only reason why Murphy is on this team is because Spott coaches his team in juniors.

Sedins worked hard all game, got most of our best chances, battled tooth and nail and never quit.

I don't think Huberdeau is overrated but he hasn't lived up to his hype in this tournament.

Ryan Murphy over Corrado may have been the stupidest decision i've personally ever seen in the WJC.

Oh and taking Subban as a starter over Binnington, despite Subban being outplayed.

How the hell can they choke this badly? To think i was relieved after the Russia game.

Did they take sleeping pills before the game?

BAD MOVE!!!

BAD FING MOVE

HAHAHA ANOTHER INJURED MORON ON OUR TEAM

HE WILL JOIN US IN 2019

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

Subban should've been pulled after the third goal and a time out should have been called. The team needed a spark of some kind, it's too late now.

Sad how everyone is jumping on Subban after he stole us the last two games. The whole team is playing terribly, but this is by no means a concrete reflection of their capabilities.

Actually it does matter, cause you can't look at me and say I am changing my mind and putting me with all those other people in that stereotype like you did in your other post, since I have had the same opinion all along.

Anyways lets just quit arguing, it really doesn't belong in this thread and I have a headache and don't feel like getting into a big debate about it, we both have our opinions and that's fine we are entitled to them.

Huberdeau is an overrated prospect,


I hate being right here, but I said this was an average team Canada after the first game.

Nugent-Hopkins and Strome are the only real high end talent they seem to have up front this year. Huberdeau has been average at best, and in no way looks like an impact player.

And the D is just overrated from top to bottom. You're telling me Hamilton is the best young junior defenseman Canada has to offer? I haven't seen it at all.

Corrado will be too old for the team next year, unfortunately. This was his last chance and Spott had to go and play favourites.

Because that's why we are down 4-0?

He could have had all goals, not that they are necessarily weak goals, but ones that you expect a clutch goalie to make. The 4th goal was bad, and he didn't battle through the two screens, that other one was a nice shot though.

Theres no blaming any particular player for this, they've all played poorly.
Any one decision such as Binnington over Subban, or Corrado over Murphy, would not have mattered one bit if the rest of the team stunk as bad as they have this game.

I really dont see Huberdeau being a superstar. Just my opinion though and he hasn't had much impact in this tourny no?

Looks like the experiment where the biggest physical presence on your top 2 lines is RNH didn't work. This has to be 2 of the softest top 2 lines Canada has ever had. Of course they briefly had Ritchie playing with Strome but old genius Spott saw the success they were having and quickly broke them up.

Exactly, we needed a timeout before the game got away from us.

Hockey ain't about puck possesion anymore, it's about fancy dangles and snipers. How many snipers do we have on this team?

0.

Haven't produced a pure sniper in years.

Never said such a thing.

My point is the general consensus for years was that AV didn't give his lines a chance, switched them up way too early, no wounder X and Y never had any chemistry, ect...

Now you (and others?) are saying he has the opposite problem, that he doesn't make changes quick enough.

Looking at the big picture I find it funny because how can a guy both change things to quickly and not change things quick enough? Well, he's a Canuck. He can't do anything right. That's how.
