[Injuries] Canucks 2017/18

Hmmm right on the edge of timeframe.  

If it were longer one could assume we would go shopping for another D, possibly from Vegas.

i think this means Pouliot gets a bit of an early look and a chance to become an NHLer.  If he fails, our season is already in tough shape.  If either of Del Zotto or Hutton show they can't play top four minutes (likely) we are also in trouble.

Edler and Taney are our least replaceable players.

At least we will get to see what Poo Pou can't bring to the table.

 

Probably see Wiercoch up, who is a capable NHL defender. Yay for depth. Remember that time we had Mojzis, Butencheon, Weinrich, Sean Brown, Carney, McCarthy, and Preston Ryan all suit up? Hahahha

 

In the same game? Or the same season? I only recognize half those names.

Calgary was embarrassed, I think at least two injuries tonight setting up the season's excuses...... again.

Tkachuk will be all over the D, especially Tanev, he goes down and management will sit on their hands a whine about injuries....again, but will do nothing because they spent all their cap money and can't make any deals.

 

Just remember they let Tryamkin walk, he left, but did they do enough in that 48 hour period to get him to stay? It was their job, but seeing how they have no idea how to deal with raw rookies even now, it is not surprising.

 

Yes I posted this to the wrong thread.duh:blink:

Im pissed at management for not having the foresight to recognize that Tryamkin needed some babysitting.  It's not like he's Swedish and could snuggle up if things got tough for him and voice his concerns.   Should have had HR on him right from the start to help him personally succeed, instead we lost a potential and very potent top four guy, possibly for good.  Holm has been underwhelming to say the least, at least Weichoich has some size though..

 

On the flip side good job creating depth this summer...now we will see how it pans out.

Canucks Management has made a boatload of mistakes, Tryamkin is just one of them

What's all this ridiculous 'injuries as an excuse' nonsense? 

 

We're a rebuilding team, we don't need an 'excuse' beyond that to suck. All injuries are likely to mean is that we're going be more sucky and less mediocre unless depth players can capably fill in.

 

Which they usually can't for that long.

They haven't done anything else management should do and foresight...:lol::lol: just look at how many draftees are playing and where they have taken the team, almost DFL.

Benning and Linden need the excuse to partially explain their ineptitude, the players they have assembled are doing their best, their very best but most are just barely out of the AHL levels or retirement.

That's not ineptitude, it's rebuilding. Rebuilding teams aren't very good. 

 

I'm not sure what's so difficult to grasp about that concept? 

 

We used to be a good, contending team, now we're not. It's a natural cycle. Ups and downs, peaks and valleys. We're in a valley. The most brilliant NHL management doesn't change that.

If they have to explain their "ineptitude"

 

You have to explain your unceasing ignorance in regards to obvious truth vs your opinion

For what, the injuries or the complaining?
