"It's different. He's doing a lot of heavy lifting. Probably not using him in the offensive zone because in the back of my mind I know I can't overuse him and we are using him a lot... He's a bull. Bo can play a lot of minutes." - Green on Horvat's role

I wanna see Petey with better linemates.

 

When Bear cheese is back.

 

Line 1 Baertchi-Petersson-Boeser

Line 2 Goldobin-Horvat-Granlund/Gaudette

 

I think Virt is a good fit with Bo, put him on that RW. We most definitely need to upgrade that 1LW spot, with someone that can score but also brings snarl to  that line.

i am starting to think

that serious consideration needs to be given

to calling up dahlen

and allowing ep40 to assist with his nhl transition

i do not really care he might not be quite ready

 

ep40 needs to more to play for

so he does not adjust his game too much

out of frustration with his current teammates

 

or the canucks need to consider a trade

to get someone else who can really play with ep40

 

They should maybe see if Baer can finish some of his plays when he returns.  He is 3rd in shooting percentage in the league over the past 3 seasons at 5v5 among players with at least 120 games.  He's been used more as a passer but maybe he should be used as a goal scorer.  Baer typically gets his goals from 15ft and under while Boeser shoots from further out.  It gives Pettersson two options and Baer can also pass the puck.

That's what I expected. We always play like trash against the weak teams. 

 

For some reason we went back to sitting on leads. Really frustrates me when we see the line changing instead of forechecking. 

 

Honestly surprised we got a point out of it. I knew we'd lose this one. 

 

And for God's sakes can we take those two useless wingers off of Bo's line? Stop putting trash players with our best guys.

Pleased that coach elected to play Leipsic against Detroit, a team which "should" have been the perfect opportunity for him to show he is an NHL player.  Instead it showed that he is simply a "waterbug" that skates 100 mph in all directions and goes nowhere.  imo he is ineffective as a NHL calibre player.  Waiver time and bring up someone else (Dahlen ?).

We are pretty limited  with winger choices - so until we have players coming back off injury we get what we get.Count your blessing there is no Megna and no Chaput

Was thinking the same.  Or Zack MacEwen (2nd in points behind Boucher, 2nd in shots on goal, behind Boucher, 2nd in ppg, again behind Boucher)

A natural right winger, 6'4", 212 lbs, and not afraid to stand up for his teammates (3rd in penalty minutes)

dahlen has history with ep40

and i think ep40 will ensure that dahlen gets opportunities

and do whatever he can to spur his transition

not sure anyone else has that connection with ep40

 

time to start doing whatever it takes to maximize ep40's game

brock appears a bit too fragile presently to count on him playing for 10 to 20 game stretches

no one else really "gets" ep40 well enough on the ice to keep up with his level of play

time to address this

the team is close by utica now and it is easy to do this call up and test it out

We really missed Boeser in that game. Our talent drops off so hard after Pettersson. Entertaining enough game, and that's too bad about the extra point.

We need to protect our guys. Whatever spin they give it, Brock took a wicked crosscheck at home where it was replayed over the big screen for our bench to see 

 

I am convinced we would have won this game had Brock played

Can Dahlen even play defensively?lol

I only caught the last half of the game. I was encouraged to find the team up one and about double the shots. But the game I watched after that was quite disappointing. We were lucky to get a point. They looked tired and disinterested, other that EP of course. I fear that that could rub off on him even subconsciously.
