I love Virtuzzi, but comparing him to Sutter is off imo - very different players - and a role that as good as JV is, he will probably never be able to play.

Sutter is an elite shutdown center.  JV is a developing two-way winger - I don't see the point in claiming he's 'better' than Sutter - or even those other wingers for that matter - again very different types of players.

LOL that made me laugh. You probably haven't been watching the games too much. Sutter is barely adequate, let alone elite. Vittuzzi? Really? You know who are  2 very different players? Bertuzzi and Virtanen

With 4 games against California teams this week, yeah Anaheim is walking dead and LA is kinda middling at best but still they are big teams, I'd very much like to see Big Mac in the lineup a couple times. He's a big body, physical, and a pretty solid skater these are the perfect kind of games for a player of his stature. Undrafted, somewhat older, over looked player in the system. Definitely could see him his style of play working very nicely against teams like LA and San Jose. Anaheim might come back somewhat renewed. The GM is now the interim coach. Might play a little harder with him on the bench I dunno.

 

Either way, it'd be really nice to see him slot in for a couple games here. Since it sounds like Eagle isn't gonna be out super long. Big Mac's not incredibly young so we should really be trying to see what we have with him exactly and the best way to see that is with some game action at the NHL level. Only problem would be trying to figure out who sits. Motte, Jake and Goldy are really the only 3 I could see Green taking out. I think Goldy played pretty well last game though.

I often wonder if the Canucks idea of “rewarding “ young players from Utica is flying them to Vancouver to watch an NHL game. Kinda a mini vacation for doing a good job. 

Do they serve drinks and ordurves in the press box ?

Beats Utica.

Well I think not just the players who have improved should get rewarded by a shot at playing but the fans as well need to be rewarded as well.

I often give it to Benning with all of his mistakes but I really like how hard this team has been playing this season.   Lots of this is on a couple of players like Markstrom and Petey, and even Edler and Hutton.   I didn't see Markstrom or Elder showing this much improvement, but it sure is refreshing to see.

 

I hope the kid gets a shot and pushes someone above him either out or forced to turn it up.

Was a high end shutdown center. Don't know what has happened to him this year. Injuries finally catching up to him? He doesn't have very good chemistry with his wingers either this year.

I wonder if a player was injured in the last game and they are keeping it under wraps.

They called McEwen up around 2 hours after the last game, maybe Motte?

 

It is just a strange time for a planned callup, 11:30 PM PT, 2:30 AM ET.

More like an hour and a bit after the game.

 

Injury or illness?

My father loved that word.  He'd pronounce it 'horse doovers'.  You can take the boy out of the Caribou, but not the Caribou out of the boy.

Heard the same.

 

It happened when he woke up in Colorado. Perhaps the altitude made symptoms resurface.

unless you have a free roster spot, which they almost never do, they can't bring anyone up for a "reward"
