Players dont hit as much these days? Did you not see Pettersson get hit/slashed/tripped a dozen times over the past 2 games? And what about the playoffs? A team like Winnipeg or Boston would be on him like flies on hot sh yt. People with dreams of making the playoffs better wake up to the reality that Hughes and Petey and Boeser and the like are going to be huge targets, these past 2 games are but a small serving size of what will come.

Sorry but I think that’s just a little exaggerated. Other than that cheap cross check Backlund early in the game everything I saw tonight was standard game with in the game stuff. Skilled players have been targeting this game forever and not always protected a lot of them have put a protect themselves. If you want to play in the pros you Gotta be able to rise above that.

I agree the game is moving away from that. But you still need someone willing to say enough is enough. 

 

I think someone earlier made a great point saying that this is only a preview of what the playoffs will be like for EP & our young guys. The game isn't enforcers anymore, but you do need some strength & some guys willing to battle for each other. 

Agreed and that’s why I am all for a Simmons type acquisition at the deadline. But really when you sign guys like Myers Pearson Beagle Schaller Sutter etc. you know what you’re getting. I just don’t understand why management continues to sign tweeners and hope these guys are going to Into the kind of players we are referring to.

Sorry its not how it works intimidation is still a factor in the NHL. Power play is a deterrent some what but only if its effective sometimes you need a good old fashion two handed slash on the perpetrator then a elbow to the head to be left alone . Skate buy their bench and say your stars are next.

Would he have fought if it wasn't Miller? 

Nope.

 

If he's out on the faceoffs and giving EP40 shots, what would Miller do? 

I think he did what he had to do. 

 

Dude... Tkturtle goaded him into a fight at the absolute PERFECT time for Calgary.

I love JT but he's gotta think for 2 seconds there..

Would have been even worse had it not been for Marky 

 

still think Green is our guy people?
 

no system, no defensive discipline. Not prepared at all. 
 

Green is not the coach that will take this team to the next level nor even round 1 

 

that was a shameful game 

 

and again a tiny guy like Backlund takes cheapshots all game and we do zip

LOL when your defensive structure looks the exact same without a goaltender as it does with a goaltender! 

Couldn’t of said it better. I’ve been criticizing this all year long and that includes the winning streak. It’s going to bite us in the ass.....I mean it already has.

Canuck fans are pissed off that our young stars continue to be abused.

 

Why should they relax???  Because you say so?

 

No....Canuck fans should be pissed off because Petey continues to get abused and the team think never changes from turn the other cheek crap to defend our own!!

 

:picard:

Petey has to toughen up bud. He is starting to come across as a little whiney now. If he gets that label players will tee off on him left right and center. He is still young and underdeveloped physically. Not quite  built like a pro player yet. He’ll get there but he answer to this test right now and continue to evolve as a player. He can’t expect this team to start abandoning structure and taking stupid penalties because he is taking the odd hack and slash. Such a big deal being made over that hit the other night. He made a pass and admired it. It wasn’t  open house or blindsided. Yes it was late probably deserved a penalty but I didn’t see it as a malicious play at all. Granted this team seriously lacks tough attitude and identity. But the players on this team just aren’t like that.

Biggest disappointment is the team not standing up for Petey. 

Guy busts his butt for this team and carries them on his back yet plugs like Sutter and Schaller could not care one bit 

 

Cant wait to see Coach Ghandi being shown the door

Ahh the fire green comments are back

 

Buts it's no surprise we lose if we can't score 5 plus goals for this team. We can't play defense since the start of the season. We rely on Marky too much. 

 

Honestly if we gotta fire someone fire the assistants. Get someone with more experience to help
