So when it doesn’t play out as you predicted you will throw yourself on your sword in the PGT?

Guaranteed 

 

And if it does?

Again, your opinion on the 2 bad games, includes a W! So probably wasn't as "BAD" as you are suggesting. I also remember some great saves from those games as well so it wasn't like he was a total disaster. The3rd game hasn't even been played yet.:lol:

He is 24 years old and has 32 NHL games under his belt. Do other teams have a back up like that as well? :rolleyes:

Just off top of my head,

 

Georgiev in NYR.  just turned 24 yrs old, recently took over as #1 in NYR.  Around 40 NHL games before this year.

Jarry in PIT 24 yrs old, took over as #1 has been great as starter. 29 games under his belt when he took over as starter..

 

Likely more but I don't see why that matters so not going to search. Is it about age?

 

Hart in Philly is 21 yrs old, starter and very solid. I'm not sure what that has to do with Demko though.

Wow folks! This thread is already more negative than the average post-loss PGT and the game is still hours away! 

 

Pull yourselves together you debbie downers and cheer for our damn team! 

 

This is is the first time we even have a real shot at the playoffs in years and I for one am loving the chance to see our guys learn to face some adversity and rise to the occasion. Obviously I will be sorry if they don’t make it but we aren’t there yet!

While there are some seriously pessimistic posts, quite a lot are realistic posts about the team. I don’t get a sense that anyone on here doesn’t want the team to succeed. 
 

It is somewhat annoying to be told how to be a fan too.

Surprised no changes at all but this line up has proven themselves as well.  Just better not come out looking flat again.  Gotta win this B2B!

Take it to these Laffs and don’t let up. If the Canucks can beat down Boston like they did, handling these Laffs should be possible.

Vegas keep winning, we have games in hand but need to keep up to maintain home ice during the first couple of rounds, so surprisingly big game. Our defence is going to have its hands full so need to bounce back.

 

4-3 Canucks in OT

They won't take a 4th liner Shmoe to pass on Demko. It'll be a heavy cost. just like it was for teams during Vegas expansion draft.

 

MIN gave up Alex Tuch for VGK to pass on a player, Lots of high picks also went to Vegas for passing on certain players. They took in a big haul and built a SCF team in first year.

Was thinking DiPietro and a smaller add for them to pass but it will depend on what they are looking for.

The Leafs have the 26th worst PK in the league.  Nucks need to get shots shots shots during their PPs.

Or just win because I like to listen to the PGT podcast on my walk home from work- so much more enjoyable with the W!

 

Plus with how well everyone is doing in the Pacific I'm getting a little nervous haha

Can't have both Rous and LE on same line as a young Gaudette. If Rous was playing well right now then ya maybe. But that line would have a hard time against Leafs speedy and skilled top 2 lines.

 

 

Don't forget Leafs get last line change on home ice. So they get to match lines.

Heard you the first time.  Feel free to  stay away if the team loses.  It's not likely you will be missed.

People who want the team to succeed shouldn't be constantly negative / ignorant in regards to all aspects of the team, even when things are going well!!! Also, there's a big difference between realist / what i just mentioned. People like myself and the other poster aren't trying to tell people how to be fans, we're just tired of the constant underlying negativity from some so called fans when there's absolutely no reason for it. It's called balance, not the glass is always half empty no matter what!!

Wow, totally missed the point. 

Your expectations are that Demko should be playing at a certain level, like other Back Up Goalies in the NHL. I was simply pointing out that he is still young and developing.

We'll see. 

Are you saying give them DiPietro + another small add to take a different roster player? That could interest Seattle. Maybe DiPietro plus a 3rd round pick and they take a healthy Ferland with 70  games played next season..

 

Too many variables. We'll see what happens in summer.

Ya, the problem is Demko won't make it past Seattle. They'll take him if exposed.

 

Yes on locking up Clark, his contract is up at the end of this season. As well as Judd Brackett's. Both are very important parts of the team and need to be locked up asap..

Demko will be okay for next season he just has to adjust to being the starter suddenly. If Markstrom is resolved and he stays then Demko would be selected even if it was just to traded.

 

I don't think any of the top management people, the really important one's have had their contracts renewed and most expire at the end of this season, including Green's. Benning was the only guy that got another 2 + 1 contract and that IMO was so he could still operate and not be a "lame duck" GM.

At the end of this season it will almost be a clean slate of re-signing, retaining or other decisions.

 

What does it mean when just about all the management people and all of the players have not had their contracts renewed?
