In Topic: Jared McCann Talk

Lafleur used to leave a deck in the penalty box just in case.

over heard someone talking about Ryan Murray of the Columbus Blue Jackets


at the time when I heard this, (he was just drafted) couple dudes who actually played in the WHL said that he smokes a pack a day apparently.

In Topic: Ashley Madison hacked, personal information leaked

It's funny to see all the law enforcement agencies take action over this all of a sudden.
I'm willing to bet there's quite a few politicians and powerful people on this list that the cops will be ordered to protect.

I think it's more or less people's private information (such as credit card information) is also stolen

In Topic: Jake Virtanen Talk

Jake is a fast, physical sniper. How is that not what our team needs, regardless of his point totals? I really like Ehlers and Nylander, but if those guys aren't putting up points, they're useless. If Jake isn't putting up points, he's probably grinding the other team into the boards, getting in people's faces, and making our team more intimidating overall. He is EXACTLY what our team needs and has needed for a while now. You want soft skill, we have Baertschi, Shinkaruk, McCann. Bo and Jake have offensive upside, but they also open the ice up for our softies.

He's pretty much the prototype player Canuck fans,fantasize, about drafting.

A big power forward winger that hits, scores goals, and is a b.c boy. How,often do the Canucks have a chance to draft a player like that?

Virtannen is one the nastiest body slamming player I've personally seen since Dion Phaneuf from the 2005 world juniors.

Jake is obviously not the most offensive player on the table when benning was going up, but I truly believe, he was the best choice at number 6.

Nylander and ehlers, are question marks so far, but we have our ehlers in Sven baertchi, we also drafted a better player then them in boesser.

Virtanen still posted a point per game. Maybe not at a clip some wanted, but if he can be productive while being a physical force then we made a great pick. 





Andrew Ladd was way below a point per game , and this was a 20 year old Andrew Ladd in the Dub


heck even Ryan Getlaz in his final WHL year, was just a 54 point season in 50 games.

In Topic: [Signing] D Christian Ehrhoff signs 1 year deal with Kings

Wouldn't it made more sense to dump Weber, and take a chance on Hoff for $1.5 million?


it could have been.


"We have no interest in Christian.  We wish him the best of luck."
