#12738251 Michael Ferland and The Flames

Posted by spook007 on 20 April 2015 - 04:36 PM


IMO, the opportunity presented itself, it had to be done, it was done...end of story.
Or perhaps this would be better. "Excuse me Mr. Ferland, I know you have been running around with reckless abandon on my teammates and I hate to take any of your time away from that,but when you get a moment, would you mind moving to center ice and removing your gloves, so we can engage physically?"

Just stop it.

This... Don't give a crap about what Bieksa should have done. He nailed him and let him know that the would be more where they were coming from. Time to let him look over his shoulder.

Great game.

Don't get why so many worry about what Lames fans says on their boards. They are butt hurt and its brilliant. Sit back and enjoying their misery. :)

Keep this intensity up and it'll be Canucks in 5 or 6. :towel:

#12725886 [PGT] Flames @ Canucks | Flames lead series 1-0

Posted by spook007 on 16 April 2015 - 02:21 AM

If there is one thing that I've learned in the 12 years I've been watching the Canucks it's that many Vancouverites are overly pessimistic when it comes to their teams. It's a best of 7 series for a reason. Now man up and support them instead of preaching about how it's over already.

This is so true of Canucks fans..... C'mon now, stand up to be counted instead of acting like kids, throwing there favourite toys in the bin cause it doesn't go their way. 

Tight game with chances both ends... Canucks nowhere near as bad as some of these posts states.

Onwards and upwards...

#12690482 Report Card on Benning

Posted by spook007 on 31 March 2015 - 06:40 AM

Mike gillis report card

Good transactions:

Torres 1yr 1M: 90%
Ehroff trade: 100%
Kesler contract: 100%
Tanev contract: 95%
Hamhuis signing: 80% (Hamhuis just wanted to play in BC)
Glass 1yr 625k: 90%
Schneider trade: 95% (now)
Higgins trade: 95%
Lappiere trade: 90%
Weiss claim: 80%

Bad transactions:

Traded away Bernier, Grabner, 2010 1st for Ballard and Oreskovich: 0%
Luongo contract 12yr 64M: 60%
Bieksa NTC: 65%
Ehroff trade: 20%
Booth trade: 50%
Hodgson trade: 45%
Garrison signing: 70%
Burrows NTC: 45% (NTC+big cap hit)
Derek roy trade: 45%
AV firing (not tortorella hiring): 0%
Schnieder trade: 50% (at the time of the trade)
Luongo trade: 0%

Good draft picks:


When you consider what other teams have gotten through the drafts this is a poor set of prospect. Horvat is the only one proving to be a great player, Hodgson would have, head he not been traded to Buffalo. Since then he had one good season and has since played below average.

Draft score: 65% (his last draft year 85-90%)

Overall grade: someone want to do the math?

Jim Benning report card

Good transactions:

Kesler trade: 90%
WD signing: 100%
Dorsett signing: 95%
Garrison for vey: 80%
Clendenning trade: 85%
Miller signing: 90%
Vrbata signing: 100%
Baertschi trade: 95%

Bad transactions:

McMillan claim: 65%

Good draft picks:




Draft score: 95%

Overall grade: want to do the math?

Maybe just a bit early to compare MG and JB, bearing in mind Gillis is over a six year period, and Benning is only 10 months.


However JB found us a goal scorer (tick),

Got a veteran goal keeper, until lack showed he can be a no.1 (tick), 

Got something for Kesler, Which could turn into gold, although his hands were tied...(Tick)

Got a coach, who got most of the old guards going again (tick) 

Has started the youth movement (tick)

Drafted decent (an eye towards size in the backend) (tick)

And mostly having the balls not to join the mass hysteria shown on CDC, to clear all decks of everyone bar the ticket office personal (actually including the  ticket office personal). He may yet get rid of some of the old guard in the summer, but the value will definitely be more favourable now than during last summer (tick)


All in all good start to his tenure. Long may it continue

Posted by spook007 on 19 March 2015 - 03:56 AM


I don't understand why the NHL doesn't just use Winning Percentages just like in the NBA then use ROW as the tie breaker. If the league did that this would be the standings right now


STL 64.29
ANH 62.50
CHI 61.43
VAN 57.97
NSH 56.72
MIN 55.71
CGY 54.29
WPG 50.00


LAK 48.57
SJS 48.57

3 Canadian teams in, Canucks 4th seed, and LAK and SJS out.

Guess you answered you own question... 3 Canadian teams in and LAK and SJS out  :)

#12664475 [Report] Ryan Miller wont' skate for another 3 weeks

Posted by spook007 on 18 March 2015 - 03:56 PM

One good thing is the value of Lack is heading north for every game he plays at the moment. If the organization decides to deal a goalkeeper during summer, he would be a lot more valuable than a bench warmer.

He has certainly quietened a lot of doubters with his play in Millers absence.

Posted by spook007 on 15 March 2015 - 04:03 AM

Where can I sign up for the Toni Zamboni fanclub?  I'm telling you, those GIFS are giving the actual wins a good run for their money.



Bang on...  :rolleyes:

Tears of laughter... Zamboni and Makaveli96 makes life better ::D ... Keep it up please. Brilliant +1

#12658638 Jannik Hansen + (Horvat and Kenins)

Posted by spook007 on 15 March 2015 - 03:14 AM


Look all I'm saying is in big games he becomes unoticed way too often. Recall the infamous empty net he missed in game 2 against sanjose, which lead to Sanjose tying it. He does this way too often for me to jump his wagon. Recall his previous games against LA and Nashville this year, he went invisible. Please watch him in big games that have more meaning behind them, you will most likely see what I'm saying. Games to watch him in: Nashville, LA, St louis and Dallas. Watch him with a scope and than you will see what I'm talking about. 

You're totally out to lunch here mate... 68 games played and you moan over a 4th liner (14-16-30... almost scoring at .5 per game) for not turning up in like 4 games or maybe a few more??? Your hate makes you pathetic...  :sadno:


To the OP... Great post. This line is turning into the success story of the season. If it hadn't been for Kassian taking great strides, it would be the main topic.

Posted by spook007 on 11 March 2015 - 01:20 PM

My dream:
LvG is sacked after we finish 4th.
We hire Pep or Ancelotti.
Sell AdM and return Falcao
Get some real game breakers
Ronaldo comes back
Hummels signs
De Gea signs an extension
Januzaj starts to reach his potential
We sign Pogba
Sign a RB like Clyne or keep Rafael
Sell the useless junk we brought in (Fellaini, Mata, etc.)
And than:
De Gea

...and than I woke up.

Hahaha lol +1

Don't care if they were lucky or not. 2-0 down against the goldfishes in their back garden, and come away with a 3-2 victory. You make your own luck I say... Way to go Nucks.


Onwards and upwards...
