  1. I don't know if many coaches call out Junior players cause I haven't heard it before, but I'm guessing if Sutter is calling out Gaunce he thinks that there's more for Gaunce to contribute. I tend to think that Gaunce is one of the better players in the OHL and he still has a ton of room to improve. He has so much potential with his size, strength, hockey IQ, shot, passing ability, etc, but he seems to still have so much room to develop. Stoked for him to get a chance at the mem cup this year with Erie.

  6. This is one of those threads where one or two people who evidently have very little clue of what they're saying, post something and it's parroted by a gaggle of other posters who have no idea what type of player Erat is. The guy is a very good skater - has very powerful first couple strides - great vision and hockeys sense - terrific hands and is an elite passer. The guy has consistently produced 30 to 40 assists - playing with Nashville's forward group! - has had solid underlying numbers, facing strong competition, getting 40-45% offensive zone starts, always produces higher ozone finishes

  7. Your argument is childish. Why are the forwards commended for doing "soooooo" many things right and ???? up at the end but Luongo gets ragged on not saving a bang bang play two feet outside the crease top cheddar. These aren't weak, typical Luongo goals he's been letting in so far this season. They've been horrid breakdowns defensively leading to Grade A scoring chances that most teams WOULD fill the net with. Luongo has been making the SAVES HE NEEDS TO MAKE. Now let's the team score the GOALS THEY NEED TO SCORE.

  8. I bet he would actually surprise alot of people. Kind of like how Samuelsson did. I'd be willing to give him a shot. Honestly, can it really be any worse than with Booth?

  9. You're not going to last long on this board if you insist on using that stupid term in reference to the Sedins. You may or may not have made a point after the first sentence of the post, but I for one, will never know. I can't take a single thing you say seriously after such an ignorant comment.

  10. I never understood why Gaunce gets so underrated by people on here. I would rank him as one of our top three prospects behind only Horvat and Shinkaruk. But I think he has even more of a chance of being a regular NHler than Shinkaruk at this point.

  13. This team needs size and goal scoring in our top 6 not a 32 yr old has been playmaker. Just my opinion. Erat in the right setting has some productivity left. My feeling is he is not a good fit here. As for Nazzy I feel horrible I used him and Erat in the same sentence.

  15. Could you imagine in elementary school that some kids went trick or treating. They spent hours and got a lot of candy, but there were some others who stayed home even though they could have gone out and done their own trick or treating. And then the next at school they had to bring all their candy in, and their teachers took almost all the candy of the kids who actually worked for their candy and redistributed to the ones who contributed nothing. How is that fair? Kids know that radical redistribution is not fair.

  17. Sutter does realize Gaunce played on a crappy team and was their leading scorer right? (26Pts in 22GP) Yes his strong suit is his defensive game, but to say he doesn't have alot of offensive upside is wrong. He's got underrated passing and a great shot. Sutter must be sniffing glue.

  19. Talk to Aladeen since he was the most recent host. I'm sure he'll help out. Since this is your first game hosting, I'd consider making it easier on yourself by going with the standard roles. (Sheriff, Doctor, Vigilante, SK, TB, KP)

  20. He does stop hard goals, quite a bit actually, but you can't really expect any goalie to save 2 on 1's consistently, especially if the pass isn't taken away (he's actually stopped quite a few 2 on 1's and held us in a lot of games). Btw he is the 11th highest payed goaltender in the league, not third.

  23. LOL Sutter this guy... Did Gaunce bang his daughter and not call back or something? I don't know. It seems to me he's being unnecessarily harsh on one player. Or did he bash some other WJC hopeful prospects as well?

  28. This is great news! Not only does he get to play with one of the best young players in the world, he has a serious shot at a memorial cup. We've got 4 prospects with awesome chances to win the memorial cup now. Gaunce, Horvat, Shinkaruk, and Cederholm are all on great junior teams that should do some damage this season.

  29. our troubles are over Martin Erat..I cant wait,,jeez,,get a proven top six for fracks sake. Canucks just look at the reject pile and figure they can turn all these guys around, Washington waived him for a reason and he is going to be our saviour.

  30. Fwiw, the rumour comes from Lebrun, who in the same segment was trying to suggest that Carolina might be interested in taking Liles contract off the Laffs hands... Sounds like they're still pipe dreaming in Toronto. I'm not in the cap dump or pay (assets) to rid ourselves of Booth camp - but I wouldn't hesitate to deal him for Erat. I don't care about rumours about locker room dynamics - I don't imagine Booth's gawd talk is endearing him to many (the rumours were that Florida didn't appreciate it), so I'm hardly going to judge Erat on similar stories, many times removed, about him being

  31. This guy is already proving he is a bonafied WR 1. He has impressed me every snap. Beating KC was huge for the team morale. You are bang on with your defensive evaluation. I think SD is One good pass rusher and corner away from really shaking it up for their divisional opponents.

  32. Edler went from a player with so much promise 3 years ago, and the last 2.5 seasons, has played like complete garbage. We should have traded him in the offseason before his NTC kicked in....

  33. Edler cost us a win. Unless he somehow learns how to cover attackers in his own end, we need to get rid of him and just get whatever we can back. Sick of his incompetence defensively. Was great to see the team actually stand up for each other though. Loved the efforts from Weise and Stanton especially.

  34. our d core is vastly overrated and overpaid, especially Edler. I don't even know how people ever thought this guy would be a norris candidate with the hockey i.q. he has. .

  36. Booth had 60 points, 31 goals in 72 games. That doesn't happen by fluke it's injuries that have been his demise, If Booth is still a Canuck come next year and stays healthy enough to be able to train all off season he will score 30 goals or very close to it and put up 60+ points. Erat has no chance of doing that. I really can't believe how stupid Canuck fans are.

  37. What? Booth has WAY more upside than Erat. Booth has run into injuries give him a full off season to train and he could potentially be a 30 goal scorer and 60 point player again. Everyone seems to forget how Booth had surgery on his ankle and was unable to train this off season and have completely written him off. He is only 28 if he stays healthy the rest of the year and gets a full off season of training under his belt he will be WAY better than Erat. Trading for Erat would be a huge mistake he is awful. Does anyone not remember how he gave the puck away in the last 15 seconds in the play
