  1. Things move pretty fast in Canuckland during preseason. Three goals on 21 shots in two periods, and Demko goes from blue chipper to bust, at least in some fans’ minds. It’s the same for every Canucks player, and many of the comments in the PGTs can attest to this. I’m sure Demko will be fine. Also, it’s worth noting that all the goalies apparently received detailed technical packages from Ian Clark and are working on various adjustments. Demko, for example, has, among other things, reportedly been studying a 40 clip video pack that Clark put together just from his one N

  2. I don't believe Demko has stalled. He is continuing to develop but the problem is for Vancouver fans that don't see him play every game the AHL stats make him appear to be NHL ready which I don't believe is the case. He is close but not there yet. He has technical issues that are fixable but take time to fix. He was much better last season than he was the season before and I expect that progress to continue. The correct development plan IMHO is the #1 starter in Utica with a handful of NHL games on occasional call ups this season. He will be a better goalie one year from now when Nilsson

  3. Especially for their first game in about 4 months, DiPietro has a LONG way to go to get to the level that Demko is currently at

  6. For sure. I meant more that he will eventually be an NHLer. Only one year pro for him so far. Agreed there is no rush.

  7. He is developing into a bonafide NHL'er but I would rather see him get tons of ice time in the "A" rather than limited ice time in Van. I think that is better for his overall development.

  8. I agree with both these points. Still was disappointed he was sent down so soon. I know it speaks somewhat to the LHD depth vs RHD but Chatfield is one player who is still up I feel GB is ahead of.

  9. Who other than people who have not a clue about goaltending at an elite level are discussing him having "technical issues?". Ian Clark, arguably the best goalie coach in hockey, raves about Demko's technical make up saying his fundamentals are "off the charts" good let alone for young guy. Why invent things that aren't true?

  10. i agree with this. also i want to see Gaudette play a game or two with established NHL vets so that we can judge how he plays in a structured environment. that game against the lames hacks was like pond shinny...not sure how much we can take away from that...

  11. I thought Gaudette played very well, and seemed to fit right in. He was tenacious, battling, had a few chances, and he's got real good speed and size. He's also defensively responsible and coaches love that. Was he great in his one game? No, but I don't think any Canucks players have been great yet.

  12. I don't want Demko sitting on the bench in Vancouver. I'd rather he be Utica's starter this season and gain one more year of development.

  13. Demko was arguably the best goalie in the ahl lol, I wouldn't say he's stalled whatsoever. This is the preseason, it's literally the toughest for goalies to get into it. Give it some time.

  14. The kid is carrying on from his strong performance in Penticton. He is on track to becoming an NHLer which looks like another successful pick by GMJB.

  15. Been high on this guy since he was drafted, can't wait to see what he does in Utica this year. Quietly had a great year last year and has looked solid in preseason.

  17. Thought Brisebois played a very sound two way game against a very heavy team in LA. Real steady and made some real simply but quick up ice passes to start the transition quickly. I think we will see him sooner rather than later.

  18. One game is not enough. If he isnt ready, play him in Utica and develop him. Anything above that would be surpassing expectations. Nothing Disapointing about it. Sutter should be looking better than a rookie.
