  1. Three point night for Rathbone, including a primary assist on the PP and the game tying goal: This gets him to 22 points in 21 games. He had 22 points in 32 games last season — Harvard plays again tomorrow, could set a career high.

  2. Don't let the slow fade of the back half of Probert's career fool you. In the 1987-88 season, a 22 year-old Probert scored 29 goals and 62 points in 74 games, despite also earning 398 penalty minutes. He made the All-Star team that year. And in 1991-92 he scored 20 goals and 44 points in only 63 games, and even got a Selke vote. Basically up until he hit 30, Probert was a solid producer, in addition to being the fiercest enforcer in the game.

  3. Ha, funny...I'd been going through the gallery (as I tend to do after games) and had seen that pic. A few more that really demonstrate his level of intensity/compete:

  5. Gaudette is in his 1st full NHL season and is scoring at + 0.50 ppg. Most of the season at center. At 24 fans should be very happy with his season. I love his drives down the middle. What he is learning this year will really manifest next year. I seriously respect Green's development of this kid as he could have moved him to the wing and put Sutter back at 3C, he hasn't. The center position with the Canucks is extremely strong.

  6. Around Christmas during a game I quoted how oddly enough Guadettes stature and prowess reminds me of the late Bob Probert.. Guadette is Obviously a better all around player than BP.. and a different era.. But to watch him go against Mu4phy,. perhaps a little affirmation. Next Season for Adam is going to have us tossing hats for goals and Gordie Howe Hat Tricks.. Perhaps a few hats should be tossed for a JB too. Glad to see Adam cut his knuckles on Wed night.. that’s a big confidence booster to tilt in the Bigs. Im interested to see him grow it into Sunday’s game.. watch

  10. The hi-lites of the Twins last game were a stark reminder of all the changes that Benning has done from that group 2 1/2 years ago. Wow. It looked like 2/3's of that roster are gone. If nothing else this year has shown that the biggest need on the current roster is on the d-side. Regular games with +35 shots on goal will mean a quick exit from playoffs this year if they make it. The Canucks making playoffs is what I expect. I do not expect them to go much further than the 1st round. Anything more is a huge bonus. Playoffs this year is all about exposure and development. Perhaps weaknesses will

  11. The only replacements I’d like to see are through internal promotion - unless there is some equivalent of the Miller trade - where we get a younger guy that is ready to blossom into a new role up the lineup.

  12. One of the toughest things in building a winner is how to replace a guy that is playing well, and giving everything to the team - like Stetcher. I really like Stetcher's effort, I think he works as harder or harder than anyone on this hard-working team. Stetcher has done nothing to deserve being moved and he has also been very durable. Sometimes coaches and managers take advantage of injuries, which may give an up and comer the chance he has been waiting for to prove that he is ready to take someone's job. The last twenty games and the playoffs will surely test the team's depth - maybe that

  13. Yeah, he had a different role last year. After the first few games they moved him off of Fox's unit to the shut down unit, and he played most of the year there. This year he is first unit all the time, best I can tell.

  14. DiPietro does his best Marky impression, stops 39 of 42 tonight for 0.929 SV% while Comets got outshot 42 to 21. It's his fourth consecutive start to boot.

  15. I Seriously thought after that scrap on Wednesday that Adam should be now called SideShowGaud. Look at that mop!

  16. For a while I’ve thought his impact on our team might end up being similar to what Patrick Sharp’s was for the Blackhawks when they were at their peak... not the guy who gets talked about a ton but a huge contributor.... if Gaudette starts busting the knuckles more often I might have to try and find a different comparison lol.

  17. As much as I may agree play in our own end could improve, and our D core is still a work in progress, SOG #'s don't always tell the whole story. I'll gladly give up 3 shots from the perimeter vs 2 shots in the slot all day, any day, for example. I believe that's where we're headed (if currently imperfect at times due to both quality and experience of personnel - both F and D).

  18. Rafferty is definitely not the Bieksa style - think decently sized, excellent skater, slick puck handler, clever strategic player.

  19. Kassian kick on Cernak is one of the most dangerous things I've ever seen in sports. I hope he is suspended 10+ games. That is extremely &^@#ing dangerous. A skate blade to chest of ALL places. And he talks about the code and dirty cheapshots. He lost whatever respect I had left for him. What a &^@#ing goof.

  20. Despite the fact he’s not great on face offs I don’t think Gaudette gets enough credit. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to think he could top out as a 60+ point player.

  21. Over the past week I’ve been fortunate to see both Rathbone and Woo play in glorious HD on my 55” TV. I’ve always been one to try to keep my expectations in check somewhat....but saying that, both of these guys REALLY impressed me. Differently styles, Jack more offensively orientated while Woo looks to be a future eraser on the defensive end. Loved how Rathbone really drove play. I’m not up to date on Jack’s plans to turn pro if those have come to light recently....but from what I see I say.....young man, GET THEE TO UTICA! In the Harvard-Northeastern game I thought Rathbone outsho

  23. That's right, San Jose was trying to clear cap space for Heatley, who they got a couple weeks later. However, the deal wasn't exactly two busts for Ehrhoff. No one cared about Patrick White -- by 2009 it was clear he was a pretty mediocre prospect. However, because he was a first round pick, the team who owned his rights get a compensatory second round pick if they don't sign him. That was the real value of the trade to the Sharks. They got to dump Lukowich (who was on his way out of the NHL), and receive a second round pick for Ehrhoff. Rahimi was probably just there to make the contrac
