  1. Tomorrow's my 30th birthday and I'm going to the game with two of my best pals! SO STOKED! Gonna try and make it down in time to watch the warmups which I've never been able to do before (of course my new job is sending me on site visits tomorrow but I should be able to leave work early). I will start one chant (Go Canucks Go or otherwise) from the Larscheiders fan section for every upvote this gets. Mods you should probably pin this post

  5. This team will never be more than a 500 team under Green. He’s the wrong guy for the job.

  6. Poolman was a beauty the last 2 mins. Great game. Much better team with Hughes in the lineup

  7. It was a bit surprising to see Green use the same lines in practice yesterday. The one lineup change I would make is putting Burroughs in for Schenn. I don’t think Burroughs should have been scratched in the first place, as he was playing well.

  9. Benning should be arrested and locked up for the biggest theft in Canucks history… Thank you Benning for Garland and OEL…

  10. Anyone who still uses a bag skate to evaluate players needs to go back to the AHL. As far as the personnel on this team, Benning has assembled one of the better teams on paper since 2012. It's not his fault Sutter is sick and Hamonic refused to show up. Those are two pieces that really could have helped that we thought were coming. Most likely we waived Gadjovich and MacEwen because of Green, so we lost our only 2 tough guys because Green wanted to play his AHL fodder that obey his every command. This is NOT on Benning at all. This team with the right coach is an easy playoff team, even without Sutter and Hamonic. The problem is the guy behind the bench. It's so obvious even a blind mouse can figure it out.

J.T. Miller: Despite indifferent play at times, has managed to produce 6 points over the past five games! Who's Not: Elias Pettersson: Although he has produced at a 0.6 Points per game rate since the start of the season, it is clear he's still shaking off 8 months of rust following his UBI in 2021.

Brock Boeser: After scoring his first goal last game against the Blackhawks, watch for Boeser to pad his stats against a struggling Grubauer!

  12. OEL's value is far greater than the stat sheet, he allows Hughes to be Hughes.

  13. They should. He has every right to voice his opinion on his comedy special. The Closer was awesome. Those that want Chappelle cancelled and Netflix punished need to get a life and stop trying to alter society to their needs and wants. Not everyone has to agree with everything everyone does. Those who demand as much need to (expletive deleted) right off.

  14. Where: Rogers Arena, Vancouver, BCWhen: Oct.26th, 2021 @ 7:00pm PDTTV: Sportsnet OneRadio: SN650 / CFAX1070 I'm no good with lineups before they are announced. Instead, I will just go with my favourite fan created season opener pump up video. This one comes from the 2010-11 season, which was pretty much the greatest season in team history. Enjoy.

  15. The amount of complaining about Miller is astounding to me. He's our top point producer, physical, and can take faceoffs all for a cap hit of 5.5 mil (basically 2nd line money).

  16. To be fair to Hirsch. I think he's needing support from people. And he just might be his inner thoughts bubbling out. He's sort of self abusing, but looking for support all at the same time. The fact he's open about it, takes a lot of courage. Not many people can admit to things like depression and OCD, especially on a TV broadcast. As was pointed out, he needs to learn to keep quiet at times. But if it helps his mental state I'll put up with a bit of awkwardness if he feels better in the long run. How many people have mental health issues, and still go into broadcasting? You can't deny he certainly loves the sport.

  17. Not satisfied with how we played. Garland and Demko stole the show. Petey needs to wake up.

  18. No. This is so dumb, I'm so sick of hearing it. The "blue and green are too passive" idea is middle schooler psychology that lead to us having the flying V's. The Canucks have a beautiful, fitting, unique colour scheme and they need to actually stick with it rather than switch to a generic Pittsburgh/Boston/Vegas/Calgary knock off. The "intimidation" idea is so dumb. No grown man being paid millions of dollars to play a game is going to be scared by what the opposition is wearing. Otherwise Pittsburgh would have been a dumpster fire the past 15 years and the Panthers would have 12 cups because Panthers are more intimidating than Penguins. Tampa is a garbage team because blue and white is too calm of a colour scheme. While we're at it lets change the name of the team to "Super Killer Death Whales" to really make our opponents shake in their boots. I guarantee you that if we went back to the skate colours, within ~5 years everybody would be clamouring for blue and green to come back because its always grass-is-greenerism. I remember back in 2007 when the team started wearing the stick-in-rink as thirds, everybody wanted the team to go back to blue and green, the Germany colours were an afterthought. The Skate jerseys were a fun throwback, and they'd be fine as a third, but thats it. This team needs to build a consistent identity around a consistent look, not switch it around every few years because the fans inexplicably seem think changing back to a jersey they never won in will help them win.

  20. Morning all! First things first, this isn't a shame thread or a holier than thou rant. I intend this to be a legitimate dialogue based off what I have noticed this year on Canucks socials and even on this forum. I could be totally in the wrong, a complete homer, and that clouds my judgement a little (wouldn't be the first time, cough Jake Virtanen cough). But I feel like based off how this season has gone so far, people tend to be overly negative about the start, that I just don't see. Elephant in the room, Benning in my opinion has made some major mistakes recently. I don't want this thread to become a Benning bashing corner based off past mistakes, though I do understand that some of the negativity around the team goes hand in hand with Bennings past faults. I do recognize his faults though, and both Gadjovich and Juolevi were major miss plays, in my opinion. But this team just went 3-2-1 on a 6 game road trip to start the season, with multiple season openers. In my opinion that was an outstanding start to the season. Furthermore we did that without 2/3 of our 4th line, a top 4 D, all 3 being our best penalty killers, a few games without our best winger, and let's be honest did it all without our 'best player' being our best player. This team is finding a way to win games that we shouldn't really be winning. Once we start rolling this team has all the potential in the world. I guess my question is this, and I would love to talk to people who don't see eye to eye with me. Is the current makeup of the organization, Travis, Jim, the players, really not good enough in the current day? Or are people just upset over the multiple mistakes made over the years and just fed up. Because I look at this offseason as a net win, brining in Garland, OEL, and making some other good moves. This team looks better to me right now that it has in many years and I honestly think we are trending in the right direction. (I apologize for spelling errors, I have dyslexia and often have to edit my posts multiple times to iron out all my oversights when I write something, and will do so over the day)

  22. Canucks Flying Skate Jersey Could be Making a Comeback YES PLEASE. The team has always looked a lot meaner in the black red yellow and white colours. Hughes looks bigger. Horvat looks bigger. It’s a don’t F with us colour combo. Tree-hugging colours don’t win Cups. I’m all for it.

  23. Great win but I hope Podkolzin is put back into the lineup. Sitting him doesn’t do anything for his confidence or development. Will they put him in any time soon?

  24. Gee, at the end of a 6 game road trip, all season openers, and a fricking franchise opener last night, they looked tired? what a shock. The fact that our guys battled hard enough to stay in it should be applauded, but of course you are finding ways to complain. Great character shown by our guys to not collapse and give up.

  26. Have to say Garland has been my favourite player so far this early season. Leads the team in points. Doesn’t take a shift off, pisses off the opposition, slippery along the boards, creates offence, seems reasonable in his own end. Really have nothing to bad say at all.

  27. The result we are looking for: 1. Fire Benning and Weisbrod 2. Fire Green and Baumgartner 3. Stop being cheap on your front office and coaching and hire quality, experienced people. This team needs a new &^@#ing voice and direction. Until then, stop tweeting Frankie
