  1. 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).

  2. 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

  3. Benning stinks, he is overpaying or bottom 6 again. How can our 3rd line center be making north of $7 million per?

  6. Yes. That's part of the coaches job so get that...these panels of players though. When did that start and why? If our media wasn't so inflammatory it wouldn't bug me either, actually makes me pine for the days Friedman was cutting his teeth (and down right awful for awhile anyways), because at least his questions although out there and often had little to do with anything going on, where safe and not loaded. No wonder the players like him and he became hockey's biggest insider. He wasn't an a-hole 25-75% of the time. Brian Burke did a great job of keeping the media honest. As did Pat Quin before him. Torts lol....in NYR had a running fued with one reporter even offering to kick his ass in an alley/fight him. Reporter said sure - Torts re-torted he wasn't worth his time given "you probably got beat every day in school for your lunch money and I it wouldn't be a fair fight" or something. Some of this is media gold, but when you read that players don't want to be in Canada because of high taxes and bad brutal media markets....maybe it's time that teams scaled it down. 20-30 seconds Between periods and after games same thing with one of the three stars and that's it. And get rid of the panels except for maybe after a playoff series is over or something.

  7. Make the $2 mill count against the cap, next season, otherwise it is pocket change to the owners.

  8. Disregard my last post. I like this lineup. Get Petey going and really spread on the offence. Petey could thrive with two guys who will forecheck and battle for pucks. So pumped for tonight!!!!!

  10. Aww poor Podkolzin. Just hating life. He's probably going to demand a trade after that evil Mr. Green didn't play him the last 2 games.

  11. Love the genuine happiness from Podz. Much better than a sulking prospect who was scratched.

  12. Frankie Corrado, the guy that played 46 games in the following six seasons in the nhl. Not sure this is the guy to criticize Benning about.

  14. Our media : "Ok EP explain how you suck lately?" "Ok EP now that we have an idea of how you've sucked lately is it important to 'unsuck' yourself?" "Do you mentally suck more or physically suck more?"

  15. I actually wish the Vancouver media would put some tough questions to Green about his pet players once in awhile. Still waiting for someone to ask him how he justifies putting Dowling on the PP over Podkolzin.

  17. It should count against the cap for 10 years, same amount of time the &^@#ers got away with it. And they should forfeit 5 years of 1st round picks too.

  18. Glad to see that Pettersson stopped reading articles. Hopefully the majority of players on the team do the same.

  19. Man this pisses me off. Why wouldn't he just be honest for the sake of human kind. If anyone is going to get blacklisted, it's NOT him. Another NHL team would gladly take him off the Hawks hands if it went that far. The few whistleblowers are beauties. Where there is smoke there is fire. I love it when people have the guts to stand up powerful execs. Being silent is being equally as guilty as the perpetrator.

  20. He got his 100th AHL goal a few days ago, so this is a nice reward for him to get called up to the big roster.

  21. I think Pettersson hits the scoresheet tonight. I'll say 2 points, one an assist on a Boeser goal. And again I'm really hoping Podkolzin gets in, the kid needs to play (and I enjoy watching him).

  22. When do people (all people) collectively stand up and reject this type of mean spirited crap? Do we wait until he sends one to the widower and his kid?

  24. @-Moose: I noticed you’re giving out paper bags to those that predict the opponent to win. This is simply a prediction contest, not the team you’re rooting for.

  28. I said Garland. But Poolman might be the biggest steal. RHD. $2.5 Million for 4 years. A steady d-man, and actually shoots.

  29. Well for one none of us are privy to what goes on in practice and behind closed doors. And one could counter, it was Travis Green that fixed our PP, which was awful for years, by adding Brock Boeser (a rookie with a lethal shot i'm sure he saw during practice) to it. Really who wasn't bored of the washing machine cycle spin game the Sedins endlessly did by then? The league figured us out in 2011. Took note, and it went from the number one PP to ... well by then 23rd. By the time Brock Boeser got injured, it went all the way up to 9th. It's not like Travis Green doesn't have the willingness to actually play these guys. What he won't do, is play them if he doesn't think they are ready. He's trying to win a Stanley Cup. At least he freaking better be. As another poster pointed out, Dowling wins face offs. I'm sure, just like all of JVs 312ish NHL games, Podz will get a ton of chances given his draft slot. Guys like Hogs, Motte and even Adam Gaudette have to really work for it. Not like the early first rounders don't too, but they get a distinct advantage for being better at a younger age. Wouldn't read too much into it, the season has barely started. Just like Brock Boeser's rookie season...he wasn't on the first power play unit right away, and if he's going to bump a vet...then he needs to earn it as well.

  30. You dont care about other teams drafting but you want to see Benning draft perfectly in each round? Seems unrealistic as GM's drafting success is measured relative to its peers. He drafted Petersson, Boeser, Mccann, Forsling, Podkolzin, Hoglander, Hughes, Rathbone, Gadjovic, Tryamkin, Demko, Dipietro etc. Now there were 2 or 3 busts but those are lots of good players drafted eventhough he always was drafting outside of top 5 and usually had 5 or 6 picks max every year and some years as low as 4 draft picks. Add those up and if Canucks had 10 picks like some other bottom feedimg teams, he would have drafted even more gems. Also add to that the fact some of his drafted players were traded too soon like Forsling and Mccann or didnt come back like Tryamkin. A couple of those mishaps go our way and we would have a much better team than what we have now, adding Forsling and Tryamkin to that D which has OEL, Hughes and Rathbone.

  31. Now do it for all 30 other teams and see how well they did and then compare. That's how you get your answer. Do your own research.

  32. Prolly 'cos Dowling takes faceoffs. In fact, his 57.1% winning % is best on the team with Bo the only other center over 50% (at 54.7%) Ah, I can almost hear you saying. Small sample, just 14 faceoffs taken Yes, but 10 of the 14 were second unit powerplay, and that's second only to Horvat's 31 on PP faceoffs, but Bo averages 4.14 mins PP per game, Dowling 1.2 mins That's why Dowling plays on the 2nd Powerplay and Podkolzin doesn't. Reporters don't need to ask - they access the same statistics as I did

  33. I don’t think so. Using a top 10 pick to acquire a goaltender is basically unheard of. That being said, I do remember feeling like we should have gotten more at the time… I think it was close to a fair deal.

  35. We can always remember him as he was, a top flight goaltender with a great personality playing behind a top flight goaltender with a great personality. Man were we ever stacked, I miss those days.
