  2. Hoge all day! Hoge all night! Even before this season began, I think it was clear to the millions that Mr Jim Benning was already the land slide draft god of the NHL... but come on... did he really do it again?! Is this real? Are you kidding me?! It wasn't enough that he somehow managed to win the 2017 draft after the "lottery system" slid us down to 5th overall... Fast forward a year... 2018 draft after the "lottery" slid us down to 7th overall this time... Jim said he doesn't care! Slide me down 3 spots I LIKE IT! But to somehow pull 2019 out

  3. I've been following this forum since 2008 and it's always great to read different perspectives about this team that we all love. Although I've hardly posted over the years, I feel compelled to now because I think we have a team that is unlike any other we've had before; at least within the time frame that I've been following the Canucks (the 02-03 season, the glorious WCE days). The person at the crux of moulding this roster is the ever polarizing Jim Benning. Love him or hate him, you have to admit that his run as GM, from what he inherited to what he is building up, has been unp

  4. For those that missed it, Kevin Bieksa was on the Halford & Brough show this morning and gave a very compelling interview. I highly recommend listening to the full thing: https://www.sportsnet.ca/650/halford-brough-morning/kevin-bieksa-edlers-major-media-covering-canucks-return-play/ Fast forward to 7:50 in... - Media in Vancouver is pretty entitled, in reference to not being allowed to look at two practices coming off Covid. - "If you're not gonna get it right, then don't report it" in reference to false reports about Quinn Hughes needing IV

  6. Many thanks to the Canucks organization for bringing AHL hockey back to both Utica and Syracuse, two former EHL rivals when Slap Shot was real, not just a movie. When the Devils left Utica many years ago it wasn't long after that NJ captured it's first Stanley Cup with former Utica Devil Martin Brodeur anchoring the net. May Thatcher Demko be your Brodeur and lead you to your first cup.

  8. Also: Because it's Autism Acceptance Night I feel I have to address comments earlier that hinted that having autistic kids is somehow a burden/curse when, in fact, they're a blessing. It's a lot of work and extremely tiring for sure...but autistic children are so gifted. Once you learn their nuances and how to enter their world instead of trying to force them into our world, they're incredible. As the person responsible for the front desk at our school for autistic kids, I got to spend each day supervising them until the bus arrived at dismissal. One was a brilliant pianist and also knew

  9. Given how challenging the last year has been for all of us, I want to take this opportunity to thank the Canucks ownership group for their commitment to the team and the fans. Having hockey to watch again during the pandemic is a blessing. Estimates are it may be costing our owners a loss of about 40m to have our team play this year. So thank you Francesco and family for your commitment to Vancouver, the Canucks and the fans. It would be a long winter without hockey to watch. Sometimes we forget when somebody does something above and beyond. Ya I get the fact that

  10. LOL @ Vancouver media and their "sources". I applaud Aquilini for having a backbone. If this season is a write-off, the decisions on management can made after this season. As much as I question Travis' coaching, along with his assistants, I do believe this is the right move to keep things intact. Fans who don't want to watch the Canucks can watch the Sens or Sabres. I honestly think our fanbase is too toxic. We are basically BEGGING the media to make up news to support what fans want to hear. LOL. The result? Journalism without accountability.

  15. Boston, Vegas, How many teams have pushed us around when it matters...and now we have turned a gentle giant into a tough SOB who will punch a rat in the face for barely slighting our goalie, and will take liberties on one of our opponents players, in a mini series where they've bullied our undersized stars. This is exactly what ownership, management, and coaching wants. Out fanbase needs to immediately, stfu, about Myers. He is exactly what this team needs and has adapted his game and demeanor PERFECTLY.

  16. He's a Canucks player, this is a Canucks forum. Plenty of us likely care. And on that note, get well soon hockey Gaud. Hopefully it doesn't sweep through the team.

  18. I just want to say this to the fans of the Vancouver Canucks. It has been a fun and adventure filled 8 years cheering for your team. I embraced the Comets and the Canucks when it was announced that we would be getting a team. I spent a lot of late nights listening to Brandon Batchelor announce the games 3 time zones away. Lol We had quite a run year 2 going to the Calder Cup finals with Marky and Travis leading the way. good luck and I will be rooting for the Nucks 3000 miles away!

  19. The logic behind letting Tanev, Markstrom, and Toffoli walk: By choosing to move forward with guys like Holtby, Schmidt, and Virtanen over Markstrom, Tanev, and Toffoli, Benning is thinking long term and not short term. Yes, we only saved 1.8 million in overall cap but those terms that Markstrom and Tanev got would have hurt us long term. As far as Toffoli goes, the Canucks were reportedly trying to move one of Boeser and Virtanen to clear space so that they could accommodate Toffoli’s salary but received low ball offers. Had Benning accepted those low ball offers f

  20. Be careful what you wish for. Some of us remember what ownership was like prior to Aquilini buying the team. It definitely wasn't better.

  21. If Holtby’s mask is a problem then this is a problem. where is the line between honouring the local heritage and cultural appropriation? Do I have to be Spanish or French to paint in a cubist style? If I make tacos for dinner have I done something wrong? I don’t know where the line is anymore.

  22. Putting aside the game result, which I won't comment on... it looks to me that Olli Juolevi is finding his skates in this league. Kinda reminds me of Dan Hamhuis with his offensive vision... he has an understanding of the pass in the offensive zone and when to jump up... handles the puck with a calmness which is promising. He isn't putting up the points yet, but I predict he will... he is just starting to get his head wrapped around what he needs to do to contribute. Defensive play is better too... after the mixed results early on in the season. His weak po

  23. I really hope we don't scratch Juolevi. We're at the point where this season doesn't matter anymore and it would make sense to play our younger players and see their overall progression by seeing them in game action and learning from their mistakes.

  24. Hope they can build off that win with no letdowns. Keep on rollin' And did anyone else hear the banter on 650 today?? I generally love the station but shut it off, was so ticked off. Do we always have to whine about something? The topic being discussed was JT Miller's "outburst" last night....like why is this even a thing? Why the hell are we going there when there was a good win last night that could be the focus? They were slamming him .... this is a damned if you do/don't market and I won't tune in for that crap. I LOVE that he was so emotionally invested and

  25. No one hates the Leafs like my Dad....he's been hating them for decades. Started YEARS ago when they chartered the fishing boat he was on and they all acted like royalty and treated the crew like garbage. Ordered them around. It was glaring....others had chartered the boat in the past and NEVER behaved so poorly. Total d bags and Dad never forgot it. He'd taken an autograph book along and then decided he didn't want their autographs. Screw them. Only got...Brian Spencer's. So ff to my daughter's birthday party decades later (in a small wooded area deemed a private Brown

  26. If MacEwen is only going to play four minutes, then might as well not play him at all and play with seven defencemen instead. Green has mentioned that the team looks tired due to the schedule, but he hasn't been managing the minutes very well.

  28. If we win this game, I wouldn’t be surprised if we go on a run like the 2019 Blues. Not a cup win, but sort of like what happened to them during the second half of the regular season in 2018-19.

  31. Or... and I'm just spitballing here... maybe, because the team was not very good because of rebuilding, they needed to offer those incentives to character players, to entice them to come to Vancouver; in order to prevent a perpetual losing culture being passed to young players; that has plagued some bottom feeding teams; many that were gifted top pick after top pick and have yet to drag themselves out of the basement of the league; even after rebuilding for longer than a decade.
