  1. Calgary, Ottawa, Jets, Canucks... this is is just turning out to be the greatest week ever!

  2. ... what? Yeah, I wasn't really focusing on that though. More of what it implied which could have some merit. He kind of elaborated on it later on which was his attitude in respect for junior hockey as a whole. If he thinks he's too good for the league and that's reflected in his play I don't know if another year in Calgary is really what's best for him. And although it might seem stupid, body language is a pretty good indicator of what a player is going through. Especially for a hard nosed kid like Virtanen who seems to thrive on the emotional rollercoaster.
  3. Here's an interesting take on the kid. I'm not in a position to agree or disagree with it but it would explain a lot of the shortcomings he's had as a player. If it is the case I think playing in juniors next year would be the worst thing for him. It will just feed this poor mentality of his and cause even more frustration. I think more than anything the kid needs to be humbled by being mentored and controlled by veteran players who can guide him in that aspect. http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/showpost.php?p=100428137&postcount=209
  4. Time for all the crapty Canucks playoff cover songs by crapty singers. Yeah, I said it.

  6. I apologize for not being able to watch every Comets and Hitmen game that comes on, there are a small numbers of posters that do on here (and some even go out of their way to make game recaps of individuals) so I think it's safe to trust them. It's the most I can do as a fan. I'd love nothing more for Virtanen to impress, and have people raving about his impact on the ice game after game but he hasn't and they aren't. That's what it comes down to at the end of the day. But I do assume you with your impressive moral compass actually HAVE been watching each and every game of Virtanen's, so p
  7. Well, take it as you will, and I being one of those 'extremely negative' people am a little frustrated. The way I see it was heading into the draft we already had a plethora of prospects who could fill in third and second line roles as they develop. What we're missing in a big way is a #1 D and first line forwards. Now don't get me wrong Virtanen still has that potential, but his offensive ceiling isn't close to the next two draftees. We didn't lose in 2011 because the Bruins beat us into submission, and we didn't suck last year because we lost against the big bad teams of the West. We los
  8. It's OK guys, we can coach it out of him. This guys the best player for the Hitmen and it shows tonight. What a beaut.

  10. Ehlers, feel free to start sucking any time now.

  11. He likes the way he plays and the expectations here rather than there, that's kind of an interesting comment. Did he follow that up or has he hinted as to what that might imply?
  12. Frack off Calgary.

  13. 4 games for Big Buff. RIP Jets.

      ^^ No arguing that, I'm just kind of disappointed because that fanbase deserves a playoff berth.

      Jets are like the Flames. I don't see this stopping them.

      Shut it Barzal...This was some of the worst reffing I have seen in my entire life. Why in god's name was Bieksa tossed?

      Bieksa with the 'wakey, wakey' to Gaustad lying on the ice. Not sure how that's usually handled so I'm not going to comment.

      ^I hope you're yolking.

  17. This kid is unbelievable. Every game he just surpasses my expectations. Carrying the hitman on his back right now.
  18. So, I'm too lazy to look it up or do the math so can someone tell me... a) How Baertschi looks at even strength? How many even strength points he has?
  19. In a verbal argument containing wit not even Mr. Satan could compete in, who will win ? Gstanku or Bangeta? Find out next time on C.D.C.
