Comets Regular (5/16)



  1. Haha fixed it! Thanks for noticing! Really need to hire a prof redder...
  2. Vancouver Canucks (2-2-1) @ Seattle Kraken (1-3-1) 7:00PM PST at Climate Pledge Arena TV: HULU, CBC, CITY, TVAS2 Radio: SN 650 Last Time Vs The Kraken A Friendly Reminder... (From the Vancouver Canucks, the Seattle Kraken are proud to select Kole Lind...) The Good Guys (Subject to Change) LW C RW J.T. MILLER ELIAS PETTERSSON BROCK BOESER TANNER PEARSON BO HORVAT CONOR GARLAND MATTHEW HIGHMORE JASON DICKINSON NILS HOGLANDER JUSTIN DOWLING JUHO LAMMIKKO ALEX CHIASSON DEFENSIVE PAIRINGS OLIVER EKMAN-LARSSON TYLER MYERS QUINN HUGHES TUCKER POOLMAN JACK RATHBONE KYLE BURROUGHS GOALIES THATCHER DEMKO JAROSLAV HALAK Team Analysis Top 5 Scorers: Conor Garland: 2G - 4A - 6P in 5 GP J.T. Miller: 1G - 5A - 6P in 5GP Quinn Hughes: 1G - 2A - 3P in 4GP Tanner Pearson: 1G - 2A - 3P in 5GP Elias Pettersson: 1G - 2A - 3P in 5GP Who's Hot: Conor Garland: Having scored at least one point in EVERY game he's played in, Conor is enjoying a five game point streak, scoring 6 points! 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. The pressure is on for the newly extended superstar in the making! Special Teams: The Canucks Power Play ranks 14th in the league while boasting an awful 71.4% efficiency on the penalty kill (tied for 26th with the Minnesota Wild) Who to Watch: HHD Line: With a strong performance against Chicago, watch for Hoglander, Dickinson, and Highmore to continue their momentum and add much needed depth scoring against a hard-working, albeit talent limited Kraken team. Brock Boeser: After scoring his first goal last game against the Blackhawks, watch for Boeser to pad his stats against a struggling Grubauer! Sick Bay Micheal Ferland: Concussion (LTIR, No timetable for return) Brendan Sutter: Post-Covid Fatigue (No timetable for return) Tyler Motte: Unknown injury (No timetable for return) Brady Keeper: LBI (No timetable for return) Travis Hamonic: LOA (No timetable for return) The Other Guys (Subject to Change) LW C RW JADEN SCHWARTZ YANNI GOURDE JORDAN EBERLE BRANDON TANEV JARED MCCANN MORGAN GEEKIE NATHAN BASTIAN ALEXANDER WENNBERG JOONAS DONSKOI RYAN DONATO RILEY SHEAHAN MASON APPLETON DEFENSIVE PAIRINGS ADAM LARSSON JAMIE OLEKSIAK MARK GIORDANO CARSON SOUCY JEREMY LAUZON VINCE DUNN GOALIES CHRIS DRIEDGER PHILIPP GRUBAUER In Case You Missed It...

  3. Np! Thanks for the update. I'll get Seattle up this evening!
  4. So to confirm I'm doing tomorrow vs Seattle and the 28th vs flyers
  5. I don't mind Podz sitting out a game. I don't think he had a poor game by any means as that 2nd goal doesn't happen without his zone entry and possession control. Much like Rathbone/Juolevi last year or Boeser in 2017, sometimes you sit a player to give them an opportunity to watch from above... there is some learning and development involved just from watching. Now I also don't believe that scratching Podkolzin gives the Canucks a better chance to win tonight, but sometimes to take a step forward you need to take a step back. I'm willing to bet that the Canucks learned a fair amount inserting Hunt and Schenn last game to fill in for an injured Hughes and an inexperienced Burroughs... hopefully it leads to positive results.
  6. I'll do Seattle on Oct 23 and the Oilers rematch on Oct 30 if available.
  7. Some observations: - OEL is showing that he's still got it! Very impressed with his game tonight! - Chiasson would be better suited to PP2 and 3rd line on 5v5. Bump Garland up to get a left side threat. - Dickinson line looked fantastic tonight. Alot of folks don't like Highmore that high up the line up, but he brings alot of speed and energy. I'm ok with him holding the fort until Motte is good to go. Meanwhile, Höglander is like a wolverine out there. Great game with 2 assists and at least 3 missed penalty draws. - Demko was great tonight. 2 goals against that he had very little chance stopping, and several high danger saves as well. Would've liked the Turris Shootout goal back, but it was a long night, plus shootouts are really a coin toss. - Myers had terrible coverage on the first goal, but he certainly made up for it with the Keith hit. That's going to be in compilation videos for years to come... Also, I'm really digging Poolman's game. One game sample, but I'm pretty sure he's discount Chris Tanev out there, especially while playing with Hughes. - Nice debut for Podkolzin. Think I saw him take shifts with Pettersson/Miller at points. Under 10 minutes TOI but he played well. Hoping to see those minutes slowly increase as time go on and he gains more trust. - Speaking of TOI, not impressed with Rathbone/Burroughs playing 12 minutes or less. There were alot of PP opportunities so I imagine that would factor in, but I actually thought Burroughs had a good defensive game tonight. If after 7 or so games Rathbone's TOI doesn't increase, I say reunite him with Woo in Abbotsford and give him some major contributing minutes and slot Hunt in at 3LD instead. Can't force feed Hughes 30 minutes a game and expect him to not get tired. - Dowling is very underatted. I was skeptical of having him in PP2 but he plays a good possession style game and plays with good speed and tenacity. Also enjoyed Lammikko in his limited time. Defensively responsible, good on the forecheck... both players have been sufficient in covering for Sutter while he's out. A fun game with the stolen point at the end. Not a bad way to start the season. GO Canucks GO!
  8. Not sure if Cholowski makes it to us, but I'd certainly put in a claim. Would allow Rathbone to log major minutes in the A. Question is now that Rathbone has been named to the opening night roster, would sending him down increase his cap hit? Something about bonuses that I don't quite understand...
  9. Best of luck to MacEwen. He would've been useful in Abbotsford, but happy to see him still playing in the NHL.
  10. Some observations: - I can do without Chiasson. Good player, but redundant once you account for the other players. - I'm liking Dowling as 13th forward or 4C while Sutter is out. Defensive responsible and has a motor. - if Gadj is sent down and clears waivers, I'm hoping he continues to lineup with Wouters and Lockwood. They're line has been very effective at maintaining puck possession. Also, Gadj's skating has improved tremendously. No longer chasing the play, but rather applying hard pressure. - The big guns are taking it easy tonight, but OEL is throwing his weight around. Shades of another 23 circa 2011? - Poolman is looking stable. Looking forward to seeing how he does against tougher competition. - Podz is alot more dynamic than I thought. Clearly nervous, but liking his play in limited minutes so far.
  11. With the new $62 million signings of both Svechnikov and Couturier, does anyone else like the idea of $7.75 x 8 for Petey?
  12. Thanks for the love everyone! I didn't realize so many people would enjoy this little project of mine. Very, very flattered!
  13. Being the optimist that I am, as well as a die hard Canucks fan, I'm happy to share this new hype video I put together for your enjoyment! I hope you enjoy the music I put together for this video. It's an original composition called "A Team Like That!" Super amped for the season! Hope you enjoy!
  14. I think it depends on how he performs at camp. If he has a strong camp but he's still beaten out of a 6/7 spot by Rathbone/Hunt, I say trade him, even if it's a 5th round pick. If he has a poor camp, it's likely he can slip through for some necessary development time in Abbotsford, at which point he would garner more value as a flexible piece that can go up and down for a limited amount of time. It's a gamble in any event, and only time will tell.
