  1. SwedeHockey will be on display tonight!!! 

  2. Ray Ferraro was on tsn1040 today and made some excellent points about Jake. I agree with what he said, which is basically to send Virtanen down to Utica where he hopefully scores 10-15 goals before Christmas. Allow him to play 15-16 minutes a night and continue to build his confidence. Then, bring him up to the NHL.
  3. 3 games doesn't really mean a whole lot other than that he's clearly gained better habits. If this wasn't the case then in February 2016 he would've been considered the second coming of Jesus.
  4. I agree. If he play well in pre-season, I think it's best to reward him with more ice time in Utica and a larger role on the PP. Let him get comfortable this year playing in different situations and have him be one of the first call ups for injuries. For me, the same goes with Boeser, Dahlen, Goldobin, and Juolevi (who will likely play in Finland).
  5. No. I don't think they could make up for the injuries.
  6. I'm not going to write him off until after this summer. He certainly is no Nylander, Ehlers, but he as a skillet that can be effective as an NHL 3rd line/grinder at the least albeit a low IQ. However, if he comes to camp and plays like he did this year, I will personally label him as a bust. You can make a case for someone still learning the pro game, which is fine by me, but you can't make an excuse for someone who repeatedly shows up to training camp looking like a Big Whopper meal while acting entitled.
  7. Man, the excitement in the ACC right now. You gotta tip your hat to Leafs.

      Really? I mean, I never liked them pre Babcock, but I think if you're a fan of the game, you have to applaud that.

      A fan of the game, yes. 

      A fan of the leafs, hell no!

      Sorry buddy. Just can't do it. 

  8. +1 Having just watched that highlight package, Jake seems like he's got some of his confidence back. While he may not be putting up the points now, they will come with hard work and patience. I agree that there is room for improvement, but it's always good to see a player get some of their confidence back. Taking 3 shots in the last minute is a good example of that.
  9. If Gaud can end up being a solid 4th liner for us in his prime (similar to a la Max Lapierre, energy type player who can play) I consider this to be a huge steal.
  10. Brandon Saad, get him ;)

  11. @-Vintage Canuck-, do you happen to have Jim Bennings' radio interview on TSN 1040 today? I cannot find it anywhere :(

      Thanks VC! You continue to impress! 

  12. I really dislike Jeff Marek's shows.

    1. thejazz97


      I used to like him when he was on the Hotstove, but now he just seems anti-Canuck.


      I dunno. Maybe he always has been.

      IMO, the only person in the media that doesn't come off as anti-Canuck is John Garrett. 

  13. That moment when you realize that Ryan Johansen follows the Canucks on Twitter. 



      But he still follows his old team :( so we aren't important

    2. Odd.
