  1. Nice to see the Tampa LTIRs go down in game 1. Go Barry. 

    1. Brad Marchand

      Hey, that's the Tampa Bay LTIRning to you.

    2. Elias Pettersson

      A $100 million playoff roster and they need a 6 on 4 to score their only goal against the Islanders.  I wonder what they will do next year?  Any more players they can trade for that are on LTIR?

    3. Dazzle

      I think the hockey gods will take action.

  2. Should we look at bringing back Fantenberg for next year? We need solid, cheap, players for one more year. Plus there would be a familiar face for Podkolzin.

      I was surprised nobody picked him up tbh, he was solid in his role

      i thought Fanta played really well, but I kind of figure a combination of Juolevi, Edler & Bowey will be the bottom 3 D. If anyone gets moved though, he could be a solid addition.

      Fantenberg is IMO one of the best 6/7 defenseman in the league. Cheap/Reliable. I would be more than okay with bringing him back.

      In fairness to this guy, he got taken out by a dirty Tkachunky play in the Edm bubble. But he's in danger of entering that irrational, Naz Kadri, flailing-gomer-mode.

      @Heretic @hammertime He was playing quite well too. Shame. 

  4. Dhaliwal suggesting Kirk Muller might be added to the bench. Yes please.

      So which assistant would be getting the axe in this scenario? Can Muller run a Powerplay? Can he coach Defenseman?

    3. King Heffy

      King Heffy

      Willing to bet he can do a better job than both the clowns currently sabotaging the team with their incompetence but he has experience running a powerplay.  I would hope that we find another actual coach in order to replace Baumer as well; he is at risk of causing permanent damage to our young D group with his coaching.

      kirk muller would be a great head coach, just saying .

      What doesn't get discusssed enough has been just how solid the Canucks goaltending has been since even the Cloutier years (he only tended to 'melt-down' in the postseason).  No matter who was the GM, our goalie coaches have been generally consistantly (good).

       

      Even goalie prospects like Eddie Lack who had a short-lived NHL career, has some bright moments (and his ended early because of injuries.

    3. Jimmy McGill

      ... and Demko pulls ahead some more last night :lol:

       

      I'm petty, I want to see Calgary melt down.

      drummer4now

      What also doesn't get discussed NewbieCanucksFan is the mismanagement of these solid goaltenders over the years... From Cloutier to Markstrom. 

       

  8. Is Claude still technically in the bubble?

      Gotta imagine that's it for Treliving if so.

      And wouldn't be surprised if at least one of Monahan or Gaudreau is traded.

      I could see Jonny being moved for sure. Not sure how that fixes the motivation issues there, I guess it depends who they bring in.

      It's funny, because most of their top guys should be in their prime (with the exception of Gio) 

       

      And we complain about mediocrity here, at least we've gotten some higher picks out of missing the playoffs

      I have always thought of particles like Billiard balls. Once the big bang released them, like breaking the rack in Billiards, they should have calculable destinations..

      its kind of a scary idea, actually, because there would be no way for you to really know if everything really is predetermined. It would break down pretty quickly if you tried to use it as an excuse for cheating on your girlfriend.

      About 1997? We had a snowfall in November. I was working for a cell phone company on the North Shore.

      So I was driving over the Lions Gate Bridge. And snow was starting to fall. It was one of those picture postcard moments. Then I think it was CFMI on the radio, the DJ played Greg Lake's "I Believe in Father Christmas". It was that brief moment in syncronicity, and to top it off. The crescendo was right as I was driving off the bridge. 


      I won't forget that moment. I gotta say it was beautiful. Gave me chills, but in a good way.

      @Ghostsof1915 Awesome mate. it's beautiful how such moments get frozen in memory. Had one like that where I was drivin home from Cowtown(Dec 1992)..had broken up with LT girl, & even my heater(old Datsun) was broken!

      :^) blowin cold air, all night thru the Rockies. I was blastin G & R, screamin lyrics louder than Axel, to keep warm. Finally reached Hope..the town that is, not the state of mind,  Couldn't pick up Van radio yet, but wondered which tune would welcome me back to Gawd's country.

      Around Chilli, there were Larry & Willy's grating enthusiasm, announcing they were now playing the MOST requested tune, for some call-in, who wanted to record the classic:

       

      "I'll have a bbbbbbbb blue Christmmas, w,w,w,without youuuuuu!..." (the Porky Pig classic cover)

      Felt so damn good..laughin with a tear in the eye! 28 yrs, & feels like yesterday.

      here's how I know alt-theories on covid are BS. When you have trouble breathing you won't be reaching for your opinion, you'll be reaching for a ventilator.

      I’ve had covid. It lasted 4 weeks. Was not fun but I’m young. For me it was like a bad Flu. 
       

      No matter what though. It’s tough on the body and you should wear a mask if you are young especially to protect your grandparents and other people’s family. Young people are lucky but we need to do our part no matter what.

      Wow Jimmy..that's prettydamn cool. To me, she's one of the greatest artists of the 20th C.

       

      I listen to Hejira,(full album on Utube) all the time. It takes a true painter to write lyrics like hers. Absolute, unique genius.

       

      Have been worried about her health, after her last illness(few yrs back)...

      I remember my mom telling me a story about how Joni would just bop around the hallways singing to herself as a kid. Apparently you could see it all way back then. 

    4. Nuxfanabroad

      Nuxfanabroad

      Indeed..invest a little time into some of her interviews(there's a long one, with weirdo Ghomeshi on Q, CBC)

       

      She's so open about herself. There's an honesty/integrity, that's always reflected within her work. Did your Ma attend school with her in Saskatoon or Alberta?

      @kanucks25 this has nothing to do with race, or white males.  It has everything to do with the a very small percentage of the population being offended by just about everything, and having their insignificant opinions multiplied by the absurd powers of social media.

      I think the buyout window for the Canucks begins today, and is 24 hours not 48 so we don't have long to wait to see if thats an option.

      its like you've heard this before 

    3. Coconuts

      It also reflects the quality and integrity of the Leafs roster. Jake's a party boy who doesn't take his diet or training seriously, he's obviously not invested and now he's overpaid. Expect two or three articles about how the Virtanen signing exposes Benning's investment in flawed hockey players. I mean, he signed Loui who's flaw is that he's only willing to score most of his goals into empty nets so there's a track record. But expect any comments related to Leafs star Matthews not exposing Bening, just himself, to mysteriously vanish.

      Well, Jake is at Tyler Myer's house every day exercising

       

      so....either Jake is going to come to camp fit

       

      or.....Myers is coming to camp looking like a balloon

      I'm thinking Jake for a RHD. Or maybe its hope. 

       

      But man shows you how rare big moves are going to be this year, nice he was in on such a key move in Nate. 

    3. The Lock

      The Lock

      To be fair, it might not even have to be Virtanen directly for an RHD. It could be a cap dump and Hamonic signs or something (I believe he's a RHD anyway).

       

      But I don't know, I guess it's one of those things where we will see.

    4. CRAZY_4_NAZZY

      CRAZY_4_NAZZY

      I think with the entire league in constipation cap wise, I don't think many people want to take on any salary or contracts.  I think its sign Virtanen and a depth D/goalie and we are likely done.

  22. Drance saying things with Jacye Hawryluk trending positive to a potential signing... him and Motte together could be dynamite.
