  1. If you're at the game tomorrow, dont boo Kesler, if for no other reason than to show respect for the Sedins.

      @Shift-4 that'd be something... "#17 Ryan Kesler!!!" (stands are empty)

      ***next guy announced*** everyone comes back and resumes cheering

       

      Stay classy Vancouver.

  2. I'm hoping to see Schaller on waivers. 

     

    Zero pushback. And he has by far the worst goals against with the Schiller-Beagle-Sutter line. Its not even close (https://www.naturalstattrick.com/linestats.php?fromseason=20192020&thruseason=20192020&stype=2&sit=5v5&score=all&rate=n&team=VAN&vteam=ALL&view=wowy&loc=B&gpfilt=none&fd=2019-10-02&td=2020-04-04&tgp=2000&strict=incl&p1=8477213&p2=8474291&p3=8474091&p4=0&p5=0)

     

    Useless &^@#ing plug, brings nothing and costs goals.

     

    Whew. OK there's my anger from last night all out.

      Just a reminder that Gallant is a players’ coach.  We have Petey and Huggy, who are clearly phenoms.  They deserve a prick coach, who will demand the rest of the team play the right way.  

    2. 6string

      Gallant can turn things around quickly but his departures from Florida and LV has me red flagging him, each time he was a let go was a huge surprise!

      Schaller and Eriksson are benched with Ferland and Motte's return.

  3. Congrat's to Christine Sinclair - now the all time leading goal scorer in int'l soccer

  4. Gaudette and Boeser are a poor fit. Prove me wrong. 

    1. bree2

      bree2

      Gaudette just likes to keep the puck, not once did he pass to Boeser last night, Boeser is a great player who deserves better players to play with. 

    2. DADDYROCK

      DADDYROCK

      Both of these players are young and finding chemistry with certain players takes awhile,Brock is a shooter and if he gets the puck at the right time could be very effective.

      Adam G. is also a shooter,but as a center has to be looking to pass the puck but if players aren't finding open spaces why take a chance of giving up the puck.His wingers need to be open so Adam can dish the puck at the right time for a good chance on net.

      As a third line center Adam has come along way and will continue to grow chemistry and the smarts to use his wingers more,a little confidence can go a long way.

  5. 1st time since 1967 a team has had 3 years in a row of rookies in the ASG. Well done Mr. Benning. 

     

     

    1. coastal.view

      coastal.view

      well we all know every team needs to be represented

      and the older players on the team do not warrant consideration

      so we are left with high level rookies

      says as much about our lack of elite veteran talent

       

      but at least we have quality youngsters

      bodes well for the future

  6. -88... is that the current temperature on Mars or the Red Wings +/-?

    1. Alflives

      Alflives

      But the Wings have Larkin?  :lol:

      so glad we didn’t waste a pick on Mr. Perimeter.

      I wonder if they'll hit -150? Stevie Y knows how to command a tank, thats for sure.

      -AJ-

      @Pears amazingly, not even close.

       

      The 1974-75 Capitals scored 181 goals and had 446 goals scored against them for a team +/- of -265.

  7. Can a line shuffle be as good as a trade?

     

    Top line Jake, Lazarus Loui, Gaudette-Boeser? can this really produce 3 legit scoring lines? no TDL moves needed? 

    1. luckylager

      luckylager

      No, I don't believe a line shuffle is as good as a trade if you're actually getting a better piece.

      However, when a rock star prospect gets added at the end of the season; that is better than a trade.

      Pod could be that next season.

      Could have a few guys breaking the door down next season actually.

       

       

      Rambling here, but if Tree comes back at the end of the season he'll be great on the bottom pairing with Myers or Stech. Would be nice if he's top 4 capable, but it looks like he hasn't really developed offensively in the KHL. Maybe his D game has improved though. I dunno

      Side note, in checking his stats on elite prospects, there's a "rumour" transaction notice posted today ....

      Phil_314

      True, Lazarus Loui has been quite the revelation on the 2nd line, both in terms of not being a liability anymore and actually contributing and gelling with his line-mates.  Jake and Brock also appear interchangeable which can only be beneficial for depth.

       

      Makes me wonder if we should still try to fix the 4th line though?  I know we have a couple of the better guys (Beagle was the 4th line center for a Cup winning team, Motte has also shown good energy and Sutter is serviceable) but we could use a cohesive grind line that doesn't get buried.  If we could find a guy who could be part of a unit which could lug the puck up ice, play physically, kill time, fore-check and score some (and hopefully we can shed cap along the way) then I think we could go quite far with this kind of top-12.

      Burrows moving to the top line with the Sedins comes to mind immediatley.

  8. hey are you still looking at electric vehicles? I've narrowed my search down to two - the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV or the Toyota Rav4 PHEV. Waiting to test drive the Toyota which is supposed to be available this spring. These two are the best value I've found. Not full electric but close enough for now. 

    1. Type R

      Type R

      So i'm curious, whats the knock against the Chevy Bolt?  Seems people clamour to the imports, but not much chat about the NA electric very good range.

      Volvo xc60 plug in hybrid is pretty nice. I think the xc40 has a plug in hybrid option as well and is a bit smaller and cheaper. Those things motor.

  9. Playing hockey that matters heading into the ASG. What is this long lost feeling? 

  10. I'm really happy that we all us fans got Hughes into the ASG and didn't choose apathy. Good on you folks.

  15. I dreamed last night that a group of orca's in a pool got mad and attacked their trainers. 

    1. -AJ-

      According to my dream interpretation skills, Canuck fans are the orcas and they're very mad and they are indeed attacking their trainers (Canucks coaching staff).

      I was thinking the orcas were the players, in the dream i was sitting in stands with other people

  18. last year 90 pts got you into the playoffs in the west. We're currently on pace for 92.

      -AJ-

      As much as I wish we were doing like we were in October, I predicted we'd be on the cusp of playoffs this year and so far we are. That said, it's still fairly early, so we'll see how things continue, especially if when Tanev ever gets injured

      its nice to see tho. they've had highs and lows already, injuries, etc. and still are very much in the hunt. 

  19. I want to beat down the Leafs so badly on Tuesday that they ask for Babcock back. 

  20. Does Puljujarvi get traded today? 

    1. Chickenspear

      @Where's Wellwood Deadline for RFA signings. If they don't sign by 5pm, they're ineligible to play in the NHL this season.

      It’s hilarious how the Soilers have lost any value in Poolparty.  I say they get a stalled prospect in return or a second round pick.  Should have traded they guy earlier for some depth.

      yeah Holland kind of blew this one I think, JPs not going to gain any more value playing in Finland, its not even AHL level experience. 

       

      Not surprised no one offered much for Honka.
