  1. Give up a 1st round pick for OJ? Who's willing to give us that? I would trade him for a 1st round pick ASAP if that was on the table. Highly doubt it is.
  2. Walking from Markstrom 6x6 was a gain. Thank you Demko. Walking from Tanev & picking up Schmidt & Hamonic is a gain. Walking from Toffoli (Madden & 2nd) & re-signing Virtanen was a big loss. Now we need another Toffoli (& what does that cost us?) & we can't even give away Virtanen and his $3.5 mill anchor contract next year who could easily be placed with $1 mill or less players. (Vessey, Boyd, Leivo, Macewan, etc.)

      @TNucks1 He just does that to get the senior's discount at restaurants.:P

  4. "Too good to be in the AHL" Are you sure about that? This was his last AHL season. I don't recall ever hearing anything like that or see it with my own eyes ever. Stats sure don't back it up either... Sure like to see him sent down there to see if he could even prove your point now? What are our options? Apparently his trade value is next to none. So trading him for nothing to possibly see him wake up there. We gain nothing from this. Maybe knowing this being his last chance to get back to the show actually wakes Jake up? But Maybe he can work his butt of
  5. ^ This my post from 2017 ^ This is my post a few weeks ago. I hear you bro. I've supported this guy since his draft year. He's in his 7th Pro Season. When you've been called out publicly by coaches a few years in a row at training camps, then the GM calls you out for your poor playoff performance. This was the season to come out of the gates flying if ever. Instead he needs another reset just 10 games into his 7th Pro Season... 7 years of dreaming he'll mature when he clearly isn't putting in the effo
  6. I've watched Boston play this year a few times. N.Ritchie is on the Top line & Top PP in Boston. 6 points in 6 games (3g 3a) playing 16:00 + a night. I'd take N. Ritchie any day over Virtanen. Ritchie is trending upwards while Jake... Pay attention to the whole NHL & you would've realized this too. https://www.nhl.com/player/nick-ritchie-8477941?stats=gamelogs-r-nhl&season=20202021 Last 5 games Opponent Date G A
  7. Hoglander, Demko, Juolevi, Rafferty, Chatfield, tomorrow Brisbois, Rathbone? I believe the kids are in... Who's left Lind?
  8. Boys in Blue off to a great start. Not trying to knock on anybody , but Chatfield looks much better than Juolevi did to me so far. Yes way too early to judge but my eye test tells me Chatfeild is in for the near future. Calm, cool. collect. Moves the puck out of his zone like a vet and has some IDGAF lets go attitude.

  10. 2 years of coming into camp under coaches standard. Gets called out publicly by the GM after a poor playoffs. After all that he comes in this year without much drive in him again. If anybody needed to come out of the gates flying it was Jake. I've been one to back this guy up waiting patiently for him to mature. Obviously it's just not going to happen in this city. He doesn't fit in the top 6 simply because he's not smart enough. Hogs is already passed him & Podz will undoubtedly do the same. I'm not sure he fits in our bottom 6 either as he's not hungry or gritty enough. He se
  11. lol I remember you were another claiming he was 6'4''...
  12. So I said 6'1''-6'2''. You're saying 6'3''. So the real argument you are making here is 1". lol. Like I said earlier, EDLER is 6'3". When Podz gets here & is equal to EDLERS height I will 100% admit i was wrong. I hope you do the same. We'll be talking soon RWMc1 & Deb.
  13. My eye puts him t 6'1'' - 6'2'' today... But 6'4'' https://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=218396 -6'0'' https://dobberprospects.com/player/vasili-podkolzin/ -6'1'' https://www.celebsagewiki.com/vasily-podkolzin 6'0'' https://www.capebretonpost.com/sports/hockey/canucks-top-10-prospects-vasili-podkolzins-two-way-game-is-nearly-nhl-ready-505245/ 6'1'' https://canucksarmy.com/2020/09/08/video-vancouver-canucks-prospect-vasili-podkolzin-scores-goal-khl-season/ In other news, the KHL website ha
  14. https://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=218396 6'0'' So...who knows? I Know he's not 6'4" . Soon enough we'll all know. Regardless of his height he's the REAL DEAL. That's the most important thing now & in the end...
  15. LOL Deb. Simple Eye test says it all. Plus I'm a realist. Edler is 6'3" Once Podz gets here & stands next To Edler everyone will see he's 6'1" Then we'll revisit this. Also glad 2 games doesn't resonate ones career... Glad Podz shut the doubters up quickly tonight.
  16. He plays a similar game/style to Bo Horvat. |||Which will translate to the NHL. Also, If anybody's actually watching they would realize he's NOT 6'4'' LMAO. He's 6'1''...
  17. AT this point it's SIMPLE now, Stay the F*@# HOME EVERYONE...........
