  1. Vey, Fanta, Tryamkin and way back in the corner Larionov. Bure doesn't count I think he lives in Florida.
  2. You nailed it. As pros they know whether they can go or not. If it is a no then sit the game(s) out. I don't have a problem with that.
  3. Go Shotgun! Who was more snakebit around the net than Jake, Gauds and Peter? What impact will Podz have playing on a line with Jake? Jake-Sutter-Podz. A shutdown line with break away speed.
  4. Because Podz is picked for Team Russia does that mean he has to go? I suspect he would. What 19 year old is going to say no. I would be curious to know if Podz has talked to Tryamkin? Higher comfort level for both players to have a fellow countryman on the Canucks. I have a high anxiety level for any Russian player not under contract. Benning should sign both ASAP.
  5. If they resign Sutter then he and Horvat can shelter a rookie 4C to a degree. Haven’t seen much of Jasek but liked his game at the Worlds. Decent speed and size. Jasek played at the pro level in Czech before he came to Utica. I think he has a good chance of playing NHL.
  6. Did they give your 2nd appointment when you got your first jab? We go on Monday.
  7. The health issue was a red flag for me. Not based on anything other than weight. If his d-side game had been a bit better I might question the deal more. The fact that Miller has done so well at C since Petey went down also plays into it. JB can extend Sutter and work his 4C back and forth with the 3C based on opposition. Also might be an indication that Beagle's future is in doubt.
  8. I personally am going to love it when Jordie Benn scores against the Laffers and kicks them out of the CUP race. Of course his point shot deflects into the net off of Hutty.
  9. Obviously we aren't privy to JB's inside knowledge. As fans we speculate which is a big part of fandom. - JB didn't think Gaudette could be a 3rd line regular on a CUP contender. As a center he was suspect on the d-side. Winger? - maybe his health issues scared the Canucks off. - Does Highmore fit on the 4th line? I liked Gaudette's speed and shot and tenacity. I didn't like his size or his FO% or his d-side game. I didn't like his snap kick of his bride during their wedding. I wish him well.
  10. The hype around Turris was pretty high and Arizona was desperate for talent. I think they rushed him. Gretzky was in tough there that's for sure. Turris career is slight above 0.5 ppg so from offensive side he was solid but not great. He's not a bad d-side player so I thought he could develop that side of the game to extend his career.
  11. Kyle Turris: I never liked the fact that Arizona played him at 18 & 19. A year after that he spent a whole season in the AHL. Gretzky coached him and was tough on him so you wonder what the story is. His work in the Ottawa community was outstanding. Great human being. No real place for him on the Canucks.
  12. All of what you mentioned but I would also point out his PK development. I suspect JB sees him finishing this contract at 3LW with more PK minutes. He has decent size and speed and will be able to shelter Podz to a degree. I think it is Rous who will be gone not Pearson.
  13. Did I mention Trudeau? I can always count on your kneejerk defense of this goof. I did not specifically but I will easily group him in with the history of Canadian leadership deferring to foreign power. What do I expect Canada to do? Clearly to defend Canadian interests in our sovereign territory. You appear willing to defer to the Americans which is a big mistake IMO. It is not a case of gunboat diplomacy yet, as the Russians have made their case to the UN. My concern is the Canadian military's ability to put actual boots on the ground (ice). At what point is the line drawn? I am sure the Ukr
