  1. I also want to reiterate, I am not saying that the 3rd and 4th line doesn't matter. I know they are super important but I am trying to say a player like Zach MacEwan is not going to make a difference nor is Bailey etc etc. A solid 3rd line was for examply Lapierre, Torres, and Malholtra - wow wow, they could win faceoffs, hit, and play with energy. You can't expect someone like Macewen to actually make a difference, hes just a placeholder. A difference making 3rd liner would be prime Ferland (if he was on the 3rd line) or someone like Tom Wilson etc etc.
  2. in my honest opinion, i don't think one player especially a plug like macewan will make a difference. he plays what 7 mins a night usually? if canucks fans want harder hitter and tougher players to play against then they're going to have to wait for ferland and or podkolzin. you need tough players in your top 6, that actually play the majority of the game. not some plug who comes on for a few minutes. example: bertuzzi, lucic(in his prime), ferland (2015 playoff version), etc etc and NO this does not mean the solution is to inject bailey and or macewan in the top

Ever since the playoffs and during the playoffs people would always rave about "we need someone with size in the lineup" or "I hope MacEwen plays tomorrow" In my honest opinion, I don't think it has ever made a difference if we had Bailey or MacEwen in our lineups, they are all 4th line plugs that barely do anything. I just don't understand all the hype behind it. Maybe someone like Ferland would make a actual difference if he played 1st or 2nd line since he actually has produced points in his lifetime. Now, I am not saying we
  4. ok so i have always been a virtanen supporter and ive watched his junior highlights and videos of him and ive also watched him closely especially during these playoffs. all i saw during these playoffs from him was a player who literally has a ahl quality hockey iq. sure he might have speed and a build but when i watched him he never really used the speed. someone who always used there speed was someone like tuch. i was always waiting for the time for virtanen to get his legs moving but he never really had that. idrk whats wrong with him some poeple say confidence or that he doesnt ca
