  1. I’m just Excited we don’t have to talk about Lou Erickson ever again. ! These are two legit players as stated there are more moves to come looking forward to see how this all comes together for opening night. !
  2. ........In this episode of 30 for 30. Where are they now. David Rittich
  3. The only positive to having him out makes Green play some different combinations and our use of him on the PP was way too predictable. Hopefully the boosted ice time for other players who needed to get going on offfence has helped. Getting him back is no doubt a positive and maybe fired up some other cylinders to get the whole engine going.
  4. What’s the word on Petey ? Will we see him again this season ?? whats his injury ?? I couldn’t find anything other than upper-body??
  5. He was rocked. I would be worried to put him back in the net. Hands and voice shaking. Hard not to feel for the guy.
  6. Poor Rittich. He looked like demoralized child in that presser like someone please take him for an ice cream..... in other news. Canucks are doing it!! Great win. I enjoyed the last two games because some players that have been off this year really showed up last two nights. Nice to see Pearson and Sutter on the offence! Holtby has been what we signed in the off season. One can Hope!
  7. Holtby ! Man we needed you to find some game, this season his confidence has been lost, so that was Great to see, maybe this reset has helped him find some mojo. Hopefully that type of game gives the whole team some confidence in the upcoming battles regardless of who's back there. Horvat comes up clutch. A statement game for him showcasing why he's wearing the C. Proud of the Canucks tonight not for the win but for the level of compete and give a Sh!t they all showcased, even a notch higher than last season's playoffs considering who they were missing from the roster tonight and playing the number one team in the division...... oh yeah and not to mention the Covid!! Bravo Canucks ! love it !
  8. This is going to be a tough game for the Canucks. Demko is going to need to be sharp. Road trip hangover coming.
  9. Miller is this teams Identity right now. Nothing against Horvat. But Miller is leading this team.
  10. Demko.... then some more Demko when we are worried he's tired. Holtby should bring him some Gatorade and fan him with a big Banana leaf feed him some grapes and then we go with .... you guess it. Demko for the rest of the season.
  11. Demko ! We need to sign this guy. If Myers played this way all the time in the corner boards he would live up to his 6 million nice he added a goal. Nice team hard checking win, holding hard against the top two forwards in the game. let's keep the momentum going.
  12. Miller shot is deadly he needs to keep shooting no passing just shooting !! All game long. I would almost change it up and start feeding him over EP40 for a bit on the PP.
  13. Thanks for the refreshing read against the grain in the boards. Agree with most of all your comments. If the young talent heats up and gets a little more confidence in their game I think there could be a solid run of games in the coming month. The pair of games against the lead leading TO might just be that spark required. !! I'm one who Dares to hope against the rest of the gang who wants to live in spite and ruin of everyone who's to be blamed that the season wasn't off to a 25-0-01 even then let's be honest there would be someone at fault for the loss in OT lol.
  14. Meh the years hasn't gone great but we have young talent with short memory. If they get on a run watch out! There is lots to be gained by being an underdog that could trip up teams into underestimating the young quality of talent on the Canucks . Our Top guys are as good as any and Miller is still a stud, Hughes is still a phenom, and Boeser is having his best year. The backend is weak this year so we live and die by the back end but Demko could steal a few bench Holtby as back up for the season unless it's absolutely necessary. never say never. !!
  15. And we didn't start him tonight...... Demko needs to be the starter this year you can ride a goalie the whole season no need to worry about work load management it's the playoffs has to be the mentality..start middle end. Nothing against holtby he's not the teams future. I was surprised we picked him up After the way Demko finished in the playoffs it was apparent he was ready for the show. Holtby is a great backup plan if Demko is hurt but I don't like the lack of confidence in how we have started the season not letting him know he's number 1
  16. Reminds me of the time I once I left my natural gas BBQ on all night like Travis green is doing to Holtby, leaving him in the net. next morning it was burnt to a crisp and ruined. I had to throw it out just like this game. In hindsight I didn't actually like that bbq and I ended up with the one I wanted a Weber that is built better and cooks better ! Demko is better and will make us better
  17. Green should have pulled Holtby to get his team straight in the first. The games lost now. Disappointing.
  18. Should have started Demko. It's too short a season to play fiddler with goaltending playing time and sharsies we need to go for wins and Demko has proven he can start and was hot coming in. I'm not blaming Holtby but the team plays better infront of Demko they play more confident.
  19. Would like to see Demko as the starter. Holtby backup. Demko with more games could be a top ten goaltender.
