  1. What's your guys' HUT lines so far? I've got a bit lucky with some grabs lately. A week ago my team was a lot worse than this. Ovechkin (86) - MacKinnon (86) - Cournoyer (85) Naslund (84) - Pettersson (85) - Wheeler (84) Benn (83) - Seguin (85) - Wilson (82) Guentzel (83) - Niewendyk (85) - Dadonov (82) Keith (82) - Subban (83) Ekman-Larsson (83) - Hamilton (82) Josi (83) - Barrie (82) Price (86) Hellebuyck (84)
  2. Anyone surprised by this voting result, I don't really know what to tell you. Everyone report by analysts had it going this way before the vote even happened. I mean, Makar on paper looks pretty damn good beside Hughes. It could have gone either way. To a lot of voters, I'd assume that the numbers do most of the talking, especially east coasters who don't watch a ton of Avs/Canucks games. Makar had more goals in less games, and a higher points per game. While we all would have loved a deep dive by the voters into why Hughes should have been voted over Makar, it just wasn't going to happen. It could have gone both ways and we should be happy that Hughes had 53 1st place votes.....that's more than I expected from the vote.
  3. Tbh that's a great list of features they added. I'm excited for it. Also, damn, I'm actually surprised at those added stats at the bottom. Penalty kill clears? Penalties drawn? Those are some awesome stats to scout EASHL players with, or just keep track of your own guy. Never would have expected they would add those. I'm just curious how accurate those stats will be.
  4. Talk about penalty calls and everything else all you want, but the Canucks had their chances to seal this game. Up 3-2, they had 2 PPs where they generated little to no offense. Then there was that point blank Virtanen chance later on as well, on top of Gaudette missing more than a few. Like JT said in the post-game, they just gotta focus on next game. Take it one game at a time. It's a steep, uphill battle from here on out. It's possible, but it's going to be very tough. Vegas is a giant of a team and has had Vancouver's number for the majority of every season.
  5. So, they played the audio of Reaves clucking doing the chicken noises when Roussel came out of the box. Roose gets a midconduct and other penalties for his chirping, but Reaves can cluck like a chicken for the whole arena to hear and it's okay? I don't really know about that.
  6. There's no way that Benning could have seen the NHL shutting down and shortening the season. There's no way he could have seen Toffoli getting injured in Game 1 vs Minnesota and not playing yet during these playoffs. Besides, he had 10 points in 10 games and helped this team get to where they were before the shutdown. Not to mention he's still in the bubble, so they definitely think he will return soon enough.
  7. Canucks PP has been the difference in this series. 0/7 tonight. That's all, folks.
  8. During the Blues post-game interviews someone asked Pietrangelo...."How are you going to stop Bo Horvat?". Never been so happy to hear a question asked.
  9. I like Chatfield as a prospect but you have to think it'll very likely be Benn, if not Juolevi.
  10. The general consensus right now for sure is that Playstation 5 is the way to go . At least in general. Their release lineup of exclusives, plus unannounced exclusives that are obviously like God of War 2, etc are just far better than Xbox's showing. Then Xbox had the whole Halo Infinite thing happen where their gameplay looked like of bland and they delayed it. That's a major kick to the nuts for Xbox.
  11. I love how the commentating of Bo's first goal was just, "Bo Horvat...did that!". Dude didn't even know what to say.
  12. I'ma get my ass back in here and say that I've been on VHL for like 5 years and had a ton of fun. Used to be huge into EA Sports NHL GM modes and simming, and that's what had me try out VHL originally.
  13. That PP goal at the end was the best our PP has ever looked with this group. That was so clean. They did whatever they wanted. Granted, STL was frustrated and done at that point, but still. Also, Myers only had 1 penalty. We can celebrate that.
  14. You can play any PS4 game on the PS5. It's fully backwards compatible to PS4. Although you may know that already considering your question is a month old.
  15. The back to back thing isn't super relevant considering it's both teams. Zero travel, staying in the same city. Both teams are in the same boat.
  16. You can't base one playoff performance on everything. Even you should know that Allen not playing a game during the run doesn't mean he won't during this run. Both Binnington and Allen are great goaltenders. Whoever takes those reins and runs with them will get the starts. You're probably right, it will likely be Binnington. All I'm saying is that Binnington played like crap in their 2nd round robin game, so they played Allen in the 3rd one.
  17. Thought so? You never got an answer from me. It depends on who you think the backup is. St Louis is more of a 1A and 1B goalie type of team. Binnington has played twice the games, but has lesser numbers than Jake Allen during the season. Allen's 0.927 vs Binnington's 0.912 save percentage. Binnington played the first 2 round robin games. He played horribly in the second one against Vegas, so they went with Jake Allen against Dallas.
  18. Opinions aren't facts. What you say might be true, but it's all speculation.
  19. I mean, of all matchups, I really like this one. The reason I like it though is because they're the defending champs. Nobody is really expecting the Canucks to go anywhere far this year, so just using this as a measuring stick will be a great thing for our young team. If they manage to beat these defending champs, then even greater to have that boost of confidence moving forward. Canucks seemed to do fairly well against St Louis during the season for whatever reason. Dallas is one our team had a lot of problems with defensively. Although, St Louis is obviously built for the playoffs, and they had their amazing record this season without Tarasenko...and now they added him in. I don't really know what to think of STL's round robin games. They didn't win a single one. I didn't watch them, although reading comments from Blues fans has many of them thinking that Canucks will beat them. This is going to be interesting. STL is tough, but the Canucks showed against MIN that they won't back down and they will fight back physically.
  20. I don't think we should fire Green, and if we do, I don't think Babs is the answer.
  21. If I recall, they were injured a lot as well as underperforming. It's definitely a good story to talk about an 8th placer to win a cup, but LA was a cup favourite for a lot of people before the season started.
  22. I've done it where I stayed home on the PC and watched SportsCentre all day. There's really no point to it. Honestly, it's better just to go to school or work and then check all the trades later, or just look at them once they come in. Easier to do that than to stress over rumors and piles of people on CDC/the internet arguing them.
