  1. My vote was for Petey. His shot is better, and defensive game is better. I think he thinks the game a bit better than Jack. Jack's game is based alot on his speed. Once that goes, Petey will more likely still be dominant while Jack is not. Who know though. One injury away can kill everything.
  2. I have more faith in Silovs, but I believe Martin and Silovs split time during the Abbotsford playoffs, so the team didn't just rely on Silovs at the end, and had faith in Martin. Hopefully he'll play well enough as a backup that this won't be a talking point.
  3. I don't think this is true at all. In the off-season, coaches aren't even allowed to be on the ice with their players, so it's all up to the players to organize something. Too many things that go into organizing practices together with everybody. I'm sure if the players really wanted to be in town and start together they could, but that would be on the leadership group to organize something.
  4. Shows how fans just look at "what have you done for me lately" way of looking at things. Martin the previous season was undefeated in regulation. But I guess he was brutal that year too according to you. Martin was decent until he was thrust into the starting job last season. He was overplayed and his play suffered. I think he will be fine as a regular backup. We just can't count on him if Demko goes down with an injury.
  5. Is the scoreboard thing really on the canucks organization? I think it's more on the company installing it. I'm pretty sure if the organization was the laughing stock of the league, nobody would want to come play here, yet players are signing without getting paid premium salaries too, the last couple of seasons.
  6. Potentially, yes a better top 4, but Mukh hasn't even played in the NHL yet. So can't really count him. Also McCann and Forsling were both gone from the teams that acquired them.
  7. Interesting .... How many of those players/picks are still on that team though.
  8. I'm sure it's not about building one, it's more of owning the land, and the building when it's built.
  9. Here is the actual question and answer. Instead of parts taken away to fit that author's narrative. I suggest you read the source article instead of just this person's article which was skewed, IMO. Sportsnet: You said at the end of last season that you wanted players to return to Vancouver by mid-August and start skating together. That didn’t really happen. Obviously, it works against you that the Canucks do not have a practice facility, but are you disappointed there weren’t more guys in town? Tocchet: It's a great question because it's give and take, right? We don't have a practice facility (and) Rogers Arena was under construction. There's a lot of things that we just don't have, so I can't really blame the players. But saying that, I think there's, like, seven guys in skating now. And next week, I think we're going to have 25 guys. I want to give kudos to the players because I know the leadership really banded together to get guys to come back. And next week, after Labour Day, I think we're going to have at least 20 to 25 guys skating. And that's a big win for me. I can't be disappointed players were not here in mid-August because they probably had a facility or something where they were. We're working on that as an organization. We want players to stay and train under our umbrella, under our roof. The best teams do that.
  10. I think you need to read the actually Q&A. I never took RT's answer as calling out ownership. Is he disappointed that the canucks don't have a practice facility like other organizations do? Ya, for sure. But he's not calling them out, and instead is saying that they're working on it so that they get one.
  11. The quote we're working on that as an organization to me means that the Canucks organization is working on getting a practice facility or doing something about it. Not throwing ownership under the bus like you are trying to suggest with your topic header.
  12. The article you posted conveniently keeps out this line. I can't be disappointed players were not here in mid-August because they probably had a facility or something where they were. We're working on that as an organization. We want players to stay and train under our umbrella, under our roof. The best teams do that. This is them trying to put a narrative out there .... You fell for it. RT isn't throwing ownership under the bus.
  13. We don't need a new thread for this, you could have put this under the real article is what I'm getting at.
  14. I love watching Dangle when the leafs lose!
