  1. I still can't believe some wanted Demko to play B2B in the first week of the season
  2. Exactly why i put $$ down on them to win it all this year (don't tell the hockey gods)
  3. Same here... detroit closer than TO (and a whole lot cheaper for games). First Canuck game there I've missed in a decades. Go there for lots of concerts too.
  4. We still have a few starters missing and a lot of turnover (which is why i hated how Green ran the pre-season)
  5. Could you imagine the outrage if Demko tweak something playing back to back in week 1 of the season ?
  6. Not me.... need to use the tandem smartly. Halak is good and will be eager to play for his new team. Weak opponent (and missing Larkin).
  7. It's killing me i can't go to the game tmrw (live across the border from Detroit). First Canuck visit to Detroit i've missed in over a decade.
  8. Ha.... my wife walked by the room when he was on and her only comment was "i can't stand that haircut"
  9. The other stat i'd like to see is how often we take the games first penalty in the opening minutes. Seems we're always on our heels to start and take one.
  10. Playing his first game means he has proven nothing yet in the NHL. I think he's going to be great for us, but i think every rookie gets eased in somewhat until the coach sees them in real NHL action.
  11. Yep... i don't blame Green for wanting to see Podz earn some trust (which i think he did a bit tonight)
  12. Standings based (and they don't change over the off-season)
  13. What someone should sign for is always subjective and relative to their team's dynamics and not just who they consider their peers around the league. Players had to adjust their expectations for years after the salary cap was instituted. On top of that fans and teammate's opinions do have an influence.
  14. I booked the Canucks to win it all at 49:1 via sportsinteraction.com
  15. Damn i was all about to sign up and drop the same then realised its not for Ontario.
  16. Agree with this. If player wants to compete for the cup then dont hold out for more than 10% of the team's cap.
  17. It was a smart move too by JB to make the trade early enough so that he had the cap room ready to match if EP signed an offer sheet (Would've been under the gun to make space otherwise)
  18. Plus Petey's agent would basically be setting his other client QH up for either accepting a cheap bridge deal or sitting out for a trade
  19. I doubt it cause it'd be his new team (that he wants to be competitive) that would be giving up the additional 2 first rounders. Tricky things them offer sheets
  20. It was stunning last year how many odd man attacks and breakaways we gave up.
