  1. After blowing a 2-0 lead against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 2, many Canucks fans are calling for the lines to be changed up, Michael Grabner be inserted into the top-six, or Pavol Demitra to be scratched. I beg to differ, I have full confidence in the first, second, and third Canucks lines. The Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, and Alex Burrows line's track record since January 2009 speaks for itself. The Pavol Demitra, Ryan Kesler, and Mikael Samuelsson line has potential to succeed. You have familiarity between Kesler and Demitra from the last half of the 2008-09 season playing with Sund
  2. Hey just wondering how do you add that pattern to your sigs

Icethetics is reporting Reebok indicates that the Canucks will not switch to their current third jersey as their home jersey next season as previously rumoured. It is also speculated that th
  4. It is bias against Grabner because everything points towards that direction. It isn't even about Grabner's play. It's about the circumstances that Grabner is in.
  5. I am not even critiquing Grabner's play, I am presenting the circumstances that Grabner is and was facing prior to the Anaheim game.
  6. I am 90% a believer, but there's 10% of me that is a non-believer because of how streaky he is. The problem with a third line role is that he has been getting 11 minutes a night, his ice time will probably go down to under 10 minutes a night. Kyle Wellwood had 7:48 of ice-time last night and only went over 10 minutes because of his time on the second power play unit. Hansen had 9:36 of five-on-five ice time and went over 10 minutes because he was on the penalty kill. Same goes for Mason Raymond, he was barely over 10 minutes at 10:38 in five-on-five ice time, and because of the penalty kil
  7. But with the depth the Canucks have, they don't need to be patient. But after a three goal outburst tonight, it does complicate things. Hat trick Sunday night too?
  8. Hahaha, pretty nice though how I write this blog before the game and making the suggestion that Grabner needs to score hat tricks in the remaining games to earn a spot and he does it. Why is that?
  9. It was a great shot by Grabner and I was celebrating when he scored, but that doesn't change my opinion that he's going to be back in the minors because he hasn't earned a top-six spot. Would be a bandwagonner if I did. Oh wow, one goal in eight games. He definitely earned a spot in the top-six over Demitra and Samuelsson.
  10. Briefly... Grabner is turning 23 on October 5 at which point he will become waiver eligible. The NHL schedule hasn't been released yet, so we don't know when training camp will end and when the regular season will start. If training camp doesn't end until after October 5, unless he completely sucks in training camp and gets cut early, he's pretty much will be here for the rest of the year because they Canucks won't waive him to get him down to the minors. So next year, he probably will not spend another year in the minors, will try to push for a top six spot, if he can't get a top-si
  11. The first one I wrote about Grabner was about the possibility of Grabner being traded. Regardless of how many games experience Grabner has, he has not earned the right to be in the top-six over Pavol Demitra and Mikael Samuelsson. I didn't even critique Grabner's play, I simply stated the facts about his play. So I don't know how you are getting the impression that I expect him to be the next Crosby. Horrible, because I speak the truth about Grabner that he will be back down in the minors. I don't know how anybody could say Grabner has earned a spot, most of you have a spot on hi
  12. After a strong nine game performance in November before injuring his ankle in a pre-game soccer warm up, there were high hopes that Michael Grabner would come back better than ever in his second call up and earn a full-time NHL roster spot. The hope was that Grabner could form a formidable second line with fellow speedsters Mason Raymond and Ryan Kesler which would forcibly free up Mikael Samuelsson and Pavol Demitra to form a third scoring line with Kyle Wellwood in the middle. <img src="http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2009/10/oct1409_grabner_rr.jpg" class="imageFloatLeftFr
  13. Referring to your question on my topic which i for whatever reason cannot reply to YES you can jailbreak 3.1.3. For certain iPod Touch/iPhone models.

    P.S. - YouTube is your friend.

    Who's that new gross chick at the bottom of your sig?

  15. Hordichuk's no super heavyweight like Derek Boogaard, probably a light heavyweight at best because of his size (6'1"), but at the very least he won't get pummeled. Derek Boogaard drove Ryan Kesler's head into the glass. Yeah, you think Rypien or Glass are going to grab Boogaard from behind and slam him onto the ice. I don't think so. I wonder if Rypien will even reach that high or even manage to pull Boogaard at all. Interesting that on hockeyfights.com, they called this a win for Boogaard. Hordichuk's the only one that landed any shots.
