  1. Said it when he was drafted, said it when first saw him play and will say it again - this kid is a bonafide NHL talent with potential to be a top 6 fixture for ANY team in the league. He plays like Horvat but with better hands and more speed. He will be a fan favourite out of the gate and drive a lot of other teams nuts with his aggressive and relentless play. He plays clean and hard versus dick moves that some guys in league seem to think necessary to be considered "tough". Looking forward to seeing him in the smaller NHL rinks where his game will go to another level. He is also
  2. It is far from a "no brainer" as there may be a LOT of things in play including Ian's preference. He is a great coach but a very quirky guy and he may already want to try something different. I find it amusing how many "experts" seem in the media seem to think it is always so easy to make things happen in professional hockey OR that if something doesn't happen the way they want it to, clearly either the GM is a moron or the owner in meddling. Yes, owners want teams to fail and GMs don't want success .....
  3. Nope, you can buy and we can start the night at Mekongköket but Tik's has better food (pre COVID anyway....not sure if they can still do buffet now)
  4. Did ages ago. When are you going to join me there for you to pay for my drinks?
  5. I just don't think Toronto can win when it matters with that lineup. I think they will likely dominate regular season but once the going gets tough, just shrink in stature.
  6. Cool, good inside info. Any other gems from the locker room you seem to either have bugged or from hanging out with the team?
  7. The bar you have is more your problem than the reality of the player. The Canucks have only had a small playoff sample in that time in what could at best be considered an "odd" scenario. Anyway, you have written him off so that's fine. Curious why you would then continue to discuss him?
  8. If it wasn't a serious situation one could be tempted to say a "heart condition" is why LE is no longer in the NHL too.
  9. See, any other 3rd or 4th line kid would get "he scored 18 goals with lesser minutes and non-offense oriented linemates/situations" but you talk about weaker d pairings. He is what he is but the kid keeps having to live up to a different bar it seems. In today's NHL, 18 goals (projected over 20 over a full season) have you in top six or knocking at the door in terms of production for many, many teams. There is more than just goals to the equation for sure. I personally don't think he is ready for a top line assignment but I also don't think he isn't suited to a top six
  10. Edmonton was dominated in their first home game of the season in a building where they had to watch the Canucks play more than a month after they were pushed out of it last summer. If the Oilers had not come out like their very lives depended on that game it would have been shocking. Canucks looked like a team that was happy with the split and the last 30 minutes of the game were willing to move forward and get on with South Alberta.
  11. You are judging that one a two-game sample in a very odd year at best? Give the guy at least a few more games before you condemn him. Based upon that two game sample you could draw all sorts of conclusions, good or bad, on almost any player that is not aligned with reality but with Jake people seem to be ready to draw a negative one.
  12. Bet you are a hit with the women......
