  1. Does anyone else remember McCann saying shortly after the draft that he felt he would only need one more year of junior before making the jump to the NHL? The kid called his shot. impressive!

    1. Robongo


      Sure do, now let's see if he can stick for the whole year!

    2. HerrDrFunk


      It is what it is :P

      I'm totally saying that everytime he scores too.

    3. Gstank29


      IF he calls his own shots then when he wants a contract in 3 tears he's not going to budge on how much he wants... It's not always a good thing

  2. Updated line up guess:

      Prab Rai is an hero.

    3. Salmonberries



      That's old school!

    4. wshdrvvn


      I think it could work. I think they would protect Vey from his lack of physicality.

  4. I'm boldly predicting the Canucks will not take a canadian born player in the first round. If Zboril isn't available, we're picking a 'Merican.

  5. Congrats to the comets for advancing to the conference finals. biggest challenge yet with Grand Rapids.

  6. In today's unsurprising news: Jordan Subban signs. now, what's the over/under on months til everyone panicking about not signing return to their roots of devaluing him because of his height?

      He might still grow.

      If you think otherwise, you're a racist

  7. Which pair of first round picks will be the most prolific Canucks? Baertschi/Jensen? Horvat/Shinkaruk? Or Virtanen/McCann?

      You're not even playing the game! which tandem? 2011? 2013? or 2014?

    3. Piggy Bank

      Piggy Bank

      2014 - only because my expectations are lower than that with the other guys

    4. Ghostsof1915


      Jake and Bo will rule them all.

  8. Trade values seem a little high today.. I hope we don't overpay for anything short term.

  9. Alex Biega just Lee Sweatt'd this game.

    1. Where's Wellwood

      Where's Wellwood

      I just hope he doesn't Lee Sweatt his career.

  10. Congrats to Ronalds Kenins on his first NHL call up! Really excited to see what he can do. A Kenins-Horvat-Kassian 4th line should be able to make some noise.

      Only noise Kassian makes is when he misses his check and slams into the glass

    3. Odd.


      Who the hell is Kassain Gstank? I've checked and Kassain doesn't have a contract with us.

    4. Mr.DirtyDangles


      Kassian is the physical manifestation of Horvats Alter hockey ego.

  11. feels good having 1st round picks and other good prospects actually playing on the farm. we haven't had that in awhile; excited to see what some of these guys do this year.

    1. Gstank29


      Not just first round prospects but GOOD first round prospects with high ceilings

      It's a process.

  12. Ok I have a theory. I'm sure everyone is familiar with hipsters. So, where I'm from, hipsters dislike widely accepted things just for the sake of being different. In Vancouver though, could people ask for stupid trades and such just to be "counter culture"?

      I used to be a hipster, but it got too popular and it's no longer cool.

      I feel like the definition of hipster changes on a daily. I've given up trying to understand it.

    4. Baka


      Hipsters who only do it with resentment suck. But hipsters who have a real desire for things different are pretty fun people who offer fun experiences

  13. to me, willie desjardins talks like he's trying to keep his teeth in. i respect that.

    1. viking mama

      viking mama

      LOL,..or he's fiddling with a piece of turkey caught between his teeth from the club sandwich he ate for lunch & trying to flush it out with his tongue & spittle.

    2. wshdrvvn


      it could of been cause he was upset with the outcome of the coyotes game i guess but during the pre-game presser you could clearly see his top row of teeth and in the post game they were no where to be found hahah he mighta needed a little fiddy-dent or something!

  14. on the sidebar of the sun, they had an article ad for "famous black men who only knock up white women". you'd think they wouldn't want that type of stuff on their page.
