Canucks Regular

Canucks Regular (9/16)



  1. As of last night, the Canucks have played 23 games with Tanev in the lineup this season and 24 games without Tanev in the lineup. With Tanev: 14-4-5 (71.7% P%), +5 goal differential (51-46; excluding empty net goals), goalie Sv% 93.2% Without Tanev: 8-15-1 (35.4% P%), -18 goal differential (56-74; excluding empty net goals), goalie Sv% 90.2% Canucks a top 5 team in the NHL with Tanev in the lineup, bottom 5 team without Tanev in the lineup. Stark contrast.
  2. Has to be born in 1996 or later. Demko was born in 1995 (December 8th). 24 days too old. http://www.iihf.com/fileadmin/user_upload/PDF/Sport/IIHF_Official_Rule_Book_2014-18_Web_V6.pdf

    Cole Cassels | C

    Richardson was our 2nd best faceoff guy this season (47.8%) and our best faceoff guy last season (55.2%). Since joining the Canucks, he's missed 46 regular season games and 1 playoff game due to injury, 38 of which were due to the foot injury he recently had surgery on. In his career, he's missed 82 games due to injury w/ 559 career games played. Cassels is under 50% in the OHL (though he seems to win the big draws) and Gaunce doesn't even play center at the AHL level, let alone at the NHL level. Quality analysis, though. You should be a GM some day.
  4. Possibly the worst reffed game I've seen in my life (Auger incident excluded). So bad ... I have no delusions that the Royals were going to win this series, but the refs shouldn't be making this into a possible sweep.
  5. The last place we should want one of our prospects is the gong show that is currently the Giants. Would much rather have him stay in Calgary or go to a proven program like Kelowna.
  6. 4 games ago, we basically needed to go 7-0-1 and hope the other teams went .500 or worse. They've gone better than .500 and we lost 2 in a row in regulation.
  7. I didn't say they can't be more, just saying that's what they are now (IMO, of course). Here's hoping the Giants get back in this series tonight with a win.
  8. I do cheer for the Royals and will do so tonight. I also used to go to a lot of Giants games when I was living in Burnaby 1/3 of the time from 2006-2010. Sorry, I didn't know I wasn't allowed to cheer for both teams or have an opinion, backed up by stats, on who the Canucks, my favourite NHL team, should draft. My bad ...
  9. Fistric was routinely a healthy scratch in Dallas and Edmonton, is currently averaging 15 minutes/game in Anaheim while playing half the games (34/67). He missed 6 games to injury, was a healthy scratch in the other 27 games. Am I undervaluing him by calling him a 3rd pair dman? If anything, that's overvalued. Franson is #4 in ES TOI/G in Toronto by a slim margin, gets the most PP time of any dman. He was #7 in ES TOI/G last year. Toronto almost let him go to Sweden because they didn't feel he was good enough defensively. So he's a #4/#5 and PP specialist on a team with a mediocre backend. Gallagher has basically spent all of his time on the 2nd or 3rd line in Montreal and is averaging 16 minutes/game alongside a couple others (which is upper-level 3rd line, lower-level 2nd line minutes). He's on pace for 44 points in 82 games, which is upper-level 3rd line, lower-level 2nd line production. My bad, he's a 2nd/3rd line tweener. So please elaborate on who I'm undervaluing. Brule who retired in his 20s? Bouma or Wright who are spare parts on non-playoff teams? Blum, who couldn't even crack the Wild's blueline and has cleared waivers several times this season? Machacek who hasn't played in the NHL for the last 2 years? The guys who've never played a game in the NHL? No surprise that you couldn't make even the slightest attempt at presenting an argument. Congrats on your lazy attack post.
  10. I hope the Giants pull off the upset over the Cheaterhawks, but the odds are stacked against them.
  11. That's not the way it works. If we were the 4th worst team in the league, we'd pick either 1st, 4th, or 5th.
  12. Habs fans totally aren't known for hyperbole. Diaz threw one bad pass which resulted in his teammate getting crushed and he was crucified for it.
