  1. The NHL website writers never cease to amaze me at their anti-Canucks bias. Last week I was shocked to see they had listed Markstrom as only the 13th best goalie in the post-season. But now they have put out an article about the top 16 centers in the post-season and Petey didn't even make the list. What kind of mockery of the sport is this?

      The fact that they only mentioned his pending UFA status in Marky's description compared to guys like Bishop leading their teams on playoff runs YEARS ago shows how much depth/ substance (or lack thereof) their posts contain.  Hard to even get mad anymore.

      For the center list, Connor/ Sid/ Mackinnon (top 3 centers in the league without question) Bergeron (elite two-way play speaks for itself)/ Draisaitl (Art Ross winner)/ Malkin (championship pedigree)/ Matthews (Leafs love speaks for itself)/ O'Reilly (can see him getting favored due to last year's championship) are without question above Petey and that's nothing against him.  

      He should belong readily among the likes of Stamkos, Schiefele, Tavares, Barkov, Zibanejad, Toews, Backstrom and Couturier though.  For what it's worth he ranked #18 in the official list behind Aho, and was as high as #11.

      I strongly disagreed with their Markstrom rankings, but I could see a better argument for Petey outside of the top 16. There are a lot of really good centres in the NHL.

  2. Victor Olofsson is out 4-6 weeks with injury. Likely turns the calder into a two horse race between Hughes and Makar. We're in for a wild finish.

      I know everyone loves Makar's offence, but Hughes is pretty clearly the better d-man and is pulling more weight on his team. That probably won't matter but Hughes is the more complete player.

      Unless Hughes heats up in a big way it'll probably be Makar. They're pretty damn close but I could see Makar being the sexier pick playing with Mac and all that. 

       

      If Hughes makes the all-star team that might sway things a bit.

      According to reddit the fanbases of the Flyers, Leafs and Blues are all voting Hughes. I'd be shocked if he didn't get in.

  3. Hoglander leading the World Juniors in points. And lacross goals. What a beauty.

  4. It appears that Jason Botchford has passed away? That's extremely sad news if true. Wasn't a huge fan of his reporting, but I liked reading the Provies now and then.

      Wasn't really a fan but it's still sad. He was fairly young. 

  5. *Spoilers* - Mildly disappointed with last nights GOT episode. My two key complaints are:

     

    1) The cinematography sucked. Everything was way too dark and it was difficult to actually see what was going on. I get that it was at night and a snowstorm, but they really should have turned the brightness up a little.

    2) Not enough main character deaths. The plot armor has thickened too much on these characters and it seems now that HBO has left Martin's written story behind, they have also left behind his willingness to kill of key characters. I feel it was a missed opportunity.

      @Tre Mac - We were watching on the official HBO channel through Shaw and basically couldn't see $&!# for the first 45 minutes until the fight moved into Winterfell itself. Basically everything outside of the walls and in the sky were a black screen with torches and dragonbreath spewing across it. I don't know why you had such a different experience, but it was pretty brutal to watch. I checked out a few streams of it today to see if it was a TV issue, and the streams were worse. I couldn't even tell who was undead and who was alive in the episode until they moved indoors. Again, I can understand how that may sound like a neat idea when writing the episode, but as a viewer it sucked.

       

      @DonaldBrashear - I agree that perhaps my expectations were too high, but I honestly thought this episode was below even the Battle of the Bastards episode as far as cinematography goes. It wasn't even the storyline itself which was my biggest gripe with last night's episode, but rather the lack of brightness. Sure, I have a few gripes with the story and would have liked to see more deaths, but I'll reserve final judgement on that until the rest of the season plays out.

  6. I feel physically sick for Vegas. I'd be beyond choked if that call was made against the Canucks and cost them their season. That was an indefensibly terrible call and those referees should be ashamed. I fully acknowledge that Vegas had other opportunities to win the series without it coming down to the wire like this, but that doesn't make that call any less awful. For what was such an entertaining game to watch, that was a terrible game for the sport of hockey.

      I hope this game serves as a catalyst towards finally holding problem officials accountable.  There are a lot of guys currently employed by the NHL who lack the professionalism necessary to officiate at any level.

      Call him up when Sutter gets back. Gauds can go down and play bigger minutes and get his offensive game going.

       

  9. By 2084, the Canucks rebuild will be nearing completion.

  10. This pre-season has been so abysmal that I'm already counting down to the 2019 draft. This season looks like its off the rails before the regular season even begins.

      I’m expecting the Canucks to be bad, so I’m hoping Joe Thornton and Erik Karlsson can win a Stanley Cup together.

      Someone like Cozens, Dach, Suzuki, or Krebs should be available at 5th overall.

      First rebuild year without the sedins, will be tough but it will be about small victories. Top 10 of the draft looks good this year as well.

      I think he's still concussed.  Nike supports CK because, despite their human rights history, they're still not bigoted pieces of garbage to the same degree as the people moaning about the ad.

  12. Benning has multiple personality disorder. How can he preach about getting younger, faster, and more skilled at the draft every year and then drop 10 million a couple days later on old, slow, grinders.

    I don't get it.

    This guy goes from zero to hero to zero every single year.

      EP, Bo, Brock, can't do it all.

       

      You needs some grit and toughness as well. 

       

      It puts pressure on existing players to get better or you're on the trading block. 

       

      Still lots of jobs available.

      I'm calling this my "asset management"  lineup.  Gaunce is the main one being exposed to waivers (Boucher, Kero, Sautner, McEneny as well but that's what AHL depth is)

      Baertschi Horvat Boeser
      Leipsic Sutter Eriksson
      Roussel Beagle Virtanen
      Goldobin Schaller Granlund
      Gagner    
           
      Edler Tanev  
      Del Zotto Gudbranson
      Pouliot Stecher  
      Hutton Biega  

       

      Only Boeser in that lineup is waiver exempt.  That means if we want Pettersson, Juolevi, Gaudette (or anyone else) in the lineup someone is either getting traded or put on waivers.  Not impossible, but also not much value there.  My guess is Pettersson makes the jump and the Canucks ditch Goldobin for a 6th or 7th round pick.

      @Wilbur - That line-up is a 31st place finish waiting to happen. That second line is a 3rd-4th line on a playoff team. That third line is a medicore 4th line on a playoff team. That 4th line is an AHL 1st/2nd line. 

       

      I don't understand how they preach about making space for our rookies and then they literally fill all the holes with aging veterans. 

      The "protect the young kids with grit" mantra only makes sense if THE KIDS ARE &^@#ING PLAYING. Like what the hell? That line-up doesn't even contain Juolevi who needs to make the jump this year or he's verging on bust territory. Pettersson, Dahlen, Gaudette, and perhaps even Hughes should be given space if they show well at the prospect tournament. So why the hell sign so many old grinders? Makes no sense.

  13. Going to the last home game on April 5th versus Arizona. Not only could it be one of the biggest games of the season, it could be the Sedins last game in the NHL. 
     

    I either get to watch my first win at Rogers Arena, or I get to watch the tank continue.


    Win/Win.

      @Ghostsof1915 - For the Arizona game? Upper bowl corners are showing $33 and $37 for me on the ticketmaster link off of this website. I got upper bowl center for $72.

  14. Pettersson just became the highest scoring U20 player in SHL history. And he now leads the SHL in points.

     

    Can you believe he's a Canuck?
