  1. Back to wearing my Edler jersey! Heck, I’ll sleep in it if it helps to keep him healthy & the points coming. If this season is his last hurrah as a ‘Nuck, I hope Eddie will finish it strong!  

  2. I think all the luck has gone out of my Edler jersey. How long before Elias Petterson shows up? Onto Montreal...Odin please help Tanev ..Go Canucks Go!

  3. I think Burr & Hansen will be as essential & inspirational to their new teams in these play-offs, as Dale Weise was to the the "Habs" in their infamous run & series vs the Bruins, after Tortorella demanded he be traded away from us. Character guys make an impact whenever they're needed. We can still admire our quality Canucks-veterans, from afar & continue to salute them as "Forever Canucks".

      Yes indeed. Let's hope Edler can do the same for some eastern outfit, next season!

  4. Honey Badger! Another Forever Canuck! Gone at least one year, too soon! Happy trails to you, Jannick Hansen! Canucks Nation will always be there to salute, thank, & cheer for you in whatever venue you may find yourself playing in. Godspeed to the Cup in 2017, make it so!

      Thanks Hansen, and you're more than welcome back when you become a UFA. :)

  5. Mourning the departure of Burrows, today. Godspeed on your way to the Stanley Cup that inexplicably eluded you here. Best wishes, much love & gratitude to you Burr, from Canucks' Nation here & where ever you may find us in VanCity, Ottawa or around the world!

      Sharks have to win to be best for us. Not liking that since I hate the beards

      Yah - and just heard that conditional pick for Hansen will be a 1st rounder not a 4th - if the Sharks win the Cup...that makes it very nice indeed. Canucks Nation has to cheer for the Sharks in 2017 now. 

    3. viking mama

      But the 1st round pick in 2017 would be late in a rather weak draft year,...so is it really a home run? No - not really. I will still miss the Honey Badger like crazy & I think the Canucks will really miss his particular brand of mentorship, too.

  6. Loui Eriksson's goal song should be "Louie Louie" by the Kingsmen, a natural choice seeing as he's playing on the triple-crown-line. Can I get an "amen" or another alternative please?

      He looks so much like Christian Bale..

       

      So maybe first goal: Louie Louie; second goal: Batman theme

       

      Compromise.

      Waiting to see what DJ does tonight. That's if - I dont lose the back deck & part of my roof along with power tonight. Feeling a guilty about not doing those renos in the off-season, now. :unsure:

  7. Anyone started a Rio Olympics thread yet? First event out of the gate is women's soccer Canada vs Australia, live now! So, where's the chatter about this one?

      Completely forgot the group stage started before the opening ceremony. 

       

      It was pretty ugly, but they got the job done.

  8. Hey Jim! Don't want or need Milan Lucic on my Vancouver Canucks,..there's just too much bad history under the bridge and witnessed patterns of behavior in this player that go totally counter to the culture of 'good character'  that I've been proud to support here. Just say 'NO' & let Looch continue to be himself & a diminishing asset elsewhere. Thanks!.

      I'll hold onto my investment in these HOF Sedins & their very generous philanthropic ways to better the conditions of children & their families everywhere...over the oafish behaviors Looch demonstrates on and off of the ice - anyday! Somedays good guys finish 1st. Those victories are the best!! You can have an edge without being an idiot. Gudbranson seems to be that! Looch has simply been entitled for too long to change. Better find himself another league-enabled team to continue his schtick before the progressives take over, post-Bettman, & eradicate his kind altogether.

      I think you are going to be disappointed, viking mama.
      I agree with your sentiment. But I have been bracing myself ever since talks broke down between Lucic and Kings.

      ^ Looch a Canuck?! It's akin to Messier as a Canuck! Never, ever, should have happened!!! On so many different levels it was a colossal affront to the team, the layers and their entire fan-base. I have embraced former rivals before. Dave "Tiger" Williams, Tim Hunter, Esa Tikkanen,...but some players have history that runs too deep & character too warped to embrace. Messier & Lucic are in that category for me. I would expect Trev to perceive this fact, even if Jimbo can't.

  9. O'Halloran is a part of the crew royally-botching another one in a So-Cal's team's favor... in DET this time. When we hear the crowd a-hollarin'...we know it's O'Halloran!

      ANA is being gifted.

  10. Since someone must win in Alberta tonite....make it the Oilers &.no OT please! Damn you RNH...why do you not have your eyes on the puck with 3 min to go!

      Just had to watch Kassian's HNIC debut with is 'newest' team since his return. And it"s OT....ugh!

    2. MedicineHatCanuck

      MedicineHatCanuck

      Kassian has played 15 mins in both games. 4 shots and 6 hits. Even just looking at him he seems like he is doing a lot better

      EDM beats CGY...but I should have asked the Stars to win over the Sharks instead.Sigh.

  11. @mikeburn re: Cody Hodgson -Remember those very heated & strongly worded conversations of 3+ yrs ago? Told ya so!!! Yah - that felt good.

  12. Seems comments by a FLA Panther were not 'sister' or SC/SC-ring related, but something far worse. Post-game fly by the Panther bench & angry-librarian glance at the offender was high-road behavior correction at its best. Perfect response! Poor of  these delusional Sedin-maligners (Potvin) to see it otherwise.

      Lu realized later why Dorsett went at the Panthers and he wasn't happy about it.

      Well now I want to read this stuff. Where'd this info come from?

      Dosrset went after the Panthers who were squirting their water bottles at the Sedins. How & where did he respond to that later?. He did not respond that way to the media post-game. He definitely should correct himself publicly there too. That'd earn him better points.

  13. Seriously... does anyone else here think that Justin Trudeau looks a little bit like Andy Kaufman with a GQ makeover??? I can't shake the thought...LOL.

      He's got Mick Jagger's hair.  Think about that one for a minute.

  14. After 3 disallowed goals,..Miller's post-game comments were bang-on. Hansen & the Canucks were wronged by the NHL's war room, again. Even with the technologies available, the bias/ subjectivity of cleverly appointed-persons will be awarding or taking-away points in this league.

      bahahahahaha man stop, Nick Kyperos is your source! come on man!

    3. viking mama

      viking mama

      Not my source...that would be Miller. Do ya trust his evaluation after seeing replays? Just sayin' - that even an anti-Canuck like Kypper has relented on air to say,..in Hansen's case,..it was a goal. The others on the panel were ambivalent. How does the war-room get it wrong. Seeded bias. Asking that they - fix that

      I thought it was a 50/50 but the clowns on CBC did a great job saying it was a kicking motion (craig simpson at it again) I personally thought it could of been a redirection or a kicking motion.

  15. Elliotte Friedman continues to make a statement by wearing his wife's or daughter's socks. Thanks Elliotte. Whenever I get bored with the crew's comments,... I just glance at the socks & smile.
