Canucks First-Line (12/16)



  1. And maybe, just maybe, Juulsen will return to something close to the form he was showing prior to his injury issues with Montreal... regards, G.
  2. I regret that the team lost an asset which has the potential to become a viable NHL player (even as a 4th liner). Juolevi was traded for Juulsen who, if he makes it back to the NHL, will benefit the team. Gadjovich was just gone... Perhaps it was just a numbers game, or maybe the Canucks tried to trade Gadjovich and had no takers (which does not equal zero interest), and therefore it was assumed that he might successfully be slid through waivers. Oh well. regards, G.
  3. I believe @goalie13 has it. When this guy: ... was the coach of a team which had won the Cup for 4 years in a row (5 times in 8 years), players/hockey people tended to listen to him. Prior to winning those 4 Cups in a row, he was the coach of the expansion Blues, who were Cup finalists for 3 consecutive years under his leadership. A winner has the ear (and the respect) of most players. As with Bowman, Fred Shero had to establish himself as someone who had something to say, and a system which, if the team bought into it, then they might win it all. He had 13 seasons coaching in the Flyers' farm system before getting the head coach job in the NHL. As a 10 year NHL head coach, a Shero coached team only twice failed to make the playoffs, made the finals 4 times and won the Cup twice. Once you've got their attention, the rest is easier. regards, G. A long time ago a farmer wanted to buy a mule from his neighbor. He asked the neighbor if the mule had any problems. "Not a problem," the neighbor said. "This mule will do anything you ask. All you have to do is ask him nicely." The neighbor added, "Just make sure you never mistreat my mule." The price for the mule was fair, so the farmer bought the mule. The very next day the farmer wanted to plow his field. He hitched the mule to the plow. The mule had no intention of pulling that plow! The farmer said, "Git up!" But the mule paid no attention. The farmer tried talking nicely until his face almost turned blue. It did no good. So, he called his neighbor over. The neighbor came right away. When he heard the problem, he walked over and picked up a two-by-four. He hit the mule right in the head. Then he whispered in the mule's ear. That mule started plowing back and forth the field, turning the soil over without anyone standing behind the plow. "I thought you said never to mistreat your mule," stated the farmer. "You said all that I had to do was to talk nicely to him." "Well," answered the neighbor. "You just have to get his attention first before talking to him."
  4. Why shouldn't it? People are comparing Hughes' achievement to other guys who hit that 100 point total in their career.. Should we not talk about any other player who will (likely) surpasses Hughes in this achievement? I believe it is relevant to compare these two players, who were contenders for the Calder. Once again, I'm not taking anything away from Hughes (except in some other posters minds). Hopefully Hughes will score his next 100 points in even fewer games than it took him to get the first 100 (which would suggest team success). Maybe Hughes will even get to 200 points in fewer games than it takes Makar to get there. regards, G.
  5. Who cares? The comment to which I was responding was talking about a point plateau reached over a certain number of games. It was not discussing plus/minus, or any other stat which might put one player in a better light than another, therefore, in this instance your comment is not really relevant... and a more recent search shows Makar is currently -9, which doesn't change his total of points in X games. regards, G.
  6. While I do congratulate Hughes, it should be noted that he will soon have company in that "do it this century" club. Makar is sitting at 95 pts in only 104 games. regards, G.
  7. Come on now, can a guy help it if he gets deked out of his jockstrap? regards, G.
  8. Maybe he just needs to do a bag skate to get into the groove... regards, G.
  9. Yeah, (Queensreek" (as I used to call them to tease some folks who were fans). An underappreciated band. regards, G.
  10. Hmm, well the same might be said about the Canucks..... regards, G.
