Comets Star

Comets Star (6/16)



  1. This is what the people who said OJ was a better fit with Myers meant.
  2. I agree, I was expecting/hoping he came in with improved movement and speed with more time to heal the injury.
  3. Lockwood's outplayed all of them imo. Gadjovich has showed well however. For both situations, I believe the PK will play a major factor.
  4. Olli was our best LD tonight imo. Good to see him progressing after a poor start to training camp.
  5. Juolevi was the best LD tonight over Rathbone and Hunt. Am I wrong?
  6. I'm the biggest Olli guy but he's gotta come in more prepared than that. Shouldn't have vets yelling at you to get up.
  7. Or you know, using a balance of both analytics and the eye test to find the most effective conclusion instead of fully discrediting one method would be more credible. As mentioned above by some, analytics is at an early stage in hockey and is progressing. It isn't perfect, but there are many helpful stats that can give vital information to certain aspects of a players game.
  8. For sure, I think he definitely could be a solid 6/7 on a non-playoff team. Unfortunately for him, we have a lot of depth at LD this year so I doubt he gets any games.
  9. In his Athletic article, Drancer mentioned Benning and Greener both believe in Olli. Internally they hope his play will improve as the impacts of his injuries fade away. But Fred may have better internal connections than the Canucks media does
  10. Olli on 650: - Some parts of his game he wanted to be better last season - Feels he showed he can play in the NHL and is now ready to take the next step - Jim and Travis want Olli to be stronger and faster - Role is more 2 way defender, different from when he was younger and looked at more of an offensive d-man - Wants to be part of the team as it becomes a winning team moving forward - Does a lot of on-ice and off-ice drills to work on speed - Missed a lot of time on the ice when he was injured - Can't wait to play games in front of fans - Not really active on social media, teases Elias that he's a "fashion guy" on IG - Spent the whole year alone in North America last year - Likes how close the city is to the mountains - Wants to stay in Vancouver and stay with the team - Wanted to get the contract done and focus on his play this year - Believes he can bring something else to the team, proved he can play good defence and play against bigger/stronger guys
  11. The difference between his offensive outputs the last two seasons is confusing
  12. I think another cool thing we could do is run two different power play structures and make it more difficult for teams to plan against us. Miller Boeser Petey Hughes OEL Podkolzin Garland Horvat Hoglander Rathbone Pearson can sub in for Podkolzin if he has a difficult time translating his game right away. I would keep Myers away from the power play to better manage his minutes.
  13. Quite a few of those players won't be back by the time everything is set and done. How I see the roster currently: Miller Petey Boeser Hoglander Horvat Garland Pearson Dickinson Podkolzin Motte - 4C - Lockwood Highmore Macewen Hughes - 1RD OEL - 2RD Juolevi/Rathbone - Myers Juolevi/Rathbone Demko Backup G Some more work left to be done via trades and free agency.
  14. Canucks 7 forwards are likely Pettersson, Boeser, Horvat, Miller, Pearson, Dickinson and Motte. Lind, Highmore and Gadjovich will likely all be exposed.
  15. Canucks will be protecting 7-3-1. You cannot switch Myers out for Lind.
