Comets Regular

Comets Regular (5/16)



  1. Mitchell wins for me. His stick was unrivaled, so many shots deflected up and out, or would strip a guy on the rush. His physicality was amazing, especially a play I recall where he came out of the penalty box after a Hawks PP and checked Toews into next week. Tanev was an absolute warrior as well, but Mitchell I think was more effective overall, and this team sorely misses a player like that.
  2. Just saw a comments on twitter, where someone said JP Barry mentioned Petey is looking for term and 10+M per season.  Am I in the minority that doesn't like those figures?  He's had injury history already, so I seriously question that amount.  Personally, I think a bridge under 8M should be answer, and if there is term, nothing over 9.

      Pettersson should be getting the Sebastian Aho contract at this stage.  Aho is better than Petey right now but Aho grosses more of his salary due to him living in Carolina.  8.45 million per year for 6 years (or whatever Aho is earning) is a fair deal.

      @Patel Bure IMHO 7ish range is more than fair. Barzal is often the comparison, and I think Pettersson's better, although he has injury concerns.

      I found that Boeser has played well this past season regardless of who he plays with, so I think that should be considered.

      If I had to take a guess, 7.5 to a max of 8 is what Pettersson should get.

      @Dazzle - agreed.  My hope is that both Petey and Quinn get a 7 million bridged deal similar to Tkachuk, Barzal, and Werenski’s original deal I believe.

  3. I appreciate where you are coming from, but my immediate thought is.. why not both? Quinn already creates such a threat when he's on the ice, if we have another threat in our arsenal, this team gets much more lethal. The last decade has had us riddled with sub par basic d-core, no offense to a few, but this new style is so much more dynamic and fluid. Its amazing to watch and if Rathbone is 3/4 the player Hughes is, having both of them is going to be pretty damn amazing.
  4. Hughes currently has 1 more point in 5 less games, and doesn't come with the on ice issues that Tkachuk causes on the daily. Canucks could have had him, passed, and rightfully so, he isn't a Canuck in terms of what he brings.
  5. Ok, 2 very gutsy wins in a row, anyone keep track of the record without Petey, seems to be well above .500

      It's pretty impressive how we've managed without him, hopefully he can completely recover and join us at some point

      Horvat with Hoglander and Pearson is a pretty deadly line now, with Petey back, that gives Green two really good looking lines.  Podz will have to do some heavy lifting to crack the top 6 next year.

      With the Laffs goaltending, Thomas Gradin, Stan Smyl & Curt Fraser could've come out of retirement & be our 1st line and there's a good chance we still would've won.:lol:

  6. Claim him, we need the depth for team covid
  7. No way I'd trade both Horvat and Miller. Miller (although isn't one) is one of our better centers, and Bo is a beast on the draw, this would kill our depth. You are also trading away the two leaders in our group that you would hope would show Eichel the ropes as he is showing he needs that. As enticing as it is, I don't see him coming here because it would cost too much, and I'm not convinced he would replace the points needed.
  8. Got a better idea!! We flip you to the Sabres for a closet Canucks fan of theres
  9. Hate seeing people lose their job, but i find walker so very negative. Great change overall, happy to hear it!
  10.  Let just finally lose the "bubble" terminology and agree he is Demko.  This guy is lights out

  11. Virtanens best game this year?

    1. Phil_314


      Best play off the rush in his season so far.

    2. Pears


      That’s what you would call an effective 7 minutes

      Yeah, probably. Although that’s not saying much. 

  12. Its a tradeoff. Top defenceman for points right now too. I don't put this entirely on him, I do question defensive coaching of entire team, although i'd admit tonight was better.
  13. I refuse to believe Montreal is that good, this looks to me like a confidence and belief issue for the Canucks.

      The historical record is heavily hurt by the 70s, especially the first four years when Vancouver was in the east and got regularly slaughtered by Lafleur, Schutt, Robinson, etc.

      BTW, in case you want to see our head to head against all teams:


    4. Coconuts


      It'd be interesting to see an more in depth look at those matchups, say.. how we've lined up against them since 1990.

  14. Agreed, and some guys should take notes from Hoglander, because jesus is he hard to knock down.
  15. JT Miller plays a heavy game, not quite power foward, but he can lay the body, same with MacEwen. This team is showing they can punish by committee. Even Petey has been chippier this year and standing his ground.
