  1. I'm from the U.S. not sure where you got that information on BLM there...
  2. I would imagine Podz has gotta make the team at this point.

      Oh for sure.  Pods is the type of player who can play on any line, and in any role.  He basically carried his line tonight.

      I wouldn't be surprised if Green sends him down to the AHL. I really don't like how he's been handling his players this preseason.

      Jett Woo has barely been given time to play and he's been overplaying Rathbone.

      Hilarious. 7 PPs and Rathbone plays more minutes than Juolevi, who's been nearly 5 minutes penalty killing. :lol:

      Don't understand why so many fans are hellbent on forcing him into the day 1 NHL lineup. It won't hurt for him to get his legs under him in the AHL. If he plays very well for the remainder of the preseason then sure but right now, it's just 1 good exhibition game.

  3. Ryan is Marty's son and both Hughes are brothers too. Very cool!
  4. I read a Russian interview he did where the interviewer confronted him about the $5M a year rumors and he shot them down saying that he’s realistic with what his value is. He also gives insight into what MacKinnon is like as a player in Colorado. The guy is a beauty, wish we could’ve gotten him instead.
  5. Yes that's why he's not with the organization anymore and I'm replacing him When do I start?
  6. Watched Fabbro back when he was playing for BU. I posted about how Keller and McAvoy were stand outs while Fabbro had lots left to be desired back then as well. I should replace Brackett
  7. Lol Virtanen is way closer to an eclair than Leclair.
  8. Probably not gonna make the show but always liked Brad Morrison when he was playing juniors. Fun guy to watch.
  9. Even draft position aside, he's been horrible. Doesn't do what a third liner is supposed to do, and I'm not convinced his recently improved form is going to be consistent. If he does better elsewhere it's not because we didn't give him a chance.
  10. Jason Robertson is underrated

  11. I dont know but he had more points in his rookie season than Jake ever did in any season
  12. What? That would've been affordable for us wouldn't it?
  13. Wow Calgary signing all our players. Who's the farm team for who?
  14. What happens to his caphit?
  15. I am still surprised with the amount of people still claiming he was just looking down as he was clearly looking at the ipad. It's even shown in the video?
  16. If this year's draft used standings from the season before, would you defer our first round pick or use it?

      no you have it wrong goalie13

      if nucks miss the playoffs the pick stays

      so you are missing all the points of the question


      if the nucks have an option

      i say they use the pick asap

      and happily give up the pick next off season

      team is on the upswing

      and using the pick now only strengthens the team a year early

      @coastal.view, unlike the Gretzky thing, I think I have it right this time.  

      From CapFriendly "*Conditions: If the Canucks do not make the playoffs in 2019-20, the 2020 1st round pick will transfer to a 2021 1st round pick instead."


      Either way, they can't choose to defer.  It's entirely based on where they wind up in the standings.

      though we speak the same language

      we are speaking it differently

      but not worth debating further


  17. Definitely an overestimate, he’s like 5’7 if you ever see him walking around Boston. Same with Gaudreau, he’s only 5’9 with skates on.
  18. Same amount of points as Phil the Thrill in less games. I've converted and am now a member of the Church of Virtanen. Someone baptize me please.
  19. Sadly the whole team had a short run of being the top players that they were. Had they held out their peaks for even 2-3 more seasons we'd at LEAST be looking at another cup final.
  20. Woah this is really cool, who was number 1? Dahlin is also a really consistent point getter, he's not gonna front load the season with points and tail off either.
  21. Not satisfied with playing time in the AHL and went back to Sweden just to play in the SHL? I guess this kid really knows what's best for his career. edit: just to NOT play in the SHL.
  22. You're not wrong- and not to single any player(s) out, but that's on the shooter for not finishing those chances/creating a shot for a rebound or on Freddie for making a good save. The team as a whole still played really well and equalled their moments in controlling the puck in the Leaf's defensive end, and we were able to create chances off of Toronto's failed breakouts and turnovers on top of that. Sure Matthews might have deked around a player here and there, but I honestly expected a lot more considering the quality of their forwards. You have to expect those players being able to make those plays here and there every night. Not even taking into account that they have expensive quality wingers and even double stacking their top centers at during different shifts.
