(proposal) FLYERS-CANUCKS- adding grit,size and fighters

Recommended Posts

Regardless if we get Doan or we Doan't, The Canucks are going to get tossed around again next year, its the best and maybe only way the canucks can be stopped. As an elite team for the last 2-3 years, other teams , study and learn how we play and have found weaknesses. It’s very apparent that the Vancouver Canucks are a team that prefer to beat their opponents on the scoreboard rather than on the ice. Even Daniel Sedin acknowledged there are teams “who think they can get us off our game” by running players.

No more turning the other cheek or complaining to the ref , ITS TIME TO FIGHT BACK. We need the players to be accountable for there actions. We need teams to be scared of playing us, not the other way around. keep the top 6 the way it is. Im talking about the supporting cast. Max ,Higgins and Hansen have played extremely well together and are a great shut down line , but there not scaring anybody away. I think we need to trade for some fighters, not Goons that cant skate but guys that can forecheck ,hit and fight
