Do you have an issue discussing Jake Virtanen in the Jake Virtanen discussion thread?

I am discussing him in his thread. I just have a different opinion of him than you do. I have never criticized his potential. I just find him very juvenile and frustrating.

He is the only player on this team that I have criticized. Get your facts straight.

Jake will get his chance.

I've believed in the guy since we drafted him, but if he's not ready to play then I'm glad he's getting the seat.

Be ready for your opportunity Tuna because you have so much potential to do damage in the playoffs.

We all want to see it.

His act? Are you talking about Jake the hockey player or what you see of him on social media?

Social media predominantly. Although, I also sense a lack of dedication to his craft. It’s really a shame......He has lot of natural ability.

Fair enough, we are all entitled to an opinion. Seems a little over the top to say "you cant stand the guy" based just on that though. Passion for the team sometimes makes us all a little unreasonable but it's worth keeping things in perspective.

Sorry, but that’s how I feel. He is just not a fit on my preferred team.

Not at all. I’m just curious why he says “he can’t stand Jake and It has nothing to do with hockey”. 

Sorry..I thought he was the supporters..didn't read his original message of hating Jake..haha.my bad.

 

But everyone has their own opinion on what they base it from. Some people base it from  his personality through media, some people base it on his looks, some people base it on his improving stats.

Only reason jake could be out is because ferland can do a better job if healthy. They have similar traits among them

Ferland is a LWer and Jake is a RWer. Not sure why they can't co-exist on the team. From the sounds of it MacEwen is the only real threat to Virtanen's spot in the lineup. Him and Eriksson I guess. Mr Little Things is all but guaranteed a spot in the lineup though. With Boeser and Toffoli that leaves Virtanen and Mac battling for that final spot. Miller, Pearson, Ferland, Roussel and Motte battling for the LW. Unless you are suggesting neither Mac or Virtanen make the starting roster. Which I'd be very mad if neither of them crack the final roster.

So did Goldobin. That got us nowhere. Sometimes, the player just doesn't get it.

 

I hope he is left off the opening roster, and I hope it pisses him off. So much so that his inner child rage rises up with a big "I'll show you, Mr. Meany Greeny" and he goes on a Calgary-era Ferland-esque tear.

I think that we may see a line of, Ferland - Gauds - Virtanen.  A line with scoring and physicality.  I think it could be good for Jake to play with Ferland.  B) Go :canucks: Go!! 

 

PS - Looking forward to seeing the game tonight. B)

Either quote the posts/posters that you think exhibit hatred towards any player otherwise shut your yap. No one here as far as I know was rioting so the riot had literally nothing to do with the rest of us. There is no such thing as "guilt by association", anyone who believes in it is either a moron or just being an a-hole. Either way their opinion is not important and I am not sure why any Canucks fan would repeatedly throw that in our face, which just makes me believe that you aren't really a fan and just another dull troll.

1 - Read 2 comments later and a guy literally said he hates him hahaha.

 

2 - Being unable to accept and denounce what happened and instead, flying off the handle. Thanks for the personal attacks. Not even gonna ask how you know who was and wasn't involved. 

 

3 - I'm excited to see Jake tonight in some game action so triggered people can move on with life.

Move on bud, doesn't really make sense why you are soooo defensive of the riot.

 

Virtanen is coming for that first line spot. Let's go!

 

Haha...ok bud. I like Virtanen but Toffoli and Boeser are both much better lol.

 

PS: JT Miller also says Hi!!

Lol I'm just trying to progress the conversation. Virtanen will have to wait till next season for potential top 6.

This could have a big impact on Jake, and I hope they do it.

 

I think maybe some feel he needs to be a protector type player, drop the gloves and beat on opponents, because he's got a little size and maybe he played that kind of game in Jrs. That's a lot of pressure for a kid, to have to stand up to the toughest players in the NHL night after night. Maybe Jake isn't a mean guy, maybe he doesn't really like to drop the gloves. I'm sure that's not why Benning drafted him at #6, to get into fights and hammer anyone and everything within range. Jake has skills. He's fricken fast, and has a lethal shot. Maybe playing him with Ferland would allow him to relax a bit, take the pressure off, and be more able to showcase his skills. Ferland's got skills too. :)

Those two around Gaudette would be a fun line.
