mmm ya but if hes back with hitmen next yr he will still be under utilized if im canucks i give him 9 game audition then send him back to junior only if. hitmen trades him to kelowna or portland where they play him 23 mins a game

Most/all of their over agers should be gone next year which will hopefully equate to Virtanen getting an expanded offensive role but we'll see what happens...

Im a huge Virtanen fan.

But does anyone else find it funny that Jordan Subban has more goals than Virtanen? Lol

Funny? Yep, it is ironic.

Concerning? Nope, because ...

I have been at 5 Hitmen games this year and only seen him score twice. That being said every single game he was the most dominant and noticeable player on either team. He has awesome vision and makes some really great team plays but not getting a lot of results which IMO was his line mates not being able to read him. He is on a whole different level than them and anybody who has seen him in person would probably agree.

This. (Though unlike SpeedCanuck I've only seen him on tv, not in person.)

Yup I've been to at least 5-7 in the last year and I completely agree with you. Just needs some more talent around him.

hey man im not doing anything wrong. Just worrying and providing my reason for doing so. You should calm the hell down and stop being hostile.

Okay, we get it, you don't like Virtanen. Maybe go post in one of the prospects that you do like (obviously means going to another teams board.)

Kid hasnt played a game yet and you are writing him off. I bet I can find posts where you harped on Horvat as well. We get get your gig. Its old, move along...

My Canuck buddies who have relocated to Calgary are season ticket holders their. They have been to 80% of the home games. That echo your statements and also mentioned that he is being shuffled lines every game almost as well. Hard to gel that way.

They love his physical play saying it is more intense than anyone they have seen in a Canucks uni that they can remember. These are nearly 2 decade Canuck season ticket holder's and now transplanted to AB.

Their word is something I hang a lot of weight on with regards to hockey. They say if he can stay healthy and out of the box, he will dominate.

I asked about Kass and Virtanen in a heads up battle, my one buddy said "Kass wishes he was as talented as Virtanen and the physical is multiple times more effective than Kass"
