kurtzfan Posted October 10, 2017 Share Posted October 10, 2017 Brock Boeser had four goals and three assists in five games during the pre-season. Yet, he didn't get to play during the regular season. He was on fire the end of last season. http://theprovince.com/sports/hockey/nhl/vancouver-canucks/canucks-notes-burrows-gets-big-bouquets-boeser-gets-big-reminder That's what the coach said regarding Brock Boser's situation: Brock Boeser led the Canucks in pre-season scoring with four goals and three assists in five games. He started fast but faded and the winger didn’t play in the opener Saturday. It wasn’t a knock on the 2015 first-round pick. But Boeser was also the extra forward in line rushes at practice on Monday and the buzz of him sitting out Saturday was immediate and long lasting. Welcome to Vancouver, coach. “I’d be a fool to not believe that some people may wonder why, but fans get caught up in the hype and that’s the great part about sport,” said head coach Travis Green. “One good think about Vancouver is you get a lot of advice. But you have to make hard decisions. “We watch every little detail and I thought Brock got a little tired toward the end of camp. I don’t think he played his best the last two games, but I’m not disappointed. I like Brock and he has a lot of upside. But I thought he was skating better at the beginning of camp then at the end, but I see him improving his foot speed.” As for Boeser, he said this much: “I’m going to work on some stuff to make sure I can get in the lineup. And when I get the chance, I’m going to make the most of it so he (Green) can’t take me out.” Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
