I remember hearing in an interview or short documentary that it was disclosed that Bieksas' dad trained them in boxing while they were growing up..

Like Rick Rypien’s dad trained Rick in mixed martial arts, I believe. Couple of guys that fought way over their weight.

Much like Scott Walker, who Iron Mike failed to protect in the expansion draft, Scotty took on much bigger dudes, Remember Chris Murray a heavy weight. Unfortunatley it didn't work out for Scotty that night, Murray literally destroyed him, but then in  the next period Brashear did a real number on Murray and that was basically the end of Murrays career. The official wouldn't step in and let Brashear go at it.  RR was the best

I find the idea of a Woo - Rathbone pairing to be very intriguing. Their respective play styles could really mesh...signs of that in Utica already.

I've been hoping for this for a couple years now... If they can come up and be a future, complimentary pair...:wub:

What I like is that they lead the team in plus/minus and they get plenty of D zone starts - more and more as the season goes on. Woo +7 in 13gp, Rathbone +6 in 8 GP. By comparison, Baertschi is -9.

Woo first in to stick up for a teammate after a hit into the boards 

 

 

That AHL colour commentator is gracing his audience with some truly elegant phraseology in gems like “we’ll see what happens here, as far as what happens...”

 

Such eloquence and style. Pure poetry. :lol:
 

(Definitely like Woo standing up for his teammates, though. Kid is a beauty.)

I'm hoping he can be the right handed compliment for Hughes. Like a Keith-Seabrook top pairing.....

We need that Utica's response to defending teammates in Vancouver.

Just means the Canucks will be shorthanded.

5 plus an instigator and a misconduct.

Ask Hamonic, he'll tell you.

And? It depends if you want to see the same culture as the post-Bertuzzi era or a new culture that resembles a hockey team. A penalty in a single regular season game is not a big deal, it's not like we won the game anyways against Toronto. We lost and got beat up. At least the Sedins punished teams on the PP sometimes.

I'd like to see the team stay out of the penalty box.

I'd like to see them win.

I'd like to see the penalties called in a fair mannerr, that doesn't happen to the Canucks.

They get rough, they go to the box and the team gets scored on.

Rinse repeat.

did you see what happened to Hamonic, then what did not happen to Simmonds?

Does that not tell you the league doesn't like it when the Canucks play rough?

How many more losses due to crappy penalty calls are you willing to ses?

5, an instigator and a misconduct for a Canuck versus 5 minutes for fighting to any other team.

We're not losing games because of penalties. We're losing games because we are playing like trash. They play soft too, look at the goals against. It's because of weak, soft defensive plays. Or it's a breakdown in the system because it's a bunch of new players in the line-up. 

 

You are paranoid about the league, that's your problem.
