Watched it start to finish, Jake played soft in both ends and looked lazy, he does everything at half speed. He plays on a team where a 20-year-old second round pick has passed him up by playing the right way. With his gifts, if Jake just played 75% as hard as Hoglander, he would be a star.

Then it seems we were watching different games or our focus was on different things. His back checking, his skating were all good, i didn't really see him floating. Maybe when you noticed him he was skating off for a line change and you thought he was floating

FINALLY a win...and well deserved one as well. The way the team fought against marky (WHY is he not on our team anymore :mad:) was definetly a sign that the team has spirit, that they wanted to win. But it takes a lot to maintain that, the energy and focus needed with so many games in such a short time. I absolutely LOVED watching hoglander play. Rookie but with such a high tenacity to get the puck its unbelievable. Hope he gets enough confidence to do even more things like he did in the SHL. Got a feeling we will see a lacrosse goal from him soon... But all in all, i thought the team looked better and finally got that important win after a really long battle against bad bounces and a long mental struggle after a losing streak. 1st line was ok and did create some nice chances, but i fear Miller has lost a bit of confidence since he hasnt gotten results when working hard like he did last season and that may slow that line a bit. He was our best player last year so expectations are indeed very high on him. I liked the work that Eriksson and Virtanen did at times but Jake must be more consistent in the way he puts in his work. But all in all....a great game where we finally got a win that was well deserved. We need a turnaround to regain confidence and make the hockeygods turn in our favor.....like that old saying.... u needd to be good to be lucky and lucky to be good. :towel:

Absolutely agree on Juolevi. He is really starting to look good.  And I loved his hit on Tkachuck.

 

 But remember Chatfield must play 18 more games = 27 total for the year in order to meet the league requirement that we have one D available to the seattle draft who played 27+ games this year.  Otherwise that has to be either myers or schmidt who is exposed.

 

So there is a specific reason why Chatfield is getting games.

 

I know he just had a great game and all, but the team should expose Myers. He’s the only less-than-desirable contract the team has that extends past next season.

i love marky but in 3 yrs  calgary will still owe him 18 mill    thats another eriksson contract by then. demko is much younger and  can be a mvp like in playoffs so  benning made right choice.

You are comparing an elite goalie in Marky to Eriksson?? Not everyone who signs a 6 year contract become Ericksson. Marky might even play as long as Brodeur did.

I see the same people bashing us the last six games are now getting over excited for one win. Typical bandwagon fans. For those calling out the flames at the end there, you’d be pissed too if one of their players elbowed one of our best players in the head. You guys make us look bad as fans. Stop bitching and acting like whiny entitled brats. 

wow Canucks win a game and you talk about how we should be nice about the Flames being butthurt? Tkatchuk is an SOB and doesnt deserve any respect and that Flames team can thank Marky for most of their win otherwise they would be in the same spot as Sens.

Juolevi is quietly showing what he can do the last few games. Looked very poised tonight, shot a few lasers from the point that just missed the mark. He's getting better as the season is going

I loved how he hit Ketchup. Showed him that he was the better pick :P

The whole team played like stars tonight even Lucky Loui  but I have to agree with you that Lazy Jake was useless again tonight and is the only player that played in tonight's game that should do a hundred push-ups and be bag skated at next practice and benched again - next game.  Good job Nucks - you guys rocked tonight !

Jake did worse than that. Like  throwing the puck away into the corner when he had passing options or giving up on a puck battle as soon as he was under pressure and just skated away.  I've been an ardent JV supporter from day 1 but I think I've finally seen enough. The team isn't any better with him on the ice, its time for him to go.

Yea, you're in good company because the majority of folks on here have come to the same conclusion on Lazy Jake that he's a floater and has no fire burning in his belly.   Best thing for him is to get outta town as I'm afraid he's washed-up around here.   Too bad because we all hoped we'd see better from him.  Sad situation really!

newsflash - defensemen get injured whether their name is Tanev or not.

I'm guessing you've paid attention to this franchise long enough to realize that.

If that's what you reduce your assessment of a player to - you have the wrong principal factors in mind.  Unless those injuries result in decline, then you're dwelling too much on it.

I love what Tanev brought the guy is a warrior.

He's also averaged around 60 games a season due to what makes him most effective, also puts him in bad positions to break a bone.

Hopefully, the equipment changes help, tho the last reg season game he was injured and it would have been season-ending had Covid not happened.

So I get why people think the way they do, we would have been without him for a must-win stretch of games and most of the playoffs.

His injuries have never been chronic so that's good but he's  the type that seems to break bones easier than most.

Maybe not a reason to not sign long-term but at the same time can't ignore he misses 15-20 games almost every single year.

You guys like Hoglander.  He was only the 2nd round pick that year.  Wait until the 1st round pick of 2019 shows up.  Oh boy...

 

Honestly, I’ve lost count at how many studs Benning has drafted over the last 7 years.  Imagine if Gillis had actually left him with something, anything?  The cupboard was completely bare when Benning arrived.  Yes, it took all of those 7 years to actually acquire enough talent to fill an entire roster.  Looks like we may actually have a full roster of young talent in the next year or two.  

Juolevi is like found money... Hogs is better than any of us expected (even myself ^_^).  And yes... He's almost here folks.  Just in time for the last push to make the playoffs.  Podz will step right in to bottom 6 and really deepen our roster.  excellent GIF

We'll be a dark horse like last year if we can make playoffs!

Jake was so so tonight, I was suprised they put him out there in the last 4 minutes of the game, he did cause a turnover though on a somewhat crucial part of the game. I know the bar is extremely low on Virtanen, so its something but overall, still a massive dissappointment.
