loved the effort from everyone, especially Hog, Juolevi and Eddie. 

 

Brock - gotta stop talking to Marky every time he makes a save. It was annoying to watch, second game he's done this. 

 

 

 

Ya know he might be trying to get into marky’s head. I am pretty sure it’s not all buddy talk.

Pretty sure once Hamonic is healthy and finally up to speed, it will be Benn coming out for him.

It better be Benn coming out

 

that said, Benn has had a solid last 2 games

What I loved most about this game was the Canucks Defense. They just focused on getting pucks out of the zone safely and aggressive on the blue line. The forwards really helped out too. 
 

Let’s keep that consistent moving forward. 

Also the deployment on the d core  was pretty even based on TOI

I think the media (guys like Jeff Patterson specifically) have helped to create a culture in Vancouver where sh**ing on the team constantly is acceptable. I do not believe that people who watch every game and take the time to regularly post here arent really fans. Think about it for a second. Would you bother to watch every Bruins or Flames game just so you could troll their forums afterwards? Yeah, probably not. People want to see the team win and when they don't, people complain. Simple as that. 

For sure.   It does get a little tiresome when that's all you hear, and fans start calling players garbage and what not.

What an intelligent player Hughsie is. It was all on display on his goal, the all important first goal. He was a plus 1 in the game and took a little chip off his league high -13, LOL. But he's the top scoring dman in the league too, and I'll take that!

Looking at our dmen's stats, I'm surprised that Schmidt has the best +/- with a plus 1. That's amazing for all the times we've been blown out. And he's played all 18 games. Juolevi has a team high +3 but he's played only 10 games. After last night, he's shown that he should be a regular.

Great effort, much needed and well deserved win.

 

Coaches and management are probably quite relieved that the players really came to play when their seats were the hottest they've ever been in Vancouver.

 

We've seen some good signs of the team turning it around a bit over the past 3 games even though we've only won 1 of them. Hopefully more of the same to come.

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.

I agree Benning made the right choice mostly for financial and expansion reasons though. Markstrom doesn't have high miles he didn't really become a starter until age 27 there is no reason to worry about his play dropping off in 3 years at age 34. Plenty of goalies remain competitive into their late 30s. Calgary got a great player and team mate. With the expansion coming we couldn't have both and Markstrom wasn't going to allow himself to be exposed. There is no way JB could have moved enough salary to keep him and sign the kids to their up coming deals. I'm happy for Marky and Tanev to have gotten the deals they did great guys who deserved it. Just too bad they landed in Calgary.

Hamonic was having a very slow start to the season when he got hurt so it will be very interesting. Benn and Hughes have been having some chemistry. I know hamonic has much more to give than what we were seeing as the whole team was off

 

Regarding OJ, I really liked that hit he threw on Thachuk (no idea how to spell his name). OJ has been showing improvement but as you said it is likely that he will sit.

Benn and Hughes had one good game.  Hamonic is a legit top 4.  If hes healthy hes gotta slot in for Benn.  I love what OJ is doing out there so i would rather see him stick.

OJ quietly having solid rookie season, hogs no. 6 in rookie scoring, ahead of stutzle, 2 points back of lead, was unlucky not to get point last night. Another good JB/nucks draft pick with podz, rathbone, Lind poised to play NHL games this year/next year. Then there are guys like Lockwood, woo, jasek, Gadjo, Aidan mcdonut, truscott, who still have an outside chance at an nhl career, short or long.

 

JB era picks in the NHL/played nhl games (over 6 drafts- a little early to include this year, especially as we did not pick 'til 3rd round)

 

Boess

EP

Huggy

Virtanen

McCann

Tryamkin

Dipietro

Forsling

Gaudette

OJ

Hogz

 

so we are realistically looking at 13-14 players from his first 6 drafts to make the nhl, not bad

I don't get why we do not see hughes+_schmidt or Hughes +myers more...

Juolevi-Myers has been an actually good pairing, and you don't want to experiment much with a rookie defender who's had to jump as many hurdles as Olli has to make the show.

Just about everyone has had a solid last couple games. Almost as though the young core, lack of a real preseason, bunch of new faces and one of the league's busiest schedules/no practice time were causing the team to underperform...

Regardless, you don't go around the league attacking the best players. I'm not going to make excuses for why the guy's a piece of crap. He instigated the entire sequence of events. He shouldn't have even been in the league. That's why expansion has allowed trash like that to get in. Otherwise, he'd have been relegated to the AHL or the ECHL. My whole point is - if you're going to play by the sword, expect to die by the sword. Tkapuke, watch out.

Regardless of Ketchup's dirty plays, he is almost a point a game player, which makes him a top 6 player on any team in the league.

 

I think he's a scumbag too, but like Marchand, he will get away with it until a player or ref take exception to it.  So far, that hasn't happened to either player.

I think with Jake last night he was trying to play safe hockey, but that line of Eriksson Beagle and virtanen was buzzing all night. If Jake went in 1 on 4 and lost the puck during the change everyone would have lost it because Calgary would have had an odd man rush. 

Jake looked to keep his game simple and I thought it was one of his better games. I think what's more frustrating with Jake is when he tries to do too much he makes more mistakes. Jake was playing on the 4th line and people are complaining about him scoring? 

I think he needs to develop his defensive game and the offense will start coming. 

It's hard to build chemistry when you are bounced around through the line up. 

I'm not even a Jake fan, but I don't think he was bad last night. I don't think he was great, but fans on here calling him out like he singlehandedly lost us every game this season isn't useful. It's a team game.
