The only way we see Jake and Loui in a trade is to NJ for Subban. And I bet we'd have to throw in a draft pick. 

Yeah, no doubt.  It would be worth it to add a decent pick or prospect to get rid of $8.2m cap.  It's just for 1 season after all.:ph34r:

Juolevi's way better than Chatfield, that hit on Tkachuk was one of the best parts of the game. The big Swede though was letting Tkachuk ragdoll him, memories of Daniel, getting bullied by Marchand. What the heck Edler, fight back.

As last nights game demonstrates (and its only one game), when the team is playing a tight, structured game, the giveaways on D are cut right down.

The worst giveaways last night were by a forward (Miller).

What confuses me is how they can perform like they did last night after we have seen them play horribly defensively for many games. 

 

Last night the d  were closing gaps, weren’t backing in as much,  playing far more aggressive, and weren’t reverting to the passive 5 man box they seem to collapse into when the other team pressures.  The forwards were supporting them too. 
 

Did the coaches direct them to not sit back as much?  The players actually executing the plan that was being preached all along?  Is cohesion finally starting to form after new guys / pairings getting some games and real practices  together?  What changed? 
 

whatever it is I hope they keep it up.

Again you and every other troll compares JV effort level to Motte and Hog. Who else competes like them?

Petterson, Hughes, Boeser, Horvat, Guadette,  hell even Rousell and Beagle. These guys all give 100% every shift. You and every other troll trys to claim these guys aren't working hard out there when the team isn't winning. Which is total b.s.

grueling schedule and no practices to a few days off and being able to practice can change a whole team outlook

WE talking practice. Not another game, practice.

 

Which helps the team play better in the actual games.

Hughes gonna need to buckle down on defense, can't afford to have him as a defensive liability while Edler, Hamonic and Myers are giveaway machines.

Hughes look pretty good last night. 

Edler and Myers can play a lot better; especially in the P/Os.  I thought they both played well last night.

Judging Hamonic on 5 games (after not playing since before the P/Os last year) is unfair.  Hopefully he will return soon and we will get to see what he can do.

Sorry to rain on the positivity parade, but thats not a good looking defense. Not if you're a playoffs fan.

It's ok Dav.  We're used to it.B)

No doubt that the ridiculous schedule has made it very difficult for them

I thought so too. I hope Benn or Mac challenges Tkachuk early in the next game to send the message that that will not be tolerated.

I think it was a combination of the brutal schedule, no practice time, and incumbent players ,getting used to new players to the organization.

The problems only compounded under the brutal schedule, nobody could get on the same page.

It seems like Green is 'righting the ship', whether it's enough to get them back in the race, is anyones guess.

I got ko'd once on the exact play that Naslund did and against our bitterest rival.  You know who I was mad at and blamed?  I was to blame for putting myself in that vulnerable position because I'm the only one responsible for my safety out there.

Fair enough. I don't know the circumstances involved in that incident. But players like Moore make their own bed.

I hope Baumer is smart enough to leave Myers and OJ together. They just got better and better as the game went on. Myers can be an adventure but OJ is a very cerebral player. Might make for a great pairing moving forward.

he's  the type that seems to break bones easier than most.

 

Isn't a bone thats been broken harder after it healed?

If so Tanev might not get injured any more.

No kidding.  He is showing great. Just a late bloomer. In a couple years he will be a solid top 4 dman in this league

Hmmm its almost like he had injury troubles for 2 seasons and now that he is over it he is showing what he can do even though many on here were calling him a bust.

But follow the progress of the conversation. Try to be apart of something rather than the person that always cries and says this sucks.

 

Who do you replace him with?

Gaudette does not hit nor does he play D.

Mac plays a similar game and hits a bit more than JV. However, JV plays D and can be seen covering for D men that drop down.

Haw... (don't know how to spell his name) I don't know him.

Bailey was interesting but is injured now.

Podkolzin is not here, yet.

Eriksson is good at D but lacking in many other areas. He may play more with Motte injured for his ability to PK.

 

The Canucks are better with him in the line up then having him sit.

Mac and Virt make Sutter better. As they showed the most chemistry.

 

Again you and every other troll compares JV effort level to Motte and Hog. Who else competes like them? If you hold the team to their level of motivation, then we need to scrap the team as they are all useless and lazy.

How about 24 yearold Ferland?

 

Anyway youre missing the point. If JV made an effort he would be an impact player but he doesn't so he isn't. He's had all the chances maybe he figures it out but rest assured it won't be here. Don't need his waste of talent around the team infecting the culture anymore.

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 !

They played their way out of it, the start of which you could see it in the last game vs the Laffs.

 

And it all started with pressuring the puck in the D zone.

They are not like Hogs and Motte. The Lotto line just started playing hockey 3 games ago.

And people thought Tanev's Calgary contract is an over payment. 

 

Also, I could be mistaken, but my understanding is that there weren't really any other teams aggressively pursuing Myers. If so that would make his contract and even bigger overpayment

 

I'm not saying Myers shouldn't have been signed but this is just another classic example of Jim Benning over paying in Free Agency.

Overpaying players to come here is nothing new, the Canadian dollar and idiot fans who are clueless has a lot to do with it, especially when their clueless about the extra's a player bring and I'll use your example, Myers, he's worth every penny because of his size but most people forget about that until we need that size but usually too stupid to think about it before beaking off...  same with Tryamkin..  and do I expect any of this to change anytime soon ?  uhhhh nope!

Do we have a 24 yo Ferland? Why is Green benching him for JV? Oh right, you are saying something dumb to make a point.

 

You missed the point. JV is the best player to play that we currently have available. When Pods arrives, that will be a different story.

Playing players that are worse than what JV brings because you feel he is not good enough is counter productive. I want the team to win not hold grudges that he did not turn into blah.
