...and same posters come on here to bash other fans every time.

 

Quit bashing Nucks fans and go post on Calgary Puck.

Quit supporting fans who hate the team one day and then act like they love them the next. Nothing wrong with criticism and being realistic but don’t straight up say the harshest untrue things and then act like you’re a diehard the next win for attention. It’s embarrassing and the absolute worst type of fan and these forums are full of them. As for me sticking up for the Flames....I’m just being realistic. Elder elbowed Lindholm. We as fans would be pissed if it were the other way around. I still wanted the Canucks to kick there ass at the end but I can totally understand why they caused a scrum at the end.

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.

  ya hes injury prone thats doubtful  and demko is the better tender

The thing is, you guys say the same thing over and over again. It's lazy. You're predictable and you don't show any effort in your criticisms. Maybe you need to sit out a few games and reset.

looks like the quote didn't make it along. It was nothing more than just another Virtanen attack

You know Dib

 

The 2 biggest culprits of that are IMO, Horvat and Virtanen. At least Edler hits on a very consistent basis, where as the other 2 leave me wanting. IMO, aggression can be shown several different ways, but when your captain and your fastest player, do not, it just pisses me off. Now, I know Virtanen will hit, but he passes up on too many really quality opportunities, as does Horvat. So before I am going to complain about Edler, who really has made some great hits over the years, I would like to see others answer the bell first.

 

Just my opinion, but in Horvat's case it is blatant, and he is our friggin captain!

I agree.  For a big heavy body capable of setting  the tone, Bo plays a very soft game.  It would be nice to see him jump into the fray more aggressively to defend his teammates as well.  Jake is just lost.  He  looks like a kid who has no idea what his identity is or what is expected of him.  At this point, I would put him on the 4th line and I structuring to just be anenergy guy and to go out and hit often and hit hard. Forget all the 6th overall pick expectations and let him play a very simple game/role.

You're making a lot of subjective assessments between criticism/ hate and posts for attention.  Certainly emotion/passion leads to hyperbole but only real fans would be that upset by a poor product or so ecstatic with a win.  Not all can remain objective all the time. 

 

A while back, I spent quite a bit of time on opposition forums and I can assure you, the same level of love/hate for teams, management and players exists there.

And you’re making a subjective assessment calling them real fans. Just because you find every team has “fans” like this ( and every team does) doesn’t make it right. I’ll always argue that they are poser fans.

you're describing Miller - perhaps forgetting how healthy Miller plays the game.

 

Btw - Boeser also never stops moving his feet (they just don't move as quickly as Hoglander's).

Last season, yes. This season, not so much. Is he injured? Didn't see or hear anything about that.

 

Boeser has obviously improved his overall game but I feel like Miller is better suited for that role of puck retriever using his unique combo of foot speed and size and Boeser more as a finisher. If Miller isn't playing his game, that makes the first line far less effective. 

 

It's funny how the things that Miller was preaching for last season, like needing to dump the puck in and to retrieve it with tenacious forechecking... he's not doing it much and Boeser is the one that does most of the forechecking and moving his feet on that line. Miller has gotten away from what made him great and if it's an injury, that's understandable but if its complacency, I'd be worried.
