Remember the talk of Chara signing in MTL if it wasn’t for covid? He’s not what he once was but imagine having him with the four horseman they already have on D. He is still a solid bottom pairing D and there’s a chance he still signs with the habs next season. 

dont remember hearing that, but seems kinda funny mtl was one of his options considering the rival with boston lol

Crazy to me that these are what's left.  McQauid ... Chara... Lucic...there isn't many good fighters left.   Reaves might get some interest, he was the type of guy i was hoping we'd have earlier in our rebuild and i wouldn't be sad if we signed him either.  Would rather see what Gads has, he's a gamer, crashes the net or parks himself infront of it all the time etc.   Hope we protect him, this is their wimpiest  version of a Canucks team i've seen to date (going back quite a few years now) , that said same could be said with practically every other team too.   Change is tough sometimes i suppose I need to get over it too. 

I don't think our guys are 'wimpy' - thats not the way I'd describe Bo, Miller, Myers, even Petey in the way he is learning to take punishment, its just they don't initiate much tough stuff and sometimes get slammed for not retaliating.

To me. He has size, can skate, seems at least average hockey IQ. His hands are garbage, his release is slow as well. A player like him has to come to the realization that if he doesn't become a crasher that is defensively responsible, he's out of the NHL. Almost like a Blake Comeau. Check and be a pain to play against and he will keep a spot on a team. 

I just don't see that out of him. Was worth the waiver pick up tho to try it out.

I think well still hold the title of most despised Canadian team to make the finals ;) 

The media empire of Jeremy Jacobs & all of his cohorts at the CBC (Coach’s corner, etc) would have had you thinking that, wouldn’t they?

 

I still hear from folks in Finland, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, New York, Florida, Yellowknife, Seattle, the Maritimes & other places all around the world, who have remained faithful Canucks fans because of the skill & dignity of the Sedins, the stellar seasonal play of their league-leading team(s) & that Jennings Award winning goalie tandem. The sadness that this team experienced in losing their first round pick & rising star teammate to a horrible tragedy & then witnessing the subsequent heroics of his great friend & teammate Alex Burrows in that epic 2011 Cup Run, pulled at our collective heart strings. Manny’s career threatening eye injury & then miraculous return, was cheered! So many events cemented this team’s legacy in striving to over come adversity & building true character. 

 

Were they really all THAT despised, or were these reports merely the result of a lot of public “gaslighting”? The injustices they were facing suddenly became far more palatable & less protested, once the media hoard outside of VanCity began trying to make the Sedins & the rest of their teammates seem somewhat “less likeable”. No one should have been able to realistically disparage, Hank, Danny, Manny, Schneider, Salo, Hamhuis, Ehrhoff, Bieksa, and so many other members of that team. But, they gave it shot!
 

Max Lapierre, Raffi Torres, Burrows, Kesler, Luongo, Aron Rome & Mason Raymond were all then deemed far ‘less-deserving’ of unbiased refereeing standards or fair play - than some very entitled 0-6 drama-queens like: Brad Marchand, Milan Lucic, Tim Thomas, Patrice Bergeron, Boychuk & the very fragile Nathan Horton, who after being previously concussed multiple times, unfortunately bonked his helmet a little too hard upon the ice.  
 

Proof that the 2010-2011 Canucks were NOT hated by most hockey-fans, is when sponsors fueled by nation-wide fan outrage forced Ron McLean to apologize on air for his character assassination of Burrows & his anti-Canucks stance the following season, as the aftermath of the Auger (Burrows) controversy continued to unfold & the Canucks’ SCup run ended in heart-breaking fashion.  

 

Just keep truth-speaking out there Canucks Nation & always remember to testify to the way it was and, in some respects, still is!

 

Cheers!

Just talkin’ about Les Canadiens are one of the few cultural activities still going on this Canada Day! 

 

An extreme heat-wave & some  lingering covid concerns in BC have  cancelled many outdoor Canada Day fireworks displays or celebrations, even in smaller groupings. The residential schools atrocity & controversy regarding our govt’s part in attempting to destroy First Nations’ culture & their proper heritage, is a humiliating shame that many Canadians find difficult to bear, let alone celebrate. Reach out & wear something orange, my friends! 
 

Yet, hockey has seemed to survive the fray & risen above it all. I was happy to cheer under-dog Team-Canada onto victory at this year’s IIHF world Championships! What a thrill! Now we can cheer for another  Canadian-based team playing against the odds, led by a special player of First Nation’s heritage, & obvious 2021 Play-off MVP candidate, Carey Price!  
 

If we witness something in this SC Final that looks free of out-side interference or league machinations, I will be most pleased. 
 

^Praying that our best hopes for the Cup’s return to Canada are realized at a pivotal time, when “Canadians” are requiring many more things, such as this, to cement us all together.

Hang in there hockey-fans! What’s upcoming will not be for the weak or faint of heart!
 

I truly hope the final round of these 2021 NHL play-offs will live up to all the hype!

Listen, I just want the islanders to win the cup to see the debacle in toronto. I gave one example of why i think the isles will wear the habs down. If the habs win, well thats special too for price and weber 

listen - your theory that the Isles would wreck the Habs small forwards - didn't really hold up in your 'watched games' - where 5'10", 166lb Brayden Point lit them up for goals in 6 straight games....

 

anyhow - Go Habs!

The matchup here is really between vasilevsky and price 

So often boils down to that as the key element.

 

Not just Demko/the Canucks who rely on goaltending to seal the deal.  The most important position there is in the playoffs.
