I too, think that Podkolzin might get another look with Petey and Miller. Seemed like he had a pretty decent game with those two. 


I expect another strong performance from the Podz, between Miller and Pettersson. 


And I'm hoping for a win against the Wings. 


He played the first with Miller and Pete, then on the 4th line

played 7 minutes total

Three players on Vancouver's active roster have yet to make their regular season Canucks debut:

  • Jaroslav Halák signed as a free agent on July 28. The two-time winner of the William M. Jennings Trophy (2012, 2020) appeared in 19 games for the Bruins last season, posting a 9-6-4 record to go along with a 2.53 goals-against average and .905 save percentage.

  • Nic Petan signed a two-way deal as a free agent on July 28. The Delta, BC native appeared in seven games with the Leafs last season, registering one point (0-1-1) and four penalty minutes and 14 games with the Marlies recording 15 points (7-8-15) and six penalty minutes.

I have only been able to watch the first 2 games in bits and pieces, but I am really liking the effort overall!

So cool that Podz got his 1st bingo only a couple of games into his career. Was it strange that he didn't see the ice for the 3rd? Green protecting his minutes? or did he have a couple of bad shifts?


I wish I would have been able to witness the Myers hit on Keith live, but being able to rewind the highlights over and over again....WHAMMYYYYY!


So far, we have had the opportunity to win both games with a lot of new faces in the lineup. I figured there might be immediate growing pains, but i'm happy with the start!
