Re: Forwards - 2014/15

Burrows is one of the few Canucks who actually shows up come playoff time. Now I suppose if the team is smart and is not looking to make the playoffs for couple of years then I suppose he's expendable. What about the twins? I still think they are skilled regular season players, but are incapable of ...

Re: Canucks Acquire Derek Dorsett for 85th Overall

Sad about this for two reasons... DONDO!!! Where ya been the last 4 years bro? :D Dorsett is not worth 85th overall and he's a cheap piece of crap Agreed on both counts, although you must admit he's "an elite 4th liner" (credit: Rumsfeld). -- and a biter (bit Kenndal McArdle in the WHL playoffs) Se...

Re: Canucks Acquire Derek Dorsett for 85th Overall

We nicknamed him "snappy the turtle" after he bit McArdle -- next game we brought wind-up chattering teeth and put them up to the glass every time he skated by -- might have to ressurect that So what you're saying is Burrows is expendable now? nah I think we are just collecting biters .. I wonder i...

Re: Canucks Acquire Derek Dorsett for 85th Overall

He's a head butter too! Indeed I was shocked he didn't get suspended for that move... let's break it down shall we? A hit to the head, first point of contact the head, gratuitous after the whistle attack and yet the league didn't even blink .. he should have got a couple of games at least in my min...

Sad about this for two reasons... Dorsett is not worth 85th overall and he's a cheap piece of crap -- and a biter (bit Kenndal McArdle in the WHL playoffs) - he's kind of a loose cannon kind of pest as well and takes cheap-ass extra shots whenever he gets a chance. I for one don't like having those ...

Re: Draft Day 2014

Happy to see nucks finally drafting some WHL players. Virtanen has some upside and hunger and leadership abilities. Very happy to see them not go off the boards and pick a lame US college player. Also happy to see them sticking local and in the Dub. Ehlers is a bit over 160 and will take time to dev...

Re: Is Cory Starting?

very nice solid start for Schneider... great to see Corey bring that kind of game .. the team needed that and it helped they gave him some scoring support.

Re: GDT: Canucks host Canes - 6pm - Snet

very nice start by Schneider, helps that the team played the full 60 -- lots of slumps bumped and Schneider's solid 'tending kep them in there until the goals started coming -- they also were recipients of some nice puck luck. Passes threading through legs to the open side. The Canes didn't play tha...

Re: GDT: Canucks host Canes - 6pm - Snet

sadly this is the attitude that gets us into trouble goalie-wise. You don't not start Schneider because he might lose, you challenge him to step it up. If the team takes a loss, then they take a loss. Playing Lu in back to back games is silly, but could be what AV might do, using your logic. Lu isn'...

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Kings - 7:30 SnetP

... Apparently Luongo is in again ... what happened to giving Schneider a bunch of games (20 - 25 according to MG)? This is a divisive issue, because MG has said that publicly and to be honest its the way to go -- let Lu play 60ish games and give Schneider the rest, its the only way to develop the ...

Re: The Next 'C' - Vote for your choice.

I know its early, early in the season, but the Canucks are looking very rudderless right now. Part of that is (imo) Henrik wearing the C -- he's not a motivator and not the kind of player to gut it out, drop the mitts or step it up for his team. Naslund wasn't either. Smyl was, Linden was. Linden mo...
