Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Canucks sign Pettersson.

Training camp is going to be interesting.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Pettersson looked good in his third game at the WHC, with a pretty set up & goal.

.

Pardon the repartee interruption.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Comets 0 - Marlies 4 :(

Was good play off experience for the prospects though. Demko & Goldobin are progressing. Dahlen's game looks like it will translate to the small ice fine.

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

I would be very happy with Dobson. Size RHD Can point up points Not sure of his skating and defensive zone coverage. Dobson's positioning, passing & one timer look good. Accurate, low, consistent & able to shoot around shot blockers. Good for a prospective PP quarterback. Another guy that needs to ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Goldobin has been playing better without the puck - where the majority of the game is played.

The stuff that typically doesn't make the highlight clips, but results in offensive opportunities & more ice time.

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Here's hoping we don't learn our draft position until after about 5:40 PST (the second intermission of the Vegas - SJ game).

That would mean we get a top 3 pick. :thumbs:

Game 2.

Comets 2 Marlies 5

Dahlen & Goldobin seemed to be developing some chemistry, but no pay off this game.

Re: So long, farewell, good bye to the Sedins

Hommage. Vivre le Sedins libre.

Old Olli & Thomas can come back for a year & substitute if more mentorship is required. No need to panic & go crazy with the cap. Keep building with youth.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

^^^ It's true that the days of the full time NHL goon are gone. You must have NHL skating & some skill. NHL deterrence still exists. Teammates play bigger when they have back up. Hence, we signed Guddy, but Guddy can't play along side our skilled forwards. We may need a forward who can provide some ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

It could take Pettersson some time to put on fast twitch muscle in a manner that retains coordination & skills. So be it. Hockey skills trump weight gain & strength. If getting beat up on the ice is the only thing preventing his playng in the NHL, give him an on ice guardian. Cliff Ronning played at...
