Re: Goaltending

My observation of the past 2 years has been that the goaltending decisions have always been reactive - Marky plays well, gets the next start, then the next, then plays horribly and Anders goes in. Anders plays well, gets the next start, plays horribly then back to Marky. The problem is, when either ...

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

And even better in Blob's books, this opens the door for Gaunce to get re-called!

I just traded Stamkos for Petterson in my fantasy league.

I have no regrets.
Bad timing though.... :(
Sorry guys, it was all my fault...

Looks like a Photoshop job to me.
Fake news?
It does look odd, could it be a screenshot from NHL 18?

0 goals 0 assists in 4 games, minus 5, and now on IR 7-10 days with UBI. Are you picking Nolan Patrick over Elias Pettersson?
Olaf has 1 assist and is -6 in the AHL. Are you still picking him 5Th overall in 2016?
Boeser has one goal and is -7.

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Hard to say he went off the board. We know several teams drafting behind us were eyeballing Petterson. We know Nashville would have selected him 1st overall had they been drafting 1st overall. Pettersson was what, ranked around 10? That’s not really off the board is it. I think it’s more an indicat...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

From the interview, and the results, its clear that drafting wasn't a top priority for Gillis. He has his reasons for why that was the case, and had he won a Cup we wouldn't be second-guessing and he'd likely still be the GM. Well then thank God we didn't win the Cup because Gillis certainly would ...

Have a word with one of his doctors while you're at it, after Hossa's medical retirement I'd start with his dermatologist :lol:

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

To me its nothing but positives that the Gagner call was "the toughest one" Benning's had to make. 1. Shows that Benning has the stones to make hockey decisions that will piss off the owner. 2. Shows that Francesco is willing to being persuaded by his GM. 3. Shows a high degree of openness with the...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

I liked a lot of ahead-of-the-curve things that Gillis did. For some reason, people (particularly the dummies on the radio) love to mock the "sleep doctors", but nobody mentions that every team in the league copied Gillis on that system of fatigue management, that the sleep data from year one lead t...
