Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

A coworker was stating that in their opinion the EP slam was a hockey play and that no one should get concussed from such a move. So I invited him to the neighborhood Judo club on the condition that he let me throw him once. I taught him the break falls, which he didn't think he needed. Anyway one ...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Interesting observation, and worth looking up. They're 16th for Shots Against, and 6th for Shot Attempts Against: link But the concerning one is they're 30th for shot attempt differential at -88 through 6 games. However they are keeping fairly good company down there, with Anaheim (31st), NYI (28th)...

Lol. Ekblad’s fall from Grace.

I see the Oilers are losing....again. You go McDavid.
Spoke too soon RD, win 5-4 in OT.
Nurse in OT is the first Oiler to score this season without an assist from McDavid.

Talk about a rebuild model!

Other than the first 2 games, he's a PPG player again.

Who was talking about sending him down to Utica?

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 ...

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 ...

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...
