Re: Canucks take Anton Cederholm with #145

Anton is a big bodied defenseman who loves to play physical and use his size to intimidate his opponents... In one on one situations he utilizes both his stick and his body to make good plays and is reliable defensively... As is typical every draft pick is going to be a star if you read the write u...

Re: Canucks Sign Higgins 4yr/10m

i know how the story ends...a third line discarded player at the end of his career is rehabed by us...given a large contract and his game goes in the big shitter...its a standard Canuck story...i find that Higgins is a utility player and the contract is too long in regards to his age...

Re: Has AV's time come?

One more time: Perhaps you have been wrong all along about AV's "expiration date". :sly: Or maybe it's the "best before" date. Real food uses "expiration," a lot of semi-food is "safe" to eat almost indefinitely although palatability suffers hence, "best before." AV's demonstrated inability to succ...

Re: GDT: Feb 12 - Canucks vs Wild 7:00PM TSN

What to name this Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen line? full of speedsters, beauty passing by Ballard, Raymond for Hansen's goal. The Bee Line? The 99? Reliable. Prolific. Common. Seriously, that express bus going up and down the Broadway corridor is fantastic and a TON OF PEOPLE use it happily (the U...

Re: GDT: Feb 4 - Canucks @ Oil 6:30 PM - SNet

- He was always reported as being a very strong (powerful) guy. Strength doesn't look like an issue (at this point)... One thing that has surprised me is that Schroeder has been pretty good along the boards. Spot on. Schroeder has great balance and leg strength. That's good enough for him to be com...

Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

As physical as he is and as game as he is, Kassian is still pretty raw. For example, his fight against Clowe - I love that he was game for it (but he looked more than a bit, I wouldn't quite say nervous but perhaps "concerned" after dropping the gloves, the little check sleeves/lid routine) but I re...

Nice to see Kassian having enough smarts to take advantage of the Sedins (or make himself useful for the Sedins) =)

Re: Wife of Dominic Moore passes away, 32

Cancer treatment in Canada, ime, has been pretty damned good. Once the whole "wait 3 months for a test," wait "3 more months for another test," &c., once the province has your doctor's diagnosis of that particular cancer, then things get done really fast. I really think that, for certain specific ca...

Re: 2013 Canucks Short Preseason/Training Camp

Fan of Arnott; 2nd coming of Linden, perhaps. Or maybe a good'n'uff Doan. Fill in the 2nd C and should be willing to move down and still be effective when Kes gets back. However, I'm not sure if he's fast/quick enough to keep up with AV's style for the Canucks. Especially the top 2 lines. I don't se...

Re: There will be a strike

The best, and perhaps only way, is if they sit out long enough (i.e. years) people will become disinterested more organically and find they have better things to do... A-freaking-men. Instead of watching other people play, go out and join a league yourself. Lots harder to do than say - and I wanna ...

Well, Morrison did end up being the responsible core of the WCE, not to mention a BC boy blahblah. But yeah, Almo was elite.
