Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

He was horrendous last night. Every player has a bad night, try to see the big picture little guy. 8-) Goodness gracious your emotional knee-jerk reactions remind me of someone... Hi :) The Guds could be so much better if he just worked a bit on his skating, defensive coverage and covering for his ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

If Berglund's issues in Buffalo were strictly with the organization or city, and he is willing to take a very low "show me" contract for the remainder of the season, then I would offer him a $2M pro-rated contract for the balance of this season. Send Schaller to the farm. It seems that's a big if. ...

Re: GDT: 18/12/18; Bolts vs Canucks, 7pm SNETP

About last night... There was a game, too. This thread is full of comments on the hits, the retribution, the hockey code, etc. But let's not get lost in this that the Canucks played toe to toe with the Lightning in the game-not-within-the-game, though the outcome wasn't as desired. If the power play...

Re: Injury Update 2018-19

I feel for the Tan-man. Too young to really have an impact on the last Stanley Cup run, and too old for the next one. A defenseman's peak last until the early 30s, one report says 34 years old. (https://www.cbc.ca/news/when-nhl-players-peak-hockey-metrics-1.2646054). That's 5 more years for Tanev -...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

This draft really intrigues me.

A lot of people say the Canucks need some defense, but I'm thinking Tkachuk is too good to pass up!

Goldobin gets back in it sounds like. Because Brian Burke texted Green and asked him, LOL https://twitter.com/DhaliwalSports/status/1070698968395337728?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1070698968395337728&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fforum.canucks.com%2Findex.php%3Fapp%3Dcore%26module%3...

Re: Injury Update 2018-19

On the injury news, Boeser might be back tomorrow. Team felt good enough about it to return Archibald to Utica. And may Archibald never return. Nice story, to get some NHL time the past couple of years after looking like he was a career AHLer. But his presence means the Canucks are either quite inj...

Re: GDT: Nov 8/11. Canucks @ Bruins. 4:00 pm SN

I was referring to an earlier Jake who would have several good chances, but rarely found the back of the net. Patience is paying dividends. Jake's play away from the puck is getting much better (it couldn't get much worse- Lennon and McCartney). Having Rousel and Schaller around as role models is h...

Re: GDT: Nov 8/11. Canucks @ Bruins. 4:00 pm SN

Quite enjoyable seeing the beantown beat-down. I find it a little curious though how Gaudette still hasn't found the back of the net, and tonight, he was set up point blank. I was inclined to think that a Hobey Baker award winner would put the numbers up; afterall, look at Gaudrea! But it's simply ...

Re: GDT: Nov 8/11. Canucks @ Bruins. 4:00 pm SN

Terrible game for Boston. Canucks down low weren't tied up, pucks that should have been cleared weren't, etc. But unlike past years, Canucks are capitalizing. 8 goals and a few Grade A chances for Gaudette and Granlund missed. 5 goals against, though, was not an accident. Markstrom was okay in this ...

Re: Canucks @ Coyotes 7 pm. SNP

Goldobin makes some real stupid passes whe he’s pressured. He also can be quite crafty with the puck, sees the ice well. With Goldy there’s the good and bad but more importantly with players like that you have to cultivate his risky game cause that is his strong suit. I’m hoping as time goes on he ...
