Re: Ference 3 games

I was expecting 3+ myself as its looks pretty clear cut on the replays. I guess DPS is putting the most emphasis on whether or not the person is injured or not. Had Kassian gone to the quiet room and missed a period it might have been a bigger suspension. Injury > intent + point of contact + establi...

Re: Torts Tossed

There is no f-ing way that Henrik is losing the C. The guy is the franchise leader in points, assists, Hart trophies, Art Ross trophies (tied)...etc. The idea that because the team had one bad season and therefore the entire team is worthless is so stupid (not saying that's your point of view). The...

Re: Torts Tossed

So now that the team has removed the GM and coach, what is the next move beyond finding replacements? Does Linden look to move big pieces of the core? Does everyone with a NTC get told to submit their list of teams they would consider? Does Henrick lose the C? Just questions, looking forward to your...

Re: Torts

The man is likely on an extended holiday. Sun, family and kids. Besides... he could also be in negotiations to take over the Dept of Player safety ;)

Re: The (in)Consistency of NHL Officiating [aka WTH?!?]

10 games and only that much because of his record.

Though it would be interesting if they handed him a Torres style suspension.

Re: The (in)Consistency of NHL Officiating [aka WTH?!?]

I agree HW. I remember that game clearly. Is it just me or did Calgary make a consistent and conserted effort to injure opposing players this year. I get wanting to play a "truclent" style but come on. You still need to play something the vaguely resembles hockey. I hope Calgary rejoins the league a...

Re: Ron McLean hates the Canucks

I'm not sure if George will be good or bad. The man has some interview skills but I'm not sure what he brings to the hockey table. McLean at least was a longtime ref and sportcaster and Grapes is grapes.... I have no idea how this new chemistry will work. Maybe he is a closet hockey nerd and it'll a...

Re: Canucks Training Camp - News & Notes

Hey to agree with much of the feelings here. Kassian needed to be more in control of his stick and it was a careless accident that had brutally bad consequences. I'm not surprised that the NHL is trying to send a message and hit Kassian hard with heavy early season fine. We all know in 2 months that...

Re: Luongo and Schneider Revisited (or is it continued?)

Question: do Luongo's media relations over the summer even matter? I mean, those of us who logged into a god damned hockey talk message board multiple times during the month of August might think so. Tony Gallagher and the other members of the media who did their jobs and attempted to manufacture c...

Re: Roster Questions

Therefore (bold move): move Daniel to centre. I understand what you are suggesting Ronning but I disagree with how it might be implemented. while I am sure Daniel would embrace the challenge of being a centre, its not a simple skill set you can jump into and succeed at. That's why centres are so co...

Re: Ballard on waivers

Ballard is suffering from the new CBA like a lot of players. With the cap going down, GMs are loathe to part with decent money for players who appear to have under performed. Ballard got a raw deal under AV, but he also didn't play great when he had opportunity - with the exception of pairing with t...

Do the unthinkable and trade lu for another goalie like Miller or Price then. :o NeverEndingCanucksDebacle.
