Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

The one intangible we have going for us is that Pettersson is more than your average emerging prospect. Hes a franchise type difference maker. Quinn Hughes has some of that same level of elite talent. When you bring up those names, especially Pettersson, it's a good reminder of the adage the best t...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

The drop in play / goal production last year scares me. Reminds me of a year ago when a part of the justification for signing Roussel, Beagle and Schaller was they were all just a year removed from putting up double digits in goals and were expected to "bounce back". Roussel was on track but don't h...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

....felt any player they got at 10 would need 1-3 years development so him playing in the KHL is fine. Exactly how I felt..any player at 10 was realistically going to be a 2-3 year project anyway. We never get a draft step right in (since when, Linden??), best one year wait so what's an extra year ...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Russians come and Russians go (Bure, Chubarov, Koltsov, Tryamkin,..). Instincts tell me we got Russian version Puljujarvi, just hope to God I'm wrong...break the trend Vasili, please, for the love of God prove me wrong.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Bo never registered a single point in the A (only 5 games mind you) and Kesler scored 3 G's in his first 33.

Re: What to do with Hughes

I keep hearing the league is moving towards smaller, faster. I wouldn't be too quick to buy into that, long term. I echo the caution. No matter how the league trends, the one constant is time and space will always be limited in the playoffs. A guy a lot of people wanted, Ehlers, who's blessed with ...

Re: What to do with Hughes

If Patty Kane played D he'd look kinda like QH. Can't help thinking that every time I watch the kid, especially when he does those quick turns with the puck, single-handed on his top hand using his other hand and body to angle/push off opponents...very Kane-like, size not too far off too.

Re: What to do with Hughes

He was owning the latter part of that OT, you just get a feeling something was going to happen. He gets the puck with 7 secs left and sure enough...wow.

Re: GDT: April 5/18 Second last game, ever, for the Sedin twins vs Arizona. 7 PM. Somewhere on SN.

They could of played 1 more season but I for one am glad they are hanging them up while they are still playing very well. Remember Messier in his last few years, God he was awful to watch. Mixed on that. While nice to see them go out on top, it's kind of a painful reminder of what we'll be missing....

Things happen for a reason. Now we know why Brock got injured...so a Sedin can finish their career winning a team scoring title again one last time. One point for Dank on Sat seals it, perhaps Hank can put up 6 pts to go 1, 2. Brock/Elias can own it after that.

Re: GDT: April 5/18 Second last game, ever, for the Sedin twins vs Arizona. 7 PM. Somewhere on SN.

33 - 22 face offs Daniel kinda spoiled the numbers kismet with his 23rd goal but then again is there not a more perfect 2-digit number (just better not score on Sat)? Not to mention the significance of their 3rd brother on the team, who appropriately wears 23, and no better guy to get the other assi...

So stoked for the Jays' game ;) . As far as the tank goes the only thing I'd hate is to drop another spot and catch the Wings. Though even if that does happen I'm content with where we're at and hope for a big win tonight with a shitload of goals. Feeling is Dahlin or bust, right?...or if not Dahlin...

Re: GDT: April 3, 2018 3rd last game, ever, for the Twins vs Golden Knights.

Can you imagine what it would do for Jake's confidence if he converted a couple of those great chances he generated on his own; the wrap around, the power move cutting to the net, and rush in OT. Two of those go in and he's sky high...massive boost to head into the offseason with. He's getting close...

Re: GDT: April 3, 2018 3rd last game, ever, for the Twins vs Golden Knights.

It's apparent we're going to continue to suck real bad for at least another 2-3 years. Just hope the kids can make losing fun like they did tonight. Really encouraging that a couple of guys we were ready to write off not so long ago are keeping us interested. Could maybe even add Gaunce in there wit...

Re: GDT: April 3, 2018 3rd last game, ever, for the Twins vs Golden Knights.

Now I get why the Twins chose now to announce. The tank was likely dead anyway but has there been any thought to it in the past 24 hours?? It was the only reason left to pay attention to this final week of games, but now who gives a shit. In fact kinda hoping for the opposite and we win out to send ...
