Re: 2015-16 Utica Comets

Given the surgery Linden/Benning performed the previous summer, they deserved the benefit of doubt. I wasn't one of those bitching about the moves this summer, mostly because I'm a draftist and taking a step backwards was music to my ears, but it is interesting to see that they had a clear plan for ...

Re: 2015-16 Utica Comets

Bo was 0'fer in his first handful of games in the A as well (though he showed better at camp than Cass)…wouldn't worry too much about the numbers at this point. Shink could be a replacement for Sven but I don't see that happening as long as Jake and Jared are in the line up. With Gaunce in the mix, ...

Re: GDT: 7/10/15 Canucks @ Flames 7pm SN

Good post. I mostly agree with it except (even though I have been saying it myself) there are teams who come out of nowhere to finish strong due to luck, injuries and the hockey gods. I liked what I saw too but it is a long season. True, like the Flames last year. But how often do those teams end u...

Re: GDT: 7/10/15 Canucks @ Flames 7pm SN

Back to the game... What I liked compared to years past, even the Kes years, is skill is apparent throughout the top 3 lines (remember how bad the 2nd line was last year). Takes major pressure off the twins to not have to carry them every night..tho they did again tonight. But that's something they,...

Re: GDT: 7/10/15 Canucks @ Flames 7pm SN

Try watching decades of failure. You learn to cheer for your team regardless and not get stressed out as in the end it's just a game and you have a real life. So learn to look at the bright side as in the end you don't have a choice anyways; this is your team. And when they do happen (because you k...

Re: GDT: 7/10/15 Canucks @ Flames 7pm SN

And what the rest of us are looking forward to: - Bounce-back year from Miller. - Horvat and Verbs get some chemistry going; a 2nd line with some punch. - Bart proves to be a bonafide 2nd liner, giving us a true top 6. - Sutter is the new Kesler. - Hutton wins rook of the year. - McCann excels runn...

Re: GDT: 7/10/15 Canucks @ Flames 7pm SN

^ How easy will it be for you "stress-wise" when the wins start to pile up? :evil: They won't. But if they somehow do (like last year) and this time the younguns are the biggest reason for them, then I might be back to stressing over losses. Lot to ask tho. BTW all 14 teams to miss the playoffs are...

Re: GDT: 7/10/15 Canucks @ Flames 7pm SN

Here we are at the start of another season, ho-hum. I like the fact that this will be an easy season for me stress-wise. The hardest thing will be to constantly remind myself not to get upset and analyze losses, of which there will be many, too much as a shitty season is ultimately what I want. So w...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Yeah, there were clearly ways we could've protected the asset, and it does suck that we didn't. I can't stand leaving ourselves exposed like that. The question for me though is what kind of an 'asset' did we lose. A few years ago Corrado looked like another Tanev and I was pretty stoked about him. B...

Re: 2015 - 2016 Vancover Canucks Training Camp Roster

I generally like to see prospects slowly go through the ropes, bide their time, hone their skills, and develop physically and mentally before thrusting them into the NHL. I think a year or 2 in the AHL is a great thing for most prospects. Preaching to the choir, my friend. I'm the most patient fan ...

Re: 2015 - 2016 Vancover Canucks Training Camp Roster

Not sure why we're so hung up on wasted 2nd Rounders. I guess those picks have the potential to pan out into a good player. Most fans here tend to like the players JB drafts with his picks; we like his scouting background and his ability to evaluate young players. Plus, he likes draft picks right? ...

Re: 2015 - 2016 Vancover Canucks Training Camp Roster

Let Hutton get his feet wet in the AHL, let him play a ton of minutes down there and let him learn in a safe environment. It's a ballzy move by JB for sure. Asset management vs. competitive culture. Tough one but ultimately the right choice, a no-brainer really. Forget top 4, Hutton imo was easily ...

Re: 2015 - 2016 Vancover Canucks Training Camp Roster

Not sure why we're so hung up on wasted 2nd Rounders. Sure I get the lottery ticket thing but 2nd rounders in Canucks currency is basically worthless. 4 of last 5: Mallet, Rodin, Sauve, Ellington. Geez we at least got 75 games and 10 goals out of Vey..as useless as he is..but that's still 67 games a...

Re: 2014-15 Utica Comets

I remember tracking Kesler's first stint as a pro in the A. Think he had a couple goals and a few points in 30 something games and I thought hey as long as he becomes a solid 3rd/4th line shutdown type NHLer it's better than a bust. He got called up same year and stuck but showed nothing to indicate...
