Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

I'm thinking Labarbera. Most would probably be happy with him.

Re: GDT: R1G4 Canucks @ Sharks 7:00 PM PST TSN

Where would be drafting if we lose tonight? 15th spot? Nah, best we could draft is 23rd, I think. Just like last season - the highest regular season finish outside of the final four playoff teams gets the 26th choice. With Chicago, Pittsburgh, Anaheim, Montreal, Boston, St. Louis, and Los Angeles f...

Re: Canucks Call Up Jensen, Kassian demoted

I don't really get Kassian being sent down, he'll get as much "conditioning" in Van as he will in Chicago. Be nice to see what Jensen can do though.

Holy bad defense Batman. Be nice if we could make a save but damn, talk about wide open looks.

Re: GDT - Thursday Mar 21 - Van @ PHO 7:00 SNET

Well as per Bob McKenzie & Kuzma on Twitter, Edler has a phone hearing scheduled with The Sheriff for his hit on Smith. I don't really get it, but if I try to look at it objectively, i guess you could say the hit was on a vulnerably unsuspecting player, because he did not expect to get hit. I'm sure...

Re: 3rd line center - deadline RENTALS?

I saw a tweet of Kuzma's article in the Province today where he throws out the idea of Loungo for Ribeiro. How's that for a rental. One snippet is, "The Canucks would be hard pressed to find a player that would impact their team more." I see how it would make us better in the short term, but man is...

Re: GDT - Mar 19 - St. Louis @ Vancouver - 7:00 PST SNET

It almost seems like AV is trying to deflect the attention away from the other issues. I mean he can't really expect any of us to believe that it's all on his goalies, can he? It seems absurd. Now granted, its hard to really make any sort of judgement without some type of context on his quote, but s...

Re: WTF Where's the GDT? Mar 18 MIN @ VCR 7PM S-NET

You gotta feel bad for Ballard. You know that's going to cost him some playing time, most likely be watching for a while. Tanev's reaction was pretty funny though. He had the WTF look. There sure isn't very much offensive punch with this iteration of the team without some key players. I think it'll ...

Re: what has to happen to get the ship on course?

Just perusing NHL.com's Canuck stats and there were a few I found them very telling, and at least a little depressing. Apologies to the Advanced Stats crowd if they aren't in-depth enough. :roll: The Canucks are sitting 14th in both G/G (2.74) and GA/G (2.67) . It doesn't take a genius to figure out...

Re: GDT - Canucks vs. Predators (Mar 14/2013)

It was just one of those games. Rinne has been pulled his last 3 starts in Vancouver, so not sure if lucky is the word. Hell, even the weak Sedin deke worked. Usually it ends up being a pass into the pads, but Mason played it like Hank was Malik + Datsyuk + Kane. Canucks deserved the win. I was als...

Re: GDT: Mar 12 - Canucks in Ohio for another BJ on SPAC -

Boll's hit on Barker.....ummmm......sure, I like it, but the lack of a call completely flies in the face of the NHL's stance on head shots and hitting players in vulnerable positions.Kassian's penalty for hitting from behind? Pretty weak IMO. He even made the effort to get around to the side and co...

Re: GDT: Mar 12 - Canucks in Ohio for another BJ on SPAC -

Gillis really needs to find another centre soon, not to state the obvious but this team is missing that badly. Everything is thrown out of whack as AV tries to fit round holes in square pegs. Until we get some stability up the middle I think we'll see lot's more games like this. As many posters have...

There's somethig to be said for facing adversity, which outside of the playoffs this team hasn't done in a few years. Maybe this stretch of ass will help them in the long run.... The voice of reason! There is no long run. This team needs 15 to 18 more wins to make the playoffs this season. If they ...
