Re: Flames get better. Sutter is gone

They are canning Sutter, but asked him to help Feaster 'transition' the team?? I believe the actual spin on this is that D Sutt 'stepped down'. What are the Flamers going to do? When your old and highly paid, with only a couple assets (Iginla & Kipper) where do you go? They have not much for draft ...

Re: NHL POWER RANKINGS: CANUCKS AND PHILADELPHIA DEC.27/28,

I believe that it was in January (leading up to the Olympic break) last season that Henrik racked up several multi-point games to catch up to and pull away from OV and Crosby in the scoring race, too.

Re: Flyers vs Canucks.

Is any other team as strong down the middle as Vancouver is with Henrik, Kesler and Manimal? Huge night for the second line, two goals for Manimal :oops: and another quiet, three-point night for Henrik. And with MayRay waiting in the wings to return to the ice, the kind of team speed they can put on...

Re: Team toughness - Fighting

Being skilled, crazy-fast, and punishing on Special teams and in the FA circle, 6; big, mean, tough, and talented - 2. :mrgreen:

Jody Shelley gets a two-game suspension for being an idiot.

PItB said it well here, too; toughness often means taking the cheap shots and not retaliating - http://passittobulis.blogspot.com/2010/ ... en_21.html

Re: Team toughness - Fighting

How did the Hawks beat us, firstly talent including speed and scoring, and then physicality and by that I mean they won more puck battles went to the net more. Was it toughness as shown in pre lockout no, but the Hawk players were certainly for the most part not content to be perimeter players. Mor...

Re: Is Cory Starting?

@PRATT: It's one game. Did you even watch it? "An honest defensive game?" Edler and Ehrhoff had their worst game with bad pinches and Bieksian-giveaways through the game.

Re: GDT: Canucks host Canes - 6pm - Snet

Also, Raymond gets his shot with the Sedins. Not a good fit at all. This is exactly the same reaction I had when I heard that AV was going to throw Alex Burrows out there with the twins a couple of years ago, and honestly, I had the same reaction when I heard about MayRay with the Twins. Stranger t...

Re: Ballard Out With Concussion

If they have no intention of putting him in the lineup, then what's the point of sitting him in the pressbox every game? If he's not good enough or ready enough to play here, then send him to the minors and let him play and develop there. I believe Parent has to clear waivers. With the Canucks' aff...

Re: Ballard Out With Concussion

Why wouldn't AV give Ryan Parent a chance to show his stuff? Because the team needs a win in the worst way, and playing a young kid who is on his third team in two years probably isn't going to get you there. Word on the street is Parent has had plenty of chances to stick but never could (Philly, N...

Re: The Hockey News predicts Canucks to win it all

Apparently, picking the Canucks to win the West remains quite fashionable as Pierre Lebrun has shown ... This despite having two (Salo and Ballard) being on the limp or worse to start the season and another (BXA) being a prime candidate for the waiver wire... How is Bieksa even rumored to be anywhe...
