Re: Playoffs

Maybe let's wait and see if he can crack 50? Tkachuk played at a 59-point pace last season, and was on a 50-point pace as a rookie... Are we gonna say wait and see if Boeser can crack 30 goals? I'd take McAvoy, Keller, or maybe Sergachev ahead of Tkachuk and Olli. But that seems stupid to say, when...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Tkachuk is a mystery but for some reason there seems to be this unsubstantiated sense that he is falling. I find it hard to believe that he will still be on the board at 7. Everyone was drooling over him at the WJCs, calling him the next best pick after Dahlin but he’s falling to 7th. I ain’t buyin...

Yeahno, we're Canuck fans and we have no reason to doubt Juolevi and Virtanen will become big non-rat stars...

He’s not a lot better than mantha. Ritchie sure. Also horvat would feed tkachuk his lunch if he ever got mad enough as would virtanen, both guys are bigger and stronger. Bobby Farnham. Virtanen man handled bobby farnham LOL. Are we watching the same fight? I see Jake hanging on, maybe landing one p...

A Vegas win makes a mockery of the league. Go Genius George.

The parade of former Canuck executives turning up with the Leafs continues. They've hired Laurence Gilman as Assistant GM.

Re: Playoffs

Vegas' management team understands what Sbisa is. He's a marginal player being deployed accordingly (6th in dman TOI in the playoffs) by a good hockey team. The Canucks were betting on Sbisa becoming the guy drafted in the first round and playing in the NHL at 18. Almost like Sutter, they doubled do...

Re: WC 2018

What has happened to Canada’s goaltending. All the other teams goalies put up brick walls against us but ours were sieves? At this tourney, for sure the goaltending was junk. It's too bad Carey Price needed a break after that brutal season. Keep in mind that half of the starting goalies in the NHL'...

Re: WC 2018

2. McDavd is the most talented player in the world, but I’m not sure he’ll ever win a championship. He is like the complete opposite of clutch. He should have done more in this game, especially at the end with the puck on his stick. You just know Crosby would have scored there. He is trending to be...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

The goal this offseason, I think, it to reinforce some of that lost depth (that wasn't deep enough). They aren't good enough to make the move now. The way to do it is by taking on a couple contracts from players that can play but their team needs cap space or has internal payroll pressures. Get pic...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Maybe we "tend to overstate luck", but keep in mind this is a team where a great defenceman was bitten by the only snake in Finland and had 2 teammates' shots deflect and injure him - one smashing his face and fracturing orbital bone, one rupturing his testicle. This is a team where the best prospe...
