Re: 2014-15 Utica Comets

Just a minor clarification Clam. He didn't get back to back game seven shutouts. He did get back to back series clinching shutouts though. One was game seven, the other game six. Still your points are all the same valid. Backing up Miller may not allow him those recovery games as you suggest. He ne...

Re: 2014-15 Utica Comets

Don't know if this is true but read over on CDC that AHL Live Calder Cup games will be free on their app using the promo code CALDERCUP. http://ahl.neulion.com/ Game one goes Saturday. **edit** I just set up an account on AHL Live. When you go in to set up your account and get to billing informatio...

Doing it in style! I don't recall a Canucks farm team ever having this kind of success.

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Benning on TSN today: On Markstrom: Likes his intensity and compete level. Reminds him a lot of a young Ben Bishop who he saw a lot of in the East. Has an edge to him, hates losing and has the Bishop like ability to bounce back after a bad game. After a loss or bad game by him he shows up the next ...

Buffalo needs a tender, take one of their picks.
I'm sure Benning would prefer that scenario...unless he feels indebted to his old Beantown buddy. If it's the Oilers it should include a prospect or higher pick.

Re: 2014-15 Utica Comets

Little irritated that Green refuses to throw in McCann who has a higher ceiling than 99.9% of the entire Utica roster. Gotta put priority developing abead of career minor leaguers whom everyone knows will never get a sniff of the NHL. Hell, Grand Rapids is throwing Larkin into the fray tonight. Tyl...

Re: The Current Predicament

Exactly IN, it's not that we didn't draft the biggest names, it's that there's barely any of our picks from that era of drafting that even made the bigs. If we had the odd player exceed draft expectations (for example, Cole Cassels so far or Edler back in the day) we're in a much better situation no...

The Current Predicament

Why are the Canucks in their current roster situation? I think this sums it up rather nicely. From an article about the Young Stars tourney a few years back. Top draft picks Cody Hodgson (10th over-all in 2008) and Jordan Schroeder ( 22nd over-all in 2009) will highlight Canucks players expected to ...

Good experience having Virtanen and McCann involved.
McCann was a spectator.
Shinkaruk, Gaunce, Virtanen, & Baertschi played in the game.
I'm aware, just meant having them there in the environment for a playoff run. Good experience for the pair.

Re: 2014-15 Utica Comets

1-buzz victory, doesn't get much more clutch than a 35 save shutout for Markstrom in game 7 following a loss! Jacob is now 5-0 in the playoffs following a loss. Grenier continues his hot streak, scoring the game winner in the 3rd. Good experience having Virtanen and McCann involved. Onward. Very ni...

Re: Who's Getting Traded?

By trying to please everyone you end up pleasing no one. I think there is an agenda to remain a playoff team...but by doing so the rebuild will never happen as effectively as it should. Linden has the agenda that comes down from Aquaman and Benning is stuck between a rock and a hard place...and top ...

Regarding Ferland and Bieksa, IN.
