Sauve and Anthony...who knows but there's a chance from all I've read. Agree 100% .. our farm looks better than ...

dr dork said: why on earth does our PK suck ? Why on earth did it suck last year ? With Luongo, Kesler, Burrows, Johnson, Hansen, Raymond, Mitchell and Salo our PK should be near the top of the league. Is it execution or coaching ?

Island Nucklehead said : You're a joke if you're actually trying to compare Kyle Chipchura to Cody Hodgson. just pointing out that a first round draft choice .. even if he has had a great junior career is not a lock to make the NHL... and its a fair comparison..

Re: Cody Hodgson Skipping World Juniors

A lot of posts about Hodgson.. but a reality break is needed.. There is no guarantee he would even make the Canucks - let alone be a " star ".. Check out what happened to this guy who was a Center and Captain on Canada's Gold medal team... 2005-06: Served as captain of the Raiders and led the team i...

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Nashville - 5pm - Snet-HD

Tonight the Canucks sure didn't look like a team headed for the playoffs.. too sloppy play... too many penalties and not enough urgency in their play... Luongo was ok.. not great. Road record is terriible.. 6 wins .. 10 losses.. PP isn't good.. Kesler lucky goal breaks his goal slump but not much el...

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Nashville - 5pm - Snet-HD

I don't care if the Hurricanes got beat by the Victoria Salmon Kings..... the only reason they won against the Canucks is because our 2 top lines and our top dmen played bloody terrible hockey. Now if they want to salvage the trip they have to beat the Pred's Maybe they have enough pride to come bac...

Re: GDT: Canucks in Carolina - 10:30 AM start - Snet

I even say it when the Canucks play a complete stinker. You're going to lose, normally you play less than well (shall we say) when you lose. I don't get why people make a big deal about it. Its no big deal... if we miss the playoffs?... because with efforts like this.. thats exactly what will happe...

Re: Canucks Back On Track?

3 games ago.. goals against average was 3... What a difference a week makes. But its hard to make a prediction until we see a little more discipline and consistency to the Canucks games. We are also #1 in Penalty minutes against most of the penalties are undisciplined and uncalled for... and do need...

Re: Hawks Sign Trio

Fred Said : Comparing him to Henrik Sedin is total lunacy. Is that a serious comment? Henrik's last four season point totals are : 82, 76, 81, 75 Kesler's are: 59, 37, 16, 23. Sorry Fred.... my bad.. should have been comparison of first 4 seasons of both players.. Though this year he seems to be on...

Re: GDT: Canucks in Philly - PPV -4 pm

Hoping to see Raycroft get the start tonight. Luongo hasn't got a good record in b2b games and this is going to be a tough physical game . Danny Briere is back in Phillies line up and can be a game breaker. Hoping the Canucks can play another good defensive game. ( also hoping SOB smacks Pronger aro...

Re: Hawks Sign Trio

Kesler at 4 million would be a steal ! He's got about the same numbers as Hank had for most of the last 4 years. Plus he is a little bigger .. more aggresive and probably our best penalty killer. 5 mill might be closer. Right now he is on pace for 75 points playing with second liners.. Hopefully he ...

Re: Hawks Sign Trio

All I am saying is this. Maybe use Hodgson and Schneider to get another "franchise player" that is aged anywhere from 26-29. Going to be tough to bring in more talent. Kesler will be wanting at least 5.. 6 mill..add that to Sedin's , Luongo plus 4 dmen at 3.5 mill... and the 2 mill players. Burrows...
