Re: GDT: Season Opener @ Calgary - 7pm SN, TVA Sports 2

Edler is lucky he isn't already a -3. Brutal giveaway on his first shift. Still plenty of time left to pad his stats. Sbisa with another brutal giveaway early in the second period. Makes Special Kev look like a hockey genius. The defense is gonna be fun this year! Hansen's brutal hands leads to bot...

very impressed with Stanton's wheels to come back on that break away.

Re: GDT: Coilers @ Canucks, Oct 4/14, 7PM PDT, SNP/W/O/E/One

I don't buy the "vets do not want to extend themselves in the pre season" argument for a second. FFS, they were playing the oilers. And even worse, playing the oilers with 9 starters not even dressed against your vancouver canucks starting lineup.. ! Forget about compete level in preseason, what abo...

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Coilers, Oct 2/14, 6PM PDT, SN360

The best thing about the game last night for me was Edler. He looked engaged, played well positionally, jumped up at the appropriate times, and most importantly played with confidence. I know, it's pre season, its the coilers, it's one game.... But hey, the best quality a long suffering Canuck fan h...

Re: Canucks Training Camp 2014 - News and Notes

For sure, the issue with Kassian is for consistent focus, consistent effort, and motivation. Although, the fact that you are playing in the show in front of 18,000 should be motivation enough. I think he needs to make more than a baby step this year, and based on his end of season play, is easily ab...

Hell both he and Bonino like to pass, we could see Burrows with 50 :
Yes, sometimes I think Kassian passes too much. We saw more and more examples of that right towards the end of the year. That being said, I agree, if someone can drain those passes, I am all for that outcome.

Re: Canucks Training Camp 2014 - News and Notes

For what it's worth, the term "troll" is generally thrown around more than a Canuck at a 2011 cup final series final game. I would class this forum as mainly just trash talk, with the exception of ....wait for it...... wait for it.... the Pauser. I actually find most of it, great comic relief, becau...

Re: Which rookie(s) will make the team this year?

I agree with comments that Horvat, for reasons already stated by many, should be the one that sticks. Remember Linden and Benning's comments that offence begins with defence, and of all rookies, Horvat is the most responsible two way player. However...... I really really like the Shinkster.. I think...

Re: Young Stars Tourney

I liked what I saw from Horvat too, but I think we are in the minority here. I liked what I saw from Gaunce and Shinkaruk as well. These 3 looked closer to being NHLers than the rest. Although it's really tough to make an assessment based on a crap tourney like this. Subban and Zalewski were intrig...

Re: Young Stars Tourney

I agree to a large extent with the pond hockey etc linemate analogy, but Horvat, for instance, who doc mentioned, did stick out in a very positive two-way-hockey kind of a way, and he definitely would not be classified as a dangler. I also would also add that I do not think the goaltending was a pro...

Re: Young Stars Tourney

I was at the game last night. Some of my observations underline what others have said. Horvat: Probably the best view of ice, and best 200 ft. player of the prospects. He would have to step it up a few notches to make the team based on what I saw. I am thinking that time on the farm is needed, which...

Re: July 1, 2014, (and beyond) trades, signings , rumours

Lack + Gaunce + Hansen + 2015 first round pick.

I like that! Kane would be a great asset to acquire, and aga-wise fits very well also.
