Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

I said when we got him that Gudbranson was a minor upgrade on Sbisa. It could be his lack of chemistry thus far with Hutton holding them both back but I thought Sbisa has looked better that Gud so far.

Re: GDT: Sens at Canucks Oct 25/16 7 pm Sp Net Van

Saw the game was on tsn3 which is part of my sports package I pay for. Thought it would be a nice change of pace from John squared. NOPE blackout restrictions apply wtf. Team cant play catch up forever and expect to win. If tryamkin wants to be a millionaire off of 1 season just keep doin what your ...

Re: GTD: Oct 16: Canucks host Hurricanes - 7pm - SN1

There has been a major shift in the forecheck thus far this season. I don't know who gets the credit for revamping it but the forwards have become much better at disrupting breakouts, especially near the opposing blueline. There has been several instances in the first 2 games of sustained pressure d...

Re: 9/30/16 Preseason Canucks at Flames

Labate crunched tkachuk just after he passed it off and got an interference penalty for being bigger. Tkachuk heads to the locker room.

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

According to Murph, off the record, Benning has/is kicking the tires on Subban. Absolutely nothing imminent, he's just kicked the tires. But he would get in on those discussions if there were serious merit. Implication is Montreal isn't trying to trade Subban simple exploring before his NMC kicks i...

Indeed I did forget about him. I do hope his skills translate to NHL. I really want this trade to work I'm just hugely skeptical.
Hutton should put up more points as he matures....
Would love to see him skip the ol sophomore slump

Re: Canucks trade MCCann for Gudbranson

So we'll have edler/Sbisa/Gudbranson/tanev and a rookie tryamkin/pedan on d. The forwards will have to continue to do all of the heavy lifting in the o-zone as the main skill set of everyone except Hutton is chipping the puck into the corner. Here's some research: Chris Tanev career high - 20 points...

Re: Canucks trade MCCann for Gudbranson

Gudbranson has been a disappointment for a #3 pick. At worst he's a slightly bigger and better Shane O'brien. At best he's a slightly better Luca Sbisa.
