Re: GDT 7/11/15 Vanc in Buffalo 10am SPAC

Ennis didn't do anything all world on that rush that was 100% garbage back checking by Daniel.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Kopitar takes butt end to the face by Reeves, out with upper body injury. NHL calling it an inadvertent head shot, whatever that means. http://video.kings.nhl.com/videocenter/console?id=864560&lang=en Anyone who has played any hockey ever could tell you that was an accidentally on purpose move.

Re: OOTS Oct 2015

Kesler's play style just doesn't bode well for longevity, the Canucks definitely got the best seasons of his career. The same is obviously true for Bieksa but Kev's always had a touch of the casualness that drove the fan base nuts at times. I was hoping for more of a return for Kesler at the time bu...

Re: OOTS Oct 2015

Wonder when getzlaf and Perry inherit Thornton's choker title. Yes they have cup rings but they were not intrical parts of the team that year.

Re: GDT: 13/10/15 Canucks @ Kings 7:30pm SN

The LA forecheck is not what it was a couple of seasons ago. I don't know whether it's that the Canucks just have better puck moving d now or LA's hard hitting style has worn the players down but it just feels different. Also Lucic seemed to be too late to the party to effectively forecheck like LA ...

Re: OOTS Oct 2015

Some dirty ass plays in the la-sjs game. Brown stands up couture with a flying head butt in the neutral zone. Couture clips/hipchecks Lucic as Couture was exiting penalty box and looch wasn't expecting it. Looch then chases couture all the way to the sharks bench and attacks him. Check out @HockeyWe...

Grenier cut today, heading to Utica, hopefully he has another strong year.

Re: 2015 - 2016 Vancover Canucks Training Camp Roster

but anyway, whats the recapture actually going to cost us if he retires early a utility contract? If he retires with one year left on the contract, Canucks get hit with a one-year $8.5M Recapture penalty . http://static.srcdn.com/slir/w786-h393-q90-c786:393/wp-content/uploads/Terminator-Movie-Timel...

Re: Preseason GDT: 29/9/15 Canucks@Sharks 7:30pm SN1

My thoughts: McCann can shoot but he needs to change his pass choices in a hurry. Way to many times he tried to sneak a pass through that was easily picked off when be had better options. Gaunce stayed out for the blood but he also went after the sasquatch a few times. I'm sure benning loved that, G...

Re: Preseason GDT, 9/26. @ 7:00PM, Flames at Canucks: SN

Young guys played hard, most veterans didn't. Hutton is quickly acclimating to the pro game. I think a year in the AHL would be good for him, it can be difficult for college guys to adjust to the pro schedule (82 games instead of 30). Defense vets Tanev, Hamhuis and Edler with some glaring and somet...

Re: Preseason GDT 9/21 Sharks at Canucks - 7:30 -

These Hockeyville preseason games are always awkward low scoring games in tiny arenas with no room to move, so the score is no surprise really. Bo looked like he really was trying to make the team all over again. Sbisa looked poor even against preseason chump players. Gaunce looked like he is aiming...

Depends on his hockey IQ. I know the twins prefer to play with guys who know where to be in order to be an option for them rather than guys like Steve Bernier.

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Sbisa is already the whipping boy for a majority of the fanbase. He'll have to dig his way out and play above his head just to become neutral with fans. Sutter will be compared to Bonino as well so it'll depend on how they compare. If Vey is outplayed in camp by 1 or more of the prospect centres but...

Nothing much from Cassels, Gaunce or McCann
Not sure what you mean with regards to Gaunce. He just created a goal by driving to the net and I think he's scored a goal too
