Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts + Turris Rumours

A part of Ballard's =/- numbers from last year was his being on the ice in the last minute of play with the goalie pulled for an extra attacker. He mentions this himself. So there are two ways to look at it. One, he is the type of player you want out there in the last minute when you need a goal, or...

Gags one step closer to owning the Stars. Bidding deadline has passed and his was the only bid. The NHl BOG nows needs to approve the sale and assuming the due diligence goes well he should be approved by the end of Nov/early Dec.

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts

I like the deal and I think it makes us stronger....people are talking about Hodgson getting squeezed out of the picture, the guy who really should be concerned is Raymond. At best he is now a 3rd line centre...when he comes back...the way Higgins is playing he will possibly be on the 4th line or o...

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts

The Turris rumour is interesting but I don't see a fit for him here right now. Unless we put him on the 3rd line and move Manny to wing that is. I don't really know if he is an upgrade over Hodgson but in all honesty I haven't really seen him play. He is young enough at 22-23 but he hasn't grabbed a...

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts

The scoop on the deal is that the Canucks have been trying for two seasons to get this guy. They want him to play with Kesler and think he can regain his plus 20+ goals. The other point is that Raymond is far far from coming back and with Strum and Samuelsson just not cutting it MG wanted to make a ...

Re: Canucks Have No Balls

I think the win is always more important than retribution. 2 points is 2 points. We won't change our reputation overnight. All of our players need to man up a little more and show that team toughness they talk about. While I don't advocate a 4th line goon, good for one thing, I do advocate a tougher...

Re: #17 Kesler Should be Back Soon

http://www.vancouversun.com/sports By all logic the KB3/KB4 pairing should be a defensive disaster. But I'm definitely willing to wait and see. No kidding. As I was typing how nice it was to see a shake up on D I was thinking the same thing. If Bad Kev shows up and Keith goes for too many skates th...

Re: #17 Kesler Should be Back Soon

The next challenge for Cody is playing on the wing with a puck dominating winger. In theory, if Cody can hold his own along the boards and on the forecheck, something he still has to improve on, he could be a good fit as a pass-first winger with some skill to compliment Kesler and a strong checking...

Re: #17 Kesler Should be Back Soon

http://www.vancouversun.com/sports/Canucks+Kesler+cent+return+Rangers+Tanev+thrown+Wolves/5562642/story.html All good news as far as I can see. Great to have Kesler back. Good for Hodgson getting a shot on the 2nd line wing. Lord knows that neither Samuellson nor Sturm have deserved it yet. Also gla...

Re: Sturm signed

Sturm really has looked useless I must admit. I'll still reserve judgment though for a few more games but he just hasn't shown that he is even close to contributing to this team.

Re: Bowness on AV...err, I mean the Fans

Ballard should have been dressed for game 7. It was a mistake to sit him when we had so many hobbled out there. Even if he dressed as an extra forward it would have been better since we got nothing from our 4th line anyway.

Re: GDT: Oct 15: Canucks @ Oilers - 7pm - CBC, 1040

It's really hard to get into these games. I mean its nice to watch a Canucks game without all the stress and anxiety that has been attached to them in the not so distant past. But it really is pretty boring hockey. So I wonder if it is hard for fans to get their grove back if it is hard for teams th...

I really didn't like that game. Watching it was like having sandpaper rubbed over my eye balls.

But I do like the PH3 line.

So Zach Stortini has been placed on waivers. Do you take a chance and pick him up if you can?
