Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts

A few more things I really like about this trade..... 1. It gives Vigneault another solid option to put out with the Sedin's following a PK where Burrows is a bit gassed. 2. It gives our 2nd PP unit a nice boost while providing Gillis with a very diplomatic way of removing Samuelsson as an option fo...

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts

Will Booth just be the next name on the list of ex-Panters making $4+M/year that Vigneault doesn't like and sits on the bench? :roll: I'm pretty stoked on this trade actually, Samuelsson has been a bit of a lone wolf out there at times and has never found much lasting chemistry with anyone, often tu...

Re: GDT: Canucks vs Predators | Oct 20 @ 7pm | SNET-VAN, 104

I guess we'll now see if Shanahan is going to be the unbiased disciplinarian that his predecessor was not, or if he is going to give a star player a pass on what was a very dangerous, uncalled for, and somewhat late (for NHL's definition of late see Rome on Horton) hit from behind. My money is on We...

Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

Luongo needs a fresh start somewhere, maybe in Chicago playing for the Wolves. At this point, especially following games 6 and 7 against Boston, I would put him on Waivers to the AHL and be happy for the compensation if a team like Phoenix claimed him. Just the fact that we'd have his cap space cle...

Re: Vigneault Or His Horses

While I agree with you mathonwy for the most part, this team has now choked in epic fashion in the playoffs 3 years in a row, and while our goalie has been pretty piss poor in those, the team has never really supported him with much offense or defense in those games. As for Jovorock, I'm gonna have ...

Vigneault Or His Horses

I will preface this OP by saying that I am as quick to jump all over our starting goalie (hell, any of our players for that matter) for performance versus salary matters. That is all, now to the point..... We have all watched, we have all listened, we have all discussed, and we have all pointed the ...

Re: Toughness Poll - what do we need?

Oh, I see Rummy already handled the Patrick Roy stuff. Disregard.

I wasn't referring to anyone on this board by my "who is dumb enough" comment, I was referring to the Ferraro comment.

Re: Toughness Poll - what do we need?

Who is dumb enough to compare Luongo to Patrick Roy? Roy had cemented his name in NHL history on the side of a cup by the end of his rookie year! Roy won how many Cups? How many Conn Smythe's? Behind what caliber of Montreal team? Oh yeah, that's right, his Hab's DIDN'T win the President's Trophy......

Re: GDT: Oct 18: Canucks vs Rangers - 7:00pm, TSN

So Lundqvist is on his game tonight. What a display, and the Canuck's shooters are not getting off great shots when they have a good look, even when they do, Lundqvist closes the door, stops the rebound, and then finds the puck. The Canuck's also have no back door support to speak of on offense. At ...

Re: Province sports looking for new blogger

Spock and UW would be excellent choices. Doc is not politically correct enough to write in a Liberal city like Vancouver (most certainly his blogs would lead to the death of a security guard somewhere).....though for the record, the majority of us would be highly entertained. The number one choice f...

The Big Apple comes calling tonight at Rogers Arena bringing us our first look at Brad Richards in a Ranger's jersey. New York will be looking for their first win of the season against a Canuck's team that has been less than stellar and is struggling to put together their first consecutive wins of t...

Re: Toughness Poll - what do we need?

I think a gritty 2-way forward with some size, speed, and tenacity would be a great addition. I don't much care is said player can fight though. I'm also not sure if this is a "need" or a "want". After all we did beat 2 of the toughest western conference teams quite easily with a team very similar ...
