Re: LOL

A lot of chatter out there today that Benning is a strong candidate for GM of the Year if the team keeps it up Canucks HF would implode into itself. Like a reverse Big Bang, if that were to happen Where was the chatter coming from? No love for Joe Sakic? Are they (Avs) exceeding “expectations”? If ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

McCann is also 4 years younger, plays multiple positions and makes a fraction of Pearson’s cap hit. Penguins also have three years of control beyond this one. Pearson has been a real good fit for this team because he's a two-way player with enough offense. People make fun of his empty netters, but ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

The lack of offence is a little alarming Probably top out as a 15 goal scorer in the pro's, but a solid 3rd liner, Matt Cooke styles just less playing on the edge. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=24173 Hansen as well was a 10-15 goal scorer. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pd...

Rick Dhaliwal: Lockwood on signing with Canucks, “that is the plan every since I got drafted by Vancouver, hopefully it works out for both sides. My dream was to play 4 years at Michigan, just like the dream to play in Vancouver, being apart of the Canucks organization.” dobber prospects: Lockwood ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Vegas shit cans Gallant. Doesnt that seem a little strange? There are a handful of coaches that are superior to other NHL coaches at getting more wins from their personnel than an average NHL coach. Gallant is probably one of them. Like canning Laviolette (who is at least average), this is a move t...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

They should have kept Laviolette. We know Pete can really knock sense into players when required. Yup. https://media3.giphy.com/media/rZrDS2e8ft91m/giphy.gif And Lord knows they need it. If Rinne and Saros are going to play like they have, none of this matters. Preds are scoring tons of goals, but ...

Sutter, Loui, Schaller, Leivo, Baertschi, Goldobin... should not be in the organization next season.

If you don't get a single thing back, it's still addition by subtraction.
Come on, Hank. The team has looked lost since Leivo went down.

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Rafferty will be a step back defensively. Tryamkin will also be a step back from Tanev. Christopher Tanev is a very difficult to replace player. As is pretty clear when he's not in the lineup. Why is he good? He makes the fewest stupid decisions in his own end (doesn't generally overplay his man, l...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

^^^ Did I see a line here somewhere that said; "they coach systems" ? ;) If that is true, it would indicate not all coaches coach the same. Pete, Brock and TJ are immune to dump and chase. Not all systems are the exact same, but it isn't like there are great variations. Zone entry is particularly o...
