Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I don't understand what 'coaching style' has to do with Brock's (or anyone else's) offence. Coaches don't control wether someone shoots or passes. Dumps and chases or dangles. At best, they tell a player to shoot more and show video on a higher percentage play. Coaches teach defense and systems (li...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

It may appear to some, in particular the people we have to listen to, that Brock's game has defensive deficiencies but that is not what I see. His speed has improved greatly and if you watch, he more often then not is the first forward back to the D-zone. His speed is deceivingly fast. Look, I thin...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Boucher is an AHL’er, nothing more nothing less. He can’t skate nor play defence. He’s not even worth talking about, but good for him 98% of the time players that can't skate or play defense are worthless in the NHL. And then there are the Dino Ciccarellis, Tomas Holmstroms, Patrick Hornqvists. Bou...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Question for y'all.. What is wrong with Boeser? He hasnt looked like the same player this season at all. Hes a step slower, weaker on pucks and is taking forever to get his usually fast shot off. Is there an injury? Is he serving his sophmore slump season now? Is it the willy nylander effect? Somet...

Re: GDT: Canes @ Canucks, 12/12/19, 1900hrs

Damn entertaining game even if it had no scoring. Full credit to a very very fast and tenacious forechecking carolina group over there. I havent seen a team on the canucks all over the ice so quick yet this season. Carolina was extremely aggressive on the PK and the Canucks suffered. I recall a gam...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

. Let him take his time and maybe he can come back later in the season when we're trying to make the playoff push. Seeing as were already out of it I'd say the push is well under way. The time to win is now. If the canucks are going to make it they're going to need Pettersson, Boeser and Horvat to ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

“I’m still picking Dahlin over Quinn Hughes” - Doyle Me too, Chef. I love what Hughes can do. Great pick. He has everything that was advertised and has improved his shot and gap control. Some might say genius pick; some might say no brainer. But there were a few out there who were very suspicious o...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

If he wants to play on one of the top two lines here it will be on the wing. This is probably right, but I really question this idea of lines 1 and 2 being the "scoring" lines and lines 3 and 4 being the checking lines. To me, the breakdown to think about is top 3, middle 6, 4th line. A successful ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Not sure what other chip Burke was using to get the Hawks to play ball. Ohlund? Jovanovski? Very doubtful there. Aucoin, though a good D man wasn’t getting it done. The Hawks loved McCabe. How do you think Jovo, Ohlund, and McCabe were valued at the time? McCabe the best? These were three defenseme...

Re: Sens @ Canucks 7pm pst. Snp

Some nights everything goes in. None of those first period goals were really Nilsson's fault -- he might have played the Gaudette-Roussel two on one better, but even playing it better it is a high quality scoring chance. Demko made huge saves in this game, and he gave the Canuck skaters the ability ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Adam Gaudette has arrived. He was s beast last night, especially on Roussel and Fatburgers goal Any value from a 5th rounder is terrific. He does look better this season. Speed concerns aren't eliminated for me (more first two steps quickness than skating speed), but I think he is playing with moun...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Miller has been better than expected. I knew he was a good player but he really seems to be fitting in well on this team and seems to have embraced a leadership role. I think that's right. Thing is, this really is the first opportunity he's had to play that kind of role. That he can is a bonus. Tha...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Jeff Paterson Canucks say Roussel is close. Considering options for him now including a possible stint in Utica 11:13 AM · Nov 22, 2019 f That would surprise me somewhat. Considering the type of game he plays, why waste it down there? IMO, he would be at least as much of a target for the AHL crashe...
