Re: Fantasy Talk

Hey, Ohdee, guess you like what you see, eh? Adam Larsson logged most minutes of any Devils player last night, and he's an 18-yo rookie blueliner..... Eric Staal doesn't look quite comfortable facing him... :lol: http://gfx2.aftonbladet-cdn.se/image/13759734/480/fourByThree/cb224b12ff7ef/adam-larsso...

Re: The Shoot out

Luongo is not a great reaction goaltender - his shootout save % is not particularaly good. Can't expect to win them on his shoulders. Canucks shooters historically have not been all that impressive either in the shootout. I expect the Canucks to lose more than they win again in OT this season. *shr...

Snygg övergång.

Well, Lee Goren was mentioned in the first post and Sweden in the second so,,, voila! :-)

(And speaking of former Canucks in Sweden, I threw in Krog and Moran for good measure...) :wink:

Re: 11/12 Regular Season Thread

Weise ain't going to get better if AV only gives him 6 minutes of ice time. TBF, Weise was in Sweden Tuesday when he was claimed. As is Lee Goren. He has 11 points (4+7) playing for Skellefteå in the SEL. That leaves him in third place in SEL scoring so far. Jason Krog has 10 points (4+6) in 8 game...

Re: GDT: Oct 6 - Canucks host Penguins - 7pm - CBC, Versus H

Just watched the game "on demand" and i'm not worried, this is a team which is going deep again. They were better than the Pens and just had to bury their chances, normally an easy win and now 1 point lost. Ballard as a nearly equal substitute to Ehrhoff, who the fuck is Christian ? Some 2.1 billio...

Re: GDT: Oct 6 - Canucks host Penguins - 7pm - CBC, Versus H

I agree with Reef to an extent. Luongo is over-rated. Furthermore I get the impression that other players like playing against him. Is he good enough with it all with? Probably, if he keeps the meltdowns to a minimum. Team Canada WAS stacked Roberto, get over it. Right, so the players responding to...

Re: GDT: Oct 6 - Canucks host Penguins - 7pm - CBC, Versus H

I'll be honest, I missed the entire second period watching the Yankees/Tigers game on the TVs in the hospitality suite. Not saying I am not a big Canucks fan, but it's baseball playoffs, and I love baseball...so yeah. Forgive me. Skipping hockey to watch middle aged men in pajamas playing stickball...

Re: The Extreme Weather Thread

It's been in the 80's here for the last couple of weeks - great now, but we'll be paying for it in the winter. In the 80's, eh? Wow, I've only ever experienced that in a sauna... :wink: Edit: Hmm...

Five of the top ten rookies listed are Swedes, and out of the other five one is called Gudbranson and one Johansen... :P
