Re: Mishandling the Sedins

Let me be clear. I suggest this as the approach for the last 13 games of the season, not necessarily for the playoffs, but hey you never know.

Mishandling the Sedins

I am not in a blind panic about the fact Hank and Dank are slumping. Obviously, I'd like to see that slump come to and end, but sooner or later it will. What I am concerned about is, with the refs collectively swallowing their whistles, is the amount of abuse that Hank and Dank have been receiving a...

Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

Why has Gillis all of a sudden done an about face on his love for skill, ie the Detroit Red Wing model and wanting to dumb down the intelligence and skill level on the team for Don Cherry hockey? Why does he even care about the Bruins when he has to go through teams like Detroit to get to Lord Stan...

Re: BRIAN BURKE'S TORONTO MAPLE Leaves

I can't really disagree with anything that Mr. Pratt has raised here. Burke is a swing for the fences type of GM and all home run hitters strike out a lot as well. So his record is very hit and miss. At the end of the day writing a "Leaves aren't very good" story is about as challenging as writing a...

Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

I think there is a little more sifting through the tea leaves going on here than required. Is a good young player asking for more ice time a bad thing? Would we have been happier if Silent G had asked for less ice time? I'm a believer in Occam's Razor - the simplest explanation is usually the right ...

Re: Tim Thomas -- again

Don't have a problem with Thomas having and expressing political opinions and don't have the least problem with how he conducted himself in the interview. I happen to fundamentally disagree with him, but oh well. TSN however should be kicked in the nuts for their pathetic introduction to the story. ...

Re: GDT - Feb 9, 2012 at Minnesota Wild 5PM S-NET-P

Best 59 minutes of the season? I saw a sloppy game where we defeated a crappy opponent. A win is a win, but calling that one of our best efforts of the year is giving Minnesota way too much credit. After watching Rome and Alberts flail around for the entire game, I certainly hope Ballard has a real ...

Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

I don't really get what all the angst is about. Didn't Tim Thomas lose his starting position to Tukka Rask for a year and then win it back. We have two good goaltenders. Ride the one playing the best and to hell with hurt feelings or contract size.

Players You Hate

I have a special hatred for Pat Kane. Every time he's on the ice I pray for a career ending injury. He's a total little puke who hides behind his team mates. I bet he turtled after punching that cab driver. Brand Marchand earned a special place in my heart in last years playoffs, but I cut him a lit...

Re: Gaglardi buys Dallas

Gaglardi seems like a very genuine hockey fan. I'm always glad when people who love the game take over franchises. I'm not going to go so far as to wish him luck, but I'm glad he was able to find another way to achieve is ambition of being an NHL owner. Wonderhow long until a Canucks RFA gets an ofe...

Re: Bertuzzi/Moore

Hello all. Long timer lurker, occassional poster over at that OTHER site. I have a hard time understanding why folks still get worked up over this ancient history. Does anyone still care about either Moore or Bertuzzi in Vancouver? There are more folks posting in this thread than commented on recent...
