Re: GDT: Mar 7 - Canucks in Ohio for BJ on SPAC - 4 PM

Good points Per. Normally I'd rip on someone for comparing hockey and chess, but in the case of this team both are about equally exciting to watch these days..... although I think a concussion would make life harder on a fan right now as it requires an incredible amount of focus to actually stay tu...

Re: OOTS...2013

Sooo…..we’re halfway-ish through the season and have not pulled ahead of our lame duck divisional foes at all. The west is tighter than {insert joke here}, and we are stumbling of late. With a win tonight over Chicago and a Canuck loss to San Jose, Minnesota will take the division lead. It seems lik...

Re: So, who would you like in a return for Luongo

I'm reading between the lines here a bit, but GIllis seemed to indicate last night on After Hours that things were a little dry at the moment (that should be pretty obvious). The reported trade that he had in the works doens't seem to be there right now, and as many people have assumed, he also indi...

There are many around the NHL surprised to hear Colorado has matched Calgary's offer sheet for O'Reilly.

Details
Well that didn't take long...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Correct me if i'm wrong, but if O'Reilly was here next year, at 6.5m would he not be the highest paid on the team (assuming Loungo is gone). If you look at it that way the offer is insane, but props to Calgary i suppose. It just seems like it is really short sighted. Why wouldn't they try and offer ...

Re: GDT: Feb 24 - Canucks @ Detroit Rock City 2:00PM SNET-P

Didn't see the game, but giving up eight is slightly embarrassing. Especially to a team that played less than 20hrs before, pretty disappointing effort. Why on earth did Loungo stay in the whole game? Was there any explanation or rationalization given? It seems pretty crazy for a coach to do that, ...

Re: OOTS...2013

Well there is finally another NW team in the playoff picture as the Wild knocked off the Coil last night. It would be nice if more than 1 NW team made the playoffs this year. Luckily the SE clearly has the title of sad sack division as of now. From the same game Taylor Hall will probably/won't/might...

Re: I Cannot Believe it is a Suspension Thread

I seriously lost all the tiny respect for Mary... What a loser... No wonder he fits in so well with the Hawks. I don't know, I think Hossa deserves some credit. Just look at the dedication he showed to his craft. I mean how many other actors are willling to lie face down on the ice for that length ...

Re: Van at Chicago - 5:30 PT on SNET-P and 1040

That was some game to watch. Talk about hanging your goalie out to dry. I can’t recall but it seems like it’s been a while since we scored with the goalie pulled, so good on them. Kesler is still trying to find his defensive game, but I believe that’s only a matter of time. I think Garrison should b...

Re: GDT: Feb 4 - Canucks @ Oil 6:30 PM - SNet

We played a great game 5 on 5. Special teams on the other hand...just a tad inconsistent.

I was pretty sure we'd have a worse record than this by the 10ish game mark. I'm pleasantly surprised.

It sure will be nice when we get arguably the most valuable forward on our team back.

Re: So, who would you like in a return for Luongo

No. If Gillis wants some jam....Komarov is looking like a Jarko....Jarko Ruutuu when he was good. I still think Luo wont be traded till the deadline or maybe draft. +1 I watched the laughs game yesterday and all he does is hit. He'd be a fan favourite. Him alone is not enough of a return for Loungo...

Re: GDT...blahcocks n nucks

Really nice to get the win, good on Lou for coming up large in the shootout. Man oh man did our PP ever look crappy in the 3rd. There has already been at least a couple of games this year when our PP has had multiple chances in the 3rd period of games and come up short. I'm not sure what the issue i...
