Re: Canucks News and Notes

Fuck that. How is he a distraction. Burrows said something on the ice to a guy years ago. O'Sullivan hasn't played a NHL game since 2011-12, and he only suited up for 23 of them in that final year with the oh so amazing and talent laden Coyotes. Now he's dragging this shit up and the media is runni...

Re: 15/16 Canucks at the Quarter Point

How the Canucks got fleeced by Kesler and the Ducks and how McCann failed all the way down to the Nucks... I have a strong feeling that McCann is a gift from the Hockey God.
He sure was in October anyway... since...

You guys are easily swayed I have to say.

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Sibisa - again 1 good game does not make up for a season of mistakes. If he progresses then we can talk again but for his contract $ and length what has he done to deserve it? Who cares? He's here to soak up some minutes and not cause young guys we actually care about in the next couple years to ge...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

We need to know if players like Grenier, Gaunce, Jenson or Shinkaruk have a future here. Do it Jim. Well lets not lump Shinkaruk in there yet. The other guys obviously suck, but you need organizational padding. I think coaching is the least of the teams worries unless you think that this is a good ...

Re: OOTS Nov 2015

I just think that whole concept is a complete fallacy in this day and age The Dorsets/Prusts are lightweight/ heavyweights, I'm thinking the Tom Wilson , Matt Martin, Chris Neil types... Fighting is maybe even secondary to face rubbing and scrums and just being a bully on the ice...And a protector....

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Pretty early to be calling Larsson a bust, dude. 23 years old, plays more than Tanev. Might not be 4th overall good, but it's not like he's fallen off a cliff like Hamilton. He's in the same ballpark as Jonas Brodin in Minny. Can make a pretty good case that the numbers say Larsson was significantl...

Re: GDT 27/11/2015 Canucks at Stars 5:30 Sportsnet Pac

We lose on special teams again.. PK sucked and PP not great..
PP tied for 8th in the league! The Twins really deserve a pat on the back.

24th rank PK on the other hand says more about how shitty this team actually is...

Re: OOTS Nov 2015

But at worse if that dork's presence cuts down on the vicious attacks on one of the games best players, I'd put him on the roster... I just think that whole concept is a complete fallacy in this day and age. There isn't any recourse for those thugs. They can't just slowly skate around the rink tryi...

Re: 15/16 Canucks at the Quarter Point

Lol at people wringing their hands at Horvats " slump ". He is 20 years old ffs playing second line hard minutes with about fifteen different fucking linemates. His ceiling is a hell of a lot higher than Malhotra or Brandon Sutter .Jesus Christ have a peak at these three players junior stats and se...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15

Wasn't JB after Myers at the first JB draft.
Surely the Jets will be looking to move those pieces to contenders? If anything we're pitching to the same market as the Jets rather than trying to acquire talent from them. The bummer is they have better chits to sell

Re: OOTS Nov 2015

The Penguins might be one of the few teams softer than the Canucks and after tonight you wonder if they finally go out and find a heavyweight or two to protect their skill players... Take care... Yup because that whole big stage-fighting dorks who play two shifts stopping the other team from playin...

Re: 15/16 Canucks at the Quarter Point

Only reason I put Horvat on the "disappointing" list is because he came on at the end of last year and had a great preseason. I expected too much maybe ? .. No I think it's fair to say that Horvat's offensive potential may have been slightly overblown based on watching his game. Brandon Sutter migh...

Why bring up a kid to watch the tire Fire ?
They know he's just depth? Or at least they see him as such...

At least Vrbata is starting to build some value...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15

Niedermayer wanted to play for the Canucks in 2005. Nonis chose Naslund over Niedermayer...
I'm almost certain he (Niedermayer) was asked about this years later and gave a politically correct answer but said he was never close to coming here.
