Re: GDT: Canucks @ Isles - 4pm - SNP - NHLN-US

I'm still pissed about the Leaves game. Not just the Leaves game but the repeated, terrible calls by the NHL. I wonder if the data are available in terms of referrals to player safety and outcomes. That would make for some interesting analysis. I despair at this league that makes being a fan harder ...

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Sens - 4:30 - TSN5

Because that's what we need. A 4 minute PPlay for the Sens which takes away our offensive chances for about 20% of the remaining time.

Stupid Dorsett.

Re: Ok Lurkers... step into the light...

I consider myself a lurker. Been here since Jan 2006, only 500 posts and I contribute a lot less now than I used to. Much prefer forming my opinions of player performance based on what you lot see than the BS from the Vancouver media. Plus HW always has juicy gossip that nobody else seems to.

Best way to get single game tickets?

I'll be back in Van in December and want to watch a game. I haven't been to a Canucks game since I was in university which was in the 90s, so I don't mind spending some $$ and at the same time I want to get a decent bang for my buck. There we be two of us (me and Bingo Jr.). None of my friends back ...

Re: Willy D death watch...

I will give Willie and Gulutzan this one pearl of wisdom, study lines of other teams, try to get line matches ready and notice weaknesses to exploit it. Notice what the other team is doing and counter it quickly. Don't be afraid to play the youth a couple times in critical situations. Lidster I don...
