Re: Canucks News and Notes

So.....how about that Richardson?


Also Kassian really starting to play with some confidence. Needs a goalscorer on his line though.

Re: I Cannot Believe it is a Suspension Thread

The problem is that Edler really did decide to completely ignore the puck in this case. Now I'm not saying I particularly agree with the suspension, especially given the Stuart jumping up to elbow Nash suspension being the same, but Edler did have another play on that. It shouldn't have been more th...

Re: OOTS: 2013-14

I don't know...shoulda, woulda, coulda is pretty much like RDs 20/20 hindsight. We can say there would be takers but at what value? Consider that AV was not going to use him in any tangible capacity. They were feeding him protected minutes and he was getting eaten alive in possession. Whether they t...

Re: OOTS: 2013-14

Cody starting off the same way he ended. 3 points in 4 games which isn't terrible by any stretch especially considering the team has scored 4 goals in 4 games. But, if my count is correct, on the ice for 6 out 8 ES goals against and -4....that's not so good. An atrocious 42.4% on faceoffs.

Re: GDT - Luongo vs. Schneider - TSN 7pm

Luckily Booth keeps his point or we'd be hearing from some about how he only has 1 point through 4 games....

Seriously, Booth made the play along the boards with a pressure assist by Santorelli that allowed that chance to be created.

No kidding. And don't forget Tanev and Lack don't count as prospects because they weren't drafted. You can put Erikson in that camp as well if he proves to be a good goaltender.

Re: GDT - Luongo vs. Schneider - TSN 7pm

Pretty clear who is coming out of the lineup when Burrows and Kassian are back. When they do get back, along with Schroeder, Torts may actually rotate the lines. the guys on the third line are playing well so I see very little reason why Torts wouldn't be playing the 4th line when (if?) the lineup i...

Re: Vancouver Canucks hire coach John Tortorella

Torts teams don't actually block an inordinate amount of shots from anything I've seen. i think he uses it more as a motivational and commitment type thing. He wants to push guys to give it their all and then a little more. Being willing to throw yourself into a shot is one of those things. Playing ...

Re: OOTS: 2013-14

Thomas got yanked after giving up 2 goals on 5 shots tonight. This after getting yanked in St Lou the other night (5 goals on 28 shots). UK is looking like a rocket surgeon... in the very early going of course. In fairness to Thomas he was hurt last night. It wasn't a "you suck" yank but rather a "...

Re: Oct 6/13 CNUX @ Lames 5pm Splortsnet and 1040

I don't think Hamhuis is in the doghouse. i think he's hurt and it is likely a groin injury. This goes back to cap when he missed practices and games. If you look at his mistakes, while they look horrendous they all seem to have one thing in common...being a split second too slow. He's a guy who loo...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Holmgren. What a GM. If one lacked that confidence in a coach to fire them 3 games into the season (the team btw is not good), perhaps the smarter move would be to fire the coach in the summer, hire a new coach and give that coach time during camp to implement a system. But no. Not only doesn't he g...

Re: Oct 6/13 CNUX @ Lames 5pm Splortsnet and 1040

Yep. Pretty much sums up the Flames for this year. All it will take is about a 20 minute effort for any good teams to beat them.
