Kinda funny how women's and men's tennis is still being dominated by players who've been peaking for 13-18 years...

What's in those multi-coloured drinks anyway?!
Judging by the people who drink them, they must be some sort of weight-loss beverage.
a side effect is a lot of grunting and yelling, I wonder if that happens at other times of the day for them.

True story. Back on CCentral I believed your name implied you just really liked weed.

Turns out you just love saltwater fish.

Life is crazy.

Glad to see the prospects get points, and Demko making big saves.

Cole Cassels! He was supposed to be our McDavid-bane. Is he starting to look like hes turning that corner yet? I haven't heard anything about him in ages...

From what I've read, Cassels has stepped up , first in the reg season when the comets were decimated by injuries and call-ups, and now in the playoffs.

He still has a lot of work to do, but what was it tuna said about late-round picks shouldn't be expected until age 23? He's just turned 23, and may yet establish himself.

The big story has been Goldy, 6 assists in 4 games, and Boucher with 3 goals in 2 games. I don't know why, but I like Boucher and wish he'd get an offensive opportunity.

I don't know if there's room for Boucher, Goldy and Leipsic, but I prefer 4th liners who can score to plugs like Gaunce.

Demko & Goldobin are looking better all the time.

So does that Goldobin trade.

Boucher has great hands. Just not enough oomph or speed in his game. Doesn’t seem to want it enough but he definitely has the skill. He’s 25 now so I think he’s destined to be an AHL superstar

Boucher has a deadly shot, ... given sufficient time & space.

Goldy gettin' those playoff points as a LW, just when you think he's a shooter only he gets 6 assists in 4 post season games vs a strong team at that.

Therein lies the problem, this doesn't exist in the NHL like it does in the AHL!

Actually, Goldobin has been centring the top line. He’s also been killing penalties. Cull giving the young Rusky all kinds of responsibilities.

Canucks management has to make room for Goldobin next season.

I liked a lot of things from him at the end of the season. Due to injuries he got regular top six minutes and his confidence began to shine through. If he makes the team, both he and Jake, need to be given a long leash.
The only HW the Canucks need

Goldobin has been playing better without the puck - where the majority of the game is played.

The stuff that typically doesn't make the highlight clips, but results in offensive opportunities & more ice time.
