77 and 18 benched?
18 just had a good shift.

This is the type of game, LV is the type of team where 77 is completely useless.
Try to focus on THIS year...

77 giving up the puck at the blueline is incredibly useful to Vegas.

If Green benches anyone then he is a complete knob.

The whole team sucks, the whole team should be benched.

#Canucks prospect Jett Woo with 3 assists tonight for @MJWARRIORS
He now has 60 PTS (12-48-60) in 58 WHL games this season - currently on a four-game point streak
7:24 PM - 9 Mar 2019

Is this the right place to put this?

Post game with Green and Boeser;
https://www.nhl.com/canucks/video/postg ... c-66727803

Tired of hearing Green just say; "Well, they are a very good team and.........
Boeser just echos that.

Also tired of the Canucks seemingly not being prepared for 1st periods.
We could have the best players in the world but if the motivation to come out strong isn't there, well..Image


I've gone over all the Knights goals twice and I can only see one that one could say was just pure skill.????

The team is done. Too many passengers and not enough skill. It makes me even more concerned that they didn't give Dahlen a look. Our D is putrid. It needs a complete overhaul. Hughes alone will not help us overcome our warts in the backend. Trust me, warts in the backend are hard to get rid of.

Ericksson is done. Whatever Benning needs to do he needs to do it to get rid of this guy. Pouliot has to go. Let him have a fresh start somewhere else. Hold the line on Edler. Games like tonight are too common place for him. When he is good I love him but I have seen too many games like this from him to want to lock him up more than two years.

Goldobin does not engage. He is so afraid of physical contact he bails much too often.

Play the hell out of Virtanen, Gaudette, Hughes, Goldobin, Boeser, Horvat and Pettersson. Give Demko half the remaining games, at least. Call up Dahlen.....oh wait....

I hope more light is shed on the Dahlen trade. IMO, he could have got one more serious look.
Could tell Per didn't understand it.
LOL. Maybe they see him as a clone of Goldobin. Bout the only thing I can think of.
I could accept that, no prob. Just doesn't seem we really got much in the exchange.

To be fair, the same was being said about Jordan Subban - most fans were pissed the team never gave him a shot and instead traded him to LA.

LA gives up on him and last year he signs with Toronto and is playing with the Marlies.

6 full seasons since he was drafted and he hasn't played a single NHL game yet.

I don't know how's he's doing in Toronto's farm system, but all I could find was a decline in points but a better +/-. No idea on how much he's playing and how far down the depth chart he is out there. He's played in just over half of the Marlies games, don't know if it's injuries or he's being healthy scratched on a regular basis.

Agreed

You have to finish with the future. What’s the point in giving big minutes to players who won’t be here long term. The seasons over. Disagree on Dahlen, one thing Benning is good at is recognizing which prospects fit the plan and which ones don’t - Subban, McCann, Corrado, Shinkaruk etc.

Bye bye, somehow

True. If winning were the plan, Tkachuck would have been picked over Juolevi.

Nice hatty by that loser tonight. :roll:
