GDT: Canucks vs. Flames 7pm CBC, SN, NHLN Jan 16

Post by Madcombinepilot »

“With great hatred, comes great responsibility”

These are the words that shall be shared today in our locker room. We know the hate. We know the traitors who signed contracts there, we know their rats, their icons and their weakness.


Let them know our hatred.


Tonight marks the first of 10 games between Vancouver and Calgary this season: Jan. 16 (road), Jan. 18 (road), Feb. 11 (home), Feb. 13 (home), Feb. 15 (home), Feb. 17 (road), Mar. 31 (home), Apr. 8 (road), Apr. 10 (road), May 8 (road).
Vancouver has a 110-132-33-6 all-time record in 281 contest vs the Flames. The Canucks have gone 47-76-15-1 on the road in Calgary.
Travis Hamonic faces his former team for the first time since joining the Canucks. The 30-year-old defenceman played 193 regular season games for Calgary, recording 42 points (11-31-43) and 139 penalty minutes.
Brock Boeser will play in his 200th career NHL game tonight. The 23-year-old winger has 163 points (77-86-163) in his first 199 career games.

Game day prayer:
“And the skaters we shall be,
For the my lord, for thee.
Power hath descended for from thy sticks,
That our skates may carry forth thy commands.
And we shall flow forth a river of goals to thee,
And teeming with wins shall it ever be.
In nomine Patris, et Filii, Spiritus Sancti.”

NHL-PR: / Quinn Hughes needs one point for 60 in his NHL career (8-51—59 in 75 GP). He can become the first defenseman in more than 27 years to reach the benchmark in fewer than 80 GP..

Go Quinn! Go everyone ffs.

It’d be great to have dates on these threads, like we used to, because just as you pointed out, they will play eachother a shitload of times, so if someone posts in an old thread it will get messy to figure out which GDT is which.

Just a suggestion. :drink:

Btw, have they announced which goalie gets the start tonight? Holtby or the Demigod?

Looking like Holtby, but I'd really like to see a Demigod / Markstrom battle. :)

@FarhanLaljiTSN - · 1h
Holtby off first. Looks like he’ll start for #Canucks

Here's hoping Virtanen plays along with the pump-n-dump and pots a few.

Get to know Travis Hamonic in his pre-game presser-- https://twitter.com/Canucks/status/1350538709452480512..9 min.

Very honest interview. I think he'll get better every game. Really only had one crappy year, (last one), no reason not to think he'll return to form.

Any of the prospect defensemen would do the same presser in 4 1/2 minutes.
