Sven Baertschi's agent Andre Rufener on Baertschi concussion : "A cheap shot by Hyka who had no consequences for the hit. Sven is recoivering very slow so far, it's going to take a while." #Canucks
Around the 37 sec. mark. The crap on Baertschi. I had partially forgotten just how shitty this really was...

That's certainly shoulder to head and defenseless position, but it does seem like the Knight coasts through the hit. I don't think there was intent to injure, but I suppose a head shot is (supposed to be) a head shot. Don't expect consistency from the NHL player safety guys any time soon. I hope Sven recovers quickly.

Bubbles would convert the guy who has taken more faceoffs than anyone in the league and is north of 50% in the dot to wing...lol
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I said he could be moved to the wing. Not sure if you have a point. You rarely do these days, but I guess you have a few health issues at your age. :lol:

Utica folk are all raving about Olli’s game. Can’t keep him down there forever.

He’s -8. And no Utica fans aren’t raving about his defensive game at all.

Some people have no patience for a rebuild. IGC

Just read he was the most skilled player on the ice last night by far. Blub, you always tell me that the plus/minus stat is a “dumbass stat, that means nothing”

In context Pacific Blue. Why was his and only his +/- way the fuck out of whack? Like for a bit there the next guy was -3. What gives? That’s a lot of bad luck in ten games. Why not let him cook down there for a while?

Olaf is going to be a player, Tri-Cities, however I agree lets introduce the Olli-Hughes show next year. 3 consecutive years of serious injections of new hockey life starting with Boeser, the Petty, then Olli-Hughes next year. So ridiculous, so “GENIUS”

I’ll be fine if Olaf can turn into a second pairing 20 minute a night guy. Not the right pick but useful nonetheless

Blob don’t go all HF Pro Tank thread on us. We need to be scouting players ranked in that 15-25 zone where we will be picking. The days of Dach, Cozens and Byram are over for us.

I’ll stick with my prediction. Somewhere in the 80’s pointswise and a top 10 pick. Playoffs in two more years. Unlike some folks I don’t pick the goalposts up and move them all over the place
