It pisses me off. He has been one of the things worth watching.

Expectations are very different now though.

Remember Boeser lighting it up - Hobey Baker Finalist - and then his first season, team lost but Boeser scored - all good.

Petey setting records in the SHL, Canucks lost, who cares

Even Gaudette setting the NCAA on fire kept us positive for the future. Now that future is here except Podkolzin, after that, Woo? and not much more? I mean Lind but I don’t think anyone is “excited” about that.

I am hoping someone from Edmonton pounds Roussel for the crap he pulled last night.

Typical, Juolevi has been playing very well, but let's take him out of the lineup.
How about taking out Roussel and dress 6 defensemen and the rover.

- Reubenkincade

I don't even know if it's worth being pissed off, right now.

Really?



Pearson is a top 6 guy. And if the bottom 6 is contributing 25%, the D 13.5%... that means the top 6 is contributing 61.5%? Not sure how that breaks down league wide, but I'm pretty sure having Sutter and Motte (injured) score 11 goals and the rest of the bottom six scoring 6 goals between the 6/7 players is pretty bad.

😁
I like both Pearson and Hoglander.
In regards to the bottom 6, I did say not all of them were contributing.
I have always liked Beagle, but he looks done and has been struggling at winning draws.Roussel is garbage and slow, Gaudette shows some flashes but struggles in several areas etc.

Interesting

Calgary have given away 5 first and second round picks since 2014 ( 2 firsts 3 seconds)

Benning has given away 4 first and second round picks (one first three seconds)

I think you can add Rathbone into future players. Costmar and Persson are guys to keep an eye on.

It is pretty much the same as every NHL team.

He also said that 7 years ago

I think it's more about all the bottom 6 guys that are dragging the team down rather than the top guys. The top guys aren't playing their best right now, given, but the bottom 6 and depth guys just aren't doing anything.

The Canucks are super fragile – just how confidence works. They were super confident last year. This year they've lost their mojo.

Man I miss Motte.

Who else do you hold accountable when the team is a mess?

The players? GM brought most of them in.

The coach? GM brought him in too.

I still think Benning won't get canned this offseason but I certainly wouldn't rule it out. I doubt Green survives though.

That’s what I meant, the “special players”, or the reward for sucking, are here already and now it’s business as usual

I think looking a much bigger man in the eyes and smashing him in the nose is the exact opposite of Matt Coooke hockey

I was hoping he'd get at least 5 games. The Department of Player Safety is a joke.

That wasn't tough hockey that was punk hickey, big difference.


I am sure Kassian has his number, when he returns he will pay and Canucks tough hockey guy will pull a turtlechuk.
