2nd Favorite Team

  1. https://www.nhl.com/penguins/news/pens-resign-bryan-rust-to-four-year-contract/c-299279942 http://www.sportingnews.com/nhl/news/penguins-bryan-rust-re-sign-contract-stats-nhl-news/1ufankr89y2gnzjj2f6853wcv The Penguins on Tuesday announced they have re-signed the veteran winger to a four-year deal worth $14 million. The #Pens have re-signed Bryan Rust to a four-year contract. The deal runs through the 2021.22 campaign, and it carries an average annual value of $3.5 million
  2. http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?post_id=60621#.U52ghZTrOIw.twitter Yet another interesting article from Meltzer. This quote is very telling..... "In my opinion, a team needs to be decisive and then stick to it in order to allow a fair chance for the player to settle in to his new position. Changing it up again after three games isn't a reasonable sample size to determine if the arrangement can work." Absolutely agree with this. This is one are I really hope is addressed next season. They really need to stop the constantly switching of players. Just my opinion. Take the article for what is worth.......
  3. Our top picks Hunter Shinkaruk & Bo Horvat will be starting on our roster beginning this year, for at least 9 games, which is pretty exciting for us. Shinkaruk has started with quite an impressive splash, netting 2 goals in the pre-season. BoHo, has also made some heads turn with some good defensive zone play, effective work in face-offs such as in the game vs 'Yotes & had 2 assists that game also. (Another plus of having Kassian & Weise on suspensions for me...lol). Here's to a successful season start for these 2 star rooks! http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/eye-on-hockey/23878133/nhl-rumors-rookies-horvat-shinkaruk-will-start-season-with-canucks
  4. Ugh, what a hot mess we were tonite vs the Islanders, in a game I thought we could have & should have played a whole lot better...the Isles after all, are not that tough a team to play against, imo. For the first 2 periods, especially, the Isles dominated us, hemming us in, in our own end, with dominant puck possession, making us look like we were wearing 2 left skates. They were hungrier for the puck, faster, & had better puck support & positioning to win puck battles. What. on. earth? Did we not learn our lesson when we had our butts handed to us on a platter Sunday vs the Blue Jackets? A team we should have & could have easily beaten? Instead they sent us away with our pride in our back pockets. Oh the humiliation of it all! And then tonite's game...yes, we were lucky enough to come out of this one 5-4 in O/T, but if you ask me, the Isles really deserved to win this one...they just flat out-played us tonite. Man, we gotta get our acts together here...upcoming is no easy feat: we play Jersey Thurs (which we really oughta win!), then a back-2-back with...(gulp!) St. Louis, the following nite, ending our 7-game road trip, after the Blues will have had a 6-day rest! Ah, this could get real ugly, real fast fellas! You can hear the disgust in Tort's voice in his comments: http://www.cbc.ca/sports-content/hockey/nhl/game/1345985/recap/
  5. Thought this was a good sum-up of these 2 teams facing each other tonight & what we might expect. I still think we're gonna lose tonite, far too soon to know if Kesler is on the uprise yet from his invisible presence on the ice up until the last game with the Flyers (1 goal being an empty-netter, give me a break!). And Miller has been a beast in net of late. I'm not exactly holding my breath here. The Sabres are also 4-1-0 in their last 5 games against us and this is gonna be in their territory tonite. An interesting note: Hodgson faces his old team & may have been some bad blood there when he left the Nucks. Kassian faces his old team...let's see what he brings tonite. http://www.nhl.com/gamecenter/en/preview?id=2013020096&cmpid=nhl-twt
  6. Hertl injured in 2nd period of last nite's game vs. Ottawa after a collision. His return was questionable. http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=686564&navid=nhl:topheads
  7. Tonight is a big night for the 'Nucks & Cory Schneider. It is the first time Schneids will be returning to Vancouver as a NJ Devil, to face his old team....and Luongo. Some are calling it a 'show-down' between the 2 goalies, who will come out on top? Some predict that if Schneids wins or shuts down Lu, the 'boo birds' might once again rain down upon Lu & could knock him off his mental game. Which may spell trouble for the 'Nucks for the near future. But if Lu wins for the team tonite, he may be considered a 'hero' to the fans. It seems already, he is a crowd favourite here. In a poll taken on the local sports radio station this morning, when asked 'Who do you love, Luongo or Schneider?', over 60% (last I heard) were in favour of Lu. I admittedly was a bit surprised by those results. So there you have it. The fans' fire has once again been rekindled & hearts are warm once again towards our #1 goalie. However, what will the response of the fans be if Lu loses tonite? That is the question. http://www.nhl.com/ice/blogpost.htm?id=21149
  8. On Monday, 'Nucks acquired Zac Dalpe (turning 24 yrs old) and Jeremy Welsh (25) from the Carolina Hurricanes. While Welsh has been since sent down to the Utica Comets, Dalpe may be finding himself on a 3rd line spot to fill Kassian's shoes, either as a centre or right wing, of which he can play both. He's played 41 NHL games, while Welsh has only played 6 for the 'Canes. Dalpe, who grew up in Ontario was actually a 'Nucks fan as a kid, with heroes like Pavel Bure, so it's pretty cool that he ended up in Van. Will be interesting to see where Zac will fit in & how he develops with the team. http://www.vancouversun.com/sports/Dalpe+stays+with+Canucks+Jeremy+Welsh+sent+down/8978733/story.html
  9. Surprisingly, & despite a strong finish in tonite's last pre-season game vs the Rangers, with 1 goal & 1 assist & a '+ 2' rating, rookie d-man Frankie Corrado has been sent down to the 'Nucks farm team in Utica, NY by Torts, along with centre man Zach Hamill. Torts will have another look at Corrado come Nov/Dec. Forward Brendan Gaunce has also been sent back to his OHL team in Belleville, ON. I was hoping Gaunce would stay on the roster, but he needs more time to develop per Torts. http://www.vancouversun.com/sports/hockey/vancouver-canucks/Canucks+Corrado+shipped+Comets+after/8965501/story.html
  10. I should have put this in the OT forum, this story interested me for non-hockey reasons http://aol.sportingnews.com/nhl/story/2013-04-26/brian-burke-sues-internet-commenters-maple-leafs-dave-nonis Brian Burke likes fighting—"pugnacity, testosterone, truculence and belligerence," etc. He's picked a worthy opponent. Burke, fired earlier this year as GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs, filed a defamation suit in British Columbia against 18 internet commenters who alleged that he was let go because of a relationship with a female sports reporter. Burke, obviously, denies the allegations. "The Defamatory Statements were made with the knowledge that they were false or with a reckless disregard for their truth,” the suit reads, according to metronews.ca. “The Defamatory Statements have been published, republished, downloaded, viewed and commented on by persons in British Columbia and Ontario and throughout Canada and the United States by various means, including through email, internet bulletin board postings, Facebook pages and Twitter messages, and have harmed the Plaintiff’s reputation in, amongst other jurisdictions, British Columbia, Ontario, and other parts of Canada and the United States.” The usernames listed in the claim are priceless: “NOFIXEDADDRESS”, “CAMBARKERFAN”, “LAVY16”, “MBSKIDMORE”, “TULOWD”, “LOOB”, “NAGGAH”, “MOWERMAN”, “AARONP18”, “STEVE”, “KABOOMIN8”,“THEZBRAD”, “SLOBBERFACE”, “POONERMAN”, “ISOLATEDCIRCUIT”, “KANADA KEV”, “NCOGNITO” AND “SIR PSYCHO SEXY”. None of the 18 are mentioned by name, though they probably should be. Especially "SIR PSYCHO SEXY." For what it's worth, Canadian libel law regarding public figures is stricter than American libel law; it's not necessary to prove malice, as is the case in the United States.
  11. (Sorry I'm a bit behind the ball on this one...been trying to play catch-up with Breaking Bad seasons!) All I can say is thank God I will not be seeing the twins in another uniform anytime soon!! In another forum, I saw this sweet post that summed up my thoughts... http://www.news1130.com/2013/08/21/sedins-plan-to-stay-in-vancouver-with-the-canucks/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

  13. Found an interesting article on Homer and drafting. Not sure if I agree 100% as anyone can make numbers lie, nonetheless it is and interesting article http://thehockeywrit...en-drafts-well/
  14. Ok. Saw this article on Philly.com. No one has posted a topic similiar to this , so here it goes. http://www.philly.co...rouxs-line.html ]The Flyers are at least kicking around the idea of moving recently signed center Vinny Lecavalier to RW on Claude Giroux's first line. That was one of the many interesting aspects of a conference call Saturday with Lecavalier and reporters. From here, if the Flyers placed the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Lecavalier on Giroux's unit they would be putting all their eggs in one basket. It makes more sense to have two strong units, with Giroux centering Scott Hartnell and Jake Voracek, and Lecavalier centering Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds. The third line might have Sean Couturier centering Max Talbot and Matt Read. The Flyers should want BOTH Giroux and Lecavalier to take draws. Both are excellent in the faceoff circle. Giroux won 54.5 percent last year, while Lecavalier won 54.4 percent. The Flyers were 23d in the 30-team NHL last season, winning 48.5 percent of their draws. Faceoff wins should be more common in 2013-14. The Flyers recently re-signed Adam Hall, who won 59 percent of his draws in 11 games with the Flyers last season.

  15. http://thehockeywrit...Hockey Writers) It’s a known fact the Nashville Predators have been the cream of the crop when it comes to drafting defenseman. They’ve drafted the likes of Weber, Suter, Josi, Ellis, Klein, etc. and their uncanny ability to develop future defensive studs is unmatched in the NHL. Their system is consistently jam-packed with high-level blueliners. This offseason, having that many players on the backend can prove to be a luxury in the current “buyer’s market”. The Philadelphia Flyers have been in the hockey news much of the past week or so with the acquisition of Mark Streit, the amnestying of Danny Briere, the fiasco that is Ilya Bryzgalov, and the possibility of acquiring players like Jonathan Bernier, Keith Yandle, and Bobby Ryan. Paul Holmgren (I think) has finally realized that the problems on defense have to be fixed. There aren’t many key defenseman available in free agency, so the trade route is likely going to be the option for the Flyers. In terms of trades, the Flyers and Predators have always seemed to be great trading partners. Countless deals have been made between the two teams and, for all intents and purposes, they seem to be on good terms. The whole “signing Shea Weber to an offer sheet” may have thrown a small wrench into the gearbox for a hot minute, but Nashville has what the Flyers want: DEFENSE! One player who may be on the way out is Jonathon Blum. As THW’s Brian Roe mentioned in his article on the acquisition of T.J. Brennan by the Predators: “Personally, I think this deal is just another sign that the Predators are going to trade a young defenseman like Blum or Ellis. Ellis will probably get another chance to prove himself at the NHL level. Blum is a different story. His contract is up and it may be time for both sides to move on. The former first round pick still retains a high ceiling, but his value to the Predators dwindles a little more each year after spending significant time in coach Barry Trotz’s doghouse. It’s easy to think Nashville may be shopping Blum and hoping to get back a draft choice or a young forward with a similar development path as Blum. Teams are always looking for young, puck-moving defensemen so Nashville should find a market for Blum’s services this off-season, if they decide to deal him.” Blum is a player I’ve liked since his draft year in 2007. He was the player I thought the Flyers would select with their second 1st round selection until they traded it for the rights to Scott Hartnell and Kimmo Timonen who have become key players for the Flyers the past six seasons. Blum has bided his time being shuffled between the NHL and AHL and it’s finally time he makes an impact with a team that can use him full-time. It isn’t necessary for Holmgren to go all out to bring in a player like Keith Yandle. Sure it would be nice, but a young, cheap defenseman like Blum – keyword being cheap - could do a lot for a team who is missing an all-around defenseman. With Holmgren’s cap woes at a premium, the Golden State native could provide much needed help at a fraction of the cost. To acquire Blum, Holmgren may seriously consider trading Andrej Meszaros for a 3rd rounder. Although he’s had a nagging injury the past year, it isn’t inconceivable to think Meszaros can fetch that high a draft pick, especially when healthy. It would free up an extra $4 million in cap space and give the Flyers a pick that could be traded for a Blum – a reasonable asking price for a quality defenseman who still has a lot to prove in the NHL. It’s time for the Flyers to stop looking for the “shiny new toy” (ie. Yandle) that will cost a pretty penny and look for less costly ways to better their team. Jonathon Blum is definitely a start ] Thoughts ??? Might have some potential here?
  16. By Dave Molinari and Shelly Anderson / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette BOSTON -- The Penguins' rivalry with Philadelphia might be going to a new level. Or at least to a different setting. The Penguins and Flyers have had informal talks about playing an outdoor game at Beaver Stadium on the Penn State campus. "It would be great for Pennsylvania hockey," Penguins CEO David Morehouse said Friday. The talks have been between Morehouse and Flyers president Peter Luukko, who confirmed them to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Luukko told the Inquirer that Penn State is "very interested" in being the site of such a game. Because the Penguins are committed to play an outdoor game against Chicago at Soldier Field next winter, they likely would not be able to play the Flyers at Penn State until at least the 2014-15 season. A Penguins-Flyers game most likely would not be a Winter Classic, which is a specific annual event on the NHL calendar, but would be one of the "satellite" outdoor games that will begin taking place in 2013-14 in places such as New York's Yankees Stadium and Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The official website of Penn State athletics lists Beaver Stadium's capacity as 106,572, although numerous football games there have drawn crowds of several thousand more.

  17. Alain Vigneault has been let go by the Vancouver Canucks, a mercy killing really. He didn't miss a easy shot and give up cheap goals like certain goalies who shall remain nameless. He didn't play disinterested defense like certain blue liners who shall remain nameless. He didn't give up and go through the motions like certain forwards who shall go nameless. Vigneault stayed longer than most coaches, and was there past the time frame when the club was listening to him. Talented club, he got them to a finals but they have been a first round knockout two years in a row, going 1-8 in the playoffs. He lost his team, they gave up on him and quit listening. He is a good coach who will land on his feet, the one who I feel for is whoever comes in next to this club. No more skating by and winning a soft division and convincing people that they are better than they are, starting next year they will play the likes of the Kings, Sharks, Ducks and the improved Wild. This club needs blown up.
  18. Whilst I don't have an awful lot of time for Bryz as a goalie and team mate some of the stuff he said in the end of season Q&A with the media was spot on. A selection of his quotes... t’s not like fair or unfair. We already had the conversation. It’s just ridiculous. Just ridiculous. Sometimes you’re reading and it’s like, ‘Oh my God, who is this lunatic?’ What are they writing about. It was nothing close to the truth or close to related to hockey. You read this and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, I’ve got to deal with these people every day.’ I’ve said it before, guys. Before you’re writing something you’ve got to read what you’re writing. I’m two years here. I never saw it like good article with everything, like, ‘Flyers lose the game because this, this, this, this, this. They need to improve their game like this, this, this or this.’ I never. That’s what called professionalism. It’s like, ‘OK, this reporter knows hockey. He knows what he talking about.’ Can't really argue with any of that, especially when he has to deal with grade A idiots like Carchidi and Seravalli, never mind Tim Panaccio You never look yourselves in the mirror, eh? You’re always good. You never make the mistakes. Your articles are always perfect. In reality, what have you done for this city? If you ask yourself, what have you done besides only criticize? Not much. Can't really argue with any of that either! Like I say in general I ain't a Bryz lover but on this topic he has my heartfelt sympathy.

  20. http://www.philly.co...draft_pick.html Take it for what it is worth here is Homer's answer on the draft....... General manager Paul Holmgren says the Flyers will choose the best player available, regardless of position. Pressed on the issue, Holmgren conceded that if a forward and defenseman were equal, he'd probably pick the latter.
