  1. Didn’t see one of these like we used to have... was all excited that on the day the Canucks lost In regulation for the first time in awhile, that all of the PAC 5 lose outside of Az, ideal as I could ask outside of my team winning so no real damage.... essentially same thing for the flames - best case scenario night after losing one. edit.. remember we used make picks and keep score? I guess it’s too dead here to do that again?
  2. Maybe the Canucks knocked the rust off of the Blues and made em angry. Maybe the Canucks burnt out their arms by letting them take 80 shots. Maybe both. Endure the angry push for the first half the game... then hope they get tired. Cgy can't get caught looking ahead to tomorrow's game like I am. Tomorrow could very well be a dud... but I've set the PVR! Kyrou really stood out for me last night... Pbp had his name rolling off his tongue a lot. Noticeable.. Hard working. Bright side: If you guys lose tonight.. I'll be cheering for you guys tomorrow. If you guys win... Well then... "Good for you!"(Christian Bale voice)

  4. https://www.tsn.ca/connor-mcdavid-nathan-mackinnon-headline-tsn-hockey-s-mid-season-top-50-players-1.1431259: Flames related: "Two players inside the Top 20 of this pre-season’s Top 50 - Burns (No. 13) and Johnny Gaudreau (No. 16) - didn’t appear on a single ballot for the mid-season Top 50." "Five of seven Canadian clubs are represented in the mid-season Top 50. Ottawa and Calgary don’t have any players on the list. The Flames had four on the pre-season list: Gaudreau, Mark Giordano, Matthew Tkachuk and Sean Monahan." Canuck related: Pettersson at 20 - fair... Miller at 41- ok.... Boeser at 48 - does not belong in a top 100 - should have been Hughes there instead.

  5. I am. Can't speak anyone else in the fanbase. I'll make the reminder now.. I don't rep the Canuck fanbase. I happen to be a Canuck fan. People will inevitably brush my opinion as "Canuck fans think.." - They'll be technically incorrect. But, Yes. I'm excited about a potential playoff berth. I also understand your trepidation. Its all relative isn't it. Last yr was the yr of career yrs and the best Flames season in 30, to.. this. I think the nucks have a team better built for playoff hockey than regular season. The beauty of the Pac 5... every team is flawed in some manner. (barring WC crossovers) 2 of these 5 flawed teams HAVE to make it to the second round... one of them HAS to make the 3rd round. Every fanbase has portion that loves to point to every reason it won't be their team. I'm excited it could be mine.
  6. This season is much different than last... Every team in the Pacific has a realistic path to the 3rd round this year... All 5 of these teams are on the same tier (slight edge to VGK). Depending on how the free falling Jets respond and what Nashville is able to muster, we should/could be looking at all 5 Pac teams making it... Once in the playoffs... every potential Pac series will be a toss up right now. we have 30 games for some dust to settle... That's A LOT of hockey. We don't know where the turns lie for each team.... Injuries being the key one... every team will suffer for em... who gets hit hardest? Whose been hit hardest already and therefore likely to run just from getting bodies back? Cgy, VGK changed coaches - what will be the longer term effects of that? Goaltending trends. Special Teams trends. Scoring trends. Goal differential trends. TDL coming up as well... This has been the most entertaining race I can remember watching unfold.
  7. They gotta lose the first one before they lose the seventh. PP has been struggling.. PK was having a tough time... D giving up a lot of chances up until the last few games.. but still winning. Would be nice to see our special teams return to early season effectiveness. Sutter returns to help the PK... We'll see if the difference he's shown continues. If those things improve, we might be able to go on a real run along side which ever other team in the PAC is making their run... Flames perhaps? They got a run in them?
  8. Now now Peeps.... I didn't come back for you guys to gush all over my team and tell me how great it is. I came back so I could do that. Albeit in a more subtle and jabbing manner to annoy everyone. But yeah... Interesting times indeed with how balanced the division is.. unprecedented. Every team is thinking the same thing... If we can just go on a bit of a run here.. we'll be ok.. No. Unlikely, cuz with 5 teams... Chances are at least one other is matching said run. So it should be a great month of musical chairs ... Hopefully ending with Canucks sitting in the final chair when the music stops.
  9. Don't get a lot of fans, period. But it's part of the charm.
  10. Worked out nicely that way eh... Lost access with switch in late 2016ish... Tried to get it back in early 2017, couldn't.. then had my third kid in May '17... And life's been a gong show since... Just stayed on HF.. Randomly took a shot in dark with a PM to a mod when I picked up an old iPad with this forum in its favorites... and Voila! Here I be. I do like how one of my last posts was along the lines of the Sedin-Sedin-Eriksson line should be a top tier line. That alone would of justified 3 yrs of shame. ... Is Derf still around?

    Just seeing this for the first time... Seen a handful of threads across different forums over the years with news of a forum member that had passed . This is the first time I felt compelled to post.... FF52 and I used go at each other pretty hard yrs ago here .. most of the time I think it was hockey related... He wasn't one to hesitate in challenging my opinion... I think we respected each other... -im gonna go thru my post history... Bet I will find him challenging every post... Sad news.. the forum must have took a massive hit with his loss.
  12. Knocking some rust off..got my account back... Apologies in advance.

    Yes please! Quick.. do it before our Cali trip.
  14. Hope so. And hopefully you caught some of the game on Sportsnet tonight... Hutton displayed exactly what he can bring. To cross.. just preseason vs the meagre Oilers... But Edler with an outstanding puck moving display tonight.
  15. Im thinking you may be a little spoiled from watching Brodie Giordano. Edler-Tanev's puck moving ability is just fine. Describing them as not being to move the puck well is inaccurate. I thinking you must judging via point totals.
