Div 2 at 8 rinks for the past 4 years? And varrying levels of minor hockey before getting into the ASHL full time

I play against goofs like lucic's brother

The +\- argument is subjective as many people debate it's worth as a stat, I base worth on what I see on the ice

As well, if manny is only a - player because he's the one taking defensive zone face offs, why are none of the players who also kill penalties even close to his +\-?

If this love affair with manny is based on anything but emotion, who is a worse player in our active roster than manny?

^ also, in such a heavily defensive role, for him to break even basically means NO OPPOSING PLAYER is scoring while he's on the ice. ie, it's impossible. Manny has 5 goals on the season now I believe so to me, he's doing everything we want from him.

This is getting drab, anyways I am stoked for the next Boston game, I hope Bitz crushes Marchant's face!... also to make a strong power move at attention-whore Thomas and see if he can push him off like he did to Sedin last year!

6'5" - 215lbs is not the same as 6'"1 - 187lbs

I have literally no loyalty to Malholtra, and I do think there are better 4th line centres in the league............ but he's not even really our 4th line centre... Lappierre is... he just comes out, takes faceoffs, dumps it in and changes. That's it.

You do not get a minus when you are scored against in shorthanded situations.

I look at that stat for Malholtra like this ----> his line has only been scored on at even strength in faceoffs that occurred within the Canucks zone ~15 times on the whole season. That's pretty decent.

I'm not emotionally tied to him, but he's far from horrible... and even if he is the "worst player on the Canucks" someone has to be that person on the roster and even then he's still better than a lot of players on a lot of other teams and that's what counts.

Are you talking about just the plastic knob or those rubber tacki mac's that include the grip?
Any hockey store would carry them though.
Including Sportchek or maybe even Canadian Tire.

The plus minus i attribute to starting in your own zone ~90% of the time, not saying starting in your own zone means that you can't score. But in most cases once manny gets out of the zone, he gets on the bench.

Now as for MG wanting to get rid of him, maybe thats your hockey senses tingling, but it sure sounds like armchair gm to me. Besides, even if manny leaves, there are many reason that could happen. Maybe he's demanding the same money, I certainly do not think he's worht the 2.5mil he's earnign right now. Or he thinks he'll have more opportunity elsewhere.

Any notion that you think you know whats going on with management is pure speculation, unless you're going to tell me you've managed a national hockey league team before. =)
Agree. Although he's not the same player as last year before his injury, I don't think he's a detriment to the team.

Just be thankful he's not like Scotty Gomez.

I've been pleasantly surprised by how Bitz has been holding his own playing with the Sedins. He's a better skater than I thought and looks like he's recovered from serious injuries he had in prior years. Tough guy or not, it's good to have his physical presence out there that can contribute and not be a liability to the team.

Marchand will get his one way or another. Players in the league have long memories and the way he plays certainly doesn't make him friends.

there aren't anymore games against boston this season. the Jan 7th game was the one and only meeting between the two. only way to play them again would be another cup final.

Great video reel put together for the presentation of Mats Sundin, got chills watching it for sure. Glad to see the guy getting honored, he deserves it.

i was a bit surprised at the 7pm start since the game is in calgary tonight but i suppose that was by design to accommodate the leafs/habs game for HNIC.

Pretty certain all late games start at 7pm pst on HNIC, regardless of who is playing where.
