What I meant was, he needs to improve as much defensively as he does offensively. Obviously he'll be more of an impact player offensively overall, but if he doesn't prove that he can play defensively as well, he won't get much ice time with Torts. I think a lot of people blame AV for his lack of ice time but I believe any balanced coach wouldn't play anyone who is not defensively responsible these days.. unless they're a Russian 40 goal scorer

Why can't people expect much from Kassian?

This is professional hockey, not recreational. The fans are paying fans and they expect good hockey and hard work; it's an entertainment business and the fans are paying a premium for it.


I know it's one thing to be a loyal Canuck fan but maybe being too much of an apologist is a bad thing for a team.


Maybe what you're trying to say is not so much "people shouldn't expect much from Kassian" but moreso "give him some leash". But it's pro hockey, there's definitely expectations there, and high-ones. People are hoping we didn't get just another plug with this guy.

For all we know, Kassian could give the Sedins what Burrows couldn't. A guy that grinds the boards with dmen and takes valuable time up, setting up a half "court" offense using his power forward skills.

Or.....the first line could be one and done in the offensive zone. Too premature to say. One thing is for certain. Kassian (any Canucks for that matter) will only have a leash. if they put in 100 evbery shift.

I'm looking forward to the season. Definately not the strongest Canucks team on papers, but we have some young guys to look forward to, and hope they develop into Canucks that sign extensions.

Guess I've been living under a rock, just heard that Pratt is going to do the morning show with Bro Jake on Team 1040.. Pink-slips rock jock radio - and cat named Pratt back with Team

We all know about Pratt's affinity for Crown Royal and I've heard that Bro Jake doesn't enjoy cocaine, he just really likes how it smells.. How long before its named the "Crown and Coke Show"

yea today was the first time i had heard that its going to be Bro jake and Pratt...wtf...

have a feeling that it was probably done as like a joint pitch once Pratt had gotten together with jake at 101 because i cant see Pratt begging for his job back, and the morning show is the prime real estate other than the afternoon show for sure. Rintoul got fucked pretty good lol morning show to hosting 9-midnight? lol bye bye

They had to fire more than a few personalities just to sign Pratt & Bro Jake.

9 to midnight for Rintoul eh.. Kind of sucks for an expecting parent. I figured they'd give him a mid-afternoon show or something since he's likely the long running employee of the month for being such a keener lol

You don't say?

The morning show had become just dribble and whining, got to
The point listening to mcletch, Botchford, etc that I couldn't listen anymore wasn't a surprise when everyone got canned

It would be nice to have another sports radio station in Vancouver outside of Bell Media. New personalities, less of the old recycled garbage.

Sometimes, these guys are so out there, you think they are just picking a side of an argument or choosing a topic of discussion to get people riled up. That's understandable because they need ratings, but it would be a breath of fresh air to listen to someone intelligent talk sports.

So I guess that's it for Dan Russell? After what, 30 years or something ridiculous like that?

His show was part of why I got into hockey in the 90's. Didn't give a shit about the Canucks, but I enjoyed the show every night before going to sleep.

So they hired Bro Jake to attract the non hockey audience? This is supposed to be a sports radio show and not the BS he speaks about that is not sports related. 1040 is really pissing me off and Pratt is a jerk.

Guaranteed the morning show now is going to be less direct sports stuff and more off-topic/ spinoff stuff with those two

It's been said that nothing good is written in the fine print. In this case, the fine print reminds the players that they play in Buffalo

Fans of the Red Green Show will like the duct tape sleeves.

Wow...With the exception of their early 90's jerseys (and before them), the Sabres absolutely suck at designing jerseys.

I find having separated text outside of the logo is stupid.
Including Vancouver's. Was never a fan of the "VANCOUVER" printed above the logo.
Also the diagonal slashed across text (off the top of my head, Penguins, NYR, Colorado) was dumb too.

The logo does the explaining.
We don't need a logo that says "Hi, we are the [city name] [team name]"
This isn't silly baseball.
