Pedan should be playing over garbage guys like Weber and bartkowski! Start using him more like biega! Hopefully biega re signs and those other two duds don't! Pedan will and should be a sold 5th or 6th guy! Will atleast help sbisa with fighting on the back end!

I'm suprised Luca Sbisa has a 9-4-2 records in NHL fights according to hockeyfights.com.

I'd like to see Pedan in more. He's big and he has the tools we need. He's a bit rough around the edges but that's what coaching and experience are for.

Yet somehow finds himself on the PP on occasion (his passing and shot accuracy aren't any better)

Yah good job, Virtanen will want to stick around here long term when the Vancouver media posts and writes articles like that... Even if it was partially his fault who fuckin cares? You don't beat the shit out of someone publicly for trying their best at something and not succeeding.

Without reading it, I don't think the article would be related to his effort. It was the stupid penalties he took game after game which lead to PP goals against. Was frustrating to watch, for me at least.

Botchford is a tool! How does the Province newspaper hire idiots like this guy???

-so easy for the media to choose a player as the scapegoat for the Team Canada losing to Finns. Yes, Virtanen did take penalties in the game vs Finland which result in power power goals given up.

What the damn reporters don't realize is that team Canada was never firing on all cylinders throughout the tournament.

If you wanna put blame for the team losing in the quarterfinals to Finland, BLAME THE ENTIRE TEAM AND THE COACHING STAFF. You win and lose games as a team.

Botchford takes the easy route and blames Virtanen instead. I bet this idiot never played one ice hockey game in his life!

Should ask Botchford how he'd feel being plastered all over the front of a newspaper at 19 years old being called the reason something went wrong...... I hope this comes back to bite his ass in the form of getting cut off from Canucks coverage, such a dick move... what an asshole.

I mean come on, the whole team sucked... and if those 2 goalies are the best goalies Canada has to offer right now, we've got a whole lot of problems.

Ya, Blackwood's rebound control vs the Fins was horrendous.

if GM MG was still in power, that regime would have buttoned him up pretty quick as they did with senile old Larschied (sp) when he started blowing his load over iginla and the flames.

this regime though is far to pussy to do anything about it. If i was the Canucks i'd just band together and say fuck Botchford no one give him anything. Especially after all that joe thornton bullshit

Botch didn't write the headline, his article is far less critical of Virtanen than the headline makes it out to be.

After Canada lost in the quarter-finals of the World Junior Hockey Championship, fingers were pointing.
Sunday’s Province back-page headline said ‘Goat-medal winner’ with a photo of Canucks prospect Jake Virtanen, who struggled to find his form at the tournament in Helsinki.

That was too harsh on the 19-year-old, according to many Province readers. Here is a sampling of some of the letters we received by email (edited for clarity and brevity).

Humiliating

I have never written to any editor before but I was shocked to see you degrade and humiliate Jake Virtanen on the back page today.

Yes, he didn’t play as well as he hoped but neither did many other players who also took careless penalties. To single him out and plaster it all over for everyone to see is journalism at its worst. I don’t know the boy, I am not a relative of his, I’m just a teacher who coaches and knows how damaging it is to single out a particular player when it is a team effort. Isn’t that what we try to teach our kids?!

— Delle Booth

A team game

Whoever created this back page obviously never played sports!

Hockey is a team game — you win and lose as a team! You do not pick out and demonize one individual, particularly a 19-year-old who is giving his all for his country.

— Eric Dodds

Nerves on the world stage

Can you imagine the excitement, nervousness and every other emotion these young men must be feeling playing for Canada on the world stage? Jake Virtanen must be feeling absolutely terrible after this game and you people splash this derogatory headline in your paper?

Give your heads a shake and think before you go to print. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

— LeDrew Clarke

Bad D and goaltending

The kid is only 19 years old, for God’s sake. He is a local boy who plays for the Canucks. Yes, he took some bad penalties that he would like to have back (and they weren’t all the greatest of calls) but to single him out in a splashy headline as responsible for the team’s loss, in an effort to sell a few extra copies of your second-rate paper, is disgusting.

Canada lost primarily because of its porous defence and weak goaltending. At least Botch’s column provided some balance.

— Jim Keegan

It was the Finn goalie

Give credit where credit is due: That second Finn goalie stood on his head.

I hope Virtanen will learn a life lesson and go on to be the best player he can be.

— Pat Parkinson

Doom and gloom

Your back page so infuriated me that I had to read the column twice to realize that maybe it wasn’t all negative. Thanks to Jim Benning for his calm measured approach.

I suppose this is true of most media reporting these days. Doom, gloom etc. A little optimism and encouragement would go a long way. After all, aren’t we hoping that he will be one of our next great players? How can that happen with back pages like that? Disgusting!

— Susan Maas
