Big man got big shoes to fill, if he can actually use his size in a physical way it would be awesome. Something this team has never really had.

Listening to the radio this afternoon was so painful.

Can't believe people are already harping on this kid as if he's already a washout before he even gets to start.

Good read in regards to tanking.

Losing mentality vs winning mentality.


Remember giguere ripping on his teammates about some of them are more worried about their vegas trip than the games. That was when sob was on it. Lol

After that, all you need is a lottery win or two, a smart GM, great ownership, a top coach, excellent development, a good goalie, and a few late-round picks to blossom into unexpected stars. Easy, right?


stars that will probably all never align in Vancouver

Crow quit as coach in Switzerland today and is coming back to North America. He said on 1040 this morning his goal is to get back into the NHL and he would even be willing to coach in the AHL or become an NHL assistant coach.

Travis Green is the Canucks next head coach, I think bringing him up and having Crow as an assistant would be fricken perfect.

Willie's gonna get at least a 20 game slack next season

doubt he'd want to be an assistant unless he's exhausted every possible Head Coaching gigs

of the lottery teams, i could see him ending up in CBJ, Sabres, Yotes or maybe Sens or Jets. If Laffs or Coilers get 1st overall i just don't see him playing second fiddle to McLellan or Babcock unless he absolutely wants to stick with Auston

In 2010, we had the Sedins (2nd and 3rd overall picks), AV, home-grown draft picks (Kesler, Edler, Bieksa, Hansen, etc), the best goalie combo in the league in Luongo/Schneider....that was our best chance ever.

...and it only took 40 years...

I'd totally take Crow back as a coach. I like what he did when he was around.

I met Crow during the 2010 playoffs when we were playing the Kings. I believe he was coaching Dallas at the time, but they didn't make the playoffs. Anyways, I was standing behind him in the beer line and recognized his voice when he ordered. I said, "Hey Marc," shook his hand, asked him what he thought of the game, and then a bunch of other people started asking him questions, so I went and ordered my beers.

When I got back to my seat, a couple of Surrey jacks behind him kept taunting him and throwing popcorn at him and his wife until they were ejected. Felt pretty bad for him, but to his credit, he never reacted to those douchebags.

Eichel is helping out the Canucks' quest for a higher pick. So smooth.

Well, when we had crow we had talent for a run and gun offense. We could afford to have a pylon in net. now? we are stuck with plugs. We need a GM who could actually work with crow to give him decent pieces, which as we know at the moment, is not going to happen.
