Gudas hit on Farnham in Februrary didn't warrant susp, and Virtanen's did? Consistency.

have you seen (or read about) who runs the nhl?
player safety department is player safety by name only

might as well be monkeys in the background determining logic for suspensions

In light of what is happening with Duncan Keith right now, I leave this here.

Blackhawks? Duncan Keith rips into female Vancouver reporter | National Post

He is a great player but can snap and go Raffe Torries/Matt Cooke too.

On Gudas, at that point he had already been ejected from 2 games in the prior month for illegal checks. So that was his 3rd game misconduct/match penalty for illegal hits in 4 weeks. And didn't receive a single suspension.

He did get suspended earlier this season for a check on Mika Zibanejad and also received another game misconduct (no suspension) for a hit in October.

Basically, he's Raffi Torres ... But he plays for the Flyers, so the NHL doesn't care.

Raffi is he man! When gillis didn't resign him all our grit and hits left as well...till kenins showed that he could hit for half a season then is most likely gone at the end of the year!

the commentator on the Gudas hit: "I don't think that's a match penalty, a minor maybe."

IMO, and i am sure a lot of people wont agree, as well I am sure Nabatron will fail me for an opinion and reply with a lot of !!!!!!!!

but..

I think Mccann has a higher ceiling then Virtanen, Virtanen has been able to show more this season because of his size right out of junior where Mccann needs to put on 10-15lbs.


..Flame on

i kinda agree but its way too early still to really concretely say who's got a higher ceiling
McCann would definitely benefit from a year or two in Utica building strength and good habits
...that is until fuckface Benning decides to trade him for another plug because he wasn't sure if the scoring will translate into the NHL


imo, Jake would benefit more staying in the NHL and learning the power game in measured minutes and limited roles

Damn Sportsnet Pacific showed that stat of the Canucks having a undefeated record of 5-0 in road games vs San Jose since 2013. They're jinxing the tank!!


-also saw this tweet: Vancouver Canucks ‏@VanCanucks 11h11 hours ago
The #Canucks travel to California and look for their sixth win in a row against the Sharks at the Shark Tank.


C'mon Tankcouver!

I wouldn't worry...The inevitable collapse is just around the corner. Plus with Bart and Vey...how can we possibly win!
