Last thread way over 1000 posts.
Continue lamenting our horrible lot as Canucks fans here.
So... how bad did Pettersson look after the hit?
Bad. Jelly legs, clearly dazed.
Wobbly trying to get back up, fell to his knees after trying to stand, 100% concussed.
He needs to be shelved for at least a month maybe longer. Concussions have a compound effect.
I lost some respect for Travis Green tonight
Even the casuals on CDC who suck up to everything are pissed about this.
Missed the game and just saw this now.
Any update on EP?
Vancouver has a false perception that they are a playoff team.
So that's why they didn't respond. Show them on the scoreboard.
Only problem is the player hurt is the most important player on the team by 10
On a side note: Alex Auld is a pretty good radio guy. His voice is built for radio and he brings some pretty good insight being an ex NHL player
What is the point of players like Gudbranson and Roussel on this team exactly? What the actual ****.
So after getting all the facts straight it was Travis Green that told the team not to go after Matheson.
"Honest question, does gudbranson step up if it's not his former team?"
If by stepping up, you mean utter death threats. Then yes, of course.
Lol caller drops a clean f-bomb on 650
Some people seem to be misunderstanding why this is going to be a huge issue for Canucks Nation. It has nothing to do with retribution or violence:
1) 90% of the fanbase doesn't give two ****s about 90% of the roster, outside of EP;
2) Our organization has signed boatloads of crap players to "insulate" the youth. PR has largely been that we need these players to avoid this exact situation.
I am not blaming Guddy and Roussel on this one when the Coach was the one that stopped anyone from making a response. The blame lies on Green.
What blew me away, even as far as "reactionary canucks fans on twitter" go, was how many people were wishing Tortorella were still around. Yeah, the most putrid coach in all of Canucks history, a history that literally includes Mike Keenan, would somehow fix this scenario? As if his petulant tunnel display was actually something worthy of worship, and not a perfectly-embarrassing encapsulation on the historic awfulness that was his tenure?
Everyone bringing up the Hamonic payback fight like it was actually a net positive for the Flames...Hamonic got ****ed up! What do you think happens if "not my captain" Bo Horvat steps in for some pushback? Lose your top 2C in one game? Thanks for the season, here's a 20% chance at first overall? So we can send a message to ****ing Florida who we play twice a year?
Talk on SNET 650 about how Boeser got injured last year and there was no response either. "Hard to play against."
Was that Luc Bourdon? Lol. He did say he was going to call in.
His priorities were off tonight.
Lots of pearl clutching going on....probably over nothing.
does travis realize like 80% of canucks fans want the team to draft 1st overall? What does he think people watch these games for?
Games like tonight remind me why, even with Pettersson and some of the other elite talent coming in, this team has sooooo long to go in order to change their aura in Vancouver. Like, congratu-****in-lations, you got your two points. Problem is, most of the fans hate your guts right now. This is on top of fans already despising the front office.
And I suppose if he sent players out specifically for retribution, it would make him....not a coward???? lmao
Re: why there wasn't a penalty. That's Saint-Laurent for ya, he's a garbage ref one of the worst in the league.
I was checking my Twitter. It's like the whole Canuck fan base just snapped, many negative comments in the Canucks official twitter. Not responding to Petterson getting hit is becoming a PR storm. Clearly no one cares about that win.
Let me get this straight; we lose or star player and there wasn’t even a gloved punch or a face wash thrown at the panthers player? That’s the definition of cowardice and bs from the team.
I don’t even think the hit was that dirty if it was dirty but we have seen cleaner hits have pushback which we didn’t have tonight
