    Yes. We still have a hockey team.

    I'll do a GDT tomorrow unless there's any objection.

    JPat is reporting that Hutton is 'out' and Pouliot is 'in. Were Benning and Green watching the same pre-season as everybody else? Almost feel sorry for Markstrom. Guy just hates to lose. But he's going to have to get used to it.

    Looking forward to seeing Pettersson in person. Have great seats about 20 rows up around the faceoff circle in the zone where the Canucks shoot twice so a pretty good vantage point to watch him and Boeser.

    Hutton not playing is comical.
    Pouliot and Guddy have absolutely DREADFUL preseasons, and somehow win a spot over a guy who literally did everything they asked of him to do in hutton, got fit, and played decent in preseason.

    This coaching staff is starting to get as comical as management.

    I'm hoping Elias Pettersson scores his first goal as Vancouver adds to the ROW column. Get all the good vibes out early because things could turn sour even before their big roadtrip is over. Hutton being scratched is a disappointment.

    The only objection is that you think we still have a hockey team. :huh:

    Pouliot in is a crime. He isn't an NHLer.

    Looking forward to watching this, as I always am. I think we'll win it, but Calgary will take the one on Saturday. I think it'll be a 4-2 final, goals by... Players.

    I feel the same as everyone here on Pouliot in over Hutton. Heck, Del Zotto and Gudbranson in over Hutton is a head scratcher, too.

    I’m going against the grain on this one, though. I think the Canucks win, 3-2.

    First goal of the season gets scored by Bo Horvat.

    At least Willie only had one Vey.

    The treatment Pouliot and Leipsic get this year is going to get tiresome really quickly.

    I've still got hope for Lipstick. This team is going to need grit anywhere it can get it.

    Bull**** that Pouliot always gets special treatment from Green because he's one his Portland boys, dude isn't an NHL caliber defenseman.

    Leipisc ended the year scoring at a ~50 point pace, he should absolutely be in the teams starting lineup.

    Pouliot might be the worst defender in the entire NHL at this point though.

    Still quite a bit of tickets available in the lower bowl. Nobody paying $120-150 to watch this trash team lose in their home opener.
