    Sorry for starting this one.

    Lineups TBD

    Canucks has yet to score more than 3 goals in a preseason game.

    Well.. last night was certainly the end of Archibald and Gaudette.... at least.

    Whose opening night dream ends tonight?

    Eh, why not. It'll be fun to watch the Oilers dance through out defense.

    Dare I say it. Player for player, ottawa has a better roster.

    My guess on this one: pettersson and horvat plays. Boeser sits.

    Between the two-Horvat has earned to sit..Boeser needs to play.

    I love how the game day threads are now starting with an apology...:laugh:

    Last two preseason games, they'll be starting a close-to-opening-night roster. Maybe Horvat and Edler sit. Pettersson and Boeser need to play, one to get the experience the second to get going.

    Otoh, maybe sitting a couple of games would re-energize him and get rid of the sluggishness.

    There would also probably be a lot less screaming from Canucks fans if he sat for a couple of preseason games than if he sat the first two regular season games. :))

    Top 3 Favourite Players on this current roster in order?

    For me:

    1. Petterson
    2. Boeser
    3. Horvat

    Going to get myself a Petterson jersey when I’m back in Canada for the holidays.

    Willie Desjardins would've claim Boeser is already tired from training camp.:sarcasm:

    Boeser will be ok once the real season starts - that I have no doubt.

    Pffft. This Oilers group has no idea what it's in for. An NHL defensemen doesn't really know defense until he plays 300 games. And our very own Erik Gudbranson is only 9 games away from 400. He'll be even better! That's just simple math, kids.

    ...

    We're gonna die. :laugh:

    Two games left. I'd think green has his full lineup minus Roussel in one of the two.

    Fridge's last game tonight I assume.

    Oil fan. I have watched all of the Canucks pre-season games. Petterson is head and shoulders better than anybody I see on the ice on the Canucks. You can tell he has very high hockey IQ.

    And then we'll get our hopes up for 1st overall, start pencilling in Hughes as our 1st line centre, and then draft 5th overall. But it's cool because we'll have Dahlen, Gaudette, Gadjovich, Lind, Woo, Juolevi, and Hughes all on our roster because all of them will be great. That's the year of a Canucks fan in a nut shell.
