that's a yikes from me fam
Make no mistake, Auston Matthews' contract is a game changer for legit UFAs going to open market. Stone and Panarin are set to become among the highest paid players in the league.
I mean, thats to be expected when two elite 27 year olds hit the UFA market where they don't cost any assets to acquire.
It's why it's so important to draft well, develop well, and take swings on long term contracts for young players who are hopefully just about to break out. The teams who got their top guys under contract on those 6-7 year deals between 5.5-6.5MM must feel extremely good right now.
The keyword is "..CAN MAKE a good first pass..". Surely every once in a while he manages to make A good pass!
HE STOOD UP FOR A TEAMMATE!!!!!
(And threw 2 punches)
BUT HE STOOD UP FOR A TEAMMATE!!!!!!
His value is now a 6th rounder!!!!
Feels like every time he steps on the ice these days the puck ends up in the back of the net. Incredible that a player of this caliber is getting regular minutes in the NHL.
His value is now a potato instead of a ham sandwich.
A potato can be made into a handful of things! That’s pretty good!
PG, Gudbranson is a travesty of a player, but you have to give him his due when he goes at Getzlaf like that. It's what he is here to do. When he does it, you have to give him the accolades.
Threw some haymakers at Getzlaf
I’m sorry but 2 1/2 years of being a coward doesn’t just disappear from memory. Appreciate him fighting Getz as he’s a fairly tough customer. Was actually shocked it was Gudbranson fighting him at first. I’ll give him props but it doesn’t change anything.
wow now he's totally worth the money and assets
Well at least you’re not going overboard with it, that I can appreciate.
Gudbrandson is not a coward. He’s not a very good player and I get why a lot of fans dislike certain aspects of his game but he’s not a coward
Yes, he is.
How is he a coward? Have you ever seen him turn down a fight? He has faught plenty of tough customers. He has answered the bell after he has thrown questionable hits and he has stuck up for teammates.
How is he a coward?
It's weird, isn't it? He fought Martin, who's considered one the toughest, when he went after Stecher. He beat up Wilson and broke Hamonic's jaw. Getzlaf was the one who looked like a coward, turtling early in the fight, then grinning in the penalty box. That'll get wiped off next game. I wonder if he would call him that to his face?
Agree with everything you said minus Getzlaf being a coward. He actually answered the bell when challenged unlike Matheson who’s a coward
Gudbrandson is definitely not a coward. Say what you want about his defensive game and his contract but he’s not a coward
Other than Dorsett, Gudbrandson is probably the least cowardly player to play for the Canucks since he arrived
Agreed, Matheson must have lost all respect from his teammates. Goofslap's just a ********.
Of course it doesn't at least not for the haters. I swear they are all totally choked that he actually took on a nasty piece of work like Getz immediately after they all called him stupid names (like "coward"). You could sense the rage. It was like he ruined a perfectly good two minute hate. Naturally the die hards crapped all over him anyways...
He’ll certainly answer the bell if challenged or somebody gives HIM a cheap shot. Unlike Guds though, Dorsett will be the first guy in if somebody gave a Canuck a cheap shot. What did he do when EP was given cheapshots?
The die hard haters will never give credit to anything even when it’s deserved. The fact that they call our toughest player a coward shows just how hard they will try to spread the hatrid. Sucks to be them
He he was right there trying to jump in on Pacquette but Hutton got their first and he faught Haley against the Panthers because Matheson was to much of a wuss to answer the bell
Those don't count apparently.
Separate names with a comma.
