Official NHL thread - 2016-2017 season

Postby beken » Wed Oct 05, 2016 6:10 am

Just thought I would start the thread since pre-season is under way.

UBC Alumni was given a deal for tickets to some games for $69 per ticket. In the lower bowl too!
Seems they sold out in a week.

It's unfair. When I was in Phoenix a few years back, the MINI club had a group rate of $10 a ticket and it includes parking and beer.

^$69 to watch the 'Nucks? Hmm.... It's not like they have some hot young stars this year. Methinks it's going to be a hard season to bear this winter in Vancouver.

Wow! 4 goals on his debut NHL game. Can he keep it up for 82 games?

Well, the Canucks have won their first two games in spite of being down after two periods. I think I saw somewhere that their record last season in that category was around 3 wins and 30 losses. I wonder if they'll be able to improve on that statistic before the early season bubble bursts....

They've improved already....3 wins in a row. All three wins after regulation time.

I wonder if they can keep this up over 82 games.

Wow...those Canucks.

4-0 to start the season. and two of those goals against were own goals. They're looking pretty good defensively so far.

Canucks dropped a game against LA but still came out of with a point. Lost in OT if I recall correctly. Interesting to see how they'll fare against Anaheim. Read an article on the CBC website about their play this year. Seems like they've shifted their focus from developing their young players to going for the wins.

So now the Canucks are riding an eight game losing streak. This is going to be a long season....

Looks like a long season. No goal scoring. Shut out 4 out of 5 games.

Well, at least the 'Nucks managed to snap their 9 game losing streak. Time to start another one I suppose.... :lol:

Well, not sure if it makes you feel any better, but the Sabres are not doing much better. Plus to top it off, they lost the Caps last night. All I can say is thank goodness Psycho was working - so I didn't have to suffer him rubbing it in! lol

^ Oh dear.... Well, let's see...when do the Caps play the Habs? In January?!? Okay. Hopefully Price will be in fine shape and the Habs will triumph. :D

Looks like the Sabres have a chance at upsetting the Senators tonight. :)

^ My condolences. Ex-Sabre Ryan Miller has been doing okay over in Vancouver. Apparently he gave up a flubber of a goal in a game against the Ducks but was able to redeem himself the next game.

Well, they pulled off an upset of sorts today. Knocked off the Oilers in OT. :)

^ Ouch! Talk about a hard hit. Larsen (obviously) never saw what hit him.

Reminds me of something a neighbour told us back in 1975: He was at a Canucks game and some idiot in the crowd with a heavy English accent was yelling "Keep your head down when you cross the (blue) line!". You might be able to get away with that in football, mate but hockey?...no way!
