Discussion in 'WHL' started by PG Canuck, Sep 17, 2017.
The countdown is on.
my prediction now for league finals.....
Kelowna VS Portland in the west
a rematch of Regina VS Lethbridge in the East
Cant wait for the season to start!!!!
Well, we will at least have Josh Anderson back for the home opener. First ever banner raising in PG! So excited, should be a great night.
Also, for the STH's out there...do you get a package or any kind of goodies? This thought came to me looking at the mainboards and seeing what NHL STH's get. Just wondering if any WHL teams throw in anything cool for being a STH.
I know the Cougars aren't even giving out tickets for STH's anymore - it will be like a bank/credit card, and they will just scan it for each home game. Kind of cool actually. I actually ended up getting season tickets as I can write them off, but have yet to receive my little package for being a STH.
Excited for it all to start. Hoping for Skinner to be more consistent and to play like he did in the playoffs against Medicine Hat all season. Also excited to see how Dylan Cozens can build on his excellent playoffs. Hopefully Giorgio Estephan can follow in Tyler Wong's steps as one of the best 20 year olds in the league. Finally hoping to see Jordy Bellerive build off his fantastic training camp for Pittsburgh and become an offensive leader for the Hurricanes.
This is what I received with my season tickets. And after four years of tickets, they put me in row five instead of four. I got it fixed for the exhibition game, picked up my tickets yesterday and was back in five. So I still have the card for discounts at the store and concession, but I also have a stack of regular tickets, in my normal seat.
I think I have to go pick mine up tomorrow. I'll definitely be using those food vouchers/coupons. Last year it was A&W on the back of tickets and I used the hell out of those after games.
10% off at the concession is a terrible idea. I'm going to eat so much salty popcorn.
I know. It makes you buy a drink. ********.
Watching my first live WHL game live between PG and Spokane tonight
This could be a long season. Grant is looking horrible
I miss Edmonds.
Grant was very shaky in net tonight, and we need to work on our defense. Way too many breakaways.
Ty Smith was real good
Kid is unreal.
wait till Yamamoto comes back and he will look even more lethal... Smith gonna put up 80+ points this year
Brennan Menell signed with Minny, so most likely he's not coming back. The Hurricanes filled his spot by trading a third rounder for Tate Olson. Is he any good?
He's decent. He's able to QB a PP. I wasn't his biggest fan. He's decent defensively but likely will need a more reliable partner. I'm happy PG decided to trade him and keep their other older players as I don't think Olson's game justifies itself by keeping him as a 20 year old.
Another tough loss for P.G. tonight. This team needs to pull their act together soon.
I've seen Olson a few times in Victoria and my overall impression was "meh"
Seemed okay for a WHL dman, but didn't do anything flashy or made him stand out. If he wasn't drafted by the Canucks, I doubt I would've really noticed him out there.
Not even the slightest bit surprised. Goaltending will be the killer this season. They outshot Seattle, with Seattle only having 22 shots yet lose 5-1. Bad goaltending, and bad offense is not a good combo. PG will be lucky to be in contention for 8th seed once Xmas hits.
Steenbergen is going to have a huge season.
Holy crap. PG won a game.
Not only that we got a shutout!!!
Against Portland too. Hmm.
I just checked again, we were outshot 47-29. Tavin Grant might finally be pulling himself together.
