Canucks in Spengler Cup
 
Schnieder - Friebourg

Good to see him getting some playoff type experience.

Kirill Koltsov - Ufa

Remember him? Looking forward to potentially seeing how he has progressed. Too bad he never committed to NA, he would probably be a big part of our team being an offensively blessed RHD, would look great with the twins and Edler.

Josh Holden - Team Canada

Ooooh, yeah, our two way shut down center of the future, the Joe Colbourne of his day :)

Tim Calhoun 12-27-2012 12:55 PM

Koltsov is a LHD.

Mr. Canucklehead 12-27-2012 01:03 PM

Koltsov had some of the sickets hands I've ever seen on a Canuck prospect. Damn shame he didn't stick it out in North America - I think he'd have been a terrific offensive defenseman.

Josh Holden...man. Wasn't he on pace to be great, but he mangled his wrist or something? I seem to recall his shot being his bread and butter, but his wrist getting injured after his draft year.

Koltsov would never have flourished playing in a Canucks defensive system.

well, corrected I am, seems the parent site have got it wrong

fine, put Edler on the right like we did with Ehrhoff

Still super skilled

Yeah, but he'd be great in this one, apparently his defensive game has improved a great deal, I would love to see him and Kane matched up for a playoff series, very similar players in all ways except one is F and the other D

Byron Ritchie with 2 goals. All that icetime he got with us is paying off I see.

Why didn't we keep holden on to josh?

Royal Canuck 12-27-2012 03:10 PM

will be interested to see how Cory plays in an international event like this overseas.

Because he had some bad habits and a bum wrist.

Yeah his hand/wrist got stepped on in during a game and he was never the same. It wasn't just his shot that suffered, it was also the way he played. He started to shy away from the dirty area's after that.

I'll go with a 97.8% save percentage. He's gonna kill it.

Patrick Kane undresses Schneider before the Spengler Cup.


He stayed fairly composed, not much he could've done besides the poke check.

WeberStreit 12-28-2012 08:09 AM

Cory is playing right now. Game is under way since some minutes...

Oh really? TSN2 is airing it at 11:00am. Just assumed it would be live for whatever reason. Will be sure to stay out of this thread for the next few hours then!

How did he play?

BerSTUzzi 12-28-2012 12:01 PM

lost 2-1, 2 goals on 17 shots...his team was all over Viktovice.

Lucbourdon 12-28-2012 02:09 PM

Is there a repeat of the game anywhere?, I really wanna watch

StringerBell 12-28-2012 02:24 PM

Damn, thought TSN was showing it at 11 but it's the Davos game instead. Not impressed!

JanBulisPiggyBack 12-28-2012 02:32 PM

HOLY DOG BALLS

I never knew how awesome Kiril Koltsov looked, I got into following Canucks Prospects right around the time Grabner was drafted, I know its a highlight reel so even Jan Bulis could look good ( Prolly not )


Edit - Its also the bigger ice, so its not likely to happen in North America

ZenMaster* 12-28-2012 03:23 PM

Koltsov looks incredible in that video, it would be nice to see a dangler of that caliber on the Canucks roster.

jigsaw99 12-28-2012 04:22 PM

Koltov was probably our next highest skilled player after Naslund when he got drafted. If he stayed another year he would probably made full time...

actually probably not since AV hates skilled rookie player especially skilled Europeans.

Taelin 12-28-2012 10:10 PM

Does anyone know if Schneider is going to play in net for his team in the Spengler Cup tomorrow morning?
