Re: What if Raycroft is for real?

Too early to tell.... but so far has looked good... numbers when he was brought in after Luo was pulled were good... 3 starts.. 1 in LA he stole the game.. 1 in Anaheim.. he suckd along with the whole team.. 1 he played a good game.. 18 stops against a dead tired AV's team for a shutout... I am impr...

Re: GDT: Avalanche hits GM place -- 7:00 PM, PPV

It was a good win..Defensively executed well for the most part.. Kesler was superb.. with all our injuries and team mates changing game to game it was great to see such a cohesive effort.. Kudo's .. After that I leave for Asia for a month and will be subscribing to some NHL Gamecenter online to watc...

Re: Burrows injured?

Not sure that this is news or a rumour? Seems unlikely that AV would send Shirikov back to the Moose if Burrows was too injured to play? But all these injuries brings into question the value of MG " conditioning guru".. Remember ? it was just last year that Gillis hired an expert to cut down on inju...

Re: GDT: Canucks/Moose @ Anaheim 7PM SNET-P(HD)

UPDATE! Mario Bliznak in, Sergei Shirokov out! Makes sense. Physical game against the Ducks.. dress another Dman ( SOB ), add a defensive center. Too bad Shirkov hasn't adjusted to the NHL yet though.. looked great in pre season. Ducks are the most penalized team in the NHL right now so I expect a ...

Re: GDT: Canucks/Moose@LA - PPV 7:30

And SOB is out - so he's likely pissed . Should be pissed.. Edler has absolutely sucked so far this year and SOB's one of the few + defencemen.. Guess AV's pissed at SOB's dumb penalty against Detroit.. Well now we'll see if Rome can play forward.. he wasn't much at defence .. With Edler in.. SOB o...

GDT: Canucks/Moose@LA - PPV 7:30

No Luongo.. No Johnson but maybe Salo and Rypien back on the team. LA has been hot so far this season but has a questionable defence so might be vulnerable . I am looking forward to seeing Kopitar and crew for the first time this season. With Salo back and Schneider on the back end AV has a far bett...

Re: Add Another to the Injury List: Luongo

Jchockey said: I question Vigneault's antics to start Luongo with the injury against Detroit but why doubt your best player after he posts a shutout against Edmonton and declares he's ready to go? Agree, don't know if Luongo told AV about the injury though. It would have been a good time to start R...

Re: Add Another to the Injury List: Luongo

Jelly said: If we can plan responsible defense and holding shots count down, we should be fine with Raycroft in net. These injuries, although hurts our outlook in this season, eventually will help in future seasons. Grabner, Shirokov, Bolduc, Glass, Rome, and in short Schneider, are getting ice tim...

Re: Add Another to the Injury List: Luongo

..... Not so worried about Luongo.. though it might take more than a week .. But 7 regulars out? Got to be a new Canucks record.. My last post I said " 6 " but forgot about Wellwood ( who has been invisible for most of this season ).. As most of the games in the "new" NHL are decided by special team...

Re: Add Another to the Injury List: Luongo

ouchhhhhh... Luongo out .. Johnson out ... That kind of explains the third period meltdown of the Canucks against Red Wings.. Province is reporting Rypien will take Johnsons spot as 4th line center.. a good energy guy but not the face off and defensive specialist that Johnson is.. 6 regulars out... ...
