Re: Daniel Out 4-6 weeks. Broken foot

We're 5 games in with a somewhat regular line up Hmmmm very " somewhat".. injury bug means we are short 4.. 5 regulars..Sedin, Salo, Hansen, Demitra and Schneider... Its obvious that we are not as defensively strong with Ohlund gone, though Erhoff is looking like a great acquasition. With Salo out ...

Re: Daniel Out 4-6 weeks. Broken foot

No we have a centre. Henrik is a centreman...Daniel is a LW. ( Red faced ) Oooooops, never could tell them apart.. and followed last nights game on radio so didn't notice !.. However Kessler could still contribute as a wing.. Did well in that position with Sundin in center.. As far as the Bernier a...

Re: Daniel Out 4-6 weeks. Broken foot

Who are you going to put on the first line in place of Bernier ? We lost a center.. replace with our next best center .. Kessler . He's looked good the last couple of games and has the speed and checking ability that should improve the defensive play of the line. Plus he can score goals. Now the on...

Re: GDT: Stars @ Canucks - 7pm - SNET-HD

Leave Desbiens in for a couple games more and we'll see if he's ready for the big show. It was his first NHL game and he has size and speed. Its not as though Grabner has ever done anything when he has had a shot to play at NHL level to deserve a shot... and of course Shirikov is still available if ...

Re: Canucks file tampering charges against Maple Leaves

Bieksa makes the top pairing on any team in the league except Calgary . Doubt it.. he is a sieve defensively and takes way to many penalties because of being out of position. I am concerned with our PK this year with Ohlund gone.. Bieksa is not an adequate replacement.. sure he's good offensively. ...

Re: Shirokov to Moose?

Of course the drafts a crap shoot.. On the other hand some teams have better development strategies and staff (Detroit - for last 10 years ). Sending Hodgson down to the juniors makes sense. Keeping Shirikov and Glass means they played their way onto the team - and both have 2 way contracts. I expec...

Re: Does Mason Raymond know how to pass?

Raymond has great wheels... but not much of a shot.. his shooting average is the worst of any of the Canucks forwards.. though Samuelsson may beat it this year.. Speed won't do it if you can't shoot.. Hopefully he'll either learn to shoot... or pass to someone who can... As for Burrows... leave it a...

Re: GDT: Habs @ Canucks - 10/7 - 7pm - TSN-HD

After playing mediocre ( or worse ) goal for his last 6 real games.. Luongo will show up.. SOB will flatten 2 Montreal forwards.. and the nucks will win one.. ( course Montreal playing back to backs just might help a bit )... Kesler line will score.. 2 goals.. Sedins line 2... and Luongo will only l...

Re: GDT: Canucks get BJs

Completely agree.. reason this game was lost is 100% Luongo... 4 goals on 4 shots??? But he really hasn't played great goal in a long time.. going back to the Chicago series.. Maybe we signed a " sometimes great goaltender "? definitely would not be my pick as #1 goaltender for the Olympics.. That s...

Re: GDT: Canucks get BJs

hmmmm BJ's might be just what the Canucks need to relax and start playing good hockey.. Luo and crew got to be better this game.. Kesler line is due to explode.. Seems that since they all got their jobs back ( Raymond notably ) .. They've been a little complacent. Maybe AV will start his famous jugg...

Re: AV Saying that Hodgson is not injured?

Something just tells me this could very well get ugly and go south but I really hope I'm just being a worrywart. dunno Clam, just think you might be right... Hodgson shopping for a doc that will say " injured" after 1 specialist and the Canucks medical staff say he's fit to play?? Not sure that Hod...

Re: So now we know the answer to that time honored question...

A very slow start for Luongo.. and the some of the regulars look a bit rusty... The only concern I have is that we may need the points from the early games because of the horrendous 14 game road trip during the Olympics.. The " success of the playoffs " was in uncovering a couple gems to add to the ...

Re: GDT: Canucks at Avalanche, high noon

No, I didn't miss that.. in the first game it was a dumb first period penalty.. So Sedin takes one to make them 2 short (offensive end ) .. and you call SOB on his but the twins are sacred or what? .. Game against Avs was in 3rd period when SOB gets his elbow up again. and OVER .. and yes Kipper and...

Yeahhhhhh we lose the game 3-0... lets blame SOB... makes real sense.. Nothing to do with the Sedin's or Luongo or the other high paid help?? Right?? Jeeeezussssss LB and Jelly.. get a little perspective.. 2 games in a row the Canucks shit the bed.. and its his fault?????? Please check the +/-'s ......

In one word " dissapointing".... the 3rd line showed up in the first period.. other than Mitchell the rest of the team didn't... or didn't know wtf to do on the ice ..
