Thanks, tant, for your insightful post. It echoes my thoughts exactly. The NHL needs to look at the *intent* of the hit---in this case, to injure---regardless of the actual injury. The fact that Pronger is an all-star, Norris trophy winner, etc. SHOULD be irrelevant in the suspension decision, but u...

I think Arbour and tantalum have it right on the mark: When the Canucks are on the PP, they tend to simply stand around like a bunch of wallflowers, waiting for someone else to make things happen. Compare that with Anaheim, whose players are constantly moving around and getting open. That's what mad...

Woohoo! You can bet the farm on the Canucks now! Oh wait ... Maggie's picks were a lackluster 4-4 in the first round. Oh well... bet the farm on it anyway, 'cause I've also picked the Canucks to win! Go Canucks!

I'm 5-0 in predicting Canucks victories when I've posted predictions on this site, so I'm not about to change my strategy now!

VAN over ANA in 6
S.J over DET in 6
BUF over NYR in 5
OTT over N.J in 6

There's lots of good reasoning in other posts on this thread, thus no need for me to repeat it. Here's my first-round predictions. (Note I've never yet predicted a Vancouver loss and am 4 for 4 so far on this site---let's hope this trend continues!) DET over CGY in 5 MIN over ANA in 7 VAN over DAL i...

As much as I dislike both teams, I'd rather see the Flames make the playoffs than the Avs. Main reason: Avs have had more than their fair share of playoff appearances---I think the last time they didn't make the playoffs was in 1994 when they were the still the Quebec Nordiques. Also, I generally li...

Awww man... now I have to endure another 8 games against Minnesota next season? I was SOO hoping that the NHL would come to their senses about this *!@#$ schedule. While the pre-lockout schedule would already have been a world better, even that doesn't go far enough in balancing the schedule. I agre...

I wholeheartedly agree with capt canuck. Either make every game 2 points, or make every game 3 points with points allotted as described above. Having some games worth 2 and some worth 3 is ridiculous and completely warps the statistics. Take for example a team's winning percentage: In any normal spo...

Sorting by points can be misleading. Sorting by a team's +/- or PCT is a more accurate predictor---and by that criteria we're actually still LAST: Northwest GP W L OL PTS +/- PCT GF GA GFA GAA GDA ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 Edmonton ...

When the Canucks change their logo (and they will), I hope they make the logo smack of wimpiness. Why? Just look at the Sabres' wimpy new "slug" logo and how well they're doing this year. Players forced to wear those ugly logos are actually playing as if they've got something to prove! Canucks could...

Pyatt, Salo, Rypien all injured in Edmontan debacle

Pyatt out for probably 4 weeks. Salo out for 2 weeks. This bodes ill. Ten bucks says the Canucks won't score more than 2 goals in any game for at least the next 2 weeks.
