GDT: Jan 2, 2017 Avs @ Canucks 7:00 pm. SN

Post by Hockey Widow » Mon Jan 02, 2017 1:35 pm

Holy hell, it's 2017,

Miller to start.

Burrows out, has a scratch on his eye. He is day to day. We'll get a glimpse of life without Hansen and Burrows tonight :mrgreen:

Rodin in. He will play with Horvat and Baertschi.

I guess that means Magna is with the twins. Or does it? Maybe it means Louie is back with them. Or maybe Sutter. Or all three, not at the same time of course silly.

A win tonight draws us back to .500 hockey and, if I'm reading the standings right, one point out of a playoff spot. Yikes, say it ain't so Sam, say it ain't so.

Pedan reassigned to Utica. Thanks for coming out bud. Nice seeing ya again. Unreal WD won't give him a sniff. I honestly don't know if he has an NHL career in him.

A win would equal our season start of 4 consecutive wins. Only 11 behind Columbus and their streak.

6-0 Canucks. Really.
The only HW the Canucks need

Amazing what a 3 win streak can do in the land of parity! :D

6-0? Sure! - it's gotta happen sometime, right?

I am kind of hoping Rodin has some good chemistry with Bo & Sven, they had a little in preseason, that way when Burrows comes back he can slide o to the Sedin line until Hansen gets back...

It would be even better if Louie stuck with the twins. A third line of Sutter/Granlund/Burrows would be pretty ok.

I am really, really hoping the Canucks don't take this miserable team lightly.
The Avs are in such disarray, from now on, most of them will be playing for their careers.
Dangerous... :-o

Willie figuring out how to motivate these guys now hey?

Hoping Rodin storms into the scene like a pocket full of green.

Lol!

With Burr & Honey Badger out who will provide the tenacious forecheck?

If they can play a full 60 like they did in Edmonton they should be able to pull this off

4-2 Canucks

Hutton with the GWG

But he won't smile when he scores because he is finally learning that soon to be multimillionaires in their early 20s who play hockey for a living have no reason to have a shit-eating grin constantly pasted on their faces.

Yet McDavid, Laine, Eichel and Matthews play with dead pan cranky faces all the time even though they are on the verge of being 4 of the highest paid players in the game. Nahhhh, Hutton is a pure goof like smiley Curtis Lazar the bust.

Anyone else notice Rodin was smiling?

This could be bad.
