LOL Blob, you know Doc's gonna rub that in your face right? :mrgreen:

Yup, we're a C minus team but it's good to see the young guys compete and getting better. Even the PP is looking decent tonight.

You still on the Fat Tug IPA diet?
Yeah still hoggin on the fat tug.... fuck me that was my undoing last night. Or maybe it was the shots... it's always brilliant to do piles shooters at the bar right?? The price is right . I did a full shift at work and chased a funeral with a 50th birthday party at the casino. Apparently I shoved a guy at the casino and was a major a hole to the cab driver on the way home. Good times

The Canucks are still in tough to make the playoffs,'with the exception of 3 or 4 teams there could be 10 or so teams going down to the wire in fighting to get into the playoffs. We could end up with the 14th pick or the six pick in short order

Stay away from the shooters, man.

Lol after Tryamkin got stripped of the puck he just tracked down the puck carrier and flicked him into the boards like a rag doll. The size , speed and strength of of this player is off the charts. Elmer's best move was this draft pick. My favourite player on the team along with BoJack.

There's not much to love about this team, but you gotta love the try.

Tryamkin is a beauty! If he ever develops a mean streak, look out NHL.

Holy shit! I blink and it's 2-2 :shock:

Besides speed, what does Megna bring? Can Boucher be any worse?

Man, that Toews goal was just plain bad (Canuck) luck.

Nice to see the tenacity of the Canucks, if not a plethora of talent. Great play by Stetcher to keep the puck and then find the angle for the shot from the point. Bo sure plows through when he wants to and nice hands on putting his own rebound in. Definitely some bright spots to lessen the blow of a not so stellar season.

Speaking of micro brew beers, anyone had these guys: http://www.lestroismousquetaires.ca/en/ They have a great Doppelbock and Porter Baltique (for those who like darks).

Stecher didn't play that well though, it was like he forgot about Toews.

Shit happens. He's a rookie playing out of his depth right now due to injuries and the fact that none of our vets can really move the puck offensively. :P

Willie got out coached badly in the first period.
Quenville put as much pressure as he could on Bo's line but even more than that, he zeroed in on Biega and Tryamkin. Tryamkin had no stamina tonight, maybe sick, and Biega is a nightmare in covering his assignment.
The guy is all over the place. He joins the rush too much and can't get back.
Still, we have to have those two open net rebound chances in the net and we didn't.
Other than being stupid in the last 2 minutes, it was a good road game in which we should have had at least one point. That was a beatable team.
