GDT: Johnny Hockey vs. The Alien Invasion 2/9/19 7PM HNIC

Post by Hockey Widow » Fri Feb 08, 2019 3:56 am

It worked last time. Starting the thread early. So why not.

Markstrom to start, duh.

Forwards stay the same unless Sven is good to go.

Defence probably stays the same unless Edler is good to go which he won't be because he's on concussion protocol. And unless Brisbois draws in. One can hope.

The Alien with four point night. He's pissed at himself and will want to atone.

I predict two fights. Don't know who, don't care.

Canucks win.

That's a bit better for Bo, though I'd prefer him with Virtanen and Roussel. I suppose Granlund and Leivo are given the nod as they've scored recently.

Leivo coming off his best game for canux by a mile.

Granlund is mr average when his game is on. He has good quickness and can score a bit. Definitely holding down a spot that he shouldnt be though

I"m interested to see how the Flames goalies do tonight. Rittich made a couple of huge blunders against the sharks and cost them the game. Smith came in relief and was very solid. Hopefully the have a solid 60 minutes against the Canucks tonight. I could see these two teams meeting in the first round of the playoffs.

@Canucks
Baertschi is out with post-concussion syndrome, said Coach Green. "This is not a new concussion. He just wasn't feeling right after the Colorado game. He'll probably be out a little bit."

Morning skate #Canucks lines:

Roussel-Horvat-Goldobin
Leivo-Pettersson-Boeser
Granlund-Sutter-Virtanen
Eriksson-Beagle-Motte
(Schaller)

Tanev-Gudbranson
Hutton-Stecher
Pouliot-Biega
(Brisebois)

Looks like trying to get Bo’s line more offence. Tanev is a disaster on the left. He’ll been on for 4 goals against tonight.

I guess they know something I don't cause I'd have Virtanen right where Goldy is.

I too am not getting Tanev on the left.

Tanev absolutely looks lost on the left.

Thing is who the hell else is going to switch sides?

I’ll be pissed if they tether Virtanen to Sutter again next season. Right now though I think there is a method to Green’s madness and in the end I think he will end up making Jake a more complete player.

I’d like to see MacEwan or Dahlen get a look while Sven is out

Madden is razor thin. He was 151 pounds at the start of the year. Give him a couple seasons.

MacEwan with three points tonight. I think it might be time give him the call

They could insert Brisbois and take Biega out. I don't know if that makes us worse but at least it puts Tanev back in is comfort zone. Hard choices. You know if Hughes was signed he'd be in in a heartbeat.

I agree on Madden, let him develop where he is for at least one more year, maybe two. See how it goes.

I also agree we need a call up to replace Baertschi. Sounds like he could be done for awhile. I think they should shut him down for the rest of the year and let him rest his head.

I'd do this:


Flip Hutty for a 2nd round pick and/or more

Big Tree coming back

Insert Hughes

Edler-Tanev
Hughes-Gudbranson
Tryamkin - plugger
