GDT: Canucks @ Oilers Oct 13/21 7:00 PM. SN

Post by Hockey Widow »

Game 1 for real!!

Will we get to see our newest Fin? Will Brock play? Who of the three scrubs will get in? Will Big Mac clear waivers?
Enquiring minds want to know.

What we do know, or think we know, is this:

1) Demko to start
2) OEL, Hughes, Poolman, Myers will all play. Who will be the other two?
3) Pettersson will play, but with whom?
4) Miller will play but will he play centre or move back to being one of Petty's wingmen?
5) Will Podkolzin get his first game in? We know he is on the roster.

Stay tuned.

GDT. You win, you do the next one. You lose, and move out of the way for someone else.

Thanks for the GDT Widow!

It's a Travis-ty that at what should be the dawn of a new era for the Nucks there are so many questions about the opening line-up.

At the very least I hope Travis sticks with his line combinations for a few games and doesn't immediately reach for the blender.

Or, he fucking bombs and 20 games in the gong sounds to end this amateur show. If that happens our playoff chances will be slim methinks.

GO NUCKS!!!

Fuckin coilers. They've had Vans number for a while now.

I honestly have no idea what we will see tonight from the Canucks. The preseason did not look promising at all except for one game that they lost dressing a mish mash of scrubs and a few regulars.

I will always remember this day as the day Captain Kirk made it into space, and the beginning of the season when the Canucks won their first Stanley Cup….

Thanks Wids, for getting the season going!

Is this a real game, to start a real season? It feels almost like another pre-season game with so much in flux. Green will hopefully resist the urge to change up line combos, and let the guys get to know each other a little.

I think we'll see a focused Demko, who just might steal this one tonight.

Cheering for the Canucks tonight (although I won't be watching). According to the Edmonton media, the oilers are bordering on an elite team :roll: :roll:

I guess that's what happens when you live in such a depressing shit hole like Edmonton. :mex:

I have a good feeling about Wids starting the first official GDT of the season :D

Can't believe I didn't come up with "Travis-ty" :lol: Good job 5th

Seems like we've been waiting a loooong time for this day to come. It's finally here. Let's Go!
