Stetcher out. If he is out for any length of time I wonder if they recall Wierioch. If they go with handness, what righties other than Subban do we have in Utica?

Boy, lots of empty seats in the lower bowl in a brand new arena...

Very nice heads up by Jake. Kronwell has been known to really hurt players on that same play.

Another very solid game. None of their wins this year have been flukes. Hard working, a ton of shots and some good finish. Defensively pretty solid even when down to five D. Markstrom with his trademark early bad goal but then shut the door.

PP looking better but still no finish. This team works hard. But it wa Buffalo and Detroit! Let's see how they hold up to better teams.

Nice win. Looks like Green has the team all moving in the same direction. They're playing a style of game that's up-tempo with an emphasis on offense - it's enjoyable to watch (thank fuck after the pain of last year).

All the favourite targets of the benning haters & corsi nerds, players are playing well.

Gudbranson, Dorsett and Virtanen, ironically the only dudes, on this small team, who play with some sandpaper - which this team is hella lacking and sorely needs. I know they will have some bad games and the haters will pounce with a vengeance, but it's nice to see these hard workers settle in and play well.

And good to see other players step up taking turns, this time it's Baertschi. :thumbs:

Marky!

And I'm guessing more enjoyable to play.

3rd in the division, 6th in the conference. Gulp. Ahead of Calgary, Edmonton and Anaheim.

Say it ain't so.

The boo crew can whinge and whine all they want, I’ll take a win in Detroit anytime.

Is Green the best Canuck so far?

It was whinning at least for tonight, and why do you assume I’m talking about you ? You claim you’re not always Canuck bashing Mr “15 points out of a playoff spot” prediction in October?

I never did. It is and was an overpayment of sorts but I didn’t bitch that much about it. It’s isn’t Sutter, Eriksson or Sbisa bad. I’m shocked you like the guy considering your stance on physical play and fighting.

Really Polly do you ever add anything to any thread other than the same stuff day after day after day.

Offer something original for once.

Sorry HW, typing on phone, not Marty but Marky, auto correct and to lazy to type his full name.

I have no illusion that this team is a playoff team, I still think it will be a couple years before they really become a strong playoff team. I am 50/50 on having them make the playoffs vs still getting a chance on a top 5 pick.

The biggest reason I would love to make the playoffs is say a huge FU to the talking maggots who work for TSN.
