Sorry Chef. Roussell was embarrassing with his playing the bad guy shit. Not the way to do it.
He's a pest, what would you have him do?
Back it up a wee bit more. Have a fight. Take someone important with you. Oh, he tried but they weren't going to have any of it.
Well if he tried to fight guys, what are you complaining about? :eh:

Damn, I think Rooster is smaller than every player on that dirty fucking Knights team...

Micky wrote: Sun Aug 23, 2020 10:26 pm Fuckers were laughing at the bench.
Yes because they were winning the game handily.

They were laughing because Reaves was "bwaak-bwaak-bwaaking" at Rooster.

They know Rooster would be crazy to fight Reaves, he's a pest, not a heavyweight.

But they wouldn't have been playing silly games and laughing if they were trailing.

Our scorers need to up their game, Rooster is not the guy you should be complaining about...

I like Bailey as well, but I'm not sure if this is the time to bring him in, just too green. I think the guy to bring in is Zack Attack Pack MacEwen (drop Eriksson or Hockey Gaud). He doesn't have to fight Reeves or anything, but just play his game and finish his checks whenever he can to give the team some energy. Stand up for teammates when he has too.

Don't blame Rooster for trying to give us an edge, but it was prob a mistake. Rooster should cut the yapping for now and just play his hard, gritty, 2-way game.

Wow. The NFL would love that for its pure gamesmanship. Reaves is pure asshole and Roussel actually plays it pretty well there. As usual, the NHL picks the absolute wrong thing to be concerned about. F..

"We're definitely not going to flush it and move on. We're going to analyze it tomorrow. We need to be better with the puck, that'd be a start. I thought in general, even in the first period, we missed some pucks we normally have. They got a quick team, that might have been part of it. Their speed might have caught some of our players by surprise. We'll definitely have to be better with the puck. It's a different type of game tonight than any other type we've played. this is probably our worst game so far, so the adjustments will be different. First and foremost we have to play a lot better if we want to respond. I have a lot of belief in our group." - Green

Post game, Green; This was right after the game ended..Next segment is Markstrom and Edler.

Green did not say they were tired. :crazy: Many things to go over.

First question to Marky was about understanding why he was being taken out of the game. :look: :look:

actually, Vegas was coming off a five day break.

Oh well at least we made it to the 2nd round, pretty good for a young core team.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

The canucks are pooped. No gas.
Because they have zero adrenaline going. When you got adrenaline going you can go all night.

That was a poor game. Good thing the series is played in stand alone increments.

As poor as it was, while the game was a going concern, you could see the kinds of adjustments that the Canucks could make that would improve their chances. The Knights made less mistakes and capitalized on some real Canuck brain farts, in addition to tactically playing a game the Canucks didn’t adjust well to. Sharpness and smarts are on the individual players—I can’t imagine we will see so little spark and so many mistakes again. And tactics, there will be adjustments from Green and they will go away.

As for Reaves and Roussel, it’s a total distraction. So what if Reaves embarrasses Roussel and Roussel’s antics backfire. For those pining for Reaves, I admit he played a good game overall (not just with Rooster), but the guy has a long track record of inconsistent play and getting schooled. He’s a flawed bottom 6 players — most are — and not one who takes over.

That’s not to say he can’t have good games, he can. By the way, I thought the play of the game was when Reaves let up so as to not end Gaudette’s season. 88 became vulnerable and Reaves let up. Reaves’ game was pretty clean overall last night—the hard hits were good hockey hits and the get-a-pass-in-the playoffs stick work was all well within the norm.

You know the Canucks outshot the Knights 13 to 5 When Reaves was on the ice. Please Vegas! Play him more! He’s an idiot.

For Doyle - Horvat played like a 4th line centre last night. Benn was his usual pylon self. Stecher? Nothing new here
