Re: 'nucks at 'yotes, 6:00 PM SNET, team1040

Lou is definitely resembling Sanford more than himself. It seems as though he is still slow moving to the right, because teams keep on setting up the one timers off the right side, especially on the powerplay and they are going in more than I feel good about. Is this still a groin issue?

Re: Canuck FA at the end of the season

Well Miller Time if we could set the terms of the contract like you're suggesting, of course we should re-sign them. This team can't win anything with the Sedins at 6.5 or 7 million, that's too much invested in 50 goals. Hossa and Sundin with Demitra centering a second line sounds much better to me...

Re: Canuck FA at the end of the season

I am curious to know just who we are going to replace the Sedins with next year if we don't sign them. The free agent list is not very strong and as the year wears on I am sure it will get even shorter. If we let these two go then where is our scoring going to come from? Nobody on the team is ready ...

Re: Top 3 Players

I'm not even sure I would put Malkin in the top 3 players right now. Yes statistically, but I just don't think he measures up to some of the other players out there.

Re: GDT: Canucks in the Tank - 7:30, TSN

Considering the situation, on the road, in San jose, I don't care if it is boring, as long as they get the win. Yes it is not pretty, very simple dump and chase with little forechecking pressure, but so far so good.

Lou is starting to look better... lets keep it up for 6 more minutes....

Re: GDT: Canucks in the Tank - 7:30, TSN

Not a bad start but Edler and O'Brien look awful, they should not be paired together. Salo has calmed the defense down a bit, but Bieksa is still making panicked plays in his own end. Would like to notice Sundin's presense other than in the penalty box.

Re: To make the playoffs

As Veenyo has repeatedly stated, it is not a matter of lines but duos instead. That is why everything is still alphabet soup because it always will be with Veenyo. I'm not sure if I agree with it, but expecting that to change is not going to happen. I think the Canucks are close to going on a tear a...

Re: GDT: BJs vs Canucks

Why is Bieksa playing so many minutes every night? It seems as though Ohlund and he are just getting tired and making mistakes. I think Salo coming back will help, but the All Star break will be good for these guys. The top 3 are looking worn down.

Re: GDT: Canucks host Coyotes - 7PM - SNet

This is some of the worst hockey I have seen the Canucks play in a long time. Imagine how V feels, it seems like nothing he does is waking them up. I'm not sure what will.

Re: Sanford placed on waivers

This is a more important decision than we may think. Groin injuries tend to linger and it could possibly reappear, so Labarbera could possibly play a role again later in the season. For that reason, I am glad that they kept Labarbara over Sanford as he has more upside and could possibly play a start...

Re: GDT: Devils possess the Garage: 7pm PPV, Team1040

From what I have seen of the highlights it looks as though a combination of a lack of defensive coverage and goalie miscues. Overall a lack of focus and evidently based on Bowness at practice the coaches are getting tired of the lack of effort on defense.

Re: Luongo back next thursday?

The allstar game is not a a reason for Lou to come back sooner. Why not take advantage of that extra time with the all star break to make sure he is healed up and ready to go. It just makes sense.

Re: GDT: Sharks in the Garage! 7pm CBC - NHLN(US)

Two games in a row that Sundin has cost us a win with an untimely penalty. I still like him and he is rounding into form, but he has to pick up the pace and start skating instead of taking these bad penalties.

Re: Luongo's return...

I wonder what effect Luongo's injury might have on the Canucks chances of resigning him in the summer. Could this maybe make him a bit cheaper?

Re: Mason raymond best Canuck tonight?

It was great to see the Nucks pull one out in a shootout. It is a concern for them this year because they have nobody who had any real success in shootouts. If Wellwood can continue to score like that on the shootout then his value might be there. Same for Krog, that shot was a beauty. Other than th...
