Re: OOTS 11/12 playoff edition

Friedman's take on Crosby and the series http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/opinion/2012/04/crosby-centre-of-attention-in-wrong-way.html If I was a Flyer, I'd have wanted to rip into anything in a white jersey after James Neal's hit on Sean Couturier. It was dirty and made Aaron Rome/Nathan Horton look...

Re: GDT: Game 3 Vancouver @ LA Kings - April 15 7:30pm - CBC

His last post he said he'd probably have to hit the storm shelter. I think he's posted on HF Boards once or twice since then. But, yeah, I imagine he's in the thick of it, like usual. You're out there, too, WF?

Re: GDT: Game 3 Vancouver @ LA Kings - April 15 7:30pm - CBC

Really? I think he did a great job of that last game on that line(as he's done pretty much all year long). The play dies when he gets the puck to Booth in tight on the boards. David just can't stickhandle in tight very well( as someone here has mentioned once or twice...). I think higgy is fine and...

Re: GDT: Game 3 Vancouver @ LA Kings - April 15 7:30pm - CBC

No word from Tant lately? I hope when he crawls out from his storm shelter, the sun is shining, the house is in one piece and the Canucks have taken one back from the Kings. Still think they should have Lapierre on the first instead of Hansen -- not because I don't think Hansen is the better player,...

Re: GDT - R1G2 - Canucks vs Kings 7PM PST CBC

Bear in mind the mighty Pens are in the same boat as us -- and allowed 8 goals. Giroux with a seven point night. So we won't be the only ones having nightmares tonight.

Re: GDT - R1G2 - Canucks vs Kings 7PM PST CBC

Hockey Widow, you're absolutely right about the Kings looking well-coached and playing consistently within their system. Two things the Canucks should be doing, but cannot. Kesler looks back on track, and thank God for that, and Henrik's trying, but ultimately no one sees each other well enough, no ...

Re: GDT - R1G2 - Canucks vs Kings 7PM PST CBC

Our own powerplay killed us. Without it, it would at least be a tie game. Score a goal on just one PP, and we win the game. AV throws the lines in a blender and nothing comes out of it except individual skill. I'm seeing a spark here and there, but now they are in a serious hole. Heading to L.A. and...

Re: GDT - R1G2 - Canucks vs Kings 7PM PST CBC

I'm not one to be negative or panicky either, but looks like a few of us notice the Canucks' play looks a little weird and disjointed. The PP is unbelievably bad, and sucks the confidence right out of the group. I think Newell Brown needs a kick in the balls. Maybe one for Bowness simply because our...

Re: GDT - R1G2 - Canucks vs Kings 7PM PST CBC

If indeed there was a strategy throughout the year to coast a little bit and rest up for the playoffs, I think it's backfiring. The idea of being in the playoffs seems to be weighing on them -- too much thinking and hesitation, not enough attacking. The teamwork is lousy -- meanwhile, the Kings are ...

Re: GDT - R1G2 - Canucks vs Kings 7PM PST CBC

Good luck, Tant -- hope the worst of it passes you by. Me, I'm nervous as fuck for this game. Drinking a nice French Pinot Noir, 2008 (not up to Dude's standards, I'm sure), and soaking up some sun on our deck before the game starts. Lucky to have a decent view of the ocean and Dallas Road. That'll ...

Re: GDT: R1G1 - Canucks host Kings - 7:30

I think my biggest concern was not as much with the forwards (though I mostly agree with what people have said about Kesler, Raymond, etc), but with our defensemen. On too many shifts they crumbled under the heavy forecheck of the Kings, took too long (as usual) to make the outlet pass, and generall...

Re: GDT: R1G1 - Canucks host Kings - 7:30

Glad I remembered to check in before the game - almost started this year's playoffs without Donny's poem, the update on Spooner's cat and Dude's choice of vintage for the night. Good traditions, all. Sad world when you can't keep Blob in decent drugs, though. I've got a glass of Sea Cider's Wassail ...

Re: GDT - Canucks vs Flames 6PM PST SNET

Wow. You'll pardon me if I don't bother "giving my head a shake" at your command. Hey stoneboat Don't worry, Farhan, I lurked on CC for years and posted there a lot more frequently than I do here, so I know the score. Most posters are quite familiar to me. I'm not insanely knowledgeable, as you say...

Re: GDT - Canucks vs Flames 6PM PST SNET

No worries -- I should have figured that one out. Yeah, we stunk out the last two games of last season as well, so there's no need to panic by any means. I'm not really worried, though I do wonder about the PP, and I always think the 4th liners should be more worried about job security, since that's...
