Re: GDT: Nov 8/11. Canucks @ Bruins. 4:00 pm SN

I was referring to an earlier Jake who would have several good chances, but rarely found the back of the net. Patience is paying dividends. Jake's play away from the puck is getting much better (it couldn't get much worse- Lennon and McCartney). Having Rousel and Schaller around as role models is h...

Re: GDT: Nov 8/11. Canucks @ Bruins. 4:00 pm SN

Quite enjoyable seeing the beantown beat-down. I find it a little curious though how Gaudette still hasn't found the back of the net, and tonight, he was set up point blank. I was inclined to think that a Hobey Baker award winner would put the numbers up; afterall, look at Gaudrea! But it's simply ...

Re: GDT: Nov 8/11. Canucks @ Bruins. 4:00 pm SN

Terrible game for Boston. Canucks down low weren't tied up, pucks that should have been cleared weren't, etc. But unlike past years, Canucks are capitalizing. 8 goals and a few Grade A chances for Gaudette and Granlund missed. 5 goals against, though, was not an accident. Markstrom was okay in this ...

Game Analysis:

The Canucks aren't very deep when 4 of the their top 5 players are out.

Re: Canucks @ Coyotes 7 pm. SNP

Goldobin makes some real stupid passes whe he’s pressured. He also can be quite crafty with the puck, sees the ice well. With Goldy there’s the good and bad but more importantly with players like that you have to cultivate his risky game cause that is his strong suit. I’m hoping as time goes on he ...

Re: Canucks @ Coyotes 7 pm. SNP

Del Zotto should have no trouble sticking in this lineup. I counted two guys back there who looked far shittier than he did tonight. Pouliott and Biega both looked the shits. Yeah a lot of these guys are getting ample ice time and doing fuck all with it. I liked Gaudette and Archibald out of the fr...

Shit... Is the Leipsic experiment done? He could not find a better time to fall... I've moved on from him since the end of last season lol The guy is like a weak version of Raymond, or Peter Schaefer, or Jordan Shroeder Mason Raymond was a top 6 forward on the best team in the league and didn't loo...

Not invested from the start. Horrid game. Piss poor skate out song. Techno-babble shit!!! Don't like that Anthem singer. She doesn't let the fans sing it right. :twisted: Wasn't "all" troy's fault, :drink: he wasn't the worst. Can't just say we lost to the best when we didn't even come close to try...

Re: Capitals @ Canucks 7:00PM

Brilliant penalty 44! Bravo! :mad: :lol: Is it just me or has he been massively exposed as a fuckin bogus asset this fall? I dont see anything whatsoever worthy of anything other than a league min contract for that kind of depth defenseman. Andrew Alberts the second I am not a Gudbrandson fan, but ...

Re: Goaltending

Once again, Marky Mark and Nilsson are not superstar goalies, but they are sort of league average goalies. It is not our weakest spot. I maintain that it is the blue line that is of greatest concern, and it's really no use taking on the cost of a top ten or even top three goalie if you are going to...

Let’s all join hands an sing Kumbaya, UW. I could give two shits if some think the hit was clean and btw, it wasn’t. The hit was personal to Matheson. The young lad was embarrassing him all night and went out of his way to get even. Real teams stuck up for one another. Green “2 points were on the l...

Re: Canucks @ Panthers 7:00 PM ET SN1, FS-F

Late last night, I spent a few minutes reading comments from Florida hockey boards. Even their HF board is almost obnoxiously polite. A very different hockey market there, to be sure. (relocation one day). Anyway, from their hockey fandom core, they are not pleased with Matheson, (the hit nary got ...

Re: Canucks @ Panthers 7:00 PM ET SN1, FS-F

I was thinking during the game how well Petterson was absorbing hits. He'd spin out of them, going with the force of the contact. It's the difference between driving over the center line and colliding vs. A lane change accident where cars are moving in the same direction. On this hit, he got the can...
