Re: GDT: R1G3 - Canucks @ Hawks - 5pm -CBC, VS

This is going to be one feisty game, with two referees that are known to call it tight. We should see plenty of special teams play (advantage Canucks).

I'm guessing 3-2 Hawks in overtime. I'm usually wrong, luckily.

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Avs - 5pm Snet

5 games in 7 days, here's hoping we can maintain our momentum, and health, through this busy stretch. Mason Raymond is back tonight, starting on the 4th line for the time being. Volpatti is in the press box. Avs haven't been getting great goaltending, and Liles has come back to earth. 3-2 Canucks in...

Re: Should the Canucks go after Brian Rolston? (on waivers)

I remember when Rolston was a sought after free agent a few years back, and many fans and journos thought he'd be a good fit on the Canucks forward lines. Alas, Rolston stated at the time he wanted to stay on the East Coast for family's sake, and the Devils offered him 4 years (!) to seal the deal. ...

Re: Salo's imminent return

I truly believe GMMG and the Canucks brass value defensive depth over most anything else, especially after being burned badly twice in the last 4 seasons when key defensemen got injured late in the regular season. That said, with Alberts and Rome proving to be serviceable 7th and 8th d-men this year...

Re: Who likes the Ballard deal now?

Grabner = Tambellini. And I like the local Canadian boy with family ties to the Canucks organization vs. Austrian wildcard tradeoff. Ballard was solid last night vs. the Avalanche. One of the great things about watching the games live (I'm a partial season ticket holder) is watching full shifts of c...

Wow, what a great read, Cornuck! Thanks for sharing. Love reading about the pre-NHL history of hockey in Vancouver.

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Montreal - 4:30pm - Snet-P

Our goaltending is fine, Toucan. Maybe Luongo is overpaid, but goalies are worth less on the market than they were 2 years ago. I'd put our goaltending combo equal to anyone in the league, along with Boston and maybe Los Angeles. The Habs have lots of jump tonight, and it always amazes me how much t...

Re: When HODGSON comes up, should he play with the twins?

First of all, its so nice to be having a discussion like this, with all three lines humming along and talent like Hodgson, Schroeder, and Shirokov chomping at the bit in Manitoba. I think the Sedins are the kind of players that don't really need a guy like Burrows driving the net. They worked well f...

Great stuff Cornuck! Nothing appropriate on CDC and the ones on this site are better quality anyhow. Thanks!

Re: R1G3 - Canucks @ LA - 7pm - CBC, VS

Calling off that goal is INSANE. Since when did the the puck changing direction factor into the equation? I heard Mike Murphy explain the ruling afterwards on CBC....he said there was "intent" on Daniel's part....I don't remember that being part of the rule either? In FACT intentional "redirecting"...

LOL Cornuck. Hard to have a "Blackout" when there is 4000 Canucks fans to colour the proceedings!

Re: R1G3 - Canucks @ LA - 7pm - CBC, VS

I couldn't be happier with the tone the Canucks are setting tonight, so far in the first period. Clune and Smyth rocked by good clean hits, the Canucks are being physical and assertive, and are using their speedy forwards to unsettle the Kings defensemen on the forecheck. I cannot see the Canucks lo...

Re: Hansen, UFA

I'm not sure Glass belongs on your list of players who haven't stepped up this year. At least he has more than a few goals (5 so far), should end up with well over 100 PIMs (mostly from fights) and he's a plus 8. I kind of like him. It may be a stretch playing him on the 3rd line, but he's more tha...

Re: Trivia tidbit

Yes, Baumgartner.

The Canucks only dressed 6 defenseman today, so Baumer got 22 minutes. He must be as happy as a pig in shit, I heard the interview when he was called up last month, his first ticket to the show in 3 years, he realizes it is his last chance and has embraced it!
