Re: Breaking down the SJ series: what was learned?

I think having a defense corps with no true shutdown pairing (Huskins, really?) and a middling range goaltender would warrant some consideration to why San Jose were unable to win that series, I really hate hearing the "mentally fragile" thing, as if we can see inside their heads, there's only two t...

Re: R1G1 - Canucks host Hawks - 7pm - CBC

Man is it fantastic to be watching the game and not be looking to see if the Toews line out against a D pairing other than our "shut down" pair. It doesn't matter who's out there we're in good shape defensively. Luongo was HUGE and I though AV did a pretty good job of rolling our lines vs Chicago wh...

Re: Tanev

Not to excuse the hit, but it seemed like a bad move on Tanev's part, I watched it live and the replays right after and could only shake my head at what he's thinking. It looks like he fakes going to continue towards the back of the net then quickly turns to the corner, all the while his head down a...

Re: Just another legal hit...

I'm less sure hitting will remain, it's easy to talk about "head shots" and concussions, but take that Burrows "hit" on was it Fiddler(?) when they played Phoenix, Bradley from Washington hit a Dman from Ottawa at the bottom of the cirle and got a boarding penalty! I don't know who it was that hit G...

Re: In-Game Thread: Canucks vs Ottawa

I hate those after fit hits, especially hits like that. It was a clean hit, he didn't run 40ft to turf him in the boards and didn't drive any elbows into his head or leave his feet, and I didn't notice him running around trying to mow down our other star players the rest of the game. I get it if it'...

Re: GDT: Kings at Canucks - 40th Season Opener

I gotta say I LOVE our third and fourth lines! Its nice to be able to hear when their on the ice, and they are hits that acutally affect the play, not a Hordichuk "too slow to get there" type of hit! With enough sense to actually cycle it down low a bit and get it to the front. Hansen looked pretty ...

Re: GDT: Canucks host Calgary - 7pm - Snet

I like seeing the size of Alberts out there, he's had some down moments, but for a guy his size he doesn't seem like he's slower than most guys out there and he's not afraid to use his size. I find his speed allows him to be more physical when it actually can make a difference, SOB seems to be one o...

Re: Sedins

I seem to remember an interview with them (maybe after hours? I'm really not sure...), but they said when one got thrown out of the faceoff circle they would kind of circle each other and talk and the same guy would go into the circle to take the faceoff again! I could actually see it with all the a...

Re: Grabner called up

After watching the game live last night, I think I'd rather see Shirokov then Grabner. I believe he was on for both goals against last night, but more than that he just seemed to labour to get his but back on any kind of backcheck all night long, yet if there was an offensive type rush he seemed to ...

Re: Daniel Out 4-6 weeks. Broken foot

To be fair he (Grabner) has lit it up in the Peg for the start of the season, at least he didn't pout and sulk when he got sent down so I don't have a problem letting him have a shot, he's on a current three goal game streak. That being said Shirokov has 4 points in 3 games as well (or something lik...

Re: Kronwall Hit

So star players should be able to drop their heads into their feet and skate across the middle of the ice dangling the puck with no worries or consequences? I think that's a GREAT hit, soon we'll have wingers pretending like their going to pick up the puck to draw the hit and then let it pass by the...

Re: GDT: R2G3 - Canucks in Chi-town - 5pm | CBC, VS

Kinda hoping it rains here in E-town so I can stay and watch live, but thankfully I'm living in the era of PVR, just have to threaten to castrate anyone who gets the score on their cell phone and spills the beans... I was expecting more of a rough series from our part at least, not until the end of ...

Re: GDT: On the Road @ Phoenix - 7PM - CBC, NHLN (US) | 3/21

Actually I thought the boys didn't play too badly, we had control in their end for minutes on end working the puck around, we just couldn't finish. I thought that loss could've almost be blamed on the coach, I watched the Sedins work the puck around the Pheonix zone for a solid minute or more, but w...
