Re: 11/12 Training Camp Thread

Rome's injury bodes well for Ballard to make the top 6. I believe Tanev will play himself onto the top 6, or at a minimum, be our #7 guy. Still, we are only 1 more injury, and Alberts or Ballard returning to the bad form they are capable of before we are starting another round of AHL call-ups on de...

Re: Gaglardi buys Dallas

Gaglardi seems like a very genuine hockey fan. How deep are his pockets ? That is the better question. How many years of losses before he packs it in ? Although I suppose Dallas isn't the worst market in the world. Back from summer vacation ! "On the first day of my summer vacation, I woke up. Then...

Re: Cap Floor & Mr Ballard

He was also in the lineup for that game 7 heart stopper against Chicago *and* the series clincher against San Jose. You'd think at some point between A & B he would have earned himself a regular roster spot. Instead he was yanked in & out of the lineup like a yo-you before getting a long stretch on...

Re: The Great Depression: Anyone else still feeling down?

Down ? I forgot about it long ago.

2012 ? Well, we have a as good a chance as any other team of winning in 2012. And probably a much better chance than most.

Depression is if Toronto wins. That is a really depressing thought.

Re: Farhan's $0.02: Playoffs, Kesler, Lapierre, moving fowar

I suppose the twins and Luongo will always be scapegoats in any playoff loss. Whether it is an individual game or a series. It goes with the territory. And somehow Kesler is the boy wonder. He had one phenomenal series against Nashville, a very good (defensive) series against Chicago and was hurt ag...

Re: Hansen goes to Arbitration

and if your MG.. look at Hansens playoff stats .. best +/- forward on the team.. game winning goals. Solid physical play . compare to Raymond and pay 1.7 mill :) Hansen is well worth $1.7M as far as I am concerned. We will pay what we need to pay to keep him. He has eventual offensive upside potent...

Re: Rockheads logic.

The Canucks are somewhat soft. During the regular season the skill they put out draws penalties or the threat of penalties. This gives them room to operate and score. During the playoffs the line is blurred , heavily. Whats a penalty one game is a free ride the next. I don't know. At some point it ...

Re: R4G7 - Game 7 - Wednesday - 7pm

I think our team had more talent (healthy), but Boston played better. Beat by better depth again. Losing Hamhuis, Samuellson, Rome hurt and Kesler was ineffective. With Chara and Seidenberg doing a number on the sedins, we were owned by the bruins lines 2-4. Our PP and PK sucked in this round too. M...

Re: "Bruins Hockey"

How about we play Canuck hockey. That has been pretty good this year. We're at our best when we skate hard, and hit. And getting a good bounce here and there would help too. We are also VERY good at keeping focussed whether or not we're down a goal or two. Would like to see a good game from the Kesl...

Re: Cory in?

Farhan's advice: Go with Luongo for Games 5, 6, and 7 if necessary. Luongo can't be blamed for the Canucks' scoring woes and shitty power play. I don't think he deserves ALL of the blame, but he certainly deserves some of the blame. He has to make some of those saves in the 2nd period of game 3 and...

Re: 13th Win by #13

Been a valuable asset all year.. Hansen/Torres/Maholtra might be the best 3rd line in hockey.. Torres is due for a small raise.. Same with Hansen. Looks like AV had Kesler out with Hansen/Torres - Brilliant !! or was the goal scored in middle of a line change? Was a line change. While Torres might ...

Re: Campbell steps down

Time for Colin to go. Still, how much of what will be his legacy was self-determined, we might not know until he writes his book. I think he was a bit of a puppet. And as for his inconsistencies, there were many. But some were predictably inconsistent. 1. Stars got different treatment. Inconsistent...

Re: R4G1 - Canucks host Bruins - 5pm

I mean he was just the guy to tap it in. No need to take his big moment down a peg, but of our forwards, he's at or near (game to game changes, but over a stretch) the bottom of the list. We have better third liners like Hansen in my opinion. He was in the right position to tap it in. When the play...

Christ enough with the hitting... :lol: OK OK OK. Get in on the forecheck QUICKLY be using our team speed (and while your there, you might as well hit someone). And even though the Bruins haven't been great on the PP, I think we need to stay out of the penalty box. Taking 5 penalties in the first a...
