Re: The Hockey News predicts Canucks to win it all

I wouldn't be too quick to make that assessment. The NW Division isn't what it used to be but take the Oil, Avs, and Wild too lightly and they'll make you pay. I take them lightly in that they're inferior competition. We could well lose to them, but if we're ready to play most nights , we're going ...

Re: GDT: Canucks host Canes - 6pm - Snet

sadly this is the attitude that gets us into trouble goalie-wise. You don't not start Schneider because he might lose, you challenge him to step it up. If the team takes a loss, then they take a loss. Playing Lu in back to back games is silly, but could be what AV might do, using your logic. Lu isn...

Re: The Next 'C' - Vote for your choice.

Paraphrasing from another former NHLer but the captaincy loses it's meaning when management picks them rather than the players voting. I like Kesler as captain because he plays with an edge and is more like a Mike Richards-type captain but I can't fault the team's logic for picking Henrik. I think a...

Re: GDT: Canucks host Canes - 6pm - Snet

I bet Schneider makes his first start with back-to-back MIN/CHI coming up. Fully expecting Luongo to play both games. You can't bench him against Minny because they're a division rival and you benching him against the Hawks is like showing a sign of fear. Plus with Luongo's competitiveness you want ...

Re: Hordichuk traded for Andrew Peters

I, for one, am kinda glad that Hordi's gone. I like the guy but I think players like him are a dying breed. I'm a little disappointed we got another goon who can't scrap (ask Rob Ray) in return instead of a low draft pick (but it's Florida, they're going to hoard them for the next 2-3 years). Hordi'...

Re: Ballard Out With Concussion

If they have no intention of putting him in the lineup, then what's the point of sitting him in the pressbox every game? If he's not good enough or ready enough to play here, then send him to the minors and let him play and develop there. I believe Parent has to clear waivers. With the Canucks' aff...

Re: THE TORONTO MAPLE Leaves

Ya, no. Gee I wonder if he's regretting not signing w/ the Canucks after Nonis got fired now. Does Brunnstrom count Sedins while trying to sleep? He's on a one year 675K deal. We definitely need a skilled forward for a couple months. That's for sure. He might be a pass, I agree, but keep your eyes ...

Re: WHERE do the Canucks go from here? List your strategies

Coburn won't accept being regulated as a seventh defenseman. He is a top four defenseman. I wouldn't mind seeing RJ back if he came cheaper, perhaps closer to the league minimum at 900k (?). I don't think Hodgson will start on the PK considering Vigneault's reluctance to use rookies but he will be i...

Re: Luongo

Luongo didn't cost us the series or the game, BUT he has to seriously re-evaluate what he did this year. Equipment? Technique? Injury? He was not the goalie we signed and were so excited about when he got here. Why was he dropping his stick so much? Going down so often? He needs to get together wit...

Re: Playoff break down

After listen to Lou post game comments you could tell in his voice he has had enough and is looking for some kind of change.. I'm not saying he wants to be traded but he looked like he felt he was left to hang out to dry. Luongo's post-game comments were a major annoyance to me as well. I agree, I ...

Re: Farhan's $0.02 - Should Canuck fans really be upset?

We shouldn't be pissed because we lost. I'm not pissed because we lost. I'm pissed because I know this team could've played better. I'm pissed at HOW we lost.

Re: WHERE do the Canucks go from here? List your strategies

For me - the following players are gonzo -Demitra (too expensive) -Mitchell (career in jeopardy) -Johnson (no longer effective in his given role) -O'Brien (via trade: he has some great qualities but he's too much of a drama queen in my opinion...too much maintenance. I am also not fond of his lack ...

Fan salute

There was no fan salute after the game. I don't care if you win or lose a series, the fans deserve a salute. There were hundreds of bandwagoners and pissed off fans who left early. The salute's not for them. The salute's for the ones that stayed with the team all-year long. If 18,809 walked out befo...
