Re: GDT - Feb 7, 2012 at Nashville 5PM SNET-P

So far, the Preds are showing that they're a pretty good team. The first period was an anomaly, the bounces started working for them instead of against them the last two periods. OT's gonna be interesting =) I'm a huge fan of Salo but they pan-ed the camera on him after that defensive sprint; man, ...

Re: GDT - Feb 7, 2012 at Nashville 5PM SNET-P

How bad does that look on Malhotra when he is beaten to a puck in our end by Wilson after having almost a full zone headstart. Then he falls in the corner and the puck ends up on a Predator's stick who is all alone and in a great shooting position. I don't care about his faceoff percentage, we could...

Re: Ginger VS Bobby Luo

I think that the value of both our goalies is about equal.....depending, that is, on which team and GM you approach with said trade. If you approached a team like Tampa, then Luongo is going to bring you the biggest return because they have a goaltender who is due to retire very soon and nobody wait...

You must have missed the game in Montreal.

Re: GDT Feb 2: Wings @ Vancouver: Sportsnet at 7PM

If you are thinking that the Canucks went balls to the wall last season in order to finish first overall and gain the momentum and homeice only to see key injuries at the worst times and physical exhaustion two games too soon, and you think the Canucks subconsciously at least are holding something ...

Re: Ginger VS Bobby Luo

Cam Ward, although brilliant last night, may have played his best hockey at the start of his career when he won the Conn Smythe and the Cup with the Canes. There's something to be said for youth and ignorance. Not to say that a young goalie is really ignorant of the pressures of the game, but he's ...

Re: GDT Feb 2: Wings @ Vancouver: Sportsnet at 7PM

Terrible effort by Vancouver tonight. Our blueline is a shambles right now. In the last 2 games there have been at least a dozen incidents where an attacking forward has danced right around the Canuck defenseman and gone in for a chance on net. If it was once or twice and Datsuyk or Patrick Kane, w...

Re: GDT Feb 2: Wings @ Vancouver: Sportsnet at 7PM

Ya know, as much as the Red Wing's were full marks for the 2 points.....the refs didn't have to go out of their way to HELP them! Apart from the interference calls that went unseen, Henrik played almost his entire last shift trying to free his stick from a Detroit player's hands. The linesman nullif...

Re: Trade Deadline Discussion

On a brighter note, how about Ryan Smyth. He's a UFA at the end of the season would Tamberlini do it...go on Tambo...double dare :D ..............Would Ryan play for Vcr :D Why would we want him to? He's slow, an average passer, a below average stickhandler, not going to add physical toughness so f...

Re: Trade Deadline Discussion

Like dbr points out, Schneider is getting big game starts, more starts than last year and if he gets a few games in the playoffs and the Canucks win, he may not want to move if he's assured he will get about 30 starts a year and a few in playoffs with a chance of taking over the top job in Luongo s...

Re: Trade Deadline Discussion

Please tell me that people are being sarcastic when considering Bernier. The guy was a total bust in this system a few years ago. He has hands of stone and can't skate in the new NHL. He's also just another "big guy" who won't use his size effectively.....much like Taylor Pyatt.

Re: GDT Jan 31: Blah Caulks @ Vancouver: TSN at 7PM

Hodgson is quickly becoming our other goto guy in clutch situations. He has given the team some serious lift in big, close games over the last month. Whether that be in the shootout, scoring the tying or winning goal, or making a nice play to setup a teammate. He's just getting it done. How can you ...

Re: GDT: Oil vs Nucks - 7pm - SNETP

I disagree with everything you say, regarding Booth. The guy who is famously known for being shitty defensively isn't all of a sudden gonna learn how to play defense since arriving upon these shores, you either like playing defense or you don't. Booth is at a complete lost defensively. I wouldn't s...
