Re: GDT - Canucks vs Jets 7PM PST SNet

If Rome played defensively like Edler did last night, he would be under criticism today. But Edler always gets a pass. If Rome played offensively like Edler does ever, he'd probably get his share of free passes too. But he is just not that player.. So Rome and Edler get paid $750,000 for their equa...

Re: GDT - Canucks vs Jets 7PM PST SNet

Good game. Easily could have been a rout if not for some great goaltending by Pavlec and some real puck luck for the Jets. Crossbar, bouncing puck, into the goalie's glove through 4 players, that was all about bounces. That one save that Pavlec made where he snagged it out of the mess in front and G...

Re: What do you think of Don Cherry?

The thought of listening to Cherry, McLean, Oake, & Stock is not pleasant. Would prefer it if the Canucks sold their Saturday games to another network. The right to withhold my tax dollars from CBC would be nice as well. I think the CBC's broadcast contract is with the NHL and not Vancouver, althou...

Re: OOTS

So Montreal blew a 4-3 third period lead and gave Calgary 2 points. Toronto has lost Lupul for the next several weeks to a shoulder injury. I'd say they are in the tank now barring a Carlyle miracle. Sean Avery told he no longer needs to report to practices with the NYR's AHL affiliate the Conneticu...

Re: GDT - Canucks vs Stars 7PM PST SNet

Couldn't watch, had to work. Caught the second period, up to where Dallas tied it, on the radio. Very disappointing to see the Sedin's names NOT on the scoresheet again tonight. Even more discouraged to hear that their line was useless due to over-passing. I've been saying this for years, and always...

Re: BRIAN BURKE'S TORONTO MAPLE Leaves

You guys all forget that Booth is a dumb blonde. who has zero hockey IQ... I'd argue that.....well half of the time. Whenever Booth has the puck and a play needs to be made to setup another player, Booth is next to useless. When Booth has the puck and it needs to go to the net, he's useful. When Bo...

Re: Do we trade Schneider after the season?

I'm assuming you mean Sedin and Kesler may be on the block if the team flames out. No, I don't. I just mean that their names will be the subject of much debate and their leash will be very short next year if they completely disappear when the game is on the line. If management was taking wait and s...

Re: GDT - Canucks vs Stars 7PM PST SNet

Phoenix would be tough (and probably low-scoring boring games) LA makes me nervous if Quick brings his A game Phoenix has been a total dud in the post season the past 2 years. I agree on avoiding LA. Dallas or Pheonix are probably the best match upps. Agreed. Go to the net against both of those tea...

Re: Do we trade Schneider after the season?

As far as the rest of the roster is concerned, I think there is some huge pressure on both Kesler and the Sedin's. As much, if not more, as is on Luongo. There were three games in the SFC where even if Luongo had closed the door after 1 goal, the Canucks still would have lost.....one of those games ...

Re: Do we trade Schneider after the season?

If Roberto does leave, this team is far worse off. I would hate to be in the position of Chicago, or Philly, or Washington, or Tampa Bay, where goaltending is holding you back. You can have the reigning Conn Smythe and Norris winners, but without goaltending you sneak into the 8th seed like Chicago...

Re: Do we trade Schneider after the season?

People were all over him for that, and even worse, I think he really blamed himself for that one. His opening series against Dallas was the stuff of legend, and his play to that point had been so good I don't think people were all over him at all. Most of us realized that he was the only reason the...

Re: Do we trade Schneider after the season?

I'm exactly the same way. I am one of Luongo's biggest supporters, but Saturday it was clear something was wrong and I'd have pulled him after the 2nd goal. Had that happened, the Canucks might have won. I can't be claim the same as you when it comes to being one of his biggest supporters, but I do...

Re: Do we trade Schneider after the season?

When Schneider showed up as a regular on the team, Luongo had already had 2 playoff meltdowns against Chicago, and a really bad showing against Anaheim in his playoff debut. Excellent post overall Meds. I just have a question regarding your comment above. Are you honestly referring to Luongo's play...

Re: West vs. East

Of those top 30 scorers, 18 of them play for teams where the goaltending is unlikely to win many games when the offense falters. Philly, Tampa, Chicago, Toronto, NYI, SJ, and Anaheim, even Pittsburgh's MAF isn't what I would consider to be an elite goaltender..... none of them have what I would cons...

Re: Do we trade Schneider after the season?

I think that moving Hodgson might have been a way that GMMG was looking at when it came to keeping Schneider. I always felt it was going to be one or the other but never both. Luongo has alot to prove to himself, the fans, Vigneault, and Gillis when it comes to the playoffs. If I'm Gillis during the...
