Re: OOTS 11/12 playoff edition

At least the 3 day break in our series means that the Canucks won't be the first team facing prospect of elimination in a game 5 situation. I think Pittsburgh and Chicago are both done. Philly is going to come back HARD after being embarassed like that at home and that 5th game in Pittsburgh will be...

Re: Game 5 playoff elimination - Luo or Ginger?

Say what you want, but Lou had the equivilant of the Maple Leaves playing in front of him for his games and Ginger got the real Canucks. I'm just glad they finally decided to show up. Completely and totally agree.........BUT.......perhaps there is an underlying psychological reasoning for this? Per...

Re: Game 5 playoff elimination - Luo or Ginger?

Bottom line: The team got it together and Schneider should have 2 wins in his pocket returning home from LA, it was an unlucky goal that put us away in game 3. Well, unlucky and stupid on the part of Edler who was nowhere to be found in games 1through 3. In front of Luongo the team played a scattere...

Whats our vector Victor?
Sorry Tops, I don't get the "Ol' Larry" reference.

Would you care to dispute that momentum has to go somewhere and when there is so much as an inkling of upward direction it will carry through in that way?

Re: Hossa Hit

I just saw the Torres hit on Hossa, and apart from the fact that Torres was moving faster, that hit was no different than Brown's hit on Henrik. Everyone is raging about how Torres left his feet on that hit and jumped for Hossa's head, well you know what? Almost every player leaves their feet when t...

Re: GDT: Game 3 Vancouver @ LA Kings - April 15 7:30pm - CBC

Holy crap you guys can get annoying. You've argued so hard against ol' Larry here that you've gone all the way past Quick's been "ok" to he's actually not that good. However you want to look at it, the bottom line is he hasn't let much in. Some of his saves have been very good, some have just been ...

Re: Quick is NOT stealing this series for LA

Re: Quick is NOT stealing this series for LA I want to go on record as saying that I do NOT agree with the notion that Quick is stealing the series for LA right now. He is not. Just as was the case with Tim Thomas from Games 3 and onwards, the Canucks are making Quick to look MUCH better than he ac...

Re: GDT: Game 3 Vancouver @ LA Kings - April 15 7:30pm - CBC

I'm really sick of hearing about how we played "our game" and the "puck possession" was in our favor but [insert goaltender's name] had the answer. That's bullshit. Quick made next to no saves that were from real scoring spots on the ice. I would venture to say that 75% of the shots he faced were fr...

Re: GDT: Game 3 Vancouver @ LA Kings - April 15 7:30pm - CBC

The case could be made that we could easily up 2-1 but I won't make it. This is not the same team we were used to seeing up until the last 20 games or so. No offense, no power play, no second round. The only question now is who starts the next game. Agreed on all accounts. Canucks should be up 2-1 ...

Re: GDT: Game 3 Vancouver @ LA Kings - April 15 7:30pm - CBC

I put the goal on Edler for leaving Brown wide open. A Ginger can only do so much. Agreed. Speaking of Brown, what a player eh? He's definitely not the best player in the league but he damn sure knows how to "bring it" when it matters most. Ditto for Mike Richards. Outside of the San Jose series, c...

Re: GDT: Game 3 Vancouver @ LA Kings - April 15 7:30pm - CBC

It's an outright embarrassment as a fan to cheer for an organization that doesn't learn from the past. This game is all on Vigneault and his system, a couple players were stupid, and Edler stands out as being a train wreck, but when you control the flow of the play for 45 minutes of a game, and the ...

Re: GDT: Game 3 Vancouver @ LA Kings - April 15 7:30pm - CBC

The Canucks actually beat the Kings 5-on-5 in both games. 2-1 in game 1. 2-1 in game 2. If the Canucks start getting some real chances and shots on Quick rather than 45 shots from the outside with nobody around for a rebound (which Quick has been giving up plenty of), then this series will go back ...

Re: I would still like to see Kesler play with Hank on occas

Maybe I'm crazy for suggesting this, but I'd like to see the Canucks throw out.....Higgins-H.Sedin-Kesler.......for a few shifts, just to give the Kings a different look. No one is a better passer than Hank and no one is a bigger puck hog than Kesler. It's a tremendous fit in that sense, and I don'...

Re: GDT: Game 3 Vancouver @ LA Kings - April 15 7:30pm - CBC

No word from Tant lately? I hope when he crawls out from his storm shelter, the sun is shining, the house is in one piece and the Canucks have taken one back from the Kings. Still think they should have Lapierre on the first instead of Hansen -- not because I don't think Hansen is the better player...
