Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

While you may want to tell yourself your goalie's performance doesn't affect the rest of the team and how the game is played, I'll most respectfully and smirkingly disagree. You bought your ticket, so you can smirk if you want. However, the FACTS are on my side, not yours. What facts are those exac...

Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

The notion that Luongo is anything more than an average playoff goalie is pants-on-head retarded at this point. Is that, short-pants or regular-pants, retarded? An ELITE goalie, IMO, is a goalie who, at least once or twice a playoff, steals games for his team in which his team is being outplayed, o...

Re: Winter Classic - Time to screw the fans.

Why not schedule game for a cruise ship. High rollers can have dinner with Sid the not so Kid at the Captain's table. Merchandise to the captive audience. Florida and Tampa could do an entire playoff series and no one would notice the quality of the ice. This I would pay for. Imagine, being at a li...

Re: GDT: Oct 22: Canucks host the Wild - 1pm - SPac

The problem is Ballard's positioning, defensive reads and controlling the gap between him and the opposition's forwards in his own end. Those things can be badly exposed late in tight games and in the playoffs, and until Ballard improves that area of his game, he'll be a 14-17 minute player and wil...

Re: Winter Classic - Time to screw the fans.

Honestly I don't see the attraction to the winter classic. You sit a kilometer away from the playing surface, your freezing your own ass off, and you pay more for the gimmicky experience. If the NHL wants to be so deplorable with its ticket sales packages, and fans are still stupid enough to go for ...

Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

Lundqvist may not be the same goaltender that Louie WAS, but he is a better bet than Louie IS. He's also the highest paid goalie in hockey. They have similar career regular season numbers, slight edge to Lundqvist based on G/A... save % is identical. Is he worth 20% more in salary than Luongo? My g...

Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

My point is that the comparison is not fair. If Lundqvist were that good every night, then the Rangers would have a rafter full of recent Cup banners, and I'd want him instead of Lou. But Lundqvist ISN'T that good every night. In fact, he has a whopping total of 4 (four) playoff wins in the last 3 ...

Re: GDT: Oct 22: Canucks host the Wild - 1pm - SPac

Backstrom stood tall for Minnesota in this one and didn't have a chance on any of the goals. Even though I missed the first period it looked to me like we controlled the majority of the play this afternoon. In our end Schneider was solid as well, I thought he could possibly have had the first one, b...

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts

Btw, that clip of Richards freight-training Booth is pretty much a textbook case of the new rules. Chances are good that anyone who throws a hit like that this year will be sitting out for a long time.

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts

A few more things I really like about this trade..... 1. It gives Vigneault another solid option to put out with the Sedin's following a PK where Burrows is a bit gassed. 2. It gives our 2nd PP unit a nice boost while providing Gillis with a very diplomatic way of removing Samuelsson as an option fo...

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts

Will Booth just be the next name on the list of ex-Panters making $4+M/year that Vigneault doesn't like and sits on the bench? :roll: I'm pretty stoked on this trade actually, Samuelsson has been a bit of a lone wolf out there at times and has never found much lasting chemistry with anyone, often tu...

Re: GDT: Canucks vs Predators | Oct 20 @ 7pm | SNET-VAN, 104

I guess we'll now see if Shanahan is going to be the unbiased disciplinarian that his predecessor was not, or if he is going to give a star player a pass on what was a very dangerous, uncalled for, and somewhat late (for NHL's definition of late see Rome on Horton) hit from behind. My money is on We...

Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

Luongo needs a fresh start somewhere, maybe in Chicago playing for the Wolves. At this point, especially following games 6 and 7 against Boston, I would put him on Waivers to the AHL and be happy for the compensation if a team like Phoenix claimed him. Just the fact that we'd have his cap space cle...
