Re: First round playoff match up - LA Kings

Other than Malhotra, we were healthy going into the playoffs last year. In our last game against Calgary last year, Regher threw a vicious crosscheck into Hank's lower back/ribs. Henrik battled through that injury for 4 rounds of playoff hockey. There were a few players who were less than a 100%. T...

Re: OOTS

i guess they should have went 10 - 0 .... fucking bums. The time will come where this team stinks for a period of time. As someone who has followed this reliously since 77 as a 7 year old I remember some very dark times. Does the Albert chant mean anything to most posters here ???? And i aint talki...

Re: Nucks Playoff Bracket

did the hawks beat the dogs while loosing to the preds as well......... What are the chances of that? Well no wonder they lost in the 2nd round.....what team could play 2 first round series and then hope to challenge in the semi-finals? I'm saying the Cup ends up in Nashville this year. ROUND 1 Eas...

Re: The Playoff Picture

To me the playoffs start tonight. One game for top spot in the West, maybe top spot overall. This game means something dam it. It means something to the owner who allows MG to spend to the cap and who pays salaries in the minors so we have depth. It means something to all the fans who buy the ticke...

Re: First round playoff match up - LA Kings

Anyone see Richards' hit on Couture? Shades of Claude Lemieux. I'm not sure how Rome's hit (coming less than a second late) is worthy of a 4 game suspension in the Stanley Cup Finals, but that blatant hit from behind that drives a vulnerable player head first into the boards only merits a 2 minute p...

Re: First round playoff match up - LA Kings

This is NOT a matchup that I'm happy about. LA has goaltending, size, shooters, goaltending, defense, and did I mention goaltending? Sutter is a halfway decent coach, and he couldn't benchboss a goal scoring team with Lemieux, Sakic, Yzerman, and Gretzky down the middle. But he can coach playoff hoc...

Re: GDT - Canucks vs Oilers 7PM PST HNIC

Lucky for Booth that he flubbed/fanned on that shot, otherwise that wasn't going in. Do you seriously think that Booth fanned on the shot or are you simply refusing to accept the reality? Booth made two nice moves to score the goal and you still have to pick on him... How about Pahlsson? It must be...

Re: GDT - Canucks vs Oilers 7PM PST HNIC

If Louie lets in a softie in the first 5 minutes, Vigneault had better give him the hook right then and there. Don't sink the team by leaving him in to screw us out of a second consecutive PT. This isn't the Stanley Cup, but when we can be only the 5th team to win the PT in back-to-back years.....we...

Re: Predictions for 2011-12

16. Luongo finally gets his ring, Vancouver gets their banner and their parade, 41 years of sadness come to a close. Still hoping here. 17. Kesler wins his second Selke and the Messier leadership award. Luongo gets his Vezina, Burrows owns the Conn Smythe (5 game winners including 2 game 7's), Gill...

Re: Predictions for 2011-12

11. The room feels the shake up and the New Year shows a new team. No shake up, but the team put it together in late November and climbed from 10th to 1st in the West, then found ways to win despite scoring woes and inconsistent play. 12. Luongo plays like a top 20-goalie for January and then has p...

Re: Predictions for 2011-12

6. Sedins struggle out of the gate as teams play them physical and take liberties because they aren't afraid of our struggling powerplay. Both on pace for a 75 point season and speculators continue to speculate. Burrows sticks with the top line by being on pace for 70 points, albeit with a good num...

Re: Predictions for 2011-12

Meds 20 predictions. In chronological order..... 1. Luongo starts out like a man possessed and silences all critics by the end of November with Vezina talk already brewing by Thanksgiving. Epic fail. 2. Ballard makes good use of his extra minutes and sends a gift basket of mini-muffins to the greed...

Re: The Playoff Picture

When I watch LA play it always seems like they are satisfied just keeping the puck deep in the offensive zone and any scoring chances are a bonus. Their d never really pinch and their centre plays so high that LA almost has 3 point men and very few odd man rushes against. LA is so focused on minimi...
