Re: GDT: Oct 29: Canucks host Washington - 7pm - CBC

Finally. Right from the start, the team looked more alive than they have at any time so far this year. The offense was creative, not 2-dimensional. They created off the rush, and they setup and executed after gaining the zone. The forecheck was outstanding, with multiple turnovers being generated an...

Re: GDT: Oct 29: Canucks host Washington - 7pm - CBC

And finally some saves would be great. Neither goalie has really won us a game this season and both have let us down with some crappy goals. Care to elaborate on some of those crappy goals that Schneider has let in? I can only think of one that may fit the bill, 2nd goal against St. Louis.....and t...

Re: GDT: Oct 29: Canucks host Washington - 7pm - CBC

Luongo will stand on his head tonight against Ovechkin & Co. Everyone will think things are going to be alright, but I remind you, Louie always shows up against the big teams, and always looks good when facing the best. He just shits the bed against average teams with middle of the road skill.....or...

Schneider was good in the loss.....again. He's free and clear on the third goal, the second goal looked to me like it was tipped right in front of him, though I'm not sure and haven't seen a clear replay of it, but it was about 2 feet off the ice coming in and then suddenly went over his right shoul...

Re: This team needs more Scandinavians!

Even though you are being tongue-in-cheek here, but you can take that tongue and stick in somewhere else..... :twisted: ;) Samuelsson is gone btw.....good riddance too. BTW, do they fill 3 lanes on the rush in Scandanavian hockey? Or is it always a circle jerk along the boards with no second shot op...

Panic button time yet anyone? :look: Ok. No. It's not, and I know it. When does this start to become a coaching issue? We have now scored goals 32 in the last 17 games with our regular roster. Not too many teams are winning many games while sporting a 1.88 goals/game average. I'm starting to think t...

Re: GDT: Canucks@Oilers Oct 25, 2011, 6:30pm, SPac, 1040

I don't think the Sedins have ever been all that great defensively, at least not in their own end. They generally don't end up out there having to shut down another team's top line, when they are head-to-head against the opposing team's big guns, they often appear to shut them down because they con...

Re: Farhan's $0.02: Luongo, "America's Team", other thought

Last year they hadnt just lost the final in Game seven and hadn't watched Luongo get ventilated left and right by the Bruins. That makes it three playoffs in a row where Luongo has been torched and hasnt lived up to his billing. At this point, if nothing changes and the Canucks enter the playoffs a...

A few comments; When Luongo was pulled, I was looking for AV to call a time out instead to regroup the troops. Instead the goalie change to waken up the forwards and defenders that there are two aspects to the game. However, the play of Schneider in relief highlighted there are serious issues with ...

Re: GDT: Canucks@Oilers Oct 25, 2011, 6:30pm, SPac, 1040

Saw the goals finally. I tuned in the TEAM for the third..... Goal 1 was saveable. At least most goalies seem to make that save on us.....a guy like Eberle loads up for a wrist shot, chances are pretty damn good that it's gonna be up off the ice, more likely upper half of the net. So how does Louie ...

Re: GDT: Canucks@Oilers Oct 25, 2011, 6:30pm, SPac, 1040

If we do lose this one I won't be pinning it on Luongo. That first goal by Eberle was a laser and the team collapsed for a spell after that. Only the second goal can be attributed to Lu. The 3rd goal was just a clusterfuck, that one hurt. Unfortunately, it seems when Lu lets in one, he lets in thre...

1st goal against is all on Hodgson - weak play along the boards in his own zone allowed the pass. S_C While Hodgson should have played that a bit harder and not allowed that pass Manny shares the blame IMO. He had a fantastic opportunity to break out strong and had his pass picked off. Manny has be...
