Re: Coach AV returns next year? Yes or No

There was an article by Thomas Drance over at Canuck's Army on April 16th entitled, "Does AV get out coached in the post season?": http://canucksarmy.com/page/5 The article concluded that he didn't, but I am not so sure. The "Panel" was talking about this on TSN tonight. None of them thought that AV...

Clem he also said they made too many mistakes, and he was absolutely right.

Come on Farhan, you are only a teenager in blog years. Don't disappear on the true Canuck fans.

Post game checklist: 1. Finally able to give Mason Raymond a 10 on a fly by....check 2. Lull them into a false sense of securtiy by giving up the first goal...check 3. Don’t tire yourself out in the first period...check 4. Score a powerplay goal when they take a dumb penalty...check 5. Score a lucky...

LOL And we haven't even gotten into Poisson statistics related to goal scoring! You want personal opinion? We got that here. You want some objectivity injected into the discussion? We got that too.

Re: Game 4 playoff elimination - Luongo or Schneider?

I still feel the same way about tonight’s game as I did before game 3. It doesn’t really matter who you start in net, its the guys up front that are going to win it or loose it. Having said that, I agree with people who think that you make your goalie decision based on whether you are deciding on wi...

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

Once again, poaching from Cam Charron over at Canucks Army from the last game: "9-13 the scoring chances in this one, in LA's favour." But Vancouver outshot LA 41 to 20 by the shot count. These kind of numbers do lend weight to the proposal that the shot count is not indicative of how much the Canuc...

Re: OOTS 11/12 playoff edition

That was 0.8 sec late?

I guess since its TSN we will have to take it as the gospel, and I bow to HW's superior peepers :)

Of course that would make it later than Rome's hit, which would mean that Rome can move faster than Torres. Maybe Rome's nickname should be "The Rocket."

Re: OOTS 11/12 playoff edition

On the views I have, it is hard to tell what part of Torres hits Hossa, and what part of Hossa is initially hit, ie I can't tell if it was his head or his upper chest, that was hit first, and whether it was a forearm or elbow or shoulder hitting him. Quennville claimed that it was charging. It looks...

Re: Kassian

I think part of the problem for Kassian is that there are rookies on other teams (like Philly) who are playing very well, and its hard not to expect Kassian to produce similar results.

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

If anyone is wondering about the shots on goal versus “scoring chances,” Cam Charron over at canucksarmy has been posting such stats for Vancouver for a long time. The Canucks may have had more shots on goal, but LA won the scoring chance battle. http://canucksarmy.com/ BROWN DOES IT ALL FOR KINGS -...

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

Some say you should never talk to or about your team until at least the day after a game. The Canucks played pretty well tonight overall and might have had a different fate but such is life. Did they play better because Schneider was in net, or because it was pretty much a must win game and they had...
