I am sad, I open myself and share my feelings and I get ripped like this.

Sigh

But the main point was the fact that when we were young, before the internet (at least high speed), we had balls and just shook it off and continued to play.

Hey Mick post something silly so they go after you again.

Don't worry Reef- why it was only yesterday, Blobby was accused of gluing pubes to his skull to hid the bald spot. It all goes 'round.

On deck.... Mick - for posting tons of images and links with no description... :bang:

I'll try and help.

How could Ganger be any worse than Eriksson? I mean the guy doesnt even need a stick out there.

With friends like this ... its best to have a sense of humour.

Fortunately, they're easily distracted.

Well, ... maybe not easily enough. :lol:

Does it seem like we have problems maintaining pressure in the offensive zone? Also of note, first pass out of our zone is usually pretty bad. Which I mean is what we were all expecting.

Still excited to hit the Jackpot.

We definitely have a pretty slow defense that fumbles and bobbles pucks in our own end. Fortunately reinforcements are coming

Juolevi and Hughes should help tremendously on the outlet pass, mind you, gotta have someone to pass to.
We do get scrambling in our own end too much. That has to change or the scouting book on us will be out, if it isn't already, and that just makes it worse.
I do see some improvement this year but still need more work on a five man unit defensively.
I have been pleasantly surprised with Jake in the D-zone. That speed shows well.

It does and it is.

Seeing a great pass out of the D-zone (like Pouliot’s to Bo last night) really contrasts with the not-so-good passing we usually get to see exiting the D-Zone. Would be nice if Pouliot could replicate the former on a regular basis.

I am excited about those 2 as well. What I'm not excited for is the lack of goals if we don't figure out how to establish time and pressure in the opponents end. We are not gonna score on the rush 4-5 times a game all season long.

Over all I am enjoying the games though. It's nice to have hope for the future.

Pettersson's skill is entertaining. More kids are on the way.

This season's Canucks have shown more speed, sand, face-off wins, & defensive support from the forwards (our D needs all the help it can get). The loss of Beagle has hurt all these areas (he is missed). He is also a good role model for the kids.

Things are more interesting than last year.

Man, what is this guy trying to do? Trying to make me lose more sleep?

Attention hungry or a realistic concern?

I respect his expertise but he is only looking at a video replay while the team doctor has first hand xrays and physical exam.

HW what's going on with Pettersson!?
