we are the most winning team in the game for the last about 18 months... so, yeah, I guess we are overrated.

Well, obviously skill had nothing to do with it... :roll:

I don't know where to put this so I'll stick it up Royaldu...errr..in Royaldudes thread.

( :D Howsit RD?)

Practice lines today included Raymond with the twins and Burr with Pahlsson and Hansen.

The other two lines remain the same.

Defense?

I believe it was..

Edler Bieksa

Gragnani Salo

Hamhuis Tanev

...(heard the D as I was leaving the room so I may be off a bit there)

Twins getting mugged lately so lets put Mason with them?

That should work.

First practice after two days off so maybe a slap in the jowls wake up call and a one off only?

And IN THE PLAYOFFS....

call me old-fashioned but I'm all in favour of the 3rd & 4th lines focussing on shutdown.

Course you then need your top 2 lines to focus on scoring, which is what The Plan apparently is.

You know as well as I that the AMEX line is going to do some scoring in the playoffs.

But hey, offense schmoffense IN THE PLAYOFFS wot y'wanna do is just WIN BABY. :mex:
by the looks of things,the canucks are going for the defense-first approach this post-season.With the inconsistent calls we've witnessed it's obvious the "we'll make them pay on our power-play"strategy is out the door in favour of the defensive shut-down game,and like doc sez..........wot y'wanna do is just WIN BABY

Gold, one of my favourites. Thank cripes I ain't the GM, just a fan. The brilliance of Gillis rivals the brilliance of Chiarelli.

Buyout Ballard cost us two first round picks (one was Grabner) and a 2nd round pick and a 3rd round pick ((what Gillis paid for Bernier). One of the worst cases of piss poor asset management in canuck history

Speaking of Shutdown Hockey, Troy Leier and Josh Anderson are having great careers. The two assets we gave up for two months of Shutwdown Pahlsson. Nuckles loves 4th round picks
