Holy Crap Preseason Has Started - Sharks @ Canucks

7:00 pm PST on Rogers Sportsnet Pacific

The first game of the Canucks preseason schedule is tonight. Looks like Torts is giving the "kids" a chance to show what they can do. The Canucks lineup is expected to be as follows:

Alex Burrows - Ryan Kesler - Hunter Shinkaruk
Nicklas Jensen - Brendan Gaunce - Pascal Pelltier
Tom Sestito - Bo Horvat - Dale Weise
Darren Archinald - Kellan Lain - Zach Hamill

Dan Hamhuis - Frankie Corrado
Yannick Weber - Henrik Tommernes
Alex Biega - Andrew Alberts

Eddie Lack
Joe Cannata

Lack is expected to play the first two periods while Cannata will play the third. I'm interested to see how Shinkaruk looks with Kesler and Burrows. Horvat and Lain may be vying for that fourth line centre position to start the season, and I'm excited to see what they look like.

Edit: Here's the Shark's expected roster.

Pavelski, Desjardins, Sheppard, Steward, Burish, McCarthy, Hertl, Reid, Wingels, Oleksuk, Tarasov, Hamilton

Demers, Hannan, Irwin, Petrecki, DeMelo, Tennyson

Guess Gaunce getting called out by Sutter is just what the doctor ordered.

Clear the track, here comes Lack!

So far, I've liked what I've seen from Lack, Horvat, Tommernes (sp?) and Shinkaruk. Gaunce has had some good shifts, aside from his Johnny on the spot goal. Lain looks very promising as a potential future 4th line centre, and Archibald has made some nice plays.

Shinkaruk is looking like a steal

Gaunce looked decent

Like this Lain for the 4th line centre position

Decent showing by the prospects. Corrado, Horvat and Jensen looked decent as well. You can see that Horvat possesses a high IQ for the game, doesn't panic with the puck

Yeah Shinkaruks goal was dirty. It's not NHL level competition obviously but he just .. yeah. Great job potting one at that angle.

Also, it's not fair to mock but LOL at his dad getting all misty up in the stands..

Shinkaruk's goal was just dirty...good speed, good footwork and the kid has got some serious puck skills. It has been a long while since we saw somebody with those kind of hands come through this organization, nevermind an 18 year old kid.

What's to Mock? Is there something wrong seeing a dad get emotional for having seen his son score his first pre-season goal in the NHL? Do you not have kids, dbr! If so, that might explain it

A lot of people mock crying, especially guys doing it, we're not all blubbering eyetalians you know RD and for some people it's way outside of 'normal' behaviour.

As for me I'm not mocking but I did laugh. I don't know, it's compelling. It must be a hell of a feeling and to be perfectly honest it makes me want to go put a boy in my wife and then relentlessly push him into hockey whether he wants it or not.

Or you know, just encourage my kid and then take pride in her achievements wherever they are..

You called it BikerDude, it is the time for the proud parents to shine, to express their hearts...after years of sacrifice, early early mornings, forgoing a family vacation for a better hockey school or higher league for Hunter...what else would you expect when their son hit's his big league dream and scores his first goal in a Canucks uni. Yeah it's pre-season but it was sweet enough. Some are clueless and just don't get it. Thank the universe the emotionally retarded and racist don't breed eh?! :wink:

Apparently Luongo cried when Shinkaruk scored as well.

He's actually never met the kid, he just loves to cry.
