Highlighting the "your best players have to be your best players" kinda thing... The Sedins performance in the shootout legit costs us points.

Next practice should be an hour of straight breakaways...

At least we know Lack is capable.


This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Trying to teach the Sedins a lesson in a shoot out AGAINST THE BLACKHAWKS?!?!

The Nucks won tonight in spite of Torts. You put your best one-on-one players in the shoot out.

Santo, Kesler, Hansen, Higgins, Kassian .. even Weise.

NOT the god damn Sedins.

Attack boy Nucks!

::::Goes completely batshit insane:::: :crazy:

In all seriousness though, if there is one win this year that MIGHT have sold me on the small chance that this Canucks team has a chance of doing something special this year (and again.....I re-iterate.....MIGHT), then tonight was it.

I'd like to nominate tonight's win as the Canucks' best win of the season.......even more than the St. Louis game.

Canucks didn't have their A game, but they fought and battled very hard......which is what true championship calibre teams do.

If the twins went in with speed and just let s wrister go they would score 25-30% of the time..

Easy fella. What if I told you the moon was made of a massive rock of crack cocaine, would that be more stupid?

I'm certainly not agreeing with or trying to justify Tortorella's picks. I'm just pointing out that if the Sedins want to be counted on, they need to get better in the Shootout, otherwise they will continue to be embarrassed. I can't think of other (super)stars that are so completely off-limits in the shootout.

C''mon Dude.

For old times sake.

Let us know how you feel about David "Bimbo" Booth! :P ;)

Agree with you entirely though.

This was a great win for the Canucks. It was a character win.

Agreed rats.

Lack looked very composed in there.

Almost reminds me of Alex Auld from 2006.......but way better.

He looked real good. One benefit of having a newer goalie in the cage... opponents have no fucking clue where to shoot on him.

Island, just to be clear, I'm not calling you stupid.

I discount your theory of the Sedins wanting to be counted on more. Since the Sedins have come into their own, we've had problems with secondary scoring for a lot of that time. I think the Sedins look forward to becoming 2nd line players one of these days.

I really just don't understand Torts rationale for putting a ON THE ROAD 2 GOAL COME BEHIND GAME AGAINST THE DEFENDING STANLEY CUP DOUCHEBAGS in the hands of arguably our worst shoot out players.

Yeah we won, awesome but I just shake my head about that kind of retarded decision making.

You are seriously undermining their leadership, character, and integrity as athletes and competitors if you believe that the twins are looking forward to becoming 2nd line players one day ( and in effect, having less responsibility).
