Bachelor was on so naturally I was watching the game in the bedroom. I fell asleep at 3-0 in the 2nd period. I wish it would have ended there.
I woke up at the beginning of the third and was ready to shut it off. We all know what happened before I hit the power off button. I wish I would have just shut it off then and there at 3-1 but I had a feeling I wanted to slow down and watch the car wreck first hand.
I have never in my 25 years as a Canucks fan, have seen such a dissapointing display of hockey. Sure I remember the late 90's and all of the Messier BS but at least I was too preoccupied to give a shit. Information is so much more readily available now I get to see/hear/and feel my favourite team fall apart every day.
I love Eddie Lack but he wasn't exactly wrong when he shouldered the blame for the loss. Definitely could have made a save or two in the third.
Eddie doesn't look like the goalie that started the year with the club. People are bringing up the loss of the Loungo safety net ... but I blame Melanson. Eddie started the year strongly and has gradually gotten weaker as the season wears on.
His rebound control is weak, for a big guy he plays VERY deep in his net (Rollie written all over it) and drops to his knees early every shot. I don't like Melanson's style. Never have. Lou was just enough of a veteran to pick and choose what attributes of it he used, and discard the rest. Lack is buying in completely and right now it's hampering his game.
Anyway last night sucked. Somethings has to give here. I see no other option then removing Torts.
In Okinawa, all Miyagi know two things: hockey and karate.
