GDT: 7/10/15 Canucks @ Flames 7pm SN

Line up

Vancouver Canucks:
Sedin - Sedin - Sutter
Baertschi - Horvat - Vrbata
Burrows - McCann - Hansen
Prust - Cracknell - Dorsett

Edler - Tanev
Hamhuis - Bartowski
Hutton - Sbisa

Miller

Calgary Flames:
Gaudreau - Monahan - Hudler
Bouma - Backlund - Frolik
Ferland - Bennett - Joores
Bolig - Stajan - Jones

Giordano - Hamilton
Russell - Wideman
Engelland - Nakladel

Ramo


Canucks line up not official, is based upon lines at practice. Willie not releasing ahead of time, like last year.

I really like Cracknell in the fourth one over Vey. I really like the third line McCann over Vey. I love that Horvat earned the chance to carry the mail on the second line. Vrbata likes it too. WD said both Horvat and Vrbata lobbied to play together, said it wasn't the original plan but he likes their chemistry.

Feels Sutter with his speed can get to the D zone quickly and take the down low position which should help the twins with the transition. Sutter can also take the draws on the right side, Hank on the left. Gives that line a different dynamic.

With Sutter, Baertschi, McCann, Hutton, Prust, Bartkowski and Cracknell not part of the team last year nor part of the rivalry I think the press is blowing things out of proportion saying this is a grudge match. 2 points in Oct is 2 points in April.

I think the Canucks are ready. Calgary handled us pretty easily in preseason but I think they will find a different team tomorrow.

4-2 Canucks. McCann gets his first, Hutton with two assists, Baertschi with 2 assists.


SEASON ON

It's hard to believe that the season's starting already. Summer just flew right by in my world.

I wanted to see the Virtanen/Horvat/Bae line but I trust ol' WD knows what he's doing.

Excited to see McCann and Hutton in the real show. Also excited to see Miller this season. I'm predicting a bounce-back effort from him, to an upper-echelon goalie in this league. He had a pretty solid season last year but he can get better.

4-3 Flames in OT. :(

All those lines look exciting, well except maybe the 4th. But you godda admit, unlike previous years this is a bonafide 4th line that can kick some ass.

No prediction, just gonna enjoy seein da kids play. I also believe Miller will be rejuvenated this year.

I like the versatility of our lineup. My guess is Virtanen and McCann split starts for a while until someone stands out or the both do and push someone else out of the lineup.

Weber and Hutton will likely do the same on the back end.

It's nice to see some youth push and make the team. We are going to see some gaffs but this is the year we can be patient and let the kids learn. We still have a great veteran presence for them to learn from, unlike some other re-builds we've seen in our division.

Would definitely like to hand it to Calgary in our first game after the performance we gave in the playoffs handing them the first round. Game on!!

So if/when Ferland starts running around like an idiot, who's going to respond?

Pfft, did anyone ever use Beta? I don't think I've even seen one of those.

A new season, a new and improved Horvat.

Trimmed down to 220lbs, Bo will fuck 'em up in a response to running one of his line mates.

Prust will go Keith Moon on him if he thinks Vancouver will get fooled again.
