GDT: 25/3/16 Canucks @ Blues 5:00 pm SN

Post by Hockey Widow » Fri Mar 25, 2016 4:14 pm

Markstrom to start.

Grenier and Higgins papered off emergency recall status but stay with the team as regular recalls. That uses up our recalls for this season in the absence of another emergency recall.

Biaga out, Pedan in.

Dorsett back, McCann out.

We should have Higgins, Burrows, Hansen and Dorsett all back in the line up tonight! I guess Gaunce will be back at centre again.

I see value in playing Higgins if the goal is to try and get a team to bite on a trade in the off season, although by now I think everyone one knows what they are getting in him. I see value in playing Vey for the same reason. I see no such value in playing Weber. I have no problem sitting McCann. There is no question his developmental plan has been hampered by all the injuries. I really see Utica in his future, maybe not for long, maybe a full season. Get him playing top six minutes, on the PK and PP. Get him working on his D game under Green.

Tonight's game is about burning a game in hand :mrgreen: a regulation loss and we are eliminated from the playoffs. Blues fighting to catch Dallas.

Here is hoping they can start a new shutout string and try and break the record for goals not scored! I want a top Fin or American wearing the whale next year.

I don't think the Finns are NHL bound next year. Just the American.

Pedan just cleared the net there! Nice hit.

He is playing an aggressive game so far. Took a penalty but I'm ok with that. Instead of fighting him Reeves took a dive :mrgreen:

Thank you Linden Vey. A horrible horrible blind back pass on the PP. Blues break away 3-1 and get the shortie. Vey has to go, after he completes his job to help ensure a high draft pick :mrgreen:

Even picking up one point tonight is a disastrous result in our march to a top three.

Love to see that we finally have guys again like Pedan that have a little meanness in them… but with guys that are huge and actually intimidates some people. Not all bark and no bite.

Tryamkin is a little bit like that too, except with more skill. Does he have some offence in him? Hopefully he does.

Can't wait to send guys like Weber and Sbisa back to yodelling in the Alps and let Bartkowski tip-toe through some other tulips.

Oh, fuck off Vey! Fuck you Willie and your stupid kid!

I love that this incestuous father/son tandem is steering the tank off a cliff, but man, their two year stint here has really pissed me off :evil:
