Good to see effort a couple kids improving and being in most of the games.
Our 4th line is poised to crack 30 points this season if they keep playing like they are tonight.

Good to see the pluggers finally contribute.
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

LONELY_RATS?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Benning was asked during the intermission to qualify his comments about not asking players with NTC to waive. He said, and I paraphrase, that the vets left on the team with NTC are the players they want to mentor the young guys, play the right way and are integral to our continued development. Said he does not plan to move them out, wants them here the full year for the kids to lean on and learn from. Used Edler as an example of mentoring Stetcher and Burrows mentoring the young wingers. Feels they are more valuable to the future then any assets they night bring back, at this point. Of course some of those guys have modified NTC so he could be using spin here.

Bottom line, he seems to be saying he won't be cleaning house at the TDD, unlike last year when he let it be known that if we were out of the playoffs they may try to move some UFAs. In fact he didn't rule out that some of those UFAs?? Burrows and Miller are the only two right? Could be signed in free agency.


So it sure seems like what we see is what we get.
The only HW the Canucks need

Nice to see some of our foot soldiers win one for us. Would have been nice to see either Megna or Skille get the hat-track. They looked like snipers tonite. :D

I wonder how long it takes until Willie realizes that Sutter is the biggest Sedin black hole since Steve Bernier.
