GDT 03-Oct-18: Canucks vs Flames 19:00 PST

Post by Meds » Wed Oct 03, 2018 9:45 am

Figured that someone should take the bullet of starting this, the first of 82 debacles. :lol:

Vancouver and Calgary will open up the season at Rogers Arena tonight in front of a house full of hopeful Brock Boeser and Elias Pettersson fans and a few old school Horvat supporters.

Markstrom to start.

The blueline is ready.

The forwards are primed.

It's likely to be a rout.

6-1 Flames. Eriksson with an empty netter.

Expected starting line up

Baertschi-Horvat-Boeser
Goldobin-Pettersson-Eriksson
Motte-Sutter-Virtanen
Leipsic-Beagle-Granlund

Schaller healthy scratch. If Virtanen’s back spams don’t settle a game time decision, he’ll be out and Schaller will draw in.

Edler-Tanev
Del Zotto-Stecher
Pouliot-Gudbranson

Healthy scratch:
Hutton-Biega

Markstrom to start.

Ouch... lets hope that isn't the real starting lineup.
Goldie, Petterssen and Ericksen ?
Was hoping Green would give EP some protection
Maybe Jake instead of LE ?
4 young players in the lineup while Shaller sits ?
Looks more like a training camp roster.
Defence looks even worse than expected
Hutton played 30 min in the only exhibition game we won..
Surely deserves a spot over Pouliot..
Going to be a long night for Markstrom..

4 - 2 Flames

I hardly ever predict on GDTs but;
Flames 5-2. The last one, open net as our guys pull the goalie down 2.
Elias gets his first on the PP.
"The Dog" gets his first as a Canuck.
And I have better odds winning the jackpot on LottoMax.

5-3 Canucks because it's the beginning of a new leadership, 53

Boeser turns it on
Pettersson breaks Johnny and Sean and Hanafin and GIordano's ankles.

5-2 for the Flegms with a late game pp goal scored by Boeser, Pettersen getting an assist for his first NHL point on the play.
