GDT: Frogs vs Whales - 23 Jan 2021 @ 16:00 PST on SNP

Post by Meds »

An afternoon game. I'm quite certain we're screwed. :lol:

But we gotta flip this shit on its head.

14-0 Vancouver. Holtby with the goose egg. Petey with a 5 pointer. Bo with the triple. Hughes with 4 helpers. Toffoli with a pair of own goals credited to Beagle.

It'll look like a dog's breakfast out there, but a win is a win.

I reckon this is the one. This is where the season begins.

This team will dominate and win tonight due to a game finally having something worth fighting about.

I'm going 4-0 with Swedish gretzky and yankee orr dominating
Ah fuck this place cracks me up

If we cut back on the dumb penalties, we can win the last of three. Team confidence could use the boost. 5-3 Canucks with an empty netter.

Did you look at our top-6 D tonight? I sure hope Holtby has a few energy drinks on the bench.

Lol of course Eriksson is in. Travis is thrilled!

I was going to say I hope he puts some fresh blood in up front instead he rolls out the carcass of The Air Thief. At least change the fucking lines. Get Petterson away from the top D pairing and checkers.

Pearson Petterson Hoglander

How did Nolan Bumgartner qualify as a defensive coach i wonder...? Was he some prodigious junior or something? I remember a middling average at best jordy benn type and it seems thats the game the canucks defense are playing...

Status report

Perry could make his Canadiens debut after skating in Armia's spot in practice Friday and being promoted from the taxi squad Saturday. Byron didn't practice Friday and is a game-time decision after the forward was hit in the foot by a slap shot by Weber and leaving the game during Montreal's 7-3 win against Vancouver on Thursday. If Byron can't play, Mete could dress as a seventh defenseman. … The Canucks haven't updated the status of defensemen Edler, who missed the game Thursday, or Chatfield, who was injured in the game Thursday. Benn could make his season debut after being out because of COVID-19 protocol until he practiced Wednesday.

He's OK for a trainer but not a coach who Green has stated takes care of how the defense plays and what style for each team. You can see him talking to them all the time during games while Travis is watching the video clock at replays.

Is that confirmed? I thought we’d see Rathbone or Breeeezebois in for him after the last game.

The should try to get Bieksa as their defensive coach no matter who the head coach is. Clear communicator who will superman punch your head in if you give him any crap.
But he probably wouldn’t be interested as I imagine he is seeing where this media career takes him at this point.
