GDT- 10/9 - Flames at the Garage - 7:30 - CBC(HD)

Postby Cornuck » Thu Oct 09, 2008 9:23 am

After what can only be described as a roller coaster summer for Canuck fans, this year's version hits the ice for the first time tonight. With a new GM, stressing a new look for the team - what will we see? With a number of prospects getting a chance to finally make it, how will they do? Is the CAPTAIN ready to make up for what can be called a distracted year? This year's team asks more questions than it answers. Tonight we see if the preseason was a fluke or the real thing.

Tonight we see Bertuzzi in yet another uniform - is this the year he rebounds? First game of the year, he should be in fine shape to put on a show for his former home town fans. How will new Flame Mike Cammillari do while wearing the Burning C?

Tonight should a goaltender's battle with 2 teams trying to make a statement to start year. Grab your favourite beverage and put a do not disturb sign on the door - Canucks hockey starts tonight!

GAME ON!!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

I can't wait for 10:30 (stupid east coast). I have nothing else to do today so I'm counting down the seconds and listening to the Canucks entrance music on loop. I am so pumped, HOCKEY IS BACK FUCK YEAH!

I say 3-1 Canucks. Demitra X2, Bernier with the other. Aucoin will score for the Lames.

I forsee a really tough gritty game where the flames try to make a statement about the preseason game. They didn't like losing like that. Iginla is going to be pumped and ready to go. I hope our boys get out of the gate fast. If changing our game makes us more like the flame i can't wait till we get that first one. This year i see us being a more of a flurry team. Where we will score one and all lines will fire and hopefully we can get another one or two pretty soon there after.

I'm predicting a 4-1 Canucks win tonight. I think Captain Lu will have a very solid game. Bernier won't let the Sedin's get pushed around. And look for Hordichuck to take out Andre Roy. Also depending on if Pardy made the team. I see Rypien going after him.

Hockeys back baby!!!!

Tonight has been a long time comming. Is tonight the Luc Bourdon (R.I.P.) tribute? If it is, I hope they show it on t.v. There are 81 games to play after tonight so I'm actually not expecting much from either team tonight.

According to Canucks.com and a tv lisings website, the game starts at 7:30 p.m. Pacific. That's better.

No - the 'Ak-sar-ben Omaha Knights' moved to 'Quad City', where ever the hell that is! I'm only 3 hours away from Omaha, so I would have liked to have seen some games there. :(

But only 2-1/2 more hours til the puck drops!!
