If you didn't even see the game, don't tell me that we are blaming SOB for everything.
Bieksa has been lazy, he probably costed us that 4th goal in Calgary cause he backed off, maybe to cut off a pass.
Edler hasn't made any noticeable mistakes, and I watch every minute of every game now, all 9 preseason and both in the regular season. Edler hasn't been what SOB has been to the team, a bad influence on the ice.
SOB probably has been told to go for hits, but he needs to stop aiming at people's heads. He deliberately went for the head, twice now, in two games. One was a bad pinch, the other was stupid, should have gone for the puck. Both times, Canucks was creating chances and pressure, but the PK killed all of it.
He needs to play his role, a third pairing defensmen that's not pressured for offense, play some solid D, fight, clear the crease, put a hit out when you can, and don't jepordize your team by taking stupid penalties.
But nope, when he has the puck, he wants to be Bouwmester, he wants to stick handle his way out of the zone, be cute with the puck, or just simply not becareful and whenever he tries to, he loses the puck, and more often then not, it creates chances for the opponents. Sooner or later, these will result in goals.
Don't look up when you retrieve the puck behind the net, cause you just an't there yet SOB. Make sure you get the puck on your stick, before you look up, if there's a guy coming for your head, Luongo will let you know.
You can tell by how he handles the puck in the offensive zone when we have sustained pressure, he wants to make a nifty move and shoot the puck. I'm willing to bet anyone real hard cash, that in this season, he will cough up the puck and it will end up behind our net when he tries to do something stupid at the point.
He has 1 goal in all of last season, in the last game in the playoffs. He shouldn't try and shoot, just pass it to your partner, who outscored you by over 1000%, so he can do something instead.
If he didn't take so many stupid penalties, I wouldn't mind him as a 6th defensemen.
This signature hates SOB as much as the guy who wrote this signature.
