GDT: Kings at Canucks - 40th Season Opener

Postby Cornuck » Sat Oct 09, 2010 9:37 am

To me it's a special game tonight. Yes, I want revenge for the game that started it all. My parents were at that game, I remember listening to it, and my first hockey hate began that night. Kings suck!

It's time see how Gillis' moves pay off. The Kings will be a better team this year, so it should be a good match-up.

We've talked about it all summer, so there's really not much to say. but:

GO CANUCKS GO!!

It seems like it's been a long time since a meaningful game was played in Vancouver.
Both teams should be better than last year. I just hope an extended pregame ceremony doesn't sap the energy to start the game.

Two probable, or at least potential, division winners facing off. I could really see these guys, and Detroit, being what keeps us out of the top of the conference. So... why not get a few early points on 'em tonight. No one should make this out to be more than it is, just a game, but hey will be fun to get under way.

toucan - What????? Just a game?? WTF Are you not Canadian man????!!!! 8-) jk

This home opening somehow will be more to remember than most I think.. especially when you include it with the coming year and all the other wonderful sports Vancouver has enjoyed recently.

GO CANUCKS GO!!!!!!!

It's a little more than that. It's a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the very first Canucks game. Against the same L.A. team. Let's hope for a different result.
It's also our first chance to see how the new players fit on the team, and how Lou responds with a new style of play.

Both teams will be clad in copys of their 1970 uniforms.

Nice, Cornelius!! I have a few stubs from game one too .... but I bought them off of ebay.
That stub looks like it's in pristine shape!


CDC is going to show the pregame warmup live ... for those hardcore Canuck fans and those that are tired of watching the battle of Ontario.

Yeah, yeah and they can role out the same cheap marketing gimmick in ten years. Lets just hope we get two points out of this, you sentimentalists you.

Do you ever show any emotion or get excited about anything?
I can imagine you yawning while blowing your load.

Eww ... trying to get that thought outta my head :scowl:

Fun game to watch despite the outcome. Luongo looked good - especially compared some of his other early season games.
