GDT: Canucks @ Atlanta - 4:30 - Snet

Postby Cornuck » Fri Mar 25, 2011 11:14 am

Hey- where's Farhan? Isn't this supposed to be the 'revenge' game?

Hopefully it's just another injury free 2 points.

GO CANUCKS GO!

So the league's best team rolls into town on a Friday night... and the lower bowl is half empty. How can Bettman say this franchise is viable? How can Aquaman agree with giving these guys his money? What a joke Atlanta is. Professional lacrosse draws more fans.

On the flip side it would be great to play there for millions of bucks. Hit up the local Safeway in your Escalade and have everyone think you're a fit banker, or in the case of Dustin Byfuglien, a successful used car salesman.

These guys look like they have the cruise control set @ 110 klicks. Playing another desperate team and holding them off without much trouble. 2 - 0 after 2. Nice to see Raymond get one. Also nice to see that they're not relying on the Sedins.
Great to see Lou getting into playoff form.

What's with the Refs?? Once again, no consistancy.

Sure do like the play of Evander Kane. Very impressive young player.

Is it just me or do the refs put their whistle in their pocket when someone hooks or slashes a Canuck player. I'm starting to really notice a pattern here. I'd be willing to bet that was the complaint that AV and RB had with them tonight.

I think that it's more a case of refs not calling stuff when the team is winning. In Bettman's league, the losing team gets more power plays late in the game.

Still, Luongo is looking really good right now. I don't know if there's a goalie that can beat him in a 7 game series.

Tony Gallagher's "conspiracy" theory just might be right.. No way could both ref's of missed seeing the Thrashers 3 or 4 obvious slashes and hooks . All in an attempt to keep bettmans expansion into non hockey markets alive by slanting the ice ? Dunno but the reffing was terribly one sided tonight and the Canucks PP was kept off the ice.. Maybe they don't want 2 swedes from Canada winning the scoring titles ? Glad that Luongo had a great game and put an end to the Thrashes chance at a playoff spot.. TAKE THAT BETTMAN AND SHOVE IT WERE THE SUN DONT SHINE :lol:
