Some insight into GMMG judge of young talent. Put forth an offer sheet to Backes in the summer of 08 before he did anything significant. Now Backes leads the Blues in scoring. Gillis has made mistakes but overall I'm so impressed with his insight. Our best GM ever imho. Hands down.
Love seeing Cody getting more minutes. Overdue.

Pretty sloppy at times for both teams. Canucks are clearly gassed. BIeksa with another weak play. Elliot looking like the Elliot of old on the BUrrows goal.

Horrible rebound by Luongo that started a weird goal.

Bieksa is a DISASTER defensively yet again.

23 shots for the Blues

12 shots for the Canucks.

This is fucking pathetic.

This power play fucking sucks.

Two short handed chances. First one on Hammer, second one on Bieksa.

Geezes christ guys.

May want to change up the point men on the first unit. Two breakaways. Yikes.

Every since Salo went down, the defense has been in real disarray.

Hammer, Bieksa, Edler... not playing good at all.

We're constantly screwing up our break out and getting out muscled by the bigger St. Louis forwards.

The mistakes weren't the D men. First was Daniel's shitty pass and the second was Kesler with a blind back hand pass into the middle.

I posted on the hfboards during the game that Salo is more of an anchor on the blueline than anyone wants to admit.

Alberts on pace for about 12 minutes tonight. Sulzer looking completely lost at times in the defensive zone. Makes very little sense to have sat Ballard IMO.


Cammallerri has apparently been traded to Calgary according to the twitterverse.

Disagree on the first, agree with the 2nd.

However, considering how you schooled RD on the Manny FO discussion and how I don't have a PVR, I'm not going to argue with you. :D
