Probably never, but if the Journeyman can score, I suppose anybody can.

Schroeder is goning to score and am I the only one who sees a player who surpises me with his guts and his speed. Kid can go.

Defence looked very good. Ginger in top form and Ballard proving a better investment every day. Not saying hs is worth the price. Just saying he looks good and his partner is growing into a top shut down guy.

Missing two of our six top and I do not believe I have ever seen a more balanced Canuck team. I have seen more talent, tougher players, but not a squad that buys into coaching like this which leads me to giving AV his respect.

That team out there tonight could be very good indeed. Glad I am not a coiler fan wondering what happened AGAIN. They got some great kids. I wish we had Nuge and a Burnaby boy at that, but it is not so. I watch Edmonton and wish for various players but not the team. They look to be at least two years away with good high draft picks coming their way.

What about Raymond? :D

Did you see Kassian pass and backcheck? Alright. That was fucking hockey.

How many points does Malhotra have?
One of the best face-off players in the league is valuable especially on the PK

He's pretty down these days due to the Canucks on-ice success of late... I I feel bad for him as he can't seem to find anyone who is underacheiving enough to keep him happy.

Don't worry buddy...someone will stumble soon

It was a pretty solid game all around. Schneider played well (probably get the next start), points from multiple lines, really good defensive coverage... hell Kassian backchecking like a beast. it was nice to see.

And very impressed with Tanev and Ballard. crazy good to see the "3rd" pairing playing as well (or better) than our top 2 pairings. Finally feels like the defense by committee strategy is coming together.

dominated the 1st period. With only three shots on net I thought Scheider was actively considering pulling out a sudoku book or ordering a pizza. :)

I know this is stupid and petty but I love it when players are signed way over priced and they fall flat on their face or the team that signs them falls flat. Suter and Parise are both over payed for what they can do for the team and now with just the 2 of them in 2 seasons ~25 of their cap could be tied up with only them.

Canucks looked good, so who will be in net for Saturday, maybe another coin toss?

Hopefully this may be a start of something for Higgins.

C'mon Blobby Beers...I know you are an aficionado of the hockey bruhaha mayhem so don't sit there and tell me that you are a fan of the Dale Weise fighting style which is um, quite Dana Murzyn, embarrassing to be honest. The guy has no proper fighting technique or skill, his whole game plan is too just hang in there, huggy bear, and not get hurt. His punches are of the Trevor Linden style, terrible. I will take the exciting, gutsier, toe to toe style of the Volpatti's and Rypiens of the world any day of the week.

I saw part of last nights game (2nd period and top 1/2 of the 3rd) and what I saw was the Wild dominating for much of it. They were more physical and winning more puck battles along the boards while hemming Vancouver in there own zone. They just could not score and could not keep the puck out of their own net when Vancouver did get a chance. Backstrom did not make the saves when he needed to.

It was the first I've seen Schroeder play since his perimeter float effort at the WJC and I was impressed with the all round effort of his game. He'll always struggle because of his size, but from what I saw he could be a decent utility man.

What a pass from Raymond to Hansen.

Did Tanev bulk up in the off season/lockout? What has always struck me about his play is his calmness with the puck, happy to make the safe play rather than try to force the issue and I saw more of that last night.

Edler has always been problematic retrieving puck behind his net when pressured and while better, his problems continue.

Hank continues with his Bertuzzi stupid penalties.

The game was much closer than the score reflects.
