VANCOUVER CANUCKS VS LOS ANGELES KINGS ROUND 1

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

and when we do use, or abuse, these, commodities, we, uh, are really bad at spelling and grammar and shit.

stuff.


and i never knew you need grammar to win hockey games.



next up, you tell us that we spell Bieksa wrong, and Sedin suppose to be Sundin, and Naslund's first name is Mats... oh wait, that's Bob Cole... i probably should delete this... but.. meh..



focus on the subject, if your going to attack my grammar, i'll get to post my three thousand word argument why we should nuke USA.


Well the subject was you calling Americans dumb, and doing it in a post full of mistakes.

Farhan, this is going to go up as one of a very small handful of times that I can say I fully agree with you. I just skimmed through the thread which was quite out of character for the corner. A bunch of reactionary drivel being spewed back and forth. Lets keep the topic limited to hockey and show a tiny bit of maturity by ignoring inflammatory comments rather than throwing fodder on the fire.

One of the reason's I like this site so much is that it has tended to stay away from this type of obstreperous slag. This is not the venue for personal attacks or political soap boxing or smack talk based upon country of origin/residence.

Back to the topic...

IMO we should beat the Kings without too much trouble if we can manage to keep what defense we have uninjured. If our defense gets some more holes, even our high-scoring offense may not be able to make up for the cheesecloth backend. Speaking of offense what are the predictions for the Sedins in this year's playoffs. I think they have established themselves as point a game playoff performers now, but that isn't up to par with their regular season performance this year. Anyone think they can step it up and get to a point of 1.3 or 1.5 ppg? As well, will be interesting to see how the second line produces. Its speed is good, but can it keep producing solid secondary scoring with the tighter playoff game-style? Given the play of Wellwood in the playoffs I am less concerned about his performance and that of the third line, than I am of the first two. (obviously combined with the level of expectation)

Looks like you will have to "not fully agree" with me on this one as well (and "not unlike" the other times, I am thankful ;) )

On top of having a healthy defense, the Canucks will need Luongo to be near his best. Secondly - the Canucks will NOT defeat the Kings without "too much trouble." The Kings are a good team and the Canucks will be in for a war. Points wise, the Kings didn't finish too far behind the Canucks. The Kings also have a very talented and mobile defense (lead by Doughty) and this becomes even more crucial during the playoffs.

A relatively healthy Canucks 'D' + Luongo playing at his best = the Canucks winning in 6 very hard fought games (+/- 1 standard deviation).

If even one of these elements are missing however, the Kings WILL cause the upset (I am also assuming that our forwards will play at the level that they have been playing, while the Kings themselves will stay relatively healthy). I hate to admit it, but outside of Detroit/Phoenix and *maybe* Buffalo/Boston, Vancouver/LA has the highest potential for an upset. (I've listed Detroit/Phoenix since Detroit is technically the "underdog" due to being the lower seed).

Thanks TC,

I guess it actually *is* possible for me not to receive some kind of gay backhanded compliment on here. :shock:
