GDT: Canucks host Ducks - 9/24 - 7pm - CBC, NHLN-US

Postby Cornuck » Sat Sep 24, 2011 11:47 am

Finally - I'm back home and can watch a game.

Tonight's lineup:

Sturm-Hodgson-Jensen
Sweatt-Ebbett-Orskovich
Duco-Schroeder-Mancari
Lapierre

Alberts-Tanex
Parent-Sulzer
Connauton-Ballard

Schneider-Lack

Good mix of some vets and rookies - Hodgson is getting better line mates - Ducks are looking for their first pre-season win.
Over 40 years of pain - I just want one day of glory.

I have been impressed with Jensen, hopefully this line has a good game

Hope Keith doesn't get dog-housed because Kevin Connauton play a lick of defense.

Hey Hank, well being an experienced NHL veteren getting paid 4.2 million, Keith Ballard's play should not be dictated by green rookie. It's time for everyone to stop making excuses for Keith, he doesn't need a rookie D-mate to set the tone of that pairs play, should be the other way around, shouldn't it? Cody Hodgson has had an excellent camp playing with 'less-than-desirables'. Why can't he?

Really looking forward to getting a chance to see what Jensen can do tonight. Missed most of the game the other night that he played in. Will be interesting to see Hodgson going up against Getzlaff.. this may prove to be quite difficult. Hopefully he can build on his strong game against the oilers. I was amazed at how well he played in that game. Mostly on the defensive side, taking the puck from horcoff was good.

Figure this game won't end up in our favour. But thats not necessarily the point of pre season. Goalies should keep us in it though.

Lol Dude! You're right, a veteran should play like one, no excuses. But your marionette SC can't see the difference when KB4 has to fight off 2-on-1s all night because your boy, the future ROY, is bone-headedly caught in the corners looking for quarters once again. SC gets easily distracted by Magic40 in his vision and his fingers are ready to start a new onerous 100-plus page thread. You must be yukking it up!

Besides, you've touted this "green rookie" enough times that I'm now convinced they let Ehrhoff go so Kevin Connaughton Playalickofdefense can run the power-play on the 1st unit and easily replace CE's offense. And since Aaron Rome is the better D-man and deserves more ice-time, I wonder why he can't play more than 2 shifts with Tanev and our excellent 4th liners without AV hiding him with KB3 or breaking up the other top pairs to accommodate him? Strange.

We'll find out in about 10 minutes...

Anyway Dude, I'm just kidding. Although you guys certainly made things interesting over at the other CC.

Hank, I'd cool it with the personal attacks against me.

And, on to the game...

I thought Hodgson was going to bag one with that slapshot - nice save by Hiller. I like how he is skating and working hard.

I think Jensen had that shot labeled for bottom corner there - to bad it hit a skate.

Nuck D gives Koivu time and space to cut to the middle and shoot, deflects off Blake's skate and in - 1-0.

Hodgson with another chance, in the paint... knocks it down and swipes it on net, but Hiller got it.

...And now Koivu scores on Schneider with a wicked wrist shot glove side after the entire Canucks D backs in..

This will be a tough game for Canuck goalies! Schneider has already made point blank saves on Getzlaf and Ryan.

Ohhh Parent. Second bad giveaway in this game. That's not going to help his cause - his claim to fame was reliable shut-down D.

Oreskovich-Ebbett-Sweatt create a glorious chance for Victor right in front... and he can't put it home. But he was in the right place.

You know S_C, I have to stifle a bit of a chuckle at your sensitive, innocent tone of victim mentality. After almost a year of non-stop "moderation" until the doors closed, you were certainly more constant over the top than a few scant mentions of your irritating ways from me. Is that considered a vicious sucker punch or cyber bullying from me? Or was your thread bullying causing posters to disengage and visit the site less?

But since Brian has been more than clear about "personal attacks" at this CC, I will agree with you. Let's have good discussions about this year and hope the Grabner word count is minimal over here, ok?

On the subject of Parent, I just don't see him ever sticking for long on an NHL club.

Agreed, Parent is Chicago/Kalamazoo(lol) fodder.


Here is the CBC tribute video for the players who died this off season.

Do I have rose colored glasses on or do most of these 4th line tryouts seem like better hockey players in nearly every way than Desbiens/Bolduc/Volpatti from last season?

Sturm with a sneaky little pass to Ebbett (who hadn't changed), but he can't bury it. (Sturm-Hodgson-Jensen)

Ebbett was reported to have a groin injury - eithr he recovered fast (yeah, right), or he is desperate to show something and beat out Hodgson and Schroeder. But I bet his groin is killing him this game.
