Sturm is fucking awful.

Samuelsson is DUH out there.

Hansen is in need of some serious vitamin B shots

Why isn't everyone on the team skating with meaning and desire like Chris Higgins this year so far?

Malhotra is useless.

Bieksa is back in Dumbville again.

And Lou-Flop-O belly is flopping the ice again.

Nice fucking punch Volpatti returned with.

Funny how 2 people hear different things. I find him dreadfully dull and repetitive. And he says the same thing over and over. He repeats himself a lot. He does point out the obvious quite well though.

I think we miss Kesler and Raymond more than we know...

The Sedins are the ONLY forwards that are producing.

Nice work by Hank scoring the PPG.

Sedins have looked very good so far this season, but we miss Kesler somethin' fierce (who wouldn't?). The Canucks just aren't focused. They have flashes of great play, and then mental brain cramps and stupid mistakes that cost them.

Did I miss something? Or did Luongo not make that first cross-crease save... he hasn't been good to start the year, but I don't think we can fault him with either of the first two tonight.

Ballsy fight from Volpatti. Seriously out-sized and he comes back to buckle Sutton's knees.

Bieksa is in fine "just got a contract" form. Casual Kev is back it seems.

You're being a bed-wetter. You always hammer this team, but give them more than 4.5 games.

Sturm is an older player, coming off surgeries, he's on a new team. GIVE HIM 10 GAMES before passing judgment.

Samuelsson is one only 2 or 3 Canucks who has a nose for the net and will fire the puck, he is a useful cog in the machine.

Malhotra is not useless, the guy wins pretty much every draw he takes. Again he's an older player coming of a SERIOUS injury. Give him 8 to 10 Games before passing judgement.

Not sure where you are going with Bieksa.

I'll give you the Luongo stuff, but not based on tonight. Luongo is certainly overrated and overpaid but tonight's goals are not on Red Light Roberto.

Just take a few breaths, think about last season and note the similarities in the personnel, the coaching staff, the management and even the start. This team will be 100+ points and in the playoffs, fear not.

(And if we miss anyone, its Christian Erhoff.)

Salo has done very well on the PP tonight. Rocket shots scored the first and created the second goal. He won't last the whole season (right?! ;) ), but we didn't have the option of keeping Ehrhoff. Having Salo there lessens the loss.

Higgins has been a delight. We rewarded him with a contract and he's rewarded us by being our best forward not named Sedin through 4.5 games.

I've heard him do the Stars games for years. Found him to be the best, funny, knows the game, quick with his commentary amd fair. He's head and shoulders above the other commentators, glad to see him get a shot at HNIC.

Nugent-Hopkins kicked that goal in with a distinct kicking motion. Too bad there wasn't an NHL rule about that, eh?

Of course the love-fest announcers didn't even notice.

It is a touch annoying. They've got a couple greasy PP goals. None of them have exactly been nice... certainly not orgasm on-air nationwide nice.

I guess I long for a colour guy that seems literate. Maybe it's just me.

He is definitely a step up from Weekes.
