GDT: Nov 4: Canucks v. World Series Champs- 5pm - SNet(Pac)

Postby dhabums » Fri Nov 04, 2011 2:22 pm

Once again, my decade long streak of perfection is on the line.

CANUCKS (6-6-1) at BLUES (5-6-0)

TV: SNET-Pacific (HD), FS-Midwest (HD)

Last 10: Vancouver 5-5-0; St. Louis 5-5-0

Season series: Friday marks the second of four meetings between these Western Conference foes. On Oct. 26 in Vancouver, each team's backup netminder started in goal and Brian Elliott outdueled Cory Schneider in a 3-0 St. Louis victory. Elliott made 32 saves for his 10th career shutout and Alexander Steen scored two goals in the win.

And to piss of a certain group of geniuses:

No chance this comes through.

Memories.

I'll be watching this halfheartedly at the bar.

Let's do this!

How about this little piece of incentive for the hockey gods: if we win convincingly tonight I will get so bombed I urinate in my pants without realizing it again! Hockey gods love public ambarrassment!

Can I get a hell yes it's Friday? I'll be three sheets to the wind by sundown!

FUCK YA!!!11

Is anyone else legitimately concerned for my well-being at this point?

The Wild loss wasn't as bad or as publicized as the 7-1 loss to the Hawks from last year, but we can only hope it has the same effect. That loss seemed to be a huge turning point in our president's trophy campaign.

I was thinking the same thing. We may have looked even worse in the Wild game. If we were playing a team that could score, it could have been really ugly. As it was, we still were actually in it at the start of the 3rd.

Score first: check.
Lead after 1st: check.
PK 100%: check.
Schneider plays great: check.

We lose 5-1? WTF?

I'll put on my TOP(per) Hat and point out it was just another play that died on Hodgson's stick. :mrgreen:

Something looks really wrong with our team.

The Sedins aren't clicking whatsoever.

Really missing Burr on the first line.

Kesler's not getting loose.

David Booth can't buy a goal.

Higgins is kicking ass.

Malholtra is utterly useless out there.

There is zero threat from our defense right now.

Anytime Bieksa tries to do something offensive, it invariably backfires.

Where's Ballard?

Sulzer's looking alright.

We're losing most of the puck battles, way too easy to play against.

Teams with Suzler, Ebett, Alberts, Ballard and Weise in their lineups are not championship (or even playoff) calibre.

A deserved loss. Too lazy, too soft in our zone, must be fun for teams to play us now. Edler was particularly awful, just dreadful. They'll get it together, but they look lost in the last two..lost.

Bloody disgusting.

This team spends too much time talking about sleep doctors, iPod on the bikes and not enough what it takes to win. Booth has been a disaster so far, a lot like Ramond but hits more. Edler is either an all star or a no show, what the hell has happened to this team?
