Luongo had a horrible star just like he always does but those who think he has "lost it" at an age where most goalies actually improve, are out of their minds.
Kesler is getting 4 to 5 great scoring chances a game and missing all of them. It is absolutely a classic case of a guy squeezing his stick and it was totally predictable.
Booth just got here and needs to lean the system and get comfortable with line mates. Gillis said on the radio 2-weeks ago that it would take quite a while for Booth to fit in and I tend to agree.
Hamhuis couldn't work out most of the summer due to injury and Bieksa has already picked things up after a crap start.
This team will be fine, people really need to stop the bed wetting.
Actually don't stop, because I will end up looking a lot smarter then I actually am when the team is up near the top of the conference 20 games from now.
I don't have any concerns over any of those players not improving. Hamhuis is already looking better, and it won't be long before he plays stout defense. When he's at his best he's a difference maker. I've never seen a Canucks defenseman play as well defensively as Hamhuis did in the playoff run.
I'm also looking forward to seeing Raymond return. It will likely take him until the all-star break for him to find some good consistency, but he's going to be a nice addition to the top 9.
