GDT: 2/28 - Canucks @ Yotes - 6pm SNet

Postby Cornuck » Tue Feb 28, 2012 2:36 pm

Hey - almost forget we had a game tonight with all this excitement!

Has anyone heard if any of the new guys are slotted in?

Phoenix is 10-0-1 this month - should be a close game.

...apparently Sammy and Kassian play.

MAG is an uncertainty.

Per Murph. (although the lineup card at the home site would indicate this is not set in stone)

Would be surprised if they take Rome or Tanev out, the 3rd pairing has looked very good the past few games.

Kind of a sad testament that swapping Ballard for a skinny rookie seems to have stabilized the defense.

I told you that Ballard trade sucked!

Oh wait, that was a different mod.

Pahlsson with 10 takeaways and 3 hits.

Kassian gets 4 goals while playing on every line.

Detractors all jump on the Zack Wagon claiming they always knew this was for the best.

:roll:

This will be a tough game for a very tired group of guys. Hopefully Pahlsson and Kassian can inject some energy into the lineup tonight because this team could really use a an extra spark to finish off the road trip on a positive note.

If the refs officiate this one like they have the last three, maybe Kassian will fight one of the Zebras. :look:

I really hope the Canucks can strike early tonight, and more than just a couple of times. The team has it in them to hold a team like the Coyotes at bay and protect a lead, but we saw what happened in Dallas when we only had that one goal cushion. The goal needs to be at least 3 markers by the halfway point, then just do our best to keep Phoenix to the outside and let Schneider weather the storm.

Kuzma just tweeted that Canuck fans are here there and everywhere (no Paul McCartney isn't one of them) #it'sahomegame.

If Kassian scores the roof comes off of Jobing tonight.

I'm sitting in the Jobbing plaza right now, it's a sea of blue & white here. (2 hours to game time)

There are at least 250 people walking around in Canucks jersys, I've seen like TWO Coyotes jerseys. :lol:

I usually have to get Canucks on Satt radio when I'm out of town, It's a bonus to go see it live tonight.

Should be an interesting game. I think we will miss COHO for this year and part of next while Kassian gets up to NHL speed. He seems to be taking a little longer to make his mark. Having said that I'm thinking we'll see a dust up between Kassian and Bissonet tonight if both are healthy. I think this one will be a physical game.

Now AV can play his tried and true Defensive line strategy against the other teams top line, at least that's what he has been saying about the lineup this year. He wants to release Kesler from any of the D responsibilities so that he can concentrate on providing offence. I think he felt that that was what got them to the seventh game last year. A more traditional approach. No I can't point to any one story as my source, just my gut from reading things here and there. I hope Pahlsson can still do what he used to. I was hoping that MG would get Gaustad for the third line role but a 1st rounder wow.

http://canucks.nhl.com/club/depthchart. ... glg-lineup

Luongo out, Schneider in according to CDC. Won't be surprised either way, but I do expect to see Schneider getting a few more starts over the next 3 weeks as he was promised around 30 games this year, then we will see Luongo get a run of starts to end the season and get him in his game groove for the playoffs.

I've heard MAG needs another 14 games to keep RFA status, as he hasn't hit 80 games in his 3rd pro year, so I expect to see him down the stretch for sure.

comparing apples ( offensive dman ) with oranges ( stay at home - keep it simple dman) spudman. Tanev is more responsible in his own zone.. Ballard more gifted offensively..
