Can we count tonight as a night off?

Was anyone watching HNIC prior to the Canucks/Habs?

During the Ron and Don wrap up of the Leafs and Senators games they took a minute to point out Ron Maclean's son ...
Brad Richards, and his incredible play where during a breakout. He had a winger ahead of the defence but couldn't get a pass through, so he intentionally iced it off of the end boards and the winger got their first. High praise for such an original idea. I can't believe no one has used that before. OMG Brad Richards is so great and original. A real game changer. Have I seen that before? No probably not ...

Speaking of the Sedin twins I am starting to get officially concerned about their lack of production. IMO ... Ever since Henrik took that shot in the foot/ankle they haven't been the same. Maybe Daniel is feeling it too because they have twin psychic abilities where they both suck at the same time. Either way only two games in seven days should be good for the team. They look like they need a rest.

I live in the Calgary market and the Flames have a promotion on...

"Every game matters"

Well, I guess this doesn't apply to the Canucks, players. I know they are a lock for the playoffs, but what I find concerning is our core. Luongo, and the Sedins. Will they do "this shit" during the playoffs again? I thank our lucky stars we didn't trade Schneids. Cuz if Luongo sucks in the playoffs..he will be gone...really gone. Yes, I realize it just wasn't them, I just hope they have learned from last playoffs...and how to win the f'ning cup.

:lol:

The Flames are one of the worst teams in the league for 'mailing it in" and have been for the past 4 or 5 years.

I don't think the slashing of skill for shut Down hockey has been working all that well. Well AV, you've got your wish for more lunchbucket and less skill, but uh, I don't think it's working. Gonna be interesting when the playoffs come and the real shut downing of the Sedins begin, just where oh where will the offense come from? Sami Pahlsson? :rofl:

Canuck fans are morerons 8-) ...many elite teams have sucked before the playoffs begins, these games mean nothing, try getting yourself motivated for them....many of you have admitted yourselves that you are having a hard time getting into this season not only after being burnt out from last Spring...nothing matters but the post-season...these guys want revenge, they have something to prove...and nothing beginning with regular or ends in season...can't wait...so I don't have read this whiny crap that doesn't matter right now...

....Take Care...

So, they're just resting then? Taking it easy? Shit, why didn't anyone tell me. Shi-ite, how good are you, when you can just flick a switch and go from a team playing shitty hockey to a team that will demolish opponents come playoffs.

Hmmmm Boston did it last year...Detroit won the cup doing it last time...les seeeeee....Anahiem, Edmonton...yep, all sucked the last month going into and getting to the finals...last year it was all about individual awards...even going so far as to putting Cory in the last game to get his name on a trophy...Dank got his, Ryan...it was supposed to be a dream 40th season and you know what?!

BLAM!

Reality in the form of Marchand hit them in their fucking balls and all reality bullshit came crashing down on them.
The word is out, clutch and grab, in your face, cheap shot hockey is back with a vengeance and MG made his team a little uglier is all and told them do your best this season and bide your time until you can prove yourself in the season the really matters...beating Montreal? Really? Do we have to get our panties in a knot? Ask yourself this...Are slumps going to last beyond the next 12 games.....?

You're a smart guy...and you are better than this Dude...ask yourself...what would Lebowski do?! 8-)

Hamhuis all but confirmed that he has been going through the motions and just wants to playoffs to start today.

Did anyone else watch after hours last night? Scott Oake was brutal, he basically badgered Pacioretty the entire interview about his injury that happened last season, then he badgered Hamhuis about his finals injury that happened last season.

I agree. While it is never fun watching them lose - then again, I skipped the game and went to the bar, so it's not like I cared that much anyway - what happens in game 69 tells us nothing about what will happen in game 1 of the playoffs. It's not pc to say it, but actually yes, history shows that a switch does usually get turned on for the playoffs.

It was funny to read Gallagher today (he being the bedwetter in chief of the Van media) say that the Canucks losing in the first round is a very real possibility...no shit TG. It's a real possibility regardless of how they are playing now. This isn't the NBA, where the first round is a pro forma walk through. Then again, if the Canucks were on a 9 game win streak, TG would be lambasting AV for wearing out his players for meaningless reg season games.

I certainly hope they start playing better, but whether they stink the rest of the regular season or get on a roll it won't make a difference as to how I look at the playoffs...I'll be freaking nervous the whole way, from the drop of the first game's puck. Up until then, I am paying more attention to the 7-8 spot to see who might be the matchup. No use stressing until then...

So let me get this straight, we trade away a top offensive potential star in the making go to guy ready to replace Kesler AND the Sedins all at once and all we get back is a goon, a has been and a butt ugly skater. This team couldn't score if their life depended upon it and what does MG do? Fire MG, fire AV.

We play shut down hockey but we can't even do that. And that Howden kid is going to be something let me tell you.


Bikerdude is that you??

Wot are you doing at HW's house?? :shock:

They appeared to just flick a switch against Toronto, Detroit, St. Louis and Winnipeg in the last 3 weeks.
