This will also give us a chance to see just how tight the officials will call it now that the rules have changed.


Problem is that Henrik is best at setting up plays in the opponent's zone, so he needs someone with finish.
No reason why MayRay can't use speed to draw penalties on the third line, then roll out the PP

I would agree with the finish part but I don't think the experiments involving Raymond in the bottom 6 have done very well thus far.

The unfortunate conclusion might just be that after getting a dirty hit from the Bruins & the recovery - he just doesn't have what it takes to make the team.
To keep him in the lineup means that we have to sit out Ebbett or Weise or Bitz - maybe the better option is to try out one of those 3 on the third line and bump up Higgens or Hansen, have MayRay on the 4th line (or press box!)

I get the feeling that he will be going back down if he has a weak game, but I just hope we don't have to lose to figure out what doesn't work. :(

AV had a comment about Raymond yesterday that went along the lines of "He's had a tough year coming back from the injury but now is the time he needs to step up".

The pessimist in me would suggest that is a warning shot that he better perform or he'll find himself with the black aces.

You don't break up the third line as it has just been too damn good. Which is shocking as it doesn't have Hodgson on it!

AV seems to be conceding that Raymond does not work on the second line so it's first line or bust right now for RAymond. If he struggles I wouldn't be shocked to see him moved to the 4th line and Lappy and Kassian get spots in the top 6...provided they are playing well in comparison.

With Daniel out for who knows how long it is imperative that Keslers line gets going.

I really believe Kes is going to have a great playoffs.

Go Canucks all the way to the Cup.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Curious to see how David 'The Airhead' Booth handles his first playoff game.

He'll probably just continue on being a two way force.

I'm getting a kick out of all the hand wringing this year. We have a great team. IMO we're deeper this year than last, and we're definitely more experienced. Now let's see what they can do.

I'm so pumped. 7:30 can't come fast enough!

I guess with the arrival of shut down hockey, that's a good thing, but to count on him and his linemate, ie Ryan Kesler to score right now? Yikes, especially with our top mesh rippler - Daniel Sedin out of the line-up and a piece of business named Jonathon Quick. Kes and the Air Bubble are about as dry as an AA meeting when it comes to Red Lighting.

The dude needs to get back on the weed. He is like an old granny on a meth bender whose welfare cheque is about to run out two weeks early.

I have no weed but I shall prevail. i found a thirty year old bottle of whiskey in my bar that I didn't know was there. It's a corked bottle similar to the corked whiskey i pounded back in game 7 against the Hawks. I'm not a huge rye drinker but I need to get off the beer.

Whiskey and Ginger it is !!

3 -1 Canucks.

=(

I only recently found a new source, and got some nice sativa the second 'round. It's really nice, but provides less analgesic relief than the bog standard mafia-grown indica that's common here. I really need to switch to beer from Finlandia/Black Bush. Good thing I've got a sixer of Newcastle in the fridge.
