Hmmm or maybe someone will actually call out the Sedin's ( Yeah I know on this board its like pissing in/on the HOLY GRAIL) ?
2 goals .. both on the PP.. no goals 5 on 5.. Dude hasn't got around to them yet..


Yes what bums.....I can think of dozens of other players we could plug in as UFAs for the same if not less who would do more than those shitty sisters.

Maybe you should stick to math.

Because the Sedins are actually playing slick hockey, not for a full 60, but when they are good they are superstar good, creating and making tactical skillful plays, that is even making Kassian look like the 2nd coming of a Cam Neely/Bertuzzi/Hartnell/Lucic hybrid.

Garrison well yeah, he's out there being mediocre and not looking too awful.


What did the dude eat for dinner ?

It's difficult to decipher your writing most of the time, but you're saying Kassian's strong start has nothing to do with his individual preparation, skills and execution and has everything to do with his linemates? Riiiiight. Too bad Kassian isn't capable of making his own "tactical skillful plays", huh?

That's your analysis?? So he's awful, but not too awful? Mediocre is synonymous with awful then? Great stuff here!

Call them out if you like.

I look at it like the Sedins are nearly point per game players this season and can't possibly sustain the low shooting percentages they have right now (Daniel = 8%, Henrik = 0%). They're adjusting to a new linemate, haven't played much in nearly a year and are traditionally slow starters. They'll get on a roll, like they always do, and some people will still choose to rag on them. Meh.

Did someone piss your cheerios today?

Well of course Kassian working hard in the offseason has helped him so far this season! Image

However don't ya think having the uber twins set him up with perfect passes has helped more than anything?

Because haven't we seen the twins do this to almost every RW they have ever played with?

Cheer up ffs.

I don't have the stats right in front of me, but I think the Sedin's have something like 2 assists between them on Kassian's 5 goals....

Personally, I'd keep Burrows with the Sedin's until the twins get going again and move Kassian down on the second line (whatever line that is these days). Move Kassian back with the Sedins on the power play

Oh, and I'd probably call a timeout

Yep and the 2 assists where on the same goal.. So ...I agree the Sedins will improve and are slow starters but think that the Canucks offensive problems are more to do with their lack of production 5on 5 than the loss of Kesler to injury

Holy c(r)ow! The vitriol over a little tough love for Garrison. You guys can all unbunch your panties now, I promise not to analyze Garrison's game anymore. Hate to see y'all weep like a bunch of girls.

Start with the patch. Get hooked before you start actually smoking.

If you start hacking after your first smoke you might give up... and nobody likes a quitter.
