I thot Barker made a nice debut tonite for the Nucks. Boy, he really seems like Wellwood's big bro out there, in appearance and mannerisms. *LOL* Barker really seems casual back there and it seems like he's taking it easy, like zero intensity. It looks like either he doesn't care or maybe he's super talented and he has nerves of steel with no panic to his game. :lol: He does seems to have some offensive instincts as he snapped the puck towards the net a couple times that lead to a couple rebounds (think he got an assist on 1), hopefully he'll find his game and become that player that made him a #3 overall pick. I noticed he was playing the right side with Edler a lot too, maybe that's why he played ahead of ballard cuz he's comfortable in that position.

A funny clip I found with Versteeg talking about his roommate Cam Barker. :lol:

Referee Kelly Sutherland cost us this game. There is a history between AV and Sutherland that goes back to the finals in 2011, he was the one watching Marchand punching Daniel in the head ,with no call. I've said it before on this board and I'll say it again, Sutherland is by far the worst ref in the NHL, shit he was terrible in the WHL.

I believe AV when he says he said nothing derogatory towards this poor excuse for a referee.

Own zone coverage has been really inconsistent this year. Two D men behind the net or in the corners and no centreman covering the net. Henrik last night twice was watching the puck and not picking up coverage. Even this is not what I would call correct coverage. There should always be 1 D man in front with the centreman providing support for the D man who is behind the net or in the corner. Quite often I've seen wingers in the corner on the wrong side of the ice and the puck will find it's way to the back side D man who then has a lane to walk in and blast a shot unopposed.

There were times I watched players in the D stick to the system even when it does not make sense. I agree AV has to go if this keeps up. Enough coming in second or fourth or WTF. We have talent. Let them play.

What a shitty effort against an inferior opponent. This is on you AV .... how the FUCK are Kassian and Booth going to succeed playing with a ham handed fucking diving french turtle like Lappierre??? They look fine and I believe if they even had Schroeder between them the line might look ok, but no AV is determined to shitcan his career as well burying him on the 4th line. AV is an asshole and for the love of fucking god why the fuck are both Alberts and Barker playing instead of Ballard ??? Brilliant move... Lets depreciate the asset before we move it. What does this fat frog do before he sells his house, go over the beautiful hard wood floor with puke coplored shag carpet? Rip out granite countertops and snap in laminate. The guy is a fucking clown.

As for Lappy i don't want that loser anywhere near this team next season even if he played for free.


Seconded.

He sure wasn't giggling last night during the post-game interview when answering questions about what he said to earn the bench minor " 'That's an elbow'. And that's how I got two minutes and that's how they scored their goal. I'm done here.".....haven't seen him that pissed off in a media scrum for quite a while (if ever).

AV's bitch is about consistency. How is Hartley able to beak off at the officials in the 1st period with no penalty and when AV does it the call is made? AV does not have a history of hassling officials, if he did I could see some rationale. BTW the incident AV was upset about was a butt end to the head.

AV does have a history with the official in question, though.

They lost this game in the first and second. They out played Calgary for two periods but did not get enough shots nor did they pounce enough on a goalie that was giving up home runs for rebounds. If they had more finish, more of a killer instinct in period 1 or 2 they would have won this game. Calgary owned the third for the most part. We had shifts were we pressed but no energy. And Luongo let in two bad goals and the third was a shin pad deflection off of Garrison. So if Luongo had been stellar and had we capitalized more in the first or second we would have walked away with two points.

As for the reffing, it was as usually pretty bad. The call on AV was total BS. Tanev got an elbow and the butt end of a stick on that play and nothing called. I suspect AV will get fined for his comments. But if not for a fluky bounce off of Garrison we would have been OK. ANd if not for J'Bow having his stick int he right place Dank would have tied it. We deserved at least a point.


Calgary is a bad team. Boring to watch and pretty beatable most nights. I hate losing but hate losing to the Flames especially when they didn't really earn it. A game where we beat ourselves more than Calgary beating us. But let them have it. They are delusion yet again that this means they are a good team. Perhaps this means they will be buyers again. One can only hope.

That has been my beef with this team for years. They seem to never have the attacking forward or back door pointman coming in for the easy goal off of a rebound.....Thomas gave up plenty in 2011. Quick in 2012. Taylor last night. They are so hit and miss that way. Sometimes they swarm the net and get 3 goals off of the 4 rebounds that the goalie gave up all night. Then they won't get any off of the 20 that were just gift wrapped for them.

He let in one bad goal. That second goal was a perfect shot off of a setup from below the goal line that the shooter put top shelf before Lou could even attempt to get out and challenge. He was caught deep in his net because the play was behind him and he had to cover the near post or risk having banked in.
