Nowhere to be found for games 1, 3 and 4 when Reimer let in 4 and wasn't good. Funny that.

Just passing through the neighborhood again, Tant

Reimer did something last night that neither one of our elite goaltenders did in the 4 losses to the San Jose Sharks...he stole a game. ISN'T PAID TO, like our two goalies are, BUT HE STOLE A GAME nonetheless

Actually if it wasn't for Reimers poor play in a couple of those games, The Laughs would be through to the next round.

The Sedins have plateaued and have proven that they do NOT and will never have the ability to kick it up a notch, Kesler's injuries have pretty much made him a shadow of his former self, Edler's lost in the forest looking for a way out and the jury is still out on Schneider.

We are so far away from being a SC contender it ain't even funny.

*big sigh*

:(

It was not an anomaly, as proven by the 2011/12 president's trophy. The Canucks had the best skilled team in the NHL for two years running. Unfortunately, with the refs conveniently forgetting the rules of hockey during the playoffs, skill doesn't seem to be enough to win the cup. The league had declared they were cracking down, that hockey should be cleaner, etc, but apparently they only meant during the regular season.

Gillis now has to rebuild the team to fit not just the official rules, but the unofficial ones used during the playoff.
As mentioned by Spock, Doc and the rest of the flock, that probably will have to include an increase in assholiness.

Brilliant game by Grabner, he almost won it on OT.

i think we did well on the Grabner deal...we gave up a roster player and a first round pick for a guy who gets 4+ million to sit on the bench as a healthy scratch...great deal for us gillis...i pray that players agent mike gillis gets canned very soon...so we can get a GM who knows hockey...

Or we gave up a waiver-wire player and a first-round pick that has yet to score an NHL point for a mobile d-man that got bumped due to free-agency and was never trusted by the coach?

It's probably somewhere in the middle. :lol:

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

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

It's a 7 game series now!

Another outstanding game by Reimer.

As much as we ragged on some of our guys for being playoff no-shows.....Getzlaf, Ryan, and Perry, have been completely invisible outside of one rush by Perry tonight in game 7.

Howard has looked shaky on plenty of shots. But it's 3-1 Detroit.
