Meh It's Pre-Season: Mammals @ Fish. 7:30 PST - SPAC.

Postby Meds » Tue Sep 24, 2013 9:16 pm

I expected a tired team, and that's what we got.

Alberts is having an abysmal game at this point. On for 2 goals against, in the box for a 3rd. Terrible turnovers, bad reads, just brutal.

Weber is too small. Can't handle the big Sharks forwards.

The entire team looks soft tonight, San Jose wants it more. They force so many turnovers and recover to their own zone quickly where they give the Canucks zero room to work and nothing is generated.

Lack looks like a backup. He's had some solid saves, but has been beaten multiple times on the glove side and gotten some serious help from his posts. If there are two things about his game that stands out to me right now they are, one, that he doesn't look intentional or purposeful out there, he looks tentative, unsure, like he's going through the motions and hoping the puck hits him. And, two, that his glove hand is a glaring weakness.

Games like this make me think that there will be some roster changes by the deadline this year.

Are the Sharks streaky clean? No PP for the Canucks at all? If we have Albert's and Weber as the bottom pair, it will be a long season...

We saw in the 4 straight losses to the sharks in the playoffs that they are a way more disciplined team without Crowe and Murray, not too mention faster and stronger on the puck. I don't think that's changed, but not worried for there is a switch out there somewhere in the clouds waiting to be flipped.

It is fuuny that when the Canucks have a few power plays in a row, there is always a power play for the other team to even out. On the other hand, oh well... Never mind. The NHL has their own interpretation every game anyway...

Clearly a different team for us last night. Brutal in all 3 zones with nobody winning any puck battles. A complete 180 from the last game against PHX.

The kids looked gassed more than anything.

Sedin line had some chances but routinely turned over the puck in the O zone. One thing I noticed was how good they are on the PK. They are hard to get the puck past up high. Quick sticks.

Burrows looks like he isn't engaged whatsoever. I'll see how he is in a month or so before I worry.

Same goes for Kesler although I won't be picking him in my pool. Doubt we ever see anything close to his career year again...I just can't see it.

Throw it away and look ahead time. Nothing to see here

It's funny, a couple years back we had the Sharks number and they couldn't beat us. We were 7-2 against them in 2011 and 3-1 against them in 2012. Now we just cannot beat them, and are 0-7 since.

Meh, throw this one away. The back side of a pre-season home and away back-to-back...blech.

To be fair, the Coyotes did not dress much key players. On the other hand, the Sharks pretty much had a full lineup last night.

That's not totally fair. The Coyotes did dress most of their NHL guys. They were missing Doan, Ribeiro and of course their back-up played (but people seem to be quite high on Greiss), but the only bubble guys they played were Brule, Domi, Miele and Brown. Other than that, it was their full squad.

Anyway, Canucks got swatted away by the Sharks, who definitely have our number right now. I fully expect a better effort from our guys in the future.

Doan and Ribeiro to the Coyotes are like the Sedins to the Canucks... :mrgreen: Michalek also did not play... Besides Tippett, Smith might be the only reason why they were even competitive in the last two seasons.

I know, but it wasn't like they didn't play any of their vets.

One d pairing and a couple of gaffs from Lack were the difference last night. Alberts/Weber were clearly bad and were on for 4 goals while Alberts was in the box for roughing away from the play and has been a general train wreck thus far.

I like that the Sedins are getting preseason time as they often complain about being rusty when the season starts.
