GDT Oct 22 Canucks @ Islanders Snet-P

Post by Zamboni Driver » Tue Oct 22, 2013 1:59 pm

'82 Cup final rematch - the last Canucks appearance in the Cup Final WITHOUT a riot. :P

Lucky that Bossy & Billy Smith are long retired. :)


Interesting rumour on Team 1040 - Booth will be a healthy scratch...
(Did Gillis get RoyalDude's memo?) :mrgreen:

Higgins returns to where he grew up, look for a strong game from him with 40+ friends & relatives in the building.

And Booth was projected to be one of the comeback kids of the year.
I like all his tools but JT got it right...'one weird dude'

Hopefully Grabner won't pot the winner so you-know-who doesn't piss in here tonight.
I love every move Jim Benning makes 8-)

Regarding Booth – Probably the last thing I’m interested in is debating the merits [again] of David Booth as a hockey player, but there is absolutely no way in hell the coaching staff believes playing Alberts or Sestito four minutes tonight gives the team a better chance at winning.

Torts is the kind of guy who believes in “sending a message”. Booth was reportedly bag skated hard this morning at practice. Obviously the coaches aren’t ecstatic with the way he has played.

Booth getting scratched, hoping that get's him going...one can dream.

The key to winning this game is scoring more goals that the opposing team.

The key to do that is get more traffic in front of the net, lots of shots but a lot shots being seen by the goalie.

I would probably agree with most of what most people say about the merit of Booth as a player at this point, but to me seeing him get the scratch is encouraging in that it hopefully means we will either see an improvement from this player or after a season of frustration from the coaching staff the organization will likely step up and buy him out of his remaining season under contract.

A top nine winger who treads water at even strength but can't really be depended on to provide any kind of consistent offense is exactly the type of role we can fill with an ELC next year, be it Jensen, Gaunce, Shinkaruk or Horvat - and putting $3m and change towards another position in the lineup would be a huge boon to this team.

I like that Booth isn't a big liability out there and I believe he can contribute (and I was satisfied with what he did, when healthy, his first season here) but the guy we've seen this season is eminently replaceable.

I think most people agree that we need Booth to be that 20+ goal scorer we saw glimpses of in his first season here. If he can't do that, then sayonara. Fingers crossed that Torts can get the most out of this player.

Injury to Hansen doesn't look good. Looks like a shoulder.

With Booth not dressed our forward lines are now literally 3 lines plus 1 plus a dman

Daniel Sedin scores in a last goal wins type of game.

Hope honeybadger is ok.

Damn, not your grandma's Mickey Mouse Islanders team...made us look like an AHL team the last part of the period.

Wow did we come roaring out of the gate for this one. :P

A couple of lucky goals for the Islanders.....at least as far as Luongo is concerned. Our defense was brutal on that first one, and the second goal was a really good initial save and then a lucky bounce and bank for Moulson.

Good quick answer by Kesler.

Daniel is definitely over-thinking things as they said in the pre-game. He needs to just shoot and not try all these fancy ass passes with players not named Hen.....and he scores on a shot as I'm typing. Figures. :lol:

All knotted up early on. The reset button has been hit and we're back to square one. Now time to go win this game.
