Good call. Santorelli was definitely pushed into Nabokov by Kassian. Would have been pissed had that been against Luongo. Too bad though, good hustle by Kassian and good hands to hook that one in.

Re: Torts benching the Weird Dude

Another genius Gillis transaction exposed. I mean no surprise to me but I do enjoy reading you guys drumming up excuses for Booth or downplaying the benching. As the great Banyan once said "Gold Jerry!"

I will say this, the team don't look too affected by his absence. Shocking.

I love this Booth stat - 9 hits in 10 games. LMAO. I real power forward gritty forechecker this guy. Almost worse numbers than his 1 goal 2 assists in 10 games

Ryan "Trigger Happy" Kesler for his leanings toward shooting the puck instantly from no matter what angle as soon as he gets puck in offensive zone totally and completely disregarding all other options in that there just might be a better option like - pass to linemate

One of Tortorella's philosophies that he shared in the summer after his hiring was that being a "stiffer" team involved being a team that can TAKE hits. Something to the effect of, "Sometimes a team that can take a bunch of hits all night and still make the play can be tougher to play against than a team that throws them all night."

Not that I'm suggesting that we should go out to get out-hit.....

Yeah, but we still played like pussies when we took hits. Now we keep pressing and don't retreat into our shells.....

Yay! Good win to overcome some pretty suspect goaltending... but you know what bugs me?

1-4 @ San Jose PP 1-6 PK 8-8
6-2 Edmonton PP 1-6 PK 3-3
5-4 (OT) @ Calgary PP 0-1 PK 3-3
3-2 (OT) New Jersey PP 0-2 PK 1-1
1-4 San Jose PP 0-1 PK 3-3
1-4 Montreal PP 0-3 PK 1-3
3-2 @ Philadelphia PP 0-1 PK 2-2
3-0 @ Buffalo PP 0-3 PK 3-3
3-4 (SO) @ Pittsburgh PP 0-1 PK 3-4
1-3 @ Columbus PP 1-3 PK 5-5
5-4 (OT) @ NYI PP 0-2 PK 2-4

So far this season, Canucks have faced 39 powerplays against, while only having 29 themselves - oh, so that doesn't seem like a big discrepancy? In 7 of the 11 games, the opposition has had more powerplay chances.

Current road trip? 18 against, 10 for.

What gives?

Individual Canuck players were good.

Team defense sucked. Too many grade A scoring chances against Luongo.

Take the two points and run.

So we get 7 out of a possible 10 points so far on this road trip and RD wants to come here and gloat about Booth being benched?

Even if we drop the last two that is a .500 road trip, one that a lot of people were saying either we would be lucky to accomplish or would be a sign of a successful road trip given a new coach new system blah blah blah.

A sloppy game, poor team defence and yet we score 5 goals, by 5 different players and yet RD still wants to be the nay sayer.

Santorelli and Richardson so far have been good pick ups. Long season yet but those two along with Stanton are success stories. Perhaps by the half way mark a different picture will emerge but for now I am impressed with the three of them.

Hansen's injury did not look good. No word yet but I'm guessing 4-6 weeks. That way I can be pleased if it is less :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I admit it, I like high scoring games. Screw defence, screw goaltending. Give me goals.

I know how to send Booth a message, and it's not with a bag skate and a benching. He must be... compelled... some other way.

only saw a few minutes of the game.

4 goals by NYI, were they good goals or was it just a poor game by Luongo and D?

II am more excited that they scored 5 goals actually.

I don't think Torts is gonna put up with the 'weird dude' for very long. Fortunately for Booth and unfortunately for me, Hansen seemingly will be out for a while.

I enjoyed the game. Santorelli and Richardson seem like fairly decent replacements for Lappiere and Malhotra. I thought Stanton came down to earth tonight, got caught flat footed a couple times.

I think we missed the relentless forecheck hitting machine that Booth is, tonight.
