GDT: Canucks @ Stars

Postby herb » Thu Dec 19, 2013 3:53 pm

All of a sudden a pretty great looking defensive group has both Yannik Weber and Andrew Alberts dressing for a real NHL game. All I can think about is Alberts face and Chelsea Dagger playing over and over again.

The Frankie Corrado countdown begins tonight. Thankfully we don’t play the Blackhawks until tomorrow night. Say, didn’t Frankie play his first NHL game against the Hawks last year and look pretty good in doing so?

Anyway,

Puck Drop: 5:30 PST
TV: Sportsnet Pacific
Radio: Team1040

Watch out for RD tonight if the Stars win and Connauton, Nichushkin or Roussel play well.

...or Benn cuz we didn't draft him...

Oh wait, was that the cheeseburgler?

...or Seguin cuz a better gm would've traded schneider for him instead of that bum Horvat...

Or...insert any player or combination of players drafted anywhere else that have shown the slightest glimpse of promise or success...

On the bright side, Dallas’ defense actually looks worse than ours and Lehtonen’s numbers have been sliding. He has let in three or more goals in each of his last six starts, for 23 goals against in total over that span.

Benn-Gonchar

NNichushkin looks like a beaut. This could end up being Gillis Kopitar miss. Lets hope that Horvat doesn't buy a rice rocket.

Nich does look good, but he's playing with Benn and Seguin, who have been one of the best 1-2 combo's in the league this season.

Hamhuis is just shit offensively of late. Kassian set him up perfectly and he wires it into Lehtonen's mask. You gotta at least try for a corner or side when you have that much time.

Hansen's finishing skills are a showcase for this team in general right now.

Nice save Luongo. Two games in a row and two brutal goals. If he is starting tomorrow regardless if the team pulls this out of the fire, there are some serious issues with this club. Make the guy earn the fucking spot instead of gifting hime every start. Roberto has been fairly solid for the most part but he could use a rest. He isn't getting any younger .

Complete garbage change and the failure by a couple of players to get the puck deep on the first goal. No idea why Torts thought it was a good idea to put the 4th line out right after that. Stupid coaching move right there.

Kassian has been barely noticeable tonight. Probably scared shitless of Roussel. It was Roussel that totally bootfucked him last year wasn't it ? :baaa:

If Lu starts tomorrow then we know who is the boss of the team. And it aint Gillis, Torts or the wops.

4 goals too late. This means Luongo will star tomorrow. Although John and John say no.
