Boothy missed in the shootout? :P

Great game in Chi-town
Tough stretch for all the bed-wetters, they must have a pretty bad urinary blockage by now. :mrgreen:

The only real bad game we played was against Dallas. Too bad we let Minny tie that one up and then win it in the SO. that one hurts because of them being conference rivals and all but it was a decent game. I think we had a let down after the Stanton injury in that one. It was a perfect game for saying if only we could have gotten that insurance goal. Sorta like Chicago must be saying now :mrgreen:

I am always surprised when we pull out a win against a team like the Hawks, pleasantly surprised.

I am tired of the "bed wetters" BS what does it mean anyways?

Canucks lose, fans get upset.

Canucks win, fans happy

After the previous couple games, & with Weber + Alberts in, I didn't expect much against Chicago.

The word 'resilient' doesn't do it justice.

The Canucks have been showing discipline & confidence. More than the last couple years.

Defensive discipline, & resulting break outs, have been improving through (almost all) the team, including the call ups.

This speaks well of coaching. Coaching for the Canucks & the Comets.

You and I ... We are in concorde. It seems that the Sedins can do everything else but can't deke a goalie is a narrative that is accepted too easily on a too small sample size for Torts. Another reason I love the new coach.

Yup. They're way past their Art Ross winning days. Only ranked 18th and 19th in scoring in the league? With the same amount of points as the heavily praised Toews? Pffft! Dsgraceful! :evil:

Really?


Highlighting the "your best players have to be your best players" kinda thing... The Sedins performance in the shootout legit costs us points.

Next practice should be an hour of straight breakaways...

At least we know Lack is capable.


This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Trying to teach the Sedins a lesson in a shoot out AGAINST THE BLACKHAWKS?!?!

The Nucks won tonight in spite of Torts. You put your best one-on-one players in the shoot out.

Santo, Kesler, Hansen, Higgins, Kassian .. even Weise.

NOT the god damn Sedins.

I basically agree. The Sedin game is based on cycling and tape to tape passes. You can't do that in the shootout.

Still. I can see Torts's reasoning. They are expected to carry the team, and the shootout is a time to prove that you are a clutch player. The Sedins always find some new detail to work on during the summer. I think Torts may be pointing out what they need to work on.

mathonwy wrote:I discount your theory of the Sedins wanting to be counted on more. Since the Sedins have come into their own, we've had problems with secondary scoring for a lot of that time. I think the Sedins look forward to becoming 2nd line players one of these days.

This is bullshit. Daniel Sedin has gone public saying the reason Sweden didn't fare better in 2010 was that all lines got equal time. He says we need to have two go-to lines that play like twenty minutes each, and the third and fourth line will just have to accept that.

I'm pretty sure he is counting on being on one of the two top lines, so he's basically asking for more responsibility.

For old times sake.

Let us know how you feel about David "Bimbo" Booth! :P ;)



I will forever always be in awe of David Booths consistency at defensive zone giveaways due to his deft stick handling and his high IQ vision under tight checking. I'm just trying to decide who is a better stick handler - Steve 'hot potato puck' Bernier or David 'all thumbs' Booth.

Great game by Lack. 3 out of 6 points road trip. Love it. Although I understand what Torts was trying to do putting the Sedins in the shoot-out, 1 more point in the final standings is too valuable to take a chance. I believe Chicago hit the post in the shootout .

6 place looks better hey RD. Again, sorry about that post of mine thursday night.
