GDT: Canucks vs. Ducks

Postby Linden Is God » Wed Dec 12, 2007 7:29 pm

Does the Luongo injury have us all so depressed here that no one felt like doing a GDT?


The Ducks will be looking for payback for that whooping the Canucks put on them a few weeks ago.

I say 4-1 Ducks. Kesler being our goal scorer.
GO CANUCKS GO !!!

The 2 rookies combining for the Canucks first goal looked liked Trottier and Bossy for God sakes. Very impressive boys.

I expected the Ducks to come out pounding the injury riddled Canucks. This doesn't seem to be the same Ducks squad that beat the Nuck's 4-0 in last seasons playoffs. Forget the talent drain with Neidermeyer, Selanne and Penner. Their team toughness seems to have waned.

The last one I started didn't go so well for the Canucks, so i thought I had better give it a rest.

OK 4-1 it was...I got carried away watching the 2 rooks do their Hull and Oates rendition.

There is that better? lol

When the Canucks are undermanned and riddled with injuries they seem to respond with an extra effort I'm sure no one predicted. Especially Linden is God Ducks 4-1 oops!

Those 2 kids looked like Marcel Dionne and Charlie Simmer on that 2 on 1.

3rd period shots 16 to 1....

Prevent defense...we see it all the time in the NFL when a teams up by a couple touchdowns...sometimes it works. It worked tonight for Vancouver.

The best 2 players on the ice tonight were Curtis Sanford who was quick to grab up his rebounds and always found a way to face the shooter...great game. The other player who in my mind played his best 3 periods of the season was Willie Mitchell. He chopped down Ducks heading to the net knocked sticks out of Ducks hands rubbed Ducks into the boards took hits to make a play to a teamate so they could get it out of the zone.

My first star tonight - Willie Mitchell no question

Couldn't see the game, but it sounded like the Sandman was on fire tonight... which I guess would turn him to glass.

I'm back in Vancouver so I actually got to watch the game tonight which is a nice change. On that note, the first period and a half kicked ass, the rest? Not so much.

We're still not getting a 60 minute effort, although it was nice to see Pyatt, Raymond and Jaffray have some chemistry right off the bat. We're in tough tonight against the Sharks though, time to find out if Sanford has the will/endurance to pull off a repeat performance because we'll most definitely need it.

I got5 a chance to watch the game, and was very impressed with the effort! Jaffrey and Raymond didn't look out of place at all last night. I'm glad AV gave them the opportunity to play some minutes. They responded and we were able to roll 4 lines most of the night. Which will help tonight.

Sanford was incredible! The first was almost unstoppable (damn I hate Pronger).

Let's hope they carry the same attitude into San Jose.

This is a very tough stretch physically for the team. I think they just ran out of gas last night in the third. In essence, this is an 8 game road trip flying all over the god damn continent.
Hope there is gas in the tank for tonight. i think the Sharts will take the body early and try to wear them down the rest of the way.
AND, this trip is not over yet! Next the fly to deadmonton to take on the soilers......... :evil:
