Just wanted to point out one stat re: Linden:

With him in the lineup, the Canucks have 59 points in 49 games. With him out of the lineup, 23 points in 23.

IMO keep the twins away from each other for now.

Linden should be in every game.

Ritchie should play every game, he can provide the toughness and speed. No need for Cowan with Byron in the line up.

Keep Kesler and Burrows together.

Keep Nazzy and Mo together, they seem to click and why touch past history?

May I also add that Linden is the Canucks' Masterton Trophy nominee for this year?

I would think that Linden is a management material when he retires. Very likely with the Canucks, which makes me think AV has either great courage of conviction or is a penney short of a dollar.

Don' worry Trev he who laughs last

A.V is an asshole or an idiot. Thats the only thing I can come up with to explain his treatment of Linden. Sits the guy out on the father son road trip was disgusting, I mean they won the game before that one so WTF?

A.V also sat Brown earlier in the season in his home town when the guy had a ton of family and friends in the house! The guy had been fullfilling his role to a "T" WTF? What kind of prick do you have to be to do somthing like that to a guy?

Coaches a painfully boring, pussy style of hockey and is an asshole. I won't miss this prick at all.

It's still not too late to play the crap outa Trev. Get him in the lineup (every night) and he will either hit his stride for the playoffs (perfect timing) or get injured. Let him play

Wouldn't really expect the coach to do so as his decisions thus far when dealing with many players have had the smack of personal bias and prejudice. I would love to see Linden in the remainder, but unless AV pulls his head out of the sand (censored version), I don't see it happening.

AV's moves have put us in a pretty decent position to make a playoff spot despite all the injuries we have had. AV wants players who can keep up 5 on 5.

I have no problem whatsoever with Linden sitting. Too bad we can't take him out of the press box for the shootout.

What does Isbister bring to the table that Linden can't?

Isbister is faster and more of a physical presence.

I'll bet Izzy didn't lead his team in playoff scoring, nor lead his team in SO goals?

As Linden proved last game, and as he's shown countless times in the past, Trevor shows up big when it's needed. 'Nuff said.
