Congrats to new daddy Roberto Luongo, who must be exhausted, but he looked sharp on the Koivu break. What an emotional last couple days it must have been for Lui.
Unfortunately though, he must buckle down now because all of B.C. is relying on him to put the Canucks on his shoulders and march them into the playoffs. And if they don't make it, people will forever question how this whole pregnancy has affected him.
Times like these I feel that I wasted my money buying NHL Centre Ice Online. What an absolutely disgusting period to watch when our backs are to the wall. Our defence is completely leaving Luongo high and dry and our passing was terrible. We coughed it up numerous times just trying to get it out of our zone.
This team has got to be tired and lacking confidence. This schedule is brutal. But even with our injuries there are absolutely NO excuses for a period that is that bad from this team.
At least Naslund seemed to have some jump in that period. One of our few players outside of Luongo who has seemed to have shown up. We can't wait to get back home to get the ball rolling on making the playoffs. Even if we rebound and have two strong periods we can build from this when we get back home.
It is looking like some of our players have given up on themselves and the team. Disgusting.
This is perfect!!! I couldn't ask for a better start!!! The Canucks under A.V's pathetic coaching style and Nonis's painfully stupid gm' ing are going to have a late season meltdown and miss the playoffs!! Excelent!! Hope fully we can close this no talent chapter and start over next year!!!
Anyone notice the best player for Vancouver tonight is Naslund? You know the only player on this whole team with any God given skill.
I think I'm going down to the bar and punch out any Keseler and Burrows fans.
After that first period, we are lucky to only be down 2-0. Our defence has been terrible these past few games. We can't blame that just on Luongo. Did you not see how Koivu made Mitchell look like a pylon on that play?
