  1. Love Burrows, but playing on the 2nd line, without the Sedins creating plays for him, he wont be putting up numbers anywhere close to 27g 50p
  2. I tell ya what, if 7 players score equal or more goals than Daniel Sedin this season, we are fookd!
  3. Torts is the main reason why injuries became such a problem - overuse of the top players and misuse of their skills IE: Sedins killing penalties and everybody else blocking shots. The Canucks have been fairly healthy the last month and look at their record with most of the bodies back... Torts is done.
  4. If you want to just look at stats and not what both players bring to the table on the ice. Man did you even watch in 2010-11 ? The Hoff ran the PP and also made Edler look like a future stud dman.
  5. Sorry but that is just a horrid d-core.
  6. oh dear god that's a horrible defense. Somebody please take away his posting privileges.
  7. Um that is how management in any business makes decisions moving forward.
  8. Say what? you mean with Nonis's roster maybe. I'm sorry but Gillis has far more critics in this city that Nonis ever did. Nonis didn't sign Luongo to the 12 year deal, he didn't extend the Sedins after they expired as top line players. He didn't trade the farm for Ballard and Booth, didn't sign Hamhuis, Garrison, Bieksa and Edler to NTC's He didn't balk at moving Edler to Detroit for that great package and he didn't wait too ???? long to trade Luongo. He also didn't crap the bed on the Schneider and Hodgson trades. Gillis did all of that. I'm sorry man but you and I have different ideas of what success is.
  9. Its looking like we will need 15 wins out of the last 22 games to snag that 8th spot. Not looking very likely to happen. I would be willing to wager that Gillis is having a hard time sleeping at night and probably wakes up every hour sweating bullets. A vote of confidence from ownership to the GM isn't necessarily a good thing for Gillis. Don't forget that is how he landed this job. Nonis was fired after the Canucks failed to make the playoffs. At the time, Aquilini said "missing the post-season was unacceptable in Vancouver" I am fairly certain that the same standards apply today.
  10. Actually a quick skating, puck-moving dman who can hit the forwards in stride, with nice passes; will help the offense more than a guy who can just blast the puck from the point. See examples: Edler, Garrison.
  11. Not sure if posted here anywhere yet but its quite entertaining what the peeps over at HF are saying about Bieksa.. http://hfboards.hock...d.php?t=1585711 Why does it seem that the entire world outside of Vancouver thinks that Bieksa is this monstrous hulk of a man picking on smaller defenseless players his entire career. I mean he is smaller than the Sedins. I guess his reputation of one tough SOB has inflated the perception of his physical reality.
  12. Tanev should fire his agent and hire Luongo. J/K He is obviously trying to get his client a huge raise. If he thinks the money is there for a 1.2 - 1.5 million /yr contract, he needs to read the black and white numbers. $900k maximum on a 1 year deal. If he improves, then they can talk about a modest raise.
  13. Luongo's reputation as a great regular season goalie and then less than average in playoffs has everything to do with the team that hes playing on. This Canucks roster is built for the regular season ans hasn't been able to score in the post season since the finals of 2011. Not only do they struggle to score, but they also have a hell of time staying out of the penalty box and giving up out-numbered scoring opportunities. The guy arguing that Crawford is better because his playoff stats this year and won a cup... well if Chicago had Luongo in net, they still would have won the cup and his stats would have been better than Crawford's IMHO.
  14. You telling me that Luongo's struggles in the post season have nothing to do with this sheepish first line? Give me a break. Dont over-look the fact that the players in front of him always sh1t the bed come playoff time. If we had the killers to step up and score goals, that would take the spotlight off of the goalie. Think about what the Hawks were able to do with Crawford. He is a sieve and played like crap every second game, but they were able to step up their game enough to compensate for the weak goals he did allow. Canucks cant do that.
