  1. Miller is our $6M dollar man. If he is ready he will get the start. Lack has played well down the stretch but he's only got 82 games of NHL regular season experience and zero experience in playoff games. Miller on the other hand has a proven track record in the playoffs and he's being paid to be the number one, not sit on the bench, so he will play.
  2. Prediction: LA wins all 5 of their remaining games ending with 100pts Calgary goes 2-2 ending with 95pts Van goes 2-2 ending with 99pts and third in the Pacific slated to play LA in the first round. I hope this doesn't happen but looking at LA's schedule I think they can steam roll all those teams (Canucks included) Whether Calgary makes it or not will depend on how the Jets and Wild do.
  3. Cool story bro, but you're reading way too far into WD's motivations and making a lot of assumptions. WD has said that guys that play well (in their role) get rewarded with more ice time. Guys that don't get benched. Obviously the Vrbata/ Bonino/ Higgins line is going right now so they're getting more ice time. The twins have gone cold so they're getting less. I can assure you that if the twin line was putting up points and winning hockey games for us right now WD wouldn't be 'resting' them.
  4. Kassian was a total no show tonight. He looked invisible out there. When is WD going to give him some top 6 minutes to aid in his development?
  5. I say don't wear them simply because they are ugly. They may have been cool 100 years ago (maybe) but in this day and age the striped arms and beige hockey pants just look tacky.
  6. Are you guys kidding me? Clearly Clendening > Forsling. He is going to be the face of the franchise in a very short time. Give him 3 games and he'll be wearing the 'C'. you can quote me on that. The only question is whether we retire his number now or wait a few more years....
  7. The OP makes some valid points. I noticed a definite decline in the twins play last season. I'm not prepared to throw them out with the bath water just yet though. I think it would be in the clubs best interest to sign them to a 1 year deal and then reevaluate after another season, rather than signing them to a 2-3 year deal. It might make them work a bit harder to get another extension if they really want to stay in Vancouver and it will also be beneficial to all the young up and comers. Henrik and Daniel are such classy players with an enormous skill set. They can teach the young prospects a lot about how to play the game. Think of what a benefit it was to have Kesler play with Sundin. I think Hank and Dank will provide leadership and be fine role models for the new guys. ...and you never know. A young and eager group of guys with a few talented veterans could make a run deep into the playoffs and surprise everyone....they just need better goaltending...but that is for another thread.
