anyone has the capacity to learn new skills.
Nick Kronwall is an example of a tough swede.
Mule on Detroit is another. they do exist.
they also did during the Viking era. :-)

Pretty sure the Vikings were Danish... But on a side note we do have a few Danes in the system
Go Canucks Go!

You guys are all wrong we lost the cup because of the following three things. Seriously guys how did you expect our guys to play so banged up and score goals when practically all our stars were well broken. Also if you have an injury and a guy is aloud to continue chipping away at it over and over and over again, and the refs do nothing well....... Not to mention Rome's suspension was a joke

1. Refs
2. Injuries
3. goal tending/AV being dumb and asking Lu if he wanted to stay in.

1. NO GOALS2. Lackluster goaltending (In losses)3. No Holds Barred. The Bruins won the HardCore Championship4. Injuires.
I'm saying Aladeen a lot because http://forum.canucks...dpost__10922428

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

We had no goals because of the fact that Thomas was the better goal tender for one some of his saves were amazing! Speaking of goal tending when your goal tender lets in so many weak goals and you go down by large sums so early in the game then its really hard to get back into it. It changes the way the game is played you don't take as many risks. Also a lot of our forwards were super banged up and just couldn't get it done! If there had not been so many injuries then I don't think they would have had such a hard time scoring. Lastly the ref's job was to make sure the players followed the rules of the game, the last time I checked the rules punching someone in the head ten times in between whistles was not part of the game! That is just one of the examples of the bruins goonery!

Not to mention the injuries caused within the game, Rome got a 4 game suspension in the Stanley cup FINAL for the 3 second late but otherwise clean hit, and the Bruin (forgot who it was) who broke Raymond's back got nothing, and to make insult worse the stupid media went on about how Raymond 'fell' into the boards. Yes Raymond falls a lot but anyone whose seen how his injury happened clearly sees the Boston player steer him into the board backwards, but No call, no suspension and you know why because Boston was the leagues darlings who played 'old fashioned' hockey!!!

Then there was the fact that the media went and crucified the Canucks treating them like they were the 'BIG bad wolf' and the Bruins were the helpless victims that over came it all. Sometimes I wonder if they if watched the series, and I really hope that the Media's disgusting spin on it did not do a single thing to change the outcome of the series but this is the NHL so who knows...

you make a good point.

but how about this idea of watching TV for 2 1/2 months and wrecking your springtime.
when you could be studying things. making a log house whatever.

and then when you're done you just go online and get the game result or else watch the hilite on

canucks fan 127 youtube channel.

meantime you put all those hours to good use.
and you did not get programmed by those satanic beer commercials.
designed by the same types who flurodate your water and put mercury in your fillings.

you know the ones.


Getting the results of the game are not the same thing as watching the game, and really Taking a few hours out of a day(most of which was spend outside at the big screens anyways) to watch a hockey game isn't really going to ruin my spring time!

say there are 25 games we play in the playoffs,
I would like to see Schneider start 8 of them. there's no reason or rule that we shouldnt play the backup in the playoffs, especially if your back up goaltender is just as good your starter.

points it I'd like to see both goalies play, that's what will win us the cup

well you know the funny thing about getting a brilliant new idea, is right away ya wanna start a new thread on it.

isn't that how it works eh .....

so by putting this here spinarama is doing the board mods a big favor ........... less pollution.
__________

the post here today is about skating. like, who was the best canucks skater ever? and why?

well most would say it's not even close. mr. 10 the rocket by a soviet mile.

but why? what did PB10 do to become such a smooth and incredibly swift ice carver?
think I have a couple clues but I'm not sayin, not here anyways. not right now maybe later.
maybe on another forum where smart talk goes down, while I wait for them to approve my status.

but seriously. I see MR21 out there and the fella has the tools. he only needs to finish and he's an allstar.
ahh. but finishing,. such a subtle art. WG99 could finish. so could others. but lots of them finishers were not such great skaters.
which wouldja chose? obviously skating is a high art form, and few could be said to be the best, simply because few is what you use to compare the others with, eh.

skating has many facets. a good coach, say someone with a CAHA level 3 (& guess who has this?) will tell ya that acceleration from a start is a key facet. this requires a good skate angle on the pushoffs and great long strides if possible, not choppy ones.
leg strength is obvious. so is balance. how about the skill of being mobile, making fast turns and shifts, while going at top speed? that is a high art also.

ice vision is often overlooked. the ability to see everything that goes on , not only in front of the play but behind it and to the side.
obviously WG99 wrote the modern book on that one.
__________

bringing up Bitz (& Duco) for the SCP's would help a lot in one key area. (a key area that exposed the lads last finals) when it comes down to pure "Mojo" which team has most of it this year? IMO it's mojo that finally comes out on top .... last year, the locals had more skill but something about the look in Lucic's face could tell you he wasn't listening to any of that .... so what's the case this year?

__________

b.t.w. the whole thing with KB3 and 'caveman' etc is because the other league players all respect that great level of mojo. on the local team KB3 is exactly what you're looking for when it comes to that elusive mojo quality. but ........ it also takes 20 others lads, right? it takes all 21 .... or whatever the roster is.

That's what CDC needed; another AV bashing thread. :rolleyes:

If you want to know the main reason(s) for the SCF loss, go back and look at Baggins' post. It says it succinctly and correctly. Everything else is just second guessing and armchair "experts" rehashing the same tired old arguments.

Oh, I also enjoyed the pure fantasy speculation about the Rome hit. I suppose it was the coaches fault for Raymond's injury as well? Should have told him not to go into the boards butt first?
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I've kind of put ZK highlights up above there.

with this one there's more than that great steal ..............

there's also the hard pass under Schenn's stick ....

Roberto Luongo was the weak link.

No goalie worth $10,000,000 lets in 8 goals. EIGHT goals.

...IN A STANLEY CUP FINAL GAME.

I love Louie but put the brunt where it is due. He, in Naslund's words, choked.


Yeah and he also had 2 shutouts in that series. Without those shutouts it would have been over long before that. He is not the only one to blame.

i agree that schnieds should have been put in more but not because rl was tired. he just seemed to melt down, in the past he actually seemed to play better under a heavy load. At any rate you are right that cs should have been put in. The two reasons we lost were rl and injuries. That leads usa to ask why we were so banged up. We played physical but maybe we werent rugged enough team to play that way, the effort was there to be a physical team for sure but we just didnt stand up.
as great a coach as av is i think he can be a stubborn guy at times. he just continued to play mason raymond over and over and over until he finally happened to come on this board one day and see how upset the fans were about mr and finally sit him
GOD BE PRAISED

rangers borrowed john scott at the trade this year.
matching up vs the bruins, they now have almost parity in grit.
before scott much less. (bruins have like 6 + levels of grit there)

interesting how MG was trying hard to get Backes (st L) several years ago.

So what is it, Lou needs lots of rest or lots of games?

He has lots of rest and plays poorly in Oct. and plays plenty of games in the playoffs and plays poorly when the chips are down.

Just because he is "like our best goalie in like forever and cant score duh" doesn't leave him blameless.
I love rock and roll, just put another dime in the juice box baby.

you can't blame schedule but the canucks went through 3 hard teams in the WC before bruins.
so that's 4 hard physical teams. luck would have it they'd draw a lighter skill team.
(bruins as someone pointed out above.... had at least 2 "easy" series ... that would be Mtl and Tampa)
(lighter skill teams. much less wear and tear ... less physically demanding)

by comparison if bruins draw ottawa in the 1st round this year, their road will be a lot more demanding.
you just have to wish it eh. :-)

___________

I would call ... dallas, pheonix, colorado and LA as much lighter assignments.
with corresponding lesser injury risks.


now i am positive you are clueless
