seeing coho with with lappy and duco drew ????? with me.

Im ok with having lappy there but duco really?

Coho has great offensive upside. He can shoot and he has tremendous vision. Atleast give him 1 guy who can do the same on his line. Not to checkers.

Exactly.

Put this guy with some real players he'll start getting points. Hes got the vision and a great shot.

Doesn't matter, 1 game shouldn't take away the month he put together, not to mention the whole season as well...


Hodgson is going good. Malhotra is not. It makes sense to get Malhotra going so that we have 4 good lines... no?? Hodgson will still be getting plenty of icetime and PP time. I think you might be over-reacting. Its not like he is playing with absolute scrubs. Our 4th line is as good or better than alot of 3rd lines out there.

Cody was criminally underutilized tonight. Vig must believe Cody is some relation to Keith Ballard!

Nope. Never set foot on the ice. Between Vig's handling of Cody and Ballard I'm about beside myself.

Gillis needs to send a message to Vig in the kind of language that he can appreciate. Maybe trading Lapierre and Rome at the deadline would get it across.

If we trade Rome, it will be in a packaged deal with AV. Like seriously, he's on Rome's d!ck like all game long. He puts Rome out on 3 on 3 OT but he won't put Hodgson on in one fracking second of OT. Geez AV...get simple facts straight:

Hodgson>Malhotra
Ballard>Rome

Cody's got great offensive instincts and one helluva shot...Unfortunately,he's a defensive liabilty...For every great goal and pass,its usually pre-empted,or followed by a turnover,or a blown defensive coverage.(against Calgary last night,he scored a goal,and was the goat on Calgarys second goal)
That's why he sits....he;s still learning.

I dont agree with you, i think he has been solid at both ends of the ice. Cody is a plus 8 where as someone like Malholtra is minus 10. Cody needs to play with guys like hansen or raymond to learn. He cant be put out with fourth liners with no skill. I would like to see him win more draws though. That would help his game on both ends.

You know that Manny starts the vast majority of his shifts in his own end taking defensive face-off,advances the puck and gets off the ice as is asked of him by the coach,right?
You realize this would lead to very few "plus" points as he is off the ice by the time the puck goes in the opposition net?

Seeing how he can score a goal playing with duco and lappy imagine what he can do with more offensive players. AV is really pissing me off with CoHo recent linemates. Sure hes on a slump but hes playing with pluggers wont help.

Anyone else agree that Coho needs better linemates and AV isnt using this rook properly.


Just my opinion since i really like this kid and want him to develop right.

He's earning his stripes.......he's got a lot of players ahead of him who have proven a lot more and paid their dues. Why do so many people want this kid to have everything handed to him on a silver platter? I'm sure Cody understands his role on this team........you should too.

Beating a dead horse, I know... but honestly, how far will it go? This is getting totally ridiculous. Cody's entire career with the Canucks has been held back by this guy. It's really obvious that Cody is the only player who feels like showing up against bottom-feeder teams... but no, don't bother giving him ice-time. I'm pretty sure he's only had a small handful of shifts in OT throughout the season, and we've gone past regulation A LOT this season.

This is getting really old really fast. I have no idea how Gillis can stand by and watch this, especially while players that Hodgson -- very convincingly and consistently -- outplays get more ice time than him (cough raymond cough).

I'm getting tired of this business as usual approach that has taken over this team... it's like it's a bloody union -- as if seniority has ANYTHING to do with your ice-time. Totally brutal.

Never mind Sulzer never getting any games. He's arguably better than Rome, and he should not be riding the pine and rusting away. Keep him in game form FFS...

Again, sorry for the mulched horse, but I couldn't help it...
[/rant]


....afterthought: I forgot to mention the 4th line plugs that he's managing to make look good...

Yup, Malhotra on the 3rd instead. He's been playing MUCH better... totally deserves that ice-time.

Higgins or Raymond would be on his line if Higgins wasn't hurt. Mike Gillis will probably pick up a solid depth forward (maybe Moen) to play with Cody.

I'm am not sure if he is on a slump. But he certainly is not IN a slump.

This point has been discussed in other threads. The best theory I saw is that CoHo was doing too well -- all that rookie of the month stuff might give him a swelled head. Therefore AV felt the need to cut him down a peg by cutting his ice time and putting him on the 4th line.

More seriously, I cannot think of a good reason for AV's decision on this. Maybe he is trying to get Malhotra going by putting him in Cody's spot on the 3rd line.

No you're right. The way AV is handling cody is really not good. MG should sit him down and tell him to play him more.

Cody playing against other teams worst players is creating chances every game. What more do you want?

I think it is done to spark Manny. I say who cares if Manny needs a spark when Coho is playing as well as he is at Centre.

Ah yes, why aren't you coach?

AV isn't trying to ruin Hodgson's career. If he was trying to ruin Hodgson's career, he'd do what they did to Brule in Columbus - playing him way too much, way too early. You seem to think that more playing time = better development, but the complete opposite can happen. That is why people with experience are running the hockey team, not knee-jerk fans.
