We will never win the cup if we are scoring like the way we are scoring now. And Sedins? Were they playing hockey or skating today?

Hmm, and here I thought it was that the Canucks would never win the Cup with Cody Hodgson in the line-up.

Well good thing the Canucks have a lot of spare defensemen. Tanev and Ballard (once healthy), I think Rome is better than Alberts though... Only reason I think Rome gets played in the lineup is because he gives the Canucks size and toughness on the back end. I wouldnt blame him for the puck going in off him and in though and I think he's played a lot better recently too. I would keep him in for now...

He only played one off-season game when they won the cup. Maybe that means something :)

I usually defend ALL Canucks players on here. But I too, am out of patience with Rome. No player in the Canucks line-up this year has been a minus more. Not to mention he is soft! You beat Alberts, you'll at least feel it.

My patience for Raymond is also gone. He is soft, and NEVER goes to the net. Skating laps around the zone accomplishes very little. Not to mention, has he ever thrown a hit?

i think that Rome's in just for the added toughness factor. If Alberts actually got game, he would be better suited than Rome. However, i think people and AV finally realizes how much Ballard is missed, and when healthy, here's to hoping for:

Hammer - Juice

Edler - Salo

Ballard - Grags

That would be fine.

pp 1 with Edler and Hammer

pp 2 with Salo and Grags

I completely agree. Last year I felt that he was our weakest link throughout the entire season, but I as astonished to see that he still got to play a bunch. This year really has been no different, although I think his defensive play is slightly better. He still loses the puck a bunch and pretty much is a plug. TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO SAY WE LOST WITHOUT HIM IN THE FINALS, ITS NOT BECAUSE WE DIDNT HAVE HIM THAT WE LOST, ITS BECAUSE IT WAS ROME IN THE FIRST PLACE WHO IGNITED THE FIRE IN THE BRUINS TO COME AFTER US AFTER HE DESTROYED HORTON. He is part of what cost us the cup and I will never forgive him.

Rome needs to see the press box! Grags/Tanev will be a better pairing for now untill Ballard gets back. Even Alberts should be ahead of Rome in our depth chart.

To be fair, the the Canucks couldn't win the Cup with him out of the lineup either....

Rome's playing a bit rough lately, it happens. We know he can play better, and I bet he will before the playoffs start.

Hes terrible anyone who defends him is a blind fool. Other players have been thrown in Avs doghouse from

One poor game yet he's immune to it all. Absolutely ridiculous

Gregs already looks a mile ahead of him, and he has not played in the last month in Buffalo! No excuse, he getting paid to play hockey, and he has no heart in his game right now,
