If Pittsburgh wins the cup handily, then perhaps 'exciting' hockey may come back. Cheers.

Godd to here MG saying that Daniel is looking good, and nothing to report.

Might be smoke and Mirrors, but it gives me hope!

The playoffs are going to be a lot harder this year. With a lot longer series

Look at who we have upfront. Kesler, Burrows, Booth, Higgins, Raymond, and 1 Sedin. I can't see us scoring more than 2 goals a game, especially with the way our PP is going, just brutal...

We are going to really depend on guys like Pahlsson, Malhotra, Hansen, Lapierre, and our entire Defence to really shutdown our opponents. We can't allow more than 2 goals a game, or we'll be screwed.

I get annoyed when I hear people say we don't win the right way.There are no points for style.

I agree.Without the addition of a PP specialist on D this team has regressed on the PP,especially and also even strength play.

Sami is good but we know the story.Edy is good but he is inconsistent for periods on the PP.

Bieksa can be a defensive liability at times.Hamhuis is great but is no PP specialist.

There is potential there from the young guys but the team has no standout like Christian when he played with the Twins.

We do have one of, if not the, highest scoring defences in the league.

Anyone have some stats on that?

Included;

Edler 46 points

Bieksa 42 points

Hamhuis 33 points...

And why all the concern over forwards; Burrows has a high of 35 goals and four twenty goal seasons. Kesler a high of 42 & 5 twenty goal seasons. Henrik is a former league top scorer. Higgins & Raymond have 4 twenty goal seasons between them.

I am on record, and have not changed my mind, that we would have been better to have kept Hodgson & got a rental for a physical defender. I think Bitz was going to be just as good for us this year as Kassian. Hodgson would have been a distinct advantage, but even without Daniel we have lots of scoring. We can live till at least round two...

LA win -Style of play has changed and we are trying to win any way we can win them-bringing in Sammy Pahlsson we have a shut down line.

We are going to have to win lower scoring games.

We have to be tight defensively to win these games.

It is a fluid sport and we have to change with it.

We have to learn how to win one goal games.

Spoke to Daniel today,looks good,not a lot to report.Moving in the right direction.

Andrew Ebbett-out there today and practising with contact.Very close to coming back

Keith-concussions are very different.Keith has to be 100% and we have to be very certain.

Byron has been quite sick.Hoping he feels better.We only have four call ups.

Kevin C-same story.Deserves some time up here but with the four recalls we have to be very careful.

Raymond-we never lost our confidence in his abilities.

Mason cares abut his game and is a good team mate.He is going to get results.

We are happy with his results.

College front-we are active and successful.We have targetted certain players.

i don't really get this they don't play right thing. Ya sure a large number of the games are pretty boring...but it's an 82 game season (if they want better games they should knock of 10 to 20 regular season games). If you look at it carefully the Canucks probably have 3 or 4 of the top 10 games all year (Boston, the two Detroit games and Chicago maybe). It's all about how important the game is and who it's against.

Question here: does the 4 call up limitation count during the playoffs? If I remember properly, we called up Bolduc, Tanev, Oreskovich, Volpatti, Baumgartner, and Hodgson during the playoffs (not all of them played though)

How does the rule work out?
