Is it me or is he continuing to improve to the level of last year when he got Selke consideration. He's playing his best hockey in a year. Suddenly I'm optimistic about the playoffs even though Daniel is still hurt.

He had a few great scoring chances tonight. Would have felt good for him to slot one.

As I've said before, Manny Malhotra as our 4th line centre? I will take that any day of the week. Now lets gets Daniel, Bally and Bitz back in the line up and we're GOLDEN!

Malholtra's problems don't connect with his eye injury.. It's the aftermath of the eye injury. He had little to no time for conditioning for the 2011-12 season. He's finally starting to get used to things again.

Not a lot of 4th line centers are B)

2nd line centers on the other hand... :towel:

I love manny... And he is incredible to have on the fourth line!
Our depth is unbelievable!

Manny is a great 3rd line center but plays on the fourth here.... Higgins is a top 6 caliber player... Kesler is a number 1 caliber center... Booth could be top line on some teams... Ballard was a top 2 PPQB on another team, Salo is a number 2 caliber dman, so is Hamhuis, Edler is #1 Caliber, Bieksa is #3 caliber, Tanev is arguably top 4 ready, Schneider is a number 1 goalie. So much depth!!!!!

He's had a couple of good games lately but his vision is still affecting him. For example; his givaway on McLeod (I think). He was just skating straight up and didn't even know Mcleod was right behind him.

I didn't realize the eye in the back of his head got injured last year as well.

if his vision was that bad he wouldn't be playing - he can see and his vision does not affect him one bit.
He's late in conditioning and getting used to playing again.

he'll be a solid playoff performer - do not blame his eyesight for dumb mistakes -

he's still one of the best in the league at faceoff's

and agree'd he does not have eyes in the back of his head.

just liek a lot of canucks players - he's had a tough time this year and he's starting to turn it aroudn
just like hansen and everybody else./

Jeez man, is he the only player on our team who has given up the puck like that? On your opinion, half our team would be lining up at Specsavers. Get real and stop looking to stigmatise the man with faulty vision.

I do believe the Canucks have their own ophthalmologists who will have carried out plenty of tests and checks on Manny's eyes.

What is it with CDC that every time they want to criticise a player they compare him to some fictitious PERFECT PLAYER.

Here's a free one for you. The next time you see one of our players fail your perfectionist test, ask yourself if you've seen any of our other players do the same thing. Unless you have the memory of a budgie, I'm sure you will think of a few.

Edit: Manny is a warrior...........He has already scored two of the best goals I have seen from a Canuck this season. One of them could only have been scored by a player with perfect vision.

He should be able to return to the Manny of old as long as he's given the opportunity to. He's been skating well of late and gets his chances. Hopefully he'll start burying a couple more and life will be good.

Ive thought there was something else wrong with Manny. HIs vision shouldnt affect his play or he wouldnt be playing. (at least not to the degreee his play has dropped off) and does it really take all season to get into game shape if you come to camp out of shape?

I firmly believe that most players who suffer a serious injury are a little tentative for awhile upon their return. Requires a bit of an easing in and many will have lost a step or two, as well as being a bit cautious at first. Both conditioning and psychologically related stuff to shake off. He's had a lot to work through and the fact that he was off for personal issues also indicates that he hasn't had an easy time over the recent past.

The thing that helps Manny bounce back is the fact that he is such a dedicated team player/leader and will work hard to contribute vs just being happy to be there. He looked more confident and he had some jump last night...good to see. Was also very solid on f/o's and we all know his importance in that aspect of things.

99% of the people that write on these blogs would have packed it in and collected disability after suffering an injury like Malhotra did. His heart and determination is inspiring. I hope that after Henrik hands the cup to Daniel it gets handed to Malhotra.

Henrik
Kesler
Hodgson
Pahlsson
Malhotra
Lapierre
Ebbett
Reinprecht
Schroeder
Bitz (playing centre with the wolves right now)

Seriously, it's no Crosby-Malkin-Staal, but this has got to be one of the deepest rosters for centres.

I thought you were referring to something in his back. I'm glad his back is fine, I was worried he hurt it or something. Your title is very misleading, the use of apostrophies changes your intent.

Things take time to adjust. Just look at Mattias Ohlund. He had issues as well.. and possibly still does.
