Canucks hire Dan Cloutier

110 posts in this topic

You guys sure are brilliant. I guess you assume that because Cloutier is working within the organization that that means all of our goaltenders are going to start letting shots in from center. They'll probably even get the same injuries that Cloutier got. Thar dirt bag! How dare he take a job here!

I actually concur, Scottish. Was he not our best goalie stats-wise until Luongo came? Fun to poke at but he doesn't get his fair shake

His record wasn't too bad in Vancouver, it was the other teams he played terrible on.. lol His record was 109-68-23 with 14 shutouts and a 2.42 goals against average (208 games) with the Canucks.

Then again if our goaltending was stronger, maybe we would have went further in the playoffs during the Naslund/Bertuzzi/Morrison era. Oh well, I'm happy where we are now. The Sedins/Kes are great to watch, guess I'll have to wait till next season though to see them play.... %$#@ Bettman! :mad:

EDIT: Either way, congrats Dan. :canucks:

I agree. However, despite this being a surprise for Cloutier, I think most people could see this signing 50 feet away

Terrible signing, sure some of his stats looked good but how could they not playing behind 1 of the best offensive teams at the time...he was exposed in LA.

It's hard to keep goals out when nobody on the team backchecks.

That team was so aggressive offensively, that Cloutier was often hung out to dry.

We typically didn't win games in dominating fashion, we won games like 5-4, or 5-3. That just comes with being a run-and-gun team.

hope this works out well...

Did we lose someone from within our organization that caused Gilles to hire Cloutier...?

As We have Rolo...

Or ...

Is this just an added piece to the org?

Yes... OFFENSIVE teams are usually notorious for not being good DEFENSIVE teams(the part that would help a goalie)

He's a consultant....so, I think it would go something like this:

Hey Dan, what would you do, here?

-Dan: Oh I'd leave the net, for sure!!!

Hear that Schneids? Stay in the net.

Just realized how much I miss goalie fights. We've actually had some good scrappers in Cloutier and Potvin. :towel:

Cloutier won the first and only playoff series of his career in 2003 as the Canucks eliminated the St. Louis Blues in seven games. He made 33 saves in the deciding contest, a 4–1 win for Vancouver.[32] Advancing to the second round against the Minnesota Wild, the Canucks took a three-games-to-one lead. With Vancouver needing one more win to eliminate the Wild, Cloutier was taken out of Game 5 in favour of rookie Alex Auld after allowing six goals on 21 shots through two periods.

Our saviour is back...

I blame Bert for that series loss. He got all cocky and mouthy at the Wild's bench once we were up 3-1.

? best offensive teams don't necessarily make goaltenders look good.

also, he won't be playing against LA - he'll be coaching young goaltenders.
