our team; especially defence are notoriously slow starters.


i cant believe everyone is surprised by this result/performance. on top of everything, very few of our players have been playing during the lockout (in comparison to other teams locked out players)

expect a very slow start in vancouver.( that wont be all that bad if we can peak during the playoffs)

I know Vandermeer can play forward, but can he play center? I really didn't like Ebbett out there. I'd go with this line up tomorrow just to try and shake things up a bit

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Burrows - Lapierre - Raymond
Higgins - Malhotra - Hansen
Volpatti - Vandermeer - Weise
Ebbett

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison
Ballard - Tanev
Barker

Schneider

I think Schneider should be given another chance. Hopefully the butterflies are gone and he can play like we know he can.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

I thought the Ballard - Tanev pairing looked slow and totally out of synch, mostly Ballard.

THe other 4 guys were decent, a couple of unlucky plays ended up in our net which cost us the game.

Did you even watch the game? Hamhuis and Bieksa were brutal. On the ice for 5 goals against. Anyone who thinks Ballard was our worst D tonight needs to learn to watch the game more closely. Unlucky????? More like terrible coverage and slow reactions by Bieksa and Hamhuis.

The season is short. If the Canucks have their typical slow start they aint making the playoffs my friend.....

Hamhuis and Bieksa need to be taken off the PP and told to play a shutdown D game like they did the year of the cup run. Now they both think they are Erik Karlsson.........

This game has to go down as one of the funniest and schizophrenic games I've ever seen. I don't remember laughing this hard in a game the Canucks lost so heavily. Timing was off, systems off - all the things you'd expect after not playing for 8 months.

It's just one game, lets all simmer down. Winnik scored 2 goals - who actually thinks that'll ever happen again. Beware of small sample sizes. Canucks have 2 great goalies and 2 Sedins. They'll be fine.

we played like it was the preseason,

on the bright side: thought Hansen, Edler and Garrison all looked great tonight. everyone else was rusty, slow and sloppy! put this one in the rear view and put out a strong effort tomorrow. no need to panic people....

the canucks have not won a season opener since 2008! nothing to see here.

And the last time we won a season opener we missed the playoffs.

Only if they go in for Bieksa and Hamhuis. Ballard and Tanev were the most consistent defensively and Garrison was pretty good too.

Offensively, both on the PP and 5 on 5, we looked good to start the game, but as the Ducks started to clog up the neutral zone and blue line, we couldn't get setup to create many chances. Our defence was generally bad, with weak plays and poor positioning, and we couldn't get enough saves on scoring chances to help counter the mistakes.

Overall, pretty poor, even if there were some bright spots. Still, I would rather watch that all over again than read through all the idiotic threads popping up at the first sign of trouble on CDC.

I thought the Canucks problem was supposed to be the second line. Their defence and goaltending was atrocious.

They won't make the playoffs this year. Goalie fiasco, gillis making lame excuses, no 2nd line and a bare prospect cupboard. Leafs make the playoffs for the first time in years however....good ol trusty time machine of mine :/

Bad game all around by the whole team. There were moments where everyone looked like NHL caliber players, but for the most part Vancouver was at least two steps behind for the majority of the game. I'm not even going to mention how Ballard was solely responsible for at least one goal ... er .. oops, I guess I did lol. :P But seriously, the whole team looked deflated.

Our defence was the main reason why we lost tonight. But then again, it was our first game in 9 months. We were expecting it would sloppy.

Hope we do better tomorrow.


It was our first game in 9 months but it was Anaheim's first game in 9 months aswell. They just kicked our asses.
And thanks for making the game day thread it looked great.. :)

Annoys me when people make excuses about sloppiness. It was the same lay off for both teams. This is where it comes down to AV and his coaches. Got to be prepared to play in this league.

I think execution wise the game went as worse as possible.


When it comes to talent you can't help but feel good about Lapierre, Weise, Volpatti, Kassian, and Garrison.

With Kesler back the lines need to be this.



Sedin Sedin Kassian
Booth Kesler Burrows
Higgins Lapierre Hansen
Weise Volpatti someone who isn't Raymond Ebbett Malhotra the plugs

Edler Garrison
Hamhuis Bieksa
Ballard Tanev

Schneider
Luongo


Luongo isn't going anywhere without a fantastic deal, I think we can all agree on that.

What happens if Schneider allows many goals the next time against the Oilers? Does that mean Luongo's status as a potential starting goaltender will be heavily discussed?
