+1 for you sir

He meant that they go back and forth on the time zones 7 times, or are you trying to be Bertuzzi Babe and justify your existance on these threads by your excellent knowledge of the dictionary.

hahahah too funny

Blue Jackets twice, Calgary, Slumping Kings, Slumping Wild. 5/7 Favourable match-ups is pretty good


If we don't even dump one veteran, I'll stop posting on CDC until October 7th. It's that disappointing. - Tom Sestito, June 27th.

I'm only seeing 4 time zones with nhl hockey teams in them. and only 3 dif time zones we could be playing in. so in reality we might switch time zones if correct 7 times but the swing wont be that great loose an hr gain an hr back the next day. hardly a big issue. Lame excuse for poor performance maybe but I don't see our guys making lame excuses.

.....That's only because Kesler isn't playing yet ! Trust me the lame excuses will come ! Plus,a great deal of them will come from his fan-boys.

Sorry if this has already been discussed here, couldn't see anything.  But starting March 2, the Canucks go on a 7 games in 13 days in 7 different time zone.

It is not a big deal has most time change is only 1 hour difference, but still that should takes it's toll on players.

It is a good thing we are having a good start, because after that strech their will be 22 games lefts.  If we're not in good position after that stretch, it could be difficult, because guys might be tired.  Yes guys should be fresh from the lockout but it's still a heavy schedule.

I don't think it's quite as bad as it originally looks.

On three of those time zone changes, the Canucks actually gain an hour, going from east to west. On top of that, the one game with a big time zone adjustment is going to be against the Jackets. If I had to pick an team in the Eastern Time Zone that I'd want to be jet lagged against, that would be it.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I'm not too concerned about it. There are quite a few bottom dweller teams on there so presumably the Canucks won't have to bring their "A" game every night.
