1)Basically the majority of the team not playing overseas during the lockout
2)Ryan Freaking Kesler and David booth (2 of our top 6 players)
3The goalie drama unfolding that is Corey and Luongo
4)So bad at centre that we needed Burrows to play there
This is basically the dream scenario that the majority of us probably never even fathomed. Here is some appreciation for the Canucks who have already battled through some adversity and come out on top!
Interesting note is that with Jordan Schroeder in the line up the Canucks are
7-1-1, Mason Raymond has shown a resurgence (perhaps due to some help from Schroeder?), and Jordan Schroeder has yet to give up a goal against in 5 on 5 situations. If Andrew freaking Ebett were still playing I probably would have lost all my hair by now. It's night and day !
SIde note: It just goes to show how terrible and unprofessional the Vancouver media is with their lack of research when writing articles and reports about players. These people come up with such BS and base everything on Stats alone without EVER watching a player play and come up with ridiculous assumptions. Shame on them!, it's been proven time after time with these bunches of people.
I'm talking about you Gallagher, Kuzma, Botchford, Price and etc. Do your homework before spewing BS and non factual reports. Just piss poor journalism on their part.
Anyways I would have never imagined this kind of start given the team circumstances and injuries. so PROPS TO THE CANUCKS for going out there and winning hockey games!
