Great thread!!! The only beat writers I like around Vancouver are Ed Willes and the Pass it to Bulis blog, I enjoy reading their threads.

I love the fact that our young kids like Kass, Shredder, Tanev have stepped up to the plate and showed they can play at this level. One thing i notice as well the team is having fun playing hockey again, eveybody has his buddys back and they arent getting pushed around anymore.

This is by far the best thread I have ever read on this site!! Such positive and clearly thoughtful statements made by posters. Thank you Go Go Canucks Go for sharing. I do not as a rule respond to comments here, because most of the posts are so negative and thoughtless.
.... By the way, I wholeheartedly agree with the comments made here. GO CANUCKS GO!!

Am I the only one loving the goalie situation? But it is quite crazy considering, can't wait for Kesler to come back.

The only negative is the rest of the division is in the conference basement. Flames fans were excusing Leland Irving's performance on Saturday because it was the Canucks they were playing, i.e. they were not even expecting to win. Listening to the CBC announcers was the same thing, the game result was a foregone conclusion.

So we have to wait until we see some out of division games before making too much of this.

I didn't buy into all of that media driven panic attack after the Canucks lost the 1st game.

Back to back prez trophies and we suck apparently.

Great start for the Canucks. Is it fair to say our first game against Anaheim was our "wake up call" game?
Looks like we're aiming for a Presidents Trophy threepeat.

NOt to be a negative nancy but look at the standindings and look at the teams we are beating.
4 games against top 4 teams the Canucks are 2 blowout loses, 1 blowout win and an OT win against statement Chicago
all of our other wins are against bottom feeders, a combined -21.
once again the Canucks are the only team in their division in a playoff spot.
the Canucks played good games against Anahiem & Chicago but got beat by 3 Big teams in SJ, Anahiem (maybe we give them a muligan for the opener) and LA, who have only beaten 3 other teams.
I'd hold my over exuberance until the Canucks make a good run against playoff teams just below them in the standings

Given how the Canucks are playing right now - I would actually keep the lineup in tact even when Kesler and Booth are ready to play (give them some more rest / break)

Don't change things when its working :)

Without two 2nd line players and playing a rookie pretty good minutes...................he has once more pulled a rabbit out of the hat and we are looking good.
