Lets talk about Dan Hamhuis

Recommended Posts

I like Dan and have liked him since signing here but lets be honest, his play this year has been downright horrible.

A lot of you are talking about Garrisons play so far but its Hamhuis who has been with us for years is who we should be asking wtf is going on.

Never been a PP guy really in his career so why was he on the PP for so long(thank god ryan is back). Sick of seeing his floater shot from the point which 95% of the time gets blocked and never ever gets through to the net. His defensive coverage has been awful as well. His worst season as a pro and i for one is pretty sick of it.

Lets hope for a better rest of the season because we need him to play better now and in the playoffs.

He's not in his groove. But I'm not too worried, he hasn't made glaring mistakes like the others have.

Although Garrison gets alot of unwarranted hate, his play has really been coming around the last few games. I thought he played really well tonight.

8-3-3 while missing 2/6 of our Top 6 forwards for the first 12 games and coming off a 9-month break ... and we still have fans complaining that guys aren't playing well enough ...

He's rusty and playing with a new D partner.

Are we watching the same games at all?! Hamhuis has been fine, and I for really like him the offensive zone and think he is tremendously underrated there. Get your head checked, son.

If I wait a bit, the list of players who haven't been shredded in a thread today will be clearer and then I can pick one for myself.

Canuck fans need to be more patient. The team is making adjustments, adding new players and shaking off a long off season. They just need to be in the top 8 at the end of regs. Remember how bad the Kings were last year? The focus is on getting the team ready for the playoffs. I would rather see them playing their best games towards the end of the season and into the playoffs.

Dan the Ham has been shaking off the rust. Overall, he's probably been our most solid defenseman in the last half-dozen games.

That "tripping" penalty on Stewart last night was simply one of the worst calls I've ever seen. Hammer didn't even bend over a little. Absolute GARBAGE.

Ballard and Tanev get easier opposition, and a little less minutes as a result. They wouldn't look as good if they faced the higher quality of competition that the other pairings do.

Hamhuis's defensive play has been solid, but unfortunately for him, he doesn't get to play with Ballard or Tanev.

If there is a slight regression in Hamhuis's play, it's completely unnoticeable in contrast to Edler, Bieksa, and Garrison.

I miss the days when we used to just support our players that sacrifice for us fans, instead of ripping on them after 10 or so bad games...

Oh wait I live in Vancouver and its never been like that... Nvm
