[PGT] Canucks @ Blackhawks

Recommended Posts

sounds like the better team won

nux didnt give up and got a pt.

plenty of room for improvement,

hawks are the best team in NHL now, it's a good benchmark game. Nux are not far off.

season series 1-0-1.

Cory + Hansen + Raymond all had a pretty good game.

For the love of god please put ray/hansen back with schroeder..aka the SPEEDY LINE

I wonder how often cory curses under his breath at the quality defense hes getting

Schneider played well, kept it within reach. Maybe would want the 1st goal back but kept us in it for sure with a ton of saves.. Unlucky on the shootout goal against Kane and the other one is almost impossible(forehand, backhand deke) for all goalies no matter if you know it's comming

But there we go again, if goalies are not perfect in shootout, we lose. Someone tell me when was the last time Canucks scored 2 or 3 shootout goals in a shootout??

I really don't think they have. But whatever still got a point coming back that we probably should not have gotten.

schnieder is for real with lu would have been 7 to 1.. So to me unless defense game shapes up we wont be going past the wcf even if we are lucky to get there.

Been waiting for this game to see what we have.

Well, not the great game we all were hoping for an expecting from our boys.

We're really missing something right now, we have way too many skilled players to be playing this poorly. As mentioned, we had no business coming away from that one with a point.

lucky to get a point with that many breakaways and odd-men rushes given up... two breakaways in our first PP was just awful...

having that said, the sharp goal shouldn't be a goal because the hawks had too many men on the ice and the extra player was interfering with how the canucks were moving up the ice, leading to the turn over...

I have nothing good to say about the defensive effort yet again. Absolutely horrible. Even if they had somehow managed to eek out a win, this Canucks team tonight was about as deserving as a skunk in a "Most Pleasant Smell Ever" contest. The only reason it was even close was because of Schneider standing on his head.

Get back to basics, start earning the $24 million spent on a "deep defense".

We really need to stop messing with chemistry. Put the speed line back, and Bieksa back with Hamhuis. It's common sense, don't screw with what works.

It should also be Garrison playing the right side with Edler, not the other way around.

My line-up for next game.

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows

Booth-Kesler-Higgins

Raymond-Schroeder-Hansen

Volpatti-Lappiere-Kassian

Hamhuis-Bieksa

Edler-Garrison

Ballard-Tanev

Luongo/Schnieder (Go with AV's coin toss)

Absolutely horrendous game. Canucks stole a point tonight on the back of Cory's amazing play.

Refs were hilariously laughable again, and I don't mean just against the Canucks, but just atrocious in general.

A series of terrible moves by MG has killed the greatness in this team. We're still good, but good teams don't win cups. Good teams lose in the 2nd round, good teams get 3rd in the conference, we aren't an elite team any more. We've lost too much ground.

Losing Ehrhoff, acquiring Booth who has underperformed, trading for Ballard AND signing Garrison (what's with this guy and Florida?), 9 million dollars of dead weight on D, trading Hodgson for a guy who might be good 6 years down the road instead of getting real help on the front end, relying on a undersized rookie to be the #3 C on the team, not making a big move to try and get a real #1 defenseman, trying to get size in the top 6 instead of the bottom 6 where none of the players can actually fight and they're pretty small (Raymond, Hansen, Schroeder, and Lapierre with 2 big guys that don't hit isn't a very scary bottom 6). Losing Raffi mixed with Many getting injured DESTROYED the bottom 6 and it hasn't been fixed, mean while Luongo not being traded is hurting the team because if he doesn't get traded this season that's another year to the sedins, less value for Luongo and a wasted season because with this team nothing is gonna happen.

Well, I hope we can pull off a miracle run, but it looks like our window has closed.

Shneider was awesome for us. He at least got us a point we didn't deserve.

I don't hate AV, but he and the rest of the coaching staff have to go. Other teams know how we operate, yet AV still won't change it up.
