Understand

If KB3 is going to miss some games....Who is his best replacement?

112 posts in this topic

Do you know that if not of KB3, there will at least be 2 more losses showing in our recrod. KB3 scored at least 2 HUGE last min goals to save the team from a loss already. KB3 is our MVP on defense.

I would not mind to see Garrison or Hammer to sit out a game and see what Barker and Vandermeer can do. Hammer looks lost and does not seem to know what to do with the puck in the offensive zone. Garrrison just sucks so far....

Did i not already read Dan Murphy saying Alberts is in if Bieksa can't go.

I'd like to think that Barker would get a chance as his skill set most closely resembles that of KB3. If the Canucks were playing a more physical club, Alberts would step in. He still might as he has been with the club for parts of the last 4 seasons and is familiar with AV's system.

Sulzer was impressive! I remember his first game he came in and played over 18 minutes and looked smooth. This season he leads Buffalo's D in both goals and +/-. An underrated bonus for Buffalo in that trade (I thought he won by getting an asset like Grags).

Vandermeer is by far my first choice. He is better offensively than Alberts, better defensively than Barker and is much tougher than both guys. Barker would be my second choice just because I am curious to see how bad he actually is. He did have 49 points in 85 games during the 08-09 season so he does have skill.

I would assume that the lines will be:

Edler - Tanev

Hamhuis - Ballard

Garrison - Alberts

Do you know that if not of KB3, there would be atleast 5 less goals scored against us!?!?!? and he wouldn't have to score those last minute goals if he wasn't always getting lost in the defensive zone and blowing leads.

Sit Hamuis? lol.

What can Alberts do that Barker does not do better? Barker is a 3rd rounder, Alberts? Barker won a cup....Alberts?

Rome won a cup? Sopel won a cup? O'Brien won a cup? Whats your point? Barker recently got cut from an AHL team because he wasn't even that great for them defensively this year yet you think he will be better than Alberts? Even Oilers fans hate him and they don't have any defense at all.

I'd rather use Alberts since he knows our system and we know what we're getting when we call him up. There's little room for experimentation in this shortened season.
