Was wondering how you guys prepare for games where the competition is clearly inferior & there's no star power (in this case none whatsoever) on the other team. To add to it, there is no rivalry present through years of many encounters in the playoffs. However, as loyal Canuck fans we must soldier on and find a way to sit through these games. What I like to do is play a mini game within the game as in focus on one player & count his good decisions vs his bad ones. Sounds lame i know, but if the other team is Columbus/ Phoenix/ Nashville .... whatya gonna do

I dont care if its a snoozefest like Columbus or Nashville or Phoenix or exciting hockey like Detroit or Chicago, I watch every game like a true fan and watch because I love hockey

you're really counting the 2 points? We have played a number of #2 and #3 goalies this year only to come up lame. There is a reason we have 5 loser points and not straight out wins.

Othwise living in the east I live for these 7 pm est games, so I watch them with a smile from ear to ear.

honestly, i don't think i've ever been bored watching a hockey game. even in an exciting game, like you, i like focusing on only one player once in a while. it's amazing how much skating they do, and how little they actually touch the puck.

but i mean against bad teams, there's always a chance you're going to lose, and otherwise, it's always fun to light them up.

also it gives a chance to see more of the third/fourth lines, which i enjoy very much.

Totally! Having to stay up for a 10pm puck drop is crazy, especially when we lose. I thought I saw yesterday it was another 7pm pacific start and I was crushed. Then I saw today it is a 4pm pacific start and I was like, woo hoo!!

Anyways, counting the 2 points as ours already is disaster setting. Any NHL team, besides the Hawks right now, can lose any game they go into, especially the ones they feel they will walk over the other team.

I enjoy games like these because the Nucks will have to hone in their game plan and execute. If they do that then this game should be very entertaining.

Having said that, my prediction: 5-0 Van City! :towel:
