Matt Hackett recalled by #mnwild with Darcy Kuemper having a groin injury. Hackett likely to start Sunday vs #Canucks; Clutterbuck back Sat


This guy has played 12 NHL games, finished 9 of them, and hasn't played an NHL game in 2 years.


Vancouver has had this advantage a few times now playing these AHL goalies, and won only 1 of them, barely.

This is completely blowing my mind. It's like the hockey gods have lined up every AHL goalie that has an NHL contract up to us as cannon fodder. Guarantee that Luongo starts this one.

Not so much that, it's more the Canucks underestimating, not shooting their pucks "hard" or with precision, often thinking it'll go in by itself - making the goalie looking like a Vezina winner, and future HOF'er....

My guess was a lost to the wild on Sunday night. Not because of bad play, but because another night were we can't score more then 3.

3-2 wild.

Has anyone noticed how many breakaway we miss a game?

Especially Higgins and Hansen, they could single handedly win us games if they worked on their breakaway moves lol.

Also, Minnesota plays in Nashville night before, while Canucks are off for 2 days, there is a huge advantage for the Canucks on top of playing Hackett, this town will go insane if the Canucks lose this one and rightfully so.

A dramatization of our power play:

pass pass fake shot pass pass miss net pass pass miss net pass pass miss net miss net miss net miss net etc etc...

Prove me wrong Canucks, prove me wrong please.

Backups always seem to stone the Canucks, for whatever reason. Looks like it's going to be another close goalie-duel, and our "All-Star" goalies are going to fall short again to an AHL kid.

You must think AHL and Nhl backup goalies are chopped liver ! By the time they get to where they are, they have the tools to get it done. You need to find a subject you know something about, because the more you talk about goalies, the more appearant it becomes that you are blowing hot air

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

So they're all good? Maybe that's why the canucks can't get rid of Luongo's contract?

Why would anyone take us seriously? We have like 19 ducking left handed defencemen, most of them playing like they belong in the AHL. Ballard is playing rather well, 1 injurred bieksa, and 1 tanev (tanev is awsome).

A coach that has ADD and keeps messing around with line combo's that have been on fire. A power play that looks like ass, a weakened penalty kill.

90% of what is wrong with the team is in it's asset management. How does Gillis still employ a defense coach that is failing so hard night after night. How Is Gillis allowing MG to sit one of the reliable defenders and letting constant fudgups from our top4 slide?

How does the team owner let a GM run with 2 right handed defensemen all year and give alex edler a huge ass contract when he's been playing like ass since christmas last year?

not to mention failing to address our needs at center.

Or then of course there's always the Ferry

Also,
I'm putting together a list of the criteria to be a "real" Canuck's fan. So far I have this:

1. I cheer for the Canucks, whatever happens.
2. I never say anything bad about the Canucks.
3. I know the difference between "real" fans and posers just by how they post on the CDC or where they sit at GM Place.
4. I wouldn't dream of leaving a game before it ended, even if it meant missing a train, ferry or a threesome with the wife and her hot best friend?
5. I make 10+ posts a day and I have over 10,000 posts on the CDC, so my Canuck "street-cred" is huge. Go away noob!
6. No one F's with me. I train in MMA. I'm really tough. I'll curb stomp yo' donkey.
7. I make a tonne of $$$$.
8. I'm witty.
9. If it meant missing a game, I wouldn't study for a midterm.
10. I roll with a guy who has a wicked car.
11. I like to post "source?" a lot.
