He's thinking "yes, 40 shots from the perimeter".

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.


Of course Minny plays the night before while we are well rested. Next you'll tell me that the Wild's top 5 players are injured....

Canucks management are in meetings this weekend to discuss the teams situation .. I expect that they have come to the conclusion that something [ god knows what ] has to be done .. they are as unhappy as we are .. Im sure someone will say show me proof , I cannot .. so believe me or do not .. Im not trying to be a big shot .. just a big fan with some connections .

Wild will win this one 3-1.. betting against the Canucks in this one. They look completely lost out there.

I want a coaching change and hope it happens soon.

The fact that we were rested while our opponent had played Nashville the night before worked in our favour in the Detroit game too.

Matt Hackett is a decent goalie, inexperienced, but he's played 10 or so games before.

Canucks need to get 40 shots on goal. That should be goal #1.

this is why i shaked my head at those Canuck fans that cheered on the fLames to make the playoffs... that fan base is stupid as f thats the fan base that still to this day are convinced Alberts faked going down for a call on hit on that McGrattan hit that sent him to retirement. 

 

I hated that fan base since 04 and will forever hate them. they have such a huge inferiority complex about our team and the city/province. I hope we dispose of these losers quickly.

Scoring more goals than the other team should be goal #1.

In most hockey games you need to shoot before you can score so, maybe shots come first?

Hate playing emergency recalls and backups....

If only the Canucks played in a division with guys like Brodeur, Lundqvist, Price, Rinne and Rask. Then we'd finally have an advantage....Just can't get a break.

If one looks at the schedule it's really hard to find any practice time in the month of march.

So you fire AV, hire Lindy Ruff then practice no more than 10 times before the playoffs?

It just won't happen this year no matter how bad it gets

hopefully MG has talked to Ruff and gave him hints that were intrested in his service after the season.. would hate to see him go to Edmonton or even Calgary >_>

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.


Plus Booth who looks like a true power forward driving to the net until his inner Bernier sets in when it is time to bury the puck.......

Its not about enough practice, its about accountability. You don't think a coaching change would get these guys at least using the rest of this season as a proving ground for why they should stay in Van?

Minny plays the Preds tonight, if they win that and beat the Canucks in regulation they'll be 1st in the division and Canucks could potentially drop to 9th by the end of the night

Quality of shots matters more than quantity. The team that gets the most shots doesn't always win.

Hackett is one of the best goalie prospects around, played great last season in his appearances


Umm, I don't follow the AHL as closely as many, kinda check from time to time on prospects, but Hackett's AHL stats disagree with what your saying.

His NHL stats are:
11/12 12 game record of 3-6-0

AHL:
10/11 45 games, 23-16-4
11/12 44 games, 20-17-6
12/13 42 games, 19-19-5

His OHL records were good,
08/09 55 games, 34-15-3,
followed by
09/10 56 games, 33-18-3
so yeah, he would have been a draft consideration.

Looks to me like he is slowly getting worse as opposed to getting better.

Maybe if this team drops out of the top 8, changes will finally be made
I rather lose with the Canucks, than win with any other team

This is OUR year

Last Minnesota game against an AHL goalie we won 2-1. We might have a good chance of winning this coming one, too.
