There have been many games where Raymomd should be a scratch yet continues to get opportunity after another..
His only move in the shootout is pretty weak though honestly.. win or lose its still kind of embarassing.

I wasnt embarrassed.

You disgust me for calling him downright lucky. No way you would say that about Cory.

Luongo stole the game. He made the save in the last minute of play to STEAL BOTH POINTS. The same save Cory didn't make in OT... almost identical position too.

Cory is a great goalie, he has a great future.
Luongo is ELITE. He will be better than Cory for atleast a few more years. We must win now, not develop an up incoming goalie.


Wow. someone bookmark this post!

Obviously your definition of "stole" is different than mine. We'll agree to disagree on that.

But "ELITE"? My definition of elite is the highest ranking one can get. Or do you have another level higher? Roy, Brodeur, Dryden, Hasek. All won Stanley Cups besides a plethora of other trophies. They DID steal games, but not just regular season ones, which Lu has done without question.

My point was I hope Gillis dosen't think he and he alone is the answer to our problems when he returns.


No, but MG might wait until next year to address that.

Anaheim scored, we could be back in 3rd.

thought it would have been that the puck didnt carry continuous forward motion

The rule is not continuous forward motion or you couldn't pull the puck back to your backhand. It's continuous forward motion. The league ruled on this a couple of years ago when Raymond and a couple of others tried it.

A win.. great but you cannot be happy at all about the real underlying problem with this team - they cannot score. There is not enough depth across all four lines to be any threat to the better teams in the West.

They need a proven goal-scorer first and foremost. At this point, the only way to give the Canucks a chance to win is to let in 2 or fewer goals every game.

When your team only scores 1 goal and still wins, then your goalie had alot to do with it. plain and simple

CBJ and Brobovsky have been playing great. But yes we need to score more.

And dude we scored 4 plus EN against LA the weekend before. That was good.

You do whatever you like.. the spimorama in the shootout is lame imo.. not as lame though as raymond and his contributions to this team, but still pretty lame.
The reason the Canucks are in the position they are in is becuase they have players like raymond endlessly underachieving and continually given more chances instead of being moved to bring in players that can actually get it done.

Ps if youre one of those fans that is happy after a win regardless of how the team played then by all means go right ahead.. ill stick with reality where to brutal truth is that the canucks just won vs the worst team in the league through.a shootout.. a team they just recently lost to in the same weak fashion.

I'm not feeling any better. Sorry guys.

We still don't skate the puck into the offensive zone, are just dumping and chasing, and don't seem very quick on the puck. The lack of chances at the and of the 3rd and in OT is deplorable. We need some talent or a motivational jump. I'm not sure which.

Sorry to harsh your buzz.


Was thinking the same. A W is nice and I'm happy for the points but nothing changed much from what has been ailing this team. I wil say thery were more physical than they have been.

Columbus had better scoring chances but missed some golden opportunities otherwise this game never sees OT.

Stillv ery concerned but it does feel better than a loss no matter how they got it done.

When we loss torres that really took our depth down. He is pretty consistent for a 3rd liner plus he only wants 1 mill. Compared to Booth which is like 4 torres contracts, I'll take torres anyday

yeah Schneider lost 2 of those 3 but it was because of the same reason we lost in the finals, we couldn't score for crap


Point taken. Basically wasn't Luongo and wasn't Schneider, but hey, if it sells newspaypas...

Luongo stole two games for us in the Stanley Cup Final. No one showed up for Game 7, so don't try and play that card. He is elite whether you like it or not, and Schneider will never have the impact Luongo has had.

Couldn't agree more, great post I agree on all points, like you I support Lu and I also think he didn't steal this game, although he played well enough, made some real key saves and was great in the shootout.

Played about as well as Cory did last game, this team just picked it up for the most part, although we still have a ways to go if we want to get back to elite form.


Seriously tired of your mindless comments, you are not fooling anyone. Everyone know you are the biggest Schnieder fanboy out there, and are pretty close to a Lu hater not supporter. I swear whenever you claim to "support" Lu there is something negative after it. Luongo did pretty much steal this game quite a few spectacular saves, that said Schnieder also steals games for us.

Torres is actually a better player than Booth, hit harder, tougher, score big goals etc.....why does Raymond make so much more than him.....this world is so unfair....

They really weren't that much better tonight, definitely not defensively. Columbus only had 5 less shots than Minnesota did last game.

Luongo was the biggest reason we won tonight, not even comparable to Cory last game sorry
