Hey I'm no coach, but shouldn't AV have been more like:

AV: Hey Zack.

Kass: Yeah?

AV: I appreciate you trying to expand your offensive game, but I want you to tighten things up for the rest of the game. Nothing fancy.

Kass: Sure thing coach.


This made my day.....cheers!

No kidding. Give me the good old days of Ballard-Bieksa... ;)


Essensa over Potvin: The only time a Canucks back-up won the starting role outright.....until Cloutier came in.

Shiznak at his best: 

Considering their cap hit and age, I'd still take Bonino over Kesler.

LOLLL... man am I glad those days r gone. There's such a surplus of talented goalies these days compared to back then. Especially the European fusion ... rinne lundqvist hiller... list goes on

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books.

Brown eyes?? Good one, I'm guessing atleast 3 billion other people have brown eyes.

And guess what? Luongo is starting Saturday because av knows he's better and you're always wrong :)

Because AV knows all.....

Lol win a cup with Cory ... he can't even get us into the playoffs the way he's played this year.

You do know that in the nhl to win tthe cup u have to firstly qualify for the playoffs right?

to make the playoffs u have to finish top eight in ur conference... so far cory hasn't given us wins like Lu has.


Luongo is the reason we dont have a Stanley Cup.

Did u watch the game? 6 goals were banked or deflected of our own guys or someone screened him brutally.

Not to rain on the victory parade from last night but...Calgary just beat the Preds 6-3 and gave up only 20 shots versus the 33 our guys allowed.

Curtis Glencross withe the hat trick who now has 12 goals this year ...that's only 3 less than our Sedin twins combined.

That sort of activity would require coaching.

I was saying Lu-Urns...

I don't think Ballard is playing Tommorow.

Meaning more Alberts.

Luongo vs Schneider is the least of this team's worries........in fact, they may be the only thing from coaching right on down through the 13th forward that I am not actually worried much about.

I wish people would just lay off making at always about the goalies.......how many games have either of them really cost us this year compared to the brutal team defence, lack of scoring, and inexplicable coaching decisions?

the problem is the fans are too uneducated in this city to think about blaming anything else but the goalies

Argue all you want about who's better, but until Schneider takes it to Game 7 of the Finals, he has nothing on Luongo.

He can literally have a GAA of 7 but if he makes Game 7 of the Finals, then he deserves to be in the same category as Luongo. Hell, he can have a GAA of 99 and a Save % of 1, if he gets to that game, then he deserves to be mentioned in the same sentance as Luongo in terms of eliteness.

Unless he wins it in Game 4, then well sure he's a better goaltender. But until he does better than Luongo, IN TERMS OF WINS, not statistics, he's hasn't proven anything that he's better than Luongo.

Chicago won the Cup with Anitti Freakin' Niemi. Guy was absolutely horrible, but guess what, he made the stops when his team needed him to. Stats don't matter people, it's about the W in the end. You can let in 10 goals, as long as you get the W, nobody cares.

Totally disagree. Injuries are the reason we don't have a Cup, along with Tim Thomas putting up unbelievable goaltending numbers.

Luongo vs Schneider is the least of this team's worries........in fact, they may be the only thing from coaching right on down through the 13th forward that I am not actually worried much about.

I'd say Louie may have cost the Canucks last night's game. Saves that should have been made on the second Zetterberg goal and the one by Cleary would have given the Canucks a fighting chance. As it was, the Canucks got zero bounces, compared to Detroit's three and without the saves on the two goals that weren't lucky bounces, the team had no chance to come back.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!
