All do respect to Tanev and Ballard but they're not physical enough for the playoffs. Great during the regular season, but Tanev was dominated by Los Angeles last playoffs.

This is a playoff-ready, hard hitting defence that will grind opponents down. That's how you win in the playoffs, not with slick-skating D men who are smaller than the opponents forwards:

Edler - Garrison (both giants, Garrison's been great in front of our own net)
Bieksa - Hamhuis (Bieksa has lifted his physical play this season)
Alberts - Vandermeer (15 minutes of big hitting hockey, grind opponents down in the corners)

We've only ever had 1 big hitting defenceman in the playoffs and that's Edler, last season against LA he wasn't on his game and their forwards dominated our smaller defence. With Alberts and Vandermeer on the blueline that simply won't happen. They may be a defensive liability and not bring much offence, but their job is simply to physically break down opposing team's forwards which is more important than anything else over a 7 game series. Sure we may get scored on and beaten early in series, but as the series goes on their forwards will be weaker, ours will be fresher and we will outlast them.

That's exactly how Boston beat the Canucks (and Canadiens, and Tampa Bay), and how Los Angeles cruised to a Cup.

Vandermeer seemed to be the victim. He didn't know the gate wasn't latched and before he could get off the guy he was set on. After that he started throwing haymakers.

I've been saying for a while that this guy has played on the wing before and we should have brought him up rather than putting out a needless salary to Sestito. Desbiens is also a guy who can play 4th but I don't think he is ours anymore.

How exactly did Vandameer get onto their bench, weren't there 2 guys that fell onto the floor? Did he have to step on them?
Why people read signatures:
  • It is an acceptable way to stare at women.
  • Allows people to have a counter-argument by insulting what is in a persons signature (pooh-pooh fallacy).
  • Allows people to show that they like a man and they put colourful things around the picture of a man(usually a hockey player :P).
  • To watch a funny GIF or a funny pic.
  • Funny Quote or Saying
So I have no clue why are you reading my signature!

Desbiens is Canucks property, Bodee...UFA in July 2013.

One thing for sure, the Hawks are doing a good job of breeding more rats in their minor system. Watching the sh!t that Jeremy Morin (#19) does drives me crazy...sucker punches Desbiens and runs for the hills. Morin has stones made of sand.

I was on record in a previous post where I stated the Vandermeer is not the answer for addressing the team's lack of "pugnacity"...I stand corrected. I love the way he stood up for Desbiens. After seeing this clip, I'm convinced that Vandermeer would make every player on the Canucks roster feel 2 inches taller and 15 pounds heavier. It's time to call him up.

Vandermeer seemed to be the victim. He didn't know the gate wasn't latched and before he could get off the guy he was set on. After that he started throwing haymakers.

Love it. Jim is married to a high school friend of mine. I've never met him personally but I have buddies who have. Apparently he's super solid dude. Loves to stick up for his team mates. We could sure use some of that!

THen we would only have one right handed defenceman moron.. Tanev has been our most consistent, if not, the best defenceman so far this season

Utter utter bollocks. Tanev and Ballard were the standout defensive pair. And if it comes to pushback Ballard is never found wanting which is more than you can say for Edler.

I wasn't going to say anything DUC but your comment upset me (although I always find your posts entertaining) so for future use it is "due respect" not do respect. :)

LA cruised to a Cup win for one reason and one reason only: Jonathan Quick. Dude played like a freaking terminator!

Wonder if they forgot to change his oil before this season started....

Nicklas Jensen somehow ended up with two roughing minors and a game misconduct and he even wasn't on the ice.

That is weird. I've watched the video like 6 times and I can't even see him, so he's not even one of the guys throwing punches or poking with a stick from the bench. Still, it was the end of the game so it's not like it really mattered. I don't think the refs had a freaking clue what happened or who all was involved.

Vandermeer-Pinizzotto-Sestito


Vandermeer is a perfect depth guy if somebody gets injured in our bottom pairing, but he's pretty brutal as a forward. Unless he throws down he's not much of a threat.

Maybe we'll end up seeing Pinizzotto - Lain - Lapierre at some point? Lain is 23, so it's not like he's super young.

I love Vandermeer. If he were a natural forward I think he'd be on the roster, but being another left handed blueliner... it's hard to want to have a blueliner playing the role of deterence.
I'd love to see him get a shot in Sestito's place though - fourth line LW - and sometimes a 7th blueliner in the lineup is actually a blessing.

wow.... rockford is Chicago's farm team......

number 19 of the Rockford fromt he bench started it. Clean hit onto the bench, not sure why the bench door wasn't bolted, he goes punching him in the face Any of you ever taken a punch in the face with hockey gloves before? It f in hurts.


The first thing I thought of when watching that video was that time Lumme broke his leg from the exact same play. Players on the bench have to be more careful, that could mess up someones career right there.

I think that was because they knew if JV got his jersey off he would lay waste to the whole bench.
