when a avalanche was moving his hockey rod real fast and wild at the few last seconds of a game my heart nearly attacked but then a bikesa fell hard on a ice and the avalanched stopped yes then the bell sounded loud and hard yes that was a real heart stop.


Yeah I felt the same thing. I know and understand what u mean.

Good skating and defense. Canucks played well and controlled the play most of the way. The 3-2 goal was off a skate on a BS soft call to give them a 5 on 3. I think the Canucks played well tonight.


Awsome finally a full good game and got another one on the PP

Now we see the team when we have a goalie playing well, but the team with average goaltending looks awful, and I won't forget that. We still need big improvements, before we plan on going far.

Raymond is going to cost us 3.5+ if he keeps this up, are you guys comfortable in giving that to him and having to play him on the 2nd line? I'm still critical of players coming off contract years.

Nice win though, keep it up boys!!! :towel:

I for one am surprised Schneider started back to back - maybe there's a trade in the works for Luongo?


Maybe. I like to think it's just keeping the ball rolling because Schneider has been lights out.

AV looking like a genius.

What's that Ruff lovers!?

Bandwagoners need to be fired.


AV looks like a genuis based on what? Actually doing the moves that CDC has been crying for him to do for a month? Like Garrison as the shooter on the PP and Schroeder centering the 2nd line between Raymond and Hansen?

Ya, full credit to him for being a day late and a dollar short as usual.

EDIT: My question is why haven't we seen Ballard on the PP as a winger? He has been our 4th best forward after our 2nd line both games he has played there.....:)

Game was closer than it shoud have been. Danny not shooting on an open net and Higgins missing two open nets. Could have been a romp.

Team battled hard and showed great energy especially considering their recent schedule. THe adversity seems to be giving them purpose and they are playing a much tighter game supporting eachother.

Sedins should have been able to shine agianst the Avs but didn't look very interesed or effective. I thought Higgins was the best player on that line.

Schneids - like a rock!!

Garrison Tanev Bieksa and Hammer all had solid games, NIce to see the top 4 shaping up.

When everyon'es healthy, Ballard should be given consideration on the 4th line expecially for the playoffs. He's smart, a great skater and an insurance policy if the D goes down. He didn't look out of place at all tonight.

You know, I don't think Kesler and Raymond don't play well together. It will be interesting to see what happens with Luongo. I think next season will start to sort itself out when one of our goalies is finally traded. I think Raymond will take a bit of a discount to play with this team. Schroeder and Raymond are awesome together though.

Really, the only thing noteworthy about this win - besides the fact it's another W in the win column - was the play of Schneider. He followed up his shutout yesterday with another great performance. The Schroeder line produced another goal but otherwise didn't have an out-of-this world game or anything.

On the flip side, the Sedin line and the bottom 6 were absolutely useless. It's frightening how the Sedins are not only just failing to put up points but struggling to create offense at all, on the powerplay and at even strength. They had a great first couple PP's but after that were total non-factors. I know I'm being pretty harsh on them lately but these are our TOP players. They're not babies. They're not rookies for whom there are no expectations. They're expected to lead this team on the ice and right now they're doing absolutely nothing to contribute so they deserve the heavy criticism they're getting from fans and the media. I really love these guys so for me it's extremely difficult to see them playing like this.

All in all, this was a good victory when you consider the circumstances but we have to keep in mind they just beat the last team in the West. There's still a ways to go before I personally start believing this team will make some noise in the playoffs. Even if they are capable, that will come down to health as well. Who knows when the Canucks will get Kesler back. One thing to watch will be what the Canucks do leading up to and at the trade deadline.

I'm not for AV, nor am I against AV. However, I do feel a change is needed AFTER this year depending on what occurs in the playoffs.

That being said, I think AV does deserve some credit for this recent streak we're on. It's easy to be negative and pin the loss on people like AV, Luo, Edler, Bieksa.... But please, give credit where credit is deserved. He's currently coaching a team that is missing big pieces like Kesler and Kassian. Guys like Booth and Wiese (who is somewhat decent), Pinnizotto who is supposed to be with this team as well. He has taken this team that is effed with injuries and he deserves credit for the recent win streak, as do the players.

Yup. Another game, another injury.

But i'm starting to like Ballard as a forward. At least then he'll get some shots.

All the people who were saying that Schneider was "unproven"... He's been leading a banged up team that was on the verge of collapsing out of the playoffs to a four game winning streak. Not saying he's the greatest goalie ever nor is it a knock on Lu, just saying that he's been doing pretty well under pressure so far.


That's a great way to sum it up. I'm VERY IMPRESSED with how well he's played in the last few games...

Dan Murphy@sportsnetmurph 7m
AV says #canucks F Dale Weise's shoulder injury is worse than day to day. He was in a sling in the locker room post game.


Think we'll see more of Ballard on the wing?


Or Jensen gets called up. Ballard has done a good job as a forward though, wouldn't mind seeing him there for a couple more games.

....WHY? Why should he take any discount to play with THIS team? You've gotta be kidding!!

Because the rest of the players took discounts. If they hadn't, there probably wouldn't have been enough cash to sign him because he had such a poor previous season.

I hope so. Seems like he is having fun out there.

Glad for the W but lets not get too carried away here. I know we are hurting but this winning streak comes on the back of low-calibre and struggling teams. Let's not plan the parade just yet.

Positives: D seem to be playing better as of late, getting star goaltending again, hits seem to be up, and we are forechecking once more.

Good chance to pick up some more points this next week. Columbus, Avs, and the Oil up next on the ol'chopping block. GCG!
