Yes. Coaches just match up their shut down line against the Sedins and our first line is done-zo. Skilled players but not playoff performers. I don't think they should get extensions. Should let them walk and sign some playoff performers in free agency


Tell that to the sharks.

The rest of this post isn't even worth responding to, it's just so wrong.

Yea and nobody though the kings were gonna win the cup... Look what they did,
. Shut up


well some of us did. but that's neither here nor there.

I said at the beginning of the season if they make the playoffs they're winning the cup. If I'm not mistaken, they were one of the more favoured teams to win before the season started. I bet a 20 and won 300, so that's definitely one of the favourites.

Obviously if I had bet after they sucked for the first half of the year, I probably could have gotten over 30:1

You don't think the Bruins were playing injured too? They played as many if not more playoff games than us. Plus, they were missing one of their top scorers and performers Nathan Horton when they were playing us, so injuries are no excuse. If the Nucks were facing Tampa in the finals, they would have schooled them in no more than 6 games.


They were missing Horton all season so they had already built their team without him.

Other than that they had 2 injuries. Lucic had a hurt toe and somebody else had come back from a shoulder injury.

The Boston Bruins injury list doesn't even match up to the Canucks injuries to their top 6.

Nothing you've had to say is in the slightest bit intelligent.

So we are just good enough to make it two rounds but not any further. I say if we are good enough to go two rounds, good enough to go all the way.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Quite obvious your trolling once I read this line bout letting the Sedins go. Enjoy your short stay with us on CDC. I'm sure our loyalty to the Canucks will make you want to gag... hopefully sooner than later.

I agree with the last point about the Sedins.  I really like and respect the Sedins, but they are much like Joe Thornton; what you see each and every game is their best (and that's not a bad thing as players should always bring it each and every night) but there's no other level they can go to.

Some players turn it up a notch or two in the playoffs but the Sedins can't for some reason.


If there is depth throughout our lineup(finally with Roy and Kesler),the Sedins wont be facing those hard minutes....Our opposition will be taking them very seriosly indeed,trust me.

"I haven't been a supporter of the Canucks for long. Mainly because firstly I knew nothing about NHL GL and secondly ESPN America only started showing NHL 3 years ago. I was unattached to any team when I first started watching although I could easily have gone for the Philadelphia Flyers as my home team which I supported in my youth and for 20 years was the Fife Flyers."

there were actually a few that thought L.A had a legit chance at going all the way. I think MIke Keenan said that they wil come out of the West.

Everyone ignoring the part that is true. The Canucks defense can be very very bad at times. Good two-way players, but I'd rather have a defenseman who can handle his own end first. Edler and Bieksa... nightmare. Garrison good, but lacks consistency. Tanev has been great. Hamhuis has trailed off a bit defensively, but he's been good. Ballard doesn't play and Barker/Alberts can easily get exposed.

Hawks:
Keith - Norris winner, can play in his own end.
Seabrook - Defense first, but can chip in points
Hjalmarsson - Mobile, shut-down defenseman
Oduya - Mobile, shut-down defenseman

Leddy - Offensive defenseman
Rozsival - Veteran two-way defender (Salo-esque)

Ducks:

Beauchemin - Shutdown defenseman with big shot.
Souray - Offensive defenseman with big shot.
Fowler - Offensive defenseman
Sbisa - Shut-down defenseman who can chip in points.
Allen - Shutdown defenseman
Lydman - Mobile shutdown defenseman

Skill > all. That's it buddy. Stop being so pessimistic, go cheer for the Penguins then. Oh wait, they're arguably the "least tough" team in the NHL. Guess they won't be getting past the 2nd round.

Stupid thread.


Do you think that's why they went out at got Murray, Iginla, and Morrow, three players who are more than willing to push and be pushed?

I agree about Seabs and Keith; however, Hjalmarsson isn't that great, Rozsival is nowhere near Salo-esq, and Oduya isn't all that great either.

As for Canucks, the only reason Hamhuis is playing poorly this season is because he's spending too much effort chipping in offensively, as the team struggles to find scoring. If it wasn't:

Hamhuis- Shutdown D
Bieksa- Shutdown D with offensive capabilities
Garrison- Shutdown D with offensive capabilities
Edler- Offensive D
Tanev- Shutdown D
Ballard- I don't know what he is, frankly.

Edit: error on Rozsival; better defensively, lightyears away offensively.
Edit #2- Hamhuis also has amazing offensive capabilities, though it comes at a cost of him committing to more errors in his own zone.

To say that the Canucks has a bad D corp is stupid; it is better to say that they are playing severely under expectation and sync, and not to its fullest potential.

I would take the Canucks D over Anaheim's going into game 7 of the SCF or any day of the week....other than Chicago's top pairing which is dominant..their other pairings are mediocre although they have played great this season.

he has a point but we will only win with a skill game thats our system. We got tougher by reducing our skill but also added roy to make up for malhotra and hansen raymond are back to 2011 form. We can be dangerous because we have the biggest intangible of all goaltending.

U telling me that after lu played garbage in boston that shnieds wouldnt play game 6 this time? We probably win the cup if schnieds played just because they had a book on how to play us with him there. Schnieds playing in his hometown is money.
