A win over the Hawks the way they are playing and the way we are decimated by injury would be a massive psychological blow to their confidence.

I will be happy with any win and I suspect 2-1 or 3-2 in OT is as much as we can hope for just now............but please, no SO's.

PS can someone put a rocket up Barker's ass so that at least he appears grateful for the massive opportunity he is being given here. The guy is seriously sending me to sleep half the time.

PPS Are the Hawks not one of the teams on Raymond's asskick list? Let's hope so.


LOL no. Huge overestimation of the effect of a loss. They'll just shrug it off and move on. If this was a 82 game season, they're on pace to finish with single-digit losses. Unreal team and their psyche won't even budge with a loss. Give credit where it's due.

If Higgins is back tonight we'll actually have all our expected forwards back in the lineup & 3 games left for all 4 lines to play together.

Interested to see what the combinations are.


Missing Booth.

Not that it's a surprise, but Schneider starts.

[/color][/font][/color]


I like the kid's attitude. Also, given our defensive pairings, it's safe to say Hamhuis and Garrison will play 25+ minutes, and Edler also around that mark. One of two things (or both) must happen for us to win the game tonight.

A - Corrado excels against the best team in the NHL and plays 20+ minutes

or

B - Schneider steals this game despite defensive lapses by 2nd and 3rd pairings

IF Corrado excels, then that's only one pairing out there that will be questionable, which isn't too bad. IF he doesn't excel but meets expectations (15-16 minutes) then Schneider will seriously have to play lights out to win against the Blackhawks.

BAD MOVE!!!

BAD FING MOVE

HAHAHA ANOTHER INJURED MORON ON OUR TEAM

HE WILL JOIN US IN 2019

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

I think Booth is still out.

Sedin Sedin Burrows
Raymond Kesler Higgins
Kassian Roy Hansen
Booth Lapierre Weise
Schroeder


That's why I said "expected forwards back"
Booth isn't expected back for the playoffs (1st round anyway)

So we have all of our forwards available who might be dressing game 1 & Ebbets still in the lineup.
Didn't see that one coming.

Best of luck to Corrado! I'm not expecting a whole lot from him but it is nice to see a couple young prospects get sprinkled in our lineup this year.

With the salary cap going down next year, all teams will need to use young players, so Corrado, Jensen,and Schroeder will be a big part of our immeadiate future.

IMHO some youthful excuberance may be what this stale group of vets needs going foward!

sorry to say but I think the Hawks are going to Pound the Canucks tonight. The only chane of us winning is if Schneider played like he did on Saturday. Black Hawks outshoot Vancouver 41 21 on route to a 4-0 win.

Now this is interesting. You use gay in a derogatory situation, while having an openly gay person in both your sig and profile pic.

Should be a great game tonight. I predict it will go to OT/SO. Hoping Crawford can bust out of his slump. Good luck to the Nucks but GO HAWKS!

I was also curious about that little bit of wilful ignorance.
Decided to leave it alone given that this is an internet forum.

Back on topic: looking forward to the game tonight. If the second unit lines up as expected - Higgins, Kesler, Roy - we should have a pretty potent front 6.

Good luck to Frankie in his debut.

Weise is a healthy scratch tonight. Sestito will play. Also more Wolves will be brought up shortly. #canucks


GOING TO BE SOME BAD BLOOD TONIGHT BOYS


Loving the balance on these lines. Kassian will get some shifts with the twins after the PK as well.
Corrado's confidence in his pre game interviews is awesome...

Oh we played lights out defensively...and get really lucky.

I'm hoping we can surprise them and then they fumble the game.

Well, that was quite ignorant of me. I definitely didn't mean it in a bad way, was basically trying to express my disappointment that I couldn't go tonight. Considering it was front row seats too :(. I used the wrong word, and that was my mistake. Thanks for pointing that out though, and I feel incredibly stupid.

Hawks havent faced near the adversity the Canucks have... injury wise!!..Great regular season record by the Hawks,but adds up to squat once the playoffs start...You make it sound like the Hawks are some sort of dynasty team playing a bottom feeder.

I didn't want to make a thread, and since 200+ people read this thread. I wanted to know.

Are we allowed to call up players when the playoffs start? Not to play exactly, but just to show them the feel of the playoffs and all. If we are allowed, who do you think we would/should call up?

ps. If anyone is wondering why I say "we" don't ask, its just something I've been doing for years.

Nothing like getting your excuses in before the game. If the Hawks get dumped the way the Canucks are playing just now they should feel ashamed.............not to mention extremely worried.


This game means nothing to the Hawks. Worried? You actually think the Nucks can take the Hawks in a series?

No roster limits after the trade deadline, no call up limits once the Wolves season ended yesterday.
Everyone from the wolves with an NHL contract should be here asap.
