My Tim Horton's keys to the SERIES

- lots of poke checks by whoever is between our pipes

- lots of Power Point slapshots from the point

- Keep head up for Torres

Yours keys?

The Canucks are going to get slaughtered if their performance in the entire month of April is to be replicated against the Sharks. And it probably is.

San Jose has a weak defense, so you have to attack that with lots of speed and puck possession. Speed is key.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Play a physical game against their defence. They are not exactly "weak" but not as strong as the Canucks

Stuart age 33,
Hannan age 34
Boyle age 36, and all members of their top 4 d core. Keep hitting away at their defence and wear em out good.

Oh yea, Protect Schneider at all costs. He cannot get hurt under any circumstances. Or else we fracked.

Stuart, Hannan, Boyle all have glaring weaknesses. They will break down against faster players and it'll be up to Hansen, secondary scoring to get them.Vlasic - Braun as shut down will probably be match up to the Sedins. Kesler will probably be tied to Thornton, which could present some problems, especially with the way Burns has played. Depth will be key, and the Canucks are desperately lacking a 3rd line center.


Niemi has made them(their defense) look much better than they are, this year.

SJ's defense is pretty weak so just let the Sedins do what the Sedins do. Kesler can shut down whichever one of their guys happens to step up, Thornton will shut himself down for no apparent reason, and the stanchion will bail us out of any trouble. Nucks in 5 guys.

That may work, but judging from the last few games, I doubt Roy drops to the 3rd line.

After that, It's Lap, Ebett, and Schroeder. Better hope Lapierre wakes up for the playoffs, and Schroeder takes Ebett's place. Still not overly impressive. Better off having Malholtra....

Ok seriously tho, kesler vs thornton, sedins vs couture, hamhuis and garrison vs thornton, bieksa and edler vs couture, speed and very aggressive, lots of hits, forecheck hard, always pressuring the player with the puck and lots of shots and drive the net for rebounds
