@annschmaltz: AV mixing up the lines: twins with Burrows, Kesler on wing with Roy and Higgins, Lapierre with Raymond & Hansen, Kassian Weise & Ebbett

@FarhanLaljiTSN: No Cory Schneider on the ice for practice. Kesler is on the ice

@patersonjeff: Luongo joined Cannata as #Canucks practice goalies. No sign of the other guy

Damn looks like Schneider isn't as close to returning as most thought

Looks as though AV is going with Lappy as our 3rd C, and just giving up on the 4th line.
Fantastic....

Can Gillis waive him? This is beyond ridiculous. If AV won't bench Ebbett voluntarily, MG needs to step in and do something about it. Regardless, we aren't going anywhere without #35 in net.

I agree. They cycle pretty good. From the first two periods the shifts where Kassian played with the Sedins after the penalty kill were the best shifts the Sedins had

Because that's AV's idea of strategy. I suspect he's trying to get himself fired so he can go to Dallas and be reunited with Rome.

Not a fan of the Kesler Roy line... I'd rather see Raymond-Kesler-Burrows
Higgins-Roy-Hansen

And replace AE with anyone

Pinnizotto-Gaunce(if JS is injured)-Lapierre(takes defensive face offs)

So

Sedins-Kassian
Raymond-Kesler-Burrows
Higgins-Roy-Hansen
Pinnizotto-Gaunce-Lapierre

Now that is a playoffs lineup

Yup. One game in and we're already down to three lines. Realistically, game 2 is pretty well a must win given the Sharks' home record this year, in which case AV will likely be running the first two lines ragged and throw in the third line for a few shifts. I'd be surprised to see the fourth line get many shifts tomorrow.

So where is this organizational depth that Mike Gillis has built up in his 5 years here and that he speaks so much of?

Again,....Andrew Ebbett and Luongo's goaltending are not the issues right now,..offense is.

In a place where everything is so hotly debated from the refs to the goalies to the coach, etc.... the one constant is the unanimous hate for ebbett. LOL

you can have all the lines mixed stacked whatever..its not the key..just like in any sport money or name brand talents just dont work if you dont have all the hockeygods on your side..you need to not force the situations..it starts with good defence and if they keep the offence simple pucks will go in the net...the game inside of the game is not there yet..you need to know when to let kassian and weise to go after theur players..its about taking shots where you normally dont shoot..its about mixing up the plays and getting into the emotional part of the game...you need to drive the net..players are waiting if injuries happen..lay it all on the line when need be..

The lack of offence is directly caused by AV screwing with chemistry every chance he gets. Him continuing to play Ebbett despite him being completely useless only further illustrates how much of an idiot AV is.

He's a symptom, not the cause; Unfortunatley, AV is the disease that plagues this lineup.
