Why the hell is Bieksa getting a free pass?

And why? Why the Sedin's on the ice for the last miinute when you have guys like Lapierre and Higgins on the bench?

Blame for that falls squarely on the poorly trained primate behind the bench.

Exactly, you need guys who will retrieve the puck and shoot it out of the zone. When the Sedin's manage to get the puck they turn back in the zone and try to pass it out and look pretty.

Last year when Dale Hunter took over the caps he put Lapierre type players on as much as Ovechkin in 1 goal games.

Alex Edler - 28:54 -2
Kevin Bieksa - 27:30 -2

Dan Hamhuis - 23:57 Even
Jason Garrison - 23:15 Even

There's your answer.

AV is playing Bieksa and Edler as top pairing defensemen when they're not.

Hamhuis and Garrison are the ones that should be playing 30 minutes a night, not the other way around. I don't know if AV has a clue sometimes.

Did you even read the article?

"How about Kevin Bieksa who vanished on the 2-on-1, choosing to take neither the shot away nor the pass. Now, to disappear in front of 18,000 people on centre stage is a heck of an act."

Botch didn't pull any punches, but I have to agree with a lot of what he said. The excuses have run dry. You can't blame Kesler, and you can't blame Luongo (which there was way too much of after game one). The top six HAS to step up and score goals ... the same problem we've had since Boston ...

Along with the rest of the Canuck's fanbase?

He's pretty much just a die-hard fan like the rest of us but he's also a "journalist."

You answered your own question, if there was one.

He's a journalist. That's why his meltdown is news and yete's isn't.

I'm not saying I disagree with the meltdown. Not sure why you came after me.

A little off topic but is Botchford Married?

Or has he ever been seen with a woman?

He seems like a angry weirdo that sits at home and does weird things to and with weird people.

It makes me wonder why he'd want to load up for one shutdown unit and leave the other vulnerable, when Hammer - Bieksa and Edler - Garrison would probably make for the better pairing. Edler and Bieksa together = asking for trouble, in essence

Botchford is a douche, always being condescending to everyone he talks to, except when he's on TSN and he kisses Gino Reda's butt. Would love to see him get knocked out and realize that yapping from behind his phone is a lot tougher than doing it with real consequences. He can't take any criticism whatsoever yet he has no problem whining about every little detail wrong with the Canucks... that's what you call a touchy hypocrite.

The Sedins had some good puck control shifts 5 on 5, and set up Kesler for the PP goal by moving the puck around well. That hardly counts for nothing. Edler was terrible, I hate to say it, but I can't even defend him anymore. I hope its a case of an injury he's hiding and not some bizarre backtrack in ability... but his minutes definitely need to be reduced drastically.
