Meh, just go with the hot hand. I think the defense is too porous for any goalie to look consistent.

I'm very happy that Nilsson's getting the start. He deserves it and I'm Green is now being consistent with his way of coaching. I'm excited for our goaltending situation this season and the internal competition that will exist.

Our defense is actually pretty good.  Marky let us down with bad goals those games he played.  Having the GIANT Nilsson in nets, will breed confidence within the team.

I think the team had good defense last night and against the Oilers in our opener. Marky was definitely at fault a lot in his last game, but the prior games had some bad defense too.

After that rough outing in Boston Nilson's stats had a major rebound.

 

He now has a 1.84 GAA and a .949 SV%,

For some reason I have more confidence with Nilsson in net. Maybe it is because he doesn't consistently let in a bad goal a game like Markstrom.

Canucks goaltender Anders Nilsson sits down with Canucks TV for an exclusive interview where he discusses what it means to play 'the right way'.

He was playing great, then came the baby, big change, could effect concentration, I'm thinking he'll come back around and start playing better again.

He had a tough year but it seems he is getting "right" again at WHC.    Noticed today's game how much better his angle game was.   He LOOKED like the freak of nature big dude he is with great reflexes and ability to read the play.   If this Nilsson shows up for the Canucks next year, it could mean quite a few extra points for the team.

I wonder if the Canucks would let him wear his Team Sweden jersey in net? lol  I find that Europeans seem to play better when representing their countries.

That would be nice to see. He started the year looking like a brick wall. But as the year went on and his confidence shrunk so did his stance. He started a nasty habit of rouding his shoulders in when making saves... when he should have his shoulders up, square with the shooter. I'm not a goalie, but it's just something I remembered. He looked small when he started doing that, I couldn't understand why he was making himself smaller (or how a guy that large could look that small in net), when for the size he is should be playing the "brick wall" style that he played so well at the start of the year...with your background did you notice the same thing as I did?
