Bad game. But Petey scoring off J.T. Millers leg/hip was an incredibly creative play. Don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it.

Canucks playing more sloppy with each of the last 3 games, everyone could see it coming but Green. Guys begin to think they are good and don't need the effort as much, not a recipe for continued success. This is mostly on Green for not recognizing the players effort and getting ahead of the losses.

Eventually he'll be considered a player on our team if he keeps it up! 

As long as he is progressing every year I am not worried.  No one thought the Sedins would be all stars after their first few seasons in the league.  Just get better every day.

Could be true, but doubt it... however other teams are not going to take them lightly any longer...

Its all part of growing... as annoying as it may be... 

This being the main reason I don't expect to properly contend for another couple of years, but hopefully its sooner...

I think their Coach Crawford had us scouted really well. And his son does the video recon for the Hawks. They have a pretty good idea about our team. Crow is a sneaky ol' bast*"d.

I think we need to mix up the 649 line. Teams have them scouted and work at frustrating the heck out them with tight checking. We need to free up Petie for more looks and scoring chances. 

The PP nobody wants to shoot, every one is being too polite and they keep passing to the next guy. Take the open shot, always be ready to shoot. EP, Boeser and Huggy have to just put the mustard on it. And let it go.

8th because of the personnel not the coach, Newell is still a problem imo. 

So when its successful, it's because of the players, when it's not it's because of the coach? Gotcha.

Of course, the Canucks are viewed as a threat now.  They're going to have to learn to play their best every game.  They seemed discombobulated to me, passes not connecting, poor flow.....who knows why?  They went from possibly their best game of the year to their worst in 2 days.

 

I expect better tonight in Winnipeg.  Interested to see Chatfield.  Does he get the nod or do we see Fantenberg on his off side?

If you watch the replay J.T. angles his skate and shows Petey what he wanted before the pass too. High level players who think the game similarly.

People still want to do this game by game evaluation of "good/bad".

 

We'll have good games and bad games but there's no reason to have mood swings that coincide with that or make determinations prematurely.

 

All teams let down at times.  All teams with some confidence will need to be reminded not to mail it in.  Although, I don't think that was the case.  Bad officiating, bounces and...yes, play at times and that one wasn't great.  Next...

Totally true.  Just love that guy...he's a perfect compliment to Petey.

I like Green but true. They have looked super sloppy the last few games and just going through the motions. 

They arent talented enough to do that yet

To sum up all my feelings in one play.

 

pettersson dumps the puck in, gets clearly interfered with, right in front of the ref. No call.

same play 10 seconds later, Pettersson gets highsticked right in front of the ref, doesn’t embellish, no call.

Pettersson frustrated by the terrible call, gets called for a slash. 
 

good job refs you really gave those 2 points to the Hawks tonight.

 

on a more optimistic note, it’s nice to know that even on our worst night, the Hawks need the refs to help out to take the game from us. How refreshing. 

I feel like the refs need to be reminded sometimes that super stars like EP40 pay their bills and put their kids through college. The amount of stick work and non-calls against the games best young players is just nonsense. To allow EP to be fouled like that in a key scoring position and then to call him for a slash- not to mention the phantom high stick against Miller.... Stunning really and reeks of power tripping.

Watching that game was like waking up from a glorious sleep where I dreamt the Canucks were an unstoppable force of a team to be reckoned with. And then reality set in. That was pretty awful. Canucks made the Hawks look like contenders. IMO, these games are must win games.  Games they should win. They can`t afford to lose 2 points to bad teams. Well, good start to the season, like last season. Tanev`s injured, that`s new. They`ve lost 3 of their last 4. Time for me to temper my expectations of this team.

There are bank goals like that all the time.
