There have been 2 or 3 games already this year where I thought "this is a must win, the boys will surely come out firing tonight" and have been let down every time. Dare I get my hopes up tonight?

Markstrom has been showing the strain the last few games with uncharacteristic outbursts. They will break him.

 

I guessed the Canucks would get 5/6 wins in Dec, so far 3 so they need to get at least 2 out of the last 5 games

 

They have to leash Hughes, the more he is free wheeling is causing chaos with the Canucks system, the bad part though is he will be very exposed as defensively deficient and it will take some of the entertainment value out of the game, but is a win worth a double axle?

 

Vegas 4th line ate the Nux like they were feasting on Chex, there was nobody to challenge them.

 

About the only thing Green can do is line matchups and change the lines, maybe throw Eriksson into the fray and try to go full trap.

 

I do get irritated when Hughes can skate around all over the place but the rest of the team has to play, skate to the red line and give the puck to the other team and then try to get it back, hockey

 

The players will give all they got, they have been all along but other teams just got more better than them. Miller is good for now, but not nearly enough and the need is for more than one more player. That first will come back to haunt this team.

His skating is so silky smooth and his ability to strip the puck (back) even when he loses it something special.

 

I don't care that he's given that allowance...it's what makes him shine bright.  Green obviously sees the mistakes when they are made but is treating it as something to tweak and not change.  I'd hate them to change his game.  200%.  Are you kidding?  He's a real gem and you don't really mess with that.  Others don't have the skating/puck control ability that he has.

Not sure why we ever got rid of Keenan?  Maybe he could replace Green?

I'm sure there's some people here who would actually do that just to not seen Green coach another game.

This team either breaks or breaks through. This is the stretch of games where we see who will stood up and lead this team back into the playoffs. We need a "Burrows SHG vs Carolina" kind of moment to turn this season around.

Personally, I think the Canucks are going to pull off the victory tonight. Am I ever jealous of the Vegas 4th line tho....size and speed that just has its way when they are on the ice, too bad our 4th line isn't built like that!

 

Also, when will the lines finally read:

 

Pettersson JT Miller Boeser?

 

JT takes all of the faceoffs, to me if you aint taking the draws your considered a winger...I knoe EP slides to the middle afterwards. Hoping Manny can help EP get better in the faceoff dot so he can become a well rounded Centerman for us.

EP will eventually be good on the draws. One thing I have no doubt on EP is his work ethic and willingness to improve on his weaknesses.

We should have kept Luke Schenn

Right off the bat, I can think of at least 4 different occasions last game where Schenn woulda dropped his mitts.

Hopefully Travis takes the toughness leash off and let's the team play as hard as possible.
