Anyone playing Toronto and mcdavid 8 times a year is gonna have a trash sv% none of the goalie for teams that don't play toronto edmonton 16 times are even in the top 20 for sv%. Put ullmark on the canucks he will have just as bad if not worse record. 4 of the top 10 scorers all in the same division all over ppg guy and mcdavid almost 2 points per game. No goalie is going to have great stats against them 

nope, its a team game. Toronto is 5th in scoring and edmonton is tenth,

 

florida, carolina, and tampa score more goals than, TO, edmonton, and winnepeg. and chicago is within 4 goals of winnepeg.

 

so yeah buffalo has got it harder. ullmark .917% demko .911%

 

like i said before great goalies make the saves regardless of the team, so far demko hasnt shown he can be consistent for a entire season.

the elbow barely nicked him, and it wasn't some bone crushing hit.

 

Lind destroyed a edmonton player and no response either.

 

we trying to start a war?

The difference is that the player Lind destroyed was not McJesus, was a comparable size and it was a clean hit. Larson is a lot bigger than Hughes, his elbows were up, he targeted his head, and only thanks to QH's athletic ability was he not spending time in concussion protocol. Big Mac is on this team for a reason, and it's not his offensive skill. The fact that nobody made Larson answer the bell is unacceptable.

A) Who has? and B ) There isn’t much he can do when he’s getting shelled all night and we can’t score or provide basic team defense.

Blaming Demko for this team being garbage offensively and defensively.

 

LOL

 

Have you seen the sheer number of quality scoring chances the Canucks give up every game? 

 

Have you seen how often the forwards lose their man in the defensive zone for a tap in goal?

 

Have you seen the 5000 blind back passes that leave the goalies out to dry?

There’s nothing more you can ask from a goal scorer. He’s become one of our most consistent players. He’s solid in both ends. He’ll never be a penalty killer or a defensive specialist but you can rely on him 5 on 5. 
There’s nothing to make an argument about unless you just dislike the guy. Which is bizzare on its own.

 

It is. Some just want to transmit their self-loathing onto others. Sad really. Brock is a solid piece going forward.

I might be the only one who noticed this but the Canucks got the lead and played well for the first half. A bonehead play by Miller, and careless, lazy penaties by our two veteran mentors Miller and Pearson gave quick goals to EDM.

 

Yet the solution from Green was to bench Rathbone in the 3rd when he was pretty much the only dman getting the puck out, didnt look out of place in either end (looked a bit nervous though understandably), and playing more of the plug bottom 6 guys.

 

Get Pearson off PP1. Use Horvat as the net front presence, Miller on the half wall, Boeser in the one timer spot, Hughes and Schmidt (or even Rathbone getting some looks) at the point. The cross ice to Horvat has been neutralized now by other good coaches and Hughes cant hit the net. Time to switch it up and give it a new look.

Boeser has been our best forward the last several games imo.

larsson isn't going to get a suspension, because he didn't deserve one.

 

remember how upset the team was when edler got rag dolled by simmonds? you are asking our team to do the same classless thing, larsson is hardly a fighter.

 

what ever happened to writing down their number and waiting till you can get them back with class?

 

heads up people hughes is going to get a lot of head shots, its because he's 5'10

You’ve been a disaster since day 1

Advises players to quit team because there’s adversity. Must have been one hell of a team mate. :sadno:

guess what fam. great goalies will get it done, demko has been improving but consistency is still a concern.

Sad fact is the Green cult will rationalize all of this and pull every excuse out of there butt for this downward 4 year spiral 

 

 

There is no actual Green cult. I don’t see a whole lot of support for bringing back Green next year. Don’t be sad about facts that you are making up.

Green will most likely be gone and all will be well. This will all just be a bad memory.

Not surprised of this considering half our team are AHLers or waiver wire pickups and the other half are our regular NHLers who have been garbage all season long. 

 

If we're going to play AHLers can we at least play Juolevi and start sorting out our defence for next season? Want to see a rookie with an experienced guy on each pairing to end the season.

 

Clearly Covid and the Virtanen fiasco is taking its toll on the team, we are a sloppy mess just the way we were to start the season. I worry it's more than that though - some of this bad defending (and terrible no-look passes by Miller) have been there all year long. It's Green's job to smack it out of the players but he hasn't done that and they continue making stupid mistakes, but also the player's faults themselves.

 

A lot needs to change in the off-season, hopefully the players will rest and train well for a full regular season because if we miss the playoffs next year heads have to roll.

So sit Edler in favour of Juolevi?  I would be okay with that.  

 

I actually thought that most of our team played a good game tonight.  Not sure if you watched or just skimmed the scoreboard, but outside of that terrible terrible sequence by Miller where he was directly/indirectly involved in all four of their goals (that's game set match), we had a lot of good performances tonight especially out of our three rookies.

Miller Time :(

Sad but true. Don’t understand the total meltdown late in the second. At first he was jostling with McD and I thought , oh goood.

Suddenly it’s blind passes and bad penalties.

c’mon JT. be better.

there is ten teams with more goals against than vancouver and 2 within 1 goal. 12 teams

 

there are six goalies with better sv% than demko on those teams. that would put demko in the middle of the pack, i stand by my remarks that demko has only played slightly better than average.

I wouldn't look at the fact that Rathbone didn't plus much in the 3rd as a benching at all to be honest with you...  he just rolled Hughes out a lot to try and get some goals.  I'm a big Rathbone fan too.  

 

I think our Power Play is looking PPathetic at the moment. Best we're hoping for is a slap shot from passes that allow opposing goalies to have an eternity to set up and don't get screened.  

 

Also to people bothered by Larsson's hit on Hughes, MacEwen was out on the ice with about 6 minutes left (unusual time to see him out there) and you could see on the corner of the screen that he went to Larsson and looked like he was talking to him/challenging him.  I would've liked to see Zack or someone else out there in the last minute and just show some pushback to the other team targeting your best player.  I'm not sure why Lind, Hoglander, Hawryluk and Highmore are the most physical forwards that we have at the moment, we can't blame it all on the coaching.  Graovac is the softest 6'5 guy I've seen since Taylor Pyatt.

So your opinion is that Demko has played slightly better than average and Ullmark has played much better than Demko? Thats your take on it?

YES. If you want to send a message you bench his ass after giving up the puck and his half ass attempt to backcheck. They can say whatever they want but the season is over.

 

Miller has done that multiple times this season and his body language is a bad example to our young players.

 

I'm glad Imac called him out on that because if that was Jake or Hoglander, they would've been benched. 

 

 

 

 

 

A few shifts off for Miller would have sent a message. Lots of other coaches do this when it’s called for.Then you line up Big Mac beside Connie MacD and have him take McJeebus off his game.
