whcanuck Posted October 21, 2021 Share Posted October 21, 2021 Is there really something to it? Sure seems like it Dating back as far as I can remember, the Canucks seem to have an uncanny ability to make almost any goaltender, a backup, a third-string, a 40 year-old journeyman, a guy on a terrible cold streak, look like late 90s Dominik Hasek. Why is that? We have guys who can score goals, why does it seem that almost any goaltender can flip a switch and suddenly become a brick wall against Vancouver? Even Tim Thomas in 2011. Montreal, who was WAY less offensively potent than the powerhouse Canucks that year, scored 17 goals in a 7 game series with Boston, more than twice what Vancouver could get. The Habs finished 24th in goals for that year & Vancouver was the highest scoring team in the league. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
