And....just when we say that you know what happens.    ;)

 

Expect the unexpected.

I find that the opposite happens in preseason.

 

The vets kind of mail it in to avoid injury and it’s the young AHL guys that perform because they’re trying to earn a spot.

 

Wouldn’t be surprised if the team in Calgary won but also would t be surprised if it’s a blowout.

Pretty much. Interestingly, when the Canucks won the Presidents’ Trophy in 2011 and 2012, in both years they had a preseason record of 3-5-0.

4th line, most of Abbotsford’s team and Dermot going to Calgary. I hope that isn’t the game on TV.

In the 2019/2020 split squad game that team that was sent to Calgary featured only Virtanen, Beagle, Motte and many AHL vets like Wacey Hamilton and Carter Bancks defeated a heavily veteran laden Calgary Flames team that featured Lindholm, Gaudreau, Tkachuk, Monahan, etc and beat them in OT 3-2.

It was actually a very entertaining game too. Lots of the AHL veterans and unimportant prospects played very well. Don't discount the group going to CGY tonight either. They could very well pull away a win.

Calgary is sending a goon squad to Rogers Arena tonight. Glad to have Schenn and Arseneau in the lineup. 

I noticed that too. Sadly, I’m a bit envious of how much size they have. I think we still need to toughen up more if we want to go more than a round in playoffs.

I would feel better about the start of the regular season if we lost a few in the pre-season tbh. More preparation then expectations this way
