    Good game, but I didn't turn it on until the 3rd. Devils are priority!:laugh:

    LOL @ him waving his finger at our bench while getting kicked out of the game...

    Solid win. Great effort all around.

    Unbelievable that this team does not have Kesler AND Booth. When they come back its going to feel like we acquired two top six forwards for free.

    It's calgary, can probably just call up Lack.



    Yes I know he's injured. That's the joke.

    I say Schneider. Had a strong game, let him build off of it.

    Boy, give the Wild some time to gel, but for a team that went out and made a huge splash in free agency, early returns are underwhelming.

    Feeling very good about this team right now. And they don't even have Kesler or Booth.

    Now just imagine this team with Kesler, Booth, and maybe one more big addition via trade.

    And you have to come back with Schneider. Lu got the benefit of extending a strong game, so too should Schneids.

    Easily Kassian's best non-Sedin game. All lines seem to have some hop except the Sedins.

    It's Calgary so it might be a good time to get David Honzik some experience. ;)

    Incredible how the mood around here has changed over the last few weeks. Good to see.

    Schneider. they need to roll the goalies in blocks of games. Besides Luongo has already established how good he is atm. Let's just dangle his 940 sv% out there for a while.

    Agreed. Especially in the 2nd, he was really strong. But then, you could really go either way on this one - I don't think there's a wrong choice for the next game.

    Schroeder (and Garrison) robbed by the Minnesota score-keepers on Raymond's goal. The Minnesota player didn't control the puck - they should each get helpers on that.

    Nice to see Higgins hit the scoresheet. And what a beautiful goal by Hansen - the pass, the catch, the release...perfect.

    I felt this may have been Garrison's strongest game in a Canuck uniform. Was calm with the puck, always seemed to be in the right position, was a factor offensively, and an effective physical presence.

    Tanev had a really good game, too; looked really confident out there. Perhaps some of the afterglow of scoring his first career goal.

    Schroeder had some nerves at first, but was a real threat afterward. Did some real good work on Raymond's goal (he has been on the ice for every goal Raymond has scored this year...coincidence? I think not).

    All in all, a pretty nice, effective road game. A shutout would have been nicer, but hard to complain about this one.

    Play Schneids till he allows 2 goals, play Lou till he allows 2 goals etc.


    Funny because that's how good our goalies actually are.

    Gotta think Schnu starts next game.

    If Schroeds can maintain a decent level of play against the better bigger teams:

    Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
    Booth - Kesler - Kassian
    Raymond/Higgins - Schroeder - Hansen
    Higgins/Raymond - Malhotra - Lapierre

    Volpatti drawing in for bigger teams.

    Lots of room for changing up the lines with the wingers.

    We have a deep roster top to bottom.
