    I predict that Mr. Canucklehead predicts that Schroeder will get his first NHL goal.
    :sarcasm:

    (no, but seriously, he will)

    Ok, I'll ask....

    Who starts?

    I think AV has to give Schneider the same opportunity he gave Luongo to string together a few wins.

    We usually suck on CBC. But, it's flames without Kipper so, My guess is 5-2 Nucks. :nod:

    We also usually suck when it comes to back up goalies for some reason.

    CBC + Irving = Canucks lose

    :cry:

    Irving did shut us out last time we faced him in our rink.


    But I think will keep rolling and Beat them 3-0.

    Schroeder with his first goal ;) (thats for Mr.C)

    I was a youngin' during that game (what was it, 1992?). I remember being in the car on the way home listening to it on CKNW for the first period and all of us lamenting that we'd probably missed all the goals that were going to be scored in that game.

    ...boy, oh boy were we wrong.

    It was indeed glorious.

    I'm thinking I've been jinxing him, so here's a reverse - he won't score in this one. In fact, he'll be so bad that they'll make him last to board the team bus after the game, slam the door in his face, and then tear out of the parking lot - making sure to drive over a puddle and splash him on the way - while leaving him there standing alone, just as it starts to rain. Wait, Calgary - as it starts to snow.

    Calgary seems to be improving and we seem to tire on b2b games...I'll give this one to Calgary, 3-2.

    Expecting a bit of a snoozer, to be honest...

    Edit: Messed up. That adds up to 24 goals against. And I already deleted my list of blowouts... Oh well. :(

    Quoted for accuracy. Two weeks ago, I dubbed Schroeder "Hobbit" and Kassian as "Cave Troll" while out and drunk off my face. Both names stuck in my mind, and those of who I was with.

    I think Kassassin is better, but "Hobbit" or something like "that fool of a Took" or if he's mucking up around the boards and playing physical "Schroeder Oakenshield"...something Tolkein-esque would be wonderful.

    He'll have to score a goal eventually, right? He and his linemates are playing too well.

    I really, really thought he had one in Minny - he was standing in front of the net, it was completely empty, and one of his linemates tried to thread the puck through Suter's legs to him. Would have been a tap-in, but Suter managed to shuffle it away.

    Regardless - Schroeder is doing all the right things, so at some point the offense will come. At the least, he's been a threat out there. And I don't think it's a coincidence that every one of Raymond's goals have been scored whilst #45 is on the ice.

    Irvin (sp?) has potential but he was up against Columbus. We shouldn't have an issue bombarding him. Of course, logic and this team does not always compute.

    We make any backup look like the next coming of Roy.

    He held the Canucks to 1 goal on 30 shots last season. Never underestimate the Canucks' ability to be shut down by a backup.

    That was Kassian, who as we all know has some good vision and creativity.

    The fact it's a backup we're playing against really worries me.

    3-1 Canucks

    Burrows
    Garrison
    Kassian

    Backlund

    went with the right score past time and got the first two guys as well (Daniel and Higgins) so I'm expecting to be completely wrong this time :D

    EDIT- ***** Since I heard Backlund wash playing (psychic powers were wrong for once) ill pick Wideman to get it.

    That's fine, we'll play our backup too. We just need to determine who is our backup...

    I smell a slaughter playing the Flames without Kipper.
