He probably wont be back for a couple of weeks, he said his shoulder wasn't strong enough yet.
Going to Rogers arena for this game, any signs idea?
"Fleury still sucks"
"Otto kicked it in"
Honestly I would be more worried if we had Kipper in net, the Canucks always seem to light him up.
I think the Flames are actually looking a bit dangerous despite their horrible start and Kipper going down. Hudler is stirring the drink there and giving them a second line that can play some puck possession and are showing up Iginla, Tanguay and Cammi on a lot of night. Bouwmeester is looking like he's more engaged in the play as well. They're finally getting away from the old Sutter team that we have enjoyed beating up on for so long. I think they're going to score a lot but also give up a lot.
"he kicked it in"
Won't be an easy one. Plus, backups kill us for some reason. See Sanford, Khudobin, etc..
"Calgary is finally rebuilding!"
"Canucks here to help Calgary's rebuild."
"On the bright side, Bouwmeester plays as much playoffs as Toronto."
Or you know, you could not troll them. >.>
This, this, a thousand times this - that is an awesome sign idea.
Our performance against backups has improved a little bit over recent years (although Anton Khudobin will haunt me until I die...). The Canucks just need to come out and work hard, simple as that. The opportunities will come.
Calgary's won two in a row, and Dennis Wideman appears to be really hot for them at the moment, especially with the man advantage. So that will be something to watch out for.
I'm also guessing that one of Weise or Volpatti will cross paths with Tim Jackman.
Hopefully the Sedins can feast on Calgary's goaltending and Mason Raymond can stay hot against Calgary. Or does that only happen in Calgary?
Otto kicked it in, it is then.
Are you sure the majority would remember who is Otto?
Go with a whiteboard and marker. That way you can make a changing sign that applies to whats going on in the game.
I'd actually bet on you getting caught on TV with that sign. It's a clever reference; you might see some fans too young/too recent to remember that, but you'll come across a few who will have a good laugh.
That's my two cents, anyway. Have fun at the game!
Thanks, the Canucks never lost when i go to their games. 2-0 record!
(First game we won against Nashville Predator 2-1 with Bob Essensa in net)
(Second game we won against Winnipeg.....I mean Atlanta Thrashers 8-0 with Dan Cloutier in net)
Luongo for Bozak + 2nd round pick
The real fans (30 and up ) that are watching on TV will; and thats what counts.
The ones that can actually afford to go to the game will be too busy on their "devices".
Either way, I think you'll get your 15 seconds with that one.
Would be better in a leafs game though
There isn't going to be a Canucks-Leafs game this season.
Thats actually pretty funny. That could seriously be a new gimmick.
After a ref makes a questionable call the camera would pan to the white board and get the fans opinion. Lots of possibilities there.
Except when we score. Then you pull up Luongo for Gardiner+
But yeah, better at a leafs game.
Yeah I guess that miscue puts the rest of the detailed prediction into question.
Warning SB confession time: I used to not mind the Flames back in the late 80s/early 90s (yes even 89) but it quickly developed into a hatred by the 93-95 seasons...
And then when that inbred rat Gilmour was traded to the Leaves and deliberately broke Sandstroms' arm and received a "7 day suspension excluding game days" I began my deep hatred for the Leaves and Don Cherry, and a mild short lived sympathy for the Kings...
Some Canucks vs. Flames Stats...
Mason Raymond - 25GP, 9G, 8A, 17Pts
Daniel Sedin - 67GP, 30G, 37A, 67Pts
Henrik Sedin - 69GP, 11G, 47A, 58Pts
Just when I was worried there would be no more funny faces out of Calgary with Jokinen gone...
No Kesler? This list sucks.
What about in the Playoffs?
Hahahahaahaa oh man. I'm so funny.
