    Unfortunately, I don't think we're any more exciting these days than they are.

    Think I'm going to skip this one. Haven't missed a game yet all year, but the Canucks and Preds are both playing some pretty ugly hockey and I should probably spend the time studying for my midterm Friday.

    Hope we win.

    Correction in the Preds lineup: Gaustad was sent back to nashville with a upper body injury,Chris mueller was recalled today from milwaukee,so he will join the team in vancouver and play tomorrow

    Two huge defensive liabilities is just too much. Would also rather see Barker, he's slow as **** but at least he looks alright offensively from time to time.

    And put Garrison on the first PP unit ffs. Who scored last night? Edler is so hesitant out there lately it drives me crazy. 0-25? And you still roll with the same guys? Tell Edler to pass it back to Garrison on the point every once in a while or put Hamhuis or someone out there that will.

    I was watching that game on PVR last night/this morning and the lack of chances they generated was painful to watch. CBJ buries one of those chances and Canucks easily lose that game. Yes, puck possession and nearly 40 shots, but how many quality chances out of all that? I could think of a couple? Hamhuis on the powerplay... and a whole lot of Sedins cycling in the corner. Not good enough, not nearly good enough.

    Just looks like they have lost that spark or something. There's something missing out there lately, and its not just Kesler (who they were doing well enough without earlier in the season) or Bieksa.

    Good to get the win last night, but it did little to alleviate my concerns.

    Guess it will be exciting to watch Nucks in the hunt for a playoff spot, been a few years since we've seen that.

    So we have a new goal song that is debuting tomorrow. No more vamanos but since it's against Nashville we might not even get to hear it.

    If the Canucks lineup does become official then they should switch that Ebbett line to the third line.

    Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
    Booth-Higgins-Kassian
    Raymond-Ebbett-Hansen
    Sestito-Lapierre-Weise

    Switch Alberts and put Ballard in.

    Lou plays :)

    Yep. It was a perfectly good goal song. The biggest reason Chicago's is so immortalized is because it's had a decent tenure. I hope Philadelphia keeps there's for awhile too.

    And the number of people that ever said that while it was our goal song? I think I can recall three posts saying they actually liked it. Whenever it was brought up everyone was all: "Why isn't this song our goal song? Green Day sucks, this song sucks blah blah blah I'm a pathetic whiner."

    EDIT: I shouldn't say everyone, but there was visible majority.

    Nope. Watching these games is moving quickly from privilege to habit to chore. Sad but true. Pretty clear without Kesler this team has almost zero hop in their stride so to speak.

    I miss Kesler. I know a lot of people were hating on him 1-2 games after he came back (and also now, even though he's not in the line-up...:help:). Just rotten luck with the broken foot (which, I'm sure, hampered his play). He was amazing in his first game back, and that Dallas game was so much fun (even though we lost). He's a huge part of this team.

    Just going through the NHL game sountracks... man I forgot how much I loved this song on NHL 09. Brings back great memories with my eschl buddies.. you know who you are ;)

    Actually this could be a decent goal song.. with the lyrics "you could cry me a river" "you got me runnin wild and free"

    Very up tempo.

    Kesler has slowly been getting the Luongo treatment here. I think some of it is fair (the diving, shooting from the blueline) but a lot of it isn't. It's pretty clear this is a very mediocre team without him.

    Prozzak still exists?! That takes me back to 1999...

    I hate Vamanos. That song was absolutely dreadful, and I'll be happy never to hear it again. Not overly optimistic that whatever replaces it will be good, though.

    I want to rip my ears out every time I hear that song. I'm glad all of my twitter harrassment of DJ Dave finally seems to be paying off. :sarcasm:

    Er, I guess I'll have to wait and see what he plays tomorrow night. Honesty, if he's going to pick some random crappy song, I'd rather just go for an overused good one like Song 2 by Blur or Rock'n Roll Part 2 by Gary Glitter or even We Will Rock You.

    I'll be so jacked if it's Doop (flyers goal song). I noticed that he played Doop during one of the breaks in a recent canucks game. Did anyone else notice that? Please, please be Doop. :laugh:



    Oh yeah, can we get a sports bar like this in van? Soooo sick.
