    I read Erik Karlsson is doubtful for this one. Hopefully he stays out.

    Vancouver has to win and Minnesota has to lose to the seemingly-unbeatable Flyers tomorrow for this party to continue

    Sit Pouliot and Granlund and play MacEwen and Brisebois, please.

    Regardless, the Sharks take this though.

    3-2

    MacEwen played Friday and Saturday evenings, took an overnight bus ride Saturday night and flew across the continent yesterday.

    None of that would matter to a kid who would be getting into his first NHL game. Adrenalin is a hell of an equalizer.

    Hope he plays, but i suspect he does sit this one out.

    Which means he probably sits for a week and a half then gets one game and Green decides he’s not good enough and gets sent back to Utica.

    He got to “learn the fundamentals” before playing a game.

    I imagine if they want to play Mac they will have him rest and practice with the team a few times

    I'd like to sit Pou and play Brisebois personally now that Brisey has been here for a bit

    @Zombotron thanks for the GDT. That was very clean and helpful. Very good job and I appreciate your time in putting it together. :thumbu:

    I'd rather have a traffic cone out there in Pouliot's place at this point.

    Pouliot has played himself into the 7th DMAN position. When Edler returns I would prefer to see Biega stick in the lineup.

    Agree but hope he plays, Canucks need a lift.

    It's probably too early but must win games are coming soon.

    The biggest thing is that when the Canucks play other teams in the race for that last wildcard spot (the Blues are getting in) they need to win in regulation.

    If Minny can do their best Ducks impression that would help a lot too.

    7th man? That’s an insult to the Aaron Rome’s or Andrew Alberts, or even Yannic Weber’s of the world.

    With Koivu for the year for the Wild, they're probably the team to catch, two points behind with same GP.

    I really like Biega, he's the best skater on the back end. It's funny watching him go flying from red line to red line. Not sure what I think of his defensive game yet but he certainly doesn't stick out like a sore thumb like Pouliot does.

    He had a bad game against Calgary but Gudbranson and Pouliot have those games basically every night.

    I see you're an optimist, PG. :sarcasm:
    Way things have gone for out last few call ups its gonna be a surprise if he actually gets one game at all.

    That said, I think at this point the team should know what they have in Granlund, Schaller, Pouliot. Swapping in one of the kids might not have a huge effect on the play... so, hoping MacEwen and Brisebois get that one game at least.

    Sharks fore-check is better than Calgary's. Canucks will get buried alive in their own zone unless they can find a way to move the puck faster. And with some of the Canuck d-man you can't use 'puck movement' in the same sentence very often.

    Another stellar outing by Markstrom required. How long can he keep the run going?

    Could see this being a repeat of Saturday's game. Unless the Sharks check out, they're a 4 line team who pounds in shots and scoring chances.

    Question will be how much will Markstrom bail the team out.

    3-2 Canucks.

    Which is why, even though we're eager to see them, there won't be any Comet sightings on the ice anytime soon.

    Is there anything more to pick from the bones from the Comets roster?

    I'm not sure replacing Granlund with MacEwen and Pouliot with Brisebois decreases your chances at winning.

    Personally I'd love to see it. But no coach still in reach of making the playoffs (when most media/fans predicted a bottom 5 finish) is going to sit two guys with NHL experience in favour of two rookies yet to play an NHL game.

    Sooner or later markstrom is gonna break, can’t expect the guy to keep up with the absurd amount of work he has to do. When that happens the tank will truly begin.
