Discussion in 'Vancouver Canucks' started by Zombotron, Feb 25, 2019.
A polite reminder:
Pro-tank posting is verboten in GDTs. Thanks.
Verbatim. Verboten. Virtanen.
The same dread continues with almost one third of our lineup in the infirmary (I know we're not allowed to bring up the injury excuse..but this is ridiculous..especially with the the top two D out).
I have a feeling that this is going to be a very chippy game.
If we drop points here I'll be firmly on team tank. I might be there already. But all credit to our Canucks, this is the latest I've joined team tank in the Jim Benning era.
Someone needs to give Getzlaf a hard cross check to the ribs
Canucks will get shutout again
He already answered the bell with Gudbranson for that hit. Code fulfilled. Let it die.
The only reason for the late entry into the 'tank sweepstakes' this year is that the bottom feeders in the Western Conference have been historically bad. Otherwise it would have been business as usual for the Canucks.
And if the goal of the Canuck braintrust was to be 'playing meaningful games in March', then that's looking like a bust as well. A loss to the Ducks tonight, and the games in March really won't mean anything. In Gary Bettman's NHL, when you're eight points down with 20 games to play, you can plan the funeral procession.
Sorry, but other than the Pettersson breakthrough and maybe Markstrom finding his game, I really don't a see a lot of difference between this Canuck team and the ones in any other dismal season.
No Rouss or is he ill ?
Was ill on the weekend, but played anyways; I think he's in
i would like to see him with Bo for a few straight games
How long until Green starts benching Spooner again
I’d like to see him on the EP line creating some havoc to take some of the attention away from Petterson.
Rather see MacEwan in his spot.
Also interested to see how long they even pencil Spooner into that spot. As proven, he won't actually play there long (despite the line-up sheet) once Green figures out he actually sucks. Does he get a couple games before he's scratched or fighting for ice time with Goldobin?
Baertschi is skating again..that should get spooner out of the lineup.
This is what I would like.
But now I need to drink. Guds is gone!
Spooner sucks. I don't like him at all. Speed's his only asset but he rarely uses it well. You guys think Pearson draws in tonight?
I think he could be a good linemate for Petey. They need a skilled two-way forward who can win puck battles and play well defensively. Not saying Pearson is that, but I'd try him over Spooner.
Freed of Gudbransen we celebrate with a win.
You couldn’t have just rewritten the names?
No, @vanarchy. They do things differently in Finland.
Im drinking Bowmore, I felt like drawing.
God I'm so excited to see Luke Schenn outperform Guddy.
Be careful what you wish for as Schenn is worse. We can only hope Elmer doesn't give him a contract extension.
Separate names with a comma.
