Easy for you to say but remember that Henriks back was so fucked up he could barely kneel forward and tie his own skates. You can't just blame the Sedins for "being invisible" / not showing up when most or the entire team didn't either.

especially when they took cross check after cross check after cross check with NO call from the refs. it's no wonder henrik's back was fucked up by the time we got to the finals.

anyways, i'm really curious to see how our team will look at the end of the season. i have to be honest and say that at this point in time, i don't have as much confidence as i did in last year's team. and no, for the cynical ones, i'm not just basing this on last night's performance.

Interesting. I really like this years team versus last years team.

2010-11:
Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Raymond/Higgins - Kesler - Samuelsson
Torres - Lapierre - Hansen
Glass - Malholtra / Hodgson - Oreskovich

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Ehrhoff - Edler
Ballard - Salo
Rome / Alberts

Luongo
Schneider

2011-12:

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Booth - Kesler - Kassian
Higgins - Pahlsson - Hansen
Malholtra - Lapierre - Raymond (where he belongs)

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Salo
Ballard / Gragnani / Rome - Tanev / Alberts

Luongo
Schneider

--

The 4th line last year was a mess. There was no "solidified" center or 4th line OVERALL. Guys were always rotated on that line. This years 4th line is MUCH better compared to last year.

The 2nd line is legit with Kesler having actual linemates playing with him and the addition of Kassian being able to play with Kes, Sedins or as a grinder on the 3rd/4th also helps [which Hodgson can't do cough cough*]

Although this years defense is weaker than last year because of not having an Ehrhoff, Schneider can easily step into Luongo's spot if he craps the bed versus his "inexperience against big teams" last year

I'm confident with this years team

I really hope Booth can keep it up! The Amex line has been amazing to watch thus far, and with Kassian looking like he can fit into that line, its deadly offensively and defensively!

Pretty confident in this years line up. Now's the best time to win the cup. Another Canuck team like this might not roll around for a while. We're tougher and more experienced this year, I'm fuckin pumped for the playoffs.

We got 16 games left. 10 of them are against non-playoff teams. This is the perfect time for the Canucks to head into the playoffs with some momentum on our side with everyone firing on all cylinders.

wouldn't the opposite be better? considering the Canucks pretty much are locked into a 1 or 2 seed, wouldn't you want to end it with some playoff type games? beating on the lower tier teams doesn't really prep for the playoffs.

Thats a good arguement but the Canucks already know what it takes to win come playoff time. Id rather the Canucks build some momentum. We dont need them to prep for playoff hockey cause we need them to be as fresh as humanly possible and injury free cause the playoffs is a huge grind

Anyone else thinking that Dallas could pull off a huge upset in the playoffs? The more I watch them, the more I wish the Canucks don't have to play them in the first round. They seem to be rolling at the right time.

LOL both goalies get hurt for the OHL Erie Otters, forward forced to play goal. Jamie Allison had to dress as backup goalie to sit on the bench one year for the Predators, would be funny to see this in the NHL

Quote:
Connor Crisp hadn't strapped on goalie pads since he was a boy, and he may never do so again.

But for one game, the 17-year-old centre played in net for the Erie Otters and was named first star after allowing 13 goals on 46 shots.

Crisp was pressed into action as an emergency replacement Sunday when starting goalie Ramis Sadikov was injured in the opening minutes of a 13-4 victory by the Niagara IceDogs.

"Well, I'm a road hockey goalie, ball hockey goalie, but that's the first time I've put on goalie equipment and played on ice since I was five years old," said Crisp.

The Otters dressed only one goaltender after backup Devin Williams suffered a head injury earlier this weekend in a game against Saginaw. Sadikov was knocked out just 1:45 into Sunday's game after a collision with IceDogs forward Alex Friesen, who received a five-minute major for charging and a game-misconduct on the play.

With no backup on the bench the Otters had a choice -- dress a player for the rest of the game, or forfeit.

Enter Crisp, who hadn't played in a single game this season after undergoing shoulder surgery. He had been designated as the backup goalie prior to the game, but said "not in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be playing today."

Following a 20-minute delay while he donned goaltender equipment, Crisp stepped onto the ice and almost slipped, then fell while taking warmup shots -- much to the appreciation of the Niagara fans.

"My feet are still cramped, I can hardly walk right now," said Crisp. "Rammer's skates were three times too small and not wide enough, that's probably why I couldn't skate."

The fans' admiration would soon grow.

Crisp made six saves in the first period, 12 in the second and 14 more in the third period, which culminated with a standing ovation from the crowd and first star honours.

"It was appreciated so much -- beyond words," he said. "Honestly, it was embarrassing to let some of those goals in, but I think the IceDogs fans knew. I can't say enough about how fun and classy that was today."
OHL: Otters forced to put forward in net, lose to IceDogs

jeedee: as you pointed out, my main concern is with defense. we haven't replaced ehrhoff by any means and it's the same story with ballard again this year. his performance/confidence hasn't improved a whole lot despite having more opportunities to play. we've relied heavily on offense from salo/edler and bieksa/hamhuis struggle at times to shutdown.

then we have alberts & rome who are decent but not difference makers. tanev is good but still needs more muscle. gragnani's play is almost overtly offense (dangerous to us come playoff time imo).

i do like our forwards better this year but we have yet to see what pahlsson can offer as our shutdown centre. he's 34 now and didn't do a whole lot for columbus (yes, i realize that team sucks ass collectively). kassian has played well considering the type of pressure he must be feeling and i hope he can ratchet it up for the playoffs because we need him NOW more than later. if the sedins are shutdown (and they usually are at some point) then we are left with the second line to score with rare contributions from the 3rd and 4th lines.

^True our defence needs to be healthy throughout the playoffs. That's why Gillis always say it's not for sure we will win, it sometimes depends on your luck too. Like imagine if Chara was hurt?

Just make sure Hamhuis doesn't do any hip checks that ends up hurting himself. lol
