Now if only Weber got something more than a chump change fine as punishment..
chump change is an understatement. guy literally makes like $3000 playing 1 shift.

Holtby just got a roughing penalty for a very similar play to this. Interesting, but why am I not surprised?

Tim Thomas runs over Henrik Sedin 6/6/11 - YouTube
I'll say it again, probably one of the most badass plays in the series. Definitely set the tone.

Iginla didnt sound like he wants to return to the flames if they are gonna rebuild in a interview last week. He prefers to go to a team that is going to win.

I wish Iginla nothing but success. For the sake of his career, I hope he does go to a contender. He deserves a legit chance at the cup!

From some guy off hfboards, he brings up some valid points

Quote:
It's not just one game. The Canucks are stuck
with the reputation of being the biggest divers in
the NHL. They got that reputation last playoffs
because 1) They were good enough to warrant
national attention and 2) They blatantly did it.
Every team does it, yes, but the Canucks are
terrible at it and it shows. That picture of
Kesler's head tilted back like a swan on the first
Canucks goal is both hilarious and pathetic at
the same time.
Bieksa first brought the diving issue up to the
locker room and Gillis followed suit in the off-
season. They did a fantastic job of playing
regular hockey through the entire season. It was
nice watching the Canucks play with integrity
and no suspensions for so long. First game of
the playoffs and literally any progress they made
since the Finals disappeared. Bitz rams a guy
into the boards for a suspension (costing us a
goal, too), Kesler pulls off two A+ dives, Luongo
adds his own dive to the show, and Burrows
finishes it off with his own routine. I don't even
think Sedin's fall was a dive, but even if you take
that out the Canucks were still a joke last night.
You can embellish a bit to draw a call, but
snapping your head back and doing cartwheels
does nothing but look stupid. I prefer being able
to come on HFBoards without sifting through
dozens of trolls talking about how embarrassing
this team is. You can't even argue with them
because aside from the exaggerations, they have
a point.
I really hope Bieksa pulled another speech out
of his ass after the game last night. I don't think
I can take another month of watching this crap,
if we can even get past LA.

Will be interesting to see what happens.

Based on internal discussions, Brent Sutter wouldn't have accepted a new contract. Hence, "mutual". Doesn't sound like big changes ahead.

i honestly wonder if shanahan has his hands tied for the playoffs. for the regular season, he did start off with some good suspensions but it seems like towards the end of the season he started getting soft.

if i were in shanahan's shoes, i'd rather hand out stiff suspensions and get fired than tarnish my own reputation.

AV's comments about the matchup between Kesler and Richards as per this tweet:

@FarhanLaljiTSN: Asked what he likes about Kesler vs Richards matchup, AV: "I'm not sure I like that matchup. I'm going to think about that one..."#canucks.

Is the coach trying to bring more motivation to Kesler? Your thoughts on AV's comments.

Come on No. 17, beast mode from now on in the playoffs!
