Very few coaches have either an the cup, or came within one game of winning the cup... AV is in the latter group. I guess e team coached themselves for that run?

That's because Hamhuis is always good. He's not a spectacular D man but he rarely makes mistakes. He's had a great year.

I would put Hammer and Juice back together and make them the de facto shutdown pair. They were awesome at that and contributing more than they are now. I hate AV's philosophy of balancing out lines (putting good/hot players with bad/cold ones to try to spark the baddies) rather than putting lines together based on chemistry and effectiveness. Oh hey, Weise is playing decent? BETTER PUT HIM ON THE SEDIN LINE TO GET THEM GOING.

Having Garrison and Edler presents a problem because they both shoot left. Best case scenario would be to grab two free agent D next year, a puck moving D (a passer, not a shooter) and a solid, vet, stay at home D, both right handed shots. Split up Garrison and Edler, put the guy that's struggling with the vet and the hotter of the two with the mover. Rotate based on play or need. Unfortunately, we don't have the cap room nor the roster space. So the D is going to look more and more like putting square pegs in round holes.

Edler and Bieksa need stable partners to thrive, like Edler did with Salo and Bieksa did with Hamhuis. That's why I don't understand the pairings this year. Why split up Bieksa and Hamhuis?

I know. Hammer shoots left and Bieksa shoots right. That's why that pair works. Splitting them up was stupid.

I would say yes but honestly with the way B Shan does things you never know. When he first came on board I was optimistic but fast forward a few years and he has only further complicated things.

Blindside, leaves his feet, contact with the head. Should be a suspension.

Head is the primary point of contact too. Look at his hand push Lydman's shoulder after the contact. That should be evidence enough that the shoulder wasn't the primary point of contact.

Add to that the fact that Abdelkader isn't a star and there was an injury on the play. I'm going to guess 4-5 games.

Extremely soft call in OT leads to a Pens PP, and goal of course. Pretty bad.

Cory playing.

Also, looks like Ballard may be in, Alberts out.

Looks like Ballard is in for Alberts. Corrado playing tonight means 1st year of his entry level deal is burned. #canucks

AV just had on-ice discussion with Schroeder. Expect he is in for Ebbett. #Canucks

AV confirms Schroeder will not play tonight. Won't confirm if Ballard plays. IF he does, it could be as fwd. #canucks
Can't score goals, play Ballard as a forward. #AVLogic
