On the CBC feed they had quicks 3rd period and OT GAA and SV%

i'd say those late game numbers put him in contention alone

How about his 1st period stats?

I don't think you can ignore him but come on...

meh, "king" henrik has what, 11 goals in last 4 games or somthing?

i think being clutch when it counts as a goalie is worthwhile for consideration at least

wouldnt doubt Doughty gets it though

It's still a foreign concept to him after all those years in Colombus

I've flipped over to games the Rangers have played throughout the playoffs and watched Richards float around, especially on the back-check... whatever happened to that drive he used to have in TB...........

No way. Easy to say that now, but had Canucks got swept in the SCF,
fans would have been even more pissed about working so hard to get to the finals and pissing away the whole series without having a single win to show for.

moral of the story.. you can never please the canucks fans.

1. Canucks don't do well the last couple of years..everyone wanted AV fired and get a fresh start... no NYR makes the finals, the fans comments that he should have never gotten fired.

2. NYR down 3-0 in finals... fans are now mentioning that AV never changes his game plan, etc

3. IF NYR comes back and wins the cup.. I can't even imagine what the canucks fans would say lol


I do want to see MSTL win a cup tho

that would be been better then getting our hopes up like we did and crushed, also there wouldn't of been riots which is a big factor in my thinking this way

But I find losing in game 7 had little to do with the rioting.
I had a feeling the riot was premeditated by a bunch of goons which would have done so even if Canucks had won,
and it doesn't take a lot for a drunken mass to follow once a riot gets going.

But on a personal level, I would have enjoyed a longer series than a sweep.
"Hope" is not always a bad thing.

Sometimes, it's like asking a hot girl out.
You might get crushed trying, but in the end, it's probably better than just not trying at all...
Like missing the playoffs every season, just so you can say I never got eliminated.

Why haven't the Canucks hired Byslma yet? At least get him before Florida does he's the most qualified coach on the market. They already missed out on Trotz

Because he might not be the most qualified coach for the Canucks.

What do you think about Willie Desjardins possibly becoming the next coach?

Desjardins looks a strong fit to coach Canucks - Sportsnet.ca

Except Bylsma turned around that same stacked Pens team that was blowing monkey chunks halfway through that season, and then proceeded to win the cup. So no, the Pens weren't exactly firing on all cylinders either.

Whoever comes in to coach for the Canucks will be stepping into a pretty good situation IMO. The team isn't nearly as bad as the record and play showed last year. Not saying they'll win the cup but it wouldn't surprise me if they can hang with the contenders in the west

How do you figure Quick robbed Brassard on that one? His stick was there well before Brassard shot the puck. Brassard shot the puck right into his stick. I think even Quick would have to admit he was lucky on that one, of the entire 4 foot height of the net he chose to shoot the puck into that 5" area that Quick's stick occupied. Crap luck for Brassard and the NYR, but they've had a good run and not much business belonging in the SCF IMO

Maybe Canucks are waiting for Kings to sweep so they can announce hiring of John Stevens.

The Canucks have said that they will not hire a coach until the NHL and AHL season is over.

I think you may need to see the clip from this angle. Quick robbed him. His stick wasnt there "well before" the shot. In real time you can see exactly how it happened. Brassard didn't have all day to shoot it and it was coming off the backhand. Also Brassard was looking at the puck and not the net.
