OMG! The Canucks slogan for the commercials is spot on these days for the team's play: It's a new game!


The team is playing for heart that's for sure. Despite being outshot 30-16, they find ways to win.

We are 9-0-1 when Bo Ho scores.

#33 is Erixon, not Phaneuf.

Full tank mode obvious with Panik, Rielly, and Erixon on the ice in OT.

I was at the game tonight and I don't think Lack won the game for the Nucks as much as the Ducks didn't want the win badly enough.
Yes Lack robbed Perry on the PP, but 9 times out of 10 that puck goes in just like Marleau's missed empty net last game.

Hovat's goal is another example of the Ducks just not wanting the game badly enough. Anderson misses on the easy glove of the puck and the Ducks D plays hot potato with it leading to Hansen being able to knock the puck to Horvat. Can't complain about Horvat's shot. That was a shooter's goal, someone with lots of confidence.

Overall, Vey is not as NHL ready in his development when compared to Schroeder. Vey tried skating the puck out of his own zone a couple of times and each time he gave away the puck just before hitting the center red line leading to an odd man rush going back the other way.

McMillan looked lost out there. He needs more time in the farm to learn the Canucks system. Prior to the Ducks scoring their goal, McMillan had a chance to clear the puck from the zone and instead throws it behind the net where no one was. This lead to a turn over and the Nucks never did regain possession.

Dorsett played well as usual. He was a thorn in Perry and Kesler's side whenever he was on.

The twins are slow and weak on the defensive end. Don't kid yourselves. Against a cup contending D pairing, the twins look slow and weak. Their PP suffer for the same reason.

I dont agree on your first part but do agree on your second part...the ducks literally were all over the canucks and the only one who was keeping us in it was lack. The shots were a 2-1 margin in favour of the ducks. The outplayed the canucks the whole game and once they tied it up canucks actually started to play. This game could have been a blow out if lack didn't stand on his head...

We are 9-0-1 when Bo Ho scores.
its 10-0-1 now...11 goals lol...first team to give the Ducks a regulation loss in 1 goal games this season

I wouldn't go as far as saying the team is playing with heart, there was a lot of luck involved...it could easily have been 5-1 Ducks if Eddie didn't stand on his head and got some help from the post.

For a good 40 minutes the Canucks could hardly get past the red line, let alone come up with any good offensive pressure. At some point it was like they didn't want the game and they were trying hard to give it to the Ducks.

I hate to say it but if you want a good example of heart and finding ridiculous ways to win/get points, you'd have to look no further than the Flames. How they can keep rolling in a season where they were expected to be at the cellar is pretty damn amazing especially with the fact that they now lost their captain and best player. The Canucks on the other hand have had more than a handful of games were they looked old, tired and generally uninterested in winning.

If Canucks were to make the playoffs, i hope they play against the Flames. I can't rmbr who said it in the papers but the Canucks/Flames represent each other's best chances at getting past the first. It'd be a pretty epic series that'll for sure go 7 games.

i know hindsight is 20/20 and it might be a bit early but imo Jensen is a bust. He's got the frame but he's looked lazy and lost in the NA game.

Hindsight is 20/20, MG era scouts were shit but CAMAN...what kind of stupid were the scouts to pick Jensen over Brandon Saad.
44GP 34G 42A 76PTS in Saad's final year of Junior vs Jensen's
57GP 25G 33A 58PTS



Other notable names that were missed:
David Musil (D)
Tomas Jurco (RW)
Boone Jenner (C)
John Gibson (G) - ok, yeah we still had Schneids and Luu so this never would've happened
Victor Rask (C)
Nikita Kucherov (RW) - yeah probably wouldn't have happened cus we never draft Russians and the Bolts got lucky with this pick.

I rmbr hoping before the draft that the Canucks would draft either Saad or Jenner. I never understood the hype around Jensen nor the idiots saying Canucks "stole" him at 29th. Sure, at this point of the draft its crapshoot but there were clearly better prospects available. God, our scouts were fucking terrible.

Not voting for Jensen, but I think his concussion in 2012 has affected his play.

Canucks weren't the only ones who over looked Saad. 28 other teams did as well. Hell even Chicago picked two players late in the first round over him who have 2 NHL games combined. There's a lot we don't know when it comes to drafting.

True but they eventually redeemed themselves with the Saad pick. Drafting is a crapshoot.
But damn, as a Canucks fan, hindsight is a bitch. With Benning, the one thing i'm looking forward to is better drafting and actual scouting. For years we've been tormented with shitty picks.

speaking of drafts, get a load of this guy.

Jack Todd: Carey Price or Sidney Crosby as No. 1 draft pick today? | Montreal Gazette

Spoiler!



Really? Sure Price is great now and he'll be great for some time but the arrogance in this article is overwhelming. I'm not a big Sid fan but no matter how you shake the 2005 draft Crosby will always be number 1. Even with today's knowledge only Mike Milbury would draft Price ahead of Crosby in 2005.

As much as I like Price as a goalie, no way in hell would he be picked before Crosby.

Just look at Crosby and the players he played with. C'mon, he's good enough he was able to get Chris Kunitz on to Team Canada. Chris Kunitz... lol

I saw the same thing. He basically Did a move Kassian would do to get scratched from a game. I'm really hoping Kenis gets slotted back in for McMillan. 10pts In 16 games is awesome for a 4th liner.
