Cooke better keep his head up out there. The Sharks aren't going to be too happy about him knocking Stuart out last game. Actually, guys like Ohlund and Naslund should probably be careful too, in case the Sharks are gunning for our star guys.

5-3 Canucks.

The 'nucks are going to be playing these last 2 games like they are the regular season, so expect more domination like they showed last game.

Any ideas who's playing tonight?

Quote from SJ's official site: "On Thursday, the San Jose Sharks will host the Vancouver Canucks, in the second meeting in a week between the two teams. Last Sunday, the Sharks dominated Vancouver in a 4-1 victory in British Columbia. However, Thursday’s contest will present another challenge for the Sharks as they are playing second game in as many nights and returning home from Sacramento."

Geesh, how 'challenging' can it be to fly from Sacramento to San Jose or maybe the Sharks swam? :p

Excuses I say!

Canucks 4
Guppies 3

Edit: I looked around several sites for tonight's lineups but couldn't find anything. Does anyone know what they are? If so, please post them.

Hmm... I wonder if this means that the Canucks brass has made their decision on whether to sign Keane? You'd think if they hadn't they'd want to see him play as many games as possible.

I think if they were going to sign him, they'd have signed him already and exposed him in the waiver draft. If they sign him afterwards, they have to expose one of their protected forwards and waive him through the entire league... risky business.

= If they sign him afterwards, they have to expose one of their protected forwards and waive him through the entire league... risky business.

I'm guessing that if Keane is signed, he will be the one that gets put on waivers. But the thing that does change is that if a team were to go for Keane during the waiver draft they would've had to expose one of their protected players - which some teams are reluctant to do - whereas on regular waivers I don't think this is true.

You're right in that outside of the waiver draft, you can pick up players without having to send any of your "protected" players through waivers. I didn't really think about the possibility of putting Keane on waivers after signing him, and I think that's what they would do.

However, like I said previously, I suspect that a decision has already been made because Keane is not playing both of the last two exhibition games. If the decision was already made to sign him, it would have been easier for the club to get him through waivers at the waiver draft.

maruk14
10-02-2003, 05:12 PM
If Keane was signed before the waiver draft he would have had to either have been put on the protected list or exposed to the draft. If he is signed after the waiver draft he will either have to clear regular waivers or someone from the roster would have to clear waivers to make room for him. At least that is my understanding of it. I could be wrong.

It might matter a little--he's the one that's going to be called up if/when Cloutier or Hedberg gets hurt. Burke plans on keeping Auld in Manitoba the whole year, so......

Of course, there's a chance Moss could get picked up on waivers or traded between now and at some point during the season (something I wouldn't doubt happening). We'll see what happens, I guess.

Thats depend on the circumstance.

For a defenceman, it is a good indication.


For a foward especailyl for fourth liner than ya it is not all that reflective for the performance. For example Heatley and Kovalchuk play on the same team, but Heatley has better +/-, that does tell the difference between both players.


Heatley was -8 last season

Kovalchuk was -24 last season.

That is a handsome 16 goals difference.

Disagree...

Unless you are really really far into the minus, or the plus, it tells absolutely nothing. There are five players on the ice, yet on any given goal only about a maximum of 3 defenders are actually involved in the play. Stupid, stupid stat. It works the same way on offense.

i would not use the word stupid, it is a good team stat like maruk14 said. And there is obvious something about it since Bertuzzi has mentioned last season that he feels more pride getting a better +/- than points.

"Go Banana"- Ralph Wiggum

I think +/- is a misleading stat. Take for instance, Ohlund, he had a worse +/- than Jovo because Ohlund always has to face the other teams top players. Everyone acknowledges that Ohlund is a lot better defensively than Jovo, but if you were to take +/- seriously it would say Jovo is far superior to Ohlund defensively which is obviously false. There are too many variables involved with the +/- stat for me to take it that seriously.

Bertuzzi should worry more about learning to play D than about some silly stat. Just because a goal is scored while you are on the ice hardly makes you a bad defensive player. However, if that goal is scored as a result of your own shoddy defensive play, then you have reason to feel like a liability (which Bert certainly is).

Although i think Bertuzzi's defensive play is terrible for the most part, but it is better than it was couple seasons ago if you can believe that, however, that is another story. Don't get it wrong, i don't think +/- is good statistic if you look at it as black and white in all the case and it is indeed misleading, but i don't think it is useless.
