Anybody but Moss. I think that was the worst game i've ever seen any goalie play against San Jose. 4 weak goals, and he wanted to be backup.

<------------Does the name Brochu ring any bells? Now he was the worst goalie against the Sharks. Haven't seen him since.

You what was worse... Listening to Dan Russell say, and I quote, "But to his credit he shut the door after the 4th goal."

Now If Cloutier was in net, Dan is all over him and devotes the entire 3 hours to why Cloutier sucks.

Moss lets in 4 goals on 12 shots and is commended for shutting the door after the soft game winning goal.

That's right! The game that ended his NHL career.

I guess the Lions will bump the Canucks off NW tonight.

I would of thought so, but someone told me the Lions had to move to another radio station instead.

Naslund sounds like he's come to play. What's this groin injury about? HOpe it's not something to hamper him throughout the season.

I wonder if Keane has played his way onto the team...

Scored during a line change. FYI, the scoring play was nazzy from chubs and slegr.

Cloutier makes a big save on nash.

That Nash plays well against the CAnucks. I'd like him a lot more if he weren't such a suck and a diver

Matty Ohlund.... boarding.

Well... things seem to have really slowed down. Morrison doesn't sound like he's doing all that much out there... hmm or Burtuzzi. It really doesn't sound like this is very serious to the Nucks. The PP sounds pretty usless... weak outside shots from Naslund.

Burke makes a good save on Daniel, screen by King.

Hedberg with a nice outlet pass springs Ohlund. His puckhandling is going to be a nice change this year.

i just hope his puckhandling doesn't inspire Cloutier to try handling it more often ;)

jovo and radivoivich (sp?). quick fight with some big punches. jovo won the fight, although radi got some shots in.

then on the next shift arvedson did something to gratton that pissed him off really bad. canucks got a late pp out of the retaliation.

Sounds as though I missed the best preseason game there was. :(

Some quotes from a review article:

Markus Naslund and Brendan Morrison each marked the board for the first time this pre-season, while Dan Cloutier and Johan Hedberg shared the shut-out.

Keane almost certainly earned some ink on Brian Burke letterhead tonight. He had no points, and didn't register a shot, but was plus-1 in 13:26 of ice time and checked like the three-time Stanley Cup winner he is.

Todd Bertuzzi drifted around like a surly bear banging and thrashing in the corners when he wasn't muscling into the slot for a shot on goal. He set-up Morrison's third period powerplay marker that put Vancouver up by two.

Hedberg again displayed a stick that puts half the defenders in the league to shame. With just seconds left in a Mattias Ohlund penalty he corralled a dump-in, stepped up with Coyote checkers converging, and threaded a 40-foot breakaway pass to centre ice just as the big Swede stepped out of the box. Sean Burke gloved Ohlund's wrist shot, but Hedberg should still get an assist just for making the pass.

Once again Jason King made it next to impossible for Canuck coaching staff to send him down. He was a fury on the wing with the Twins. He had three shots in the third and was shockingly sound defensively as Vancouver choked the Dogs off late.

You don't see Ed Jovanovski drop the gloves very often, but when he does, it's scary. He swings mellon-busters every time. Just ask Adam Deadmarsh. Well, now you can ask Branko Radivojevic. He challenged Jovocop at centre ice in an attempt to lift his team. There were only three punches thrown. Jovo gave one, took one, and then crumpled the scrappy Coyote winger with a concrete right to end it.

Chris Gratton went loopy like a carny in a bottle of whisky trying to get at Magnus Arvedson. A lot of stretched sweaters and few leather rashes, but no fists thanks to some superb grappling by referees Terry Gregson and Kelly Sutherland. It could have easily gone nuclear.

The Coyotes spent the next 20-minutes trying to chase down Arvedson for some unseen infraction. They never caught him and never caught up on the scoreboard either.

I wonder what Arvy did to get under the skin of Gratton and the 'Nucks are really going to benefit from Hedberg's puck handling skills for sure. As someone else already said... hope Cloutier doesn't get any bright ideas and try to imitate Hedberg here.
