If Luongo starts and plays lights out again. He can solidify himself the best goalie in the NHL. And we go brag about it on the main board. :P

Bachman was in against the Flames. Lehtonen is likely to start this game and he has been excellent this season, especially of late.

LickTheEnvelope 02-14-2013 11:54 AM

Schneider owns Dallas. Don't know why he wouldn't start.

Is it weird that I have more confidence when they play against established goalies rather than obscure backups?

IIRC, didn't Bachman stone wall us last year, whereas we seemed to have a lot of success against Lehtonen?

You do RC.

Looks like Kesler is making his return tomorrow.

‏@botchford
Not a bad look, sedins-burrows, Higgins-kesler-Kassian, Raymond-Schroeder-Hansen, volpatti-lapierre-weise.

EXCELLENT...

Another twist in Malhotra mystery. Manny not at practice, but Kesler in blue practice jersey and Booth still in grey (no contact) jersey.

Omg, someone listened to me.:amazed:

Tiranis 02-14-2013 01:06 PM

Nobody got waived today so unless they can put Malhotra on IR, those lines are impossible.

Would be beyond wonderful to see Kesler back in action tomorrow, but the worry over Manny continues.

I'll throw this out there again... Canucks hold a press conference tomorrow to announce that Manny is retiring.

No they aren't, see Minnesota when the played the Canucks. They put Kassian on a non-roster slot for one game and then placed him on Waivers the day after. This allowed them to dress Jared Spurgeon. There is a loop hole.

It crossed my mind. Maybe takes up full-time coaching instead? He certainly has a lot to teach.

Unless I'm mistaken, they only have 22 players on their roster. They had room for Spurgeon either way.

Well it looks like we'll find out soon. They'll be making an announcement sometime today.

His agent did say he'll be with the organization for a long time.

crazycanuck 02-14-2013 01:21 PM

@News1130Sports
Breaking - Manny Maholtra's agent Paul Krepelka just told CKWX that the Canucks will be announcing soon what's going on with Manny.

@News1130Sports
Krepelka coudn't comment but says everything will be cleared up soon.

‏@News1130Sports
Krepelka did say Manny "will be in Vancouver a long time - it's his new home". Take from that what you will.

Coach or Player Development role is my guess.

Mr. Canucklehead 02-14-2013 01:23 PM

New thread opened to discuss the Malhotra situation.

Unless I'm mistaken, they only have 22 players on their roster. They had room for Spurgeon either way.

No they had to make room, they called up Kuemper to start because of Harding's MS medication issues. 3 goalies + 6 defense + 12 Forwards = 21 Skaters at the very least and according to NHL.com Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Nate Prosser were skaters who were scratched for the game. That's 23 players (roster limit) and then you add Kassian.

Although it looks like Manny is goin on the IR.
