26 goal pace, definitely a down year, but danny's getting older and hes been good for 30 for a while now

it only takes one good game by danny to push that pace to 35 though. small sample sizes, random events. don't worry too much

Helps explain the 14.7% on the PP.

Oh great.

Next you'll tell me is that we're facing their backup. :shakehead

Is AV honestly, honestly going to roll with AA ahead of Ballard?

He did it vs. CBJ, he could do it again.

I feel so bad for Ballard. Trade the poor guy. He's been classy as **** during his tenure here, and I only want to see him succeed. He has the tools for it now, I think. I think that his time here has developed his defensive game, and if he can find a way to combine his defensive game with his (long lost) offence, I think he can be a decent top 4 defenceman. I really do.

Nuckles 03-13-2013 11:23 PM

If we get more than 2 goals I will be shocked.

Apparently he gives us a better shot of winning than Alberts.

Translation: AV is ****ed in the head

If they do trade Ballard they should trade him for Vishnovsky.

Ballard + 3rd round pick for Vishnovsky

2 or 3. it's 4, 1 or 0.

Burrows and Higgins score in a 2-1 snoozer win. When Ambien can't sleep, it takes the Nashville Predators.

Agree with your post, but this is an oxymoron :laugh:

I agree with you on this one. I really hope they can score though maybe 3-1 or 4-2. Don't worry Saturday will be fun. Millionaires jersey and its time to get payback against the Wings.

I wouldn't say it's a down year. Some times the Sedins are streaky and Danny could go on a streak and net 15 goals in 20 games and bump that average up as you said. I'm not worried at all about the Sedins in comparison with some other worries with the team atm.

I've been an AV supporter for a while now, but he's killing us with some of these moves. If the team's healthy and struggling, fine, scratch and demote some guys who play poorly.

But Schroeder and Ballard have not played all that poorly for my money, and with Bieksa and Kesler out, and the team struggling, you simply cannot afford to dress inferior guys like Alberts and Ebbett over them in hopes of digging your way out of it. Especially not both at the same time.

I think the Higgins like should be the second line in my opinion. Overall Booth deserves a promotion with all those power moves he just needs to convert.

I asked the magic 8 ball about tomorrow's game (ask8ball.net). It said "outlook not so good". Probably just as effective as AV's coin.

Nah, this is the better explanation:

Shouldn't surprise anything. AV has favourites - as does *any* NHL coach. Some guys can look like complete **** in his own zone but can do no wrong (For **** sakes, he can almost single-handedly cost us a playoff series and still not be in the doghouse while the other can commit one or two mistakes and they're sentenced to purgatory no matter how well they've been playing).

It said the Canucks will most likely win the cup in 2015.

To put that in perspective, Stamkos has 20.

Yeah the boston coach favorites' are Chara, Marchand and other good players, the pittsburgh coach favors Crobsy, Malkin, Neal; AV favors Aaron Rome, Andrew Alberts, Andrew Ebbett, and Lukas Kraijcek! :skeptic:

oyvey 03-14-2013 12:44 AM

I wouldn't label the Ballard situation as a case of AV playing favourites. Bieksa's right to look disinterested and commit multiple turnovers in a game without being subjected to the treatment Ballard gets for doing as much is an example of playing favourites, and yes, every coach does that. But sitting Ballard over Barker and Alberts, imo, has nothing to do with the latter two and everything to do with the player he just doesn't want on the team.
