Awesome GDT, Zombotron!

Compared to what I've seen in the Avs @ Sharks game, the Canucks are not even remotely close in terms of game speed.
Having your first line play at a competetive level during the lockout is paying dividends big time for San Jose right now.

Canucks are not ready yet to keep up with the Sharks. They'll eat us alive, even with outstanding goaltending on our side. You know, Schneider is human after all.

This game is the first real measuring stick. It will show the Canucks how far away they are from the level of play they need to get to.

I'll be happy if we can avoid a blow-out, get out of the game without any serious injuries (as of now half of our roster is an easy target for big hits due to lack of speed), and keep upping our level of play compared to our last outing.

Yes, I am still in humble-pie mode.
