Curious, was anyone a member of HF Boards when the Kings were in the playoffs? Did this site exist?

::One in the Kings forum where you'll have a lot of rope to say what's on your mind about both teams::

^If the Kings are losing add me to the list that needs a lot of rope

This should be fun.

I think they key for the Kings is stealing a game early, hopefully game 1. Then the fan base/media hysterics will crush the Canucks. If the Kings come with a relaxed, nothing-to-lose attitude, I think they'll take it.

Game one is huge. If the Kings get a win, there will be tremendous pressure on the Canucks.

Go Kings!

An old Smyth Division foe.

I like the match up, Kings stay in the same time zone and it's only a 2 1/2 hour flight.

Kings in 6, they take games 1, 3, 4 and 6

Also Vancouver hasn't been that good lately, they're very mediocre on the road, and they have some injuries on defense.
SO wins...


Cheers to a great playoff matchup. I have a feeling this one could be the most exciting.

Good luck folks, this was a match-up I was excited to watch if it worked out that way. I think Smyth's veteran presence and knowledge of the Canadian play-off atmosphere will be huge in keeping the younger guys on track for those first two games in Vancouver. If they can keep from letting the crowd get to them they should be fine.

I think Vancouver's lines will look more like this imo (slight differences)

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Demitra-Kesler-Samuelsson
Raymond-Wellwood-Hansen
Pettinger-Rypien-Bernier

I don't think the Canucks start the playoffs with Grabner. I could be wrong, but I think the Canucks use Pettinger instead for his penalty killing & faceoffs.

Just a hunch.

There are some classy Canuck posters in here, but the majority of that fanbase is an abomination. I hate them more than any other team in the league because of it.

I hate the Canucks and am not looking forward to this match up. All year long this series has been a grind to watch.

Actually, there's a good chance none of them even dress a single game in this series. Our 4th line is probably Hansen-Pettinger-Bernier.

just read through this thread... some misinformation about the Canucks, and thought I'd provide some actual info on the team as well...

They also have a sub-.500 record on the road. They're the only playoff team where that is the case. If the Kings can manage to steal one game in Vancouver, they'll have a good chance.
The defense is missing a big piece... Mitchell is out and likely gone for these playoffs. But they have the rest of the guys all back, and all should be fully healthy by the start of the series.

As far as the goals allowed, the Canucks actually have a pretty big gap in goal differential.

I'd also take the road record with a grain of salt... their road record has improved consistently through the year after starting off horribly and playing a big chunk of that without Daniel and several games with Luongo out at the same time. Between October and February, their road record improved each month, and after the first two months has been over .500 each month. They also finished the 14-game road trip with a solid 8-5-1 record.

Also Vancouver hasn't been that good lately, they're very mediocre on the road, and they have some injuries on defense.
The road record is explained above... and there's only one injury on defense. As for as the Phoenix vs. Vancouver thing, overall season records have a lot of factors effecting them including divisions and schedules.

The Canucks however are 2-0-2 against the Coyotes this year.

And as far as match-ups with LA go, the Canucks are 3-1 against the Kings this season, with their only loss the blowout loss recently, but they won 3 straight prior to that... the Kings scored 12 goals in those 4 games, including the 8 goals in their only win (3.0/game) while allowing 12 as well.

The Kings have a much better record against the Coyotes, going 3-2-1 this season against them, while scoring 20 goals in those 6 games (3.33) while also allowing 20 goals in those games.

So is Phoenix a better team? The Canucks have not lost in regulation to them this season, and they have a better record against the Kings this season, than the Kings do against Phoenix. So which is the easier match-up?

the only one of those 3 that is a regular right now is Rypien - and that's because Johnson is out for another 3-5 weeks.

The starting lineup for Vancouver should look like this:

Daniel-Henrik-Burrows
Demitra-Kesler-Samuelsson
Raymond-Wellwood-Grabner
Hansen-Rypien-Bernier

the extras are Hordichuk, Glass and Pettinger.


With that said, it should be a good series... wish we had Mitchell around to cover Kopitar, but the Canucks strength is their offense now and they will rely on that and hope Luongo can bail them out when needed.

The Canucks do have 6 25 goal scorers this year .. you won't find many teams that have those kind of numbers. The Kings by comparison have just 1 - with Brown almost there at 24, and Smyth who would have been there if he played all season.. still the depth clearly favors Vancouver.

This should also be a big playoffs for the Sedins, who are still trying to prove they aren't just regular season monsters and can perform in the playoffs. They were PPG in the playoffs last year, and will be looking to improve on that. Both have had phenomenal seasons, Henrik with a franchise record setting 112 points, and Daniel was on pace for 111pts, had he not missed those 19 games. Still while out for 19 games, he still managed to outproduce the Kings scoring leader (Kopitar), while the Canucks have 2 other producers (Kesler, Burrows) who put up better numbers than the Kings #2 guy (Brown).

Just a hunch.

Hansen has grit and would slide onto the 4th line nicely....I think that because of this, they can afford to play Grabner instead of Pettinger..but ya u never know. You very well could be right.

One thing I am fairly sure of, is the fact that Raymond and Kesler will play together. They really give the Canucks that solid second line. Kesler is a ppg player, Raymond is a 25 goal guy...and Samuelsson scored 30 this year. With Burrows a lock for the Sedin wing I dont see them breaking up that line. Unless you do use Grabner for a speed line of Raymond Kesler Grabner. (that would leave Demitra and Samuelsson on the third line which is a testiment to the Canucks depth)

Revised Canucks lineup IF NO GRABNER

Sedin Sedin Burrows
Raymond Kesler Samuelsson
Demitra Welly Hansen
Pettinger Rypien Bernier

WITH GRABNER
Sedin Sedin Burr
Raymond Kesler Grabner
Demitra Welly Samuellson
Hansen Rypien Bernier
I think this is much more dangerous because it gives the Canucks nicer scoring depth on the top 3 lines. Hansen and Bernier are third liners playing on a 4th line. Thats pretty sweet too.

So on the schedule it says games are on Versus, does that mean they are on there exclusively or will FSN do them and Versus will be blacked out?
