Does anyone really like the fact that Luongo has a "new style" ? I'd think he'd be better off just focusing on using what has worked for him his whole career. We got the guy because he was apparently an established superstar in the league ready to do great things on a good team, not as a project.
Seemed to me like most of his issues were just mental; getting rattled, playing nervous and over-committing etc. The fact that he has to change the way he plays kind of worries me.
I'm wondering if you see the irony of criticising him for a trait that has directly led to him being one of the foremost athletes in the world at his chosen position. That being: He is never content. He's never sitting back and going "I've got it all figured out." The best artists, musicians, athletes, scientists (or whatever) are always learning and adding to their skillset, no matter what level they are at. The best of us are forever students, or forever projects -- if you like.
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Staal injured? I think Letestu is centering their 3rd line...not sure though.
Oh yeah totally slipped my mind.
All the better for us then, no?
It really depends though, Canucks have a terrible habit of mimicking the other team. When we go in against bottom feeders we play like one (buff) but when we go against top contenders we play like one also (detroit).
Hopefully we play like a contender.
I want Ballard to have a beast game so AV can stop being a derp.
Would like to see a consistent 60 min effort tonight. Especially on the top line. Aware that the bros. have been carrying much of the offense, but would like to see them step it up at both ends of the ice.
Expecting Ballard to see limited ice time, but hopefully he has a solid "simple" game. Anyone aware if its Fleury or Johnson getting the start?
Everytime someone posts this clip, I get excited from the title and ultimately disappointed because I expected a single huge hip-check taking out both Crosby and Malkin at the same time or at the very least, two huge hipchecks on both of them on the same shift.
