I say we let him play with fellow swede Hornqvist and Legwand at centre. Give him a real shot at putting up offense
O'Reilly is a playmaker with two shooters on his wings tonight. If Bergfors wants to earn more ice time, he's gotta prove himself with those linemates tonight...

While I agree with you you have to be able to catch up to Kesler to put him on his rear. Catch-22. Maybe we can morph Spaling and Geoffrion into one player. Oh wait, that's Mike Fisher.

Or we could just beat Kesler into submission. I like that idea better.


And playing with Cal O'Reilly is nothing to be excited about.

Playing with Cal O'Reilly was definitely something worth getting excited about last season. Maybe he can add to his one point tonight with a couple of shoot-first type guys playing his wings.

Tonight's 8th Maxim:

If you don't shoot, you can't score.

Guys, 12 shots is not going to beat any NHL team, especially one that went to the cup finals a few months ago.

We know how to beat Vancouver, we just need to actually do it.

I feel like ORLY getting put with two snipers is Trotz saying "this is it. Produce or go on waivers/AHL" This is his last shot.

A few big parts of that are also not playing.

Easy win for the Canucks tonight. They will pretty much have their way with us. Lou won't hear many boos in this shutout.

I'm thinking Lindback could start against Calgary, but clearly the team is taking things one game at a time right now...

What's funnny is that over on the Canucks board a lot (most?) are predicting a Nashville win tonight. Vancouver is without exception HORRIBLE every October, the only hope is that after gettings spanked our last game the team may be motivated to come out swinging. But Nashville may be similarly motivated.

Didn't know you guys had so many injuries, that might be the difference-maker. The Sedins are playing strong, but that's about it, almost no secondary support although flashes from the long-awaited rookie Hodgson. Defense is quietly but consistently strong.

As for the question on Kesler, he is just flying out there. Word was that the Canucks wouldn't let him back until he was 100% better, not even any stiffness or soreness from his surgery, and he sure looked like he was 110% last game, so that may be where the team turns for secondary scoring.

On the Nashville end, I'm really excited to see Smith, I've heard a lot about him. Too bad Fisher's out, he's a difference-maker, and of course, Rinne has established himself league-wide as a goalie to be feared.

Yeah especially with the late start tonight and early one Saturday. Wouldn't be surprised but at this point it's hard to not want Pekka in there.

Pekka is really the only guy winning us games so far. I'd rather start Lindback when our offense starts to get in a groove to take some of the pressure off him.

Is it confirmed that Bergfors is playing tonight?

Time to get revenge against the canuckleheads.

We have a lot of injuries but the depressing part isn't necessarily the injuries themselves, but the pathetic lack of offensive depth we have which makes those injuries so valuable.

I don't know too much about the Canucks from the standpoint of how slow they start every year and things like that, but from our side you can throw all those things out right now. We're desperate to get something going and it shows. We got outworked Monday at Edmonton and honestly that NEVER happens to a Preds team.

Count in the fact that we had 12 shots the entire game, and had just played two pathetic home games before that and you have a recipe for desperation. We traditionally suck in Vancouver (how we won 2 of 3 there in last year's playoffs I'll never know) and all that combined is why a lot of pessimism is raining down over here.

I have the feeling that Rinne is the type of goalie that ells the coach when he needs a night off

Have we traded/waived O'Reilly yet? If not can we please sit him FOREVER! Oh yeah I can't stand the Nucks and I hope someone gives Burrows what he deserves. Just win Preds... That is all.

That's the truth. Rinne would gladly play every minute of every game if it were up to him. Trotz has to make that decision for him at times, although right now it'd definitely be hard to ask him to sit out while the team looks to turn it around. That being said, he's good friends with Lindback and supports Anders whenever he's in there...
