Just saw the clip of Hossa's complete destruction.

Anybody else missing Torres right about now?

If the Canucks can steal Game 4, we'll have a series folks. Go back home coming off a huge win, the crowd pumping them up, they should play their ***** in Game 5, and the rest is history.

Arguing goalies is like a stooge's routine, it's that old and tired. Furthermore, it doesn't matter. Both goalies have been great all season. That isn't the problem.

The Canucks are discouraged because they have been screwed by the league, again. The NHL took the Sedins bodyguard away in the final, knowing this would cripple the line. This season some fool tried to knock Daniel's head off. How much more of a message can you send? It wouldn't be a lot more obvious if Bettman knee capped Daniel himself.

You can't fight city hall and Bettman is the mayor of Hockeytown.

Well to be honest...for me personally its been a ****ing ****** year. Vancouver on the verge of playoff defeat, the death of my grandpa earlier in the year and my girlfriend not talking to me in months..

I'm emotionally drained from everything..thinking everything would be better but it turns out it hasn't.

I personally am glad we deemed Sturm would be a better contributer...

I know the odds are terrible, but I still believe the Canucks can win this series.
I'd be feeling a lot better about our chances if one of the four games we had to win was against Team Germany instead of LA.

I miss him, but it's hits like those that make him worthless because he's likely getting the boot for a while.

Saw the hit live at the United Center. Was a monster of a hit. For anyone who complains about us not responding when our stars get hit (me being one of those complainers) Chicago really didn't have much of a response either.

I will say that both Chicago and Phoenix looked to be a better team than we have, at least from the last 3 games. Their stadium is much much louder than ours.

...but I still miss Vancouver. Back in 48 hours

Based on the first three games of this series it seems we don't have Torres OR Higgins in the lineup, so either way I think we ****ed that one up.

I want to say that I'm confident the Canucks will win, but if I do, I'm worried I'll jinx it. But I can't say I think they'll lose either because, no matter how likely that might be, I'd like to cling to the hope they'll still win. What do?

Higgy is resiliant. He could have played RW if thats where he were to fit in. We could have brought back him and Torres at a total cap hit on 3.6. Why can't you just admit it when management ****s up?

It was rumored to be a personal thing...not hockey.

That's just a rumour that it was EITHER Torrie or Higgy because there was a beef between the two of them. I have heard nothing of the sort other than this bizarre HFboards rumour. Plus Bieksa, Burrows, Luongo, and others had nothing but good things to say about Torrie as a guy.

Hawk fans were ripping into Crawford outside the arena (and into me for my jersey lol). But I will give the Hawk fans that I talked to credit...they knew their hockey.

Seems like the GDT goes in a loop nowadays:

1) Coho vs. Kassian
2) Higgins vs. Torres
3) Luongo vs. Schneider

We need the game to start now before I go crazy!
