Too much to hope for they take out their anger on the coyotes?


Yup probably.



Even if they do they will probably feel so good about themselves that they slack off and get destroyed by the kings.

If people thought the Preds game the other night was boring, buckle up

I suspect Schneider gets the start against the Coyotes, and if he plays well it wouldn't surprise me to see him get the game against the Kings too.

Hopefully Bowness can use the next two days to figure out the D pairings. *Hint, go back to what was working*

He can't with Bieksa hurt.

If Bieksa going down leads to an 8-3 loss then blow it up because they aren't winning a cup without kings level luck.

Honestly, I would just slide Alberts beside Hamhuis for a game or two. Obviously you aren't going to be giving that pair the 22-23 minutes a game we usually see HamJuice get, but you can spread the minutes around and build on the chemistry we saw from the Edler/Tanev and Garrison/Ballard pairings.

Someone brought up a good point in the Red Wings GDT, if the Sens can survive losing Karrlson and still play solid defensive hockey, the Canucks coaching staff should be able to find a way to deal with the Bieksa injury for a game or two.

Sadly, I have zero confidence that the coaching staff will make any adjustments here. If I were to wager, I suspect we will see the same defensive pairings that we saw earlier today.

I think we should try...

Hamhuis-Ballard
Edler-Tanev
Garrison-Alberts

Hopefully with Hamhuis, Ballard can play his game (even if it's on his off side)

Agreed. I wouldn't even mind seeing the Panther pair stick and have AHLberts play with Hamhuis. Would really like to see Edler and Tanev stay together though. Anyways I predict a boring 3-1 win.

Wouldnt mind AA with Hamhuis, he can probably babysit him better than the rest of our D. I also like the Eder-Tanev pair. I dont have much of a preference between
Hamhuis Ballard
Garrison Alberts

or

Hamhuis Alberts
Ballard Garrison

Am I the only one who thought Alberts didn't play too bad of a game, considering he hasn't played since April 2012? I mean he wasn't bobby orr but he was solid.

No, I'm with you. Thought he looked decent out there. I would prefer to have Bieksa back, of course, but Alberts was not the biggest thing to go wrong yesterday.

He was running around a bit. That Brunner goal he chased into the corner to a player that was already being covered, then proceeded to back right into the shooting lane screening Lou.

edler ballard
hamhuis garrison
alberts tanev?

Time to make Doan wish he signed in Vancouver. Enjoy your last years in Quebec, Doaner!

Our first game vs pacific division teams is 0-2-1 so far. Not getting my hopes up especially just after a 8-3 blowout. Predicting 4-3 pheonix.

Didn't we beat Anaheim 5-0?

EDIT: Oh, first games. Nevermind.
