got bumped to the 2nd line after that sick pass, I'd say Schroeder's stock went up

Hammer.

If he had more offensive tools, he'd win a Norris. Not even kidding.

Yeah, and when that one guy gets injured ... well, maybe it's better to win by committee.

The Canucks have the horses, they just need to learn how to work together. When the team plays like a freaking team, they look extremely good. Unfortunately this season it happens for like 5 minutes at a stretch.

So true. Lucky bounces and fluke goals happen all the time, but they only go in against the team that's playing in their end.

But he doesn't. He's an echelon below a Suter.

We're talking about shutdown capacity here. Talking purely D-zone, he's top 10 in the NHL.

Canucks should work with Garrison on his stride. He could be a legit all-around top pairing D that can play both sides if he just had better speed to jump up into play and get back. His lateral movement is actually pretty good so that's not so much a problem.

Not with the way he's playing this year. Suter is still better in his own zone and always has been.

Are you sure that is what AV is telling them?
From my viewpoint it looks like when other teams turn up the heat our team starts running around in their own end and can barely get the puck out to center.
On the Berglund post Edler had a chance to put it deep and turned it over to the defenceman. Hamhuis made a similar play. Too bad Tanev was hurt as he and Garrison seem to be the only two calm defenders back there.

To be fair, that's the only strategy he knows.

That poster shouldn't even be taken seriously, he called Tanev a dirty player

With one of the worst lineups in the decade, it was the right thing to do.

No Kesler,Booth,Kassian or Tanev.

What exactly was the lines in the last half of the 3rd ...

Fair enough, but excluding Sedins, the whole team is having problems right now.

why do ppl keep questioning whether AV asks them to sit back during the 3rd period, do you guys not hear his trademark "DEEEEEP" holler everytime someone crosses center ice

This team really can't catch a break, can it?

He played really well. Helped win a puck battle on Hansens goal and the pass to weise. Hopefully he he finds his shot but good game. Hopefully he can keep it up though i would like a replacement for this year Schoeder has shown to be a good fill in for short periods. If these periods get longer and longer.

Not sure if AV tells his forwards not to skate or they do that on their own, either way it needs to stop. You stay strong on the puck defending a lead you do not just float around conserving energy. Awin is a win and this team neede one.

This is a trend.

Most teams are prone to panicking under high pressure. However, this is much more evident than just under pressure.


Post note: I thought Edler played very well.

Yes and no. I think part of it is his willingness to jump up. Errs on the side of caution too much IMO.

But yes, if he did correct that part of his game, whether through improved straight line speed and/or will to jump, he would be a very versatile top pair guy.
