I don't believe this pairing has received enough negative attention yet

AV is usually good at pulling rabbits out of hats in these situations.

Higgins is playing, so no way he scores.

How can that be, he's such a **** coach that can't motivate players or put them in positions to succeed with absolutely no system play OR ability to adjust to oppositions tactics???



Big test for the team, need more unsung heroes to step up. Tanev, Schroeder last game... Alberts, Gordon, Sestito, Lappy... who's up?

Canucks squeek it out.

Against all odds as well, I think the PP nets a couple today. This may be the turnaround game.

D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Burrows
Booth - Kesler - Kassian
Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen
Higgins - Lapierre - Volpatti
Weise

Hamhuis - Edler
Garrison - Bieksa
Ballard - Tanev

It is a shame. Personally, I believe this healthy roster could do what the 2011 roster did.

On a side note... Yzerman has to do something doesn't he? Team is in a freefall, down 4-0 at the end of the 1st period vs only 15 shots with one goalie pulled and an unknown back-up in. You HAVE to think Luongo's price has gone down a bit...

I think tomorrows game (if Lou plays) could be his last in a Canuck uni.

I do not agree. Bieksa is flawless always.

I can't imagine too many veterans on that team were happy when they saw the direction that Yzerman went with the goaltending. makes you wonder how committed they were to winning this year when they didn't go out and fix their most obvious need. I think Tampa is far more likely to sell because it doesn't seem they were committed to winning this year in the first place.

I believe LeBrun has said that Steve has zero interest in Luongo.

Sorry to derail the thread with this... if SY has zero interest then he's not doing his job. Maybe at the original price but my guess is that GMMG has dropped it and that SY could probably have him for a roster player/prospect OR pick.

OK... back to LA.

Already have three broadcast crews working three games tonight, I'm guessing.

Seems more like a positive we're going to miss the pre-game show to me.

I'm hoping you're being sarcastic. Outside of Vasilevsky, who won't be ready for years and years, they have nothing in their goaltending pipeline. Lindback is probably a decent backup but he can't handle a starter's load. He hasn't lit it up at any other level either so it's not like there's a record of excellence.

I actually think that - all things being equal - those are solid lines and pairings. Garrison/Hamhuis have been strong, and Ballard/Tanev are a good pair. If Bieksa/Alberts is a total disaster, start rotating things from there.

The forwards are about as good as they're going to get given the injuries.

I really want to see how this Raymond/Schroeder/Hansen line fares against the big bodies of LA, especially in a second line role, will they match up against the Richards line? I'm assuming we are going head to head on top lines (worked out well for us last time). If they can hold their own against Penner/Richards/Carter, then I am confident going forward
