Scapegoating? Most of the team has been embarrassing... who is scapegoating anyone else for Ebbett?

Has everyone forgot about the Edler hit on Smith? I think this game may have a kick to it after all.

Yes he has, and his agent also apparently thinks he's worth 7M over 8 years.

Have fun with that Mike.

Is Smith's agent Anson Carter?

Just really really bad.
Before Sportsnet, there were very few Canucks games on TV. I remember being at Dairy Queen with my middle school hockey team after one of our games and there was a Province article saying that 50 Canucks games would be televised on Sportsnet. That seemed like Christmas back then. Before that, CBC had a few games and I think there were some on BCTV and CHEK.

At 5 on 5, the Blues outshot their opponents by an average of 5 shots per 60 minutes last season. They were a very good team.

I believe the BCTV and CHEK were specialized though. Very few broadcasted like maybe 8 per year or something. I swear I read that somewhere.

Hitchcock hockey has a 1 year lifespan it seems.

I like to think that if the game had been close they'd of played better.
1-0 in the 1st minute vs a team that just had a fire sale & has lost 4 straight.
That just might lead to a little complacency.

Sorry to break the news to his agent, but he's a systems goalie. Nothing more, nothing less.

He probably saw this guy and dollar signs popped up:



In regards to that photo, holy crap Bryz is holding his stick in a terrible place for 5 hole coverage. That's house league level bad.

At least Bryz never posted 2.7+ GAA, or anything below .915 SV% with Tippett at the helm.

I wouldn't be surprised if Mike Smith asks for 5/year for the next 4 or 5 seasons, but 7 for 8 is absolutely ridiculous. Still, I'd rather trade for Loungo then pull in a goaltender who had a career season last year and is 31, plus is back to his average play this season. Loungo has proven himself more than Smith has, and if the price is less than three quarters of a million different of salary/cap hit, I'd trade a few things to bring that on board.

This is true.

If Phoenix ever relocated and Tippett chose to not go... I would actually kidnap him, kidnap AV, and force Gillis to hire him.

Dave Tippett with a talented roster... Drool.

One of the greatest non-Canucks NHL games I've ever watched.

Mike Smith is more of a diva than coho.

I totally forgot about the edler hit on him. This game could be interesting.

Mike Smith has a short memory. His career was DONE if Phoenix doesn't take a chance on him and provide an opportunity to work with Sean Burke. He'd have spent the last two seasons in the AHL.

But...you can see the puck on the left, in the air. He's not trying to cover the 5 hole at that point.

And it only took what, like 2-3 years or so until people were *****ing that 15 or so games were only available on PPV?
