I think it's just Tanev he's referring to as unsure about the playoffs... but I could be wrong. Very unclear.

I wish Chris's brother could shed a little light on this for us. But given the time of year and how teams like to keep injuries quite he probably shouldn't.

It'll all work out for the playoffs. The law of averages makes it so.

What now huh?

What a complete joke our front office is, Gillis needs to be 100% responsible for not picking up another D.
People laugh at you for over-reacting, calling for peoples heads, consistently saying this team isn't playoff calibre, blah blah blah. All you do is over-react, and it's evident by the Red, upgraded sized fonts you're using.

We never laughed at you for saying we should've picked up a depth D. In fact, I'm almost positive that everyone wanted one on deadline day.

Both guys finished their games in which they were injured , so hopefully the Canucks are just being cautious with the playoffs on the horizon.

I've had this theory that they are faking injuries to rest guys.

If I had to guess it would be that Staph infection is back for Higgy. Hope I'm wrong.

By having tanev and higgins be out for a whole 5 games on a road trip that could very well determine whether we seal third place or not?

If it was just faking, I could understand a game or two to rest...but 5 games? (not including the games tanev's already missed)

This actually makes sense, Tanev is our best D-man, he gets rested. Higgins is our best forward, he gets rested.

WAKE UP SHEEPLE.

AV denied it.

I'm hoping this is the team's plan in action of being extra cautious with important players towards the end of a shortened season.

The team only needs 5-6 points to secure a spot.

Yeah, I don't think there is any faking. My hope is that they are just trying not to take any chances and have these guys 100% for the start of the post-season.

Minny on their tails, Anaheim within striking distance.

Not a great time to be sitting people out to be extra cautious I think

What about it? That wasn't my point. I just stated that getting a depth D was important and what we were all hoping for.

So while what you say is true (our depth is weak), my point was that all you do is over-react and that's why your opinions aren't nearly taken as seriously as they could be. Vindicating yourself by huge red fonted words saying "I WAS RIGHT!!! THATS WHAT YOU GUYS GET FOR LAUGHING AT ME", doesn't make anyone want to take you any more seriously.

Last year's lesson: rather be healthy going into the first round than have a higher seed.

Good thing is that we have centers now less pressure on the defense than before. Not good news by any stretch but we are still better off then we were a week ago. The d did well last night overall. I think Alberts is even useful against non elite players. Ballard will likely get better. As long as Tanev can return in good form it is a small problem. Losing Kesler was a biggggg problem. In the 2010-11 season and last year we lost a lot of important d men and kept going forward. Even last year Aaron Rome played a ton of games without stopping the team from winning.

O.O

WHY CAN'T WE HAVE NICE THINGS?!

Seriously, this team is cursed. Higgins had one the best games of his career and ends up injured. We need to start bubble wrapping everyone.

Well that's good news. Higgins was fine post game in his interview so it's hard to speculate about whats wrong with him.

Let's stick to talking hockey rather than making things personal with each other, everyone.
