It's obviously a Bure-esque rift between management and Sammuelsson and we're just going to have to wait until Aquaman eats his pride and mends the relationship with Mikky in order for him to retire the number and have him play in the Legends game next season.

WTF...Barker in the lineup again. Jeez.

Looks like Corrado is with Edler. 3rd pairing is Alberts - Barker. That is going to be a disaster. Ballard better not be a healthy scratch.

I will bet anyone 20 bucks that AV is going to match his defensive stalwarts Alberts-Barker up against Kane and Hossa.

Can someone just steal a couple vials of Bieksa and Tanev's blood so we can spin em in a centrifuge in order to get all the plasma and white blood cells concentrated? I will personally inject them with it. They will heal faster.

Google: Blood spinning

Don't think Ballard is a healthy scratch ... he had back spasms last game or something similar. I'd still take a look at Joslin over Barker, but I guess they don't want two new blue liners jumping in simultaneously.

Hmm..Interesting lines

Higgins - Roy - Kesler
Raymond - Lappy - Hansen (i'm guessing Schroeder will take Lappy's spot once he is called up)
Sesitito - Ebbett - Kassian (would like to see Weise instead of Sestito)

Confirms that Ballard is out if Barker is still in.

These last 3 games are meaningless anyway but I was really hoping they were going to get on a roll the last 10 games this year and carry that momentum through to the playoffs. Obviously didn't happen, so you might as well take every precaution to get healthy. Hopefully they will be better prepared for game 1 than they were last year.

So now we have Tanev/Bieksa/Ballard out? More Barker! Yay!

AV just keeps finding room for Ebbett in the line up. We have four NHL calibre centres who could easily slot in 1-4 and we still have ****ing Ebbett as one of our centres. Is it seriously Sestito-Ebbett-Kassian? Good Lord that is going to be the worst group defensively ever.

AV is not stupid enough to throw Weise/Ebbett/Kassian (which is essentially the fourth line) against their top line. Is he?

I don't mind Ebbett on the 4th line, but I'm probably alone on that one. Guy seems to get crapped on just because he's constantly asked to play above his head.

Anyway, worth monkeying around with the lineup these last few games. The Canucks haven't been playing well anyway, so you might as well try some different combos to see what you've got.

This is a home game, why would Ebbett or the 4th line for that matter be out against Toews? And your Dats point is bizarre considering that line didn't get one point last game.

He did against Datsyuk/Franzen/whoever line last game. Datsyuk >>> Toews. I actually think AV believes Ebbett is a Selke calibur centerman.

Daniel-Henrik-Burrows
Higgins-Kesler-Roy
Raymond-Lapierre-Hansen
Weise-Ebbett-Kassian

Looking at our defence...is Schneider ready to face 50 shots?

It's all part of AV's strategy.
Toews will be busy shutting down Ebbett's line so Kes and Hank's lines can score.

Nobody should be judging the defense (as a whole) tonight, we all know it will be brutal.

really like the idea of assembling 2 lines that can score consistently.

And its only natural they promote lappy. Lapierre in the playoffs is very valuable.

Hit, check, defend, and he was great during our run.

I say move kesler to wing, and have higgins-roy-kesler. This way we can have Roy dishing it to both wings.


Corrado's skating is going to really surprise many. Its smooth and effective.

His defensive awareness is comparable to Tanev.

And he has a bit of bieksa's edge to his game.

Really high on Corrado.
