Only if the Oilers are in the playoffs.

Come to think of it, I think it's a good thing to lose a few games to Oilers.

I mean they need something to celebrate until the draft lottery.

Having to celebrate only once a year sucks...

d) Watch him skate to the bench

It's an absolutely bullet proof strategy the last 3 years and Luongo HAS to get HIMSELF out of his head.

It's horrible, you can see it happening like clockwork and it happened again tonight. Luongo has to bear down, no run and hide. Where's the compete?

Now... Bieksa looked horrible on the 2nd goal, Sedins horrible on the 3rd but again... Luongo HAS to be able to make a save when his team screws up infront, beside, behind him.
Even if he can't stop those 2 he HAS to stop that second.

If he gives up the seocnd then he HAS to stop the third.

Instead he lets in a goal, blows a second, and then immediately lets in the third. Horrible. He cost them this game.

Not sure if he cost them the game BUT he certainly didn't keep them in it... and it's hard not to fault him when this pattern of his persists and every team in the league knows it now.

The oilers won, can people not deal with without resorting to bashing Edmonton for no reason?

And take a look at East hastings. I rather walk anywhere in Edmmonton then that dump of a street.
Man you guys won one hockey game against the canucks, and you come over to our boards to trash talk?

Knock off the city and fan bashing. The trolls will be dealt with.

Maddening that the Canucks couldn't take advantage of a (mostly) Whitney-less Oilers.

Keith Ballard back to playing 12:00 a night - 4 minutes less than stud Andrew Alberts.

How the hell does Gillis do this to himself? Keeping Ballard with this coaching staff and letting Ehrhoff go play 25:00 a night elsewhere - will go down as the worst move of his tenure.

Booth reminds me a lot of Higgins. That 2nd line probably could use some playmaking and vision. Could Jordan Schroeder get some looks there this season? Possibly the best suited player in the organization to play with Kesler and Booth.

Cory Schneider should get the start at home tomorrow night. He's simply sharper right now.

Hey folks. Stop responding to trolls. We can't keep up if ten of you rise to defend the honor of your team and city for each one troll post.


The shots at each the cities and fan bases are also not allowed.

Closed for clean up... five minutes.

Tough loss.

Booth looks like a massive upgrade over Samuelsson though, no doubt.

OK wooo. I feel better now. Lets have a constructive discussion.

Start Scheider tomorrow. The best goalie should play.

Was a typical story for Canucks this year. Poor start puts the pressure on Luongo. He bends/breaks. D unravels. Team rallies.

And this whole sentiment that "the team plays better in front of schneider" is a load (oh & stay focused on bad goals, it's all you'll see)

WOAH!!?!?!?!?! The media are the rational ones right now?!?!?!

start schiender until he loses a game PLAIN and simple. 29 other teams should know that if u get 1 or 2 past him, he's easily rattled.
