Looking at these numbers, I really want Lu to start for this one.

He talks super slow repeating himself as he does not have much to say. Does not really even have a opinion just a general that the Canucks suck and i am right because look they did not win the Cup. Actually his is not a lot different from many posters on here.
The whole lot of them are terrible. I used to find Gallagher somewhat entertaining but lately it seems like he's set out to sabotage the team. He can't stand when we're good. This team has been crazy successful the last few seasons and guys like Ken Hitchcock and Pierre McGuire (just today) are glowing about our team. Meanwhile our media acts like going 8-2-2 without Ryan Kesler is unremarkable.

Mike Gillis and AV get nowhere near the credit they should here and league wide because our media won't acknowledge it. They're both elite at what they do imo.

They can't comment on the teams success because they don't know enough about the game to figure out why. So instead they butcher stats and make up controversies and otherwise add to the instability of our fan base. People need to enjoy this team. Getting to watch this level of play on most nights is a real luxury imo, I've watched much worse.

Don't really care which goalie plays right now

Want to see our defense step up, specifically Bieksa and Edler. Bieksa has been horrible and needs to get back on track and Edler seems like two different players which change every single shift he takes. He has all the skills of a number one and with Hamhuis beside him, I hope to see Alex really break out.

If anything I want to see Kassian be involved, I don't care if he still struggles offensively, just get some good hits, go into those scrums, maybe get in a fight. Kid needs some spark

I hope Booth plays in this one. He scored his first goal for us against Chicago, in Chicago.

I think this will be a season-defining game like many Chicago games from previous seasons.

Toews was so quiet the last time we played them. I think it was because Kesler wasn't there. I can't wait to see these two harrass each other again. It's not the same chicago rivalry without kesler.

I'm liking our offensive guns more and more, this is clearly a stronger group of forwards with the added young guns then last year.

I'll probably get roasted for this but I would put booth with Kesler and Higgins and tell lappy-Weise-Kassian to hit the snot out of every hawk! That would be a phenomenal 4th line and if the Sedins get roughed up you easily throw kassian up on the top line.

I want to see Edler Garrison and kassian really set a physical tone. I can't wait for his game.

This game will be filled with emotion and be exponentially more eventful than the last one vs Chicago. Book it.

If you want physical play, swap our Weise for Volpatti, he can fight better too

I don't expect this game to have a lot of fireworks or shenanigans physically-wise, it's too important. Chicago is trying to set a record and we are trying to stop them. We play them again right before the end of the season, by that time we will know what the standings are gonna look like and if we need to send a message we can do it then. This one we actually need a win, like really it is a must-win. No dumb stuff. Anybody know who the refs are? Please no O'Halloran, Rooney, or Hebert!

I have a feeling tomorrow's game will end in a blowout, since there is always a blowout game every season between these two teams. I just don't know which way it will go. God help us.

Problem is the Hawks want that style because they'll outplay the fourth line handily and I'd rather not them go anywhere near Chicago's top two lines. If we go with a physical line, they should barely see much ice time.

We beat them 2-1 in a terribly inconsistent game already.

Besides, Emery is starting. We never light up backups.

I'll just watch on my TV since Centre Ice is only $49 this year. Even if I don't get the Habs feed for their game against the Hurricanes because TSN are **********.

This is for BC/Yukon residents only anyway. It's basically for those that are affected by regional blackouts on GameCenter Live.

I find that the higher the stakes, the more emotion and from that emotion you get a lot rough stuff. Both teams try to get lots of hits

Finally a team that we don't seem to struggle against. Dallas and St Louis have had our number FOREVER.

Not saying Chicago will be easier but I look forward to this bounce back victory

We're going to likely have to go through Chicago in the playoffs. May as well get Schneider some more experience dealing with their shooters.
