Kesler instantly made Raymond and Hansen useless. The only reason why Hansen was noticeable was because of his ferocious forechecking.

Hamhuis was awful. Bieksa was even worse than awful. The rest were mediocre.

You stop 40 shots and more than one breakaway, that's a stellar game. A lot of saves on 22 grade A scoring chances.

I don't know what you're talking about in terms of questionable goals. Screens and a breakaway? Sheesh.

Not even 3 games in, and he's already back to the same embarrassing stuff as last year. When is he going to learn? Cut the garbage and just play. He resorts to it every time isn't "in the game" or frustrated. And LOL at those few posters trying to criticize Schneider. The score would be an absolute blowout without his work.

He made some awful decisions to pinch... one lead to the the 2-on-1 with Stalberg taking the shot.

But the whole team's D played like garbage, they were a step too slow picking up their man and it led to all sorts of miscommunication and chances for the Hawks.

Just a brutal game that they stole the point from.

The main boards is so hell-bent on making it look like Hansen Cooke'd Hossa that no one made a thread about the Hawks tying the Ducks' no-regulation-loss streak.

Thought Hamhuis was actually worse than Bieksa and the worst D by a big margin. He didn't have as many brainfarts, but he was just awful, with no redeeming qualities, the whole night.

Hope Raymond and Hansen are back with Schroeder. That line was flying and dominating at ES.

Yeah, Schneider was far and away the best player on the ice - for either team - in this game. The only reason we really had a point.

It's nice that the Canucks were able to bury a couple of pucks to get to overtime, but the level of defense (or lack thereof) they played in this game is embarrassing. The first period, at least, was played with effort. The second and third were pretty awful.

Jeez people, Kesler literally just came back, and we're already on his case?How about we wait until he gets into midseason form before judging.

Chicago could have scored five seconds into OT and I'd be okay with it because Vancouver stole a point out of a game they should have been absolutely annihilated in.

Agreed. Plus he was caught out of position and aimlessly chasing the play far to often.

AV is a ****ing idiot. hansen raymond and schroeder were playing great together, but he completely ****ed that up tonight in our biggest game of the season. The coach is the problem. They've played like crap since the boston regular season game. No motivation to end that regular season and none in the playoffs. MG should have fired AV at the end of the season, but all he did was throw Lu under the bus. Great job, AV.

This. Maybe put Schroeder on a wing to give them a playmaker?

I think Kesler's performance from last year is coming back - he'll score on PPs and basically black hole his entire line at even strength.

He could at least try to make the hash marks before trying to snipe it.

This. AV needs to ****ing go.

Chicago is scary good but I still don't think their goaltending will stay as good as they're playing right now. Still hate them

Midseason form? He was shooting into shin pads and dangling into the corner in his midseason form.

The Team seriously needs to upgrade their D. I just don't understand how nearly every single Chicago player tries and is able to dance across layers of our D (doesn't really matter which D man they face).

Agreed, but surely you have to conceed that it is frustrating for the fans that this team is quite a bit worse at the moment with him back. Ironic, considering how much we were all whining about how we wouldn't make the playoffs without him, and how we didn't even want the lookout to be over if he wasn't playing.

Watch them throw the book at Hansen. I'm sure Ron MacLean will have a nice video montage of Hansen where he repeatedly shows the clip of Hansen crosschecking the ref.

Goaltending is the least of this team's worries, not sure how anyone can say Schneider played poorly tonight.

Luongo and Schneider have been covering up a lot of our warts for while now. This team has some pretty impressive personnel but we're not playing like it.

It was Kesler. Scorekeepers probably saw the 7 but not the 1 in front of it.

I keep suggesting that and people immediately flame me with 'oh, why would you put a Selke winner on a rookie's wing?'

Because otherwise he's a black hole offensively? I could give him a break if it looked like he was going to actually start cycling or get a new move, like passing the puck.

So bring the flaming lol.
