Yeah, the start time is as big an obstacle as the Pens are imo. Haven't seen any stats but I'd bet we don't have a vey good record in 10am games on the East Coast. And I bet Lu's, with his love of pre-game ritual, is even worse.

Speaking of Lu, he's been okay so far, but most nights he's been the second best goalie on the ice imo. We really need him to, at minimum, outplay Fluery tomorrow. I'm hoping his shutout last game kicks off a stretch of LuonGod level play.

I'd rather not risk Luongo getting injured to win one game. It's not about the best chance to win a couple games, its about the best chance to win in the longer term

Possible Penguins lines:

Quote:
Shelly Anderson ‏@pgshelly 6m
Lines at #Penguins practice: Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis Jokinen-Malkin- Kobasew Glass-Sutter-Adams Zolnierczyk-Vitale-Engelland
The Penguins' bottom 6 isn't really much better than the Canucks', but having the two best players in the world in their top 6 makes up for that, I guess.

If I were the coach, I'd put together the Higgins-Kesler-Hansen line to be the designated shutdown unit against Crosby and put the Sedins back together with Santorelli and match them up with the Malkin line. I'd leave the bottom 6 from last game together (Booth-Schroeder-Kassian, Sestito-Richardson-Weise) and have them go mano a mano with their bottom 6.

It's significantly worse. Glass and Adams are both 4th liners who are worse than Weise and they're on their 3rd line.

Surely you have better things to do in life than to sleep until after 10 am. Watching a hockey game is better than sleeping in.

Yeah, I guess if I were being honest it is. Hopefully the Canucks can take advantage of it somehow because if Kesler indeed plays on the top line, one of the Crosby or Malkin lines will own the 2nd line.

Yeah, this is why I don't get the move to keep Kesler on the top line, despite how good it looked last game.

Of all games, this is one in which you'd want your former Selke-winner centering his own line and doing shutdown duties. Makes absolutely no sense to load up the 1st line and leave a severely under-manned 2nd line for either Malkin or Crosby to feast on.

If things are going terrible we can always switch up the lines. I think the Sedins and Kesler will see this as a big test.

Yeah ... I think he's finally established himself as the "face" of the organization among players. There was ambiguity when the team had the Bobby Lu/Schneider situation as Bobby Lu was the "franchise" when he was the clear cut No. 1 and Kesler was probably the most popular player in terms of Jersey sales during the height of Canucks' success in 2011 but yeah I see the tide turning and Henrik separating himself from his brother and people seeing them more as two different individuals rather than two peas from the same pod.

Weise can be solid sometimes, but I've been saying for a long time now that we have to have the ability to roll four lines if we want to even get close to the cup. I think our biggest advantage is that when healthy, we have Higgins and Hansen on the third line, Booth on last. That's pretty big, add Jensen in the lineup (if he has strong performance after injury) we have even more depth. I've always liked how we have players that can sub in top 6 if we have injuries..
