Is it just me or is Slegr a big puck hog, especially in the offensive zone

No idea what that goal looked like...listening online tonight. Shorty and Larscheid mentioned that Cloutier was completely out of position on the second. Yes they mentioned other errors but it probably still should have been stopped according to them.

Slegr is too weak! Rick nash had his way in front of the net.. Allen would have kept that puck out.

I think it only didn't look like his fault because the 1st goal was obviously his fault. I'm not sure what he was doing on the first or second goal, it should be 2-1 Vancouver, if we had Denis in net. Not Cloutier's best game that's for sure.

The Canucks were having a great game until Cloutier went crazy and lost his composure mid way thru the 2nd. Very unfortunate when a goalie gets hot like that and can't keep the puck out. Ugly goaltending display from Cloutier.

This one is going to wrap up as a very bitter loss.

Arevedson/Linden/Cooke line had another strong game, Naslund had a few chances, Bertuzzi the same, but this game was lost on goaltending.

They had a goalie who won it for them, ours lost it for us.

Why Nash? He played decent and got a goal off his ass. Marchant had a goal and 2 assists and played a much bigger role.

Well, we aren't going to win all the games. To take good and bad out of this game:

The Bad

- Cloutier could have been better
- The top line, while scoring a pretty goal, didn't finish enough chances
- Too many botched odd-man rushes

The Good

- This cannot be understated: Our team never quit. Unlike a bunch of other teams out there, you could tell that the boys wanted to win badly, especially with the fire they played with in the last 5 minutes. Lesser teams would have rolled over. We didn't.
- Mattias Ohlund had a whale of a game
- Our third line (shutdown) was very good. Scoreless, yes, but excellent defensivly, and were great on the PK for most of the game (can't really blame 'em for the Vyborny powerplay goal).

I didn't get to see the game (well, 2 minutes each period on the NHL network) but I did listen on the radio. How was sedin-sedin-ruutu? Personally I don't think we should be rotating King out. I'd stick to rotating the 4th liners with each other.

But to any of us who've watched the games, Naslund has played very well in all three games. He is skating like nuts, and is clearly our most skilled player. Did you miss his play on the Morrison goal?

at least Cloutier's had a good game this season. Naslund... our captain, anchor, and leading scorer has been invisible for all 3 games this season.

Note to Crow, don't scratch King and Allen.

It's nice to see the Sedins truely playing as a 2nd line. Gives me real hope. If King can keep his scoring touch at this level we should be a-ok.

Benching Allen baffles me more though, Columbus is a team that has some soft forwards, Allen is one of if not our toughest defencemen, so it would make more sense to have him out there then not.

A lovely -2 on the night, and directly responsible for not taking Nash out on the winning goal.

But hey, everyone here swears he's just great, and really physical in front of the net.

I just don't understand the naming of the goalies, it's like they *want* a goalie controversy. Because now they have to come back with Hedberg against Detroit.

In hindsight Allen should have played, in fact Allen should play the rest of the way, Sopel or Slegr should sit. (preferably but doubtfully Sopel)

I only had a chance to listen to a few parts of the game as I was busy making turkey mmm.. but!. wtf was Cloutier thinking? keep your damn mouth shut and let other people do your damn fighting.
Why does the team appear to only play **** defence when they are in front of Cloutier?

Can someone smack Crawford across the head? I don't see any reason at all to try a Sedin-Sedin-Ruutu line. Ruutu and Keane are both 4th liners and 1 of them should sit.

A goaltending controversy was inevitable at some point during this season. That much was clear the second we acquired Hedberg. Personally I'm hoping that Hedberg plays his way to the starting role.

This is early in the season, i really don't want to bash Cloutier too much, however, if you have watched all three games you can see Naslund is making a lot of effort at improving different aspects of his game this season. He shown he is willing to be physical and be very responsible defensively, which might not be that vital in the regular season, but those are aspects of the game that is very important in the playoff. Yzerman had learned that and Modano had learned that before they were able to lead their teams to the Cup. Beside Nazzy has been good offensively, the puck just is not going in at this stage, it is just puck luck. The things that the Canucks stress on this season is total team play and discipline. i mean be patience on the PK time and play well defensively on 5 on 5, and do not take any stupid penatly. Cloutier had took the stupid penatly that arguably costed the team the game. Canucks were starting to take it to the Columbus and looking forward to bulid on the lead before that Cloutier incident. And the lack of maturity being shown by Cloutier is way more of a concern than the lack of puck luck by Nazzy.
