AV should show that to the team... If that cant motivate them to win, nothing will.

Mitchell was at the gameday skate today (as a spectator)... that's all the motivation they need.

GO NUCKS!

Let's put it this way... it wouldn't surprise me at all if they did.
Shane O'Brien's nominee for the testicle spear would be Adam Burish:
Quote:
Shane O'Brien doesn't trust Adam Burish when it comes to old-time hockey code.

O'Brien said it would be "gutless" to go after Sami Salo's injured testicle tonight.

"If you're going to go after a guy who has problem down below, you have to take a look in the mirror," O'Brien said. "When it's the family jewels, you don't do it. But Burish, that rat, he might do it. I don't trust him."
http://communities.canada.com/thepro...-testicle.aspx

We have already had Ladd take a shot at O'Brien's fresh stitches and re-open the cut and Dave Bolland chopped Daniel Sedin's previous injured foot/ankle... so there is history.

That cheapshot Ladd did was pretty bad.

That would seem to fit Adam Burish to a T.

What we need is a Mats Sundin pre-game speech!

Oh my god, I can't help it. I've turned into a major SOB fan boy. The dude is hilarious, and he can actually play some pretty solid D.

Also, it didn't work last year, but I love this one:



Gives me chills.

And Chris Lee is reffing this game.

Brutal. IF there is one ref who I think is on par with Auger, it would be Lee.

Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the Vancouver Canucks and its Franchise last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'

no wait, perhaps we should wait until the Finals for that one.

I thought I was the only one noticing just how bizarrely much press time Burish gets for a scrub. But then again, Ryan Johnson is a guy that the press talk to a lot here. (Johnson > Burish, but still).

Wouldn't surprise me at all if Salo is a target for the Hawks if he plays. But the Canucks need to stay disciplined, stay smart, and let the Hawks be the dumb ones for now.

Knowing DJ Dave, we'll skate out to something like this:



and proceed to lose 17 to negative 4.

CBC's intros have really disappointed me. We get some crappy, jingoy jazz intro with black and white photographs, while the outro to a Bruins game gets a fast paced Iron Maiden "Aces High" vid? CBC, I cordially invite you to apply your lips to my posterior.

Dress Hordichuk and Rypien. Play Johnson on defence. It won't matter, the Canucks will overcome anything tonight.

Just have to ignore Burish and treat him like the AHL scrub he usually is. If they want to target Salo, let them...I'm sure if Salo plays he'll probably only be out there for PP duty anyhow.

I'm sitting at my desk watching these video's ... the Pacino one is best by far ... and I'm so nervous the contents of my gut feel like a rocking ocean. They can't lose all three home games, they just can't.

I'm not making any predictions, I'm not following any superstitions, I just want to sit front and center in my living room and watch the Canucks force one of the biggest game 7s this town has seen in quite some time.

I'm tempted to put this song over a video of the Canucks entrance.

4. The Bruins have surrendered three power-play goals. The Canucks have surrendered 17. And that's a rather large difference.
Quote:
5. Vancouver is averaging 3.82 goals per game, the most of any team in the playoffs. Which is why it'll be so frustrating if the Canucks don't get past Chicago. The Penguins won the Cup last year averaging 3.29 goals per game. Detroit averaged 3.27 the year before. I think New Jersey won in 2003 with 0.48.

The Canucks need a new theme song, that U2 stuff is too dated. We need something a little more scary....we need some crazy bagpipe battle music or something.
