I agree that Torres on the 4th line would be an interesting experiment with a healthy lineup.

D.Sedin-H.Sedin-Burrows
Raymond-Kesler-Tambellini
Samuelsson-Malhotra-Hansen
Torres-Bolduc-Glass
Thats what i would like to see also but it does seem a bit weird having our only two natural right wingers on the same line.

only reasonable explanation as to Raymond not getting in vs Dallas, and there being ??? about him getting in vs Colorado is that he's just not as important to the team as some make him out to be.
Sedin, Sedin, Kesler, Burrows?

5th.

BTW, if Detroit loses to the Flyers and the Nucks beat the Avs tommorow we move to 1st place in the NHL thanks to the Penguins losing to Caps in the Winter Classic.

I would rather see them try and build an AMAZING 3rd line with

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Hansen - Kesler - Tambellini
Raymond - Malhotra - Samuelsson
Torres - Bolduc - Glass.

I would agree but Torres is on one of his streaks right now... i'd rather leave him in place for the time being.

3rd line is fine as is.

Nucks really do need something from the 4th line center when the playoffs roll around.

4th line center should be a good PKer for most teams. Disappointed in what Bolduc has brought to the team so far. I cut him a bit of slack given that he was hurt to start the season, but after the all-star break, that slack is gone.

Starting to see more and more Canucks fans over the years showing up at the Pepsi center to support the best team in the league. Go CANUCKS GO.

Colorado scores a ton, but their team defense and Pk are abysmal. Sedins are in for a big game.

Yet many Hawks fans are still convinced they're the best team in the West.


I conveniently work during both the Seahawks and Canucks game tomorrow. Why is it that the first primetime Seahawks game in FOREVER happens to be during my first night shift in FOREVER?

Canucks have outplayed the Avs bigtime over the past two seasons. I'm not expecting anything different with the team playing godly recently. Hopefully the sisters rack up more points.

Pretty sure this one is gonna be a fairly easy win.

Did anyone else see that interview with Kesler where they said they weren't happy with their current win streak? The team decided that they need to be better still.

Av's are slumping, Canucks are on fire and we've had their number all year so far. Expecting a big game from both Lou + the Sediners

anyone else starting to get just a touch worried we're peaking too early? Hard to believe we can play better than we have been. Hope Dallas wasn't a sign of a coming downturn in our play.

I'm hoping we're this good. If we've peaked too early then Detroit, Philly and Pittsburgh have all peaked too early as well. I don't get the feeling with this team that they ever feel a sense of satisfaction, no matter how well they are playing... which is a good sign. However, there are bound to be more lower points...it's inevitable in an 82 game schedule.

How are we peaking early if we can play better than we have?

not at all, they have a lot left in the tank. They've brought there "A" game only a few times this year and minutes have been spread evenly.

Well, Colorado can score but that's pretty much it. Their GA has fallen down to near the worst in the entire league (I think only Edmonton has allowed more goals), and the defense has looked pretty pedestrian lately; doesn't help that Anderson has been struggling.

Short of a misfire or really down game I think we can take this one.
