Nothing drastic in the offseason, please. Let the depth keep filling in naturally and ride the horses that already won you one Cup and may yet win you more.
Yup. Playing like the reigning Stanley cup champions.

I hate Kubina so much right now.

Didn't see this coming.

Still. 2 more straight games to win is gonna be really tough.

Not enough credit to Crawford. Once he got that monkey off his back Tuesday he's looked awesome.

This team is amazing...when they play balls out and with their backs to the wall they are fun to watch. I am so proud of them for not caving in and giving up! And Smith & Kruger seem to grow with each passing game. Man oh man, is it Sunday yet?

Frolik has better hands though

Frolik reminds me of Versteeg
Smith reminds me of guy like Moreau (On Oilers)

Kruger was underrated in this game. He made simple plays all game and hit the score sheet. Hossa and Keith were fantastic, as well as Smith, Brouwer, and all the defensemen, except Scott for a few plays. I gave up after the Game 3 loss I attended and didn't want Bolland back, because I thought we were done and didn't want him potentially rushed back. Boy, was I wrong in two ways. I feel bad for giving up on them, but they really didn't give me a reason to believe.

Really wish we didn't have to cool our heels for two days off now. Heck, I think the Blackhawks'd be happy to lace up right now and play again.

No one has been harder on Keith than I but I will admit he has looked like the reigning Norris trophy winner these past 2 games. Instead of shooting in to shin pads he's now faking the shot, getting the D to commit and finding a lane. He's a difference maker when he's playing like this!

Smith is better along the boards and driving to the net, Frolik needs space, Smith creates it.

Frolik is a pretty good passer.

But more importantly, I agree. Smith is awesome

On the other hand Seabrook gets a little more time and hopefully is back

Well yeah, obviously. I'm a member of the "you'll never find someone to take that albatross of a contract" camp, though.

Keith has absolutely taken his game to another level the past few games. The best hockey he's played all year, and probably better than most stretches last year, too.

Wow, this is better than I ever thought it would be, another blowout!

I came in late to the feed and right when I tuned in, Hughson said: "This could have been an easy win for the Canucks" while they were showing some replays. Thought we were losing and then the overlay came up showing Chi 5 Van 0... Hughson can suck it!

After the game 4 loss, I heard different excuses from their fans and their media why they lost.
-Nucks gave the Hawks the win to generate playoff revenue from game 5
-Nucks were exhausted after 3 wins
-Nucks were resting it out after 3 wins
-Nucks were partying hard in downtown Chicago before game 4
-Poor officiating

I wonder what excuse they will use this time?

Luon6o. 4 GA, 8 saves.

No wonder Canucks fans sound like Woody Allen right now.
