HFVAN Psyche, day2day - a thread for positive #@$!

This is the worst things have been around here since game six vs Chicago last year. Let's all remember that we're still ahead in this series, and there's lots to be optimistic/thankful about.

1. Crawford is due for a bad game - I've thought he's been awesome the past few games and quietly making all the saves Luongo has NOT.

2. Hodgson is showing potential to be a core player in the near future. He's undeniably faster and looks like a solid second liner.

3. IF the team advances, this adversity should make them a lot stronger.

4. We haven't had to watch some of the more annoying ads on Sportsnet (MOORES? On your wedding day...she'll be looking at you) since the games are on CBC.

5. No Mark Lee while on the topic of CBC.

6. No injuries to the defence through five games, although Ballard seems to have been playing hurt.

7. If the team was fighting sickness the past two games maybe they've recovered.

8. The lady behind the penalty box in game three could be back for game six in Chicago.

9. If we go up on Chicago in game six their crowd will suck. Beating them there would be incredibly satisfying and I bet none of us have even thought about that.

10. We don't have Shane O'Brien on the team.

11. We don't have Ritchie, Isbister, Cowan, etc..

12. This past couple days has really cleared up who the crazies are on our board.

13. At least we're not Calgary Flames fans.

I'll be adding more as they come to me..

Let's go Canucks!

I think you guys should really take the opinions of other fanbases into consideration here. Most of the people following this series believe the Canucks are going to take this series. The only ones saying the Hawks will win it are Hawks/Flames/Oilers fans.

Think of it this way... We pushed the Hawks to the brink, but couldn't keep rolling on despite being the superior team, why should the Hawks be able to roll us 4 games straight? Already with 2 no-shows, we're bound to show up in one of the next two games, and I think game 6 will be it.

Agreed, he's awesome. Pretty cool that he puts in a good effort for Oh Canada too - I get the impression that the Canucks are trying to piss off Americans by letting Richard Loney go out there. He's really really low energy and does weird things with the melody too - not a fan.

thats because most of the other fans had no idea on how the canucks choke in important games.

I think the Canucks could take the Ducks or the Preds in the next round. Ducks especially have been porous defensively against a team that's not known for its offensive flair.

Just gotta get there first.

And Anaheim doesn't have a hate on for the Canucks as much as the Hawks do.

Wow Weber has the worst beard I've ever seen on a public figure.

What? That beard is glorious! If Nashville goes far, it could reach epic length!

At least none of us will have to spend 300+ to watch a potential disaster again next game.

No, but in all honesty - good thread.

14) Trevor Linden is predicting a win on Sunday

They give a different perspective. Since Canucks fans in general suffered through a lot of post-season disappointments, we tend to be a little more glass half empty - even when we hit a bump like this.

I think it's more "glass mostly full but we should trade it for peanuts and rebuild cause whatever's in it will never get it done".

A photo of Luongo pointing at Vince Vaughn post-handshake line would be money.

The possibility of a win Sunday means that we could see the Madhouse despair and silent besides a few sobbing cries, one of which is hopefully Vince Vaughn.



Down with Vaughn!

We're bound to get a few calls that go our way that will tip the momentum/balance and the PP will take advantage.

Blows me away that a rookie with back problems is looking better than the last 2 Art Ross winners. Keep it up, Cody.

It bloody well better.

4. We haven't had to watch some of the more annoying ads on Sportsnet (MOORES? On your wedding day...she'll be looking at you) since the games are on CBC.
No, we get Liberal, NDP and Tory campaign ads. And East Side Mario's. It's a wash there.

Quote:
5. No Mark Lee while on the topic of CBC.
Unfortunately, there's still Ron MacLean.

Quote:
6. No injuries to the defence through five games, although Ballard seems to have been playing hurt.
Hoping the flu bug leaves our dressing room ASAP and that it's a big cause of the Canucks sucking so hardcore the last 2 games.

Quote:
7. If the team was fighting sickness the past two games maybe they've recovered.
See above.

8. The lady behind the penalty box in game three could be back for game six in Chicago.
Uh, ok. Personally, I haven't had trouble finding pictures of women on this computer/internet thingamabobber.
Quote:
9. If we go up on Chicago in game six their crowd will suck. Beating them there would be incredibly satisfying and I bet none of us have even thought about that.
Watching Vince Vaughn cry would be great. Never realized how much I hate that guy until I saw his smug sneer overtop of a Hawks shirt.

Quote:
10. We don't have Shane O'Brien on the team.
No, we have Aaron Rome.

Quote:
11. We don't have Ritchie, Isbister, Cowan, etc..
Problem is, they all probably have the same number of total playoffs points as Kesler, Burrows, etc.

12. This past couple days has really cleared up who the crazies are on our board.
Hey! It was momentary insanity. Gimme a break.

True.
