Re: [Hockey] Official 2013 Vancouver Canucks Thread

What a unpassionate team the Wild are..........looks like they're all Heatleys.

And I picked the whole Parise line in my pool,too.

The Sedins still don't look right.........something is wrong there.

Why do I get the feeling this contract will be their last. I can see the
Twins retiring early.

...and he'd still be in the minors if Hodgson was still around. IMO he's been the most consistant forward on the Nucks so far this season. Nice to see a couple go his way.

First Tanev's 1st goal now Schroeder's 1st & 2nd goals in one game.

I bet Schroeder didn't sleep a wink last night!

1-0 Canucks at the end of the 1st.

Nice of Luongo to talk to the rookie Wild goalie in the warm-up.

2-1 Canucks final.

Pretty boring game as usual with the Wild.

What a fiasco this is turning out to be getting Parise and Suter and not getting any offense.

Heatley no points in 9 games..............WTF do I keep picking this fucking loser every year in my pool?

Hmmm...

a) You're a glutton for punishment.
b) You've a poor memory of his past performance.
c) You aren't a Senators / Sharks / Wild fan.
d) all of the above.

I'll go with (d).

I think it's a combination of two things:

His skills are starting to fade a bit and because he's not the fastest skater it's becoming apparent more quickly than if he was more than a one-trick pony (set him up and he shoots),

and

He's a one trick pony. If he's not being set up for a one-timer, he's not really all that much use. He's not a grinder to get the dirty goals close in, he's not going to get a breakaway, and he's not going to force a turnover in the offensive zone.

He's not going to get another contract like his current one. Six year contract and he's on his third team on that contract (Ottawa, San Jose, Minnesota). He's still making $7.5M a year, but he won't be after this contract is up at the end of next season. What's really startling is that he's only just had his 32nd birthday and he's been on the decline for at least the previous two seasons as well. He should be in his prime, but he's on the decline, big style.

Exceedingly few players are in their prime at 32. The average peak age for a high-end NHL player is 27 (Heatley's production peaked the season he turned 26), so having been on the decline for a few years is really expected. But it's been a much sharper decline than is typical.

Fair enough -- bad wording on my part....you said what I was trying to say. I wonder where he'll end up, and at what salary, after next season?

Oh my.....that IS a short but nasty road trip!

We've always played well against the Stars and Wings though and
Hawk games are usually close ugly affairs. We made the Preds look
"easy" a few times in the playoffs....but that was "before".

Malhotra is on the IR for the rest of the season. Career over due to that eye injury?

He was our best faceoff man...........someone will have to step in for him.

I think Schroeder has been taking some........another great reason to keep him up.

Ah yes but Manni is so far ahead it's scary. Some of the f/o stats are
skewed in that a guy could take only 9 faceoffs win 6 and be at
66.6%. Like usual with stats it's over the long haul that counts.

Daniel Sedin = 75% -takes them when his brother is kicked out.
Malhotra = 65.3% -full time faceoff man.
Henrik Sedin = 53.9%
Lapierre = 50% -you surprised? I was.
Ebbett = 45.4%
Burrows = 44.4%
Schroeder = 40.4%

You guys who watch all the Canucks' games must have noticed
Manni has a blind spot to his left. At the speed of the game today
you don't have time to turn your head to see to your left or right.
You NEED good peripheral vision now.

Everything I have ever read or heard says Malhotra is a great guy!
Damn sad if his career is over.
