Re: [Hockey] Official 2013 Vancouver Canucks Thread

Realistically, he's a better goalie than Schneider, but less consistent (particularly in the post-season). So I'm not surprised that he's playing well. I'm also not sad to see him go, if that's the ultimate outcome.

I'm starting to wonder about even trading him now...........we've got no viable backup,unless another goalie is part of the trade.

Sure wouldn't hurt to keep them both to see how it goes for the 1st 2 weeks of the season.

Did you hear Gillis this morning? When asked "on a scale of 1 to 10
with 10 being imminent trade where do you stand?"

Gillis said "Much closer to 1 than 10!" So Luongo could be here a
while.

I was watching the Chicago Wolves play Abbotsford last weekend.
Chicago's keeper was Matt Climie while Lack is out hurt. He looked
pretty good. I don't see him on the Canucks' depth chart yet he had
a Canucks logo on his helmet. Is he Canucks' property???

I believe he is. He signed with the Canucks as a free agent after a couple of years in the Phoenix and Stars organizations. He was undrafted in junior, played in US college, and signed as a UFA out of college. He's 29.

Ya I watched that game too..........Climie was great in that game.

I seem to remember hearing that name in games before...at 29,he's no kid but if he can continue to play like that,Lack and him could be great backups.

The Canucks have locked up another piece to their blueline, signing Alex Edler to a six-year, $30 million contract extension.

»www.theprovince.com/sports/hocke···ory.html

All the current top four locked up until 2016.

Now you have to wonder about Ballard... buyout maybe? Wait until we see how Garrison meshes with the current group? Could Garrison be another Ballard, full of potential that never gets reached?

The fans, who had booed liberally as the score mounted, greeted Luongo like a long-lost son, roaring their approval from the moment he doffed his baseball cap and plopped the mask on the top of his head until he sprinted to the net, reaching a top-end speed rarely glimpsed before.

How soon we forget, just a short while ago it was the other way around. This is a tough city to play hockey.

Not a great Season opener for a couple of teams. The Montreal Canadiens did the torch thing and promptly lost to the Maple Leafs in a lack lustre game. The Los Angeles Kings handed out the Stanley Cup rings, passed the Cup around, shone the spotlight on the new banner in the Staples Center — and then got slapped around by the Chicago Blackhawks.

Trade Schneider and Luongo!

It's only 1 game and the D-MEN sure didn't help either goalie.

For some reason the Ducks own the Canucks here in B.C.

Schneider should start tonight against the OILERS..........this could get interesting.

On the way to the game I said to my lady, "I'm worried about
Schneider. He didn't play well in Europe."

Little did I know.... :-(

My God....the 2nd Ducks goal....my grandmother could have stopped.
Schneids looked very very nervous right from the opening faceoff.

Some things I noticed...

-Canucks sure miss those 5 starters out with injuries.
-Defense did not look good.
-The offence.....see above re injuries.

As for the Canucks' organization....wow...they did a hell of a good
job welcoming the fans back.

Every seat had a $15 Canucks scarf draped over the back.
We all got a free Budweiser.
$1 hotdogs or nachos or pop
24 people picked out of the crowd got the jersey right off the
Canucks player's back. Sweat, autograph and picture of the handshake
The 50/50 draw was $147,000

Everything in the Canucks Store was 50% off. There are about 6
stores in the arena. The big one near our section had 3 jersies left
at the end of the game. They had at least 300-400 when we looked
before the game. As we walked out we passes 2 other stores and
they only had a few left. I got one....it's a no player name Canucks official
NHL products jersey for $70.

Two promo Canucks people would go all over the arena and pick out
a row of seats. Everyone in that row got a jersey!!!

For those who didn't see it Sarah Ann McLachlan sang both national anthems

Other than the shit kicking by the Ducks it was a fun night.

i didn't know they gave the starting job to Luongo...i figured Luongo always did well in the regular season anyway, so i thought i would get a decent amount of points from him, possibly even so if he went to the Leafs.

And I got Luongo too.

Anyone need a goalie in a trade?

Luongo to start against Oilers

quote:
VANCOUVER - Vancouver head coach Alain Vigneault announced that Roberto Luongo will get the start when the Canucks host the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night
Is Vigneault fucking stupid or what?

What kind of a lame brain move is that and what kind of message does that send Schneider?

If Oilers light Luongo up,then what...............unreal?

Time for a new coach.

It's not 1 game............it's a number of idiotic moves he's made over the years that have created this problem.

When your number 1 goalie gets bombed,you stick him right back in net to give him some confidence!

What happens if Luongo gets yanked tonight?

He has no clue how to rotate these guys.

It's not completely unheard of in the NHL to alternate starters when you play back to back games (Detroit's been doing it for years). Secondly they still want to trade Luongo? He kind of needs to play so the other teams can see if he's got the goods or not.

Not really a canucks fan but I do consider Schneider untested. He's been a backup/relief for a few years now. He's had some brilliant moments. It's when you play all the time and the league starts to figure you out, that's when you show you're great. I don't think he's played enough to be there yet. We'll see.

Good point. There might be a couple of GM's there scouting him tonight.
