I will leave it without a season... dates. So Poindexter here you go a thread for those who are (or may not be) Canucks fans.




I have to admit I was expecting more that 5 points from this road trip. Now the next 4 games are @ home first up Chicago on HNIC followed by Phoenix, Colorado then San Jose. May they continue their home record.

I have always supported the Nucks and always will .

But ...... I don't have faith in Lou ! Always seems to let that 'easy' goal in with 2 minutes to go in the 3rd . I wish they would start putting a lot more time in with Schneider . I think he has the potential to be really good. 10 million dollar Lou doesn't impress me much :(

Lou is changing his style this year with the new goalie coach, not so far out of the net playing deeper so I give him a learning curve. As the season continues his numbers will improve no worries their, for Cory he is the best back-up Lou's had so far.
We will see if that continues.

For me right now is Vancouver has only played 5 games against teams within their division. It's these games that will make or break 2010/2011 season. True enough they are 4 wins 1 loss only 2 of those wins were really convincing wins, that said they have not played Calgary. That happens on the road Dec 01.

Thanks Hockeyfan1970. Much better.

I've always been a huge Luongo fan but I'm wondering whats up at times as well. It seems to me he's lost some flexibility over the years, especially when you compare him to Schnieder. The other night in Pittsburgh he seemed to be holding back on stretching out the left leg and led to the shorthanded wraparound goal. Wasn't even close to the splits but he definately hit the flexibility wall when he tried to cover the post with his left leg..

And while I'm on a role, why can't he grab a puck in front of himself without swimming? He used to be able to stay in the butterfly and reach out but now he lifts his left knee each time. How many goals has he allowed to be poked under him in the last year?

He's still one of the best but I'm not so sure he ever recovered from the 2008 injury to his left knee and now with the tweaky groin. Hopefully I'm wrong and he feels allot younger than he's looked because we're kinda stuck with him until his geriatric years.

And where's Cody? Why players like Desbien and Bliznack when Hodgson could be getting some nhl experience? He wasn't that out of place in the preseason and it would allow the medical staff to keep a closer eye on him after they messed up and set him back a year.
