Does this mean Franzen starts on the 3rd line next game? 

 

I think of this as a 6-3 win more than 8-3. The Canucks stopped playing after the 6th and the last two were just icing really but not really earned. 

 

Good solid win.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

We were lucky Loungo was off his game. Not gonna win many games playing like that. Pathetic. Hopefully we won't continue to be as lucky as the last 2 games and ruin our chances for a top 5 pick

 

I think I'd rather have the #17 or #18 pick and take Ryan Pulock. That may be just me though...

That is it: Buy out Sammy and Bert...Tatar and Andersson have earned the right to be in Detroit...sign Brunner right now.

Package deal for two hot dogs.

Tootoo is Tootoo... 3 years will not be enough... small guy with big heart and event bigger balls.

Brunner is Brett Hull 2.0 Kenny needs to sign him for the next 5 seasons

I would rather have the #17 or #18 pick all the time unless we have a first rounder coming from a trade. I was just being sarcastic with that comment, making fun of some of the doom and gloomers

Brett Hull? Really? Don't get too excited. I don't see Brunner scoring 741 goals....when Hull was Brunner's age he score 86 goals and followed that with 70 the following year...Brunner is good, he will probably be the best scorer we've had since Hossa left, but Brett Hull? That's asking a lot!

Keep Bert imo. Buyout Sammy and Quincey, walk Cleary and Miller.

Pretty much things have changed in past 30 years. Lets not start comparing Nhl 25 years ago and now. Brunner will never score 700 goals but who will Stamkos, Ovechkin??? So far Brunner has been in top 10 goalscorer in todays NHL reality and that's huge

Is it just me, or is this season more interesting and exciting to watch then the years when we'd steamroll the West? With the way the League is set up and 8 teams making the playoffs, our season was usually done by December. This year regular season games mean more.

 

I'm not being ungrateful, I've appreciated everything I've watched the last 21 years with this team, but I find myself watching more regular season games this year.

I'm watching more but it's due to the extended lockout, not the talent level of this roster.

Lol at the USA chants at the end of the game.

 

This team man... I have no idea. Play very well against the good teams, crap the bed against the bottom feeders. It's going to be quite the roller coaster ride down the stretch.

WATCH THE CANUCKS FIRST AND THIRD GOALS. Burrows subtly picks defenders both times and its borderline interference....

Goalies had much smaller equipment then and it was heavier, less flexible and not scientifically engineered to absorb rebounds

Very convincing win. As for Brunner, the Hull comparison is way off. Brett Hull is a generational talent. I'd compare Brunner to like a Alex Semin 2.0. Great game from start to finish. Literally in a weekend we went from 11th place to 5th.

WTF is all this 2.0 bull? Can't a player be a player? Brunner is Brunner...period. He has 10 goals in 19 games, which would equate to apprx. 42 goals over an entire season. He is/was a great find and we have Stacy Roest to thank for him, not Andersson, not Holland.  He should be re-signed, he should get about $2M and he should be our best scorer since Hossa. He has proven he can play in the NHL and deserves to stay. No way Holland lets this guy walk, he didn't cost him an asset or a draft pick. He is found money basically.  But in no way is he anyone 2.0...he is Damien Brunner and he has arrived in the NHL...Thank you Stacy.
