  1. Agent doing his job, looking after his client and only his client. I have a really hard time believing Schneider feels as strongly about it as his agent does.
  2. FIVE, yes five solid posts last night. Not just sharp angle shots that hit the outside of the post and had no real chance of going in, they were 5 incredibly close shots. Not that it's an excuse for the horrendous couple turnovers that directly lead to Shark goals. But they had a chance to win a game in spite of that fact, which would have been better. Though the Canucks did the impossible. Patrick Marleau was held to a single goal. Crazy to think it was ever going to happen, I know. And it was a fluke at that.
  3. Not just rarely, but RARELY. I don't think it's that rare. That's just the well publicized ones that I remembered off the top of my head. How many players have been traded with NTC's without a hitch? Serious question.
  4. Dany Heatley? Mats Sundin? Lubomir Vishnovsky?
  5. Definitely. And then when everyone is healthy, at which point I don't see Schroeder sticking around necessarily, we could see a line-up like this: Sedin - Sedin - Kassian Booth - Kesler - Burrows Raymond - Higgins - Hansen Lapierre - Malhotra - Weise
  6. Interesting. Weise hasn't really earned 2nd line duties over anyone, but might as well give him a game or 2 to see what he can do in that role. If J-Schro sticks, and Kassian fits with the Sedins, I would like to see something like: Sedin - Sedin - Kassian Burrows - Schroeder - Higgins Hansen -Lapierre - Raymond/Weise Volpatti - Malhotra - Raymond/Weise
  7. 0.000000001% I guess it's technically possible for Luongo to go on like a 30 game shutout streak or something. Seriously though, the only way I see it happening is if several things happen: 1. Luongo doesn't get traded this year, greatly outplays Schneider, and leads the Canucks to a Stanley Cup victory 2. The Canucks, despite Schneider losing his starting job and sitting on the bench most of the season, get a very significant offer that would help the Canucks reload for another cup run 3. Luongo agrees to an amnesty buy-out then re-signing with the Canucks for an even better contract (3-4 years/$3-$4 million) while grooming Eddie Lack. I don't know how much romance there was to begin with.
  8. The only thing a shutout might have changed was who would have started the next game.
  9. Welp. Seasons over. Can't possibly come back from losing the first two games. It'll be an interesting playoffs without the likes of Vancouver, Philadelphia, NY Rangers, Detroit and Los Angeles. Did they? Serious question. Saw the score, but haven't seen any highlights yet.
  10. With missing 2 top 6 forwards to start, it might make sense to spread out the 3 we have remaining. It'll be an interesting test for Kassian and if he doesn't do much to start, trust me he won't be there long. Unless he produces, chances are Burrows will be back there by the 3rd period on Sunday.
