10/30 Stars @ Canucks: The Sedins now suck on the ice

Postby Troy McClure » Mon Oct 30, 2017 7:38 pm

The Canucks are awful. Bishop starts. Same D pairs. Hanzal's out.
I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

LOL at our second line: Roussel-Spezza-Ritchie.
Antoine will already be in the zone taking a penalty before the other two skate in for the whistle.

That's the fourth line, not the second line.

It would be 6-0 Van if Kari was in.

So how about that 5 on 5 play?

They need a jolt of offensive pop in their forward unit. Once you get outside the top line, they have next to nothing.

Five on five reviews of the forwards so far this season:

Ritchie blows and is too slow.
Spezza is a shadow of his now deceased awesome self.
Roussel’s offensive game is gone.
Shore is a guy.
Elie is a fast guy with no hands.
Smith is a dude.
Hanzal sucks.
Faksa has no offense in his game.
Janmark is a nice story who isn’t doing much.
Pitlick looks like he should have more points than he does.

Spezza is as snakebit as they come.

Hanzal is great on face offs, but that's it.
There's no threat of offense from the blue line other than Klingberg and an occasional flash from Lindell.

Maybe we should’ve held on to Colton Sceviour. He’d be a top 6 guy on this team.

Oleksiak is trying to get the third period off again.

He only needs about 3 more years of development and then he’ll be ready.

Radulov buried that like it was evidence of collusion.

Another win where you burn the tape and forget it ever happened. Except for Bishop's awesomeness, that is.

Patreyn with another 20+ minute night where he was beaten like a red-headed stepchild up and down the ice. I hear he's the consumate teamate and a great guy off the ice. Maybe that's where they should keep him.

Radulov continues to warm my ice-cold heart a little more every game. Did he play the entire OT?

I fell asleep when the second period ended. The Radulov goal looked great.

Barely. Van is actually good this year. Turnover, turnover, turnover. Bumble, bobble, fumble. We were lucky to even get a point, thanks to Ben Bishop.
