That was a fun game to watch.......Higgins must have switched from fhand to bhand 16 times between center and his shot....It was a great goal.The Winnipeg miss in OT that went behind Lack was just plain puck luck or puck lack.......if that had gone in it would have been a wasted effort.
I give 'em full marks for the fire in their proverbial a$$es.....jeez....they were actually beating guys to the pucks and winning the battles in the corners
Wow....Kassian with the winner and 5 pts in 2 games, Booth suddenly a scoring machine with 2 unassisted goals tonight (3 in last 2) and the Nucks are in the midst of the 3rd longest current winning streak in the NHL behind only the Rangers and Kings. :thumbup:
Kassian has churned out one seventh of Cody's seasonal point output in 2 games!!!
Two unassisted goals for Booth last night.....maybe he just doesn't like playing with others! One man line!
Maybe the Nux can find a GM who has not made a career out of being a player agent. It's kind of tough to be the management guy when you've made a career out of shredding those types. So who will it be next? Trevor Linden, George McPhee (soon to be tossed out of the Ovenchicken kitchen), Pat Quinn, Pierre McGuire, who else is in the running?
Quote from BigfishMike "Grizz...if Pierre McGuire drops his easy TV job, I'd be very surprised."
I think McGuire is bored and has not had a hockey job with any decisions to make that matter for far too long. He also will not get the Don Cherry gig so he has gone as far in TV land as possible. Besides anyone can sit on TV and rip the guys who actually have a say for only so long. Personally I'm kind of sick of him as a TV talking head and would like to see if he actually has the stuff to make a call.... Gm jobs pay way more than TV jobs, he may decide with his wallet.
Gillis is an agent at heart. Trevor Linden would connect more to the entirety of the game, I would think, and hope.
Whoever gets the job, I would expect full change to come more carefully and patiently.
It certainly can't get much worse. Personally, I care about the Canucks far less than my wife, but I have to bear
the brunt of her displeasure when they are not up to snuff.
Hopefully there is a whole new era coming.
