Title: Canada's REAL team wins again
Post by: bbronswyk2000 on March 07, 2009, 09:42:07 PM
Well that was a good game played by our boys. Bieksa's goal was key on the PP. Than Lou stepped up in the last few minutes making some key saves to preserve the 3-1 win. Thats 12 wins in their last 14 games. Doesnt get much better than that.

How did those crappy Leafs do? Oh ya they lost 4-1 with Gerber stinking it up. I think Toronto is now the goalie graveyard LOL.

Well actually, we've won almost two thirds of our games this year (63%) and we are in a spot for the playoffs. So yes, playing with the determination to win is always a good thing even if you lose.  If you knew anything about sports you'd know you can't win them all. Just ask the New England Patriots. LOL

What I like about the Canucks at the moment is they seem to have great chemistry... ya hear it over & over again in interviews...."We all get along " "Everyone likes each other" ... Plus I really like how the team plays.... just a fast & clean game. [ not to say they shy away from the rough stuff if the game developes that way]  ---- After that losing streak they are presently  just playing with so much confedience & determination. ---- But what are the odds they will win the Stanley Cup? What is it [???] 16 teams that make the playoffs.....  But the odds are the same for every team--- One game at a time & anything is possible... So all we need is a Stanley Cup & then lots of Gold metals next yr.....

A little parting gift from Cliff.

TORONTO (AP) -The Maple Leafs have been fined $500,000 by the NHL and stripped of a fourth-round draft pick because of how they handled the signing of Swedish defenseman Jonas Frogren.

Frogren, who has been on the injured list since early March, had been under contract to a Swedish elite league club before joining Toronto. The transaction apparently went around the NHL's collective bargaining agreement.

"The Toronto Maple Leafs acknowledge and apologize for the error of judgment," general manager Brian Burke said in a statement Wednesday night. "The club accepts the punishment handed down by the league and will not be commenting further."

Cliff Fletcher was in charge when Frogren's services were acquired last summer.

Not really. Canuck fans are more realistic. We dont expect every year to be "THE" year. Unlike Leaf fans. As a very loyal fan I just watch and hope with little expectations. Better to have little expectation than unrealistic ones.

At the beginning of the season there was little hope for the Canucks among most fans. Many thought it would be a tough struggle to squeeze into the playoffs, especially after the dismal end to the previous season. They had lost their star player and another key one, and replaced them with mediocre fill ins. We didn't expect much and have been very pleasantly surprised.  They are currently top in their Division and playing like their ranking implies. It will be an interesting playoffs.

Poor Chicago looked like they didn't know what hit them last night...... Unfortunately for any Hawk fans they are in way over their heads... Nuck's dominated and dictated the entire game save for a five minute period in the third... and that surge only came because of a stupid hortichuck penalty 200 feet for their own net... and Mojo !! if the Hawks are going to continue playing as dirty as they have been then expect to see them killing an awful lot of penalties !!!!!

Hopefully the Canucks can pull off two in a row. They are pretty even teams Chicago only had 4 more points than them. The Canucks were lucky not to lose the first game when they blew a 3-0 lead.

What is 'wrong' with them?  Did they take Chicago to easy? Stupid penalties is part of it  as is their failure to hold onto a lead but they do not look like the same team that beat St. Louis so easily...

Is 'next year' ever going to come with these guys? lol

They seem to have the talent to go all the way but the gears seem 'clogged'.... man oh man I hope they can pull off two in a row..

I'm not sure the Canucks are going to win tonight. They haven't figured out the Hawks yet.
You were right tonight. Is their season over come Monday?

No.
They will win Monday to get everyone's hopes up just like they always do and then they will lose Thursday.

1982 and 1994 seem like long memories now. Funny the only two times the Canucks ever got out of the second round, they made it to the finals both times.

The Canucks hype themselves up in the Fall and come spring it almost always ends in disappointment...and next year never seems to come with these guys.

They sure did not look like the same team that swept St. Louis...They could not hold a lead in this series...so much talent , another descent season to only end yet again in disappointment..39 years in the league and still no cup....will they ever win one????

With regards to Sundin, did the Canucks not learn anything from the Messier debacle??

But on the other hand Chicago was the better team, they had more regular season points than the Canucks, the Canucks got the benefit of home ice which they did not 'deserve' since Chicago had more points and still...

I dunno it is just so frustrating year after disappointing year with these guys, it has almost been 40 years now and still no cup ...Don't forget the Canucks won the division two years ago and were out in 5 in the first round...03-04 they won to yet again another first round loss..

I am not trying to be negative but I have been following them since they first came into the league and many seasons offered hope of great things and have been in the league almost 40 years and still no cup unlike many teams that have been in the NHL for shorter time periods..Like the Islanders for example that came in two years after the Canucks and within 11 years had 4 cups..Then there is the Oilers, Devils, Penguins, Nordiques/Avalanche etc

  It is very difficult to win in this league, especially when you are playing the refs at the same time, going back to game two there were so many missed calls.... for them to miss three interference calls in a row, one which led to a Chicago goal and then turn around and call Kessler for a penalty is disgusting !!!! even if you are not a Canucks fan you have to admit the reffing was very one sided for the entire series.... had it not been for two extremely bad calls * in game two Canucks would have most likely gone on to win that game and we would be watching them in the next round !!!* Luongo was bumped badly on Chicago's first goal to make it 2-1 Canucks .. that goal had to be disallowed but it wasn't !! the same guy that bumps Luongo fakes being tripped by Bieksa , takes out Luongo and draws a penalty which Chicago scores on making it 2-2 !! anybody with decent eyesight knows that both those calls were terrible and completely changed the direction of that game and the entire series !!

 For some reason the officials in the NHL have a Hate On for the Canucks and it was never more obvious than this series against the Hawks... even with the bad officiating the Canucks almost pulled it off !! it is sad that we will probably never see this team together as it is again...

  Heres thanx to the Canucks for a great season and an exciting playoff's

till next year

Blaming the refereeing is a copout IMO. It was not the reason why the Canucks lost the series.

Normally I wouldn't use it as an excuse, but in this case it was the ONLY reason that they lost
they were the better team and if it wernt for the refs they would have won this series...

  Blaming the refs is so stupid in this case. There was calls missed both ways. The refs didn't make them lose the tenacity that it takes to hold a lead. When you had the lead in FIVE of the six games and you don't come out a winner you have to admit you got beaten by a better team. Our D was exposed, Luongo quite simply didn't bring his A game, and our best offensive players only showed up in spurts. Chicago's best players showed when it was needed SIMPLE! Don't be a poor loser and bow out gracefully we got beat fair and square. Good on Chicago the Canucks could learn a few things from them about how to turn it up when it is needed, it sucks but it's true. The Hawks aren't going to have it so easy in the next round though and I hope Detroit $hit kicks those cocky little buggers!

The turning point in this series was game 3 or 4 when they blew a 3-1 lead with less than 3 minutes left in the game. Mitchell was the goat; he had a chance to clear the puck out of his own zone and the Hawks capitalize. Not once but twice.

This series was lost when Mitchell failed to clear the puck in game 4 when they were up 1-0 late in the third. If that puck was cleared the goal wouldn't have been scored and the 'Nucks likely would have been up 3-1 in the series and have a strangle hold on the Hawks. Instead, Chicago came back and tied the game, and then tied the series.

Great season, exciting playoffs, and I'm looking forward to next year.
