Hey Griff Dog.....you should make a Canuck topic to rant and rave in about the most elite team in NHL history, this way most of us can just skip over the dribble and talk about the season. Frankly I think you work for the Canucks the way you rant and rave some days.

AvsGirl - The difference with Dallas and Detroit is they haven't lost arguably their most important player. Losing Roy is like losing Yzerman or Shanahan (probably both combined). It's probably worse than losing Forsberg or Sakic. Roy was more than just the best goaltender in the NHL; he was also their best leader. His presence was irreplacable. Also, Drury and Deadmarsh were vital, and the bottom two lines are always important. Too many changes disrupt team chemestry. This is why Brian Burke has opted not to make too many changes in Vancouver, even though he's had ample opportunity. Chemistry goes a long way. Like I said, though, I suspect Colorado will remain elite - but right now, it's simply too early to tell. The standings certainly don't reflect it. Right now, I'm giving them time to prove it.

Yeah, I did see that. They looked to be in good spirits actually. Talk about a chipy affair afterwards though.

I've told you before how much I respect Doug Weight as a quality player. But why would he go after a finesse player like one of the Sedins? He intentionally cross checked him to the eye area of his face. Not only that, it was away from the play. I couldn't believe he did that, to be honest. He isn't usually a dirty player in that way. I suspect he'll get 3 or 4 games for that. Shots to the head area are something the NHL is trying to crack down on.

it was a love tap

sedin hit him and weight hit him back but he is short and his face got in the way

i mean there wasnt even a penalty called, so even the refs thought it was a clean play

So there was a great game that didn't involve the Canucks or Blues (Never!) on tonight. The Oilers vs. the Sens. good back and forth action....even thought it ended in a tie it was a good game anyway.

The refs are blind. But this isn't about the refs. This is about a very dirty play that knocked Sedin's teeth out. If it was clean, why is Weight likely going to be suspended?

Ah, are you going to blame all your injuries on the league, too? You've got an excuse for everything, Chiz.

not the injuries, but its known ever since the blues started the trend of high price free agency the league has tried to screw them

see having to forfeit scott stevens and 5 first round picks for signing brendan shanahan
