Yes, exactly. I wonder if this is what they mean by Leaf burn...



I wouldn't want to be caught on the wrong end of these fired up Leafs.

I guess it's a Creed concert.
Yes, even the best rock stars have off nights. Tonight was definitely an off performance all around.

Hey, I already mocked that picture! Too many Canucks threads to keep track of the trash talk.

The Avs are...average. Our big guns are just not scoring. Too many ties--Forsberg and Kariya are both out.

There's an interesting Forsberg rumor floating around that he may be done for his career. The story goes that the stomach muscle injury is much worse than the Avs are letting on--that he really tore something bad, due to his muscles being weaker thanks to his spleen being removed. Supposedly, when he left his last game, he barely made it off the ice before collapsing.

Is it true? Who knows...I heard it from my dad, who heard it from Avs security. Forsberg rumors are always a bit off--the last good one was when he took 2001-2002 off. "Those in the know" claimed that he was a cocaine addict and secretly in rehab in Sweden.

I hope Forsberg comes back soon. The NHL needs its best players. Do you know when Kariya is expected back?

As for the Canucks, that 4 day layoff stole their legs tonight. This was their worst effort of the season. They're getting worse and worse. Totally uninspired, flatfooted.... they basically didn't show up again. Naslund didn't play much, and left the game early with a groin strain. This long homestand wasn't what the doctor ordered.
Sometimes teams get beat. It doesn't require excuse every time griffey. If it did, maybe the team in question isn't so... elite.

Did someone say Patrick Roy in this thread?

I'm well aware that sometimes teams get beat. But, Cujo, have you watched more than 5 Canucks games this year? This is not a team that should be losing to ANY team by 3 goals (whether it's Calgary of Detroit). This is why they haven't lost one game by more than 1 goal all season long - until tonight. If you watched the game tonight, you would see exactly what I mean by flatfooted and uninspired. The Canucks totally, unequivically, deserved to lose this game. In fact, I wish they had lost 6-0.... at least such an embarrassment would have possibly woken them up for next time. Tonight, Cujo, they were atrocious. They got out hussled, out hit; they couldn't even win faceoffs. There was really no intensity or even determination in their game. That's unacceptable for a team that hasn't lost a game by more than one goal all season. Tonight, they looked like the Canucks of old. It was horrible.

Yes, sometimes teams just get beat, as you say. Too bad tonight wasn't one of those times.

Nope...I know he has a cast on his wrist, though. But I guess that's kind of obvious, LOL.

Griff, I have a job sugestion for you.

you should apply as the Vancouver Canucks PR agent. The people of Vancouver would think they had the best team in the history of the sport.

I assume you meant "good", but "god" works quite well too. I'll have to ask God what he has to say.

He's my MVP on my fantasy team, and I don't even get to use him!
