Chiz, please tell me you're joking, and you're not really that slow.

You were speaking of Gretzky in a mock sexual sense (at least I presume it was mock) -- ie, much the same way many speak of Bertuzzi, hence the "comparison".

Get me drunk enough...

Fine game tonight. Cloutier didn't even see that Sakic shot coming. Or maybe he did and thought "Why bother?"

I didn't see the game tonight, but it sounds like the only guy who played well for Vancouver was Cloutier. Ah well, the season series is now 1-1-1. Two very evenly matched teams. Can't wait 'till next time!

Just found this on the Canucks site. I'm inclined to agree with it. And yes, I know none of you care about the Canucks, but this is more about the term "elite" and how it has been applied to every so callled "elite" team in the NHL, than it is about the Canucks.


Written by "IceHole":

"HOLY CRAP!

The only ones really talking about the Canucks being an elite team are the media who ram it down our throats every chance they get because it's great as a sound bite, and trolls that use it as an argument everytime the team plays poorly (NOT LIKE ELITE TEAMS WHO NEVER PLAY A BAD GAME).

God, lets stop comparing ourselves to an overblown abstract. With the way the playoffs unfolded last season and the way the season is unfolding this year I don't think "ELITE" teams exist any more. (NJ maybe excepted)

Dallas is supposed to be an "ELITE " team. Where are they now. The Avs are an "ELITE" team. Where have they been? Who knows what the hell is up with the Wings. If these are the teams we are supposed to compare "ELITENESS" to then why the hell aren't they WAY WAY out in front of us? And why would we want to compare our team to them anyway. Play our own game. When we do, we win.

I am so damn tired of listening to this argument about whether the Canucks are an ELITE team. I say let them succeed their own way. Not by some completely bizarre definition that NOBOBY can agree upon anyway.

The term "Elite Team" is overblown, over used and just damn tired."

Dude, you wrote that.

Nice try though... throwing us off with labelling NJ as elite.

Yeah, it hurts being compared to an "elite" team a mere 2 points behind you.

There isn't much to do in Vancouver, is there? Maybe they should go see Lord of the Rings or something.

Cuj, I didn't write that... very funny though!

AvsGirl - I think what the guy is saying is the Canucks are NOT an elite team, but neither is anyone else except for NJ. He's basically saying the so called elite of the NHL should be way ahead of the Canucks if they are to live up to that title of eliteness, which I can agree with. Out of curiousity, which "elite" team are you referring to that is only 2 points back of Vancouver? Colorado is now 6 points back, and Calgary 8 points back, if I heard correctly at the end of tonight's Flames/Canucks telecast.

PS. Vancouver doesn't get big elite films, such as Lord of the Rings. Like their hockey team, Vancouverites live a modest existence. Locals prefer to sit at home and stew in their past glories. If it's not the '94 Cup run, it's watching 1980s re-runs of such stellar Vancouver based B grade shows as The Beach Combers and Danger Bay.

I was referring to the Colorado Avalanche. As of Friday night's Avs/Canucks telecast, they were reporting a 2 point difference.

Either Vancouver or Colorado needs to learn simple math, that's all I know. I haven't checked them, so I'm going on basis of Friday night.

I just don't get Vancouver's obsession with the word, definition and description of "Elite." That's what my post was referring to. You'd think every hockey fan, both casual and devoted, had gone up there and rammed it down their throats. Perhaps they did and I was not invited.

I think some films is what Vancouver needs, judging from "IceHole", the Canucks discussions have a really strained, hysterical quality! Avs fans are just boorish.

Ah, but you checked the stats before the late updates tonight! Here are the revised, up to date standings, also courtesy of yahoo.

Northwest GP W L T OTL Pts GF GA Home Road L10
Vancouver 40 22 10 6 2 52 116 92 11-4-4-0 11-6-2-2 6-3-1-0
Colorado 37 19 10 7 1 46 107 83 10-7-2-0 9-3-5-1 3-3-4-0
Calgary 37 19 12 3 3 44 84 75 11-7-3-1 8-5-0-2 5-3-2-0
Minnesota 39 14 15 10 0 38 84 82 7-9-4-0 7-6-6-0 4-1-5-0
Edmonton 38 14 17 7 0 35 96 106 8-9-3-0 6-8-4-0 3-4-3-0

So Hockey Night in Canada was correct afterall: The Canucks are indeed 6 points up on the Avs and 8 ahead of the Flames... not that it really matters.
