Chizip, don't forget though, that wasn't a playoff game. Gretzky used to get shadowed to the max in the playoffs. After he got traded to LA, everytime the Kings played the Oilers, Tikkenen would be his double. Gretzky, though, had a little strategy for that. He would then go and shadow another member of the opposition, effectively turning the play into a 4 on 3 for his team. Gretzky once remarked that shadows weren't too bright.

As for his record breaker that game, I remember that play. Robitaille dished it back to Gretzky at the blue line, Gretzky skated in veering left, but passed right againt the grain like he loved to do. McSorely of all people was in the clear, and no one expected him to pass back to Gretzky, which he promptly did, and thus Gretz had an open net to shoot at. That was the story of Gretz' career, though. Manipulating space and getting wide open. He made it look rather easy, didn't he?

it's not as bad as last year with the Leafs... at least you guys still have some number one liners left...

This will just be a test of grit for you guys... see if you're up to snuff with the Canuck's gruff.

Enough penalties eh?

I wouldn't be surprised if old Ozzy gets a call from Monsieur Campbell's office about that blatant head-butt...

Wow, the Canucks seriously dominated them. Finally, the real Cancuks show up. Better late than never.

Chizip - no excuses. The Blues were outplayed tonight. What really pissed me off though, is I missed the game. I saw the first period, and the Canucks were all over them. I set the VCR to tape the game, but I didn't hit the "timer" button! So it didn't work. I'm pissed! They play their best game, and I don't even get to watch it. Figures. How do you like our fans, Chizip? Now that's what playoff fanfare should be!!!

Are you still on the bandwagon, Bear? I thought you already jumped ship!

I wouldn't be surprised if old Drakey boy gets a call from King Cambell for that dirty, cheap, and even more blatent boarding incident at the end of the game.

You got to admire this team. Vancouver could have folded after Cloutes gave the puck away which caused the tying goal. But, no. Bert came right back and made Jackman look silly with that little in between his own legs, no look goal. And then the Canucks poured it on. That looked much more like the team that scored 264 goals this year.

im not giving an excuse, im giving a reasn why we lost. yes you guys outplayed us, but you outplayed a team that was a shell of it's former self. dont you feel at all guilty gloating about beating a team with 3 key injured players, and the other half riddled by the flu. the only 2 games you have beaten us is when we have had to play the whole game with 5 defenseman, and last night was really more like 3. and what's amazing is we actually were within a goal in the last minute. if it wasnt for osgood letting in a few soft goals we could have won this game. that's pretty sad for the canucks considering everything we had to go through.

Blah Blah Blah *Flu* Blah Blah Blah *Injuries* Blah Blah. I hate whiners.

And I see you've suddenly changed your tune about Wasgood. Oh, but he's a Stanley Cup champion, so why does any of that matter? The fact remains he played on perhaps the best team of all time, with maybe the best defense ever, when he was actually on the ice for once and not warming the bench.
