Vancouver Canucks vs. The State of Florida

This is my 1,000th post. I can't believe that, after all my random ramblings, you guys keep coming back. Quite simply... thank you.


I was hoping for some sort of fairy tale story for my 1,000th post. You know, the one where Roberto Luongo comes back after a week off, sweeps the road trip and rights the Vancouver Canucks ship that's lost its way in the last month.

After starting 2008 with wins against both New York teams, the Canucks have won just twice more (both against St. Louis). As crappy as we thought their 5-7 record in October was, their 4-7-1 record in January was one point worse.

I'm at a loss for words. For some reason, they just can't put things together. Alex Burrows had a good game, I thought, but few others did. Taylor Pyatt has been the best Canuck over the past few games. Maybe Mattias Ohlund too. Both were okay last night. The Sedins created some good sustained pressure but didn't have many scoring chances. Luc Bourdon looked good in some parts of the game, but took himself out of the play in others. Overall however, it's been a while - I'm thinking since the Rangers game - since the Canucks have played the proverbial 60-minute game.

A lot of Luongo talk before tonight's game:

Another mediocre loss tonight. Too bad Nazzy issed on the penalty shot in OT, that would have been a HUGE boost to his, and the canucks, moral. let's see if the team can boost more juice out of this road trip.

PS Bieksa skated today, don't know if you heard about that, but the team can sure use him back.

Thanks guys!

I heard about Bieksa, though from the sounds of things, I'm honestly not too optimistic about seeing him back in the lineup anytime soon...
