....last night. Calgary didn't put up much of a fight after the first perod or maybe the Canucks came out better in the second. The line of Cooke, Linden & Arvedsson looks like it could be a great checking line with some hands and potential for at least 70 goals this year, taking a little heat off the big line. Bertuzzi got them off on the right foot, like he has to. Chubarov had 2 assists and won some key faceoffs. The Sedins played bigger than I think I've seen them ever play and with King, they controlled the puck pretty well. After the first game jitters wore off, the team defense was solid and Cloutier was there when he had to be, and he made some great saves. But does anyone know where Keane was? Healthy scratch maybe? Good start for the Canucks and they have to keep it going against Edmonton tomorrow on HNIC.

Sorry, I had to get that all off my chest. I'm excited hockey's back but I'm in four pools this year (the most I've ever entered in one season) and it's hard to cheer for your favorite teams when you're secretly cheering for your picks to score you alot of points, regardless of which teams they play for.

I wasn't to overly impressed with there preformance. They won thats the main thing, but wait until the big guns are here then we'll see what the canucks are made out of. It will be a good test playing Edmonton.

The King goal was as sweet as they come. --- Kev

I was very satisfied with the play of one Dan "Five-hole" Cloutier. He played a solid game. My hockey withdrawal symptoms are gone but the ice pak that I have to pay off soon will eat into my pooning budget *big sigh*

A great job from our boys in blue. The teams defence was looking good, although i wasn't happy seeing Jovo getting tossed. A great tic tac toe play from Cooke, Keane, to Slegr for Vancouvers 3rd goal. --- Kev

Nice to see the Canucks are off to a strong start. I also like the start the league's highest paid team is off to as well (NY Rangers outscored 10-3 in their first two games).
