Gamethread: Canucks vs Sharks

New, comments

The long drought of goalless hockey continues in Vancouver versus the Sharks.

goal
noun
  1. 1.
    (in football, soccer, rugby, hockey, and some other games) a pair of posts linked by a crossbar and often with a net attached behind it, forming a space into or over which the ball/puck has to be sent in order to score.
I figured some of you might need a refresher in what the object of the game was....it's to score goals.
The Canucks continue their road to the draft with a visit from their old friends in San Jose. The Sharks are 3 points ahead of the 9th place team. I hate to speculate, but with Joe Thornton out with a knee injury, we may never see him again in a Sharks jersey. There is talk of him not being signed next year in SJ. Now that the Sharks have Evander Kane, they might let the bearded one go. Or they might let them both go at the end of the year if they don't make the playoffs. It has to be confusing and frustrating for San Jose at this point. At least we know that the Canucks suck and need to improve in all areas, but the Sharks are stuck in the that inbetween point where they could still be really good next year or try to retool. (We know how that goes)


The Canucks have this campaign right now:


I was tempted to photoshop the saving of goals, but copyright would have brought lawyers. And it was low hanging fruit.....so I will wait for Jimmi to do it.

Enjoy the game with a nice cold glass of water that the Canucks have saved for you.
