Will the real Sabourin please stand up?

Dany to the Sabourin is manning the big hole tonight against the Ducks. So which Dany will we see tonight? Jekyll or Hyde? I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he’ll pick off where Luongo leaves off. More or less.

Prediction: 4-3 Canucks in OT. Pronger, Nieds and Kunitz all score off their throats. Daniel, Pyatt, Morrison and Cooke net Dany his first NHL win. Luongo sits on the bench, plays some Sudoku and tries to scratch out the “Cloutier blows” bench graffiti with his skate.

Canuck Fan said...

No way Sabby is in net. Zeeeeeerooooo chance.

By that I mean:
Dear God No!

It's possible he'll do ok. He really did play great against the Sabres. With a weakened Anaheim team coming in, I'll give him the benefit of a doubt. Depends on if the team in front of him picks their game up entirely knowing Lui isn't back there to save their ass.

hopefully the team plays well in front of him - if that happens - we have a chance ! Sabourin didn't play all that horrible against buffalo!

he deserves his first NHL win doesn't he?

Mike said...

Jenny - you're damn right he deserves a win. Besides, he's still the only backup we have at the moment! If he gets shelled, they better start carry Luongo around like an Egyptian queen rather then risk him falling down a flight of stairs.

I don't get this comment, Sabourin's a good goalie. We just don't know much about him becuase he doesn't ever get a chance to show his stuff regularly. So people assume he sucks.

It's hard to expect a kid to play once a month and not start out a bit shakey in each game.

That, and the team never scored for him until they got to Buffalo.

Mike said...

I'm not, nor was I, assuming he sucks. My point was more to the effect that he was brutal in the first period of the first game he played for them. And that's all many people remembered. I've liked how he's played since that game, especially in Buffalo.

The reality is the pressure on Sabourin won't change even if he plays twice a month. Same goes with Scott Clemmensen in NJ...these guys almost never play, but if they get shelled when they do, then obviously fans are going to think they suck. I think Sabourin just needed a chance, the Canucks are on a roll, and Vigneault rolled the dice on it.
