  1. Does anyone actually want to see this team in the play-offs? Can you imagine four games against the Kings? It's taken a long time, but I'm now officially a card carrying member of Team Tank.
  2. Disgusting comment by Burrows and definitely over the line, hopefully that type of trash talk is long behind him. That said, the reason this comes out now is clearly to gather some attention and sell more books which I also find offensive.
  3. Best wishes to Dan and the Hamhuis family

    Go well soon Hammer....who the hell was that taking the shot Jiri Slegr? If Dan's face hadn't stopped the puck, it would have hit Fin in the Upper Deck.
  4. Fan Accountability

    Passionate fans who care (too deeply in many cases) for their team should never be called the, "worst fans in the league". That should be reserved for the apathetic groups in Florida, Carolina and Arizona who in spite of $5 tickets, that come with a beer and parking, still aren't interested in watching NHL hockey. Canuck fans have watched their team build to multiple President's Trophies, and a Stanley Cup Final appearance, only to see it all slip away with a long re-build in front of us. It's frustrating as hell when you have to start wondering if the Canucks will win a Cup in your life-time. That said, I think we have good people running the team, and my hope is ownership will allow them to do what's necessary to build a contender, not just a team that limps into the play-offs and gets pummelled in the first round.
  5. Jeff Paterson & Matt Baker - Let Go From 1040

    The quality of the TSN radio broadcasts for Canucks coverage has gone in the tank lately. Maybe it's just that we're used to legends like Robson, Larsheid, Hughson, but Abbott and Tomlinson are like a stiff kick in the crotch, and the morning show crew is terrible as well. 
  6. This is like being slowly poisoned. Not sure I can survive a year of this crap.
  7. We are just so freaking terrible at 3 on 3....
  8. I sense an overtime loss coming, if we're lucky.
  9. [PGT] Detroit Red Wings vs Vancouver Canucks 3-2 OT

    I see the Canucks 0-16 in 3v3 this season.
  10. Welcome to the real 2015/16 Canucks.
  11. Hard to Emotionally Invest In This League

    I've watched the Canucks since I was a young kid in the 1970's. During that time there were no expectations, the team was young, usually bad, and the Vancouver hockey fan was just glad to have a team. We had a window seat to watching Montreal win multiple Cups and then Edmonton get gifted one of the greatest teams ever to play the game. Over time, the Vancouver hockey fan started to get impatient watching team's like Tampa Bay, Carolina, Dallas and Anaheim hoist the Cup, while we waited. This play-off, most fans thought we could beat Calgary but the chance of winning a Stanley Cup with this team had long passed and the empty seats for the home games proved the point. I know for me as a fan, the only thing that matters is winning a Cup, anything else is failure. We've seen this team twice lose Game 7's in the Stanley Cup Final, and the image of Messier lifting that Cup, or any picture of Marchant still causes my blood pressure to rise. I will always be a Canucks fan, but since 2011 I've felt almost too full of past disappointment to truly enjoy the team. I hope this passes, but I can't say that this series against Calgary did anything to help me out of this funk.

    Flames Fan: "OMG the Canuck hit Gaudreau, how is that not a penalty!!!"
  13. [GDT] Canucks @ Flames | 4/25/15 | R1G6

    The Flames have scored almost every time they've touched the puck this period...which isn't very often, but it's 3-3. ERRRRRR 4-3!!!!!!!!
  14. There are a million things to hate about this game, but horrible weak-ass calls have taken our momentum at every turn. Right off the bat the tone was being set by whistle happy reffs....but some of those calls I just can't understand. Bonino gets punched, retaliates with a weak punch himself. Penalty Ferland Runs over Miller right in his crease, no call. Cross-check by Vancouver. Penalty Explain that to me..
  15. Yeah there's no way that was a follow through as his stick was no where near the puck. It was unintentional but reckless and should have been called. That's what the rule is there for.
