One point of view panic, this OP's post, excuses?

Are we coasting or just playing sloppy? Maybe the Sedin's are playing through injury...

Couldn't those be considered one and the same?

Apollo is not a real person but a post-bot built by the Aquilini's to create hype.

You mean the ntcs that all got waived or the ntcs that led us to back to back president trophies and a Stanley Cup?

Solid points by the OP. Funny how a few losses let all the short-sighted negatrons crawl out of the woodwork. Bottom line is this team, talent-wise, is better than last year and they obviously know what it takes to make a strong playoff push.

Yes, it's more entertaining to watch them roll everyone but I'll settle for a healthy team going into the playoffs.

I love how many people missed the point and posted anyway in this thread... Thanks for injecting some reason into this chaos op, I'm sure more than a few people were listening!

I agree with a the OP here, and would like to add to it a bit.

The games they have been losing lately are mostly to teams who are in the playoff race, fighting for the 8th position. We're pretty much guaranteed second place, and it'd be really hard for us to pick up first. Do you think right now, the Canucks are maybe dropping some games to keep that race tight, so the 7th - 8th place teams fight hard right up to the end of the season, and wear themselves out a bit before the playoffs? Might be giving our boys a bit too much credit there, but it's a possibility.

No, they are not any teams fighting harder because the Canucks are losing games.

I understand the team is doing this and they should, but why not start giving some players some maintenance days and let our depth players play so that they're also ready for the playoffs.

How would you like to be a SJ Sharks fan right now?

At this point of the season, if I were a Shark's fan, I would be hoping they would lose. Come draft time, you get higher picks. May as well get something out of being a bottom feeder fan.

I also follow Buffalo, and frankly I am not too happy they are making a push for the playoffs. They have finished in the middle of the pack for the last few years and ended up getting mostly mediocre players.
