Weak Division

26 posts in this topic

Winning all those games at the end of the regular season and winning the presidents trophy was nice and all but We only played one playoff team through that streak. Funny enough that team was LA. Our division was so weak this year that playing all those games vs the NW at the end of the season has seemed to have us playing some boring and very average at best hockey. The pacific division was such a dog fight for the last chunk of the season that LA has been in playoff mode for a few weeks now and it's proving to be a huge advantage. It seems being in a weak division will get you a playoff position but doesn't prep you properly for games with intensity. Here's to hoping our boys wake the F up and realize we arent playing Colorado or Edmonton. Let's see some of that hockey that we all know they are capable of playing. GO CANUCKS

The NW division is capable of playing good, hard, tough hockey. In fact, in previous years they have often been some of our most difficult opponents.

We are arrogant and LA is making us eat humble pie. This is how it tastes. Not good.

We're making dumb mistakes and playing sloppy hockey.

I don't think it has anything to do with who we were playing 2 weeks ago.

I think it has a lot to do with it. When your playing against crap teams with no intensity for 2 weeks straight and your opponent has been playing full on intense playoff style hockey for 2 weeks who do you think has the advantage... If you say the canucks then you have never played any sports besides NHL hockey on you computer or laptop. Getting into the groove of playing hard fought games is like training and we were unfortunately playing garbage teams with no fight in them

Except that we beat all the best teams this season on top of that. We wouldnt be where we were if we only beat our own division and then played .500 hockey against the rest of the league.

B.S. Maybe if we fluked the division title, then sure, say "Weak Division." You can't Fluke a presidents trophy.

Is there any place to look at team points against specific divisions? I would be curious to see actual facts on this rather than...well rather than this thread.
