Just a thought that I had.

It seems as if the Canucks-Kings series is the most boring series to watch at the moment. You look at all the other series and those games are high intensity moving at a fast pace. This series on the other is just staying in one zone and not enough back and forth. Regardless the outcome of each of the past 2 games. If you look at every other series most have gone to OT and most have had fights.

This series just seems boring to watch, what does everyone else think boring, exciting, somewhere in between?

More frustrating than boring. If you want a boring series re watch the Van - NSH from series last year.

It seems boring to me aswell even though Game 1 came down to 3 minutes left with the LA kings scoring for the 3-2 lead.

It's definitely boring as all get out. If you watch the Pittsburgh/Philadelphia series, you really get a sense of what playoff hockey should look like. Super exciting stuff to watch.

Yeah something is wrong with this series....i remember last year...even at the start or the Nashville series.

The whole city was abuzz and everywhere just seemed to be Canucked out....it was a magical run, the best I can remember.

This year, it seems like most people are almost embarrassed, or not interested.

Dissapointing.....

A Toast to Aquillini for getting Torterella.

That's entertainment.

This series seems as if it is missing a physical edge to it. There have been 0 fights in this series which really shocks me because I had thought that there would have been atleast 2 by now.

Just watched the end of the Hawks-Coyotes game.. man that was exciting when Seabs scored the tying goal then Bickell won it in OT. Qstache was so excited he even hugged his assistants and slapped one of them on the ass! Canucks just play a boring style period. Unless they play Boston or Chicago their games let me catch up on sleep.

Nashville detroit have been the most boring thus far. Canucks kings series is only boring to you guys cuz canucks are sucking and losing. If canucks leading the series 2-0 instead of the kings, I guarantee u that u wouldn't be saying that then.

It has been a pathetic series thus far. No sense of heart, drive or will to win on the Canucks. I've wasted a couple of valuable nights studying for this crap. This is a major reason why I haven't had any real excitement for this year's playoffs. The team has to show me that they care at the very least.

Last year's run was something special. This time around, I don't see it.

I said regardless of the score. The Nashville-Detroit series is more physical and has more back and forth moments then the Canucks-Kings series. My eyes start closing at times because nothing exciting is going on, there are no big hits occurring after the first period.

Probably because they know it's not going to live-up to the cup run from last year, because let's be honest teams rarely go to the finals 2 years in a row so most people probably don't expect us to get back there. last were pitt and detroit in 2008 and 2009. can't remember the last time before that

Very boring. Probably one of the worst if not the worst series so far. (Det/Nash also boring and never saw Florida game) Usually boring series with the Nucks are still very enjoyable since it's our team playing... not as much this time around. I've honestly been loving the other series though, the intensity is what it's all about.

If the Canucks were down 2-0, but we're playing a exciting game of back and forth, huge hits, and fight; even then you could say " I can't believe we are down 2-0, but atleast it's not boring to watch."

It seems like a game of pong could be more exciting to watch.

The most exciting series is the Flyers/Pens series hands down, that is one series that has lived up I the hype. Our series was supposed to exciting also with two fast teams and a couple heavy hitters on each team going at it, but it hasn't happened yet.

This is not really a negative thread (somewhat negative, maybe), nor is this a thread about how the Canucks have been losing.

I'm just saying that it is not an exciting series compared to others. We have both teams to blame for that.

There have been many other series that have also been intense Stars, Flames (back when), Kings (2 years ago), Bruins, Sharks, and a couple more in the past 7 or so years.

has been the most boring series (or 1st two games of a series) in recent memory. even the blues series a while back which we swept was way more exciting. but we all knew this was coming with the style of hockey the kings/sutter like to play.

The games don't even feel like playoff hockey.

They're not games where you would wait till commercial breaks or intermissions to run to the washroom.

They're not games that have you going "BAM! HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT" when a good hit lands.

They're not even games that make you hug random strangers.

Something just feels missing from last year to this year, and it could be that the fans aren't the only ones that feel this way. Sure we finished with the President's Trophy, but who on the team did you feel really played with determination, drive, and the desire to get into the playoffs and destroy? The Canucks seem to have lost their competitive edge coming into the playoffs this year. The atmosphere just feels a little stale.
