We didn't just win the president's trophy by chance. We are the #1 seed in the playoffs. I will not be surprised if we win four straight and take this series. Our goaltending is incredible, if we get the skaters going we will have wins coming our way. I'm not about to give up on the team that I watched 85 games of this season, and you shouldn't either. Shame on those that say they are Canucks fans and yet say we're done.


Thank god I'm not one of what you would qualify as a "Canuck fan". Stop humoring yourself with blind, unjustified optimism. This kind of garbage hasn't brought this city any sort of satisfaction for more than 40 years. Is there any point where people like you will learn? Canucks are done for the season, and the window has closed.

You can wait for the so-called bandwagoners to return in a decade when the team eventually becomes considered a viable contender again. Until then, and beyond, I -- among many many others -- will gratefully accept the extra 246+ hours of free time a year and invest it in more worthwhile activities.

Meanwhile, you can stroke your withered manhood with your blind optimism.

Cheers.

We win game 4, and by some luck of hope, and strike of God, we can get Daniel back in game 5. We can push it to game 6. Win that, and in a game 7 anything can happen.

No team has comeback from more 3-1 down in a series, than the Canucks. AND in each instance they have done that, they have won game 1 of the next series.

The last 3/4 teams to be down 3-0 have all pushed it to at least a game 7.

Believe. Make History or We're History.

Even if we didn't win the Presidents trophy, we are still a top elite team in the NHL.


When Will we show that!

This can be the Best Team in the League, they haven't shown it and they better get there Act together in a Hurry or this will be the Most embarrassing Collapse in Canucks history.

And one if not the Biggest one I have ever seen in NHL history.

There's nothing wrong with being a realist. They played with urgency tonight, they owned the Kings 5 on 5 and the PP looked better, but it still was not good enough. The offense is simply not there. Unless they some how pull the scoring touch out of their arse, there is no way they can maintain this pace for the next four games winning all by a 1-0 or 2-1 score.

If a team can be swept 4-0 in a series than why can't we win the next 4 games? If we out play these guys and get a little lucky at the same time we can win. I think we played better than LA in this game, but didn't get any lucky breaks.

Here's the attitude the teams must adopt: survival mode. Screw the series, just win Game 4 and worry about the rest later. If they win, great, now repeat. Winning the series sounds impossible at this point, but winning Game 4 doesn't. So just forget about 5,6,and 7 for now.

I don't think it's disgusting. What disgusted me was the ones that were saying it when it was 2-0, but 3-0 is a different Animal, and only 2 team has came back from 3-0. The odds of it happening it, is like 1 in 50 maybe.... I doubt it will ever happen.


3 teams including the 2012 Canucks! Just trying to be positive guys ::D

Why are you disgusted by people who deal with reality and don't live in a fantasy world? Sure, we could win the series still. But do you actually realize how many things would have to go right for this to happen? It hasn't even gone right for us in one game yet and you think it stands a decent chance of going right for 4 straight. Give your head a shake, you putz.


Thanks for the chirp. Just a fellow Canucks fan with a varying opinion but yeah, keep on keeping on I guess.

Maybe I shouldn't have said that those types of fans "disgust" me but, it just bugs me that you can just quit and say that we're done when down 3-0 when it's a best of 7. Sorry I have a varying opinion from you I suppose.

It's not delusion. It's hope in a team that was ranked first leading into the playoffs. Big difference.

The chance of them coming back is slim but still a chance. If they had won tonight and lost on Wednesday, would be 3-1 and folks would still think they had a chance, so either way it would have been 3-1 with a victory next game. Regardless how the series comes out, Im satisfied with the effort tonight, even the last game. Two decent efforts and a bad giveaway in a game one, and now it has come to this. Also, for all those who think Sedin is soft, let them take a Dustin Brown hit like that - I doubt those complainers would still be standing right now from that hit like that. Kudos to Hank!

Quick is simply playing unreal right now - what can you do. We have seen this before how goalies can steal a series. Also, I just dont think they have gotten any bounces like they had last year with the stanchions, three straight powerplays (too many men, puck over glass etc). Im sure they'll do their best in Game 4, and if they do lose, so be it - at least they dont have to go through the pain of 15 playoff wins again this year - leave that for another 'poor' team to go through this Spring as there can only be one winner. They have played an awful lot of hockey the past year-half and maybe time to re-charge, reflect and rebuld for next year if Wed is their last game.

Actually we won it by accumulating points from a weak division.

I think you're right though, the general consensus on the board is we're just waiting until we're down 3-0 to flip that magic switch everyone has been stating we would hit come playoff time.

I understand how Nigerian princes find people to undertake in their 'business affairs' after spending this season on the CDC.

Nothing wrong with saying that they're done. It's going to be extremely hard to come back.

Kes can't get it going, same with Henrik, the PP is garbage and there's no Daniel.


Exactly. Nothing wrong, if they pull it out I will be in an absolute awe, and I will be watching the TV and hoping but I understand, it's not likely at all, win or lose, there is always next season.

The only reason they won the President's trophy is that they won 11 out of 12 against Edmonton and Colorado.

I most certainly hope we disgust you. I would love nothing more than to reach beyond that. I want to disgust the entire Canucks franchise. They need to see just how embarrassing this debacle they have put on really is.

The entire organization should be ashamed. Personally, I am sickened with this business as usual approach.

Feeding the blind, downright stupid masses this whole "Believe in Blue", "Heart of a Canuck" garbage is doing nothing to bring the cup here.

Going to the games is borderline embarrassing. The into is like a night at the opera; quite literally.

Sorry, Gillis, the fat lady has sung. The window to win the cup has shattered, and so has this city's confidence in your management crew.

Considering the fact that our star goal scorer gets taken out indefinitely with a cheap shot, and the lucky bounces that do decide a lot of games, I would say we don't have a chance to come back here.

It totally make sense to play hard for 82 games to win the president trophy and then lose the measly home ice advantage with just one loss.

Tonight's performance was... kindof encouraging... but not really. If they lost 3 games in OT, played well, then maybe I'd be singing the same tune. The Canucks have generally speaking played mistake filled, poorly executed hockey 3 games in a row. If they make it to game 5, I'll be there at Rogers Arena to cheer em on, BUT, you have to realize in the big picture of things, there's a reason only 3 teams have ever come back from 3-0...
