People at work are hanging onto this unicorn and rainbow fantasy of winning this series. Three times in the HISTORY of the NHL this has been done. How can anyone HONESTLY believe this team has the make up to do it?

Sometimes you just gotta believe.....maybe someone finally steps up, maybe edler has a better game than he's had so far... maybe Daniel comes in, riding on a horse in shining armour to save the series.... I mean whatever happens you just gotta believe it can or what is the point of watching Wednesday night? Besides... look around, last 2 years in a row a team has come back and forced a game 7 from being down 3-0 this is happening more and more often because there is more and more parody in the league.

30 years ago, you fell behind 3-0 in a series because you were the worse team, there for... nearly impossible to win 4 straight games against the better team, these days though you can fall behind 3-0 due to 3 poor/bad bounces in the 3rd period of games, doesn't mean your the worse team... doesn't mean your the better team either albeit. All it means is if we get the next 3 big bounces our way it could conceivably mean we are sitting watching a game 7 a week from now. It's a long shot sure, but so was L.A. beating us 3 in a row.... sometimes you just gotta believe... :towel:

Possible and we could do it but likely not.

It may not be such a bad thing though. Is it disappointing and embarrassing. Sure. But this type of adversity might force MG and co. to go out and pay up the sufficient assets to get a legitimate shut-down defenceman or two and get some players willing to stand up for our teammates(and yes Kassian still has plenty of time to become one of those guys) in the league.

I'm trying to stay positive by looking ahead.

There is still a little bit of faith left in me.

However, I am treating Game 4 as potentially the last of the season.

Its been done before, it can be done again. Need to play their heart and soul out there. But, I am preparing myself for the early exit just in case.

It's not impossible, but there's a reason why it's been barely done before.

Quick just needs to steal one game out of 4 and Kings win.

Obviously the odds are against us, but you always cheer for your team! Through thick and thin!

In other words, I don't want you on our wagon anymore.

Are the Canucks capable of a four game winning streak? Of course they are. LA better not have used up all their horseshoes... Anything can happen, particularly against a team like LA that has gone stone cold offensively many times this season. The Canucks need to raise to another level of rational anger and play like a team with a serious chip on their shoulder.

When we lost game 6 against Chicago I had this dream that Vancouver would win in game 7. Last night when we lost game 3 I had a dream Vancouver will win in 7 :)

This is a crappy thread to build.

You know what happened when Boston achieved this feat last season? It shut the mouths of a thousand naysaying bandwagonners all at once.

Sick and tired of fans that feel entitled.

Cheer your damn team on through thick and thin! Creating threads like these just build negativity.

BOO :(

I believe there still is chance and thats because there is. And why would you stop supporting a team just because it's unlikely for them to succeed?Is that not then point of being a fan?

Can they? Yes!

Will they? Seriously doubt it.

Anyone who wasn't concerned about the .kings first round, just hasn't been paying attention. The best chance the nucks have is if the wheels fall off of Quick. Hot goalies can steal series' - that simple.

No.

Absolutely No.

With their previous 3 games performance, there is no chance that they can win the series.

They might get by tomorrow with out a sweep, but winning 4 straight games against LA, a pretty tough team in the playoffs, and based on their inconsistency during the regular seasons, simply NO.
