A Great Team

I agree. However, I doubt that this will affect all the "fire AV" and "trade player X, Y or Z" threads that will accompany a loss, either tomorrow or in any of the potential next 16 games.

I disagree. This team is different than the previous teams because it has different players. Last year the squad had chemistry and played with confidence. This year they have very little chemistry (with the exception of one line) and some key players have lost their confidence. Calling it a teamwide burnout is an excuse and an unacceptable one.

Now if you wanted to say this is a great organization who gives their fans a reason to cheer hard each year, then I would agree with you. The owners do everything in their power to give us a chance, they deserve a tip of the hat.

You gotta wonder how many guys actually truly want another long post-season. I'd bet most of them are on some level excited at the idea of having nearly 5 months off, especially those that went through nasty injuries/surgeries in the last year. They can take it easy, workout and train at their leisure, be with their families, take some extended vacations... that would sound good to me.

I've wanted AV gone ever since he kept Linden in the press box. MacT will be leading our team next year!!! I still hope we can come back though, boy I would love to shut up the canuck haters

I hope we can make a series of it. The last loss was hard.. the Canucks really deserved the W there, outplaying the Kings for 50 minutes. I don't doubt that the extended post-season last year is still a factor, but the Canucks are capable of a lot more than this 3-0 deficit.

We are lucky to have an elite team even if they go out like chumps this year I'm thankful I'm not a Calgary,Edmonton,Toronto Montreal fan.

i have faith in MG.

They will make the obvious and appropriate personnel changes in the off season.

Nope, until you etch your name immortally On the side of Lord Stanley's giant champagne glass, you are not a great team. You may be a good team or a possible could be, but never was. Just never great.

This team will never be a great team until our name is etched on the Cup. This team is actually quite awful if you look at their performance in this series.... :angry:

Will love and support this team always. I like the people on our team, who they are on and off the ice. As long as we continue to have these great players, I will always be backing them. I don't cheer for them solely because they're my home team. The players define the team and my love for the Canucks.

We have a very good team but not great. You don't get the great status until you've won the cup

I say we keep at it. The Sedins, Kesler & Luongo are still getting into their prime years (and increasing in value), so we should keep building around them. Its simply not productive to start from scratch at this point. I think that maybe if these issues still persists 2-3 years down the line, then maybe.
