What's Wrong With Me?

74 posts in this topic

Nothing is wrong with you.

Besides overthinking everything perhaps. :)

We've lost 3 very close games in a row to an energitic, young team with a goalie who won't crack.

There's always gonna be thousands of Canucks fans out there who will turn on the team at the drop of a hat. No worries... they gotta do what they gotta do.

Are you playing devil's advocate or something? Youve been heaping praise on this team during these playoffs as far as I can tell.

I too feel let down, Bodee.

However, unlike so many I haven't "turned" on my team. I understand that winning in the NHL is a difficult thing to do and I understand that teams and players occasionally go through slumps. If I could give the reason for it, or a way to fix the problem, I'd likely be rich like Tony Robbins.

I wish the team was doing better, but I believe they're giving it their all. Things just aren't going their way right now.

Hopefully, that changes tonight.

I haven't necessarily "turned" on the team, but i have stated the facts. The facts are that this team is not good enough, hasn't displayed enough heart, hasn't done any of the little things right, has not responded well to adversity and has not given a good accounting of themselves in the first three games. This team will be knocked out in the first round and will only have themselves to blame... Its over..... :angry:

I haven't felt connected with this team at all this year.

This is the first time in my history as a Canucks fan that I was skipping games during the regular season. I guess it has to do with the team hardly (twice) showing up for 60 minutes. When they return to showing an effort night in and night out I suppose I'll be back to being a rabid vocal fan.

Until then I'm just indifferent. If they do not care why should I?

I'm behaving the same way as you man...

It's just so heart breaking, losing to a team in the first round, and getting swepped. It makes me wanna puke and shoot everyone sometimes :)

But deep down I have someone telling me, listen, this thing ain't over till we lose four, and right now we've only lost 3.

Go Canucks Go! Here's to hopeful thinking.

i look at things from a different view.....this team, from top to bottom, wants to win the stanley cup....when we're feeling down about a loss, they are too...they don't want to let their fan base and their team mates down...are they trying to right the ship? is the coach trying different combinations, looking for goal production? has gillis tried to get the talent and the depth on this team to compete for the cup every year? if i was allowed in their dressing room, would i be telling them that they are done and i don't care about them anymore, or would i be encouraging them dig deep and give it their best shot? would i tell them that i'm going to root for philly or boston, because they don't deserve me as a fan or am i going to say, i'm here guys...staying strong, never giving up hope in them...? i know that, i will never lose respect for these guys, they are out there every game trying to win....trying to win for their fans and team mates...try looking at where they are through their eyes.....put yourself in their skates.

I think I know what's wrong with you, but first I need to know how long you have been a Canucks fan? haha. If you are a newer Fan, then, perhaps you have not been disappointed as often as us long time fans. But it is worse this year than it ever has for us Canuck fans. I can't speak for every one, but as for myself last year was a Huge disappointment. I had lost my father to cancer and watching and talking...basically bonding over Canuck hockey is one of those things you'll remember for the rest of your life. I was hoping the Canucks would win it all for my father last year, but that did not happen. And now it comes down to this year...we basically have the same team as last year with a few new people in the line-up..and you got to thinking...hey...maybe this year is the year. Well...we're down 3-0 and the fans are probably more frustrated than the players are, cuz we also know that this series could have gone the other way and the fans expect no less than perfection.

Well..the point is, that it's not about missing that key element to bring us over the top any more. I believe that this core group has been together long enough...and has not given the fans the results they want. The team has reached it's limit, So now things have got to change...in fact...with the huge disappointment of last year, I would go so far and say that this teams needs a rebuild as the excitement just isn't there for this team anymore. The fans just have had enough disappointment. We spent too much money on this team as it is. Being the presidents trophy winner twice in a row and producing a selke winner and art ross winner and coach of the year..just isn't good enough anymore. WE WANT THE CUP!!! nothing else will do.

So now, hopefully you will understand why most fans are not supporting the team right now. Next year, I'm sure they will be back, unless the team stays the same..then....who knows.

I'm still trying to figure out whether I should watch the game with a positive mindset or a negative mindset... What's wrong with me?

I don't know whats wrong with you, but I've become indifferent due to the indifference of our coach and players. They seem to be okay with losing, with Danny being assaulted and Hank being run over. Its as though the Canucks have found their place and are content being one of the NHLs softest teams, relying on the refs to balance the scales.

And now with odds against us and an unsurmountable mountain to climb, will the Canucks fight back? All signs point to no.

A lot of fans have resigned to the fact this series is most likely over. Most of us want to believe it isn't but the Canucks haven't done much to prove otherwise.

I hope tonight is different. Good luck Canucks.
