ya... well time will tell. Certainly he didn't make the team better this year, as they replacement players barely played. But that is just a lame-duck way to blame it all on something that is relatively minor.

They played with urgency, but were not playing like a team. Too many breakdowns, no support in too many of the games.

Real Top 4 reasons for the loss this year:

1. D. Sedin out
2. Kesler still injured
3. Waiting until the playoffs to try a new winger for the Sedins
4. Starting Luongo in games 1 and 2. Schneider might have won one of them? Hard to say...

oh, and yes, for a top-tier team, they are missing a 50 goal scorer to put them over the top... just like almost every other team, and a true norris-caliber d-man. lol


If you think that starting Schnieds would have made the least bit of difference the way the team came out in games 1 and 2, then honestly I don't know what to say to you besides a bit fat "yeah right!"
Agreed on all other accounts though

Some of the adjustments that people are making are ridiculous. Seriously, get rid of Kesler, Edler?? The only guy I agree with is Raymond. Unbelievable. Some people need to take time away before making their opinions heard.


This. Both of them are big parts of the club and they will not be traded.

Edler - Didn't play very well this series, but he was an All-Star. You don't trade All-Star defensemen based on one bad series.
Kesler - Had a mediocre season, but injury played a factor. Even the best players don't rip it up every year. Highly doubt he will be traded, especially with a patient guy like Gillis in charge.

And no, Gillis won't be fired either.

Kesler not scoring in 17 games.
Edler spectacularly horrible.
Absolutely no secondary offense.

This team just wasn't going to win the Stanley Cup this season. I'd rather it be over now so the team can finally make some major moves.

Not a surprise, I predicted back in mid November a first round lose.This team did not improve from last year. There is only 1 line here and unfortunately its led by Swedes, great players but can not shift to another gear in playoffs.
Defence is worse that last years. Let's see if MG does anything. The core is basically still Burkes team, Hamhuis is the only significant piece he has added over the last 3 years(Exceppt for the Hodgson mistake)He has a chance this summer to make a major change. this team has 1 maybe 2 good years left before core is too old.

nux had trouble all yr with gritty teams: blues, kings, preds

retool in the works

soft guys like raymond are of no use on this team.


yes we need some size on this team the new blueprint is ST Louis. Kassian is the first building block of this but some posters cant get their head wrapped around it.

Question: Can they send down Tanev and Kassian to play on the farm team? Wolves have currently lost 2 straight games in the playoffs, they could use a LOT of help.

Blow this team up, it's had it's chance and couldn't do it. This core can't score in the playoffs, always had this problem. We won one game in this years playoffs.... one... ONE game. It's time for Gillis to remake this team, this core has been together for too long and has failed and is aging and had it's worst playoffs, Kesler should be gone the guy can't score a goal trade him while his value is high and we can get a Carter like return.

This teams needs a Flyers like overhaul this offseason, too bad I don't think Gillis has the skills or coconuts to do it. Gillis is becoming a failure to lose Ehrhoff and not replace him, to let Torres go who had great chemistry with Lappy and Hansen and made up a badass playoff line, trades Hodgson for a 4th liner with upside... really Gillis? if you trade him bring back that young D man this team needs, this team was soft last year and Torres was the meanest player we had and we let him go to sign who?... that dude who was traded to bring in a 4.2 million dollar cap hit and isn't what the team needed.

MG made a worst move by not going after top 6 d-men. Trading Cody Hodgson didn't help this team one bit. Well there won't be Stanley Cup 2013 because world will end in Dec 21 2012. So long cup. Canucks will never win one.

Putting the blame on Luongo is just idiotic. He played well for us during games 1 and 2 but the rest of the team decided not to show up and hung him out to dry. If only they showed up from the get go.


YEA YEA BRO! IF ONLY THE CANUCKS SCORE 5 GOALS IN GAME 1 AND 4 GOALS IN GAME 2, WE WOULD HAVE WON!!! LIKE.... 5 GOALS SHOULD BE ENOUGH RIGHT??? LUI DID LET IN 4, SO ITS THE TEAMS FAULT FOR NOT SCORING 5 GOALS IN GAME 1! TEAMS FAULT, NOT LUONGO'S FAULT, TEAMS FAULT.

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.

 

1 Pavel Bure

2 Markus Naslund

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares

The Canucks have lost 8 of their last 10 playoff games. In those 10 games, they've been outscored 32-12. So basically we were getting scored on 3.2 times per game and scoring 1.2 times per game; losing by, on average, 2 goals per game.

The defense needs to get more defensive (Edler and Bieksa need to not be plugs anymore);
The offense actually needs to score (other than the Twins in the last 2 games, where was ANYBODY?)
Schneider needs to stay.
AV needs to go, constantly being outmatched, not using or appreciating our young talent, and being too stubborn.

Philosophy of this team changed mid-season to a more defensive type team and they lost their identity. Can't change styles at the trade deadline without a major overhaul.

It would certainly be interesting to see if Kassian and Schroeder have any natural chemistry.

Theres a lot of junk getting thrown around here tonight.

Bottom line is this my friends - The Kings wanted it more and deserved it more. We had no response - zero. Getting outplayed in 14 of 16 periods says it all. End of story.

At this point, Schroeder could use any help he can get. But it'd be nice for Kassian to actually get some time developing in the AHL. Do you know if they can technically send Kassian and Tanev down?

I think they can. I believe the only thing preventing it earlier was that the Canucks needed to be eliminated (might be wrong though).

I fully expect Kassian on Schroeder's wing at the start of the Wolves season.
