Underappreciated? No. Try Disappointment, Embarrassment and Failure when it comes to this organization's playoff history.
Everything was there for the Canucks to win it all last season. Best Record in the League. Home Ice. And what do they do? crap the bed, which is what this organization is known for doing in the playoffs. 41 years and counting of EPIC FAILURE.
I've been there for every one of those years Pal and I'm not giving up. This current regime and era is the best it has ever been. We need to tinker not blow the whole f***ing thing up. When I'm not certain the management are not accountable or willing to do whatever it takes to win I'll express it by cancelling my season tickets.
I listened to the entire conference today and heard a man who feels complicit for not recognizing some team issues. Today he was not prepared to answer the hard questions because everything deserves a proper review.
Last year was disappointing, we all thought we had it, the best chance in our history but we lost the war of playoff attrition. It sucks, but I didn't turn my back on them then and I won't do it now. Frankly the only time I ever considered packing it in with the 'Nucks was when JJ Daigneault was drafted and made his way to the floor on crutches. That was a big WTF?
