After Daniel came back we were pretty even with the Kings. If Daniel was back for game one it probably would have been a 7 game series. Now that the Kings have swept the Blues I feel better about the Canucks. Kings are on a tear and are proving to be way better than everyone thought. Next season should be good for us. Rested and ready for revenge!

I am not a bandwagoneer. I am just pessimistic. 40 years without a cup will do that to any normal fan. So please, stop and think before labeling someone a bandwagoneer.

It would have been interesting how we would have done if Schneider played the whole series including Games 1 & 2. (Not hating on Luongo)

ok so what if simong gagne came back for LA? Just saying there's always injury and can't use it as excuses even though sedin > gagne he is still a top 6 forward that would've made their team even better

LA is playing really hard and with a lot of confidence. You gotta give them credit, but the Canucks still underachieved. Having Daniel around for the whole series would've helped, but the team never looked in sync. Too many mental errors and not enough effort.

It was never an issue of being "that bad". President's Trophy, remember. It is/was a question of being the best. That's what you have to be to win it all. Are we really giving ourselves the chance to be the best with all of the pieces we have?
I think we're only a few pieces away:
1) coaching staff (possibly in the works); 2)starting goalie (almost certainly in the works);3)all-star d man (a trade of #2 could bring this back); 4)all-star power forward/sniper/playmaker (a trade of #2 could bring this back, too). Put those pieces in place, and we are the best.
I know it seems like "Oh, all we need is a new coach, trade Luongo and get Kopitarz and Duncan Keith? Why didn't you say so?", but it's not as much of a pipe dream as it looks, and those pieces are all within grasp. We just need MG to have the balls to make the moves/difficult decisions.
Tomorrow could bring a lot of answers.

no duh.

You win the internet, EOM.

I hope it's not as bad as your grammar or logic.

There's nothing wrong with his grammar or logic aside from a missing apostrophe. There's no point in trying to find a silver lining in our series loss. We were bad. End of story.
