Yet another thread to help kill the lockout time...

After this offseason I'm not fully convinced the Canucks are true Cup contenders or the team to the beat this season whenever the NHL And PA agree on millions... What do you think is the teams current Achilles heel?

For me it's secondary scoring. Good ol don cherry canadian playoff vet(s) a close 2nd...

How are you unconvinced that we are the team to beat? You do know that we've lost to the last 3 Stanley Cup Champions, right?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

It's Mason Raymond, you're only as strong as your weakest link and Raymond is a pretty weak link.

Scoring & being physical. 2011 we were physical no matter what they say, we just weren't dirty after the whistle in the scrums.

Edler, Bieksa, Hammer, Lappy, Kassian, Burr, Kes, Booth, Ballard all need to be hitting guys all the time & when that happens they will get room which leads to a scoring chance. Stay clean & check hard if they do that then the Canucks will see the finals again.

Team style,we were building for a speed no clutch and grab style, but now that style is too small and the wrong type for playoff battles.Hence we have to get bigger and meaner.

We gotta stop being a 'nice team' and be a 'hard team' . This does not mean be dirty...but we have to not let things slide. Someone gets hit, hit em back. If someone takes a cheap shot on a top guy....fight his a$$.

If we keep being a team that tries to force other teams to take penalties on us and not enforce respect...we'll get run over.

Rules change come playoff time. Things happen harder, faster, etc...and the only thing that could stop some guys from doing so is respect and knowing that if they take a run at a guy...they'll be up next.

Timing!

We need to peak at the right moment to capitalize on our talent.

And I guess we need to try and avoid those open-ice, cheap-shot elbows from outta nowhere!

Legitimate, consistent top six scoring (Burrows, Kesler, twins); the lockout, the fans.

Fans and media bring a massive black cloud to the organization. The team constantly says it doesnt affect them but it of course does, the pressure on this team is indredulous year in and year out and it takes its toll on them. Once they make it over the hump they will alieve themselves of most of the pressure and then the dynasty starts, I cant wait for the dynasty :)
