Please relax. Yes, it was a stinker and we will not see a performance like this again for some time. Any positives tonight.. I liked Weise and think that we are going to take a liking to Volpatti. Not sure about Kassian, dude isn't aggresive by nature.

Yes he has good wheels and pretty good hands for a big guy. Was hoping for a little more bite.. he probably drove Lindy Ruff crazy.

The more I see Kassian, the more I think he'd be perfect with the twins. His passing is really underrated.

Voplatti played great tonight, as did the 3rd line, which is going to have to be the 2nd line til our guys are back.

D coverage, however., was horrible. Wouldn't be surprised to see both Ballard and Tanev n the press box tomorrow. They wren't much worse than our top 4, but that's just how it is.

Kassian, Vandermeer, and Weise are three guys willing to throw down, as proof of Kassian's pounding on Eager tonight. Add a guy like Vandermeer into the mix and you have a couple of bonafide bruisers that will answer the bell. I agree with the point on Bieksa though. You can't count on him to do it.

Once again when I created this thread it had much to do with games like tonight.

The Canucks are so badly outmatched physically. Watching our players flop all over the ice as they did against St Louis and as they're doing tonight is embarassing.

Why do they have Weise and Volpatti on the roster? These guys are amateurs.

Kassian being young is not a good enough excuse. Tarasenko is young. Yakupov is young. They're better players. The way Kassian has played lately he would be a good fit on the Wolves.

The Canucks need ROLE PLAYERS. The team is soft. Kassian's presence has done crap all to deter teams from taking liberties. Same can be said about tough guy Bieksa. Not to mention the defense can't even hold the puck in the zone on the powerplay.

Lapierre has been useless this year.

I still say they need a legit roleplayer, like Torres. i.e. Bollig has taken his toll all night. Lappy has done crap.

I know they're in O.T. but still.

You are a big whiner.

Obviously every one of those players who are actually playing against your TEAM 1040 Canucks Suicide Line hyperbole, will be totally reading this.

Booo frickin hoo.

Dear OP,

I could take your post more seriously if you didn't have a pic of Dan Cloutier in your Roberto Luongo signature.

Saying they had a better team before Kassian, Booth and Dale Weise is whining or fact? I am confused. This soft ass team doesn't seem headed toward playoff success.

And a President's Trophy will amount to playoff success? Lol 6 game win streak my ass. Losing in the 1st round is not acceptable.

The fact is you created this thread after the first game of the season. One game. After a months long lockout so most of our team was rusty. Then you bump it after we lose in a shootout to the hottest team in the league.

Where were you when Kassian was scoring his goals? Where were you during our 6 game winning streak?

You're asking me where I was when these certain events happened, which is like asking me where I was when the Canucks lost in the first round and where I was when Daniel Sedin was knocked senseless with 0 reaction from his teammates. I don't know where I was but the reality is, none of these events have correlation to the Canucks making it past the first round this year. If the team is unwilling to lay it all on the line and win hard physical battles it won't happen.

We were facing the Kings who flipped the metaphorical switch once the playoffs started. It wasn't like we weren't tough enough, and the Kings were exposed the next round. The Kings were clearly dominant and it wasn't only the Canucks who had a problem with them.

As for Daniel getting knocked senseless, are you referring to Marchand using him as a punching bag? Because I agree that there should've been some reaction but this was during the finals when the Canucks were damned if they do, damned if they don't with regards to standing up for themselves. They don't and the fans bitch about it. They do and the refs slam them with retaliation penalties. By that point the team didn't know what would be penalized and what wouldn't. Besides, most of the time that punching bag act won't happen. Decent human beings don't do that just because they can. Marchand's a little punk.

Plus, the Canucks won't be playing teams like the Blues, or the Ducks, or the Hawks in the first round. So while the Canucks do need to get it together, we're perfectly capable of getting past the first round as we are now.

Amazeballs, sincerely, i wish this was pinned.

Just so all the minority "WE NEED AN ENFORCER WE ARE TOO SOFT", fictional hyperbole will cease.

I loathe Canuck fans that watch too much UFC.

I thought Bieksa had a decent game. In my opnion it was Edler who was the shakiest and made the most poor decisions out of the bunch....Edler kind of made up for it with his PP goal though.

I would add Kesler to the list.. He's been back what 3 games and already a diving call tonight, and to be honest i thought he embellished on the boarding call against St.Louis. When will he ever learn. Its embarrassing and only hurts himself and the team. He can forget about any calls going his way that's for sure. He's quickly getting a rap as one the worst offenders in the league. So wish he would cut that out but i don't think he'll ever change.

Garrison: please hit net with shot. Please make a good pass out of our zone.

Ryan Louganis: just stop

Lappiere: another awesome penalty there bud. You were better before the Roids.
