OK, Everyone Relax! And stick to the facts!

To state the obvious!

#1. Our best defensive centre is a month away from playing
#2. Our 1st PP RW is a month away
#3. Our intense/fast/skate hard every shift player is a month away
#4. Yes Kesler is away for a month! Hard to replace that!

#5. Booth is away for a month.........

#6. To my count, although I didn't work at it hard, we had what 4 players skate through the lock out and really they were all bottom end players

#7. Give them some time, it is not the first 20 games that count anyways! Check the math.

20 games = 40 pts........................if you win 40% you have 16 ploints

if you win 60 % you have 24 points

A difference of 4 wins, pretty easy to catch up, even if you have a tough start! And I don't care if we win the Presidents Cup or what ever, it would suit me fine if Kesler came back with 15 games to go, if we were sitting in 8, 9 , 10 spot in the conference, be would get a better draft position and we would probably end up around 6th in the Conference, which would be fine. It worked for LA, and quite frankly, I think you are better prepared for the playoffs, if you have to fight a little harder near the end of the regular season, if you can stay healthy, which is the obvious reason why the Canucks may not look as strong at the moment. It does unline a weakness at Centre that the Canucks have to address, but most of what happened against Anahiem was system, our first line is as good as anyones, our top four defensemen are near the top of the league, compared with other teams, and our Goaltending is also near the top........It was the system, and the fact that Ducks was resting as the Canucks were out in the community.......give them a few games! Relax!

haha i agree, but I remember all these threads after we lost to LA in gm 1.

"Relaaxxx, it's only one game...."

Then we lost the next two. LOL.

Ofcourse, this is a different situation, and I have faith that the boys will bounce back.

I hate these relax everyone! threads.

Relaxing leads to mediocrity, soon we could relax our way right onto the golf course.

Not sure if anyone noticed but THIS IS OUR WINDOW...go all out guns blazing, I'd rather give us one last shot and wreck the team

and start a rebuild, building through the draft, not huge contracts to geezers who couldnt get it done.

Secondly, please dont spout the "Detroit model" garbage. We are not detroit and our drafting is laughable..

If we dont get it done this year start gutting the team, and building through the draft, Fire AV and Gillis also.

Most of the solution the OP mentioned is several weeks away. It's too late by then. It's a shortened season.

I agree it's only one game so CDC doesn't need to lose it

but one game is really like two games with half a season. So, really, we've already lost two games, and if we lose to EDM tonight we technically will have started the season 0-4

We need a much better effort tonight from the boys

SECOND LINE CENTER ..... never mind the goalie problem - Ebbett is too small ! (Did you see him try to check Ryan Getzlaf) Why is Mike Gillis sucking his thumb about the goalies when SCOTT GOMEZ
is available ??? Would he be an upgrade as a 2nd line center ? - for this year .... then go to 4th
line when Manny Malholtra is forced to retire ?
While Mike fumbles - GOMEZ will probably sign with either San Jose or Anaheim .... nice move, Mike !

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

Gomez?? The guy only scored one goal last year and it took him like 60-70 games to get that one goal. Am confident Ebbett could at least match or exceed that output in a 48 game season.

It's not just one game in that they come out flat disorganized and disinterested and slow season starts. Happens every year AV has been here and also blow outs are more recurrent. See Chicago, Boston, LA, etc

It's only one game, sure, but it's a game that revealed problems with the team that need to be addressed. The team deserves our criticism after that game.

Here's some more math: in a lockout shortened season, every game counts almost twice as much.

Items one through 6 are twice as serious than they otherwise would be, and are good reasons why the Canucks may well miss the playoffs this year.

I know! Everyone just needs to relax. I hate it when everyone freaks out. I'm happy the moderators are on the prowl for Schneider hate threads. One game with our new starter and the flip floppers are out in full force, resting my face in my palm right now

it really counts as 4 games. Half the season so every game is like 4 pts but your only playing inter conference games so thats 2pts (really 4) that the ducks have on us.

Sometimes i really question the sanity of this organisation, just watching the way Hodgson played today and Kassian yesterday. Let's compare shall we:
Hodgson : 7 shots, 1 goal , 55% faceoff, +2 , 19.44 playing time.
Kassian : 0 shots, 0 goals , 0 assists, 0 faceoff, -1 , 11:20 playing time.
Yeah i know he was a baby and supposedly wanted out, but man this organisation has let some good ones get away.

I hate when people say "it's only one game." You have to learn that Canucks fans are fickle and will always be upset after a loss. Saying that it is only one game just gets tired and annoying.

Pointing out that a centre won more faceoffs than a winger is kind of a weak comparison. How many hits did Hodgson make? He many fights did he win?

1. one player should not make this much of a difference on an elite team that has won the presidents trophy two years running
2. see #1
3. see #2
4. see #3

5. Booth is a wash. He will be traded.

6. true. our team took 6 months off (unless you count playing shinny at UBC) and now we're seeing the fruits of that labour.

7. 20 games don't count? How about 40 games? would that count? Because in a half season, that's what we're talking about, genius.

Ok, first off.......all the experts say it will be a very tight race this year for the playoff spots, with alot of teams being just left out.......my point wasn't that 20 games don't count, but that the difference between winning 40% and 60% after 20 games isn't that large of a point spread to make up. I will say it slower if you would like!

Secondly, now that we have 4 games under our belt and are 2-1-1, all the bandwagoners like you are silent. If you were a prize fighter and got punched, you stay down and start crying after the first punch! Baby!

So, I got news for you sour bandwagoner! It will change again! The Canucks will not win all 44 remaining games! They will play good and bad, and you can go around every bad game and insult people for not panicing, or having a difference of opinion. In the mean time, RELAX! Goes for the rest of you wankers too!
