Only 2 games in but the lack of offense is a little bit of a worry.
They miss Kesler's jump on that 2nd line.

Can't wait to get the feeling of a win, they need to pick it up!

Shooters need to deke more in the shootouts like the Oilers did to get the goalie moving. The shootouts we do win, is always the goalie being almost perfect and we get 1 and sometimes 2 goals. Been this way for years.

meh i'll be surprise we win any shootouts ever against skill teams. we simply don't have the ppl to do it. when your defenseman is one of your best at shootouts.. something is wrong. better effort overall. decent game by Luongo considering it's the canucks second game back to back even at home since it's the first 2 real game for most players vs a young fresh edmonton team

Defense needs to tighten up and we need more solid goaltending.

Oh, and for the love of god. Send a d-man down and bring Schroeder up, Ebbett is just not cutting it.

I hate Shootout..
Kassian was awesome on the ice tonight! Love how he nailed that Eager and pumping up the crowd!
Lu did great, he can't do anything about the first goal. The 2nd goal left him hanging dry with no defensemen around. Terrible at shootout as usual, not surprising.
Get...Rid...of....Ebbett...Please!

At least 1 point is better than nothing!

I think its clear goaltending has never been this teams problems for the last few years. PP was dry, offense needs to pick it up, d giving up a lot of clear breaks or just getting beat clean on the outside.

Off to a slow start. I was afraid of this.

Team need those extra points but what can we do, they suck at shootouts.

No killer insctinct.

If nothing changes, there is no way the will win the cup.

Improved over last game but not enough, Of course this is just arm chair coaching but I'd like to see kassian start with the sedins next game, burrows down to the second line and weise switched with raymond, Also I wouldn't mind seeing schroeder called up and ebbet just scratched.

Lu probably would like that second goal back but what happens happens. Also shootouts suck; along with our powerplay tonight.

Typical Canucks.... Power play is MIA, sit back on a lead, and an AV favorite blows the game with an untimely penalty (ebbett).... Oh and luongo who can't save a beachball in shoot outs.....


This team looks to be a fringe team even with booth and Kesler back. If it means we get the top pick and regroup for next year then I'm all for a losing season which they are off to a good start

Lui was great and kept us in it. Good to see he's stil his old self and can give you a chance to win every night.

Hamhuis hasn't looked too good imo...
Eddie looked really bad on the Eberle goal... I'd expect Eberle to do that to Tanev or Ballard but not Eddie.
Kassian working hard and paid off
Weise is looking sharp
Lappy hasn't been as good as expected.

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

I think this team needs an infusion of new blood. Both through the farm and through trade. They look like they did not have a 9 month rest.

I think the Canucks young guns played the best tonight (tanev, kassian, weise, volpatti). Maybe not surprising considering most have been playing during lockout. For that reason (and ebbetts not doing much), I'd call Schroeder up. It can't get worse, lol.

Not a big deal, if they're still blowing 2 goal leads in a week I'd be concerned, but not now.

Also, Tanev needs more TOI. IMO, he's been the best d-man the last 2 games (defensivly and puck moving). They need to rely on who's playing better right now while the others find their game.


On to the next..

Hiller isn't too bad tbh but the Coilers still suck and will still finish near the bottom of the standings, if not the very bottom.

2 games in no way to think this team is going to tank also if kesler and booth were playing we wouldn't have ebbet and raymond playing the on our 2nd line they probably wouldn't even be in the line up the team would be doing way better

Our shootout attempts throughout the years have never been good. Other players just stick handle and deke easily. The shootout wins have always been goalies being perfect because we only score 1 goal.

We can't rush Kes back, but we are totally missing his presence on the PP and PK, both non-existent.

Impressed by Weise and Kassian tonight though.

Garrison was solid, hoping to see more from him as he develops chemistry with Edler

"The Canucks, are like North America, many of us have it so much better than others around the world or NHL, and we don't properly appreciate what we have."

"If Canucks fans hate Mason Raymond so bad, then you should have said something before the trade deadline! Because the Leafs would have totally taken him. I mean, can he score? Can he play a HINT of defense? WE'LL TAKE HIM! WE'LL TAKE TWO!"

- Steve Dangle (Leafs Fan Reaction - youtube)
