Listen guys, we are only 2 games in to the season, are team is starting to get going a little shaking off their rust. In the first 2 games a positive is that the sedins,edler, Kassian and weise have playeed solid, other then that everyone has been fair with the exception of ebbett the 2nd line center, who had 0 for everything on the stat sheet last night.
I think we have a great first line with Kassian or with Burrows and I also think our third line is the best in the NHL which involves Higgins-Lapierre-Hansen, providing AV gives them a little time to build chemistry with one another. Thats why I was not happy when AV did a full shakeup last game, Keeping ebbett on the 2nd line and demoting Burrows and others. I have also heard about 3 people in Canucks nation criticizing the play of Burrows and Lapierre, but im going to tell u like i said before no one has played that much better then them except for the sedins,edler,kassian and weise. Burrows will get going soon by the way, and a little fun fact for everyone Lapierre put on 13 pounds thiss off season and promised to keep down the yapping so u guys should be at least giving him a little credit, not to mention that he is one of the only plus players on the team being on the ice for a goal against Anaheim and Edmonton. So lets stop criticizing players after 2 games other then ebbett who at least played in Chicago. Because we are way to nervous and we still have a long road to the playoffs.

Finally a post with some clear thinking!!!!

I have to agree that Ebbett needs work and unfortunately, there isn't much we can do in that department... moving Schroeder up would not be the brightest endeavour seeing as that he isn't NHL ready but HEY, you never know!

Time people time, we have plenty of it and let's take it a game at a time. We have dropped 2 games...omg we have dropped 2 games...really!!? who cares!

Once we start moving we will REALLY start moving and will do fairly well down the stretch especially with 2 top goalies :)

The good news is, we get to play the Flamez next.
Hopefully that will kick start them.

Kirk: Maybe he's not out there, Bones. Maybe he's right here. [points to his heart]

quite an over reaction... just look at the standings ( yes i am aware its only 1-2 games in for teams) but still some people just dont realize its sooooo early... Philly AND NYR ar both 0-2-0 . thats worse than us and they were both touted as stanley cup contenders by many..

the canucks will be just fine... whether its first or eighth... just get into the playoffs and work your magic there... just look at the kings last year.... canucks in 94... ravens made it to the superbowl last night by being 10 point underdogs 2 games in a row....

just get in the playoffs and anything can happen!!!

no need to panic, we have the pieces to win, and the assets to help us improve before the deadline as well ( luongo, ballard(not really an asset at this point, but could be used in some package), raymond etc)

Our fans are stupid. Eventually, hopefully not for a few more seasons but eventually we are gonna have to have a couple of losing seasons to clear out all the dead wood.

I dont think this will be a losing season. I also dont think this will be a presidents trophy season. We will still make the playoffs and with a healthy roster, hopefully can make a deep run into said playoffs.

There have been some positives despite all the negativity around here.

- Garrison has looked great so far.

- Weise has been playing like a top-6 forward.

- Tanev has looked great and looks determined to score his first goal.

- Volpatti looks amazing physically.

- Luongo has looked solid.

- Kassian, Hansen and Sedins have played great.

We will have to fight harder to get a good spot in the playoffs this year it wont be given to the canucks which hopefully prepares them for the playoffs where you have to fight to win every night!!

The only problem I see is that it can't be a 100 point season and there won't be any 100 points players in the team. Ok only 1 point from 4, there are another 92 available!!! We WILL make the playoffs.

Go Canucks Go
Go CANUCKS Go.

That being said. If the Canucks lose to the Flames on Wednesday they are in serious,serious trouble.

In this shortened season Wednesday's game against a weak opponent is a absolute must win for the Canucks.
