What is going on with all these stupid decisions?

- AV not ever talking to his players. Sedins and Bieksa can't coach the team... Luongo is on the bench and going to be traded, so it's not like he's going to have much to say here motivationally either

- Dressing Ebbett over Vandermeer? Everyone knows the Sharks are a huge tough team and the Canucks aren't, why wouldn't we slot in our toughest player to take the toll off Kass and others?

No, instead Kassian has to risk getting injured while he's playing great and has to fight one of the leagues toughest guys. Him and Volpatti both got dummied by bigger stronger players. I'm sure Kass lost a little bit of his confidence losing that the way he did too.

IMO if we depend on Kassian to be our only heavyweight while he's this young we could ruin his development or he could get badly injured and not be the same..

- Drop pass. WTF. Do they not realize teams figured this out halfway through last season? Our powerplay needs to be revamped.



I think the Canucks need a new voice, sure AV's a good coach, but the players need someone to coach them this year, instead of letting them figure things out themselves even if they're a "veteran group"

I agree with Vandermeer being on the team. Kassian shouldn't have to fight all the time.

1. How do you know AV doesn't talk to his players? Are you in the locker room in the intermission to see/hear what goes on?

2. Ebbett is a forward, Vandermeer is a defenseman. I don't understand why this is a dilemma in your mind...I have seen rumors about Vandermeer dressing as a forward, but...I mean, come on...

3. Who cares about the drop pass. It seemed to be a neutral play last night, didn't hinder nor help us. If you think you can do much better, you go coach the team.

Maybe AV just needs new gum. Variety in his flavour might add variety to his coaching decisions for the better.

Well Ebbett has only been in the line-up because Manny and his wife had another baby, right?

Does anyone know when Malhotra is coming back/if he's already back?

Pretty sure Lappierre is sitting and Ebbet is in.

Lappy should be out. He's been forced to play with a slightly pulled groin. Giving him time to heal up is the right decision before it gets worse and he's out for a long time.

Actually if you look him up he is listed as a LW/D. He has consistently played forward on various teams over his career. He plays both with toughness but he has his lapses.

First of all Ebbet replaces Lapierre because Lapierre is suffering from a goin strain. I agree Ebbet isn't doing it but is an experienced player. Kassian has to learn not to drop his gloves with a guy like Clowe at the end of his shift, I bet he doesn't do it again. I think the Canucks might waste Kassian if he's going to be sitting in the box...bring back Vandermeer IMO.

Kassian is trying to make an impact anyway he can and that includes fighting. I don't mind him fighting guys like Clowe. He should stay away from fighting 4th line goons like Eager.

The Canucks have become a reactionary team especially after the first line....it appears they have no game plan....it is obvious what a team like San Jose employs as strategy....first they have a strategy and they stuck to it snd that is to be physical and intimidate from the opening face off....and it works against us.

We don't have the physical response required due to our undersized and less than physical line up....and right now, or whenever our powerplay is failing, we can't respond on the board either......

http://www.nhl.com/i...avid=nhl-search I see him listed as a D-man. But I will agree with you, Schroeder is 5'8, Ebbett is 5'9 (Ive heard that is exaggerated also).

So we had two tiny centers verses the sharks who have one of the biggest teams in the league. Then the other two, Burrows and Sedin aren't the most intimidating people in the league, in fact they are usually the ones getting bullied the most on our team. Forget the fact that Burrows isn't even a centre. Normally I would say size isn;t an issue, but man did the Canucks play/look intimidated, coughing the puck up at every chance...

I think Burrows needs to get back with the Sedins. Let Schroeder set up Kassian with those amazing cross ice sauces.
