As a hockey fan and a die hard Canucks fan I have one request of all media surrounding our Canucks.

PLEASE STOP ASKING THE GOALIES AND COACHES ABOUT THE GOALIE SITUATION!!!!!

None of you interviewers are going to come up with a new way of asking about the "coin toss" or what the goalies think the reasoning is behind the decision.

You are not going to finally get AV to show his hand and give you his true thoughts on the subject.

You are not going to gain any new insight into the situation.

Let it go! Please. We are so sick of hearing the same crappy questions that elicit the same non-committal responses from the players and coaches. Can't you tell by the look in the players and coaches faces that they think you are fools for even asking??? And we the public are really sick of it as well!

Chasing this "story" with no new events to report is really really poor journalism. It only serves to make you all look inept. At what point are you going to realize that no one is going to tell you anything new????

I would really rather here you ask players about the wins in a row, about injury recovery, about line changes, about the super skills comp, about upcoming games........ anything!!!!

Pick yourselves up out of the gutters and start asking something that will get us fans (who you are working to impress and entertain) something to talk about around the proverbial water cooler.

That's my point!!!! There are TONS of other things I would love to know about the team and players! That is the medias job, to know what questions to ask!

Hey! Minnesota is coming to town. They made some major upgrades to their offense this off season. What do our defencemen feel they are going to be up against? How are they going to deal with it? See what I just did there? I DIDN'T ask about the goalies!!!! And I cook for a living!!!! Maybe I should change careers!

The media needs something people will listen to. They certainly wont want to hear about curling or badminton.

Yup, but it is full of threads about Luongo or Schneider or both. Some people just need to vent, regardless of how effective it is, or if it follows the board rules or not.

If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.

I'm not for the goalie questions but I'm also not into generic questions like this as they usually demand generic answers.

I would ask Hank if he's looking forward to becoming our frachises all time #1 scorer tonight after we spank the wild.

I'd also Ask him how he feels about accompanying that with a hatty ;)

+ 1! Great question! I agree with you. Just showing how easy it is to avoid the goalie issue.

Maybe it the team hadn't dragged this on so long they wouldn't have the need to ask about it.

next time av lou or cory is interviewed, they should have kb stand in the background waiting for the inevitible question. at that time he should call thier phone. when av, cory lou answer, make it look like the call is very important and walk out on the interview.
not just to be rude, to let them sit there and speculate if its a call about a trade.

If you really hate the media boycott it. If we all stopped buying the paper it would stop.

This will never happen though, its just like flipping over a dead crow to look at all the maggots, as gross and wrong as it is, it feeds our curiosity.

I'm not a mod, so I'll just give my opinion on this thread:

Considering the Canucks Talk forum is "For Canucks related talk only. Game day threads and team specific info." do you think a thread talking about the Vancouver media (all media for that matter) fits that description? If you feel that the discussion is more about the media talking about Luongo and Schneider (along with the trade rumours or just who starts) then would one of the many existing threads not already do the trick?

It's personal opinion, but I certainly find it annoying to have a new thread (apart from the GDT) which usually are redundant (which was my point) for each time an announcement is made on who starts next, any new article on the goalie situation, and every time Luongo tweets. We've manager to roll most of that into a few threads (like the Luongo discussion thread and GDTs) but then some don't like to have their post lost in with all the other ideas that relate to those topics.

One thing's for sure, no one from the media will be reading this so it'll have literally no effect on what they do.

I wish the media would report a whole lot more about the team's prospects. I'm sure a large contingent of Canucks fans are interested in that subject.

Re: the goaltending situation, I think there's a balance here. Yes, the media has to stop asking the coach, GM and the goalies themselves about the goalie situation. However, it is true that the whole thing is one giant question mark that's still floating around out there and the organization has to understand that as long as there's no concrete resolution, speculation will run rampant and reporters will inquire a thousand different ways because that's their job and everyone just wants to know what's going on! Am I happy to have both here, knowing that this team is going to get elite goaltending every night? You bet, but I'm also getting kind of anxious to know what direction the organization is going in already. I realize Gillis doesn't want to be too transparent about his intentions as well, so I don't know. I guess the fans and the media just have to enjoy this situation while it lasts and try not to worry about what's going on behind the scenes, while the Canucks also have to accept that they're going to have to keep answering questions about it.

Well said sir +1 for you.

elvis 15 thinks every thread that isn't the forum rules is redundant so don't take it to heart.

WTF?!

I had no idea this was happening.

Crazy.

People and media actually think this way?

I thought the only newsworthy goalie story was the Flames lack of depth with backstoppers.

The media asks the questions because its what people want them to ask, same reason the board is filled with people talking about the same thing. It's all about getting the most interest in there broadcast, if people didn't care they would ask something different. I would love for them to ask insightful questions and use the time to educate the fans on the team but its not going to happen for the same reason that Justin Bebber is selling records.

I feel the need to mention that there is no evidence that Einstein ever said or wrote that line you have given as a quote. it IS a phrase commonly used in Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, in use since the early 80s.

Other than that, totally agree lol
