Most of the impatient fans are the ones that started cheering for the Canucks during the SCF run because anyone that has followed this team for a decade or 2 or 4 has to be patient, or they would have died a long time ago.

I just want to be entertained

give me an effort so I can happily watch with beer and Doritos.

OP, I would agree with you the losing 1 or few games and then jumping on the players or management calling out for changes, player moves, etc is being impatient. There's a reason the game is played on the ice, and not on some stat sheet or highest payroll (remember when NY continuously tried to buy a cup and didnt acheive the expectation) or roster on paper. It's the human performance factor that provides the competition and that for me, is what makes the team fun and exciting to watch, and to continue to support. Sometimes it seems there is an entitlement belief from some of the fan base...but that's just my 2 cents only and could be off base.

I don't know, I used to dream of a Canucks' Stanley Cup and how awesome that would be, but after 2011, I just felt dejected and bitter.

Everything seemed to come together until the Finals. Then things started to go south. After Game 5, I thought "Only have to win 1 of the next 2 games and the Canucks will have a Stanley Cup!!"

Then came 2 of the most disappointing playoff games I have ever seen.

I could stomach 1994. It was close. The Canucks were in it, right to the end. Sure they weren't favourites, but Linden left it all on the ice, despite being really banged up.

But this last one hit me hard. The Canucks wilted like dead flowers, Lou couldn't make the big save, and the Twins were being beat up like schoolyard geeks. I know they had injuries. I know they were tired. It was still disappointing to see them bow out like that.

I am no longer impatient. I continue to watch the Canucks each game and I will always be a supportive fan. As long as they play hard and try to win each game, I will be happy. However, I am not holding my breath on a championship anytime soon. If they couldn't win with the lineup they had two years ago being the odds on favourite, the chance of them getting it done this year or anytime in the near future seems doubtful at best. My advice: Enjoy the games, enjoy the action, but don't take it too seriously. After all, it's just a game.

The impatience come from the same old mistakes and the lack inept of coaching abilities . No innovation and lack of direction on the ice ect. ect. ect. When the team with the right coaching could be dominating, explosive and an exciting third period team to watch. Instead their left frustrated playing an exposed system.
