We are too easy to play against.
Backes running Luongo without any repercussions? I dont think people really appreciate or understand just how abnormal it is for a NHL team to behave like ours does.
Make whatever excuses you like, I dont like our chances when we are so easy to intimidate.
Sam Gagner told me straight up he couldn't believe nobody on the Canucks took a suspension out on Keith after what he did to Sedin. i agreed with Sam 100%. its a total and complete joke that this team doesn't step up and fight for each other.
the entire league knows this, the Canucks won't fight for each other, run them, injure them, do whatever you like. no retribution.
i know myslef and more than half the fan base is also sick of the kumbaya routine.
I think the Canucks need another Raffi Torres type player
we need 3 more pieces imo....a skilled physical leader that can fight anybody and motivate the room (shane doan/ryan clowe type) a bonafide heavyweight that can beat up most ( ie..Shawn Thornton,Chris Neil, Corton Orr) and a big nasty Defensemen that can intimidate and clear the front of the net and knock guys on their a**.
This team is way too soft and will be exposed come spring time when the whistles go away.
