OMG this is too funny... Let me see if I have your last two posts straight:
Absolutely! Just imagine we replaced Columbus, and had to play Chicago, Detroit, Nashville and St. Louis a lot more often. There is no way that we would have won a Presidents Trophy. I'm also not saying that Ruff would have won us the cup in 2011, but I am saying AV didn't. If it wasn't for Luongo robbing Sharp in game 7 against Chicago and Burrows scoring the game winner, AV would have been canned and this conversation would never take place. I'm also saying that there is no excuse for losing in 5 games to the Kings. I don't care how much they dominated other teams. We shouldn't have to make excuses for losing to anyone, as we should be able to compete with anyone. And are you really gonna say you're happy with the way the team has played this season? They lose by 4 goals to Anaheim, then beat terrible Calgary and Edmonton teams, then lose by 4 goals to San Jose, and beat lousy Dallas and Minnesota teams... This is how we win President's Trophys. We win a couple half-ass games against terrible teams and get blown out when real competition shows up. This is why AV has to go.
1. We should have won the cup the last two years straight because we won the president's trophy and were therefore the best team - because we didn't win the cup = AV's fault.
2. We weren't good enough to win the President's trophy the last two years, we only won because our division sucks donkey genitalia, therefore we actually sucked = AV's fault.
Well there is no arguing with that logic (lack of, that is) so I will let you keep whining and just some advice every game that AV is still the head coach of the Canucks you should monitor your blood pressure, we wouldn't want to lose you to an anger induced heart attack and not get to read these amazing posts ROFL.
