Im looking forward to that LA game it could be just what the doctor ordered....

if the canucks come out and actually play a decent game....

so far this year I haven't seen a game were the canucks goalie has not bailed out the team...(other then the duck game)

I feel this game will be either the turning point which gets this team going or the reality of this team will be shown ......


Last Game against LA this year the Canuck's barely got through Luongo stood on his head if you recall...

simply put quit making the excuses AV your on thin ice

Can't wait for Saturday

If we lose changes HAVE to be made. Most notably the coaching staff needs a shake-up.

Canucks seem to be trying to reserve their energy. It worked well last year, why not try it again?

The Los Angeles game will be just " another game ". No " turning point " or " reality " sorry to say. Sounds nice and dramatic though.

You can't predict turning points, or moments where a team gets hot or falls flat. These are things you look back on afterwards and say " the team really took off from " that game " on or opposite.

I am sorry the Canucks lost, contrary to your remarks AV is the furthest thing from being on thin ice lol.

Saturday against Los Angeles is just another game, maybe at most for media and fans to suggest a " measuring stick " against a Champion ( of last season ).

With three days off the Canucks ought to look a lot better, get some practice time in, they look like they could use it. Kassian, Kesler, Booth and the D need time to work on some things. Short season and odd schedule is causing problems.

Honestly hopin for a 5-0 loss with cory in net so both goalies are held to same light. I love this team but sick of gliding by. 2 playoffs in a row we are eliminated for one reason only. Lack of scoring. All the focus is goalies but 4-0 means we did not score.

So these loses are 'karma' because Gillis put Manny on the IR for the rest of the year to not risk anymore damage to his eye? K

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Okay. Why are you making two consecutive losses a great deal? You don't need to troll and exaggerate this to the point of "determining the ultimate fate" of the Vancouver Canucks. Stop using your troops to spam the hell out of this place. :)

People should know by now at this point the reg season means nothing with this current team, who cares, 3rd place is locked down. It's all one long practice, wake me up when the playoffs start.

Is troll the only word you know in your vocabulary?
Every time I see you post, you continually refer to people that might have altering opinions as trolls.

Could it be that maybe, just maybe people feel like a message board could be used to discuss and debate differing opinions?

Teams play the way they practice...
You say regular season means nothing to this team but apparently the playoffs don't either because we've only been past the 2nd round once under AV's tenure.

Say that nothing changes with this team, do you honestly think we can flip the switch and win the cup?

Dude, one good game away from winning the cup, did you just become a fan last night?

can you flip the switch? cup champions LA Kings

everyone loves to break things down game by game, play by play, like it really means anything. Going on a cup run is going on a cup run, that's all it is, it's getting hot at the right time. Does this mean the Blue Jackets are going to win the cup? of course not but the Canucks are not the Blue Jackets, they are in the top 10 teams in the league and if any one of those teams gets hot at the right time they have a good chance of winning the cup.

We were going to flip our switch last year but it didn't work. Any evidence this year to suggest otherwise?
