I hate saying this but it appears the Canucks are in big trouble. Minny will catch us tonight and be ahead of us by the end of the weekend. Never to look back, which means we might not even make the playoffs. If this happens...I hope the owners look hard at management. We don't want M.G. making any more trades as he has proven that he can't make one that has helped this team. He would only be throwing assets away to try and save his job.


I think the only way to remedy this issue would be to make a trade. Either that, or something else would have to be done. It may be as simple as the coaching staff making adjustments to the team's strategy. If the team remains complacent, however, nothing will change.

Looks like i'm with the majority on this one, I feel the coaching staff have become a downside to this club. We need a new set of coaches. Our powerplay and penalty kill have become pathetic shadows of what they once were, our defence looks like a bunch of blind idiots half the time and no one is playing hungry. On top of that I have never thought of AV as a solid coach for developing youth which is becoming an issue for this club as we are looking to get younger and have lots of young talent close to, or already NHL ready (Gaunce, Jensen, Kassian, Schroeder etc.)

I want to see a group of coaches who are not afraid to rip the team a new one when it's warranted, a set of coaches who are more than willing to put young players in the positions they need to be in so they can develop into the players we want them to be (ex: Kassian on the 3rd/4th line will result in him never being better than a 3rd/4th liner. He NEEDS top 6 minutes to develop properly into the power forward we know he can be.)

AV and crew had their time, they could not get it done and they barely, if ever, showed the tenacity behind the bench that cup winning coaches have shown time and time again. It sucks because I wanted to see this team, coaches included, bring home Lord Stanley; however it seems that they aren't the group to make it happen. This team is too talented to be 1st/2nd round exits in the playoffs or even miss the post season all together.

Now, it's too late for a coaching change at this stage in a short season but, if they cannot go to at the very least the conference finals, then I think it's time to move on with a new coaching staff.

The idea of Minnesota overtaking us is far from unrealistic. The idea of the Canucks STAYING behind Minnesota is hard to fathom. We are in a mini-slump here, there's no question. A trade might be the answer...but saying it will be so don't make it so. The Wild are a much better team this year, and the Northwest is starting to get competitive. But doom and gloom posts are indeed indicative of a 'nittwitt'. The canucks don't like looking up at anyone, and I think this will be the wake-up call they need, to be honest.

I hope our division picks up and we fall into like 3rd place, it would be nice to watch the Canucks have to actually try every night again instead of coasting into the playoffs and getting owned.

I understand the concern but I donít believe they will pass us. They might tie us for a brief period but nothing more than that. Now with that said, it is my assumption this next month will make or break our season. We have 16 games in the 31 days in March; I believe that if we can go something like 9-3-4 we will have the division on lock down and looking forward to our playoff seed. The thing is; we need to play hard hockey and put in an effort for the full 60 min. I am hoping that our recent waiver claim will be able to maybe have enough of a shake up to the team that gets our guys going. If we donít have a record similar to what I suggested then there might be more drastic action taken at the deadline but we can only sit back and watch it all unfold.

Anything is possible... its even possible for Calgary to catch up. The difference from the top of NW leader to bottom is 6 points... so nothing is unrealistic and there is no question about the troubles lurking around Canucks; they lurk around like flies around a pile of doodoo.

:picard:

I understand how frustrating it can be when your team underperforms, especially when they've has so much success in the past few season. You guys have a really good team, but this doesn't seem to be your season with all the injuries and drama surroundig the club. Gillis is a good GM, but he's in a tough spot right now to make a reasonable deal. I'd bet on some big changes (i.e. trades) in the summer.
