3rd in the western conference and it's time to give up? Lol.

Every team has a low point in the season, let's hope this is the part of the season we can look back on and shudder....and maybe they will get hot at just the right time.

As good as the Hawks are right now, they won't keep this pace all season, this start may just prove to be too much of a toll in the end when the playoffs start, not likely in a short season, but one can hope.

Sorry, you seem to be missing the option:

"Give up while we are leading our division? What sort of doofus would suggest that?!!"

My suspicion is that one would be leading the poll.

I agree with the Galaxy Quest quote....."Never give up. Never surrender!"

Now we just need our guys to embody that slogan as if Sarris himself were after the Cup.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Give up??? We're in 3rd freaking place dude. If we we're in Columbus's position then maybe, but still you never give up.

I actually like the fact that Kesler and bieksa will be rested for the playoffs. Theyll both need to play big minutes in the second season. I think it should be clear by now winning the regular season doesn't help much in the playoffs. We re doing fine.

Not that I necessarily agree with OP, but let's not forget that our record so far is far from stellar. 10-5-4 is, in my book, 10 wins and 9 losses. Nothing to show off for.

I mean I do believe they'll make it, but we sure have lost the feeling from 10-11 season where I thought they played like they were invincible.

oh buddy, those days are long gone. But as a fan I like to stay positive and back the team. Right now there are some major injuries, but anyone whois played hockey will know that an injury or 2 will not phase the team.

The Canucks fan base has become so spoiled. 'OMG we are not undefeated, throw in the towel!'

Could you imagine being a Flames fan right now. Especially after what has happened over the last 24 hours. They almost lost a 1rst, 3rd and the player they were trying to acquire for absolutely nothing! That would have been a devastating blow. Now that's a fan base that could probably consider 'giving up' on the season, and probably the franchise.

It makes me laugh when people actually think the CDC is a majority voice of Canucks fans :lol:

There is a small handful of whiny babies on this board who flood it with negativity. They certainly don't speak for me when they come on here ranting after a loss. This is a sport, all teams lose, all teams have thier short comings, all teams cannot win the SC, some children and some mentally challenged adults that frequent the CDC just do not understand this.

When you say "everyone is frustrated" you are wrong. I'm completely thrilled with the entertainment the Canucks have provided over the past couple of years, I know a SC will come to Vancouver eventually and I'm in no hurry as long as the product is entertaining. Gillis and AV have a team right now that will consistantly make the playoffs, it's only a matter of time before the Canucks have everything go well for them come playoff time.


It stands to reason that I would enjoy a post made by my two favorite things.

Well done, sir.

I would not say to give up on this season but I really think that the Cancuks window of oppertunity with this group before they have to start rebuilding is almost shut. Not only are the key people like the Sedins getting past their best years but other teams in the conference and division are getting better. The way they are playing right now it just might be anothere early playoff exist for the team.

Many on this board are just simply stupid and have no concept of how to win. They see a loss or a bad couple games and say EVERYTHING needs to change. They are too stupid to realize that changes more often than not actually disadvantage the team, especially when so many things are working or at least have the potential.

It is a shame that the .org never figured out that last year they should have given up and received some draft picks.
Kes hurt on multiple levels but still allowed to play out the season.
Daniel Sedin out with a concussion.
Hodgson gone and replaced with what was then a dough boy that could not play fourth line minutes.
Defensive depth Sulzer gone and moves and picks lost with Gragnani and Pahlsson.

It is laughable how many peope fail to actually read the original thread. The question was is it time to give up on this season? The text of the original post clearly says no it is not time to give up. It says have patience.

Sheesh.

Do they have any hope of getting past the second round? Not a chance.

If the thread and poll question said this, the results would be much more split than they are now. This is the real question people should be concerned about. Belief, faith and patience aren't going to get the Canucks into the second round nor will it win games for them. The only thing that will help them is if they decide to play better.

i don't think we'll miss the playoff.. but if we continue the way we play we might end up somewhere in the 5th-8th seeding instead with no home advantage throughout the playoff
