Tonight is a good example of what happens when you fail to compete...the Sedins didn't bother showing up until the final five minutes of the game...as good as they were last night, they were equally bad tonight. They should not have even bothered making the trip to Calgary.

Travel to Calgary is only one hour by chartered air...90 minutes if they were in holding pattern due to bad weather; from NW Calgary to Saddledome is 30 to 40 minutes by chartered bus; they may have been delayed prior to departure so the entire travel may have been 5-6 hours, but most of that is waiting in a private airport lounge or on board the plane where they can rest (albeit, it isn't the comfort of a bed where they would be having their pre-game nap). Point is, fatigue isn't what caused tonight's lack of effort, especially three days of rest they had prior to the LA game.

There was no speed on the puck, failure to win puck battles, failure to close it out early in the game when we had energy...I honestly thought that we were ready to go on a roll after last nights game. What a disappointment...it looks like we have a .500 club going forward...this team is looking more and more like a group of pretenders than contenders.

Lastly, a career AHL/ECHLer outplayed Lu tonight...shameful.


1 more goal and the goalie gets completly outplayed? Their goalie had to outplay our team to give the Flames a chance to win...Goalies don't really compete or outplay other goalies. I guess then you can say Schnieder who hasn't played a full season yet outplayed Quick the Conn Smythe winner.

What happened with that Schroeder goof in the faceoff circle? That was kind of weird. Why didn't the linesmen wait for him? Is that kosher, or is it another example of bad reffing?

When are people going to actually blame the players and the coaches for a loss that shouldn't have happened instead of refs and travel? This is happening practically every game now and has been for the better part of a year.

Seriously, suck it up Canucks.......if you are this tired 20 games in you may as well phone it in the rest of the way and go for a high draft pick.

Time to make a move Gillis........whatever it takes to inject some heart. Firing AV and company would be a great place to start.

Schneider won 1 last night after losing game before.....1 win goalie is on a winning streak? Lu lets in 5 or more, you got a point it was 3-2 before a empty net

After we beat the Stars 4-3, people were saying Schneider played solid just because we won.

Lu lets in 3 but we lose by a goal, all his fault, he is on the downhill.....lol k

AV taking about accountability???? LOL With his country club atmosphere for his favorites on this team? What a joke.

And as for the first comment, the only Canuck who would actually say AV did deserve the penalty is probably Ballard.....lol. Honestly, what does anyone think Canucks players would say?

Biased refs as usual. AV with a penalty? This is so embarrassing to watch these days. Can the nhl ever get anything right??

Wasn't the only reason we lost, but it did lead to the game winning goal for calgary

We got out played by the Flames. That is bad. Let's hope it was just the travel disruption, because the team just didn't look awake for most of the game. No one was particularly bad. It's the fact that it's just like the last few games that is worrying. We need to get into gear before the season passes us by. Maybe slipping into a division race with the Wild wouldn't be a bad thing.

I see Sestito is going after Odjick's record (444G, ~4.8PM/G). It's good to have a goon on the team. His hockey skills don't look all that bad either.

This the same Sutherland ref who let bruins walk free after Mason Raymond had his back broke?


I liked the way the league "ammended" that rule after the series to point out that that should have been a match penalty for Boychuck. I think, even with out anemic special teams in the Finals, we could have won the cup with a 59 minute power play.

Ballard benched again. I was at work for the game, how did Barker play? Can someone please summarize?


I thought Barker looked like a TOP 4 D tonight to be honest, i paid close attention to his game tonight. very solid, got a bunch of pucks on net unlike most our other D, no glaring mistakes, good coverage. all in all i really liked what i saw there.

Can't speak for everyone, but I thought he had a solid game. He got an assist, took a few good shots at the goal, played pretty solid in the d-zone. Wasn't a huge splash, but he wasn't a bonehead so that's a plus.

Not impressed at all with Sestito though.


yup Barker looked solid but i disagree on Sestito, more of a force yesterday but for god sake , give dude a pass, he was beast last night,sparked the team and even took on McGratton even though he mainly hung on and made sure he didnt get knocked out.
We need a dude like this in the lineup. He's gonna be a solid 4th liner.

I like how Barker always takes the shot from the point. Got an assist on a rebound from a blue-line wrister. Other than that, didn't notice him much.


which u want from a Defensemen. made good outlet passes.

Face it guys, the Canucks have set the standard for themselves high. They got to the SCF a couple years ago and completely blew it worse than many losing teams have throughout history. A lot of fans are going to be quite testy and critical until the team gets it done. Kudos to those who are pretty mellow but the critics have a right to sound off the way they do after bad losses, in my opinion.

We may all react differently to how the Canucks play but I believe for the most part every fan absolutely loves this team and wants the same thing: the Cup.

Where's salo, Volpatti, Torres, Erhoff, grabner?

Why are booth, garrison, sestito in canucks lineup!?

Gillis for GM of the year

Booth invisible, Garrison is decent and Sestito was aweosme last night jesus christ. Some of these sky is falling fanboys need to smoke some kush.

Aside from the awful reffing, Luongo's soft goal is inexcusable! that should never ever go in from that distance and clear sight of the damn puck!


agree 100%. a goalie making 6 million year should give his owner a 100K refund for letting in something that weak.
that goal will be seen around the league and followed by chuckles.


I was impressed with Sesito and his on ice awareness, cycled well.

Not a liability on his shifts, like it.


i saw the same thing he is solid positionally makes good plays (one bad pass) and stir things up, we need that.
Sestito was awesome last night and fine tonight, looked good the first couple periods outside of the hugfest with psycho McGratton.

Dan Murphy@sportsnetmurph
AV was hot after the game. Said he stood on the bench and yelled "that's an elbow" and got whistled. No swearing and no previous warning.

This pisses me off.


Bush League Clownshow, the inconsistency is amateur hour.

i don't understand why people are calling for AV's head. The PP is struggling due to Kesler's absence, t and the Canucks were out of gas in the third, in conjunction to the BS penalty call on AV which cost Vancouver the game. pretty simple
