Canucks 3-5-1 in past 9 games. Time to panic?

The Canucks are now 3-5-1 over their past 9 games. This has caused them to drop from having a secure hold on the division title and almost a sure spot on the playoffs, to being in jeopardy of being in 9th or 10th place in the conference and missing the playoffs. I've seen this story before. For those who take our playoff berths as granted, let me assure you that nothing is written in stone. We've missed the playoffs twice since the dreaded Mark Messier years, and we could miss them again.

At what point is it time to panic? And let me define some examples of panic:

- Making a big trade
- Firing AV or MG
- AV calling the team out publicly
- Dissention in the locker room

We're 4-4-2 in our last 10, so how did we lose 1 more in 1 fewer games?

How about we lost 100% of our games in our 1 game losing streak?

It's not time to panic really, although this team could use a change here or there to shake things up. I would start by relieving AV of his duties and trading Luongo+ for the best package we could get.

As for the playoffs, personally I wouldn't be too concerned. We'll most likely win the division although I think it'll be close this year, and if no shakeup is made prior to the trade deadline we'll possibly win round 1 of the playoffs and bow out quietly after that.

They always stay the same lame duck course.
Av is starting to panic though as he see Minny taking the division lead soon due to his lame duck style.
AV's hoping his style eventually will lay the golden egg.

It's always darkest before the dawn.

Right handed D and a center before the deadline. Mayray, Ballard and Booth (assuming Jensen comes) on the block.

You've actually got it wrong...

I wrestled with leaving this open as there obviously is some sense of concern. Personally, the regular season doesn't mean anything except that you must get into the playoffs...so the time to panic is when that is in danger. Once you're in, it all starts over and anything can happen. Sure the way players are playing can be of concern, but I'm not sure that it is here. We played well last night and likely should have won. One idiotic call put us shorthanded and the Flames capitalized on that.

But one of the reasons I'm NOT in a state of panic is because the team has had some push back vs being push overs in the physicality end of things and other teams are aware of that. So I feel that they have the right mindset in preparing for the playoffs. We've been at the receiving end of bad (or non) calls and are likely not shellshocked by them anymore...it's become the norm so shouldn't be too much of a factor.

I'll leave this open as I'm sure there are people concerned about our recent record who need to express that...I'm not one of them however. I'll save my worry for if/when it really counts.

OP is struggling with basic math. It makes a difference as to how many games you go back when you are spinning your drama.

We are 9-4-2 in the last 15 and 7-3-2 in the month of February. I don't think I'm going to panic yet. Sorry to not join you as you jump off the wagon.

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

Barely .500.

This team isn't playing hard every night, and eventually it'll catch up with them. I think they need to get their crap together in the next 3 games. If they don't, then it's time to panic

Not a chance, would any GM in the league make such a bone headed trade? You need to stop making trade proposals.... Oh wait, sorry that was a trade?

You meant to say that 0.650 hockey is "barely" 0.500, right?

Yes but we also chucked in a half decent D in Sulzer and took a complete no mark called Gragnani off their payroll.
That said I still think Kassian will eventually turn good for us..........he's only 22.

After beating LA, everyone was on a high and now, one night later, ridiculous travel, rested Calgary, depleted team with injury and you are talking panic?

The regular season is a trial run for the playoffs. Especially with a 48 game short season. So, even if they Canucks slide in the last playoff spot, they are still in the playoffs and a possiible Stanley Cup contender.

Panic would be Chicago and Boston. Can they really keep this high tempo up all the way to the end. I don't think so!

Afterall, there are other message boards. Plenty of room on the internets to 'chill out.'


Meanwhile, there's been a reason (or two or three) to be concerned about the Canucks all season long.

There may be room for improvement, but no need to panic buddy hahah... 11-6-4.. c'mon.

That being said, firing AV should always be a strong consideration regardless of our streak / record..

Debs comment deserves a face palm. Real Canuck fans panic when they know there is nothing good coming our way. This season is a right off I hope We do miss the playoffs

What is going on with Keith Ballard? Alberts and Barker, with Bieksa on the sidelines. We could use his experience and calmness back there on defence. Anyone have any idea what is going on here?
