Surprise: Nothing, I knew this team would suck this year after no changes but negative changes were made after losing to the Kings

Disappointment: The whole damn Canucks organization. Gillis is too afraid to make a move, AV is no longer listened to or taken seriously by his players. He's a coach who can't even motivate his damn team. The guy has favourite players who, in reality, suck. This guy is a cancer to the Canucks organization and both Gillis and AV should be fired.

Is this some weird Twilight Zone thread? Hansen as the big surprise?? Dear God.
The guy skates around like he was forgotten from the 2010 Paralympic team. When he's not cross-checking refs, or getting suspended for clumsily elbowing people, the guy misses soooo many opportunities. Lots of speed, but very limited finishing. It's such a blow to the team. Like when we lose a bit fight - deflating. Why are opposition goalies looking like all-stars against us this year? Hansen's getting LOTS of scoring chances.
"I knew we had a great team. I told everyone if we play as a group, we can win it all. Everyone laughed. Now we're laughing."

How about how hank has the most points of any player since 08, or that we should be appreciative that the sedins always show up and at the very least keep us in the game. Yay twins

pleasant is obviously leading the division somehow...

dissapointment is how average our play has been.. our D are all over the place, nobody stepped up to replace kesler, and we're 4 points from being in 9th place.

Pleasant Surprise. Garrison's blister shot. Needs to get it on target more.



Biggest Disappointment. That they haven't used Lu as much lately and their power play.



All and all, they need a bit of a shake up to find some gelling.

Biggest pleasant surprise: Mayson Raymond (is he showcasing for a trade?)

Biggest dissappointment: AV laughing on the bench 24 seconds before Minny scores the opening goal.

AV may not have lost the room (debatable) but he sure has lost he fans with his "clown" action. I would like to see a more serious approach.

I spend half my money on Wine, Women and Song.
The other half I waste!
