We don't have Kesler.

Our 2nd line is Booth Lapierre Kassian

Other teams with the same amount of points as us; Detroit and Pittsburg

Their 2nd lines are

Franzen-Zetterberg-Bertuzzi

Kennedy-Malkin-Neal

So wise Canucks fans why should we have MORE points than these two teams, with no Kesler?

Because our defense and depth in goaltending should make us perennial contenders even with 14 million dollars of salary injured?

You're truly moronic to think we should be even higher in the standings with a 1/4 of our salary out for large chunks of the year.


It's not like we're not competing either we had 40 shots against SJ.


Canucks fans are such bandwagoners it hurts.

**RETIRED...**

"Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens & the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We (Allah) parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (Qur'an 21:30)

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

I think if the Canucks add a top six sniper at the deadline, then most teams should fear facing the Canucks in the playoffs. I very much like this team and hope Gillis can find the missing piece to put them over the top. Kesler does need to get healthy however!

Of course if one were to play Devils' Advocate: We had Kesler for seven games (who had 5 points) and the team went 2-3-2 in that span.

If you're playing, you're just as accountable as everyone else on the ice. Not to mention his diving is just embarrassing.

If your team strategy depends on a player who has been injured for most of the last two years, then it's ot a very good strategy. That would be like if the bruins had been counting on Marc savard to lead them to the cup in 2011.

There's actually a "supportive but rational" subset of fans in the middle. From what I've seen, it's only about 1% of the fanbase, however.

Two losses in a row might be enough to send these posers spiraling down the realization they always thought the Canucks were stupid in the first place… but when they sweep the first round of the playoffs, they've already started planning their Stanley Cup party.

No, we have two types of fans: jaded and deluded. The delusional ones always think we are one step away from the cup. Most of them haven't been fans very long.

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

If you're playing you're healthy. Don't care if he's b!%ching about his shoulder, foot, hip or whatever other body parts were broken. Fact is IF YOU ARE PLAYING YOU ARE HELD JUST AS ACCOUNTABLE AS EVERYONE ELSE. If he was soooo badly injured he shouldn't have been playing. Clearly he was healthy enough to play one of the most physical sports in the world.

The delusional fans wouldn't trade any of the "core" players to improve the team. Even if it was Kesler for Stamkos.

Interesting philosophy. So I guess the games that Kes played this year...he didn't actually have a fractured foot.

Okay so whenever Kesler plays like a 12 year old school girl and he comes out and says he's playing with a ruptured testicle the next day, we should all just give him a free pass. Okay buddy, gotcha.
