Man we could probably make some money right now - Vancouver is still higher in the standings than a lot of Western teams - if we start betting against them now while the odds are in favor of Vancouver we definitely win some dough.

If this team keeps playing like this I hope to see some empty seats at Rogers soon. Maybe the sellout streak ending will push ownership to make a move.

He is also the only Canuck goalie who never gets the blame for a loss

Looks like the players have stopped playing for coach V.


Looks like the players have stopped playing for each other and the fans...that's what makes me mad.

<br />
Luongo needs to start next game. Schneider hasnt been playing good enough to bail his team out<br />


that's been the problem from gm 1. The reason they won any gms was because both Lui and Cory were stealing gms. Now that they cooled off, all the deficiencies come out.

while bxa and kes are huge part of the team, there is no reason for edler hamhuis, or the twins to nit be playing better. They have to carry the team, otherwise it's just hoping for the goalie to steal a gm.

Worried. Team is playing with 0 spark. Gillis NEEDS to make a move.

Halfway through the season and the team has yet to play a more then one or two 60 minute games.

Fire AV, trade Schneider, get a D-man who can play.

And MG needs a slap in the face for not resigning Salo. This D-core is absolutely HORRENDOUS and has been all season.

I am so beyond annoyed at this team. Their effort is non-existent and the Twins are the only players who can generate ANYTHING.

To the people who bashed Luongo for the 2011 Finals,

This week has proved something. Doesn't matter who's in net if the team can't score.

I can't wait to hear AV tell us we ran into a good team, and have to give them credit

Henrik will say every team is a good team, and we just didn't get the bounces

etc etc..

how about a chair being thrown across a room now

only players who showed so heart tonight, Burr, Tostito, Kassian, Higgins, Tanev

Not good enough for a divisional rivalry, first place and potentially being dropped out of the playoffs.

it was a playoff game, and we played like we did last playoffs...like we don't care

Here's the thing, this team has played average all season, but it's only now that our goaltending has failed to mask it.

This is not a goaltending issue, don't pretend it is.

There are too many players that are not being put in positions to succeed. This team looks lost because they have no direction from their coach. Nobody knows their roles, and it's showing.

IMO, we have the players to play with drive, aggressiveness, passion, and heart.......Kassian, Burrows, Higgins, Sestito, Alberts. We should be pounding the snot out of our competition.......but our team plays hockey like a chess game.

Its not Schneiders fault the team in front of him sucks, but Luongo will start tomorrow anyways. This team plays with no passion and no sense of urgency. It is long overdo for a coaching change as AV has obviously lost the team as well as a couple of big trades to try and jumpstart the team. I think Booth needs to go, as much as I like him he doesn't seem to fit in and I dont think trading him will have a negative affect on team chemistry. Any move MG can make other then swapping around 4th liners should be good as he has sat on his hands for far to long and I dont know if there are no trades out there or if he is to scared to make them but he needs to figure it out. The easy answer is to fire AV then go from there.

Schneider suxs... he only did well playing behind Lou... if he thinks he is # 1 he can go somewhere else then.

MG, get on the phone, time for huge changes, not some minor tinkering.

Either find a way to pry this window open or shoot it in the head and rebuild. This lack of effort is appalling.

Now that Luongo can't be blamed for everything it's so evident the goalies/ Twins have carried AV for so long. This team is mediocre at best if those 4 guys aren't playing their best.

So much for the lip service Hank served up about "urgency" and "desperation". Another game mailed in by most of the lineup.

Ice capades disguising as our power play...the Sedins should just as well compete in ice dancing, the way they are playing entirely on the perimeter.

At least the PK looked decent tonight...Schneider outplayed by Backstrom, though we made it easy on Backstrom with all the shots from the perimeter.

The lack of competitive level and constant bumbling that is Alexander Edler has got to stop...it's official -- we are a bunch of pretenders who can't even do a decent job of disguising ourselves as contenders.


Are you serious the Sedins were the only ones that came to play as usual. Also the powerplay was by far our worst aspect of the game again.

Does this season feel eerily similar to the 05-06 to anyone?

Huge expectations turn into major floppage. I'm convinced if we fired Crawford that spring or traded for Luongo that spring (before doing BOTH in the summer) we would've turned our season around.

I swear a Therrien/Bylsma coaching change in this situation would have the same effect. While you're at it Mike, TRADE A GOALIE TOO.

He doesn't deserve the blame, he played fine.

Luongo should get the start next game though and I bet he will just to switch things up.

Yup! What have they got now...7 goals in their last 5 games, or soemething like that? It's not about goalies.

THey play like they have no plan, no system and not faith. Maybe that's true.
