Was it just me or was AV laughing at his players on the bench after the first Wild goal 20 seconds in? If that's the case he's gotta go , that's crap for a coach to act like that. I would have been frickin pissed off and totally yelling at my d@mn team!

don't worry, after Tuesday we could be out a playoff spot. We can then hopefully draft a couple more Swedes and add acouple more American's from Florida and really go into the tank. We do not like skikked Canadian leader, AKA CoHo

how many times has lou let in 8 goals in his career, 7 or more in the playoffs

how many times has schnieder done that?

end of story

if your sad argument is schnieder didnt give the team a chance to win you weren't watching the game. you weren't watching how lou gave chicago 3 games in 2011 and gave the series to boston and la

take your blinders off and your lou soother out of your mouth


Come on!

You can't compare Luo's numbers with Schneiders. What has he played like 50 games?

Luo did not give Chicago 3 games but going by your logic he also took 4 away from them.

How many times has Schnedier won a playoff series? What's his record? 1-3? How many seasons has he played the vast majority of games? Has his play gotten better or worse since this season came around and he was thought of as the starter? How many times has he played 50+ games in a season? How was Schenider in that Chicago series? Oh that's right you forgot that Schneider coughed up the puck twice and then got beaten in a penalty shot and hurt himself in game 6. That would be 2 games to Chicago then for Luongo.

you seriously have the weakest arguments i have ever seen in my life and you act like you know what you're talking about it's hilarious


buddy put some skates on, learn to play hockey and you'd KNOW for a fact, fundamentally Schnieder is a better goalie

I have stated why on many posts throughout this site. Look it up.

Look you love Lou, great, you're a fan. I like Lou as well, but doesn't change the fact Schnieder is younger, cheaper and better.

If you'd ever played the game, you'd get that. Most people who have played the game at a high level understand that.

Those who simply have sat in the stands dont.

Why don't we try David Booth with the Sedins? He's a power forward who's not afraid to go to the net, he's got a lot of speed, and it might be able to get him going a bit (as far as scoring goals go).

Sedin - Sedin - Booth
Burrows - Raymond - Hansen
Higgins - Lapierre - Kassian

schneider let in a few goals, but he also made some really critical saves to try to give his team a chance to tie the game.

GOALTENDING IS THE LAST THING WE SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT RIGHT NOW!!!

but don't worry "Luongo Lovers" or whatever some of you would like to be called, luongo will most likely get the next game anyways, so please spare us the schneider sucks omg, luongo is much better posts to yourselves.

i would like to talk about overall team effort.....which was nowhere to be found for 50 min.

The Canucks were just scrambling all over the place the whole game. And not in a good way.

Everything looked pretty sloppy. The PP is horrible right now.

We've got to take Edler off the 1st unit and replace him with someone who will actually give Garrison a chance to let it rip.

Where's the urgency? We've got the talent but what the hell is going on off ice to make the Canucks look so lost?

oh I see you're a guy who played in the minors and thinks that makes you an expert lol.

if he's fundamentally better why are his numbers worse across the board? make excuses about the team playing bad all you want Luongo has the exact same team playing in front of him when he plays

playing Junior B doesn't make you a pro or an expert get your head out of your ass

Looks like the players have stopped playing for coach V.

Definitely possible. Apparently the Canucks were doing push-ups in practice, when screwing up on PP. It might be a sign that AV may be losing his mojo a little bit.

Our players are neither blind, nor stupid. AV is very stubborn in his ways and favors his protégées (of which some are not stellar by any stretch, e.g. Edler). Some contracts are probably creating some tension in the room, in spite of everyone obeying to the "code of silence". The goalie situation is stressful. The Malhotra situation might have been a little disruptive too.

IMHO, we need a "2012 LA" solution here. If MG is unwilling to shake things up, then he has to go too. Used to be a huge fan of MG, but not anymore after looking at the team we have (and its results) vs. cap spent, compared to the main contenders in the West (CHI, ANA, LAK). Which leads me to the guts of the problem - Canucks Ownership. Unfortunately, I believe that the problem runs that deep - the owners have become too complacent and seem happy with the uninterrupted sellout streak at Rogers. So if we're lucky and they wake up, don't dismiss the possibility of something major coming down in the following weeks.

Please don't counter this after a win or two in the next games (if we're lucky). I am thinking "Stanley Cup" here. Sadly, at this particular moment in time, I think we have a "fat" 0-chance to win it this year.

Canucks tied for 19th in wins. Thankfully we play in a weak division or we could easily be 27th or worse.

This is the only argument that you've made that is accurate.

The rest is just garbage. People might start to take you seriously if you stopped belittling them.

Agreed, its unbelievable how stupid some people are even suggesting goaltending was the issue tonight.

But their argument is ooh all you schnieder lovers would rail on Lou!

Actually no, most of the people on here want the canucks to win regardless of who is in net. And when the team stinks out the joint as the did in detroit, here tonight, 'so called schnieder lovers' weren't saying Oh lou cost us the game.

But it makes them feel better as you say

I think these idiots would rather the canucks lose with schnieder in net from some sort of adolescent, imbelicic vegeful attitude that their hero is not number 1 anymore.

It shows the level of maturity, intelligence, and definitely a lack of knowledge of hockey.

well said

I think the only way that this team will wake up is a big trade. Firing Newell Brown would be a good start.

As much as fans want to simplify the problems with this team by making it a Lou vs Schneids issue that isn't even close. Goaltending is not the issue! Get real people. Instead of looking for that one player that rides to the rescue IMO the issue is deeper.

The Twins dominate the thinking surrounding this whole team. From the players who play with them to the type of offensive strategy used down thru the roster. What d-man is best at making that breakout pass. I am not suggesting that two very talented players should not be highly regarded. My question is whether they have been coached to the benefit of the primary goal of winning a CUP. Was it a better coaching decision to split them up on different lines and reunite them for the PP?

Is the simplier issue more that this team has not had a 2nd line in how many seasons? I have never liked a 'run & gun' or a 'puck possession' game but admit that when it was working I loved it. My issue has always been CUP quality defences which tend to shut them down. Sometimes the north/south game is what works. Van hasn't had a shutdown game since Manny in 2011. I have to blame coaching for this.

After all this I also acknowledge, as an org, Van has been challenged for decades. No talent depth and those they had were rushed into the NHL.

Overrated Gillis made this team way worse from the team that went to the finals.

Where's Salo, Erhoff, Torres, Hodgson, Volpatti.

Why is Booth and his 4+ mil cap hit still on this team!?
What a joke signing overrated Garrison to a LONG TERM deal with NTC but wont give Salo, Erhoff, Torres a bit of raise or extra year.

What is with this bandwagon talk?! Are people climbing on the bandwagon that is hurtling out of control down the ravine?

People usually jump on the bandwagon of winners, not teams playing poorly and losing.
