We'll make the playoffs.
Kes will return.
(Booth will not.)
Then we will beat the unmentionables out of everything that stands in our way, and...
Win the Cup.

Even if we miss the playoffs they'd probably just miss in like the 9-10th spot of the west and not even get a top 10 pick.


this year is different. Every team that misses the playoffs has a chance at the number one overall pick

Draft picks are not a garantee of a great player even if taken first overall....The Canucks lack chemistry and coaching. When AV realizes him not putting Garrison on the PP and putting an injured Edler in the lineup is not such a good thing, then the canucks can move forward as a team.

Double shifting Hansen more might help this team too --- as I said coaching is the weakest part of this team.

Agree 100% please give us a better coach the team dont want to play for AV I think Newell wants to get fired to get away from him also!

so you are saying its not realistic for a mediocre regular season team to go far in the playoffs.


i'm saying it's not realistic for THIS team to go far in the playoffs.

really?
what kind of fan would wish that?


Any fan with a brain that can see that this team is going nowhere, and that it needs to be rebuilt from the ground up. This group will never see the cup nor even get a sniff if they are still playing here. This team lost any chance at the cup when they traded away their young players and drafts for nothing useful, and when they signed Luongo to that ridiculous contract that runs till hell freezes over.

Stanley cup>high draft pick. It's a deep draft good players for playoff teams this year. This team healthy is a top 5 in the league. The boys match up well against every team but Detroit. lets hope we can avoid them in the playoffs and go on to win a Stanley cup!

The Canucks are still in the top 8 in the conference and are only 2 points out of first in their division. Stop being such so negative and pathetic.

As long as we can compete, we have a chance. If we are gonna have a rut, it best be during the season and not in the playoffs.

You would think by the way you have responded, we are the Flames

Kes is still trying too hard when he gets back on the ice. The team itself has even admitted that they've tried to fix the PP in practice but are starting to think it's just time to forget about it. They've been trying too hard and it's getting in the way of letting things click naturally.

I still think we need a change in coaching. I'm not against AV as a person or a coach, I simply think he needs to go. Perhaps AV has been with this team too long. AV is coaching our problems from inside...but perhaps what we need right now is someone who has been in the position of coaching AGAINST our team to really bring this team around the bend.

Just wondering if any new information has been posted regarding Kesler's recovery and return (hopefully soon)?


Did you not see him in the pressbox tonight with crutches beside him? Kind of an indicator his return won't be soon.

did you not see the timestamp on the post next to the title? Kind of an indicator that this was posted before the game last night.

Kesler should be back before playoffs. Our last game is late april, and he should definitely be healed by then. Only took me 6 weeks for a type 2 radial fracture.

well if it only took you six weeks, mortals like kes should only need a week or two more than that? i had a sliver once that only took 3 days to heal... so by that math, he should be back skating this week

I saw Kesler on West Broadway, the day we lost to Detroit (March 16?); I was in the liquor store. I think he was with a woman and either a young man or boy. He was dressed suit and tie, no major braces or crutches. He also held the door for the other two and walked into Tojo's.

Hopefully this is a good sign.


He had crutches with him at the Wild game, last night. He was watching from the press box.

this is the end of an era guys, if totally healthy we are a very competitive team, but as you can see, with one key injury, we are just an average team battling for a spot between 3 and 11
Losing Hodgson hurt us because we need centers badly. Not sure why Gillis traded Hodgson when he knew Kesler was very very injured, especially when he could not get a centre back...

If Kesler returns to form...
If we get a good 3C
If our D stays/gets healthy-edler, bieksa hamhuis
If our D plays close to their potential
If our goaltending plays close to their potential then...

we are a contender, so far none of these ifs are happening.

in 2011-2010 we had insane depth on the back end- remember we played 75% of the season without elder,
Hansen-Malhotra- Torres was a great 3rd line...Malhotra probably the best 3C we've had
Lappy played above his usual level in the playoffs

edler, erhoff, sedins, kesler and burrows had very special years that year,

I say, trade scheider for a good young C who has top line potential and then slot that guy in on the 2nd line. In a second trade get a 3C, Goc, Matthias or someone among that ilk.

we need to get a good young center back for Schneider, we need to get younger and that is our area of greatest weakness.

I really liked MG, thought he was the best GM we have had but the Ballard trade, the Hodgson trade and the lack of a goalie trade have all significantly hurt this team. He was a maestro in that Erhoff trade- but then let our best PP QB in hx go- yes he got a bick contract offer elsewhere, but Gillis was offering Bieksa money...that is not fair to the best offensive d man this franchise has had. Salo and Mitchell- he low balled....

Sad to say it, but he messed us up badly.

Not as bleak as you make it out, good sir, if we can turn the corner and get some chemistry going, as well as some consistency. I'm not saying recent results are encouraging, but the fact is, the Canucks are under-achieving at the moment. If they manage to perform to potential, they'll make the playoffs...if they reach above it, like the Kings did last year, they can still go far.

It's unfortunate but I'm afraid even when we get him back, that he will never be the kesler we have learned to love. This guy was a beast, and now he is a "salo" type glass structure, fracturing and breaking anywhere possible.

No. When you take a slap shot off the foot, there's a good chance you'll get hurt.

It's not like he made an impact when he was healthy.

First you diss Booth and say he never makes an impact, now you're on Kes' case. Which games do you watch?
