Woah..we gotta tuff guy here. :bored:

Why should I have faith again?


Exactly. You've got nothing good to say about the team. If you're so dissatisfied, then just leave and never come back. I'm sure nobody would miss your negativity.
If you ever said anything good about the team, then I'd understand your frustration but you're nothing but a bandwagoner that does nothing but complain over and over again.

its true half the people posting after a loss aren't here after a win its pathetic and your avatar proves how much faith you and everyone else have

Exactly. Thank you.

I miss Trevor Linden and the heart he showed in 1994. That's what this team needs.


Remember when we almost got Shane Doan

You do need a trading partner, but you have to give yourself the best chance for success... and you don't announce your #1 goalie who you've signed to a stupid-a$$ contract has lost his starting job, and then expect someone else to be dumb enough to clean-up your mistake. Milbury's not a GM anymore unfortunately. Gillis needs to own this debacle.


when did anyone say that other than the media and fans

Lets go for mackinnon , we need him for kesler. Fire AV for HC of the portland= Mike Johnston, at least he knows how to coach . Its all about dicipline and knowing you have to play a full 60 or you will not succeed.

What canucks should go for in the Draft.

1st Mackinnon. 2nd jordan subban 3rd Jc lipon. 4th bjorkstrand

sign to NHL entry Rutkowski and Willick.

Lu solid game gave them a chance to win, though probably should have had the 3rd goal, that goal is irelevant, Canucks only managed 1 goal.


Yeah, 24 goals against in his last 6 games. Big time solid.

Edler just got signed so only defenceman going is Ballard and maybe Hamhuis or Bieksa

Edler Garrison and Tanev are unmovable for the next year at least


Only Garrison and Hamhuis have no-trade clauses on the defence. The rest are fair game.

I miss the 2011 team, I think the biggest mistake was changing that lineup. I think the biggest factor in the loss in the finals was that we were just too banged up and just about every d man was hurt. MG shouldve stuck with that team. I mean that team was only 1 game away it's not like we got swept in the final.

I want everyone to take a look at this roster. I mean really look at it.

Is this a roster that should be challenging for a division title? It's no wonder we can only score one goal. Half the forward group are AHLers.

So before everyone goes and jumps all over the players, stop and think about it. These players are all probably looking at management too and thinking "a little help Gillis?"


Totally agree

Chasing the puck 7 out of 10 times after a face off will not win many games in this league.

Neither will scoring one goal

or generate 5 grade A scoring chances

or have 25 shots blocked

The Globe and Mail
July 23rd Mike Gillis talking about a Luongo trade, "“We’ve been given solid offers. Nothing we would do today. We’re going to continue the process with the teams that are interested.”

Pretty clear which horse they had chosen at that point.

Will be interesting to see what happens with Ballard now.

It's funny. I remember Mason Raymond doing the exact type of thing against Dustin Penner last year in the playoffs. Could say it sealed the fate of Vancouver's elimination.

But maybe those players just aren't durable enough to make it through the entire playoff grind (kesler, ehrhoff). I'll leave out hamhuis because I think that was just a freak injury.

Please be kidding? Tanev has been our best defensemen all season long. I don't know what you have missed about Tanev.


Tanev might be our best defenceman but that's just because they've all sucked to this point. It's true that he hardly does anything wrong but at the same time he's not really good at anything except his little first pass, which usually doesn't result in any offence anyways.

So who enjoyed Garrison on the PP? The guy couldn't hit the net. He definitely needs to work on his accuracy.

Luongo is a salary dump. To trade him away we will have to add a draft pick and ask for nothing. The only question is how high the pick


lol. what a fail...

Agreed.

While I do believe there is blame on AV (a lot, actually), Mike Gillis needs to be held accountable too. We can't keep going with this line-up.

More of the same. No goaltending.

For the first time in ages, I agree with AV. This team did play well tonight. I think they actually outchanced their opponent - which would mark the 1st time all season they outchanced their opponent in consecutive games. Oh looky, they lost both of them easily.

I thought this goalie tandem would be this teams best asset this year. Boy was I wrong. It's been their albatross. A black hole. The abyss. They both have welllllllll below league avg EV SV%. Hiller, Bishop, Bernier, Holtby, Garon, Reimer, Miller, Scrivens are a few of the "what the hell" goalies with better EV SV% than either Canucks goalie. No excuses. It's pathetic. The Canucks D have lowered the scoring chances against to a point it's well below league avg on most nights. Yet their goalies can't stop a beach ball.

Yes, this team needs to score more goals. No doubt about it. But no team is going to score 4 goals every night to win hockey games. Someone needs to sit down both goalies and let them know how much they make - and what's expected of them.


It's easy to blame the goaltenders, but Nashville game aside the Canucks are scoring 2 goals a game or less : not good enough.

It's nice they finally got a PP goal, but it was the only goal they scored tonight. Power play is still crap, and Vancouver didn't look very dangerous on many of their scoring 'chances'.

The Canucks look uninspired and lazy, and they say they are trying hard, but they aren't making anything happen.

Why don't players take any accountability on this team, I'm ???? tired of hearing post game interviews telling me we have a 'strong leadership core' if we had such a strong leadership core why the frack are we constantly being out shot blocked? I can't believe we already have 15 losses

I've been hoping that the Canucks would turn it around like they did in 08/09, but it's slowly starting to look like the under-performing team of 05/06.

In the end, just fire of AV. I've been wanting this guy fired for quite a while now.
