I still watch the highlights and keep up with news, and It's great we've found ways to win despite all the injuries, but the games themselves aren't that interesting to watch.

I don't go out of my way to catch games like I used to. That said, I'll watch if there isn't much else to do.

Same here. Seems I miss the good ones, and watch the bad ones.

Western hockey has been boring lately. A lot less goals than the east. I hate the defensive style most Western teams use.

I still watch them myself, but I can't say I blame you for not wanting to.

I felt like a chump last night in a Calgary bar cheering for a horrible effort from the Canucks. I want my beer money back.

When it comes to the canucks I guess Im a sucker for punishment cuz I still watch but I dont get excited like I used to.. its a mix of reasons between the canucks not being as good a team, the media coverage in this town is nauseating, the lockout totally pissed me off beyond belief, and lastly the officiating in this league is beyond terrible. All that = tough to stay excited..

Canucks are in the top 3 in terms of most boring hockey teams in the NHL now. Completely different than 2011 free flowing games

Can't blame you, seems most teams including the Canucks play about the same boring stick to that defensive system game.

Can it be there's to much parity in Bettman's NHL?

I used to go out of my way to watch the highlights on Sportsnet but not so much anymore since Don Taylor's hairline has been receding.

I always watch, however sometimes it's hard to keep my eyes on the garbage effort on the ice, YouTube and CDC etc are more entertaining:/

I'm still watching them all. I have to admit though, last night's game didn't have my full attention. I probably spent more time on CDC with the TV behind me then I did actually watching it.

The acid test come with the play-offs (assuming they make it, which seems likely to me ) but see how many games are sold out. Seems to me the "consecutive sells outs" is coming to and end. It won't take much to turn the Vcr fans off. This is not TO with a huge population pressing for tickets. I understand scalpers and corporate tickets are not doing well. I hear at games boxes for rent...some things happening folks and Mr. Aqualinni ain't going to be happy with it

I watch the games... they are up there with the predators in terms of excitement. For a fan, they are just frustrating, the decisions they make with the puck hitting etc

Spoken like a true Canucks fan. Only pay attention when the team is doing well. Fickle at it's finest. Keep up the good work. Go root for the Blackhawks bro.

Your not alone, nor does it make anyone a bandwagoner. I still watch every game but i find myself more and more getting turned off and flipping the channel back and fourth. Many ppl i talk to haven't been watching all the games like they used to or do the same thing.

There's just not alot of opptimism around this team. We've seen this same group of guys for quite sometime now, saw them fall short in the cup run and when you see the same damn holes in the lineup that saw them fall short kinda hard to believe things would be any different this time around. The team is too damn predictable.

Been watching through thick and thin since the 70's, I think what makes them hard to watch since the SCF, is how far they've fallen in compete level in such a short time, and the fact that the window to get another crack at it has almost slammed shut.

I put it on in the background and play videogames on another TV or sit on the internet. Games are either boring or we get blown out, it seems.

I still watch every game that I can, but there are times when I get drowsy or my attention isn't fully there.

Being a fan of other player's on other teams and watching their growth helps grind through the dog days as well.
