the only thing we have to look forward to this playoffs is the potential of a Bruins Hawks SCF.
how good would that be?

You enjoy that, I'll watch baseball or something. Not watching either of those two NHL darlings win a cup again.

I was saying Lu-Urns...

We wont be for long at this rate..that position in the standings is extremely misleading.

The canucks have won games this season for sure, but in the last month thr canucks have been bottom 5 in the league for sure

Worst part we had a chance to gain ground on Minny. I would not want to face LA in the 1st round...I wouldn't like our chances that's for sure.

Right now, the Nucks would be out in 4 straight if they faced the Oilers. Edmonton is starting to gel and is actually winning their games with a team effort and offensive talent. Not like the nucks who play for 60 minutes hoping their goalie can get a shutout and give them a chance to win 1-0.

I love the Nucks but any team in the NHL is more exciting and talented to watch than the plumbers MG has put together and that includes the Sedins this year. They are doing nothing to lead this team.

Who cares, though? Will this team really do much in the playoffs with that 4th seed? I really couldn't give a crap if this team is still in a playoff spot. It does nothing to change what we're seeing on the ice.

Liked the effort since Higgy scored.

The Sedins need some highly skilled accomplices,especially on D.

A healthy Kes will change the PP and the 2nd line.

Still need a d man that is highly skilled for the PP.

I think this group will be blown up. The injuries are piling up. No puck luck. Poor coaching... I am very sad.

On the flip side they do remind me of the LA Kings from last year.

The coach cannot get out there and make Edler suck less. He can't give back the step that the Sedins have clearly lost nor can he put the puck in the net. While I'm not an AV fan this is a talent issue, not a coaching one.

The coach cannot make Edler suck less? Are you kidding me?
He can come up with a plan that takes into account for the Sedins losiing a step. He can pair them with a big power forward who proved chemistry with them in the past. He can take into account that Edler is not playing well and devise a way to exrtact the best performance from him. He can identify problems and adjust and compensate.
The players are accountable for their play. The coach is accountable for the results.
There is a reason a captain goes down with his ship while the crew jumps in the lifeboat; it is because the ship is his responsibility.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

Notice how San Jose's coach leans forward and engages his players? Looks like he's talking to them passionately?

What do we get on our bench? AV stands back and does nothing while Newell Brown draws something up. The guy who's currently responsible for the 29th ranked powerplay...

That's really the difference of why we're not seeing any passion.

This. All. Day. Long.

But you forgot that the LA Kings made a huge trade during that season to get Jeff Carter. Unless Gillis can pull out something like this, then the only thing that would be similar to the LA Kings of last year would be the failures and finishing 8th.

The good news is that Jensen looks like the real deal. Just loved the way he battles in front of the net. For a rookie playing his first game, I thought he was great. Give him some time to gain experience so that he can adjust to the NHL game tempo and this kid is going to a franchise player.

I've said some unflattering stuff about Edler's play after the first few games of the season. I'm sure Bieksa is walking wounded and wouldn't be playing if the team was healthy. Gotta wonder if the same isn't true for Edler.

What a waste of time watching that pathetic joke of a game. The coaching just isn't motivating this group. It's boring hockey we're watching here folks.

Yknow what? I would gladly take some boring hockey right now so long as it was backed by a team that took it seriously and showed some gumption.. they look timid, lacl confidence and are losing games in poor fashion and they dont even seem concerned..
