Long time reader that finally decided to make the plunge and post! Just wanted to say hello and give my quick take on the Canucks and there chances this season.

The one thing I think alot of people on here (and fans in general) need to do is RELAX. This team is experienced and has some depth. They are going to have off nights...see first per of Saturday's game vs Oilers for example. IT HAPPENS PEOPLE!! The Canucks are human and make mistakes just like you or I. Obviously I recognize that this is their career and should come to every game and put forth a full effort. That being said, I don't think they are out there dogging it like some of you so clealy believe. I know sometimes its hard to imagine but most nights the oppostion wants to win the game as well and sometimes they deserve credit for stepping up their game.

As far as the team goes, injuries have played a big part but that's always going to happen. My take is that in order for the Canucks to be really successful they need to play to their strength which is their speed. I think quick neutral zone transition combined with a good first pass from our D will allow us to be at our best. There's very few teams in the West that can skate with us so if we continually force the issue I believe we'll have success.

Lastly a comment on Dale Weise... saw a thread on here yesterday asking if we really need him...read some mixed feelings on the subject but I will quickly share mine....Dale is definitely someone we need... While he may not have the point production, he brings some intangibles that you just can't teach. He's very good at getting the puck out of our zone along the wall...probably our best winger at it besides Sedin/burrows...he blocks shots, gets pucks deep, crashes into the corners and isnt afraid to get his nose dirty...while some people argued players like this are a dime a dozen that is totally false....most 3rd/4th line guys may have some of his intangibles but not all of them...trust me people he brings alot more to the table that most people think and a real knowledgable hockey fan would have seen his absense was very apparent against the Oilers.

Just my thoughts....

We all need to relax, and something about Dale Weise being a god or something. Thats all I got of it.

It is odd that so many seemingly illiterate people feel the need to go on a message board and then not read anything that is over 15 words long yet feel the need to comment on posts that they haven't read.

Too much to read is a clear sign of a weak mind, especially since it takes all of a minute to read that post.

I agree people need to relax, we haven't even reached the playoffs to see if we are in or out, but we are within mere points of a guaranteed spot. We could be in the basement, would that make you haters happy.

Try living through the slump periods where we didn't have a chance at getting to the playoffs, let alone considered a team to beat for the cup. Some of you fans don't understand there are 29 other teams tryinng to take the cup from us every year. It is the hardest trophy to win, and you all think we have the right to just win it because we have a bunch of the good pieces.

sheeeeeeesh.

If this teams' biggest strength is it's speed, they're in trouble. It's been slowing down for a couple years now.

Besides, in the playoffs speed seems to be easily negated by toughness and clogging up the entire ice. Speed's nice, but if it's forced to the outside, then what good is it?

I do realize it was slighly long winded but that's only becuase it was my first post....obviously I comprehend the fact that this doesn't draw the most intelligent crowd so I'll definitely keep it shorter....

And FYI...nothing in there about Dale Weise being a god...i realize he's a 615k player....just saying I think some of you may over look what he actually brings to the table

Being away for awhile and then coming back reminded me of how much of a downgrade this place is.

I'm ok with the team having a few off nights, problem is we're having too many of them. Even when we've win it seems like we've had to have a great game from our goaltender.

Assuming Kassian was meant to at least make our 2nd line this year, we're currently missing FOUR top 6 players, our top defensive player and faceoff man, a mobile defenseman worth our top prospect+1st, and a fourth liner. So thats 7/18 Skaters.

I'd say we're doing alright considering.

19-10-6 record, don't know why everyone is panicing. Like he said we are going to have off nights but we won 6 in a row without a 2nd line.

So let me get this straight, your first post is essentially telling people here to relax and your second is then calling some people less than intelligent? Well it looks like you'll fit in here just fine. Pot meet kettle...

Not quite accurate the SNA...my original post speaks more to the general fan base who come on here and freak out with the fire AV and MG threads etc...my second post referred to some people who openly admitted they were too lazy to read 3 whole paragraphs....nothing in there thats contradicting....
