Biggest fears going into the playoffs?

26 posts in this topic

Our D-Core. I'm afraid Edler won't show up and I know from years past this team can get extremely emotional and lose game purely because if it.

Health.

That is my only concern.

The assembled roster, when fully healthy, know how to play.

I would have to say health also... But the team not showing up to games and hoping Cory will save them like the whole season ..... I wanna see 60 minute efforts every game ! And SHOOT on the power play.

Ohhh and AV with dumb line Idea's...

Lack of scoring.

Our defence is pretty solid physically. Of course it'll get exposed, as it always seems to be against a good coaching system, but we have the best goalie tandem in the league to back them up so I doubt we'll lose due to poor defence/goals against.

Our forwards in the meanwhile have sucked some serious ass of late. 8 goals for in our last 5 games, this team has no real super star goal scorer and just a lot of passers. Essentially, our only true snipers are Burrows, Higgins and Garrison. That is quite frankly not good enough. Daniel has as many goals as his brother, and Kesler has been missing the majority of his shots.

If we get pumped out of the playoffs, it'll be the same reason we were against Boston and L.A - a tough, physical defence with a red-hot goalie who will shut us down. We may win most goalie duels, but we won't even be able to score 1 or 2 goals against a good defence and good goalie the way we're going right now. Powerplay is a big reason for this too.

Health is my main concern going into the post season, the team is like a machine if one peice/part is missing the whole machine will break down lol. My second concern would be the defensive giveaways, I think if we can limit those and have a healthy roster we will be doing amazing things in the post season.

our offense has only scored 16 goals in our last 12 playoff games, if this doesn't change then goodnight sweet canucks in the first round again

Coaching and motivation. If the Canucks can play every game like they did against the Blackhawks, we can beat anyone.

AV. If he actually believes Ebbett belongs in the lineup during the playoffs, he's beyond help.

Health. Remember the Canucks have been the best team in the NHL over 82 games for the past 2 years. If they stay healthy they're going to peak at the right time.

Depleted D-core. We need Bieksa + Tanev back in the line up. Corrado + Alberts aren't going to take us far

Offence. We still haven't really seen 2-3 line rolling all at once. That scares me. The defense and goaltending has ben great for the most part of this season and almost unstoppable the last month or two so that is no concern. But we need to start to bury our chances, and most definitely have traffic in front of the net from game 1, not game 3-4 like last year....
