Why is it always OUR offence that evaporates?

Too much money in goaltending......can't believe people wonder why we don't have offense

Sedin-Sedin-Kesler seems like it's worth a shot to me. Kes has played right wing before and he had a ton of success with that when Sundin was centering him. I'd say Hank is a pretty good center.. and with Daniel on the other side it makes the line all the more lethal.

Our offence is predictable eg. Sedins and Burrows and AV is a defensive type coach.

Have to drive the net and go to the dirty areas. That is how you win in the playoffs. Too many of our players played this game without the necessary intensity to succeed. Their teammates who did show up should be p***** off and let everyone know it, so expect better execution in game 2. If they don't step it up, we will not be heading to the second round and will most likely be heading to the golf course before the Islanders get there.

True.

If you noticed, they piled 3-4 guys in front of their net when we got a sniff of it...that's why Raffi scored an own goal there. Hard to score without clearing out some rubbish first.

because no matter how good we are no matter how good our offense/defense/goaltending is, something always happens to this team in the playoffs that makes us not win the cup. People say there's no "curse" but I really don't know how else to explain what happens to this team come playoff time.

Because our offense is the Sedins, and the Sedins are what evaporates come playoff time.

Regular season stats:

Goals for Canuucks: 127

Goals for Sharks: 124

CBJ put for almost as many goals as the Sharks with Letsestu as their leading scorer. Quit making excuses for AV and the coaching staff like they have nothing to work with.

Why? Because we are PREDICTABLE....

I think it's because our team relies too much on the Sedin line to produce, and now as you can see they aren't producing. To me I think the Sedins need to keep their game simple and shoot. Last night we saw Daniel had two great chances to score but waited too long and by that time defenders came in the way. Also, we really need some secondary scoring from our 2nd and 3rd line. 4th line is the energy line - hits, fights etc. to get our team going when down.

Whoever is in charge of the powerplay should be fired immediately after the Canucks get eliminated.

MG goes and sign a PP specialist in Garrison and he doesn't even get a crack at the top PP unit.

I don't agree with AV's philosophy of adapting to the opposition. We are the favorites, they should adapt their game to ours.

It's because of AV's coaching style and because we havea nobody on the team who can play in pressure cooker ssituations and put the team on their back.

I don't think I have ever hated the statement "Defense wins championships" more than now.

I think the problem is, they are not taking the puck to the scoring areas. They seem content to just battle for the puck in the corners and pass around the perimeter. Eventually you do need to be more aggressive with the puck, challenge the defense, and take it to the slot. Ever since the Boston series the other team has boxed us out and we need to step up and challenge the box.

Also get the D pinching up again just like in 2011. Put pressure on the wingers so they can't get the puck out of the zone.
