What changes would you make if the Canucks get bounced out in the first round with mediocre/stellar goaltending from whoever and lacklustre offense? Management changes? Coaching changes? Trades? Re/Signings? Etc...

Me personally,

Fire MG and AV goes also
Trade Luongo for whatever we can get (regardless of who plays in net and if they even play stellar)
Trade Edler for a top 6 forward like say Ryan from the Ducks
Buy out Booth and Ballard
Sign Clowe, resign Roy

Would this topic be made if we won last game?


I think not.


Just relax.

Not enough unfortunately. Just hope for the best with who we got I guess (and draft wisely for gawd's sake).

First move would be to fire AV, not MG though. Only problem is there isn't many good candidates out there to replace him. Trade Luongo for some draft pick/prospect + decent roster player if possible. Finally let Raymond go, can't stand him. Trade Edler if he screws up in the playoffs again and try to acquire a puck moving PP QB. Try to get a 3rd line C and re-sign Roy.

I have my opinions if such the case happens, but this is just to early for this, wait until the playoffs are over. WAY TO EARLY.

Have AV dress as a giggling teletubby, which becomes our new mascot. Promote Fin to bench-boss. Better pressers.

Some of these I hope happens and some of them I expect to happen


Gone

Booth
Ballard
Luongo
Roy
AV
GMMG.
MayRay


I can see a trade involving Schneids rather than Luongo tho and I'd like to keep Roy.

If we're out in the first round that'd be tough to handle. Especially (I imagine anyways) for the "fans" that started asking these questions one game in to the playoffs. Imagine a world where Vancouver didn't get to game 7 of the SCF every year. If I were you, though thankfully I'm not, I'd probably support another team. The Tampa Bay Lightning are really lacking depth in the armchair GM position.

- AV gone, get a coach that can actually coach Kassian more appropriately so he can become the top 6 power forward we all know he can be
- Id hope for a Luongo + prospect for St Louis trade to happen, either way I'd like to see a playmaker to play with Kesler, he's just not making enough happen any more
- Roy prolly won't re-sign so we need to get another center, can't think of one off the top of my head but at least someone that can win a goddamn face off... I wouldn't mind if we have to trade Schroeder in order to get one
- get Gonchar to mentor Edler, at least for one year, show him how to direct more pucks towards the net and how to drive into the zone... Gonchar helped Karlsson immensely so no reason he can't help another Swede like Edler

Sedin Sedin Kassian
Burrows Kesler St Louis
Higgins 3C Hansen
Lappy - Weise - whoever that can play left Wong and is a tough dude, keep Sestito for another year maybe?
- extra forwards are Jensen, and maybe Gaunce depending on how he develops

Hamhuis Bieksa
Edler Gonchar
Garrison Tanev
Alberts Corrado

- Booth, Raymond, Ballard, Barker, Luongo, and especially Andrew f**king Ebbett are gone


Ok I will be first to admit I'm not an NHL coach, but this is at least the direction I'd like to see the team head towards

And yes this is a bit premature, because if we can somehow find it in us to play like how we played against Chicago then there's still a fighting chance... Otherwise, if we keep playing like we did on Wednesday, then we are pretty much done

There is a distinct cancer in the locker room that puts the entire team's compete level at an all-tim low, and I don't think AV's approach to "leaving his players be" is hands-on enough to identify it. I think this is partially a result of management's MO.

Therefore, fire Gillis (but keep Gilman), fire AV and crew. Keep Melanson,

Bring in a new coach, and have a players meeting. At least try to pinpoint the negativity in the locker room, and shake it up.

Unfortunately for us fans, there is no way for us to tell where this cancer is coming from, and whether it's one or a couple players bringing the team down, or the entire core that has given up. When you look at the players who compete on the ice, you can see who it is definitely NOT.

It became evident that a cancer was the problem as soon as Roy showed up. He came in playing hard. A few games later, he got dragged down to the Canucks' level, and now he plays like the rest of the team does. I'm not very confident that Roy will even want to re-sign here after seeing how down in the dumps this team is.

No single acquisition is going to fix this team's crappy attitude. We need a new management and coaching staff, and we need a fairly significant shake-up to the core.

AND NO MORE STATUS QUO.

....and for Christs' sake, deal with the damned goalie situation...

I don't think it's just losing that stings, it has to do with HOW we are losing... Offense has been a big question mark all year long and it didn't get any better towards the end of the year and into the playoffs and if they continue the inability to score then of course there should be changes made

If we forechecked harder, made Niemi made at least as many spectacular saves as Luongo did in game 1 then I guarantee you the panic you see now will be a lot less... But that wasn't the case and unless we see some more aggressive style of playoff hockey from the boys the results will be the same in game 2

You're a dreamer. I"m sure those clubs will trade all those guys to the Canucks. You're not trading cards here.

So if Luongo's goaltending isn't strong enough, what's the logic of trading Schneider? Yes, he's easier to move. But unless the trade is Jake Allen, David Backes for Kesler and Schneider, I don't see us making a move like that.

Garrison has been great, Edler has been shaky at best. Keep him for next season though and see how he goes - 2 bad seasons in a row is good enough to ship him out of here. Ballard has to go too.

The biggest problem right now is our core, not our depth guys, but in all honesty everyone is struggling. The coaches need to be under scrutiny - AV last, first we should be pointing fingers at our horrible special teams coach Brown and defensive coach Bowness.
