its true some idiots will hate but those are the ones who are probably bandwagon fans... Human thought has physical implications..

Idiots here is a test to prove it to you:

Two glasses of water were put in a busy place with ppl walking by one with love written on the bottle the other with hate. After some time they analysed the water crystals to find startling results..

Many diff tests were done. If you google gann theory many ppl apply it to financial markets and I have too successfully. You can pinpoint market turning points with likely points of bull bear saturation based on thought.. greed fear etc.

Anyways when u think positive bad things are less likely to happen so think about a comeback and it has a slightly better chance at happening. Might be negligble. Puts a whole new meaning to its thought that counts..


It's true, I remember watching a video on that. People on here are taking me way too literal, I'm not preaching this. It takes little effort and it's been proven that our thoughts give off energy, so why the hell not right?

Nothing we think will have an effect on what they do. Only they can do that. Once we get swept out, the changes will hopefully start beginning with long overdue firing of AV.

All the people bashing this thread are idiots. Do you think the kid who's parents continually put him down telling him he'll never amount to anything, he's not good enough, give up etc. ever amounts to anything? Constant negativity gets you down. This team plays to win for us the fans as much as they do themselves. Why would they want to win for a bunch of over priviliged brats who think that because they've been watching hockey for 5 years their team deserves a cup?

Look at the last 7 teams to win the cup. Do you think these teams had half the negativity the Canucks have?

Hurricanes - no one expected them to be there, how could you be furious if they lost
Ducks - smaller fan base and not the favourites
Wings - exception, however franchise has won cups, fanbase would survive with a loss
Penguins - 10 years of nothing hockey then a quick turnaround with Sid and Gino
Blackhawks - Similar to Penguins, even if they lose your core of superstars is still there
Bruins - Kind of like the wings and at the same time not the favourites
Kings - See Hurricanes

Compared to the Canucks
Core has been here 5-10 years now? Get to the final once in that time. Lots of time for negativity and anger to feaster. The type of negativity that I don't see existing to anywhere near the same extent in the above teams.

because that's there JOB? they get paid millions of dollars to go play hockey and win the cup. the fans didn't hire them, they're grown men who have a job to perform, they should careless what people think of them. and if you think everyone sitting in a corner thinking happy loopy thoughts about the team is gonna somehow materialize, then reality and the real world is gonna hit you hard

When the Hawks came back from 3-0 to take it to game 7, I heard law of attraction was in Chicago. Then I saw dual rainbows that day before the game and thought to myself rainbows will win game 7 for the Canucks... I was right, all I can say is look to the skies tomorrow people, look to the skies.

Sorry but so much fail in your post.

Players don't get paid for the playoffs and they don't get paid to win the Stanley Cup. They get paid for the regular season. So sorry I hit a personal note with my comment about immature fans thinking they deserve something in life for nothing; best of luck in the real world.

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.

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

I remember seeing the movie called "The Secret" thinking it was the biggest load of bogus I've ever seen. Slowly it's starting to make somewhat sense to me. In 2011, we KNEW our Canucks would go far, but ever since then we've kind of fallen off the boat. The law of attraction states that our thoughts create an energy, and a possible shift in the outcomes of our daily lives. It's hard to deny the negativity that's been going on since the 2011 cup run. The law of attraction also states that with enough belief, positive thought, confidence, and replaying that positive thought over and over in your mind comes reward.. So let's try it? I know how ridiculous and out-to-lunch I sound with this superstition, but it's worth a shot. Our luck is absolutely unbelievable at the moment.. So all I ask from here on out, once a negative Canuck-related thought enters the mind, immediately block it out with a positive one of our boys hoisting the cup. It'll be a miracle if it works, but that's exactly what we need right now. Seems legit. ;)


Only MIGHT work if you have any control on the outcome of the game (i.e. you're the players playing the game). Otherwise, all this will do is make you feel good.

I think Canucks have a good shot at coming back if they play to their potential. But please don't take credit for it if they do. Your positive thinking will have no effect on them (unless they players are reading this thread and decide to adjust their effort based on our level of belief!)

To prove to yourself, try using this energy on something that is completely out of your control and has a tiny chance of success, like winning a lottery. If you win a lottery, I'll join your cult!

Agreed. I was at game 1 and the atmosphere was terrible. Need soccer style fans chanting and singing the whole game... and specially non-stop after we score. That first goal should have been a confidence breaker for the sharks.

But aside from that, the random people watching the game at home and bars have 0 effect on the team, regardless of their "energy".

Barely allowed cheering in Rogers Arena, you have to be polite and wait until we kill a penalty, get it out of our zone, come up with a big save or score.

It doesn't seem like cheering for the sake of cheering is taken kindly in Vancouver.

I have a better idea. Lets blame everything all at once as the only reason the canucks are losing. Lets bash people who like to focus on the positive and have that element grow.... (complete sarcasm from me, but the reality of the board)

I agree with you. It's amazing how people will neglect to believe in the power of though and positive energy.

I believe this team can win, but it must be hard for the team to believe it can win when so many of their "supporters" don't support and believe that they can win.

:towel: It seems the white towel will grow to represent more than just giving up because of the reffing but also giving up to "the fans".

I'm afraid this team fell apart the day they started thinking that they could afford to lose to the lesser teams. Winning is a habit. There is a certain arrogance in the team, I would guess led by Bieksa that thinks they can turn it on when they like.

Just because we won 2 PT'S and got to the finals in 2011, it doesn't mean we scare anyone in the playoffs............we lose too many games and drop our intensity (leading to flat 2nd and 3rd periods) for this team to be considered scary.

Not playing set lines will be our downfall, because the only edge we had was our chemistry and systems. AV made a huge error in allowing injuries to force him into full scale line changes. That is why we are done, that and the lack of a hitting and checking 4th line.

Go and watch any of the playoff games so far and you will see crisp passing and well oiled transition. Comparing it to our feeble efforts so far is nothing short of embarrassing. We major in puck dumping.

Anyway I can't see the torture lasting much longer. AV knows it with his cranky interviews, he knows he at least is gone.

Bud we had all the same gung ho crap last year, it didn't work then and I don't see it working now. We have allowed this team to flounder for lack of reinforcement and we have sunk too low to surface again.

Is that what the bandwagon LA fans did last year? They just knew their #8 seeded Kings would win the Cup? I think this is a load personally. You want something, go get it. Don't sit around hoping for it. Don't the Canucks have some "out there" happy room to generate positive thoughts? How's that working out for them?

Do you even know how dumb this topic is...
So mind tricks and voodoo crap is gonna help the canucks win

No thanks, we don't need your woo-woo talk.

Its based on the fact that if you ask God for something and have zero doubt he will grant it for you. (assuming you ask according to his will)
Is its Gods willl the Canucks beat the Sharks? Of coarse it is.
Having zero doubt......thats the problem

So you're suggesting we daydream about impossibilities?


So let me get this straight: This idea is stupid, but playoff beards and wearing the right underwear totally help the team win.

Reality is, even if it does nothing, you lose nothing by trying it other than your own negativity.

No, when someone keeps trading assets for overpaid plugs you fire his asse
when he treats the week before the playoffs start like the preseason you fire HIS asse
when you talk nice to nice girls you get a nice girlfriend
when you act like an arrogant rock star you get a hot girlfriend, who will then cheat on you
thats how the Hockey Management and the Laws Of Attraction differ.

Constructive criticism that the team will never see? That's just giving off a negative vibe.
