We need a new coach, new captain, and possibly a new GM.


This, wish we could trade the twins for some other gritty first liners.

The lack of accountability on this team is now at staggering levels. The leadership seems to think that being "right there" is down 2-0 in the game, and that suddenly being unable to cope with the opposition when they find a new gear is acceptable. Well, guess what, Hank? Its not. It hasn't been all season. It hasn't been since 2011.

I'm seriously done with this group of players who can do nothing but talk the talk, yet can't back it up on the ice anymore. This is not an "elite team". This is a team of chokers and wannabes that, outside of one year when it seemingly all came together, can't compete when called upon. Yeah, I'm getting emotional... because I've poured my heart into this franchise for years while they play without any in the playoffs.

Gut it. Rebuild it. Be gone, Gillis, and take the gum-chewing poker face with you, AV. Get some real leadership on the ice, get some talent, and get a coach that can realize, use, mold, and refine that talent into something worthy of their positions.

This team is a joke.

Kinda pisses me off how Henrik brushes it off as no big deal. Just like Jeff Paterson the other night I remember when the Ducks cleaned their clock and he basically dismissed it as no big deal.

It's not necessarily because the Sharks want it more, but they're just a better team than we are..

A WHL team could be a "better team" than the Canucks if they were allowed to hook, slash and crosscheck but the Canucks weren't.

Another tough loss but I'm thankful for what the Sedins, Luongo, Kesler, Malhotra, the coaching staff, and the rest of the team have done in past years. It sure was good when it lasted and we were the envy of the league.

Good or bad, I'm STILL a fan of the Vancouver Canucks and I'm damn proud of it.

Lets close this chapter and here's to a new chapter!

:canucks:

Here here. Thanks to all those guys! Here's to a new beginning!

Luongo as always, very supportive of Schneider. Re game 4 "Its his (Cory's) team. Whatever happens ill be ready" #canucks

Luongo doesn't deserve this


Sigh.. sad isn't it?

The only solace I have is witnessing Lu leave it out on the ice for this team during these playoffs.. he had a couple softies as per the usual, but when your team can't score any goals and the defense is dead to rights there is only so much you can do as a goalie.

What a horrible fate its come to for him.. at least he's stayed professional through it all, but man I wouldn't want to be in that dressing room tonight.

Please, Canucks, don't bother showing up for game four. Put me out of my misery...btw, anyone interested in a pair of Canuck season tix for next season?


I promised to share some tickets with another season ticket holder and now I felt sorry for that decision... It's not I won't support this team anymore. It's just I really don't want to put the money in and let NHL keep treating us like shxt with those pathetic ref. Our ticket is more than 3 times more expensive than those California teams and NHL just don't care. I'd rather donate my money to red cross...

Henrik needs to grab his balls and boldly predict "we'll take this series in 7". I'd have respect for him even if they don't win, just show some manly leadership instead of hashing lame-ass excuses.

Haha I even called it down to a goalie pull... AV reeks of desperation. The team is so emotionally predictable and useless offensivley. Not to mention that even the refs do not like our team and character...

How's that Kassian for hodgson deal feel lately....

Only silver lining is a new core next year and coaching (maybe a new GM)

I love the Canucks, but this is a wake up call, changes need to be mad. Gillis had me as a believer at first, but his record speaks for itself. All he has done for us is take in failed projects, and trade away young players who haven't been given a chance. He has supplied this team with only 3 good players in Hamhuis, Higgins and Lapierre. He brings in the likes of Ballard and Booth, two guys who did nothing to help Florida become a good team. We need to bring in players that have a history of winning. Not to mention this Luongo situation has come to the worse possible conclusion, a goalie controversy to end the year.

Now onto AV, his time is up. He lead us to the cup and I respect him for that, but no results since has to mean he is getting the axe. We struggle in each aspect of the game, and that just isn't acceptable.

I have been spoiled with the Canucks putting out good teams on the since I became a huge fan, so i guess we have to accept that it is time to start over. If I was the Canucks I would do what San Jose has done, Get rid of some valuable talent on the decline of their career and bring in some youth without totally dismembering the team, at least for next year, Next year is our final chance for the next long while; I wouldn't go all in next year, just save the complete overhaul player wise for next offseason.


Pretty much this. The whole goalie debacle was a distraction. Flip flopping on Luongo after signing him to a huge contract was a very bad move. I don't care if CS is/was better he should have been the one on the block plain and simple. Now there's not really any way we can keep Luongo after all the trade drama.

Seems like we tried to change this teams formula after getting beat by Boston in the finals. That didn't work out and now the team seems to lack cohesion. I have to put this failure on management for making the wrong decisions and there should be an acknowledgement by them of this. Only then can we move on and get things heading in a proper direction.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

also as crappy as Schneider played he needs to start next game whether people like it or not if Luongo gets a free ride throughout the years of his games being lit up Schneider should get the same treatment


Are you kidding me. He takes more crap from fans than any other player in the league.

a new GM usually gets a new coach.

unless you are MG.



the only way i see AV being dumb enough to come back in game 4 with schneider is if he is thinking that the future is with schneider next year regardless of the series and that AV is so stupid that he believes that he will still have a job here to be around to be coaching schneider next year.

Which GM in their right mind would want to trade for our mentally unstable bunch of under achievers? I would have rather miss the playoffs than witness this debacle they are playing out. I remember Deniro and I having an argument about how one guy could change the dynamic of this team. And that guy was Kesler. Hell we got 2 new guys after the trade deadline and we aren't any better.

Don't trade the twins, don't fire the GM. Fire the coach, and if we fail miserably again next year then MG's job is in jeopardy.

Yeah, I'm getting emotional... because I've poured my heart into this franchise for years while they play without any in the playoffs.

Gut it. Rebuild it. Be gone, Gillis, and take the gum-chewing poker face with you, AV. Get some real leadership on the ice, get some talent, and get a coach that can realize, use, mold, and refine that talent into something worthy of their positions.

This team is a joke.


I feel the same way..
feels like when you have finally decided to leave an abusive relationship.


I'm done with this regime.

I want AV and Gillis gone..
zero accountability from AV's podium speech.

Gillis has brought bad karma on this team by all of his bonehead decisions ego.
