Our 4th line sure looked great leading up to Motte’s goal.

When Sutter returns we'll be deeper down the middle too.

Considering that Green has squeaked out every last drop of this team to get a goals and have the team commit to battling in all three zones...and yet defense is constantly the problem + special teams.  Pretty sure he won't be given the shaft compared to the men in charge of those departments...Nolan Baumgartner and Newell Brown.  The team has bought into Green's system...but its Baumer and Brown's job to help execute that plan in those departments and have failed miserably the past season and its showing again this year.

right

and you think nolan has sufficient talent to work with ?

what is he supposed to do?

really? this d group sucks

it sucked last season

and the year before

but we keep them all together

and keep putting them out there

but yeah . it's on nolan

 

you realize green's system is different then willie's?

it is higher risk

and exposes the d more

and they are exposed

but still the same low quality players

so maybe green needs to change the system

or tell jb to get him some more talent to run it

 

and the pp did better last season

once vanek had input

maybe we gotta await his retirement

to get a qualified coach for the pp

Not good. Nepotism never ends well. That's a major problem with a coach choosing his staff. 

Yuuup agree I knew something wasn't going to go well. It was said too during the hiring that Travis Green was mentoring Nolan as a coach that was a key red flag but the Canucks still dated him.

"I think Goldy's gonna be better off for this. He's done a lot of work, we had a hard practice yesterday, he had some work today, some individual work in areas we want him to get better at. You're going to see Goldy back, he's gonna be fine. I'm not worried about him." - Green on Goldobin

Instead of keeping the calls even, how about they actually penalize the players actually breaking a rule. 

Blasphemy.  Parity is the holy grail of the NHL and game management the means to achieve it.

#40 was caught many times tonight not moving his feet.   I don't think that line is gonna stick.   need the high energy guy that wins the puck battles in the corners with those 2, to bad Motte didn't have soft hands

Yeh that's true! Boeser is not skating well. I am thinking this is going to be a lot tougher to win without any support for EP. Brock needs to just get some games under his belt, But will his confidence be done by then?

How was our goalie tonight?

Appears as if he got screwed again?

Lots of penalties and no run support, again.

 

Nilsson played good. Our PP couldn't get much going, and the chances we generated happened to be foiled more often than not.  

 

Back to back stupid pointless penalties by Edler and DZ were the turning point of the game.

....the last minute of the game, they were playing with some urgency....this is how every second of the PP needs to play...the PP needs to out work the PK

 

Play with urgency, out man the PK around the puck in order to retrieve it, then set up the shot with quick passing and movement...and crash the net. All this requires all the players to be moving.

Who cares about the penalty! How about the response? Where is the team toughness?

Seriously, this team is still acting like that?

 

Going to be awhile before I can stomach watching it still, I guess. 

Let me know when this franchise isn’t Cucknucks hockey anymore.

Greener seems to have the ability to give a player a kick in the arse without killing their confidence.  It's a valuable skill.

"It's a penalty. I don't think the guy is deliberately going in there to... Could it have been a major? I dunno, it's a tough call for the refs." - Green on hit on Virtanen

Green needs to show a backbone. This is embarrassing.

He's being checked tightly because people know who he is, that's just something he going to have to figure out. He had a few opportunities this eve, too bad none worked out.

Nolan isn't a good defensive coach. In fact, he's horrible. 

A slight reflection of his career on the ice, he was better than horrible.

They started to react. But stopped as soon as the ref told them too, Meanwhile Jake is laying on all fours!

Who trucked Jake?

Is it in the highlights? 

Pateryn. Gudbranson tried to get at him but the &^@#ing refs interfered.
