Why is it if a fan makes any type of constructive criticism or comment that they are deemed, NOT A FAN?  Yes, the Canucks are 7-3 in their last ten games but several of those games were won my Marky standing on his head, not by a good system or consistent game.  Everyone loves Edler and Myers but man they are slow.  Once they pinch or get beat at the opposition's blueline they are dead in the water.  And, they do that too many times during a game.  How many two on ones and three on ones did the Panthers have in last night's game?  If you don't have the speed (Hughes) then don't pinch.  Yes, it might be a more boring style but it is safer.  Green and his staff have to be able to see this when watching the film or do they?

A real fan? Not this again. Who decides what makes a fan real? Certainly some are prone to just tear every aspect of the team down after a loss, that being said, if the team isn’t playing well and they don’t look to be giving their full intent of capability, people can criticize that. 

sure we can all criticize , but I was talking about certain posters on here that are not just criticizing,

two losses and the team is a disaster? you really shouldn't be watching hockey if you feel that way. every team in the nhl wins and loses. it is a real fan who realizes that

You lose 9-2 and then the next game you play just a poorly instead of bouncing back. That is a huge cause for concern. Good teams bounce back. This team laid an egg twice. Demko made some big saves or it could have been 10-2.

And we may have bounced back, but an early gaffe by Hughes put us behind early. Funny how I see no complaints about him (not that I'm calling for it). He should have played the puck around the boards which was the safe play, but went up the middle, rookie mistake. Learn from it and move on. This is just part of the learning curve of a young group.

Sky ain't falling yet. Lose again to Buffalo and then we can start talking about the support for the sky to start crumbling.

I thought he played well.  One softy but when the team in front of you hangs you out to dry it was irrelevant.  It easily could've been another 9 goals against.  Especially the second period he made it respectable.  Career high in saves for a game says it all.

he did recover well, which is a great sign for a rookie goalie. But the team needed a brick wall performance in the 1st to regain some confidence. 

 

But onward and upward, I don't think the season ended in Florida.

Just outside of the wildcard spot. Just outside of leapfrogging Vegas and Edmonton for 2nd and 3rd in the division. With games in hand. Sky is falling.

One mistake doesn't equate to the entire team playing poorly for 60 mins.

The expectation prior to the season wasn't playoffs at all by seemingly everyone. People were still calling us to tank even up to our 7 game streak. We are honestly right where I personally believe we should be. Of course we want to win games and want to not look bad while losing, but we are not a top contender, so I don't see why the team is being crucified similarly as if we are one.

It puts the team behind and changes the outset of the game. The team was already down from the last game and a start like that doesn't help. It got the team to take more chances which led to odd man rushes because the players were struggling stringing passes and had troubles carrying the puck. Can blame the coaching and systems, but the players are just as at fault for poorly executing. Confidence is big for a young team.
