Good effort by the team, but no luck whatsoever.

This was 3-rd game in 4 days with travel. And, in my mind, this is the main reason for lack of finish tonight.

And I think, the fresher Marky would stop the first goal. 

 

I doubt many goalies would stop that one timer. Fresh or not

Same reason we can’t beat Carey Price.

 

Some goalies just get up for certain teams. And get a little luck along the way.

 

Ok, but I think the whole Jets team think the Canucks are an easy 2 points, Canucks need a fierce, feisty, push back.

Can we just leave him on ltir and forget him , which would be easy cause I can barely remember what he looks like in a Canucks jersey......:bigblush:

Nobody really cares about him anymore.  What's the point of playing 3 games then miss the next 20...I only wish Ferland can come back soon and be the player he was.

Not a very memorable game but I have to give props to Coach Travis for shortening his bench in the 3rd and sitting the ineffective guys such as Schaller, Beagle and Ericksson. 

There was more flow to the game and it generated quite a few chances. 

I agree though that our gritty guys need to play with a little more aggression and the odd hit here and there would go a long ways. 

Its like the adult league where there is no hitting in the game. BORING!!!!!!!!::D

This was a game where some more inspired play from the grinders would have been nice.

 

Jay Beagle is underwhelming, and I am being charitable with that assessment.

 

Secondary scoring needs to happen more often as well.

 

Let's not sign anymore 30 somethings from former Stanley Cup winning teams, they aren't hungry, they just want a paycheck.

 

Special teams need to be fixed, they stand around way too much on the PP AND the PK. Get that puck to the net, no need to pass 500 times.

This team has skill and speed, but they have little to no pushback. Pretty tame little team.

Outside of Roussel and Miller on the odd occasion this team is too soft. Motte has the heart but not the bite.

Agreed, the whole team is soft, including the captain.  I wonder if it is the players, or the coach.  I tend to think it is the coach, a hard tough coach would not allow his players to be soft in tough situations....

When the coach gets hard, everyone's hard.

Just your average Winnipeg-Vancouver game. One of these days we'll have successful games against them. Take the L and get the more important W against the Coyotes.

I would add virtanen to that list too.

I think its part of the legacy of this team in recent years combined with the characteristics of the players they look for.  The guys on this team all seem to be genuinely good people.  Turn the other cheek kind of people.  It makes for a good team environment but doesn't always play out well in a contact, physical competitive environment.  You need those guys that take the battle to the other team and answer the bell when required.  Some of the toughest SOB's on the ice were Princes off the ice - Jarome Iginla was one of them.  You need those guys in my opinion to win.

On occasion.  Not consistently enough IMHO.  The hard part is watching and knowing it's there and then it goes away for periods of time.

I agree.

 

I got flamed for proposing signing Kassian in Ufa

 Obviously they would have to make it work contract wise, somehow remove Eriksson or do something.

 

But we need some angry grit.
