#11360315 Who on the Canucks frustrates you the most?

I can't suggest lineup changes since I never played pro hockey. What I do know is what is driving me crazy while our Canucks look to be failing again.

1. GM - Gillis had 2 years since Boston and hasn't made critical changes. Team is still too small. We also still have dollars held up in two goalies and Ballard. We knew 2 years ago, they should have been turned into productive assets by now.

2. Coach - I blame Gillis for not giving AV new tools but AV shouldn't be making big line changes heading into Game 1. He did it last year too. Aren't players supposed to learn to play together earlier! AV is acting too cute with these changes, its not about your last minute tweaks! Concentrate on strategy and motivating instead of headline line changes.

3. Edler. Can be one of the best or one of the worst. Never saw a defence man so inconsistent. Can dish out killer hits one game or disappear the next. Every time he holds the puck behind his net is disaster. Stop the power play drop pass! I think he's a robot who doesn't know how to change his play decisions no matter what is in front of him. Needs big dose of vitamins and brain food.

4. Raymond. Ugh! Is he half the weight of every other player? If not then he has no excuse. Always takes the easy way out. Has he ever driven to the net? I'll give him a bit of credit for being better in game 2 but benching him would make my day. I bet most players play more physical in practice.

Now please win Game 3 and turn this around.
I'm wondering if I'll see a cup in my lifetime.
