  1. It doesn't matter in this Covid era.The phony crowd noise inspires no one. The problem is going to be with this team for a long time, unless the owners have had enough. Seattle is going to be in the picture very soon too.
  2. One could blame the coaching for Hughes decline. They expected way too much from him. Maybe they over coached him, or just let him, a talented skater, do his thing. I don't know but the management is responsible for the slide the Canucks are in. It only took the loss of 2 D men and a goal scorer to ruin a wining team. The Canucks also are without Tyler Motte their best penalty killer. You can't blame the team, or Hughes.
  3. Coaching has a lot to do with the Canucks play of late. The power play is the same every time. The back pass to move forward is predictable and the teams main play to get up the ice. There is reluctance to change things by the coaches, and much of the hopelessness, started because of the players they lost, and they also have some players that need to retire. I think there is enough talent to win or protect leads, but the coaching needs a shake-up. Their biggest problem is still the D. Maybe Green is not the biggest problem. The team can't expect Hughes to carry them. They have really put too much on him.
  4. Its too bad Canucks have now lost the chance to hire Burrows. Classy teams like to hire guys that gave their all to the team they played many years for. Burrows will be great for the Habs. If the now fired Montreal coach was hired by Vancouver, he would wreck Bennings mess even more.
  5. The mentality that this team must be a fast skilled team means they don't want a scrappy controversial team. I believe the powers that be have tried to make the team this way since the riot of 2011 . Of course we are not to say that there is a league conspiracy against the Canucks. It has now been over 50 yrs without a cup. New York complained about not having won one for 40 yrs back in 1994 . That also was when there was a riot in Vancouver.
  6. Maybe a coaching change is needed. Last year Miller was great. Even Virtanen put up good numbers. While Green might be an OK coach for some teams, he is just a shade better than the previous coach. On the other hand the manager still has Eriksons dilema and an aging Edler to deal with. So last season the Team made Green look good. What happened ? The team knows. In last nights game with a minute left in the first period they let the Oilers score. They would have gone to the room with a 3 nothing lead but that goal was the beginning of the loss. It is time for a new coach and manager maybe a new owner. Seattle is coming soon and its been 50 or so years without a cup. Vancouver fans deserve better.
  7. After watching 4 games only the first one seemed to have effort and enthusiasm . It is a far cry from the teams play last year. Last year the even the coach got my approval. I don't see this team doing well. There seems to be no chemistry. When that goes away it makes every one look bad. OK there is time to recover, a get back some respect but I don't see it. Perhaps too much was dealt away but we still have Edler wounded leg and all.
