  1. lol i dunno about you philadephia dominated us in the 1st period and if it wasn't for carter hart being terrible like he is we wouldn't be walking out of the 2nd period with 4 goals.. and the 3rd period the last 5 mins? i dunno how you can say we were great.. other than scoring 4 goals which probably at least 2 wouldn't have gone in on a competent goaltender. detroit and edmonton we were flat coming out of the game. you are paid to play a 60min game. not play a 40min or 20min game hell you are only on the ice at most 20mins a game for most ppl.. and u can't even show effort for a full 20mins on the ice and only show up here and there?? we didn't eather the storm against seattle Demko did lol the entire team was no show. no shots for almost 20mins? and we had a powerplay or 2 in there. that's effort?
  2. the negativity is mostly coz even though they came out of this road trip 3-2-1 they were not good in almost all the game and demko and to a lesser degree garland got them most if not all of the points. yes it was a 6 game road trip so it was rough to start the season, but at the same time it's literally the easiest road trip they'll get in terms of teams. every team they played witht he exception of oilers were not a playoff team and prolly 4 of them will be competing for the lottery. i honestly don't care too much about the result we can be 6-0 or 0-6 if we played hard for 60mins in all the games and competed i would be estatic as it's a step in the right direction. except we haven't had 1 single game where we played a complete 60mins. i guess the closest was the detroit game we showed up after the 1st period? the defense for the most part looks just as bad as last year against these teams that supposively have no good offense capability. the powerplay even though we changed the coach looks more or less exactly the same on the pp1 and there's really no personel change there except swapping boeser and pettersson position and having chiasson there earlier when boeser were injured. we haven't played any good teams yet and the effort level from top to bottom other than a few demko, garland, hoglander and to a lesser degree hughes and OEL have been terrible. having so much new player on the roster and not having a good effort every night is 2 different thing. unless that changes there's always going to be the negative outlook towards the team
  3. @PistolPete13 @VancouverHabitant find a post where i said he's worth 10-11mil than we talk. i said he's worth 9 long term and i still stand by that. so 6 games into a season he's a bust? well might as well call Makar and everyone else that's struggling couple games into the season a bust. oh and there's also 5 players on pace to break gretzky's single season record after 5 games. Garland is also on pace to shatter Henrik sedin's point record for the canucks so should we call start calling him the greatest canucks ever and start planning to retire his number?
  4. lol if they keep playing like this they would get fired.. u can't fire the entire team
  5. maybe the players are just trying to get green and or benning both fired.. prolly already tuned out the coach and his ahl tactics
  6. lol the coaching staff on this team teaches our PP to plant and not move?? literally the only person that moves on the powerplay is hughes.. everyone is planted and rooted to the exact spot on the ice and pass the puck around slowly.. it's not the other team is getting agressive it's we are not moving the defense.. they are just easily staying in their box blocking all the lanes since we don't move
  7. chiasson still on pp1 and we still can't even get a shot even with a PP lol
  8. lol that was tough to watch.. the entire kraken powerplay and then 1 full min after the powerplay the puck was in vancouver zone
  9. i woulda demanded a trade out of vancouver after seeing they giving all the plugs a chance with all the injury and still refuse to even give him 1 game
  10. It's early in the season to call this a must win game.. but I think this is a must win game.. with Seattle on the platter next for their opening night in their first ever home game in the NHL. Chances are they'll come out pumped and firing. Good chance we will lose that game and our record against expansion team aint exactly great. I dont think we can afford to start the season 1-4-1 and expect to easily make up ground later in the season. The 3 California team are playing surprisingly well and it would not be a surprise if one of them beats the odd and edge out the canucks for the playoff spot if we lose the next 2 games.
  11. EP's going to be fine he's playing with plug that couldn't finish (chiasson) the first couple games then a complete new line the last game. he hasn't even had a chance for continuity yet this season let alone no preseason. put the damn lotto line back together and if he's still struggling after 5-10 games then start whinning.. how often do you see other teams top player play with 4 different players on his wing in the first 4 games? prolly none barring injury
  12. ok most ppl know me for hating on benning forever now but let's be fair.. there's not much he can do about the right side of the defense when there's not much out there to begin with. like all his 1st rounders who would you have picked instead of who was drafted at the time? how many RD got traded or signed thur UFA that wasn't a king's ransom?
  13. I feel like this is just the way the coach is coaching them to play. I mean look at the powerplay they do the same thing over and over and over again year after year after year. I'm pretty sure the players are way more creative than the way they play its just they are told to play a certain way.
  14. Playing dump and chase hockey will prolly do that to everyone lol. Hard to score when you have a static offense /powerplay that move the puck around in slow motion and barely anyone moves on the powerplay and just stands there other than the defense that will change position.. other team literally just stand there and block all the shooting lane since they don't even have to move and you are praying the cross ice pass reach the target.. 5v5 offense is pretty much the same. We have speedy players yet we employ a slow offense. Maybe some of the players are fed up with greens system and not giving a f*k trying to get rid of him who knows.
  15. i don't think Green is going to get fired this year regardless of result unless we are sitting in last place half way thru the season or something then benning would prolly be gone along with him. Green just got a 2 year extension so i doubt FA wants to fire him 1 month into the season and pay him for the rest of the 2 years and then let benning hire another coach and in case benning gets fired the new gm wants another coach and pay all those personnel. the time to move on from green was end of last season that boat have sailed for Benning he's going to sink or swim with Green
  16. Yes I'm upset with this teams scoring. It's been issue all of preseason and so far all of 4 games. We have managed to score in 4 periods and have been shutout in 8 others. While other teams have scored against us in every single period except the 1st period of the first game. All his experimental and stuff should have been done in the preseason but he insist on playing like 80% of ahl lineup till the last game or 2 of the preseason and now he's taken 4 games to continue to tinker with the lines and so far it's not working. Pearson horvat works? Fine then put hoglander on there like last season. Lack of practice preseason? Play the ep boeser and Miller together they've only played together for 2 seasons. Stop tossing players in the top 6 and stop *spreading* the offense until there is offense to spread
  17. so eer what's the excuse tonight? tired? hot goalie? if it weren't for carter hart we prolly 0-3-1 right now. again our offense is non existent and i blame that on coaching.. insteading of loading up the top 2 line with something that worked we are trying to spread offense that's non existent so far with a new line up every game. EP and Boeser basically had no practice/training camp.. can't we just have the lotto line rather than a new blender line each night so they have familiarity? same with the 2nd line? like have horvat and hoglander play together coz it works and it worked before? garland can replace pearson. i stopped watching after the 1st period.. lemme guess our PP sucks again and looked passive/slow like it did every game? gonna stop complaining now before i get quoted and flamed for being negative coz dropping points in the beginning of the season is no big deal
  18. Nah you guys just like to see a negative post and then get all uptight about it. When the team did things well I praise them too like when they came back against oiler in game 1. But you guys like to filter out positives post and then shark anyone that post negative
  19. don't like my comment? then stfu and ignore it. not everyone needs to be a blind homer in order to speak their opinion on the forum. don't need you to go and quote every post with ur blah blah blah sh*t
  20. sure and i'll continue doing that every time we come out not ready to play or putting chiasson as the extra men when down by a goal when there's better options, and Green's tenure have shown us it'll happen more often than not.
  21. hard to beat any team thinking we can waltz in and play half a game. we ain't exactly an elite team here lol
  22. i mean we can complain all we want but we play one of the least back to back and the one of the most playing teams on the 2nd night of a back to back while rested every year if you actually look it up. the travelling part though definitely sux and sometimes doens't even make sense
  23. they definitely have way more than 7 back to back.. just go to their schedule and count.. literally they have 8 saturday/sunday back to back games on the calender alone.. and they have what 6 of them with 2-3 days break? and the rest all 1 day? vancouver schedule usually doesn't suck it's the travelling but not much u can do when you are the north western most team in the league
  24. i don't see other teams complaining about it. in general vancouver is in the upper 1/3 with the least amount of back to back in the league. we have 12 this year 23 other teams have more back to back than us with islander having 19 of them We also play the 3rd most teams on the 2nd of back to back while rested.
