Kanucklehead10 Posted April 22, 2015 Share Posted April 22, 2015 Why is everyone blasting this team for what was expected? This team isn't going to win anytime soon. I thought fans accepted that. Canucks fans should be grateful enough that this team even made it to the playoffs. I love how bipolar every Canuck fan seems to be after games. Honestly, it's not like anyone didn't know how much of a choke-show the Canucks become, come playoff time. The funny this is that many Canucks fans love to overrate their players for what they really are. This Senior Sedins are past their prime and have no help (I think Henrik or Daniel even passed a flames player their stick after being pushed by him tonight).This team consists of a first line, two 3rd lines and a 4th line. Bieksa, Hamhuis, and Edler, once considered top defencemen in the league are getting outplayed by the likes of Brodie and Russell. lol. Need I say more? Anyone remember what Torts said in his final assessment on the Canucks last year? "The core is stale, I believe there needs to be changes" He was right Why is everyone so blind to this? It's been 5+ years with this core and all you see is disappointment after disappointment. Coaching was never the problem. Two years ago, AV was never the problem. He's a great coach; brought the Canucks to the finals in 2011, made it to the finals last year and has turned the rangers into a powerhouse. Then there are those fans that will say "he was with this same team for too long and the players wouldn't listen to him anymore". Anyone hear of Mike Babcock? Lindy Ruff (who had success for many years with the Sabres when he coached them for 15 years?) Hell, If that was the case, then it would've been even more reason to change the core because it obviously shows a lack of commitment and loyalty on their end. Throughout the years management and fans alike have been so delusional with their expectations and beliefs in this team and are the ones that run this team to the ground until it is too late. So what are we shooting for again? Another mid to late pick in the draft and continue on with the cycle being a mediocre team that is never good enough to win? 43 years in the making.... I hope Benning sees this issue and makes some big changes in the offseason, because it's the same BS story each year. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
