*Buzzsaw* Posted November 18, 2015 Share Posted November 18, 2015 I realize this is a team in transition, I realize they probably won't be storming the league standings. But right now the Canucks are not losing their games because they are being outplayed... they are losing them due to silly mental errors and lack of confidence. It's all about the unforced giveaway right now... how many times have you seen a Canuck's player, not under pressure, not being forechecked, make a poor pass, or a poor clearing attempt that results in a turnover? This is Junior B stuff I'm talking about... the type of issue coaches in Midget spend their time coaching about. Almost every time, the Canuck player has the opportunity to take a little extra time, size up the positioning of their team-mates and the opposition, and make a clean, safe pass. But instead they rush it... and Bingo! Giveway. Willie really needs to get through to these guys, and lay down the law... the team needs to understand... take that extra fraction of a second, and think before you get rid of the puck. The good news is, they still could have won another 6 games easily if they weren't handing them to the opposition on a silver platter. But they do need to turn this around... or this kind of sloppiness is going to be a permanent part of team psychology, and that is not good for young developing players.
