The Canucks just weren't good enough. Blaming the refs doesn't fly tonight. 

 

Green's making some bad decisions lately, and his assistants aren't cutting it at all. 

 

In order for the team to take the next step, it's time to move on from some players, in order to surround the dynamic young talent that the team does have with complimentary players who won't slow them down. Benning's most defining off-season awaits. 

If you think Tanev being out in OT was one of these then I have to disagree. Hutton looked tired at the end of this game and I'd rather play a tired Tanev than a tired Hutton. If Toews danced Pouliot/Gudbranson/Biega/Stecher people would still be calling for Green's choice.

So it wasn't one sided. Can't always blame the refs for every loss. Sometimes you just have to be the better team by capitalizing on your chances.

most people tend to blame the refs for every lost here. Seems every nhl fourm is the same for that!!

I’m talking about the zone entry that Pettersson had the audacity to not do a drop pass on. 

I noticed that too, and could sense the stinkeye from the bench.  Hope he does more of it.

Tanev was a beast all game. Not sure what game you watched. We have to ride him because we have Poo on our team 

 

not Tanev’s fault we rode him like a mule 

 

 

He seems to be struggling sometimes to corral the puck on his off-side, but besides that, he's been Tanev. Quiet, effective. He is human, though, and he has some slumps and some periods when he makes mistakes.

I'm frustrated right now. Newell Brown needs to go.

He still thinks we have Salo, Sedins, Kesler and Burrows in the lineup.

How our defense could not get the shot through and on goal at critical time is mind-boggling.

You have to actually move to create lanes.

Green's line blender, while somewhat understandable, needs to allow for some stability. I think Hutton would have done fine in OT. If not, well it's a learning experience for him. He's made leaps this year and should have been given the spot. He's younger, stronger, and getting better. Giving him a chance against a wily veteran like Toews would have been fine. 

 

He also can't be pairing Guddy and Pouliot together. Pouliot needs to be waived and a better choice from Utica needs to come up and take his place.

Canucks weren't good enough but Sutherland's conduct, yet again, was completely unacceptable.  There is zero reason for his continued employment at any level, let alone the NHL's insistence in allowing him to pull his garbage literally every time he's assigned to one of our games.  It's time he's held accountable for his criminal corruption and locked up in prison where he belongs.

Hutton also has more creativity and offensive flair than Tanev who is a black hole for offense.

Yup. Team is shaping up but we still lack skill up front. Hutty and Stecher are on the verge but the back end still has trouble driving offence. Again, not enough depth. Starting to really notice leave though. He's creative, isn't afraid to hold onto the puck, good on the wall, decent hands... stood out for me tonight.
