4 games against bottom feeding Pacific teams should be 4 easy wins (but won't be for this team), the other 8 are against tough Playoff teams (2 against Arizona). If we win the winable ones we just need to go .500 to get 8/12 wins which should be enough for the playoffs.

 

Problem is that this team has excelled against top teams and struggled against bad teams.

There is no easy games and I hope the team doesn’t think the way you do. It won’t be easy to roll over the California teams. I’ve watched a bunch of LA games lately and there going down fighting and if you take a look you’ll see they’ve won 6 in a row. Ducks will play hard too. Canucks need a sense of urgency and need to outwork there opponent’s for the whole 60 minutes. Get pucks to the net and stop trying to make 5 passes to setup the perfect play. It’s amazing how many goals you score just by throwing the puck on goal. The Canucks team can still make the playoffs but they better be ready to go every night.

Lol, are you talking about the NBA champions? Great example to try an slam Green. :picard:

I am not trying to slam Green, I don't have enough hockey knoledge to do so, but I trying to understand how coach Nurse motivates his troops to give 110% every game, and if coach Green can do the same, that's all

I've found myself starting to get superstitious game days lately...you know avoiding ladders and mirrors...wondering if I should get my kids to wear my 94 western conference finals t-shirt (it's a gift that won't fit).  Broke my Canucks mug this year and my hot/cold carry mug too...penance has been paid by now I'd think. 

 

One thing i will say is this epic fail is going to end up near the top ten worst Canuck moments for me without a miracle.   

 

1. 94

2. 2011

3. Keenan/Messier

4. Bure leaving

5. Naslund injury 

6. Moore incident (ok that could be the same thing but at the time I felt it was our best shot at a cup with that team - now no Bertuzzi too)

7.  Otto kicked it in

8.  MIN comeback 

9.  McSorley/Brashear

10. MG contracts ruining chance of a getting loads of picks for us 

 

Honourable mentions.  Well let's just say I could find one for each of the 49 season's so far (lock-out means next year is our actual 50th season).  

 

11. Lidstrom scoring from center ice in 2002.

 

12. Neely

 

13. McLean backing up Ricther

 

14. Losing the lottery as an expansion team

 

15. Not signing Jovo an extension 

 

16. Not signing Ronning an extension 

 

17. Bure injured most of the time Mogilny was here 

 

18. New Lottery rules just when we need the old ones the most

 

Ok that's enough for now..

Going from 1st to? in our division this year...well let's just say it sucks major monkey balls.  And for anyone who's followed this team since the first cup final or even the second one...our "fan suffering index" is ranked at the top by THN and quite a few other writers that have delved into that sort of thing.  Two riots...hard not to understand the frustration. 

 

As for tonight- just win for chr!sts sake!  I will say a prayer for that miracle.

Just heard the Sharks cancelled their home games - re the coronavirus.

Surprised it starts in California - would have expected Boston - New York to lead the way. Larger crowds and all.

Not that this is GCT related for tonight but........mods delete if not appropriate

Jeff Paterson says Canucks have to win at least 9 out of the next 14 to ensure a playoff spot...

 

Dont see it happening this season folks..

I say Jeff Paterson needs to come up with one good question/statement in the next 14 to ensure he is an actual journalist

 

Don't see it happening....he needs to DOOOO something productive...
