Ok, but, cost us the series? 
Maybe you’re just venting. 

No, not venting. Just being critical assessing his performances.

 

He’s been a no-show and supposed to be one of our primary goal scoring options. He hasn’t done that thus the Canucks have lacked to goals to kill games.

I believe the turning point in this game was, 3rd. period, Canucks ahead 3-2, Virtanen set up 10' directly in front, misses the net, Vegas goes down the ice and scores.  That just sucked the life out of the Canucks, instead of 4-2 it's 3-3.  However, to be realistic, Vegas is the better team, is winning the majority of the puck battles and deserves to be ahead.

He got us past Minny. We're not here without his contributions in that series 


Oh I’m not saying anything against that. What about after the 5 games series? Blues+Vegas...ghost

They're coached better. Gets more out of their players. Guys that are complete no names play great hockey for them. That's just great coaching. Who the &^@# is Whitehead??? Who the &^@# is Chandler Stephenson? They're running train on our team. 

Goes both ways though.  I'm sure St. Louis fans were asking "Who is Tyler Motte?"

I know you absorb a lot of hostility from your comments on coaching, but a lot of actual hockey people on here leave you alone for the most part because you have a point. 

Once the playoffs are over, let’s make a thread to discuss team coaching. 

It was the biggest single factor in this series 

 

but I agree it needs to be discussed 

 

the fact Baumer does not encourage the high clear or frankly an icing given our faceoff win percentage is beyond me

Need to cut the dead weight and fill in the gaps in the off season.  Hopefully Juolevi and Rathbone can shore up our D.  I hate to say it but Tanev is more of a #5 D man now.  What a warrior!  He will be elsewhere next year.

Two rookie dman can't carry the mail next year.

 

They need a legit top 4 vet.

 

Myers needs to sit. He's still banged up. He was brutal.

He is trying his butt off and frustrated with himself 

 

pouting? 
 

Give your head a shake 

 

he is frankly a great example for his teammates 

 

yet another person who has never stepped on the ice posting like a champ 

Trying to justify his hate of the Miller trade, always pounces on any of Edler’s mistakes to justify his hate for him too.

VGK is just an ugly team in general. Pacioretty, Stone, Lehner, Reaves, Schmidt, Stastny, Stephenson, Carrier, Dansk. 
 

they don’t have beauties like the Canucks. 
 

Hey hey, Schmidt isn't that ugly... .... ...that is all.

No they’ve been a good team for a few years now. Which sucks, should have had to feel some pain like the rest of us. Not sure about Whitehead but he’s playing ahead of some experienced Dman on that team. And Stephenson is a solid player
