I believe the Canucks will turn it around, but to think we're in the clear is delusional. A handful of contracts Benning handed out is coming back to bite us, but at the same time, to claim he's a GM worthy of getting fired is delusional as well.

 

These are growing pains. Acknowledge that the team is by no means perfect, but the Canucks have certainly improved, and there's also a lot of room for improvement as well. 

 

It'll also be interesting to see if, and how, Green and his coaching staff adjust.

Good one

Well, he did have 8 blocked shots, and provides an actual physical presence unlike the majority of the team, so I think it would be. At least with him in, the Canadiens might choose to go after him for retribution for the Armia hit, and not little Quinn.

Exactly. Is the team not wired that way, or are they being guided to play a less physical game?

Who knows. But how do you explain a guy like Roussell. Loved the way he played in Dallas but he's invisible this year. He's playing his home province Habs and he's invisible. Is that coaching, or Rousell tired of having no backup?

After sleeping on last nights loss, I still have optimism with the season.

 

Yes, we have major issues right now, but at the very least, all these issues are mostly rust and pretty much coachable and being prepared. Many of MTLs goals last night, we pretty much gave right to them. MTL gave us nothing, and we still managed 3 goals. Tighten up defensively and we probably win both nights easy. Too many vets making high danger passes at key moments in the game. Schmidt and Petey give aways were brutal, but they likely wont happen again.

 

Furthermore, lots to be excited about with guys like Horvat and Boeser looking much better this year. Gaudette looks like he will break out soon, probably just needs a better winger than Roussel if Im being completely honest. Chatfield showed great poise before he went down, might turn out to be Tanev-lite.

 

Holtby and Demko will get better as the year goes along, we haven’t exactly eased them in. 

 

Regarding Pettersson, I am about 95% sure he will have a 5 point game coming up and from there he will be off to the races. Seems like a confidence issue that will be rectified soon.

 

Go Canucks Go!

I don't follow.

 

I've pointed out before that the coaching staff need to adjust their strategies, especially on the defensive side.

He's actually from France, but still, the guy is a plug at best.

Well, we'll see about that. I previously said that I hope this piss poor defence being amplified with the absence of Markstrom will finally trigger the coaching staff to have a look in the mirror and change things around.

It seems the go to is blaming the team though “We look immature out there” “The guys aren’t happy with themselves” “We didn’t play our best hockey” 

“We weren’t skating” ... Etc.

I suspect that's because Green has been hell bent on making sure the players "buy in." I've always heard him say that. I think that sentiment applies in terms of player development and maturity, but hopefully he hasn't lost sight of his responsibilities of making sure the strategies he tries to deploy fit well with his players and are effective against opposing teams.

He sure has been playing that way. I'd rather move Motte to that line, or at least give MacEwen a shot.
