Miller needs to stop his pouting bit. OJ needs a shot at the second unit PP. Green and his staff are way to passive, can't line match, or embrace anything that resembles aggressiveness. Jake has checked out. Hughes needs a legit dman as a partner.

Works his tail off and gets 2-3 good chances a night. I'd put him up in top 6, personally. Pearson keeps getting a free pass basically doing nothing. Miller could use a demotion after like 20 games of multiple BRUTAL giveaways. 

He skates hard and plays with enthusiasm, but he has no idea what he's doing out there. Scatterbrain player.

 @b3. , I totally agree with the lack of leadership.

 

I'm not mad at Marky and Tanev leaving at all, but those two were locker room pillars.

 

Like seriously, who do we have now that is mentoring our young stars? JT Miller? His on ice laziness and temper tantrums aren't very attractive to the young guys, especially Brock, Petey, and Hughes.

 

All of our other vets aren't good enough (Benn, Rous, Beags, Sutter), are too new to form meaningful bonds (Schmidt), or are too young (Horvat).

 

Who do we have taking these guys under their wing on and off the ice? No one.

 

To further prove your point... why is there no pushback? Why are we seeing the same result of leading hockey games yet coming out with the L? 

 

The answer is there is NO ONE HOLDING THE YOUNG GUYS ACCOUNTABLE at the end of the day. That's why were seeing the same mistakes repeated game in game out, over and over again.

 

I truly believe leadership is the issue.

 

Also, flame away but I think Bo was forced into the Captaincy a little too early. The fanbase wanted another Trevor Linden and thrusted that label on him.

That’s the coach’s job re accountability. In my opinion, Green looks like he has lost the room. The team is not playing well together and I don’t know if it is a lack of coaching intelligence or ability to motivate these players. If your system is not working, you need to improvise, adapt and overcome. You can’t fire 10 players but you sure can replace a coach

Damn this is frustrating. I don’t think it’s the talent that is the issue. I’m a big green supporter but it might be time to change coaches just for a fresh start with the players.

So let me get this straight.

 

a) Players are absolutely pathetic and don't care despite scoring 3 goals

b) Top line is trash despite Petey managing to get second star with 2 points

c) Canucks constantly have possession, but they lose the puck because they suck and don't care.

d) Goaltending is the reason we lost, even though it's the other players that suck and don't care.

f) Again, complete lack of efford in the second, despite being up 3-1 in the third.

 

Just trying to understand why they didn't win and you seem to have all the answers. Thanks.

Will jimbo be smart enough to sell of some assets? I doubt it , dark times man .

I trust him to trade more picks/prospects for more expensive, flatfooted vets on a long-term contract hoping that the team would still make the postseason.

Agree.  Bo wasn’t  ready. 
 

TBH, he never led a team before and he doesn’t know what he needs to do to help the team when it’s struggling. 
 

should have gone with three assistant captains. 

Not a defense for Bo as captain, but no one is stopping the other vets from stepping up and leading by example too.

Have you seen them play defense? 

So you believe Benning just acquired a bunch of horrible defenseman?


Or is it more plausible that the systems and the strategies this coaching staff deploys is the problem.

 

The fact that Schmidt cant figure out how to play in this teams system makes me think it’s the latter.

I still think this team has more of a personel issue then a coaching problem.  Our bottom 6 is slow and aged out and there is too much pressure on the lotto line to carry this team every night offensively. Our pairings on D aren’t much better. 

? The lotto line hasn't been carrying anything,  Neither has Horvat's.

The bottom six have done their job far better than the top 6 this season.

We are stuck in such a bind, Aquaman needs to bite the bullet admit his mistakes and get a new GM in now , &^@# waiting till the end of the year 

Lombardi or Futa hopefully. then sign Gallant in the off season.

I don't think Green deserves the boot, but he's the obvious choice.  I wish it was JB a year ago already.  But the team needs a shake up, and he's next on the docket, with no contract.  Although a new coach is not going to do much more with what he has this season.

They are playing good.

 

For about 20 minutes a game.

 

Tippet made adjustments in the second and we were doomed  from that point on. 
 

We need more experienced coach who has better pulse on the game.

He's probably the only player on the team who can get his stick on a puck in the slot. Rest of them are always on the wrong side of the puck and easy out for opponent. Also he's got a pretty wicked one timer that our coaching staff has never even tried to utilize.

Miller was brought in to be a leader w/ a young group, had 1 good year, now is pouting as if he's about to quit on the team.

 

Kesler gave us 10 years & didn't quit on the team post 2011 until it had been completely managed into the dumpster.  

Miller is reminding me far too much of Vrbata,.

It would be so Canucks to get 1st overall in a year you can't even scout players.

There are still some sure things in this draft. 
 

Benning’s failings have not generally been in evaluation of talent. It’s been poor contact & asset management & deal-making or the lack there of.
