Not rocket science, Canucks were still playing a scrimmage while Anaheim was playing a real game. once it got to 5-2, you could see the Canucks step it up to stop the carnage and avoid complete embarrassment.

Blaming Schneids for this debacle is ludicrous, it was a team effort. lots of soft/blown coverage.

5th goal - Ballard loses Getzlaf from the corner who then finds an open dman in the high slot - not 1 but 2 missed coverage.
4th goal - Hamhuis doesn't tie up Perry in front of the net - slam dunk
3rd goal - 3 on 2, no back-checking center to be seen, Ballard doesn't move over to tie up Winnik in the middle either.
2nd goal - cannon from Souray blocker side, a litte weak but Souray had all day to tee it up as well.
1st goal - Garrison gets turned inside out by Saku who floats one in that gets deflected by Winnik who isnt covered by Edler either.

Few comments

-didn't like the idea of a line with 2 rookies/marginal defensive player and guess what
-Kassian is a step or 2 behind the play. Sb back in the AHL.
-Burr so rusty...
-Weise a step above last year's level already, very good to see. Could be a breakout season for him.
-Volpatti actually looked serviceable.
-Manny looked behind the play and out of sync.
-Lapierre looks to be a little slower than LY. Really don't like him as 3rd line center right now.
