I agree the Canucks start slow each season, the records in the first ~20 games shows it clearly. However, as I mentioned, the Canucks have played uninspired hockey since the win in Boston dating back to last year that saw us get steamrolled by LA. In fairness, LA steamrolled everyone, but we're suppose to be much better, and leading up to those playoffs, I'd be lying to you if I said I was confident.

I feel the same way so far this year - not very confident. We have the pieces and tools for another Cup run, but the system, effort, you name it, is so far off. Things can change, and I sure hope they do, but as it stands right now it's hard to have confidence.
