Everyone has the Canucks' playbook now, and AV and co. haven't done much at all to address it.
To go from having the most lethal powerplay in the league to looking positively impotent can't be explained away by the loss of Ehrhoff.
Really hard to argue that especially in regards to the Canucks (not so) special teams. Adjustments have always been tough to come by on this team... talent, grit and speed always got them back into games... not system adjustments.
Maybe, maybe it is time... not there just yet, but that point is REALLY hard to ignore.
