Yup, everything I've seen points to a pretty epic collapse by the Wild. Those numbers just aren't sustainable. The questions is, have they put enough in the bank to still make the playoffs when that eventual crash happens.

Ebbett hopeful.
Schneider to start.

Carolina will be without Skinner and Pitkanen.

Why bother; the new bunch of mods there are hell bent on removing anybody who dares print a discouraging word. I was banned after 6,000 odd posts and 8 years for calling someone a "fool" (he suggested that Lucic was a jerk for bringing the Cup to Vancouver, his hometown). Apparently that was a "personal attack"!. I have been called far worse than that by the MODS! The mod doing the banning has under 30 posts to their name. Once you are suspended they make it impossible to contact the mod who did it and they never give any explanation which IMHO is Internet bullying of the first water. My solution was to create a bunch of new accounts that only post rah rah rah posts of the most moronic ilk. Strangely I get plussed a lot. Must be that what they really want is simply a "cheerleader" site. No post is too offensive there if it is directed at the Bruins or Hawks; there is some of the most disgusting hate spew posted there recently, much of it advocating the infliction of careerending injuries on particularly hated players (i.e. players that have had good success against the Canucks). No wonder there was a riot after game 7 of the SCF.

Anyone else feel Ballard is getting better? I thought he looked quite good for the most part. Certainly looks like a fine 5th d-man over the last few games.

Yeah, agreed. Looking at the numbers, scoring chances are now 25-11 for the Canucks with him on the ice in December.

I’ve made this point before, but fans here are getting really, really spoiled. Might be because there’s now a whole generation of fans that don’t really remember the team being legitimately bad. There’s actually a post in this thread complaining that we went 8-1-1 in a 10-game stretch against iffy teams.
Don't forget we have no goal scorers and are terrible at finishing despite finishing 2nd last year and currently sitting 5th. If we can't finish shame on the 25 teams that are worse than terrible.

Summary of most of the posts in this thread:

"I'm so mad the Canucks don't go 82-0 for the season. We should be able to beat x team. **** y player and their not showing up."

Can't win them all. I'd say we're doing a pretty damn good job right now.

Edit: Also, keep in mind that most really good teams go .500 for long road trips.

Well, I think we've said all we could say about this clunker. Pre-game thread for the 'Canes is up so let's continue there.
