The Canucks

Alright it might sound early and all, yes sometimes we have 3 straight losses but to be honest I don't feel that we have a Stanley contending team. What would you do at the trade deadline? because clearly this team needs to make some moves or we are looking at another early exit in the playoffs.

Weak spots:

-Defense has been weak
-Forwards need to work harder
-60 min effort
-Powerplay

I think we need to get some new defense if they aren't good by then because they have been horrible since the start.

Possibly a new coach?

Anyways the Canucks need to make a new move somewhere.

I am not basing it off the game. I just think that our defense and coaching needs some changes.

I've never liked AV and his style of coaching.

Forwards are fine, effort is okay most of the time... goaltending is mostly exceptional... Defense is horrendous right now.

I wish if we could ship out Garrison for a PMD. Not sure why we gave him his money if he can't play the position we need him to play.

Other than that, I think the team looks just fine on paper. Maybe a Top 6 upgrade if applicable but no need to blow up the farm. Our problem has been getting it together.

I think they should have did these lines

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Higgins-Kesler-Booth
Raymond-Schroeder-Hansen
Volpatti-Lapierre-Kassian

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Edler-Garrison
Ballard-Tanev

Schneider

Kesler hasnt played in 9 months and it shows. Another 9 or so games and he will be back. Maybe it will take 20 games.

Booth is a disaster. I know its been 1 game but he acts like a 4th liner now.

Garrison needs more time but he looks like hes over matched. Playing in the South East division is not the same as the Western conference. Keith Ballard found that out the hard way.

We have too much money tied up in mediocre goalies that rarely outplay their opponents. Why not just save the money like the Hawks and others do?

I am sorely disappointed in the team at this point. They look good but not great. There is no way this current team beats the current Chicago team in a 7 game series.

Its true the Hawks are not going to be as good once they come back down to earth but we have our work cut out for us.

Looking like the team that got decimated in the first round last year. Lazy.

1 game. Are you a Booth hater or just being completely ridiculous here?

Luongo has been good pretty much all year.



I realize the hawks are just red hot right now, similar to the bruins last year, but the Canucks just don't seem like they will ever be capable of rattling off 16 without a regulation loss. chicago is just 10000 times more consistent.

Give Kesler 20 games to get back up to speed, but give none for Booth? He hasn't played for 9 months, either.

"rarely outplay"? Other than the home opener stinker and the Stars game, Schneider and Luongo have at the very worst given us a chance to win and at best stolen many points. Our defensive play has generally been a circus, but we have two fantastic goaltenders saving everyone's bacons night in and out.

We would be off to another sub .500 AV star if not for our stellar goaltending.

You're right, it is.

One loss where we carried the play, and two bad coinflips is not a reason to do anything drastic. Monkey with the D pairings and try again.

I really really hope the Canucks can do what the Kings did last year.

I even stated it was just one game for booth but I just dont see it when we need the cap space next year. I like David Booth.

I am not a 'hater' Serge2k. I dont think in those childish terms.



Luongo has played fine most of the time. His contract sucks.Either he or Schneider needs to go. Its too much money tied up in goaltending.

2-1 and 1-0 are hardly leads. Yes, the Dallas game resulted in a blown lead, but not he last two. We've technically had 1 loss and 2 SO losses. We've played pretty well up until tonight (however, the D just imploded).

Lol at 'stellar' goal tending. Lol at sub 500 with other goalies.

I dont keep him next year.

Then discuss it in the offseason.

What is this strange idea people have that we need to clear space for next year right now?

Luongo's contract has absolutely zero to do with his level of play which has been far from mediocre.

oh well I guess 2 goals is hardly a lead either.

and you know, they got really close to OT in dallas so that's almost a point.

Why don't we just be happy about how awesome the canucks have been!

If it takes Kesler twenty games to get going. We better pick up the slack. Thus far, I'd say we are not even trying.

How in the world do you assess that evaluation of Booth on one game? He actually played decent.

If it were not for Luongo and Schneider, we wouldn't be in the playoffs. This team has been marred by horrid inconsistency and our goaltending is the only reason we have any semblance of contendership.

I sure am glad it's only a third of the way through the season, because it's just discouraging to watch them play this way.
