This all rests on the coaching staff. Has little to do with the players.

Yeah, but every goal was not Luongo's fault. There are scientific explanations as to why he could not stop any of them.

Howard outplayed Luongo big time and the Canucks had one of their worst 3rd periods, in terms of compete level, that I can remember.

That was bad... real bad.

Datsyuks name was mentioned 24 times in the third period.

That game was terrible. I am so sick of the way things are going. I have never advocated for AV's firing but at this point a change needs to happen. This team is lifeless.

You can give Weise all the prime ice time in the world and he would do nothing with it. I think we need to look at what our coach has to work with, what is the GM giving him? A soft defence with no powerplay QB or elite puck mover, terrible depth up front, wasted cap space on the goaltending position that could be used to upgrade another area.

I agree AV and Brown are doing a terrible job this season but it's not a well built team.

It's a little to do with the players. We have third liners trying carry a second line, a fourth liner slotted in at #3C and AHLer's on the 4th line.

highlight of the night is when Hrudy called AV's coaching brilliant when we are down 5-2 in the 3rd. He's brilliant!!

It's going to be tough for this fanbase to face the fact that the team is just not that good anymore. It's been a long time that the team has been among the best in hockey. It will be quite the transition for us all.

There are teams with much worse rosters doing more. AV is getting paid a lot of money to be a positive contributor and right now he's not even an average one. If there's anyone not living up to their contract, it's him.
