I agree. Most of us don't want to accept it but we're totally on the decline. Players and coaches have gone as far as they can together. It was a great run.

I know this is hardly revolutionary, but the Canucks' mental weakness continues to be frustrating. When something goes wrong, you just know it's over.

If they were the ones who had surrendered a goal 6 seconds in, they'd be done. Detroit just ignored it and played a great game.

The sad truth is, we are. This team is playing woefully below their talent level. Even without Kesler, a coach should be able to utilize his assets better when what you have just happens to be two PPG players, a fantastic defense core and strong goaltending. If Maclean were here, we might be challenging Chicago right now.

Exactly. AV has no idea how to use his assets. We acquired Garrison both to shore up defense and offense from the back end, yet he is never used on the powerplay. Did AV miss the slapshot goal Garrison got not two games ago?

Ottawa, for example, is icing an AHL team and doing really well.

Like who? Of course I agree AV is a goof, but I have also been vocal about how Gillis has put this team in a terrible position.

This may or may not be true, but even if we assume that it is, I would hope management tries something big to jump start this team, we need new life

I guess you missed the Dallas game.

Ottawa. Montreal. Phoenix. Carolina. New Jersey. Even the damn Wild.

Ottawa is missing #1D, #1G and #1C and are ahead of us in the standings. Half their team is AHL guys right now who aren't even good AHL players.

Not entirely his fault, but he is part of the problem.

If the team falters over the next week I Gillis might have to look at being a seller. I really don't know if the issues this team has are fixable this year.

Ottawa is a good example, but every other team you mentioned has at least as much talent as we do sub Kesler. Maybe not Phoenix either.
