Have you actually seen Ottawa's roster? They don't even have the Sedins, let alone people like Burrows, Higgins, Raymond, Hansen, etc. And their D is laughably bad.

Whatever dude. If the team can't succeed when Lappy is not going, then we have major issues.

Does Farhan Lalji still post on HF Boards?! I remember he did some threads I believe last summer

I wonder if he'll shed some HF Canucks some love on twitter!?

The teams signed too many trash D who thinks their something every ****ing game and thinks they give a half assed effort and that is good enough. that is the problem. Starts with Bieksa.

Man this team is ****** this year. Good thing that half of out forwards are gone this summer.

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
???-Kesler-???
Booth-???-Hansen
???-???-Kassian

Tanev only free agent defenseman for regulars.

yeah, i get that...but we need some finish here.

IMO a PP unit of Sedin-Sedin-Kassian (or Higgins to screen if Kassian is out) out with Bieksa and Garrison


Or

Sestito-Ebbett-Weise
Alberts-Tanev

Just for the **** of it, I mean seriously what's the worst thing that can happen? We lose more games or the PP drought goes on for longer? ***** please. Fire AV and promote Arneil, I'd rather lose with another coach than this one.

AV and Gillis should be ashamed I hope Aquaman rips them a new ***hole with words alone.

Sure, they don't have Sedins. But I was speaking about their depth not their stars. Which they have little of.

[mod cleanup] Their depth players without a doubt are not better than those of the Canucks. The direction is different.

There is something wrong. All these other teams being mentioned play with energy and life. The Canucks have none of that. To me that points to the coaches.

Let me put it this way we are gonna get killed if no improvements show and we will probably do better next year. Look more like a Stanley cup team cause we will have new players I hope.

Yeah. Alfredson is Sedin-class. Rest of team is on par with rest of Canucks. Really don't see a big difference in the two rosters

Ours might have a small edge in talent, theirs has an edge in hustle.

I watch a TON of hockey. The difference being that it appears these guys the Canucks have are always so overrated and can't get it done when it matters. Dan cleary and Abdelkadet
Owned these guys all night.

mo doubt this team needs a shakeup....i was at the wild game last Sunday....the energy just wasnt there...and still isn't. Only thing is I feel like this shortened season is buying AV an extra season.

Even if that's true, there are two Sedins.
