Goaltending's keeping them in the playoff hunt. That used to be our ace in the hole, but that's no longer the case.

Bingo. The 5 on 3 was especially revealing.

**** it I'm still stoked I have the jersey.

I do however wish I had turned off the game after 6 seconds, I'd be on an emotion high at this point.

Sure.

Forest, trees - key take away - the difference in quality of rosters is not very large.

31 points, 59 points, 15 points... that sure sounds like Sedin-class. There is no comparing the two rosters.

If you watch hockey, then I have to say your evaluation is off. There's no way OTT's depth players are better than those of the Canucks. Not a chance. Sorry. I will contest that line whenever it is said because it's so patently false that it demands rebuttal.

The problem is that the majority of the time, they aren't even generating quality chances during the PP. It's one thing if they're applying an insane amount of pressure and the puck-luck just isn't there but unfortunately, that's not the issue. I don't remember the last time the Canucks had an extremely dominant power play. It's usually a one and done attempt or the play is completely along the perimeter. It's been this way for most of the 33 attempts. At what point can we start shifting the blame onto the coach's inability to adapt from a strategy that is completely failing?

The difference is: Ottawa goalies are dominant.

This team needs a defenseman. Not a rushingg defenseman or a puck moving D-man, just a simple "stay at home" defenseman. Y'know, like Lidster, Babych, Baron, Murzyn or Mitchell.

So you're going to use one overachieving team to try and prove your point. This roster is incredibly average without Kesler dude, and this is coming from a guy that wants AV gone as soon as possible.

You mean Hamhuis of last year? We have a lot of the pieces in place, and going into the season the only glaring hole was a top 6 scoring winger. The coaching has been a joke at managing our assets.

It needs 5 more Albert Andrews clones. AV seems to like him a lot.

There's a part of me that hopes the Canucks get a few more injuries and just fall apart. They could be that good team that has a bad year, drafts a superstar young player, and ends up back at the top of the league a year later (I hate when other teams do that).

I expect Booth to be out for the balance of the regular season (only 6 weeks), so Gillis at least has a ton of cap space to play with.
