We already are getting screwed by the refs.

Do people here really think that we can't beat Chicago with everybody back? There were no players seemingly available to really improve the club without trading a big piece back. We've played the entire season without one of the best centers in the game.

****ing ****.
Its simple.

People expect us to trade away prospects and assets to make the current team better, while trading away roster players for other assets aswell.

Jeez our fan base whines too much.

And even then, Phoenix would have good reason to still want the 3rd from Florida over what the Canucks' thirds from both 2013 and 2014.
like I said, Gillis could have just kept torres.

made no sense to let him go, and then later offer a 3rd round to get him back.

Okay my biggest issue has been the 2nd line RW spot for 3 years right now it's still Mason Raymond.

There's nothing about this club right now that makes me think they have any chance in a playoff run, unless the goaltending is out of this world.

Worst powerplay in the league over a year now, mediocre PK, defense in shambles, bottom 5 in faceoffs.

The blip made by Roy and Kesler might keep the Canucks in the playoffs but the same holes from before are still there.

Only loss was that we didn't add a depth defense man. Pretty clear that Gilman was sure they would land either one of Clowe or Torres but it just didn't pan out. Not sure why Clowe said that he would love to play for AV again and then choose NY. Wonder how he feels now that Gaborik is gone.

I wanted a 3rd/4th line winger and a RH depth d-man. Not trading Luongo is secondary to me, although I sure was hoping it would get done.

Raymond isn't even the RW. It's Jannik Hansen — the guy that's Top 60 in the NHL in ES scoring.
