Obviously the series isn't over yet but I wonder when the media will stop beating the "The Canucks are a contender!" drum. It was patently obvious that they weren't all season long.
When you get smoked in your own rink in game 1 you can almost cue up the fat lady singing.
Especially a club thats been in a playoff funk since game 7 yrs ago. Nucks have no confidence in the playoffs right now and not suited for it either. Sedins get awfully shy in the playoffs everytime, Kesler, injured all year looks ordinary.
When Burrows is your best forward you're in a world of hurt.
Sharks have around 4 forwards that I'd rather have than any Nucks forward.
So who didn't see this Nucks team being steamrolled by a stronger, much better San Jose Sharks team. I'm surprised anybody was picking the Nucks. Some people on this board were.
Nucks are flat broke and blue. Team doesn't have a chance.
5 playoff home losses in a row, lmfao.
I'm not really a believer in Karma, but if I was I would say that they have been receiving a massive karmic kick in the ass ever since they lost the cup in that final. From the embarrassing way they cheated by diving and biting their way to the final, to the way their fans acted both during that season and playoffs to the the post finals reaction. It has been fun to watch.
