I'm on my mobile so I won't be able to dissect your post entirely.
Firstly Henrik Sedin who's the captain and best player of the Canucks yes did lead his team to the finals he had the most points of any Canuck players, how can you say we made it there in spite of him? It's plain idiotic. If anything we made it there in spite of Luongo, but lets not make this a Luongo thread.
Secondaly it's hilarious how you can just scoff at Henrik's 112 point season and just be meh about it. He won the Hart Trophy that year as the most valuable player to his team this year, but let me guess the Canucks won the division in spite of Henrik that year as well. No Henriks not only had "2 good regular seasons" he's consistently been among the league leaders in points year in and year out. He's probably top 5 in points in points since the lockout[2005-2006]
You can defend Luongo yet call The Sedins notorious chokers. It honestly puzzles my mind the Sedins' have scored the most playoff points for this team for the past 4 years, yet there "chokers" Yet the goalie who is prone to have at least 1 or 2 meltdowns in a playoff series is dubbed as a saviour.
So Henrik can show up for one series in the 2011 playoffs and all of a sudden he's the one who carried us to the Cup finals?? How do you figure that? Henrik wasn't the one who was considered our Conn Smythe candidate, Luongo was. So I really don't see how you're giving Henrik credit for this. He scored 12 points in 5 games against the Sharks that year. Absolutely dominated that series. In the other 3 series combined he produced at a 0.50PPG pace. Not acceptable. He absolutely no-showed the SCF too, definitely something you don't want from your captain.
The Sedins are chokers because they constantly no-show the playoffs. Not sure what Luongo has to do with anything to be honest. I will never forgive Henrik for no-showing the SCF. 1 assist in 7 games against the Bruins is flat out unacceptable.
Zomg LUONGO should have moar SHUTOUTZZZ!!! Offense can't score but it's Luongoz fault!!!!111
Kesler has played how many dominating games like last night in the last year?
huge overreaction thread
Again for reference, I'm not basing it on this game, series or anything beyond I find the team rallies when Kesler's on his game more than Henrik. I thought Kesler should have been the captain three years ago and still do now. I'm not necessarily saying Hank is awful nor that this is a particular important decision. Just a different opinion.
