i like to give AV benefit of a doubt that he will give JS a chance... but it's AV. he like to stick with his guns so learn to love Ebbett for a while.

There's just no offense when the Sedins are not there... Gillis had done nothing to improve this team. We may have gained Garrison, but IMO Salo was a more dependable and solid defensemen for us.
1 game. Way to overreact though.

i would argue there is no offense until there is a power play.

Well let me tell you this, game SEVEN of the SC final was just "one game".

Excellent logic. I just don't see why you need to stress over this one game. The Canucks may very well trample over the Oilers tomorrow and everybody will be climbing back on board.

Likely will be back on Wednesday. I don't think he's even in Chicago yet since he didn't play in their game today (and they definitely could've used him).

For everyone having a tough time swallowing such a loss on the first game of the season: it's just one game.

I saw a lot of positives today. Canucks had a much better transition game than any of the other 4 Canadian teams playing on CBC today. Sure, they lost. Schneider let in 4 goals from the inside the dots, mostly off of lost face-offs/the PK. I see the Canucks difficulties mostly stemming out of those two things, which have been strengths of the Nucks in the past and will be fixed.

If you're pissed off; sure Vigneault should have called a time out after it was 4-2, but take a deep breath, and let's watch the Canucks play their next 5-10 games. If they're still suffering from blatant gaffes, I'll join everyone else in the freak out, otherwise I hope to see everyone in the thread tomorrow!

Garrison is a better player than Salo is now. Neither would have changed the outcome of a sloppy team. Hamhuis/Bieska, our supposed best pairing, were abysmal after the first period. How exactly does Gillis improve us anyway?

Don't have anyone good enough to make the team.

Well, hodgson was good enough but we have kassian who is quite simply not as good.

All you folks getting super upset over this game need to go and have a few drinks and get laid.

It's just hockey. And one game to boot.

Well that sucked.

I thought Garrison and Ballard were our top D-men. Bieksa was back to terrible.

The fourth line was actually useful to eat up some minutes, that's better than we've seen for a while.

Not sure what the **** else went on there though, man alive. I really wish this team had a new coach.

Exactly, Gillis wasn't a stakeholder in the lockout. By all accounts on how the Canucks are run, he takes his job professionally and personally. He isn't a great public speaker, but I thought his speech was better than the tedium of announcing player by player (ala Winnipeg, & Montreal) with Coldplay playing in the background.
