It's the same thing as Hansen-Hossa, everybody should be calling for a suspension.
The officiating is so terrible these days that someone on the Canucks should accidentally on purpose ding a ref with a slap shot to blow off some steam.

What game were you watching? That line was the only one going at times, other than the 1st.

If you want to hang the blame on a line, pick the 2nd or the 4th.

That was a little weird, but in fairness, there were no legitimate alternatives at that time.

If this team bows out with a whimper in the playoffs, AV's head has to be on the block. It just has to be.

I agree, the third line of Hansen/Kesler/Higgins is garbage

I think the Coyotes blue line is one of the most underrated in the league, would love to have someone like Yandle or Ekman-Larrson on this team.

If you can see the team's performance in my opinion is just lack of practice. Their passing is so sloppy to a point where the entire game is a mess.

The reason?

After a 8 goal debacle in Detroit the players opted for some Yoga instead of practice... and the coaches let them.

The result? Tonight's game.

These players are just getting way to comfartable.

I don't expect schneider to come across as so frustrated. He's the guy that i'm used to saying the politically correct thing and not making a big deal out of things. A frustrated schneider is not a good sign.

I love how were ragging on Kassian for not doing anything. How the **** is he supposed to produce with Lapierre who seems to be directly responsible for at least one goal against a game.

And Bowness can go **** himself.

That line was going this game. They failed on a few chances, no conversion, and that was the problem.

I think we all know this is where the Honey Badger steps up and sends a message.

Sure Schneider is suppose to have a calm demeanor, but it's nice that he's actually showing some emotion because of his average play. And no, Kane did not break Schneider, this teams system and lack of defense has. Being average every night is running off on everyone.

I gotta disagree with this, I think he's doing fine. That line was the least of our problems tonight.

Yep. Converting on chances has been the problem for them. They're generating a lot, actually and not giving up much.

frustrated Schneider = motivated Schneider?

maybe not, could be an effect of having Luongo there. Knowing that if you mess up at all you might not play for a week +

No he isn't. The goalies are a wash right now. And neither of them are really a problem. He also shouldn't be so hard on himself when there's a room full of guys who are playing much worse than he is.

I'm a huge Kassian fan but he is clearly not playing very well right now. He is really struggling to get the puck out of his own zone. I think he must have turned the puck over at least three or four times tonight along the side boards in the Canucks end. It doesn't matter if you're on the 4th line or the 1st line, those are reads you have to make.

I agree with this. The team is too comfortable running itself. Coaches need to put their foot down.
