Why don't you give the boys more than one playoff game.

Maybe they're out playing roller hockey and learning the knuckle puck?

Including playoffs and regular season, I've waited the last ~100 games for them to show something more. I wish I had your faith that tonight's the night.

That's not what I meant and we should all understand that each season is different and it takes time to adjust to not only a playoff but playing the same team over and over. Look at the Boston series.

Give the boys 2-3 more games to make a more definitive opinion.

I overheard a conversation last night that the Canucks lost game 1 intentionally to guarantee a 5 game series. The extra revenue is for compliance buy outs. We are all Canucks.

So painful. I really wonder what is going through their heads in some playoff games. FFS, it was game 1 of round 1. They are facing Niemi, not Tim Thomas. Keep double-clutching and overthinking. They are both Art Ross champions and yet they were thinking way too hard in game 1. I knew I should have been worried when one of them brought up (before game 1) the Dallas series where they said they had lots of shots, but a lot of them were easy saves. I should have known that meant they would refuse to shoot quickly when they had a clear shot at the net because they were going to give niemi too much credit and try to wait for traffic. I totally get waiting to shoot in some situations, but ffs, if you keep double-clutching and waiting for traffic then a goalie is going to learn your tendency and be less worried about having to make a save if he knows that the sedins aren't going to shoot when they are wide open. These sedins. Seriously, please show up tonight.

I really thought Henrik had figured out playoff hockey in that LA series last year. It really looked like he had raised his play to another level. It was so good to see, but then they pull off that embarrassing game 2 nights ago. Maybe someone needs to show them a replay of Duncan Keith assaulting his brother. Seriously, wanting to knock off the Blackhawks in the 3rd round should be all of the motivation they need to try their best to get to the 3rd round.

Seriously. If I see another opportunity in prime shooting position, ES, or PP, or whatever, and they PASS...Especially Daniel, there will be a hole in my TV.
Yep !

These guys need to just watch where other teams shoot and score from .... i really think we should break up the Sedins if they not going to shoot !

The switch has been turned on, but it seems it has a dimmer that is on energy saving mode.

Tonight is pretty much the series, this team has never shown an ability to come back from trouble in the playoffs.

Will you have buyers/travellers remorse if they lose tonight?

I always do.

But hey, we got a great bunch of kids in the room, and we're just going to take this one snack, juice box at a time.

Game 7 vs chicago after being up 3-0 in the series. No ability at all.

That wasn't really a comeback. That was more of a team holding off disaster. Kesler and Burrows saved a lot of jobs that night. Lu with his OT save on Sharp as well. They were never down games in that series. If nothing else, that series showed how little killer instinct this team has. Up 3-0 and take the foot off of the gas.

Interesting that the team didn't take a morning skate. Not sure what to read from that. I sure hope the flu isn't making it's way around the room. I can just see them using that as an excuse if they get bounced again.

Yea definitely purposely losing game 1 rather than winning games 1-3 and losing game 4 is a better way to go to guarantee game 5.

I wouldn't be too worried. People are more likely to miss regular season games due to sickness rather than playoffs, but players get sick all of the time during the shorter playoffs. In other words, Kesler is not sitting because his sick and it's not contagious to the rest of the team. Ryane Clowe and Dany Heatley both missed a few games "sick" right after getting Kronwalled. Clowe wasn't sick, he was so beat up he couldn't even put his jersey on, but the org didn't wanna say that. Instead he can just be sick.

It's the playoffs. You get your leg cut off, it's flu-like symptoms. Kesler certainly did not pass his sickness to the rest of the team.
