Why does AV pair Roy and Raymond together? He has to go, his decisions and his inability to adapt are awful. Series is not over, but it might as well be.

It really is hilarious though that Ryan Kesler only needed two goals to go from being a bandaid who should be traded for any warm body capable of staying healthy for 75 games to the heart and soul de-facto captain of the team.

Forgive me if i'm wrong, but wouldn't you want your best players on the ice at that point in time? What other choice is there? Use 5 defenders?

The series isn't over yet. The Sharks are historic chokers as well.

This should be the base template for the team both for the rest of the series, and moreso in the offseason.
At the very least next year, the C should be placed on Kesler's chest....and we should stop referring to him as a "second line centre" and Henrik as a "first line centre"

No way the Sedins' get moved let's be realistic. Honestly wouldn't mind moving Edler ETC. Give Kesler the C though, the guys a ****ing machine.

Thought the Canucks were the better team but made critical mistakes at key times.

Sedins were unlucky to not have a couple tonight.

Kesler was terrific.

Didn't like the late goal but other than that, Luongo was very good. Neimi was even better, especially in the 3rd when the Canucks were really pressing for the 3rd goal.

Don't believe the series is over quite yet like most of you. Saw a great compete level and intensity from the team tonight, I'm hoping it carries over in San Jose. Bounces tend to even out over a series, Sharks are getting a lot of them right now, Canucks just need to fight through it. Sticking with my Canucks in 7 prediction.

Great first two games in terms of entertainment, although I really didn't like the officiating tonight.

I've been doing this Canuck thing since the mid-80's, not really crushed tonight because I've been through way worse. You get immune to this type of disappointment after a while and just accept that this is the way the Canucks roll!

Edler and Bieksa are $10M worth of defensemen. If AV can't put $10M worth of defensemen on the ice with 1 minute to go, then what the **** are we paying them $10M for?

I'm pretty much numb at this point.... And I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

I love how all these "friendly" fans come into our forum after wins.

There is no margin for error with this team because they can't score. When was the last time we won a 6-4 game in the playoffs?

Yep, blow it up.

You could turn this franchise around almost instantly, probably within a 1-2 year window if you start selling now and make the right moves.

You sure as **** don't put on four players who are medicore defensively (Sedins + Edler/Bieksa).

Again, why the **** do you have Edler & Bieksa out there as well in the final minute given the essentially power play situation for the Sharks?

Awful time management. Kid's stuff really.
exactly. He had a timeout at his disposal...****ing use it. I would rather even have Lapierre out there instead of this. The whole game, I was saying Bieksa Edler have been a disaster, yet the stupid coaching staff have been the only people do don't see it.

Did you even watch the game? Do you really think the Sedins were the best players on the ice tonight?

At times I wonder if we'd have been better off if the Hawks had won that OT. AV would've been gone, the team would've had other changes, and maybe that's us instead of LA last year.

Also ignoring the fact you can't play Kesler/Higgins/Hansen for he last 5 minutes straight.

Sometimes I think this team loses because , quite honestly. Our so called fans deserve it.
Yes you can, take a time out and tell them to deal with it.
