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.
Fire AV and the entire coaching staff except Melanson and Takahashi
Buyout/trade Booth and Ballard
Get rid of either Schnider or Luo
I wouldn't mind GMMG staying but if he got fired I wouldn't care
Only resign Tanev & RFA prospects
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!
Who the **** is talking about the last 5 minutes? We're talking about the ****'in last minute where you know the Sharks are going to be pulling the goalie and be in effect a power play opportunity for them. When's the last time the Sedins played any meaningful minutes on the PK? When Paul Martin was PM?
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.
team is a running joke in the playoffs for 5 years straight...if burrows didnt have that chicago game 7 winner the amount of futility would be up there as being unparalleled in modern postseason north american professional sports
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.
