[QUOTE=serge2k;36376315

They should have won that series, the fact that they didn't is inexcusable.[/QUOTE]

Actually that is crap. There were serious injuries and the team was just too beat up.

However, LOSEONGO did suck. He choked big time in Game 6 and 7 against Boston. HE choked big time in games 4 and 5 against Chicago. I know lots of people believe in him, but the facts speak for themselves. He gave up the game winning goal against Anaheim his first year, because he didn't wait for the whistle, he just gave up, ditto with the goal in game 7 against Boston, when the player slid into him. He should have stood up and stopped the puck, or at least made an attempt. He isn't the ref and should wait until he hears the whistle or it is clear that it has been blown before relaxing. He simply does not have the psyche to win when he needs to. He was okay in the Olympics not great. Canada won in spite of him, not because of him.
I hated his contract when he signed it and hate it even more, we are saddled with a loser, at least that is what I will believe until he proves me wrong.

Anyway.. it's always nice to hear personal accountability like that, whether he's right or not. I don't really think Luongo would be getting heat if he made the same comments.
He's right that it's inexcusable that we didn't win. On paper it was one sided but our star players couldn't it done. We'll see if the Sedins pick it up in the key playoff games but I do have my doubts with Sedins and Luongo in big key games.

Nope it's inexcusable. Hank Sedins with 1 point and Daniel with 4 points in the Stanley cup finals!!!! those are or star players that had a combine 5 points in 7 games for the cup?.... A one legged Kesler match Hanks point production, Sedins better be accepting the accountability cause their play was not acceptable if they want to win a cup.

One thing I wont blame on Luongo is that year we lost to the Ducks. Luongo was a beast and played out of his mind and was the reason we got that far, we were clearly over matched and were relying on our goalie, Luongo shouldn't be faulted for that season.

Just out of curiosity, how does a champion play? Semantics mean nothing. The reality is the Sedins, along with the rest of the Canucks, were good enough to make it to game 7 of the finals. Whether you, or the rest of the world, accept it or not, they proved they have a high level of winning pedigree.

People need to try to move on already. The Canucks can't go back in time and play the series again. What's done is done.

Yet lose to a team that should've been a notch below that Canucks team. 5 points from the twins in the SCF is not acceptable. The #1 offensive team of the season had a hard time scoring in the playoffs and Luongo had too many nights off. How does a Champion play?... go ask Boston, Hawks, Wings, Ducks and Pens, Canucks aren't a champion team yet.

No, they proved that sooner or later they will always fail.

Yup, and they are failures now. Can't change that unless they win.

Sedins have always been accountable. It's why they continue to get better. Hopefully they can take it another step forward in the playoffs.

Wow. That made no sense on like, a cosmic level.


I still can't believe I read a poster saying that the Stanley Cup has "nothing to do with Tim Thomas."

That's exactly why you roll 4 lines. The playoffs are the time of year when the role players need to step up and contribute more.

wuts incredibly frustrating is who they lost to....boston is a team of slow scrubs, only moderately skilled (< top 8 in the league in pure skill), full of slow dmen, average forwards....the only thing they had was brute physicality and more importantly a super hot goalie. If it wasn't for soft goaltending from our team, they would have been no chance.

Serge2k...dude...nobody's happy about losing in the Finals. Okay?

If you're convinced the Canucks will always fail, why are you here? There are more than enough people telling us that every day on this site. We don't need one more.

You need some more time off.

The Bruins were like the Preds except with an even hotter goalie and forward depth. The Sedins were shut down by both teams, except Kesler was able to pick up the slack in the Nashville series. That didn't happen against Boston.

Canucks should be in the finals again next year... we will get it right this time. Who's in the West that has improved enough to challenge us?

I forgot who said it, but the quote was there are 3 seasons in hockey. Regular season, playoffs, and the Stanley Cup Finals. Hopefully they will learn that they need that extra extra gear to get the Cup this year.

It's in threads where troll posts are quoted over and over again that reminds me how great the ignore function is.

Serious question: If they're such failures and it's painful to watch and so forth, why are you even a fan of this team then?

I can't tell you exactly how; but I can say champions don't take 38 shots on goal in game 7 for the Cup at home without scoring a goal. They also don't only yield 20 shots and have 3 go through.

They don't collapse everytime they go on the road in the Finals. They don't lose that game 6 in Boston.

I believe they can be champions one day. Just couldn't put it all together this year.

Throw whatever you need to say out there. I've learnt it's nearly impossible to argue opinion on these boards. It's too objective that neither party will really budge at all.

On a somewhat related note, I've only ever ignored one person from this sub-forum ever. I forget his name, but he was pretty much the most ignorant poster I had ever come across. Today, I had to add serge2k to the list. His crap is getting old, and one can only wonder if his days are numbered as well.

Too bad, I enjoy talking to my brothers here and discussing this game I love. More opinions, the better IMO. Some people just can't keep it together though.
