You really think the team is made up of, and ran by, a bunch of heartless, apathetic, pussies who are just waiting to be told to call it in? Why would you bother wasting your time as a fan cheering for such a team?
I don't think any players purposefully "tank", but I don't think the Canucks have the roster players to compete with "good teams". With Kesler and Daniel out, I think the writing is on the wall for this season, and that's coming out in the body language and motivation of some players.

Win or lose we try as a team. When one of us is down the others pick us up. We all have down days or games or months or seasons but buck up my friend
Sure. Right now the Canucks are like that once-strong beer league team that has lost a couple of their best players due to their old ladies having kids. Hockey is still fun, but you go to the rink knowing you're probably going to lose. That affects the psyche...
