Other than I watch each and every game each and every year. You kind of nailed it dude. But not really, if you change the word canucks to Hockey...it describes me better. But make no mistake about the level of my canuck loyalty..

OK. I feel a lot better now. I thought it was only being picked up by people wearing those fancy tinfoil receivers on their heads.

I haven't watched professional wrestling since they changed the F to an E
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

What makes it tough to tank is seeing Henrik Sedin, the teams captain, playing through pain to help this team win no matter what, as he really wants to help the team get into the playoffs, always believes and gives it his all for the Canucks.

Hopefully the team sees that and get inspired to help their captain, their team fight on.

What is the team exactly capable of doing here ? They are a bubble team with no injuries and a lottery team when they get some guys hurt . There isn't enough depth or talent that can chip in when injuries happen . Or are you expecting management to acquire a bandaid veteran(s) so the team can limp into the playoffs and get bootfucked like last year ?

I don't cheer for Vancouver to lose. I cheer for the other Pacific teams to win .

Yeah this team is not playing well, and have had a lackluster showing, having said that, one has to take into account all the injuries various players this team has had this season, early in the season when the team was healthy we actually played pretty good even beating the cali teams in that cali run.

Having Sutter in and playing well enabled Horvat to play a more comfortable role and that subsequently helped every line.

Defense though is a different beast, hamhuis seemed hurt all season, not the same dman as we know from previous seasons. Yeah you hate Sbisa, but he's effective in spurts, adds that Pedan physicality.

Anyways like I said I want to tank, but you feel for Henrik, he gives it all, the sedins know they probably only got 2 or 3 more years left with the Canucks, in my opinion with the right support they got one good Cup run left in them.

I agree with your sentiments regarding Henry . He is a warrior and sure it would be good to see them go on a run while the twins are still here . It's possible if Ignitowski can hit a home run at the draft table and a couple other young guys exceed expectations . Stop signing dumb contracts and it could happen .

As an asside Virtanen looks like he is five years away from making an impact in the NHL .

Kevin Connauton and a 2nd round draft pick for Derek Roy

Think we could use Connauton right now? Nice work Gillis

A 2nd round pick and a 3rd round pick for stone hands Bernier

And then Bernier, a first round pick and Grabner (former 1st round pick by the Canucks) for Buyout Ballard

Yeah if only we had Kevin Connauton here to swoop in and save the day.

Clendening for Forsling, now there's a smart trade.
