How long does this series go?

Postby rockalt » Mon Apr 16, 2012 6:47 am

In light of the crushing game 3 defeat where the Canucks couldn't muster a single goal (RD you must feel pretty vindicated right now) despite playing their best game of the series by a wide margin, I ask you fellow fans how long you think this series will last?

Logic would dictate that we're done in 4 or 5 max. Personally 5 seems a befitting fortune for the success-starved Canucks fans. Just seems typical of the team to make you start believing only to collapse when you're on the verge of success.

Anti-Canuck nation is laughing it's respective asses off right.

We'll be the ones laughing our asses off when the Canucks take this series in 7.

Book it. :mex:

The Kings have two four game losing streaks this year.

Never stop believing until they've been officially eliminated.

I'm in for 2 Canucks wins right now, a sweep would be a total desaster even without Dannyboy.

Didn't we finish the season 8-2 without DS? Yea, we missed him this series, but where the fuck was the rest of the team this post season?

To win the Canucks need to show heart and get to the front of the net to make life miserable for Quick.

Canucks don't do that, they barely have done it over the past season or 2. They play a skating perimeter style of play that looks good in the regular season but once the playoffs starts it is easy to defend when you play the same team for 4 games.

This is why AV has to go, he is a one trick pony, 3 seasons ago it was the trap, now it is all skate and no action. The Canucks may win 1 but they already quit and probably are already looking at cheap hotels in Vegas or Hawaii.

Yeah, it would be complete disaster for a President's Cup winning team to get swept by an 8th seed. If there's anything good in this, there's 3 days until the next game. This gives the Nucks a chance to find their game and hopefully Quick and the Kings will cool off a bit. Hopefully the Nucks will win at least 1-2 games to make it respectable.

I originally thot the Canucks would win in 6 games, but I was always a bit leery of those Cali tames (LA & San Jose), I wanted to play phoenix/dallas most. Guess it doesn't matter now, we get what we get and the Nucks can mostly blame themselves for the poor results.

I'm taking part of the blame on me because i grew a playoff beard weeks before the playoffs started.
The playoffs are starting now, i blanked my face again a few hours ago to let grow a real playoff beard.
Believe, my mind is saying 2 wins but my heart wants 4, i just read Dannyboy travelled to LA.

In a previous thread I outlined a few ref's that consistently call against Van.

The original thread here at the corner was here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9291&start=255
The source I quoted from CDC - http://forum.canucks.com/topic/327389-t ... ge__st__60

Bottom line, the CDC poster identified several officials that have a tendency, in the poster's mind, to call more against the Canucks than average. The refs were: O'Rourke, O'Hallaran, Peel, Walsh, Watson, Sutherland, Kozari, Joanette and Leggo.

As an update
Game 1 - Officials: Paul Devorski, Dan O'Rourke - 8 penalities, Bitz's 5+game earned for being a dumb ass.
Game 2 - Officials: Chris Lee, Wes McCauley - 7 penalties, two of them 10 min misconducts ending Hansen & Lappy participation
Game 3 - Officials: Sutherland and Polloc - 9 penalties assessed for 23 min against.
Game 4 - Officials" ???? dunno yet, can't find source

So thus far we seem to be hit/miss on getting these "identified" refs. What isn't hit or miss is the amount of penalties we are being assessed (including 3 delay of games). So the question is - is there a consistent bias playing out against the Canucks (the conspiracy) or are we really playing this far outside the rules?


I for one am not sure but invite comment by those who've followed this more than I have.

The simple answer to this question is really based on how long will it be before our next Edler-like gaffe or turn-over? All of the dominance in the world means dick, if we continue to provide them with opportunities off of our mistakes - lack of coverage, turning the puck over for two short handed goals in one fuckin game, failing to cover rebounds off our net-minder, etc. Quick has been amazing, we need bodies in front of him... it's not rocket science - a tip, a rebound, a shove. by bodies in front who are prepared to pay the price for being there. Shots from the outside are meaningless. I don't believe that Dank's presence would have changed the outcome of any of the games thus far... unless maybe Edler feels more secure/confident with Dank in the line-up??

Having said all of this, I would be somewhat pleased to see us take at least 2 games in this series. IF we went to game 7, could you imagine how 'manic-like' we would all be!? Jeeezus

It's tough to really say:

To be quite frank - the Canucks have actually outplayed the Kings over the past 2 games in my opinion. Assuming that the Canucks keep up that level of play, and somehow find ways to score, there's no reason to believe that we can't come from behind:

Is it likely? Probably not. Is it possible? I think so.

Personally - I think LA will take it in 4,5, or 6 but lets hope I'm wrong.

If it goes to a Game 7, I think the Canucks will win.
