Tom has been much improved, I'll give him that. He's gone from ECHL quality player to perhaps an AHL player.

I used to live my life as a Canucks fan getting high or low depending on whether or not the team was winning or losing. That went away for me in 2011. That low was too low and I can't do that anymore. Now able to watch the games from an entertainment standpoint rather than the standpoint of OMG I get heartburn from my anxiety attacks when the team plays.

Fingers are still crossed that Anaheim has a massive regression. SJS and LA were enough in this division without them being awesome too.

Watching SN they said that 10 of our losses have come after we blew third period leads. That's losing 10 points we could not protect. Those 10 points put us in the top 3 of the league (take 2 away from Anaheim since they were one of the losses) suddenly we have 65 points, tied with St. Louis, 2 behind Chicago and Anaheim. Now I haven't bothered adjusting downward the teams we gave those points to, except one game to Anaheim.

Point is Torts is right. If we don't find a way to fix this situation we will not go deep. Bieksa said it best when he said it becomes contagious. It gets in your head. You dig yourself out one game at a time until that becomes contagious.

We all got kicked hard in 2011... I am not sure the same level of fanatasim can ever be garnered again...I too don't take it as personal and deep as I once did..

But and I will call you a lier if you deny this.

Kane to van
Another big trade
Kids all step in a step up...we get elite once more..guess what....I am in full steam and so would you and everyone else (cept Donny maybe)..2011...what's that. That's what I hope and wait for. 82-94-11...14?-15? Who knows...but the canucks are our team and byfuck I am going to cheer for them come hell or like Calgary..high water

Like you said, we took the best in the east to a shootout (for the second time this season, I might add). Not to mention, we lost with 0.6 seconds left in OT to the best in the west Ducks who have been absolutely on fire to boot.

We are a beat up team and playing through a bit of a slump. Earning points against the best teams in the league is nothing to pout about, IMO.
Wow. Last night was one of the worst collapses I've seen in years by the Canucks. And you're happy?

Yes, we're dinged up. But last night was inexcusable as was Sunday.

Yup, but then again I'm more of a big picture kind of guy and don't think there's much to get up in arms about back-to-back shootout losses to two of the best teams in the league with our rookie backup goalie (who is playing better than anybody imagined he would) and some pretty key guys on the IR (not to mention an injured Hank).

Like I said earlier, taking this thing to OT after the second period would have been seen as a small victory by most.

Yes, the blown leads and close losses must be fixed.

But then again great teams like the Pens likely deem blowing 2-0 leads "inexcusable" as well. Don't forget earlier on this year there was a stretch where the Canucks were winning games in come-from-behind fashion seemingly every night. The Canucks are not the only team to "blow leads".

This team is built for a first round exit. That's the big picture.

They will probably not get past the several excellent teams in this conference...I'm supposed to get up in arms about this at this point in the season?
