This ride doesn't look like it's going to end any time before the Olympic break. Frankly, no guarantees they'll start off any better afterwards. My hope is that both twins break a collarbone or a foot bone and take the rest of the season off. The team couldn't possibly be worse with them on IR.

Fuck Lack, I don't deserve this.
No shit. He was the only Canuck to show up tonight.
This was the most pathetic, vomit-inducing, embarrassing, pussy-shit effort I have seen out of the Canucks since I can't even remember. I need to see an expert to explain why I stuck around to watch it to it's lame-wristed conclusion.
They didn't play to win. They didn't play to even score a fucking goal. They didn't play for each other. They didn't play for their coach. They played to not get scored on (yup, couldn't even get that one right, though Lack did his best) and to fuck with the offense.
They played to look like they gave an effort out there. Make a pass, but put too much or take just enough off it that the pass will get blocked or go out of reach of a teammate. When in doubt, whack it somewhere in the vicinity of a teammate where it will get picked off or meander harmlessly to the boards. If, God forbid, you should find yourself in a scoring position, put it right into his pads if you can't lift your shot into the goalie's crest. Make plays that look like plays, but are really half-hearted attempts to insult the fans' collective intelligence. As long as the score is close, it's not too painful or embarrassing and everyone can just shrug their shoulders and mumble something about 'puck luck' and 'fighting through it' or some other lame-ass cop-out.
They didn't try out there - they just tried to look like they were before the Olympians get to risk injury for the privilege of playing on a real team while the rest of the blue-green fecal matter stinks up some tropical locale.
What a fucking rip-off.
Please fucking tell me that Weise was just the first turd pebble to start an organization-changing shit-slide over the cliff to bury this miserable fuck-the-fan-up-the-ass season.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.
Hate the League.
