Rock Bottom GDT: Canucks vs Flames - 19:00PST - HNIC

Postby Meds » Sat Mar 08, 2014 10:02 am

Do we even dare call this a "must win"?

I don't expect much out of this group at this point. Nor should we. The writing was on the wall and too many people were in denial, myself included sometimes, but nothing was done. I really don't think the Canucks are a team that can beat the Flames right now. Calgary works too hard and never quits. Maybe this humbling is what the Canucks needed.

Regardless, we are down to a month of hockey left to play and then this debacle of a season is mercifully over.

Go Canucks?

Lineups at morning skate:

Higgins - Kesler - Jensen
Burrows - Henrik - Hansen
Sestito - Matthias - Booth
Archibald - Schroeder - Dalpe

I don't care how atrocious Jensen might play defensively etc, he should stay the rest of the season due to how horrible our offense has been.

This season is a write off so Jensen MUST play as many fucking minutes as possible.

I don't care how badly he plays or how shitty he looks. In order for the Canucks to have any positive future, our prospects must play and play big minutes.

Mistakes will happen, no doubt about that. And then we'll see what Lack and Markstrom are made off.

Handing the #1 job to Lack in his first fucking NHL season was rather shitty of the organization. But it is.. what it is.

Definitely in the "Must lose for the BadforEkblad crowd". More out of necessity rather than choice. Time to tank and see if we can get a better chance in the lottery.

I may watch tonight though as I would like to see how Jensen does given the reports that he has been playing very well of late.

I can't believe the team is still within striking distance of a wild card spot. Not that they've shown signs of being able to string together 3 measly wins in a row, but that's about all it will take to give them a fighting chance.

Well that period was probably the best Ive seen them play in a while. Oh right, they're playing the Flames.

I can't help it. I'm still cheering for them to win and hopefully make the playoffs. Hard to believe with the OOTS, a win tonight and we still have life.
