really? How are they possibly any worse than any other team or canucks fans for that matter??? Thats a bullshit excuse. Rypien will likely be suspended indefinitely tomorrow and recieve something like 10-15. He absolutely lost it. Sucker punch, Linesman, needing to be restraint by team mates and touching a fan... I have always been a huge supporter of his, i think he shows a lot more skill at times than a lot of people think. But this was a disgrace, when or if he returns he better have his head on straight. Don't get me wrong though, a clear headed Rypien is very good for this hockey team.
Also i definitely agree that its super early still and burrows isn't in the line up. But some things need to change. I have always been on the AV band wagon. But i have a feeling that if he doesn't get an amazing result this year in the playoffs he might be done ala Ron Wilson in San Jose. But if this early season theme keeps up he could be done sooner.
I really don't think its the end of the world, the canucks have a huge game tomorrow night against the hawks and i think its very possible that they were looking ahead with a "weak" minnesota team in front of them. A team that just got torn apart by their coach. It was expected that they would play a very solid game tonight. Hopefully tomorrow will be a different story.

They can give all of the attention to RR they what, if it takes it off them and their terrible effort then mission accomplished but the team has a lot to answer for imho.

Thats garbage, so what are you saying any game that a team gets blown out, the team losing should snap and become total morons. As i said before i am a huge Rypien fan. It's frustrating to see this happen, but this is inexcusable. These guys are professionals. It wasn't their night, as i said before it wasn't a game going to be in the canucks favour. Maybe that early goal also made them think they were off the hook. You have bad games. Review the tapes and play better. You don't lose it and let your emotions boil over. This team knows they are better than that and they have to be much better than that if they want a chance to win this season.
We also pay him a lot of money to do that. Usually Rypien just fights > wins > moves on. He lost control and has to pay for it.
