The Canucks have what it takes to win the series but they could've been in the drivers seat by now.

If you think this team has what it takes to go all the way then at the very least they've made it that much harder to take the first step.


A hot goalie is a hot goalie...I said it before...if you actually play/played the game you might understand...I really do think the pressure is on LA now...win it at home...AV got us to game 7 of the Final last year and I have faith that they can do it again...although some losers think they are done...it's the playoffs baby.... 8-)

Gotta admit though the Kings are hustling to the puck...defensively...we still have more talent....



As an outsider - I see the teams being pretty equal in talent. Daniel will make a difference - but you are up against a very fast, agressive, talented team. The LA defence and goaltending is great. Yes - the Canucks generated a bit more offence in the 2nd and some of the 3rd periods, but the LA defence was equal to the task. Also, the LA forwards are pretty damn good.

Well, this totally sucks, of course, but if we take game 3, we all know, momentum shifts. Not saying I'm optimistic, but got to hold out hope...game 3 it is, do or die boys.

Hockey Widow, you're absolutely right about the Kings looking well-coached and playing consistently within their system. Two things the Canucks should be doing, but cannot. Kesler looks back on track, and thank God for that, and Henrik's trying, but ultimately no one sees each other well enough, no one is taking control of the play. You can see where I'm going with this.....

FIRE AV!!

God, I hate myself.

Ya I agree this series is not over and won't be until someone wins 4 games, its just the lack of confidence this year in the team. Even when we headed to game 7 against Boston I believed we would win it. I just don't have that feeling this year. But it ain't over until it is over and I will be cheering them on.

I like the LA team, I really like what they have built there.

As an aside, I imagine the Pens are not feeling too good about themselves right now either.

I'm holding onto the belief that this clusterfuck will be fixed when Dank comes back.

Our power play is going start clicking again and our line ups will be complete.

The SSB line will be terrorizing the Kings while the Amex line beats up the King defense.

That's what was happening in January and I have to believe that it's still there.

This baby is going 7.

I have no faith in this team or its coaching staff. We have watched them play this kind of beer league calibre hockey for almost 2 months. Yes there have been some explosions on the scoreboard, yes there have been nights where the PP clicked, but since the all-star break we have seen a steady decline in this team's performance outside of the crease.

Every opponent we have faced has read our mail. They have known our playbook at least as well as our own players and they have setup accordingly. To this point our coaching staff has added NOTHING to that playbook to throw the other team off even an iota. Our defensemen turn the puck over almost every time they get pressured down low in our end. Our wingers try these weak chip passes out to the slot that don't have enough mustard on them to make a worthwhile hotdog, our penalty kill lets the other PP setup and then tries to contain them outside. Nothing is working there.

On offense our wingers get in each other's way, the point men can't handle a pass even if the forwards give them a good one, our shots don't get through, our weakside support is non-existant, the defense gets to every puck first, our dump and chase game is too slow and we enter the zone with all the speed of a wheel chair going up a ramp.

Our goaltending has been nothing short of stellar. Even despite Luongo's regular season gaffs, the President's Trophy should not read Vancouver Canucks 2011-2012, it should read Cory Schneider/Roberto Luongo 2011-2012.

Luongo has looked nothing but dialed in in the first two games, and the team in front of him can't even put it together for him. If these losers could give him a 2 point lead to work with he looks ready to win 16 games for them. I would say 1 goal would be enough but with the officiating and retarded players on this team we are bound to give up a goal while being down 2 men or in the box for 5 minutes.

Edler should sit and Rome should play. There it is, I said it. Edler is lost. He's slow, he's unfocused, he can't pass, he can't shoot, he can't hit, and we know he won't fight. Sit him, he's hurting us on the ice more than he's going to ever help us at this rate.

Hansen doesn't gel with Burrows and Hank. The whole time Henrik was controlling the puck he had nowhere to go and Burrows was scrambling to find room because Hansen just stood on the top of the crease and plugged up the entire slot. Nothing was finding its way anywhere but into the corner or under Quick for a whistle. He's playing hard, but just doens't fit that bill.

The Amex line showed up tonight. Kesler woke up, no finish though. Booth is a beast, no finish though.....and he can't pass in tight. Higgins was strong tonight, no finish though.

Officiating is on crack. No issue with what they called, it's how they have called it.

Snow shower on Quick = 2 minutes in game 1.
Snow shower on Luongo = Referee's laughing in game 2.
4 players crash the into the corner, sticks and elbows everywhere = 2 minutes for Kesler while the Canucks have momentum.
Henrik dumped on top of Quick by LA, scrum ensues = Kings powerplay.

This team is garbage right now and the league seems more than happy to take us out and dump us.


Kings in 4. And I'm not even joking.

It's a long shot that Daniel can come back & tip the scales, but....a better one than expecting AV to come up with new & brilliant scheme. Win or lose - I don't want to rush Daniel.

The officials didn't cost us either game. The Canucks got outplayed, fair & square.

This series goes 7. This team needs to show some character and gut a couple out in LA to make it happen. Lou has made some outstanding saves the first 2 games, but has been swimming on a couple of goals. Put Schneids in - Lou isn't our main problem but the team plays diffently in front of Schneids. Need to try it.

And please, please, AV, PLAY LAPPY WITH HANK AND BURR. He grinds and adds an element of nastiness needed against the LA defense. Do it.

Bear in mind the mighty Pens are in the same boat as us -- and allowed 8 goals. Giroux with a seven point night. So we won't be the only ones having nightmares tonight.
