right back at you baby, but really what will one or 2 wins do?

This team talks the talk all season long but now I think they drank their own koolaid too much and just expected to win.

Do I want a win, of course, I want 16 of them, will I watch the game, again of course wearing my luck pajamas and practising every lucky charm I know.

As I'm sure most of you are as well, I am very eagerly anticipating the answer to that question. I'd say it is likely the biggest starting goaltender decision in the history of the franchise - not so much for the effect on the team's playoff success this year but for the message it will send.

I'm happy to have either guy in net and I'm happy to have either guy here long-term.

..it's like Canuck fans think there isn't another team out there or something.



We went to the finals last spring.

We won the Presidents trophy again.

Detroit has lost in the first round after finishing first overall.

The Pens are down 3-0 as well after being annointed future Cup champions by many NHL pundits.

Shit fricking happens man.
A different goddamn hockey talk messageboard!

I see you're still replacing mattresses on a regular basis.

If anyone lack anything here it's some mental fortitude, you always go to the rebuild card as soon as things don't work out. Just before last season you were calling for AV's head and urging a rebuild.

Carry on my friend.

3-0 lead is the worst lead in hockey.

Ok, I've switched things up with a darker avatar. The old one got 15 wins, but not the most critical one. I'm hoping the new one can get us this one tonight. Not much to ask, is it?

Of course they did win that game seven versus Chicago. At that point that was certainly 'the most critical one'. Perhaps the Canucks have it in them to win this without anything we do or think?

I still believe in the WTF.

But if dhabums is the new WTF then so be it.

I'm sporting ZERO Canuck gear today.

Zero as in nothing, nadda, zip, fuck-all.

I will be alternating between unyielding positivity and depressive negativity the whole day transitioning into extreme anxiousness come game time.

If there is anyone that can come back from a 3-0 deficit, it's gotta be our boys. They showed their gumption last spring and I can't think of a logical reason why they can't win 4 straight. The Canucks winning 4 straight is just as unlikely as the Kings winning 3 straight.

As the Kings have already done the impossible, one can conclude that the natural laws of the universe do not apply right now and the Canucks are define their own laws.

There may be a logical fallacy in my argument but fuck it.

Believe in Blue.

WTF - what ever lets you sleep at night.

WTF - yes I have never like AV because of how he manages his players.

WTF

WTF - there I said it 3 times and the good witch of the east just visited me and promised at least a game 6 so my friends put $10 down on Canucks and you should get a good return?

WTF - is that better
