Hurts less. Still sucks.

What a disappointing way to end your season but I guess now they will have more time to condition and gel together. Hopefully Gillis can make some meaningful signing. Our goalies can held their heads up high but hopefully our forwards and defencemen will work hard to redeem themselves next year..

The better team won.

Those missed chances by Dank were killer.

No secondary scoring.

Congratulations to the LA Kings.

Well that's all she wrote.

We lost to a better team, and did not deserve to win that series.

Fucking sucks.

Kesler, Edler, Raymond and Hamhuis were all pretty awful. Hamhuis didn't have his stabalizing presence back there. The forwards offered no support. The Sedins cannot play in their own zone and there is no chance of a goal in the bottom half of the lineup.

Gillis has some work to do over the summer.

The team said all season long the playoffs were what mattered. Well this team choked hard.

The team said at the deadline they needed to be ready for "playoff hockey" and "close games". They couldn't win 2 games.

Tough questions and a lot of time to answer them. Ultimately this team is obviously not good enough.

Canucks got exactly what they deserved. They came into this playoffs with precisely the wrong attitude. All this nonsense about a long run and their vaunted playoff experience. They got bitchslapped by a more confident, better prepared and assertive team. Last season's Cup Final loss was devastating. I still run what if scenarios in my head. But this year, I wish they hadn't lost of course, but I can't say I'm devastated. If only the Caps had beat the Bruins. This would be easier.

I predict AV is gone, excellent coach but I do think they need a new voice. He turned the room over to the team and they didn't carry out their task. The other big move, obviously, is the goalie situation. I want Gillis to look for more of a stud D.

Let the trade/move speculation really begin now!

Well on to Game of Thrones.

What a disapointement. All i can say is we better only have 1 starting goalie next year, whatever piece either one could have gotten us sure could have helped.

I can't belive how badly our second line did offensively...

We might if he was actually decent. But he is a garbage player that shouldn't even be in the league. 2.5 million for the worlds softest player

After all the Blame Raymond smoke has cleared its time for Gillis to take a bow. Cause he is the one who has to stand trial for this debacle

Don't know if that's true. They weren't good enough to beat the Kings this time, but every year is a crap shoot.

No, the team who played better won. I will never concede that the Kings are the better team, but they played better than Vancouver and that's why they're through. It took the first two games for Vancouver to wake up, and then by that time it was desperation mode and the boys couldn't get back into sync.

If they were going to lose out this year, better in the 1st round and have a longer off-season with some harder soul-searching than losing again in the SCF and dealing with a bunch who think they're still close and not have enough time to heal up for the next season.

Hope Kesler gets some extra surgery because his hip still isn't what it used to be. Hope Gillis takes a hard look at where the league is going (circa late 70s) and takes serious steps to mold the team to adapt to where the league is going vice where it says it's going.

Oh well, the Kings get to look forward to the Blues. Hope Backes violently introduces his stick to the back of Brown's neck in game one. If ever there was an impunitive fuck more deserving of some career threatening violence, it's that puke.

Guess I'll cheer for Ottawa the rest of the playoffs.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.
