I think AV would put Edler out three times for each shootout if he could.

We're 6 games into a season after a lockout. Not sure how anyone could truly be evaluated thus far.

After 6 games last season, Vancouver had one less point and had been shutout twice.

For shits and giggles I found some comments from last year's 6th regular season game GDT..

"I think every game counts when you're in the western conference. Teams are stronger and there are no gimmes. Do we want to be like Chicago last year? 97 pts. and hoping for someone to lose to sneak in the 8th spot?

On the bright side... hey how bout them d-men? Specially the KB twins eh wot?

Bingo, Bango, Bongo, 4uongo, Hammer & Edler is a -3go in one period. Manny now -4, KB3 now -4, KB4 now -5. Dare I mention Roberto's save percentage?"

Edler.

Just remember folks, I'm happy to be wrong, but at season's end, if/when Edler is still playing like this, look no further than me to hear a, "I told ya so."

Ture, but the same can be said for every team.

There are no excuses to be had because every team was/is in the same boat. This team stinks right now and a shake up is needed badly. Luongo being traded is not that shake up anymore because everyone has known it to be coming since last April. I've got two whipping boys on this team, Vigneault and Edler. Take your pick, one of them being shipped out would do it. This team needs a fire lit under their collective ass and Vigneault just isn't the guy to do that.

Yeah, yeah. But right now we are seeing the exact same shit we have seen at the start of every season, and, with the exception of 2010/11, we are, it is the same shit we saw to end every season. Blown leads, shit turnovers, great goaltending, no-show-forwards, held to the outside, giving up easy shots, slumping PP, average PK, stupid penalties, lack of intensity, one-dimensional approach, zero adjustment or adaptation to opponents, lousy breakout. It's just too predictable.

Dear Canucks.

I've read this particular chapter (the 2-0 lead followed by blowing the lead, going to OT, and losing in the SO) several times this season already - no need to keep re-reading this chapter.

Sincerely,
S_C

When we get the rest back we will once again dominate. Fuck the President's trophy. I want the Cup this year, but we need Kes to be Kes so whenever it happens is good as long as we make the dance. Still think we could have got a ton for Kes a year ago. Now, not so much and I tire of his diving. It is a punk way to play the game.

Earth to Sedins, Come in Sedins

We need more Janik Hansens. Has Hansen not elevated his game or what? Looks great!

I see Schroeder is now on the AV clock. Benched near the end of the 3rd period last night. How long do we give him until he's on the red eye to that great developmental team the Chicago Wolves

I see AV had his favorite son, Malhotra back in the line-up

I'm confused, what is Weise's role with this team, he fights like Trevor Linden, like Donald Brashear he somehow thinks he actually has top 9 forward skill. What is the deal? Is he just another AV guy

I see we are now blaming Edler for Garrison's nonchalant terrible play. "BLAME EDLER!" BLAME RAYMOND!"

It's quite simple, our offense, our Defense, Edler has not been the same since Erhoff has left. I'd subtract Ballard and Garrison's contract for an Erhoff contract any day of the week.

So, I see the "no worry boys, the season is still early" posters are out in droves right now. Um, yeah, it's a shortened season, the race to the playoffs started at the drop of the puck at the first game of the season.

I still have more confidence in Luongo than I do Schneider. Luongo was our best player last night.

No worry boys, the season is still early (smile).

When you are fully expecting a start like this, it really doesn't bother you.

The Canucks have 13 forwards on the roster. One of them is Manny Malhotra, another is Andrew Ebbett.

The Canucks will necessarily dress at least one of them each game.

In RoyalDude's world, that's what you call a good problem to have.

LOL...and you expect this change when we have a healthy line-up? My god dbr, as long as AV is here, Malhotra gets right of passage.

I thought there would be way more sheet soakers in here after a 2-2-2 start. This is impressive. Then again this place doesn't get the traffic of HFboards or CDC.....thank god for that .
