...this effort in Nashville tonight is a good sign, right?
Heading into Detroit the Canucks were breathing a sigh of relief that Datsuyk wasn't going to be available on Thursday and that got them thinking ahead of themselves. Right?
The Sedins, Burrows and Kesler were tired after those two exhausting games against those power house Leafs and Oilers. Right?
I don't actually think there's a team in the league that can play with the Canucks, the healthy Canucks, on a game by game basis.
But these guys are fuckin' lazy and complacent.
If this doesn't get turned around soon, by which I don't mean next month, a solid opponent will take them out of the playoffs in the first round.
You read it here first.

They play like somnambulists for several weeks even though they win most of the time, then along come a couple of senior AHL squads and they wake up and look like world beaters then they fall back into their comatose state as soon as a team capable of playing them hard shows up.
Which is the reverse of what we got used to over the past several years. They'd play good teams hard, win or lose, then fall apart against the also rans.
You think they've got a switch? I don't. I think they're in grave danger of falling into a pattern they won't be able to break out of when they need to in just over a month.
And with a bit of luck I could be 6 foot 3.
