This shooting from outside strategy is never going to work.

We go no one driving to the net or going to the dirty area. Raymond and his circling the puck around perimeter is snooze fest

I'm not sure anymore if this team is lacking desire and jump becaus this is 3rd game in 4th night and also because they dont' really care about playoff seeding; this is looking more like the team just runs out of any offensive creativity.

shit, another goal, can we say this game is done?

4 checking line team is not working so well, AV. get something done.

It's been a while since I really enjoyed a Canucks game.

I'm really just holding on here hoping that they are just not interested in the regular season, because quite frankly it seems that every team has their number and knows how to play them in order to shut them down.....and the Canucks have no answer.

The PP also looks the same.....EVERY TIME.

The Avs are playing it high and boxing us out pretty badly

Well playoff seeding only matters to one team tonight, and that's the team trying to get in... the Canucks are guaranteed a top-3 finish.

I like this team-based response to cheap-shots being thrown at our players. Fuck the refs. If these guys want to jump, leap, go high on our players, I've been WAITING for months to see the team respond. Enough of waiting for the refs/league to protect our players. Yeah, our PP is good, but we'll forego one to make a point. Love it.

Sure seems like since the deadline they've had this attitude, wonder why that is...

First Raymond makes a pass that is 6 feet behind Hamhuis (who would have been in all alone on Varlamov). Then Raymond has a clear look at the net on a setup from Hamhuis (who recovered the puck quickly and made a nice play), but MayRay puts it STRAIGHT INTO VARLAMOV. At least make him reach for it. I'm actually happier when he misses the net because at least the goalie had to move to make the save.

Can we bench #21 yet?

Figures. :roll:

But that is what happens when you lift the puck and look for a corner.

Nah I still want him gone after this season.

That's how you get a goal damn it! Nice play by the AMEX line that leads to a beautiful goal by Higgins
