Oh Burr, why would you lay a pass like that into Ballard's feet when you're both skating towards each other in your own zone? Dude had no chance.

Who were the scouts that rated Barker that highly? He is not even an AHL defenceman.

Meds, what are the alternatives? Barker with Alberts?

While I'm typing and giving Ballard some credit tonight, he combines with Burrows to screw up and it's in our net.

How many games now is this where we've watched the Canucks play the majority of their game trying to get the puck out?

Is it the players or is the "system" just ineffective against hard forechecking and aggressive attackers?

Considering AV put Ballard on almost immediately, I think there's culpability on both Burr and Ballard.

Nobody is having a good game including Schneider who looks completely out of sorts.

Sorry, never mind.

Geezes fucking christ man. These are your Canucks at their absolute worst. I'd love to say, forget this one and move on but this is really fucking bad... :drink:

No. You don't criticize the Sedins. It's an unwritten law. I used to break it on the old site, got ripped for it. :roll:

Personally I think that the coach(es) has to take responsibility here. The Twins are great players, but the aren't effective right now. A good coach, worth his salt, can get players to shoot and take advantage of golden opportunities rather than just passing endlessly in an attempt to make the pretty play that fools everyone and look so smart. If a regular player doesn't respond to a coach, and they still aren't scoring, then generally the player is moved. If it is a star player, then generally the coach is moved. Neither has happened here. So in this, I will defer to RD and point the finger at Gillis as well as Vigneault and the Sedins. But I will still fault Vigneault and Gillis more than the players. Vigneault for not holding EVERY player accountable and making them earn their minutes. Gillis for not axing Vigneault.

These are the Canucks as they have been ALL SEASON LONG. The difference has been the goaltending of Roberto Luongo, first, and then Cory Schneider. Tonight they didn't get the goaltending. This is what happens. Every night this year where they have not gotten all-star goaltending the Canucks have looked worse than the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames.

Obviously it's very hard to win when you aren't getting any shots on net, but when you are getting 37+ shots through and only scoring one goal.....something is very wrong.

3 of the goals that Dallas scored Cory gets a pass on. 2 of them he could have had. Doesn't matter. His team is only scoring 1 goal.

I don't know what is worse - Booth's 1 empty net goal in 11 games or Kassian's 1 goal in his last 27 games. But if I'm a bettin' man, odds are, Meds thinks this is AV's fault.

OK, lets' call a spade a spade - Keith Ballard is shite! But according to folklore, AV could be the catalyst to this.

Schneider shat the bed tonight, but maybe, just maybe this isn't Cory's fault and that AV fucked this up by not starting Luongo instead.

Is it me, or do other teams continue to have a field day with the Sedins without any retribution? I should ask Meds if this is AV's fault. Odds are, it is.

I wonder if Luggage Eyes will sign another big named left shot defenseman this off-season.
