Plus the man is back Cory Schneider, team for whatever reason plays more focused and energized out there with him in net.

The only positive I can take from this giant mess is Couture and friends might be single handedly taking the diving crown away from Vancouver.

Frustrating that we could have, should have, won games one and two. Canucks were the better team in both games.

Things would be a lot different if we had.

No excuses.

This team is as healthy as it has every been in the playoffs and is having its worst showing of this "core's" generation.

At least the epic collapses against Chicago were in the second round, and we were able to actually win some games and score some goals in the process.

I tip my hat to those posters that said many of the Canucks were having career years in 10-11. I didn't believe it at the time and I thought many of our players had just finally reached their potential and would maintain it for 4-5 years, that just doesn't seem to be the case.

It's called Avquitonitis.

You can hear it periodically in the voices of key personnel.

Kes.

Bieksa.

Lagongo.

As I understand (and totally believe) it ain't the only issue but this team appears to have seen enough of dem der coaches.

Cue Phil Collins....

Is it curable? Rehab? Surgery? Really good drugs??

Certain aspects of the Canucks, certainly the powerplay, haven't been clicking for months. There's definitely a certain amount of blame that lies at the feet of the coaching staff, but at the end of the day, this team needs more horsepower up front too.

A good old fashioned bleeding usually does the trick.

Can't disagree with that, personally I was tired of this bunch a year ago.

But then I've pretty much avquitonitis the whole NHL for that matter.

I think most of us will be shocked if AV is not let go. I have heard that the Canucks have some interest in Ruff. Not sure how serious the interest is.

The other coaches need to go to. The only adjustment they have made on the PP is to drop Kesler back to the point, which is fine. But for the life of me I don't get why they don't play into the teams strengths and have Garrison on the 1st PP unit. If nothing else he might break a few bones on sone of those inclined to block shots. :mrgreen:

Agreed. I don't know how it fits with whatever code they follow on NHL ice, but if teams just want to layer in the blockers then why not let the Garrisons and Edlers aim for vulnerable spots on the blockers? Break a couple of ankles (or jaws/cheekbones if you're lucky) and see how willing those fuckers get to step into their lanes. Vigenault should have called that one after the first couple powerplays in game one and start plunking the shot-blockers. Even if it costs you game one, you're sending a message out there. :twisted:
