If this isn't rock bottom, I don't know what is.

Looks a little too much like two seasons ago. Virtually everyone on the team has decided they are going to take the season off.

This team is out of confidence

Dateline - Vancouver... A BLOODY DISGRACE!

If I paid to see this debacle I would be pissed!

Everything about this team now cries out 2006/07 over-acheivers.

I hope someone jams this next comment down my throat in April but this team is not going to make the playoffs!

Excuse me? That team came out dominating winning 8 of the first 10 I believe...

then Naslund got hurt in December and Nonis refused to get us a goalie and we missed the playoffs.


Oh and a terrible game by Luongo.. that .800 save percent should have been much lower.

VIGNEAULT VITTLES: APPLYING LIPSTICK TO THE PIG

Postby B. Mackin » Thu Nov 01, 2007 10:54 pm

"Our guys were ready to play and they came out really hard. We had a number of quality chances, their goaltender, give him credit, he made some good saves. This is a tough league when you get behind... they did a great job of clogging up that neutral zone...I thought we wer making a lot of great effort plays."

VIGNEAULT VITTLES: INJURY UPDATE

Postby B. Mackin » Thu Nov 01, 2007 10:55 pm

"Kevin (Bieksa) is gone to the hospital here, he took what I’m assuming is a skate off his calf and is a pretty deep cut there with the muscle, so he’s gone, they couldn’t fix him up here... Sami (Salo) is on his way to the hospital, the puck hit him in the orbital bone in the nose... It’s easy to say both those guys are going to be out for a while."

First of all, for the record, I'd like to deny that I have spent the last week in Minsk negotiating the sale of the Canucks to a Belorussian oligarch.

Indeed, I completely deny this.

I wholly, absolutely, totally deny this.

It's a vicious, false and totally inflammatory rumor.

A complete fabrication.

Black, damnable and false mendacity of the worst and lowest order.

How dare you suggest that I could do such a thing. How dare you! I love this damned franchise. It would be like selling my own mother!

Now, some of the cynics out there may choose at this point to remind you that I did, in fact, sell the mother of one of my children to a Taiwanese bio-medical research facility in the late 1990s.

Well, okay. It's not something I'm necessarily proud of and came at a slow patch in my career. But, I would still argue that selling "a" mother and ex-wife is a very different thing from selling your "own" mother. Besides, the studies they performed on her have proven invaluable in the global fight against macular degeneration.

Now where was i?

Oh yeah.

The whole sale of the 'Nucks to the Belorussians in exchange for a 35% interest in the Perm-Solikamsk railway line and an assignment of the unsecured portion of a future re-insurance claim for the possible subsidance of JSC Urakali's carnallite processing plant in Berezniki is a complete and highly deranged fantasy.

Let's face it, with the way the team's playing, I'd be pretty damned hard pressed to secure those terms.

Oh well, let's see if the Bosnians will take this off our hands . . .

I wonder if it's already done. I'm truly dissapointed so far, but when i hear these "Bosnians" at GM Place cheering the opponent i could vomit....

The most exciting part of the game for me was finding out Dave Tiger Williams is now an astronaut.

NIK, they may have done well out of the gate that season, but they weren't playing well even with the good opening record. Most of the players on that team were underachieving as the players on this team are now.

Maybe if Naslund had taken $4.5 million per season instead of $6 million per season, Nonis would have had enough space under the then $39 million cap to have gone out and gotten a goaltender. Naslund has been healthy in the last seaon and a bit and he so far has 32 goals and 74 points in 97 games since then. Not enough for a $6 million superstar.

In all fairness to Naslund, I know he was fighting off a shoulder injury for at least part of last season although I don't know how severe it was or for how long that he had it during the season.
