To the Canucks who took the ice tonight: Thanks for showin up. Next time, try playing the f*cking game!!!
Try adding a little heart!!! Maybe a little grit!!!
This was disheartening to witness. No passion, no legs, no anything. Talk about guys going through the motions. It's not like tonight's game was meaningless, only a hated divisional rival when we're on the outside looking in!
It's one thing to lose to bad bounces. I'll even accept some rookie mistakes on our Winnipeg D. But to lose it on account of lack of drive, competitiveness and heart makes me ashamed to wear the whale. Almost all those goals were due to lack of effort. I got tired by the second period of there being physical contact and the Canuck dropping like a Reagan bodyguard. What about winning some physical battles, maybe a couple of puck battles. NO HEART!!!
If anyone is trade bait, it's Salo. It made me sick to see him out there in the 1st period. The 1st goal was all his fault, as he totally whiffed his assignment. I'm tired of this guy getting winged and limping off to the bench. He has a rocket shot, but so does Edler. Yeah, Salo's shots get through more often than not, but so do Bieksa's. This guys is no better than Edler on the defensive end. Why isn't Nonis dangling this tin-man like a pinatta?
I hope this is just a case of road legs cathcing up to them. I hope they show better against the Hawks. Otherwise, it'll be a slow painful end to the regular season with some hard decisions to make about our soon-to-be-UFA tin-man captain.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.
Hate the League.
