It's going to be the dark ages for the next while.
Aquilini has clearly let his heart make some of the decisions with this team. The problem is that he just doesn't own the Canucks - he owns Rogers Arena and the buildings that will surround it. The Canucks may be a big asset, but they're just one in his portfolio of many. There's no way he's selling the team, unless someone offers him a ridiculous price for it. Ego is a powerful thing.
Aquilini has no heart for the fans, he's all about the dollars.

He does not deserve this.... guy's confidence is probably half shot now and he's usually a calm guy, hopefully Lu gives him a call like he did last time and talks to him
Is it me or has Torts been benching guys more often (for whatever reason, terrible plays, penalties etc) during this terrible stretch leading to our already damaged top 6 to log even more minutes, it seems like we slow down in the 3rd period in a lot of the games too. Possible diminished trust, respect, and possible at this point? Bitching at his players got old after the first couple months, now its just stale. I'd imagine his never ending negative body language on the bench has some effect on the players too. Could be safe to say he's lost the room
inb4 "blaming the coach" again
PS: if you're gonna use the good ol, its all on the players retort, just press the fail button on the bottom right
Nope you're wrong. He was here and if we treated him like the #1 he would still be here. It's a known fact that he got his agent to force the trade to the Panthers after the Heritage Classic snub.
You think he would have shown up for training camp if not for the Olympics? I have strong doubts about this. We all want to believe Lu took a hit personally and swallowed his pride to come back and play for Vancouver. But if all it took was the Heritage Classic 'snub' for him to ask out...
I went to the game today....bought tickets for 5th row, center ice....I'm not even mad...In fact, I'm impressed...It takes a certain unique type of suck to pull off what we did today, against a garbage team that just traded away most of its best players and has its best player injured...
