People last yr were saying that we would win the cup because history has shown that there was a pattern of Canadian teams winning the Stanley Cup following a Canadian win in Olympics hockey...
Ok I guess that's not your point, Im just bitter right now.

^ that's why I don't sit in the upper bowl

And why I sit amongst the worst fans in the league in the lower..

Sigh...

The last 2 games were the worst playoff games I've been to in terms of hype and atmosphere, Vancouver fans outside of the peope who actually know a thing or two like the majority of the people in this thread deserve nothing from this team.

They should take Edler off the PP completely. I would take my chances with Salo.

The problem is (and this is even before the Play-Offs) is that the rest of the league has caught on to the play; and its kinda hard not to when last year we were the league's center of attention.


I wouldn't exactly blame Edler as the organized hockey culture has a wierd quirk. If you've ever played minors or juniors, if you deviate from the coach's playbook and start making your own individual plays, it's a quick way to start getting benched and into the doghouse (just look at our $4M defensemen, Ballard)


To be honest, I really blame the coaching staff. The PP setup, and the PP breakout has been neutralized more than 50 games ago; yet for some reason, we're still executing the same exact play every time to no effect. TBH, it's this kind of inability of Vigneault to make adjustments is what I find frustrating in him; sure he'll mix up the lines but what's the point. Its the exact same plays: the defenseman drop pass breakout... or on the PP, the Salo bomb setup.
This is exactly how I viewed the SCF last year. We made no changes to adapt to how Boston was playing us and we lost the cup because of it. I don't know if it's just AV being stubborn or this whole "sticking to the process" bullshit but something has to change next game. It is a must win situation imo.

Everything changed when teams caught on to our drop pass entry on the PP and we never adapted since

They need to put Kassian/big guy on the PP. We need someone to create space an at least able to hold the puck along the boards.

Kesler, Henrik, Burrows, Raymond, and Ebbett aren't doing it.

Booth and Higgins are decent at it.

But we need someone big enough to fight off the aggressiveness of the Kings.

Just got back from the game. Wow, what a stinker.

I feel for Luongo, he played well the past 2 games and the team let him down.

I think AV is to blame here. In the first period Bieska was paired with Ballard. Tanev was paired with Elder. WTF

Why is Ebbet even on PP?
Down 3-1 with 5 mins to go. Take unnecessary penalties and game misconducts?
Loungo was good again but not god-like.
Hank was the slowest skater. Circle behind the net like Crosby but turns it over...
Wanted to murder Elder.

Big concern is that LA is not even playing dirty. Canucks are being outplayed by skill and defense. Fuck.

But lower bowl is too expensive. I wasn't feeling the intro compared to last year's playoffs.

The game is not even sold out completely. There were quite a few empty seats and a handful of tickets available at 3pm today.

What's the story behind that??



I wonder is this AV's limit. Good regular season coach,
(given he has a pretty strong team to work with),
but weak playoff coach because of his inability to make changes and adapt to the opponent... ?

I think most people have agreed to put Schneider in to shake things up for game 3,
but I wouldn't be surprised if AV put Luongo in still.

But if Canucks did win with Schneider in net, I would leave him in for the rest of the series.
No point changing things up if Canucks win. Just business, have to play with the goalie that the team wins with,
even if he doesn't necessarily play better or worse than the other one.

I've sat at a number of games in the upper bowl and I have seen as many issues in the upper level as I have seen in the lower level.

This is what cup teams are made for. Coming back from being 2 games down when everyone has written you off. It aint over until the fat lady sings. Remember our lead on Boston last year?

Gut feeling for me is Schneids goes in for game 3. Not that Lu has played bad but I think AV could do this to shake up the team.

yeah Schneids could very well turn this thing around (not saying Lu is bad or anything) but a change would be good for us now.

2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs,

Montreal led Boston 2-0 - Boston wins.

Vancouver leads Boston 2-0 - Boston wins.

Being down 2-0 is not the end of the world.

Boston swept Philly last year...

I think you mean 2010 playoffs when Boston led Philly 3-0 and Philly came back to win the series
