For me, I have seen this a long time coming. They haven't been playing really well in quite a while. SO many of their wins came in OT or SO, which I was saying back then was a bad sign, but people kept telling me that "a win is a win" and "points are points" and "the regular season doesn't matter"

Well they were on the winning side of the fine line, and now they are below it.. This needed to be addressed a while ago, hopefully they can work it out, but I'm not sure if they have enough time.

At least they have enough points accumulated to make it into the playoffs near the top of the standings, let's just hope they can make something of it.

Great post Skinny. A positive one that I haven't seen in awhile

It also makes me wonder why they tend to "struggle" against the weaker teams like Columbus, Carolina and Montreal.

I don't know if it's a motivational factor, but it's a good sign that they "show up" for the big games against the Detroit's, San Jose's, Chicago's etc.

The team must get its act together and find its "A-game" soon. It does sound like that there is some mental fatigue among the players.

The captain welcomes two days off before the Phoenix game:

(http://canucks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=621577&navid=DL|VAN|home)


The solution to the Canucks woes, according to coach Alain Vigneault, is giving the team two full days away from the rink to re-energize, re-focus and re-dedicate themselves to Vancouver Canucks hockey.

That idea went over well with the players.

“It was a really tough February, we were away for a long time and this is a good chance for us to get away and re-focus a little bit during some time off and be ready,” explained Henrik Sedin, now without a point in eight straight games, one off his career low of nine.

Good teams build momentum and finish the season on a winning note before the playoffs.


The guys better play a much better game against Phoenix after the two days off. If they don't, coach AV has to get the team to work hard to correct mistakes and improve their game. Every guy in the dressing room is held accountable for the team's poor play.

I'm also expecting Henrik to lead by example and play much better against the Coyotes. Come on Captain!

Whatever the reason - may it be they are saving themselves for the playoffs, slumping just because, whatever - it doesn't matter from a fans perspective. Bottom line, the Canucks are playing like shit lately. It's not fun to watch, and not having the difference makers show up will obviously start to worry some people.

Jeff Paterson said it on the post-game show, but he said that he had previously not even thought about the Canucks having a first-round exit from the playoffs, but the zygote is now there. Not a prediction or an assumption, just a thought. I'm sure this goes for a lot of fans too.

These people are professional athletes and they want to win. They didn't get to this level by trying to save themselves for the bigger stage - these players want to win night in and night out. If you've ever played the sport at some kind of high level (even if it is a "high-level" relative to what you're used to) you know this intensity and desire to win will be there, regardless of if you're in 1st or 8th place.

As I've said before, it's not as easy as turning on a switch and suddenly playing the game better.

13 games left is not a lot and the playoffs are right around the corner. Here's hoping the boys can turn it around real quick here.



Highlight of the night though, even though it wasn't the best tilt. Kids a beauty.

I am sure I am not the only one who noticed this. Schneider in net = win. Luongo in net = lose.

But I like Schneider more so I am biased.

Other than that, as a team, everyone seems like out of sync. Where did all those first period goals go? Salo hasn't been the "Salo" after the Marchand clipping. AV not putting Weise or Bitz back in when MayRay is not producing anything. Just my amateur observations.

They may be professionals, but it's the same at every level. Growing up playing volleyball it was the same. We were bouncing back and forth with one other team as the #1 ranked Sr. guys vball team in the Province but still sometimes had issues with the teams that were bad during regular season. It's all mental, you play down and play at their level. Then going to regionals, then provincials etc. and playing it was a totally different game. Everyone was there to win and it showed.

Canucks have been playing very poorly. Not just Luongo, but he has been far from stellar. At this point, I also have more faith in Schneids. Someone posted that the cap may go up to 70M. If thats the case, fuck Parise, keep Schneider as well. I think he'd take 3 - 4M for a few years knowing that Lu isnt staying here until his contract ends. I think everyone knows that.

I, like SkinnyPupp, haven't been comfortable with all the 1 goal games for months. We played that way for a couple seasons, get a 1 goal lead and defend... it doesn't work.

That being said, last season they dominated all season and ran out of gas when they needed it most. Fatigue also leads to injury. If you think they haven't learned from that and aren't trying to conserve some energy for playoffs you're wrong. And if you think you're cool by bringing it up every time the Canucks lose, you're just being ignorant. jayare604.jpg

Sedins are in a slump. For the first time in 8 years. Sure the timing is shitty, but it could be worse. They have time to pick it up before playoffs.

Anything can happen at the big show. Boston proved that last year. Canucks are a great team and we can be sure they'll show up in big games. They've done it all season.

Yeah, not comfortable with how they are playing now but still have faith. The ESPN stats about penalties definitely doesn't bode well for the 'skilled' teams.

Don't know what all the fuss is about. It's all about playoff performance.

If I had my way, I'd call up a bunch of AHL'ers and give the big boys a break (kesler/sedins/burrows). They usually get all banged up when the post season starts, lets not forget, Henrik had an ankle issue right? Or Daniel?

Let's take a look at 4 cup contending teams in their last 10 games:

Vancouver's Last 10 Games
4-4-2

Boston's Last 10 Games
4-5-1

Detroit's Last 10 Games
4-5-1

New York Rangers Last 10 Games
4-4-2

Is it coincidence that these teams are all struggling together now knowing that they are going to make the playoffs? Sure, you can give Detroit a bit of a pass since they have been missing Datsyuk, Howard and Lidstrom.

But my point being is if you look at all the teams who are making a strong effort to either make the playoffs, or battle for positioning down the road, they're giving it their 110% every night compared to teams that have already made it.

Now CDC take a deep breath and just watch this team take form when it matters. It doesn't "matter" now, and it won't "matter" till later. We all learnt our lesson from last year. Have faith!!
