Yeah, but we're also just 2 pts shy of sole possession of 3rd place, honest 3rd too not via division lead.

Sit tight and enjoy the ride

even if they did miss the playoffs and get the first, which isnt impossible but, highly unlikely, the team shouldn't draft jones. take a 3rd/4th rounder from the team with the second overall pick as insurance they wont pick jones and proceed with drouin. with that pick the team would be able to have a good second line

CANUCKS ALL AGREE SOMETHING MISSING

BY JASON BOTCHFORD, THE PROVINCE MARCH 10, 2013
MENDOTA HEIGHTS, Minn. — A rough loss against the Chicago Blackhawks couldn’t do it.

Neither could a blowout at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings.

Maybe it will be the overtime loss to the surging doormats, the Columbus Blue Jackets, which helps kick start a Canucks season that’s been, at best, meandering.

Either that, or it could be the 160 pushups.

Winners of just three of 11 games, the Canucks have been missing something. You could say it’s centres and a power play, and you’d be right.

But Cory Schneider called it urgency. And Henrik Sedin said it was desperation.

Whatever it is, it inspired one of the Canucks’ first closed-door meetings of the season Saturday.

“We need to get a little bit more desperate,” Henrik said. “We can’t just go about our business and think not getting wins is good enough just because we’re playing well.

“We need that little extra.

“That’s what you saw in our games against L.A. and San Jose where we pushed ourselves a few more per cent. That’s the difference sometimes in getting two points or losing in overtime.”

Maybe you can’t measure desperation, but Henrik said the fact the Canucks have had more than two power plays in just one of their past seven games reflects a lack of it.

“When you’re playing desperate hockey, that’s usually when you get a few more power plays,” Henrik said. “For sure that’s one thing, when you have to battle a little harder to get to the net so they have to haul you down.

“That’s something we have to start doing.”

A Canucks season never officially starts until the first players-only meeting. Sometimes they go nowhere, and another needs to be called in a few weeks.

Other times they seem to have some impact, like in the 2010-11 season. The Canucks were tortured 7-1 on Nov. 20, 2010 by the Hawks. What followed was a players-only meeting, some moments of self-reflection and the coming together of 23 men, give or take, making it a memorable, if convenient, turning point.

“I don’t think we’re desperate yet, but we need that desperation,” Schneider said. “I think urgency is the better word. We have to realize that ‘Hey, tomorrow is the halfway point of the season and usually the second half is the playoff push.’

“It’s one thing to be in games, but I think we need to have that urgency and that instinct to either separate ourselves during the game or to put teams away instead of hanging around and being in a game.

“I think we need to be dominant in games at some point.”

Dominant is one thing the Canucks have not been, other than three games, which were wins over Minnesota, Calgary and a beatdown of the Anaheim Ducks. But there hasn’t been a game like that in a month.

While the players are handling the current swoon with meetings, the coaching staff chose a more direct, draconian approach.

“Punishment,” Henrik Sedin said.

That’s what the Canucks got served at practice Saturday when head coach Alain Vigneault rolled out his power play practice. The units, which didn’t have personnel changes, had a drill where the power play had to get shots on net and retrieve the puck three straight times.

If they did it, they were good. If not, they had to do pushups.

“There were 160 pushups; yeah, it was tough,” said Henrik, who counted every single one.

Schneider said: “They’re either going to be really strong (Sunday), or really tired.”

Vigneault has either been patient with his alignment or stubborn. He’s continued to have Jordan Schroeder on the point for his first power-play unit, while Jason Garrison, who had nine power-play goals last year, is on the second unit.

When will his patience run out?

“That’s a good question,” Vigneault said. “I’m going to be patient enough to start (Sunday’s game) way.

“How long that’s going to last, I don’t quite know.”

Canucks all agree something

If playoffs started tomorrow, we'd be playing Wild in the 3 vs 6 match-up.

AV will not go unless they are losing with everyone in the line up. I think Gillis is feeling a bit of pressure right now, but he has 3 weeks until the trade deadline. A team can turn it around in one week going undefeated. Another factor is, this team hasn't played healthy all season it seems. They need to have their regular lines so they get into a routine and habit and familiarize themselves with the same line mates game in and game out.

Good luck with AV at the helm.

Trust me, you don't. His last good year was two seasons ago in Anaheim. I was so stoked with how he was playing, he had a career year in points. The next season he stunk, and I was so happy they got rid of his subpar play and enormous cap hit.

We don't need anymore #2-4 defencemen on our team. We need a #1 D to anchor the crops. Edler was supposed to be our #1 but he's suffering from the yips. Either he's got an injury or the LAK series messed up his head. Either way, the Visnovsky won't be able to provide much help for the Canucks.

My reasoning behind Visnovsky is that he can play the right side, provide a veteran presence to set the D-corps straight, help the PP and he'll be cheap (yes I realize 5.6 mil cap hit) and can be a rental as his contract expires this summer

Streit is a possibility too but I don't see the captain getting shipped

But hey, I don't watch many NYI games

This is all assuming another D gets shipped away at the deadline

Komisarek and Liles are sitting in the press box because of a logjam at D - even Gardiner is having to wait in the AHL while playing very well for the Marlies. They (Komi/Liles) were playing decently. Their only real drawback this season has been salary, a potrtion of which could be used in trade. It has been speculated they have been sitting in part so they won't get injured before a trade. I'd rather keep one or both since some of our D are AHLers and it shows at times. I haven't been watching the Canucks this season so I'm not sure what would make an even trade or if they would help your team.

My troll suggestion is to fire AV and hire Ron Wilson. You would find yourself with a constant craving for waffles.

Don't need another offensive D. If anyone we need Defensive Dman like robyn reghr to clear the net in front.

What we need:
Top 6 wings
Defensive D man
3rd C
New coach
