Canucks lose game 1. Blow up team. Fire AV.


This is so fucking true.


I am a Boston Celtics fan and watching the fans for Vancouver makes me feel that this team doesn't have any support and suck.

Boston Celtics started the playoff season without Rajon Rondo one of their starters and puts up amazing number... They were down 0-3 in the series about to get swept... the fans are still there cheering them on and cheering their team on... Celtics are now back and won back to back games... series is now 3-2... Although it's really hard for them to win and NO TEAM has EVER pulled off a reverse sweep in the NBA... but at least they got a great fan base that will cheer em on no matter what happens... But the amount of facebook status and other people throwing in the towel is fucking ridiculous....

Every little thing you do is more exhausting than normal and you feel like puking once you get a tiny little break. The energy level you have is low to begin with so you really have to dig deep to keep up with others. I feel for Kesler because I do (to an extent) know what it feels like.

Normally, people get to call in sick or simply won't show up. It's incredibly hard to have the weight of the world on your shoulders and do your best while sick like this.
I'm not calling him a liar. Just like his history of injuries, it's never actually his fault.

But it's just frustrating to see a key player on our team unable to play to his full potential because of some issue that always seems to come up.

I'm just hoping to hear some "good" news that the Sedin's also had the flu last game.
As for their reason of why they were absolutely invisible.

At least Rome was and still is a solid 6th/7th dman. Ebbett is so fucking useless, worst hockey player I've ever seen.

Why is Ebbett playing? His slapper almost didnt even make it to Niemi. SMH. He's a 3rd line AHLer at best. Ridiculous. LOL

3 on 2.. his teammates maybe half to one stride behind him and he decides to throw a weak slapper up the middle

I remember that play so clearly......

Guy pretty much downgrades our offense, get rid of him and we'll have a legit fourth line to roll.....

I think it was Botchford that brough it up. If Malhotra is around with the team during this time why the hell is Booth not there??

We signed Higgins to be a 3rd liner why is he on the 2nd line?

Canucks fans are too spoiled, they don't care about another northwest division banner or president's cup (lol) all they want is a stanley cup or else....

Damn. Maybe re-sign booth to a lower cap hit afterwards. I think he's a decent 2/3 line winger with speed and size (almost like higgins). Cap hit too high.

Because May Ray can't play like a second liner unless it's against Calgary.

The problem with Booth is that he's not the goal scoring power forward that Gillis thought he would be.

Heck, Booth's hunting skills are probably better than his offensive skills. -hope he's not hunting for cougars at The Roxy.

Just think about this.

Lets say the Canucks did trade Luongo and Schneider had this injury.

Joe Cannatta AHL goalie starting for us in the playoffs

...Things could be worse

the goalie situation is a thing of the past after the abysmal game 1. You can have some random UBC kid play lights out and this team still can't buy a goal.
