Don't want boos? Put on a decent team that can score and win. That's on the owner and management.

Something has to be said about the system Torts has implemented here. It's becoming the norm where we get a couple of goal lead to eventually blow it in the end.
Of course they can, I am totally for fans doing what they want. They are paying the tickets.

However I still think it's a joke to boo your star rookie goals (or "Lu" if you prefer, not that it makes a fucking difference)

@TSNBobMcKenzie: As per @Real_ESPNLeBrun, Callahan's latest offer to NYR is 6 years at south of $6.5M per. NYR appear to be holding line at $6M per.

On a serious note with Daniel going down to injury this could be the best cop out for gillis on no trading kesler. I mean gillis wants to try and fuck over other GMs trying to get the better deal. With other GMs being smarter then gillis they most likely will not trade with him.
So with that being said gillis will do absolute shit during trade deadline.

Im a die hard Canucks fan since 94 but this season is pathetic. I barely can get myself to watch one period. The Canucks are boring. The system that Torts has implemented just isnt working.

Until something is done to make them fun to watch again I don't plan on going to another nux game in awhile. Definitely not worth the money.

The injury can mean that they'll either start the fire sale or stand pat because Daniel is hurt.

My bet is that Gillis will do absolutely nothing because the GMs in the rest of the league are just going to blackball him.

i don't think daniel's injury will affect kesler/edler trade value very much. they will be looking at how these two players can make a difference for their team and the fact that they are still signed and not rentals help.

at the end of the day, the other teams already know the canucks season is done. even if danny was healthy, we were a long shot to make the playoffs anyway and every other GM knows that.

Interest in the team is the lowest it's been since the late 1990s. The Canucks brand is taking a huge hit.

It's a pretty simple formula:
- Trade whatever assets you can for draft picks
- Hire some real scouts
- Fire Torts - he's not the right coach for this group
- Play the kids next year and hope that their enthusiasm will draw fans and interest in the team. Maybe sneak into the playoffs in 2015-16.

Too early to tell if this is Torts' fault...

Something is clearly amiss when your star players just arent producing..Ive never seen the Sedins this ineffective and invisible. Theyre still successful with possession but theyre just not scoring. Same with Burrows. Look at their shooting percentages, its unreal. Some bad luck has to be factored in for sure, but it looks like the issue is systemic.

i think don cherry has it right. they are overthinking the game and not reacting to the game.

don showed a clip where burrows had the puck on the left on 2v1 with henrik. the correct play should have been to swing a pass to henrik right away then either drive the net and wait for the tip-in pass or get a rebound if hank shoots. instead he hesitates and skates himself into a situation where his pass will now be blocked and he's forced to take a tough angle shot.

this is just one example of how the entire season has been for this line and PP. too much hesitation, too much thinking, too much predictability.

Rangers are in the Playoffs.

inb4 WE WANT GUM-CHEWING AV!!





Speaking of hesitation, that Henrik hesitation on the backhand opportunity in the OT PP against Minnesota...
Not sure what happened after that play, cause my face was being covered by my palm.

I don't think possession means anything when the player holding the puck stays still at one corner and has four guys surrounding him. I saw that happen a few times to henrik last game. No where to pass to and the opposite ice end was empty with no signs of canuck player.

A bit of contradiction there. Since their possession game is still working, it points out that this is NOT a systemic issue, just the finish is not there which typically points to 'some' bad luck. As you noted though, their shooting percentages are off the chart bad this season. We expect to see some positive regression, but we've also been expecting that from David Booth for the last 2 years.

See, I feel that the right play would have been for Burrows to shoot it, the simple play. Since he's in a funk, keep shooting and eventually one will go in. He's a good player, the numbers will turn around eventually. If he shoots it off Anderson's pad the rebound would have headed towards Henrik's direction for another chance. If he forces the pass there's a higher chance that the pass could have been deflected by the defender, or Henrik may not be able to handle the pass and both would have resulted in a lost scoring chance.

So really, there is no 'correct' play, and these are the decisions that players have to make in a split second. When they make the wrong one, its easy to come back after the fact and say they are overthinking it.

Sather plz no, never gotten more than 54 pts and has had injury problems especially as of the last few seasons

if he was having seasons like
2010-2011 60GP 23G 25A 48PTS
2011-2012 76GP 29G 25A 54PTS than it would be more reasonable

6M a year for what has been 45GP 11G 14A 25PTS is David Clarkson status because "intangibles" and as much as I like Callahan, when he was injured this year NYR actually played way better without him..
