So much easier to watch the Canucks once you lower your expectations.

Torts just started as head coach and has something like 4 years left on his contract. I don't think he's going anywhere...

Where does this leave Torts in the off season?
Think about it.

Daniel is likely done for the season
Kesler to be traded tomorrow
Edler on the block
The best goalie you've played with is traded
Team is expected to win with 2 rookie goalies
NO IMMEDIATE HELP to alleviate injuries

^^ Not to mention Burrow's injury and how he hasn't been able to do anything since returning.

It's been that type of year.

Lack played really well today, so lets hope he can keep this up. But the rest of the team is a joke.

All he needs to do is get a shutout 100% of the time and they will have a chance at winning some 1-0 shootout games

Lack playing well is a catch 22. Sure, he gives us the best chance to win but what does it matter when at the end of the day the end result is still a loss? The goalies playing well only mask how bad the team in front is. Tanking won't help us this season either.

The fact that we keep losing key cogs just buys MG more excuses to blame this season's woes on injuries.

This season is a write-off. No win scenarios any way you look at it. MG royally cornered himself.

20 years of sweat and tears...I gotta say, this feels worst than Keenan's days

Probably because I'm a lot older to really understand whats going on.

I lowered my expectations to one regulation goal and hope to drag out a shutout, overtime, or shootout win ...

They still disappointed ...

If Markstrom and/or Lack manage to get to Schneider's level, we'll come out okay.

Unfortunately, that's a question mark, not a certainty. I think I would've rather put Luongo on waivers than trade Schneider and then trade Luongo 9 months later.

So? Burke re-signed Ron Wilson, fired him before his new contract even kicked in.

The goal is to win games, not make money. Win games and the money will follow, especially in a city like Vancouver. Canucks will lose way more in lost revenue if they keep playing like this than if they fire Tortorella and bring someone in who helps the team win games.
