The other team seems to have so much more space and time to skate around everyone. Either the coaches are not adapting to the game or the players need to start putting more effort in.
It's both. WD doesn't change strategies or lines very often and, when he does, it's usually something small and way too late.

We also have a lot of passengers this year, it seems.

We have some skill and some speed, but that's it. No depth, no size, no toughness, no identity it seems anymore. JB says meat and potatoes, but I don't see any meat and potatoes on this team. We got rid of guys like Bieksa and Sestito for Dorsett and Bartkowski. Say what you will about those 2, but they did their jobs when needed. Now we have zero push back except for the occasional Dorsett ankle-biting.

The entire organization seems to have turned into a clusterfuck from the top down since 2012.

^breh its all in the tank plan dont worry! I would be seriously worried next year if they are still in shit tank mode!!! but this is what I see this summer in my crystal ball....Canucks miss playoffs ie have the perfect tank get a top 5 draft pick, they fire WD and the other shit coaching staff, find a coach and some assistant coaches that can run a decent pp, sign either lucic or ladd, sign loui erickson or someway in hell sign stamkos haha, sign a top d man or some depth ones...also drop guys like vrbata, weber, bartkowski, vey, prust, hamhuis,maybe trade burrows, trade higgins and let the rebuild begin!!!

but youre contradicting yourself no ? how can you be worried if theyre in shit tank mode next year, if (and this is how i feel) they need to be in shit tank mode for the next few years while they rebuild, which you seem to want a rebuild

What is there in common between now and Messier's era besides losing? There were no good prospects or anything to look forward to back then.

I don't think WD is getting fired yet, he's in on the tank plan, roll 4 lines no matter what to get everyone ice time + experience while ensuring a loss. The only players that will truly suffer are the Sedins who lose out on personal goals.

Doubt he will get fired. The Canucks don't need a third head coach on the payroll.

Pretty sure that any coach that gets hired by another team has their contract with the old team null and void.

Sort of....... Indtead of paying him $2 mill a year for 4 remaining years we pay an undisclosed amount of that according to press at the time CBJ hired him... And we got their 2nd round pick. CBJ had to pay out a portion of the $8 mill owed too, so it was pretty expensive for them to hire him.

According to Bob McKenzie, Vancouver is still paying Tortorella even after being hired by Columbus.

There are no rules regarding coaches salaries. Basically, when it comes to something like this, it's whatever terms the two teams negotiate between each other.

In the case, it's just Aquaman's money.

Fucking Aquaman needs to stop meddling and let hockey brass do what they hired him to do. His scope of knowledge is no where close to that of them

Is there concrete evidence owners are meddling right now? After Linden became president that is.

rumours, but a few of them so take it for what it is. I dont think there will ever be concrete CLEAR evidence as management will always say that ownership isn't interfering

Nothing concrete since MG's final months, but considering Aquaman was meddling in 12-13 and 13-14, it wouldn't surprise me given the abundant rumours especially from trusted media sources like Friedman.

Colorado is worse than the Canucks this game. We're up 2-0.
