According two these two rankings, the Canucks have one of the easiest schedules from now on

Have to play Florida twice, Carolina twice, and Calgary 4 times

Why has no one, specifically Green, been fired yet? I've been waiting for him to get fired for 3 seasons now.

The team hasn't actually started playing lazy until after the covid outbreak...

Coaching has been fine (actually good) until now, and if people want an answer to why they suck, 'bad coaching' is always the first guess for fans

It might be, it might not be,.. I think it goes deeper. But when you have people unironically saying they want to bring Torts back... Yikers!

If Green does get fired on the road trip, I hope Benning will pay for the taxi to the airport ... or at least give him a ride if JB is on road trip with the team.

Yes Benning has not been great to put together the back end, but the forwards have potential.

I figured the Canucks wouldn't be great, but I can't imagine them being THIS bad... Petey, Miller, Boeser, Hughes, miller, Garland, Hogs, podz. That is a much better group than many previous rosters that have played significantly better than this group.

JT Miller is a "glue guy" for the team. He helps bring about unity within the team.

Remember the player lineups that Miller announced during the 2019-2020 playoffs in the Edmonton bubble? He would rally up the team when Green asked Miller to make the starting line announcements before playoff games with his funny remarks.

If JT is silent and just muttering "I don't know" as an answer in response to a reporter question team unity, you know that there are huge divisions in the locker room.

The team is divided now. There are different factions in the team for quite some time. This is the impression that I am getting from Miller.

This team is not playing for each other, and definitely not responding to Coach Green and his assistants.

Where are the gritty players that show up to play every night on this team??

As a longtime Canucks fan since 1982, it's been hard watching this team play. This current team has all the talent, offensive skill with Petey, Hughes, Boeser, and Miller. They made so many mistakes in many of their games this season that even with Demko in the net they are losing games badly. Demko can't bail this team, night in and night out.

All this talent on this team but no heart. -very sad to see what has happened to this team.

Did Petey catch the Loui virus? After signing big contract ... then somehow you suck?

The signing was not on Benning ... if he didn't sign Petey, the fan base would be up in arms. He signs him and all of a sudden he took the baton from Loui!

-not sure what is wrong with Petey's game now. Is it all because of lack of concentration, or lack of belief in his game?

John Garrett made an interesting observation in the loss to Colorado at home a couple of weeks ago.

When he sees Petey on the ice, there is no speed in his game now. Petey just glides on the ice. His feet are not moving during large parts of his shifts on the ice.

Sometimes Petey is hesitant to shoot the puck too on 5 on 5 play and on the PP.

I don't see any confidence coming from Petey now.

A huge fear for me is that petey actually isn’t as good as we thought he was.

It’s not likely that someone can show the brilliance he has in the past and just wilter away, but man, if that’s the case, we’re fucked

Realistically, the only move they have is fire the coaching staff to try and salvage the season.

Thomas Drance just went on a 10 minute rant on the radio that was spot on, basically blasting the organization top bottom

Giving green an extension because he won games when the playoffs had already started and they blew their lottery pick

Giving Benning an extension after making the Miller deal basically rewarding a last ditch effort to keep your job.

Both moves completely ass backward.

Then you look at how Tanev, Markstrom, and Toffoli were handled and all but forgotten by dim Jim with even him admitting “we can out of time” and those players coming out saying negotiations almost didn’t take place

8 years in charge with 1 playoff appearance for Benning, 5 years of coaching with 1 playoff entrance with Green.

This is completely fucked. Ownership needs to man up and overhaul this shit completely. You cannot let Benning make another coaching hire. This season is basically a write off so you better be deep in your search for management replacement as well as hiring a competent hockey operations guy. This is becoming literally unwatchable. Like, I’ll go to a game to go stand in the concourse and shoot the shit but the excitement for the on-ice product is all but gone.

Yup. What pasta rocket said if the team is divided and they are not playing for the coaches and each other then its a done deal.

But you know at the end of the day the real Losers are the fans. The suckers that pay thousands of dollars for seasons tickets. So Aqua man really gotta do something to get the players what they want.

I agree 100 percent. The buck stops with Aquaman.

When you hear fans chanting "Sell the team! Sell the team!" inside the arena after yet another home game loss, the owner needs to do something FAST to save the season.

Clean house. New GM. New Coach.

The big question is what viable GM and coaching candidates are available now to hire to save this franchise?

Which candidates for GM and coach would be best for this team? Who would want to manage and coach this team now?

Honestly, I'd give Mike Gillis a call.

Aquaman would never do it though.

Honestly...can't put blame anywhere. Canucks went from a talentless but hardworking team years ago to this plenty of talent but beer league effort of a team.

Like fucking Petey...what the fuck are you doing? Boeser?

Bo been bitching about his wingers all these years and now he has garland or hoglander or hell even dickonson, pearson.

No hustle on this team.

If you're playing hard like Miller and see your teammates glide around the ice ... doesn't that cause tension in the locker room?

Miller is the biggest loser in all of this.

In the prime years of his career, playing some of the best hockey of his life and seeing all the talent on the team being wasted.

To add to this list:

Leaving Troy Stecher up in the air while grasping at straws trying to sign Tyson Barrie, another D man who would have taken less to stay and was very serviceable

Signing known damaged goods Ferland, a complete disaster.

Signing Baertschi to a long term contract and burying him in the minors months later

How Benning/Chiarelli constructed the Bruins to win a cup is beyond me?? Yet both literally screwed up the Oilers and Canucks.
