    I'm not really too critical of Green, but would it hurt to try something different with the lines? Or are you happy just being the 3rd worst team in the league and riding out the season?

    Miller-EP-Hoglander
    Pearson-Horvat-Boeser
    Virtanen-Gaudette/MacEwen
    Roussel-Beagle-Sutter

    .. or slide Gaudette up into the top six, Pearson down. Whatever. Do something.

    I share those same concerns. All divisonal games, so Edm/Cal/Mon/Win when they play each other someone is going to get 2 points. So, there is little chance to catch up if they don't win series. No consecutive wins outside of against Ottawa this season.

    We really should know by the end of March over these next 16 games where they are. 4 games each against Win and Mon who have had their number this season. Along with 3 against Edm and 1 with Cal. These 12 games should dictate their course of action. If they end up splitting these games with just 12/13 points, then they aren't making up any ground.

    They have 2 each vs Tor and Ott, and likely to split those. So, if they obtain just 18/32 points then they are at 36 points with just 18 games left. If the 4th place team has an 8 point lead, I don't think they will catch up. No consistency in their play this season to lead you to believe that they can string together any sort of winning streak. Very hard to sweep series.

    It would be nice if Green changed the philosophy of his systems to being more in tune with our lineup too. We are a slow group.

    YAAA, at last someone who can add and subtract. Sure beats all the just do this or do that ideas that don't take into account things like....money.

    They, meaning Benning, have not done that but IMHO, Benning is done. The fans will not put up with another year of lies, false hope and ought right mismanagement. They will show up with bags on their heads and be chanting Fire Benning, IF they show up.

    Nationwide the Canucks have become a byline, hardly mentioned at all, of no consequence to the sports reporting of the day or standings. Did you catch one of the "panel" chuckle when another was saying the Canucks were "just that close"

    ANY team is "close" if they Vezina type goaltending in the postseason AND face a team that has difficulty putting teams away because they lack enough elite goal scoring (e.g. Vegas)

    My predictions are for this series.
    Game 1:
    It's a close game, the Canucks limit McDavid to 1 or 0 points. But the Canucks lose 4-2.
    Game 2:
    McDavid pops off and gets 3-4 points and the game devolves into a complete shitshow with 10 goals.

    Would it kill Green to scratch Roussel for Hawryluk or something? Even Jake

    Benn has been leagues better than Hamonic was. No thank you.

    It would be very Canucks to bench OJ just as he's getting more confidence.

    They benched him a week or so after he scored a goal. So it’s to be expected.

    I'm okay with 10 goals scored. Canucks win 6-4. Pearson gets the 6th goal into an empty net to avoid o/t.
    Yeah, I'm fine with that. :towel:

    I will be happy if Hoglander can have a five point game. I dont think I will be disappointed

    A Brock Boeser Hatty would be STELLAR too :yo:

    Even worse, he scored his first NHL goal at the end of the Ottawa game, played two more shifts then sat in the press box for two weeks before stepping on the ice again.

    Horvat and Pearson love playing against the Oilers so I expect them to have decent games.
