Kesler exposed. Overrated.
Well its not as if we didn't put in the effort we just suck with execution.
Well, we apparently knew we'd be in tough to make the playoffs in the new division...not sure why we're all surprised.
That was a snoozer.
We're a one line team, and when that line goes cold we're almost guaranteed to lose.
how do we lose to a team without Getzaf? Daniel and Henrik has to be injuried..
it should be crystal clear now that this team is not on the same level as the top tier teams in the league
Please tell us more
I actually thought defensively ducks effort level was superior, forwards were comparable on each team, but the ducks defense was all over us in their end. Little to no space.
ALways will be a 1 line team until gillis gets off his ass and finds some finishers.
They're fine. They just get neutralized against the best teams in the West.
Or, maybe, asking two 33 year-old guys to play 25 minutes every night is not realistic?
Not really. These top teams know exactly how to shut them down. Nothing has changed, don't expect to see any difference in the playoffs (if we make it)
Ah well... If we were evenly matched with these teams, we'd expect to win around 1.2 to 1.35 games as the road team. We're probably slightly behind them right now, but it isn't too bad.
Daniel is definately injuried.....reported as body injury....and 25 minutes is too much for them......need to reduce
agreed. same old same oldd
A lot of doom and gloom here right now.
Take a step back - a lot of us thought it was realistic the team go 0-4 on this road trip based on the opponents. It wasn't a good road trip by any means but it could have been worse. And the team played well in but two periods in L.A. really.
Team missing 4 regulars, on a second game of a back to back on the road, a game where they had no puck luck what so ever but yes crystal clear.
I think most team know their style of play so splitting them up is the best option to not get shut down
Not the best finish to the trip, but I find it hard to get too worked up about a team that came out of a stretch with 11 of 14 on the road with an 8-4-4 record.
Looking forward at the schedule, I wouldn't be surprised to see the team go on a bit of a run. 13 of the next 21 are at home and after the San Jose game 13 of the following 20 are against teams currently in the bottom half of the league.
This "we're a one line time" stuff is garbage. Henrik was a -2 this game. Sestito provided secondary offense. It wasn't that the team had only one line producing, It was that line didn't produce _and_ hurt the team by getting scored on twice. It's the defense of the top line that cost the Canucks the game.
Man, some people will just use whatever excuse to push a narrative. The top two lines pressed and pressed. Generated a big disparity in shots, but could not finish. It wasn't the first line leading the charge and no one following suit.
I agree this road trip should NOT be indication if we can complete with top tier teams....how many top team have entire line injured?
Think about what you're saying here. You're saying we all expected the team to go 0-4 on this road trip because of the opponents. You're basically admitting that the Canucks don't match up against these better Pacific division teams. If you thought the Canucks DO match up against these teams, shouldn't expectations have been higher then? Which one is it?
