    Well, Minnesota just beat Nashville. Step 1 of "what's the worst that could happen?" is complete. Step 2 is "be out of a playoff spot" by the end of tomorrow.

    I hope it happens so it wakes up management and hopefully the team by association but knowing the Canucks, it will do the opposite.

    Would we be out of a playoff spot? Everyone from spots 3-8 basically have the same amount of points, and many of them have 2+ games played than us.

    seriously doubt we would be out of a playoff spot we would be tied with a lot of teams

    Canucks will have had 3 days to think about the loss to the Jackets. I think they can win tomorrow.

    :handclap:
     
  8. That's not possible tomorrow even if the Wild win in regulation.

    Even if we miss playoffs management line will be "it was a shortened season.. Injuries and unpredictable."

    I think I would prefer to see

    Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
    Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen
    Booth - Higgins - Kassian

    instead

    would make too much sense for AV to actually implement it. Expect Weise on the second line and Schroeder on the fourth
     
  15. 11-1 Canucks

    1st period

    10:00 MIN Churla (McRae Chambers)

    2nd period

    0:08 VCR Schroeder (Weise Alberts)
    1:08 VCR Barker (Testito Alberts)
    2:08 VCR Sestito (unassisted)
    3:08 VCR Barker (Alberts D Sedin)
    4:08 VCR Weise (Booth Kassian)
    5:08 VCR Alberts (H Sedin D Sedin)
    6:08 VCR Alberts (Burrows Reality)
    7:08 VCR Barker (Hansen Raymond)
    8:08 VCR Weise (Burrows Lapierre)
    9:08 VCR Barker (Kassian Higgins)

    3rd period

    19:59 VCR Sestito (Raymond Hansen) ppg
    ____

    NOTES

    Barker's first career hat trick...Hamhuis, Edler and Garrison benched in the third period due to poor play...Tanev hits three posts...Canucks' second period slumps comes to an abrupt end...

    Are we really going to ride the rest of the season with Raymond/Lapierre/Shroeder down the middle? :help:

    I don't think AV is too excited about the C depth either...

    For the love of all that's good and righteous, we hope not. To be fair to Barker, he wasn't quite as pillow-chewingly bad as he was the first couple of games, but he's still a hell of a long way from good.

    ------------------------------------

    And please guys, just win.

    Can't wait for those glorious passes that lead to point blank chances for the opposition.
