    It is intriguing to watch Greener's player deployment:
    The Beagle line has some dominating shifts early and then they sit.
    MacEwan wins a fight and looks great overall and then he basically sits.
    Sutter scores a goal and Greener goes hog wild and deploys him and the invisible Roussel at even strength and when they are down a goal.

    Greener just keeps flogging the same poor dead horses.

    BTW: Roussel was hit by Lowry and he just skates away to do another car commercial.

    Let's face it, flawed teams just find ways to lose. The comment lament is, "we played well enough to win--again." And they did.

    But every game it's something new that rises up and bites them in the butt....bad penalties in the offensive zone; shoddy goaltending at key times; a power play that goes defunct when you need it most; or the dreaded d-zone or neutral zone turnover.

    And the 'young guys' aren't to blame, simply because they're so few of them in this lineup. It's a different 'veteran' every night....last night it was Miller with the turnovers and Holtby with a save he simply has to make; The night before, a tough night for Edler and Myers. It just goes on and on.

    But apparently the owner is happy....so as a fan, I guess your only option is to suck it up.

    Because if you do that it will be very obvious how Horvat is not contributing nearly enough so far this year.

    That’s sort of why you don’t really want to talk about those stats with a small sample size though. The moral victories in a 7 game stretch are wiped out by the previous 15 games. The real team is likely in between the horrendous team at the start and the team right now.

    7 years into the "retooling on the fly" and it is now headed into "tanking on the run".

    I am starting to like Myers more and more. When he is not making over aggressive plays and being caught out of position he is actually a very solid top 4 D. I think he has improved a lot over the course of this season.

    Petey, despite the points and goals looks just awful (for his expectations). There are flashes of brilliance but his consistency is concerning, plays have just been dying off his stick at an alarming rate.

    Lastly, it's time to ride Demko.

    The one time the 4th line actually has a good game and they barely get played. Green is unbelievable

    Great fight to start the game - led to great energy..
    Pressured the hell outta their D... created turnovers.
    Had bounces go our way... Got the first goal on a fortunate bounce...
    Nice to see Pettersson get a couple the way he did.

    Special teams let us down. Came thru to earn us a point tho.
    Boeser had a bad game. Looked like the worst version of himself.
    And goaltending let us down.

    But they had a sleeping beast on their side that decided to wake up.. Dubios. Playermaker made plays.

    We are a massive 4 head to head regulation swing wins back of the playoff bar. Will need some help.

    Well this is who we are the rest of the season. In the fight... needing everything to go right.
    Still optimistic this work rate starts to earn more bounces and wins in the coming games... Will be a fun watch to see if it will be enough...
    On to the next one.

    I think it's safe to say he's going to be an NHL regular, which is massive for this core. We couldn't afford a complete miss right after the Virtanen debacle.

    7 years of hell that has led to people talking about moral victories as if they are a good things at this point. Not everyone but enough think this way so we continue to suffer.

    Nothing will change until it hits FA in his pocketbook. If fans keep paying for tickets , merch etc.... no reason for him to make changes

    This is such limited thinking but the franchise losing value very much hurts the franchise.

    It’s absolutely foolish to suggest otherwise.

    But foolish thinking is the m.o. of this team and has been for about 7 seasons now.

    Saving cash while bleeding value seems very much a franky bleubs kind of thing

    Again, the team played well enough to win, but the team is also finding a way to lose them..PP is still sputtering....The Jets are good team, but gone are the days where they would murder the Canucks on regular basis.
    They just have to take it one game at a time..Oilers next.

    Agreed that should be the players’ thinking. But management should be planning to move out UFAs at the coming TDL, and get more draft capital. It’s clear, after these last two losses, we are done for this season.

    Since Aqua's tweet storm, we're 2-1-2. How many more regulation losses until we're below 1% playoff odds? Like 3 or 4?
