    As many of you know, I am not a big fan of Travis Green at all. Although he is not given much to work with, I think he is an amateur coach. There were red lights from Utica fans during his tenure there of his stubbornness to keep playing certain players and his tactical knowledge. Lets not forget he has never won anything in the AHL level at all.

    Tonight was the last straw for me.

    The coach is the leader in this room, and tonight he really showed his true colors. He clearly values his job (2 points) more then protecting our most valued assets. The fact that he told his players not to retaliate after Petterson was hurt speaks volume of his spineless character.

    Alain Vigneault would have not let this slide and I'm 100% sure John Torterella would not have let this go.

    It's time we end the experiment and it's time we get a real NHL coach behind the bench. Coaches talk about winning the right way and fighting for your team. When you decide to give a free pass to a team that just injured your future franchise player, it really speaks volume of where this team's identity is going. We are not going to win anything with this man behind the bench and it's time for us to look at alternatives.

    If it’s true that Travis Green told our players not to retaliate then that’s a fireable offense for me.

    Bring back Marc Crawford. He would’ve handled Matheson properly.

    Pretty pissed on how ecstatic he sounded for a meaningless win in October for a team that WONT compete for playoff spot after losing his best player by far.

    Bery disappointment in team and coaches

    If Pettersson is out for a while with a concussion no one is going to give a **** if they Canucks finish with 68 points instead of 66 by the end of the season.

    This is a thread I can get on board with.

    Absolutely despicable response from the Canucks. The team didn’t even breathe on Matheson. It’s just so embarrassing. There isn’t anywhere near enough words to describe how I’m feeling right now.

    Based on Green’s comments after the game I’m nearly 100% certain he told everyone on the bench to not go after Matheson. So I’m going to give everyone on the bench a pass. As far as the players on the ice, it was a little away from the play so I’m not confident anyone really saw it. Would need to see a full replay though.

    Regardless... I am just simply stunned right now.

    “At some point, you’re happy that a player protects their teammate. At this time, not knowing what the [officials] are going to call, I mean, I’m more tempted to say ‘Turn the other cheek and let’s play.’ ” - Alain Vigneault, May 2015.

    We should fire him and hire Torts for the rematch game

    bet you he'd borrow Granlund's skates and take a too many coaches on the ice penalty and just start throwing haymakers at Matheson

    That's the Stanley Cup finals. If it wasn't, then something wouldve happened for that.

    This was a regular season game against an Eastern conference team in a season where we all know we won't win ****.

    Completely different situations

    I just have no desire to watch this team right now. Embarrassing time to be a Canucks fan.
