Oh Ian, the master of understatement. Canucks have been decimated with injuries AND SOME OF THEM CAN BE CONSIDERED KEY INJURIES.

Do ya think:
Beagle
Sutter
Boeser
Edler
Sven

Two shut down centres
Two top six wingers
Top pairing Dman.
Eyes wide open! +1

What I noticed.
Bachman isn't and will never be an NHL goalie or an NHL back-up goalie.
He is an AHL back-up goalie unless he wants a career change.

A couple of things; We sucked. haha.
To a man. the defense had a horrible game. Stecher was still bad but did defend Pete when Gudbranson stood there and did nothing,
that pissed me off as we aren't paying him for his mighty offensive prowess.
It's getting clear, MDZ is not worth the roster spot, and no, I don't think it's fatigue, he's just butt bad!! When our health returns, Boot him!
Elias's confidence is f*cked for a while, he'll get it back if Green goes about things right.
After Bo, Jake seems more of an "A" than anyone.
We are beat-up and pooped, let's see what happens from this point forward.
Green is on the hot seat now. Let's see how he handles this.
Teams lost it's moxy for a bit, what does he do? Not what Willie did, I hope...

We knew this was coming, there was no way they could of held the same winning % as they were.

Still like what I’m seeing.
Most of us did.

Let the kids play and develop. Playoffs in two years
Seems 90% of #canucknationonline are running around like chicken little calling for Green’s head. The other 10% percent are here trying to decide who’s drunk texting better.
I’m trying to get drunk but the little missus keeps bugging me. Still great game watching EP with his stick work.
Why doesn't she want you to drink?

This game was a train wreck. But I watched the whole thing.

EP needs another skilled guy on his line so the other team cannot focus fire him.

Goldobin has to go.

Pouliot is horrible. How is he playing in the NHL? I cannot believe there are no better defensemen than him available? I'd rather have Garrison lol.

The only shitty silver lining about this injury list is that the understudies are getting quality icetime and a chance to work through mistakes.
It's not too shitty and probably the best thing that could happen to this team. Kids like Goldy need time to develop, not just a few weeks for us to "see what we have" and then keep or discard.

As ugly as these losses are, they're to be expected from a team without much depth. It's a blessing and a curse we get to see more of some players. But better to know what hand we're holding before going all in with some of these guys.

I missed the beginning of the game, the really couldn't handle watching much of the remainder. I'm not going to stop working for this level of entertainment.

Is "Bachman Turnover Overdrive" really the best that an NHL team can do for a backup these days?

We all knew this phase was coming: the injury depleted lineup trying to make a go of it.

Starter plays 9 straight including some back-to-backs and loses the last 3. He needed a night off.

Back-up goaltender has a broken hand or something.

AHL starter/Future NHL starter(?) is sidelined with a concussion.

Bachman is our 4th stringer.

To quote Todd B: It is what it is.

What are you on about? Are you only now discovering Green’s past connection to a handful of players?

Don't think he should have much influence on who's brought in. Why should he?

Other teams continuing to take cheap shots at Canuck players is.
