The Canucks, feeling semi-good about themselves after a decent run of play, open the second half of their 2016/2017 regular season on the precipice of playoff eligibility. Are they respectable hockey players or scrubs headed back to the cellar? Do we want them to win or lose? Should they stay or should they go?

The Predators are two points back, but have two games in hand. The difference may be goal differential; the Preds at an anemic +2, the Canucks at a harrowing -16.

Prediction: one of these teams will win.

What one does mick is want to win as bad as ever...... but if we lose it's less painful generally speaking... because of what the t@#k brings... generally speaking

If we lose games because we're just not good enough at this point, then fine.
If we lose because the players and/or management have given up - then I really don't care where we draft - they should play like the pros they're paid to be.

So T@#k? No way - lose with dignity and get a decent pick? Maybe.

Yes Cornuck. A noble loss, yes. Striving, pressing, and failing, yet all along for a higher purpose (this describes my dating life before I got married). "All in the valley of death rode the six hundred."

Tanking is quite easy, it seems. It happens almost automatically after March to the bad teams, which are the ones counting on the Megnas and Chaputs to score (at this point I would like to see Curtis Valk, a dwarvish perennial training camp hero who can put the biscuit in the proverbial basket).

And now Tryamkin has to make an example of someone, like Chara had to, just has to pound the living the shit out of someone. :devil:

Willie shouldn't have had the Sedins out there for the OT penalty. Bo,Baer,Sutter deserved the opportunity IMHO.

Oh well,lucky to snag a point
