First time I heard his name with 1 minute left in 2nd.
I think that's Vanek's MO! He'll Vanish for a few games. Here's hoping Green benches these guys, when they start to slack off!

They haven't looked good since the Penguins game. They've looked like a non playoff team. Last road trip they looked like a playoff team. Early season success wearing off? But ya, this is a boring game.

I miss their intensity, hard forecheck, offensive flashes. Oh well. Let's own the third.
The only HW the Canucks need

Vanek is really slow...
...and ducks D is really fast. Not a good combination. Canucks have little sustained pressure this game. They just wheel it out of their zone time after time.
We are all Jim Benning.

The problem with our squad right now HW is that we seem to be outclassed by the best teams when there on their game! We are either young and gaining experience or OLD! I think this may be our squad if they start to sputter. We're missing Tanev, he anchors our defense and calms/slows it down. If he goes down for to long it will be ugly me thinks!

That's part of Vanek's game... stealthfully meh.

The other problem is that Green is overplaying his checking line way too much. He can easily give Vanek & Jake an extra minute per game. Vanek has made subtle hints about his lack of ice time.

For a team looking for offense, Sutter & Dorsett shouldn't up there in minutes per game. Other than some great games against McDavid & Crosby, they've been getting crushed in the analytics.

I hope Green isn't expecting Dorsett's unattainable shot % to go even higher. Is Gaunce playing more minutes than some of the scorers reasonable? On the road where you don't have last change?

Like I said at the beginning of the season, I hope Sutter & Dorsett don't become the new Megna and Chaput.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Put Demko in. Let him get some minutes in front of his family.

I think Edler just hurt himself? He was limping off the ice?

Vanek should never make a pass on the powerplay... :evil:

The Canucks defense really misses Tanev.

CHRIS TANEV gets injured and all hell breaks loose.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Agree. I've said that a few times before.

What's the point of being a great shooter with average passing skills wanting to always pass when you already have two guys out there who likes to pass, don't like to shoot and aren't good at shooting?

Jeez, are we going to get a shot on this PP? Nope.

Well, I'm glad Bo still has his head attached to his body.

Perry, being his usual chicken shit, skated around Gudbranson yapping.
