Lucic is actually putting up a few points and doesn’t look horrible out there. Certainly not as bad a contract as the Air Thief.

Olli Juolevi ; pre-game Very positive. Grins about the little run-in with Matthew Tkachuk; Knows him very well.

Everyone, except Ottawa, looks good when they are playing Vancouver this season.

If they don't win this game, the season is over (*)

so true. TBH, I think they need to go on a 6 or 7 game win streak to even get back to even odds of making the playoffs now. It is all by officially over.

Can't see any changes to the Canucks unless Green thinks Zack MacEwen or Jayce Hawryluk can draw in to the line-up.
Don't know who either would supplant. Either LE or JV, I suppose. Louis had a better game then Jake last game. Yikes.

This could explain why Jake is staying in the line up for now.
Chris Johnston - Jake Virtanen is a player that is gaining interest from other teams... I think teams are hoping that a fresh start could bring out the best in him.

I still think an underlying cause to our crappy season is the schedule. We've played the most games (2 more than any other team / 9 more than NJ) - and for players who rely on game day schedules and other routines, it's going to be messing them up a bit. BUT - they are still paid a shitload of money to be pros and deal with some inconveniences.

They get a break at the end of the month and can try sort their shit out then - but if we keep losing, then it won't really matter. I'm guessing we'll have to pass both of the Alberta team to make the playoffs, and that's starting to look like a stretch right now.

So tonight is just another in a series of must win games.

5-4 Canucks
