i have been repressing the urge to spam this thread with everything canucks related for the past 2 weeks but I think I’ll just let this funny video sit here since i think it summarizes everything quite nicely.

canucks have a terrible defensive group and poorer than expected goaltending isn't helping at all. They have a bunch of bad contracts in OEL and Myers that are just taking up space, and they're playing Luke Schenn in the top 4 which is not a recipe for success

Really made no sense to acquire guys like Garland, OEL, Mikheyev, when you knew you had to sign Pettersson, Hughes, etc. Now they're going to end up losing Horvat who's been insane this year. The top six forward group is great, I don't think the bottom six has that much depth. They also overcommitted to Miller who isn't producing at the level he's expected too and has been embarrassingly lazy defensively this year. Good player still, seems he's been a problem on previous teams though

Bringing in Rutherford was kind of dumb since he's looking at a quick retool rather than a proper rebuild which the canucks kind of needed since Benning fucked their cap structure and got rid of assets like candy. The way they handled the coaching situation was unreal though lol, absolute shit show

Really though its not all that bad since there's a lot of good talent on the team, just need defensive help, and if Demko can get back to where he was the past few years, they add a top pick they'll be looking good.

pretty much everything zilly said is true. it doesnt help that most of the canucks' current problems are a result of previous management's bad decisions (trading away eriksson who only had 1 year left on his deal, bringing in OEL and garland who both have bad contracts with lots of term). can't trade away our problems cuz other teams want to win and are also up against the salary cap, so why would they ever take our terrible players.

Coach Boudreau was essentially used as a scapegoat for the team's poor play in spite of these poor signings from old management and a failure to acknowledge the gaping hole in our defensive depth by current management. Canucks are now on their 3rd head coach in 14 months, and they are still paying both Bruce Boudreau and Travis Green. with this in mind, something tells me it's not Boudreau's fault (aka the guy that turned this 8-15-2 team into a 40-30-12 team by the end of last season).

if u want my insider information, i know someone who works the 50/50 draft during home games and they say that the owner, Francesco Aquilini, is one of the rudest people they have ever met and it is rumoured that he is trying to do everything in his power to win a stanley cup before his dad dies (he is very old). obviously a sad situation for him cuz his dad is dying or whatever but to treat ur employees (who are both actively involved with the on-ice product, and those who are involved with fan interaction) like dog shit and force management into these ballsy moves and signings is just not how you deal with that. #SellTheTeam ...
