Sharks are awful. What a disgusting way to lose a game. Doug Wilson should be hung by his toes for the poor trades and moves he's made in the last few years. Todd McLellan should be fired. He has no control over the room, his voice is meaningless.

Nothing has changed since that game against Boston in January. The whole team looks deflated. The Sedins and the goalies are still our best players, but everyone else needs to start picking up the slack.

Kesler has had a bad run with injuries lately and without him our offense is shit. We just can't score goals. The team has two former Art Ross winners, a 40 goal scoring Selke winner and that's it. It's a bunch of 2nd/3rd line tweeners after that. Guys like Raymond, Booth, Higgins are good depth guys but you just can't expect them to carry the offensive load when the Sedins are not scoring.

The defense is shit. Hamhuis is a top 15 defenseman in the league but he is not playing like one right now. Edler has always had consistency. He is a mess defensively right now which leads to poor special teams. Speaking of special teams, our top free agent signing who has a reputation of scoring bombs from the point has been ineffective on the PP. This is mainly due to the fact that he plays with Edler and Edler isn't the kind of player that dishes off passes for one timers. He's the guy that takes the shots which makes Garrison useless.

Goaltending has been solid and I'm not worried about it. We have two legitimate goalies that bring out the best in each other and having two is better than one. Neither one of them is getting traded any time soon, so if one falters down the stretch or in the playoffs, making the switch to the other goalie should be easy.

I honestly believe the Canucks are still a top team. Call me a homer if you want, but this team won the President's trophy last year by putting almost no effort down the stretch. As soon as we won the Boston game it was basically, "K. We got our win back. Now let's start playing like shit and cruise to the playoffs." And right before the playoffs rolled around Duncan Keith takes out our top offensive weapon and all hope was lost.

I don't mind this slump. I see it as a win-win either way.

1. By the Canucks losing now, there is a strong chance that the team gets hot right before the playoffs and as evident last year with the Kings, all you need is a ticket to the dance to win it all. If it means no home ice, so be it. They have been the top contender two years in a row now. It would be nice for them to go into the post season with less pressure.

2. If situation 1 doesn't happen and the Canucks keep their losing ways and miss the playoffs entirely (or make the playoffs and get bounced in the first round again), Vigneault is fired. AV is a good coach, but I think the players have started to tune him out. He doesn't get his team motivated. Based off interviews of players who have played for the Canucks in the past, his shtick is basically "Alright boys, you know what to do. Now go out there and do it." The system is not working anymore.

Ottawa's Kaspars Daugavins shootout attempt was crazy last night, great work by Tuukka Rask with the stop. Props to creativity, though.

Great 3rd by the Pens for the comeback win! Brandon Sutter has been a great player for them. I'm not even going to make the Jordan Staal-Sutter argument but Shero got Sutter, Dumoulin, and Pouliot for a player who was walking in a year anyway. Useful.

Leafs are very disappointing in this game. They can beat the Jets. They have beat the Jets and they should've beat the Jets.

Yup. Sutter has become one of my favorite Penguins. He's had about 4 clutch goals so far this year.

Also, Julian whining about those calls in the 3rd was hilarious.

Terrible game from the Leafs. Those last two goals from the Jets should not have happened. Should've been a 3-2 game. Holzer really should not be on the top D pairing. Bring Gardiner back up! Put Phaneuf on the right side with Gunnarsson as his partner! Put Gardiner and Kostka together!
