I think the greatest disappointment in the Canucks current losing streak is that they are missing the golden opportunity being handed to them by LA who is on their own brutal streak (1-8-1). 3rd in the pacific is low hanging fruit right now.

I love Torts and his overall style and intensity. But it won't work with Canucks aging players. He's flat out run them into the ground with too much ice time. Vigneault's system worked better with these players. While the current squad is far from winning a Stanley Cup, they would be doing better with AV as coach I think. But not much better. Either way, this "keeping the twins" thing is perhaps not the way to go for the future. Only if you can give the team more depth and options, otherwise try to sell off most of the guys with fat contracts that are on a decline and rebuild. Not an easy sale though. I don't admire Gillis, although he's made his bed and he's going to have to sleep in it. Or poop in it.

Wrong. Always.

I think Torts could be the man for Vancouver to have success with.. he just needs the right team underneath him, and this isnt it. Nor is Gillis the guy thats going to assemble it. It time to make some big changes, bring in some young and hungry guys, and rebuild. They've been sticking their finger in the socket for too many years.

Likely the 13-14 Nucks greatest achievement

I really wish the internet would stop making these auto-tune videos. They were marginally funny back when they first started

I don't know why you think I am an Oilers fan. T'is not the case.

You've never stated your allegiance, so I chose for you.

Best to wait until June to pick. In the meantime, get attention by honing ones anti-fan skills.

You must spread rep…blah blah

I dont think its all that surprising. We all know what kind of state the Canucks are in, and they certainly don't seem to be making any positive moves. They may as well trade him while they can still get something decent for him.

His agent denies he has requested a trade. Meh, I'll believe it when it happens.

Either way, the 'rumour' could be enough.

I vote for the Canucks Stanley Cup parade this June going from Roger's to the VCC and end with the relighting of the Olympic flame.

Wow, with the Olympics and all, Luongo sure has been riding the pine for quite some time now…..

I have no prob with the reasoning behind starting Lack after a shutout , but I'm sure the reporters will be suspect to a
Luongo trade .
