Thanks Carol!!

Granlund 1st line winger. Wow. Don't get me wrong, super happy it isn't Sutter, and I guess it is best to try something new instead of LE.. I guess Hansen can't play on all lines either.

I am starting to wonder if its the person on the Sedin's line, or the Sedins themselves....

They fought right to the end last night, so they're not going to go quietly, but they're up against super-long odds at this point.

By the end of the back-to-backs this weekend against Boston and Buffalo, I think we'll have a pretty good read on whether or not it's time for Jim Benning to start thinking about selling off his assets...

Hopefully that hit doesn't make Sven think about returning to the perimeter plays...

Nothing of the sort! That was my best emoji-effort at conveying empathy to Bakwas and Scooby and the rest of the crew that are bracing for the fall that's starting to look all-but-inevitable...

Thanks Carol,

No harm in trying Granlund on the Sedin's wing but I don't expect it to be the catalyst of a big run.

Good to see WD is trying something new I guess, I still find it interesting have averse he is to trying to get some chemistry going between Horvat and Eriksson.

I know Bo isn't ready for 1st line duties and that it makes a huge difference having guys like Sutter and Henrik around to ease him into the league but I think it is absolutely ridiculous that WD would put put Burrows and Megna on the top PP unit in a tight game before moving Horvat up.

Sorry Makita...... PS mom, is worried about your anger issues. She thinks you need to move back to the westcoast

In all seriousness, every fan wants their team to play well and make the playoffs. However, the Canucks are far too inconsistent for hope to stick. Of course I enjoy seeing them win and work hard but at the same time, this team desperately needs a top 10 draft pick this year and next.

It would be nice to win and make the playoffs but those draft picks are also exciting, especially if they are top 10.

Whats that figure of speech, you cannot have your cake...

A couple of top 10 picks will help, ideally we end up having multiple top 60 picks for the next couple of years as well.

I think there is a difference there between bracing over coveting.

I also think its time to give JV another shot at the big club, we need offense, what is there to lose?

Maybe this has been a stealth tank all along.

New plan:

Trade Hansen/Burrows/Miller and see if anyone wants the 4th line scraps.

Call up the reserves.

Granlund/Bo/Erikson
Sedin/Sedin/Grenier
Gaunce/Sutter/JV
whatever 4th liners remain.
