January 31 – Well thank God this month is over huh? You think they can turn this skid around tonight? And if they don’t shouldn’t we just own up to being the worst team in the league? At least we’d have an identity.
January 29 – Remember earlier this year when the Canucks teased a marketing campaign with the word Seven? Who knew that number would be so relevant just a few months later, only now it’s the man behind the bench who needs to be “retired.” If you’re so inclined, let your voice be heard.
January 21: Sure, Vancouver took it to the Sharks but the end result seems oddly the same as the rest of January, a month in which they have eight points out of a possible 20. And even the nicest grade school teacher knows that’s an F.
January 17 – Two more games until the All Star break and it’s certainly not a stretch to think the Canucks may have two more losses in them, bringing the four game skid to a six game train wreck. Gillis won’t tip his hat and Vigneault and the players will all say the right thing. But if it happens, what would you do?
February 1 – Roughly four weeks until the trade deadline. Roughly eight weeks until the end of the season.
And the Canucks have lost nine at home and are two more losses away from tying their franchise record for consecutive defeats.
And some would call last night progress. Would you?
January 28 – Can Vancouver break it and stay relevant in the playoff hunt? Or should we start discussing what kind of kitchen linoleum feels the best on your face as you pass out, blind stinking drunk, in a fit of rage at another loss? Your guess is as good as mine…but let’s liveblog it anyway.
January 20 – I’ve spent a week kicking this team around but tonight I’ll play a different tune: they just have to win. We can’t let another San Jose reclamation project start well on our watch. We just can’t.
January 16: No more excuses. No more games like last night (or like against the Devils or the Sharks or the Caps). No more. It’s nothing personal Alain. It’s just time. Pull the trigger Mike.
