Canucks Playoffs

THE SKY IS FALLING!!!
THE SKY IS FALLING!!!
THE WARNING SIGNS CAN BE SEEN IN THE HEAD LINES IN THE LOCAL PAPERS…
“WAKE UP CALL”
“TROUBLE IN EVERY DEPARTMENT”
THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR…
IF YOU ARE A CANUCK FAN…WAITING FOR THE PLAYOFFS???
“BE AFRAID…BE VERY AFRAID”…
ONE OF THESE “DOOMSDAY PROPHETS” IS JASON BOTCHFORD OF THE VANCOUVER PROVINCE…
WHO IN THIS MORNINGS PAPER…WROTE…AND I QUOTE…
“THEIR GOALIE IS MIRED IN THE LONGEST SLUMP OF HIS CAREER’…
“THEIR DEFENCE HAS BEEN OVER WORKED”
“THEIR FORWARDS HAVE ADMITTTED THEY’RE UNMOTIVATED”
MAKES YOU WONDER WHY YOU GOT UP THIS MORNING…
TIME TO DO A REALITY CHECK…
TO START WITH…IN THE NEW NHL…GOALTENDING IS NOT EVERYTHING…
LAST SEASON…DETROIT AND PITTSBURGH MADE IT TO THE STANLEY CUP FINAL FOR THE SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR…
THE PENGUINS WENT INTO THE PLAYOFFS WITH MARC ANDRE FLEURY…WHO HAD THE 23RD WORST GOALS AGAINST AVERAGE IN THE NHL…
THE WINGS HAD CHRIS OSGOOD…WHO HAD THE 40TH WORST GOALS AGAINST AVERAGE…
IN COMPARISON…THIS SEASON…ROBERTO LUONGO IS A MERE 17TH …
CANUCK FANS CAN TAKE COMFORT IN THE WORDS OF ALFRED E NEWMAN…”WHAT…ME WORRY???”
AS FOR THE THEORY…A TEAM MUST BE ON A ROLE AT THE END OF THE REGULAR SEASON…
THE FACTS…DO NOT BACK IT UP…
LAST YEAR THE WINGS LOST 7 OF THEIR LAST 10…
IN 2008 THE PENGUINS LOST 2 OF THEIR LAST 3…
IN 07…ANAHEIM LOST 2 OF ITS LAST 3…
IN 06…EDMONTON LOST 3 OF ITS LAST 6…AND TAMPA BAY LOST 4 OF ITS LAST 5…
ALL OF THOSE TEAMS WENT ONTO THE STANLEY CUP FINAL…
THE TRUTH IS…GOOD TEAMS KNOW HOW TO TURN IT ON…WHEN IT MATTERS…
IN THE END…THAT AND THAT ALONE IS WHAT WILL DETERMINE THE FATE OF THE VANCOUVER CANUCKS IN THESE PLAYOFFS…
CHICKEN LITTLE BE DAMNED!!!

This team MUST pull there head out of there ass and fight fight fight!!! If they ever think they will make it even past first round. Countless years of frustration and no results. Pull every bloody ounce of energy and passion and fight!!! get mad, get angry and get it done. No more medeocracy!!!find a way!!! do it!! Stop counting on the twins for everything, they need some grit they need to play with the pasion and skill and mentality that failure is NOT an option. I would really love to see some of the other players play and act like bur and kes. Heart on a sleave, show your pissed get them scared!!! Lets face it thats what Chicago did to us last year, made us look stupid and slow. And Allan, seriously show some emotion, cool and calm is fine for reg season but this is it. Free agency dictates major changes almost ev couple years...so get up on that damn bench and wreck havok!! show your guys the intensity that they need!! badly!! Stop letting teams own us so early, and counting on Lou to stop everything cause guess what..he won't hes human.its a team sport that REQUIRES defense not just a guy standing in front of the net. He is only gonna be as good as the guys standing in front of him, its not 5 on 1. Guys please get it done!! i have watched this team for so long and always will be be a canucks fan, theres nothing better than watching from the stands at GM place...show us the best and good luck boys!!
GO CANUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
