I'd rather get swept in the first round by a team with a hot goal tender then make it all the way to game 7 of the finals and get absolutely destroyed.

Yes the Nucks are they are down 3 - 0.

Whether you lose 8 - 4 or 1 - 0 you still lose.

Last time I checked Pens won the cup a few years ago. When you 2nd you see the cup but you don't host it.

I'm tempted to take Nucks to win the series...

If they can win game 4, they return home for game game 5. They protect home ice, 2-3 series heading back for game 6 in LA...

Win game 6...head home for game 7...

I highly doubt these spineless people win a game, but who knows...

They could pull off a game, maybe even two.  But at this point they have no chance to beat Quick 4 straight games.

Sounds better.

 Great Questions... Let's go to our news correspondent for a live interview with the mob... errr... man on the street.

News Reported>>>    <<<Canucks Fans on the street.

If I sold property damage insurance I'd be on the first flight heading to Vancouver tomorrow... and boy would I have some great deals for them.

Actually... Last season HAD to be worse... They were 1 game away from winning it all and had TWO chances to win that clincher... AND with game 7 at home... approximately 3000 miles from the visiting teams city and north of the border from the USA as well... Thier fans(?) were all liquered up and gathered together for what they expected would be the greatest day of thier (fan) lives... AND THEN... They get skunked in that game 7 by a score of 4-0 by the Bruins who didn't even let the Canucks sniff those champagne corks. PLUS... It had to bring back all those misrable feeling that the Canucks fans had when they became THAT team who ended up being the victims that broke the Rangers Cup winning drought... and in a game 7 also.

This season the Canucks fans will say they did not have BOTH twins to help on offense... but that's NOT thier ONLY problem vs the Kings. The problem for the Canucks is that the Kings are taking the games right at them and beating them in almost every phase of the game. Luongo did not play bad at all... and he can't play defense as well as goalie. The Kings are just flat out fired up and trying to win every shift of the games... I CAN'T SAY THAT about the way that the Canucks have played in this series, especially in the 2 games at Vancouver... The VaNucks played much better in game 3 and I expect them to be free-wheeling in game 4 knowing that there will be no more tomorrows if they lose again to L.A. in this series.

When you look at what the Bruins did last playoffs and what the Kings are doing to the Canucks this playoffs... You can see that Vancouver obviously has problems vs teams that hussle and out-hit them and have a great goalie. Every team has it's Kryptonite... and for the Canucks... it's physical teams with great goalies that just stick 'em in the ribs when all the chips are on the table. They need open ice and to get the on-ice matchups in thier favor... but both the Bruins and Kings shrunk the ice and match up well enough to turn the games into a grinding style that suits THEM and NOT the VaNucks.

I am human... and I feel bad for any fans who are decent people in thier real lives... including those Canucks fans who have dignity and show respect to others.

But I'm also human when I say that I'm very happy to see them getting smoked again so that those ignorant Canucks fans can sit and sizzle at home while watching others have success vs thier Canucks. I feel no remorse for those Canucks fan(?) who use the team as an excuse to display thier ignorance and hostilities towards others.

Play hard... play clean... and may the team who plays the best... win it in the end.

Game 4 is always the hardest one to win... Nothing is over until it's over... Just look what the Flyers did to the Bruins a few years back... and what the Bruins did to the VaNucks last year... I will NOT be happy and relaxed until the final buzzer sounds with the Kings having a lead in either game 4, 5, 6 or... 7

LA can NOT take the foot off of the pedal...

The Kings can expect  another desperate effort from the Canucks in game 4... and I really don't want to see the Kings have to go back to Vancouver where the Canucks could get a home win and send it back to LA only being down 2-3 in games... I really, really, really DONT want a game 5.

The presidents trophy is won for the most points but means squat at the end of the day. The knuckleheads don't have any playoff calibre teams in their division. This makes it easy to rack up points when you play sieve teams all the time, you get more points. Central Division is loaded with quality teams but the only reason they don't get as many points is because they were all busy playing each other instead of sieve teams like the Nucks. Bragging about the president's trophy when you play the Oilers, Flames, Avs,and the Wild all the time is like stepping on ants and saying you're awesome. Enjoy the links Nucks and sip some suds out of your shiny presidents trophy.

"We never thought we were going be up, 3-0, in this series against a team that's pretty well dominated this League for the last two years. In saying that, it's three games. It takes four to win." -- Kings' Dustin Brown on L.A. taking a 3-0 series lead against the Vancouver Canucks

Hey Vancouver citizens have the right to riot.......The CANUCKS are the best team in the NHL remember>????

Canucks losing just isnt fair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Theyre like little kids who dont get their way, and throw a fit.

I took Boston to win the 7 game series after Game one last year, enjoyed every minute of the series and the riots that followed

don't think they will this year.  i think they will come to realize after game 4 that this team as constituted will not win.  in fact, besides having no balls, they just arent playoff built.  looking at the roster, are they really the best team in the league?  lot of softees on this team, and in hockey, more then any other sport, the game is a different animal in the playoffs.  no more pond hockey.  you have to strap it up. the canucks and the sharks are like the buffalo bills and chicago cubs, respectively. niether will see a championship for a long time....
