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.
