The game was typical of the whole season. They lacked scoring and a killer instinct. C'mon, they had 18 minutes of powerplay time and they couldn't win. And, for a team built around defense, there were terrible breakdowns. And, the goaltending wasn't good enough when it had to be.
I've never been one to jump on and off the bandwagon and I won't jump off now but it's been a frustrating season. There's always next year. But, losing 6 of the last 7 with the playoffs on the line is a terrible way to end the season but, unfortunately, we've seen this before.
Changes will need to be made during the offseason. Trevor is probably done as a Canuck. So is Naslund. That's too bad because, at the right price, he can still contribute to this team. However, he now has too much baggage to come back. Nonis has his work cut out for him to re-shape the team but at least he now has some salary cap room to work with. Let's see what he can do.
I guess I can start cheering for the Flames in the playoffs. Nah, who am i kidding; I can't do that. I'm a Canucks fan.
Back to running...
