Despite the Canucks’ horrendous play this past month and 8-game losing streak, it’s crazy to think that they are still in playoff contention. A quick look at the standings this morning confirm that – with 52 points in 50 games, they sit in 11th place, but are only a single point from 8th and 3 points away from 5th. They have two games in hand over 5th place Anaheim (55 points in 52 games), but have played more games than Dallas (53 points in 48 games), Minnesota and Edmonton (both 53 points in 49 games).

The Canucks should consider themselves lucky. I know it sounds funny, but for the team to go into a funk as much as they have and still be within reach of the postseason is lucky. Maybe this accounts for Mike Gillis’ patience, a patience that’s at it’s end but patience nonetheless. Maybe this is why the coach hasn’t been fired or Ohlund hasn’t been traded. I just hope it’s patience rewarded and the team turns it around. Or if the ineffective play continues and Gillis does decide to shake things up, that it’s not too late.

    I’ve watched mostly all the games for the last 20 years. But, sad too say “I don’t care to watch them on the tube (Now)!” I never thought my true dedication of being a Canuck Fan would be at a stand still until now! This team has so much talent, but; obviously it’s something beyond the players that is dragging them down! The owners’ should hurry up and do something before more fans lose interest!!!!!!
