    Ducks just whipped them again....5-1...Lacking is now 1 gaa higher and .035 % lower since the Luongo trade. Starting him 16 straight games? Figures Torts would feed him to the wolves.

    It's Tortz fault. Face it, he Won in TB and so went to NY but the Rangers languished near the bottom of the playoff standings. Didn't accomplish much. The Vancouver coach kept the team near the top of the division but couldn't get over the hump. They switch jobs. Guess what? Vancouver is now near the bottom struggling for a playoff spot (same MO Tortarella had in NY) and the Rangers are playing well but will fall out in the 2nd round at the latest (see Vancouver during Alain's tenure)

    It is the coach's fault.

    Their biggest issue from the start this year is trouble scoring and their terrible PP. The Nucks have always been good on the PP, using the Sedin twins skill set to take advantage of the situation. But Torts have their PP shooting from the point (like the Kings) and hope for a rebound goal or whatever. It's no wonder why both the Kings and Canucks are terrible at scoring and on the PP.

    Thankfully, we have better defense and a elite goaltender to keep us in games.

    He was bad choice for a coach for a team with chemistry problems, identity roblems, and roster full of diminishing returns.

    Yuppers. That is what you get when owners step-in and make hockey decisions. The Aquilini's wanted Torts. Going to be an expensive mistake if/when Torts is let go this off-season.

    What a gong show....

    “Torts obviously talks way more than Alain did. He comes in the room way more, but the biggest thing is, Alain was more rational in his decisions and they were based on the past or stats. Torts is more gut feeling, and he’ll tell you he has a feeling in his stomach and ‘I’m going to shake up my lines’ or call this play. For the most part, Alain let us decide how we wanted to play as a team. He manages his bench well and they (Rangers) seem to be rolling four lines, and they’ll be a dangerous team in the playoffs.”

    Rumor is they are shopping the team, asking $750M for the franchise they bought for $250M. Pray to god they find a taker.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Haha! Like most of Vancouver, the team will probably be owned by China soon.
