Canucks Are Done

from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun,

Cory Schneider's "body injury" has healed. His other wounds, apparently not.

And worst of all, his goal-scoring drought continues.

Schneider, re-inserted as the starting goalie for Game 3 by coach Alain Vigneault for no other reason than because he thought it was the right thing to do, was lit up for three early third-period goals - two of them by the amazing Logan Couture - to seal the Vancouver Canucks' fate, both for the evening and for another abbreviated Stanley Cup playoff run. Perhaps "run" isn't the right word.

Because, of course, they are done now. Down 3-0 in the series, with Game 4 here at HP Pavilion on Tuesday, they don't look remotely able - certainly not mentally - to handle what the San Jose Sharks are throwing at them.

Can’t be right.  SJ moved bodies OUT of SJ.  Deadweight contracts, unlikely re-signs.  No way SJ is doing this good, considering we were what, about dead even in the standings when the trade deadline came and went?

Moving out a Filppula allows for the introduction of a black ace like Tatar. Good moving, SJ!
