What’s Happened With The Canucks?

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

Sometimes you just get “The Feeling” about a team. That perhaps, this is just not its time.

Or, when you are Alain Vigneault, that this might be the end of your time. In Vancouver, at least.

The Vancouver Canucks have gone blah. Meh…

Watching them used to be must-see TV on a West Coast start after the kids have gone to bed. But that was back when they used to score tic-tac-toe goals, throwing it around on the power play like the Harlem Globetrotters.

Today, the only one in Van City with a ball eternally spinning on the tip of the finger is general manager Mike Gillis, who hasn’t been able to find his deal for a goaltender. We applaud his dogged patience, but it has left Vigneault with a Top 6 player dressed in goalie pads and a baseball cap at the end the bench every night, and a wonky team save percentage of .905.
