from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
Perhaps now the Vancouver Canucks are disintegrating before their eyes, those so utterly determined to make excuses for these guys will give it a rest.
When you lose to the worst team in the Eastern Conference in your own rink in the middle of a homestand and get the crap kicked out of your alleged stars in the bargain, it doesn’t get much worse. How coach Alain Vigneault explains this to his friends back in Montreal would certainly be an interesting conversation on which to eavesdrop as now that his team has nothing to play for they’ve decided to stop playing. And as you go down the roster man by man, there are just a few who can hold their heads up. The rest are just flat out embarrassing themselves as they not only lost, they watched a rag tag bunch with just as little to play for as themselves throw sand in their face. Their response was that of the 95-pound weakling. And if you wonder why there is complete panic on the airwaves this week as the Canucks take a break in their schedule, you’ll have to understand. Vancouver fans are watching their team crumple like a paper napkin after lunch and expectations are a shade higher.
