So, I’ve said the angry “I’m never going to watch you losers again!”, and I’ve tried the accepting, realistic, “The season was over when he hit that four game losing skid, they’re just too injured, this draft is really deep this year anyways.”, mindset. But I’ve concluded today that those two things don’t quite work for me. There’s still a tiny, probably delusional, part of me that won’t give up on them until they are officially eliminated from getting into the playoffs. This team does need improvements, they are kind of painfully boring to watch when they’re losing, and often scoring more than two goals looks close to rocket science, but I picked this team, and I’m stuck with them. And I like them. So I’m cheering them on tonight, and even though I know they have no real chance to go anywhere in the playoffs, I still want them to be able to try.
I will be stocking up on this. Anybody that watches the Canucks sober these days is a crazy person.
And they’re done. You kind of knew this team was done when all of the injuries started hitting. I’m so sad for Trev and Nazzy. I just don’t even know what happened…all those power plays…and one goal. That’s all she wrote. Still the game on Saturday. But it means nothing. Man, that’s got to hurt, fan appreciation and they’re out of the playoffs.
