Strangely, some of these mainstream media sites have the Canucks moving up in the rankings. Inconceivable!
|Outlet||Rank||Last Week||What They're Saying|
|16||17||Two regulation wins in the last 11 games leaves questions about what is wrong with the Canucks, but the answer should be pretty simple -- their goaltending has been mediocre (.907 SV%) and they aren't getting nearly enough scoring from players not named Sedin, which of course ties closely to Ryan Kesler's injury woes.|
A big matchup looms Monday night against the Wild. It seems that for the first time in what feels like ages, they will have to fight their division rivals for the crown.
Edit: Faces were palmed Monday night. It was like, Palm Monday.
|13||13||Hard to get a handle on the talented Canucks, who have somehow managed to win just three of their past 10 games. What looked early on to be a cakewalk in the Northwest has turned into a question of whether they can hang onto a playoff berth.|
Alex Burrows scored the quickest goal in franchise history (6 seconds), but that’d be basically the end of the good times as the Canucks lost to the Red Wings 5-2 on Saturday. Another missed opportunity at a statement win.

|22||20||How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Answer: The Canucks suck. And you can start nagging that we at NM are starting to sound like CDC, but I don't care. The sky is falling, dammit!
Is it time for a new coach?, (Edit: Perhaps)
Booth's locker is cleaned out (Edit: GOOD)
Going To SCF 2011 Was The WORST Thing For The Canucks (Edit: LOLWUT)
We're trending towards copying Calgary (Edit: True! Garrison = Bouwmeester and Booth = Jokinen! Oh god!)
Players that frustrate me. They need to read this post-game and smarten up. (Edit: They would read it, but they are all too busy reading Nucks Misconduct)
