Gettin it off my chest!

This week, things that bother me about the Canucks.

You know what I hate?

I hate that the Canucks are winning.

I hate that they’re winning ugly. Why can’t they just look beautiful again? I prefer beautiful losses to ugly wins.

Honestly, I just want to watch the Henrik Sedin & Daniel Sedin play a passing drill for 60 minutes. They don’t even need to shoot. No one ever complained that they played too pretty before, or bashed them for making one too many pass.

Why can’t they just keep that going? I  like the old Canucks, there was never anything to complain about then.

You know who I hate? David Booth.

What an awful trade. So what if that injury wasn’t his fault? And so what if the Canucks have been on fire since his return? David Booth has five points in the past five games?

19 points in 30 games? NOT GOOD ENOUGH! And he’s 27?

That’s too old to improve.

Man, I hate David Booth.

Hey you know what else I don’t like?

Roberto Luongo. You know how bad he is in shootouts? I mean, OK he’s won the last two but that’s not important. .957, .930 and .938 his past three games?

Things aren't perfect, and so everything is wrong.

Not high enough. We can’t win without Luongo being flawless!

Besides, its not like our team this year is an offensive juggernaut, we don’t need to focus on that, we need  to focus on Luongo!

You know what else I hate?

That we seem to finally be healthy. That doesn’t mean that the coaching staff is doing a good job, or that players have been careful (Booth) and taking their rehab seriously (Mason Raymond) all it means is that we’ve been lucky and that soon we’ll be hurt again.

Man, you know what’s worse than being injured?

Being healthy again.

So what if we’re only one point out of the best record in the NHL? So what if two thirds of our remaining games are at home?

So what if our remaing schedule is soft?

Things aren’t perfect, and so everything is wrong. We aren’t the best in the league at every single position, so we suck.

You know what I REALLY REALLY hate?

Optimism.

* Editors Note – Riley’s views don’t necessarily reflect those on this website. It’s just that well…we don’t pay him enough.

You know you’ll be back for more next week! Till then…
