Yeah back ripping the Canucks like this:
Act now while we're still awake
Boring play, rare goals, empty seats; GM must try to fix it

You have to wonder how much longer general manager Dave Nonis can watch this without doing something.
After all, how much longer is owner Francesco Aquilini going to stifle the yawns everyone else is giving into while watching this team?
He can see how profoundly boring this team's game has become as the over-under on these guys in Vegas continues to plunge. He can see the ever increasing number of empty seats creeping into a building that once rocked with entertainment.
He knows that unless something drastic is done, he's looking at this same sort of entertainment level for the rest of this season, and given the amount of money they have committed to the people wandering around in Canuck uniforms right now, next season as well.
He lives here, he can see the property he just bought lock stock and barrel getting to the point where even the coach is publicly chortling at his team's laughable attempts to put the puck in the net.
Thursday night's only success was a desperation drifting shot of a rolling puck from the left point by Alex Edler, a defencemen who is in the lineup only because of an injury to Rory Fitzpatrick, the puck going in because the Sedin line of all people generated some rare traffic in front.
Other than that, the only thing keeping people awake is the strobe lights which bother you when you close your eyes.
