The Canucks are struggling. For a team that went to the Stanley Cup Finals, they are looking like a hot mess right now. Take last night for example.

They were on the road in Minnesota and played like horseshit. Losing 5-1 is just the tip of the iceberg. An iceberg made of frozen airplane piss.

Beyond giving the Wild five goals, they allowed Minnesota to take 45 shots -- the most ever taken in a home game in Wild history. That's historically bad. The Wild made goaltender Cory Schneider look like Roberto Luongo. Yes, he played that bad. They let Matt Cullen score two goals and win 13 of 17 faceoffs.

The Canucks, who have been at the top of scoring in the Western Conference, scored just one goal after scoring 12 in the previous two games. Nothing is going right for the Canucks. Karma would say that either the Blues are all set to keep the misery going for Vancouver. Or a team as talented as the Canucks can't keep playing like shit for an extended period of time.

You people don't read this. There's not much point writing more. Comment like you're about to buy the team.
