07:15 AM ET 05.06 | Cory Schneider had plenty of gumption over the past few years of working to land him the No. 1 spot in Vancouver. [It] apparently hasn't yet wiped the slate clean. Hence a question asked of him in the Canucks' room after Sunday's game-day skate -- when he was declared fit to start Game 3 -- about unattributed suggestions that he might not have the proper mental makeup to play the biggest games. How's that for a kick to the solar plexus? ... "Right," said Schneider, his eyes flashing. "Sure -- the injury just can't be an injury. You tell somebody you're hurt and they don't believe you. ... I played last year in the playoffs and played in tough games, so I'm not sure where that would come from. It's not an issue."

It would appear that the Canucks aren't prepared for the playoffs either.

Poisoned environment out there on the Left Coast. Makes TOR seem like paradise, doesn't it?

Couldn't think of a better team to have it happen to.

I agree with your first statement but don't get carried away. ;-)

He didn't seem fit last night. Talk about letting beachballs thru the five hole!

Luongo was their best player in games 1 and 2, and Schneider their worst in game 3. Gillis deserves the sacking he's about to receive. Could a re-hiring of a certain former GM be far away?

Why was a goalie change made? Luongo wasn't the reason the Canucks were down 0-2.

It seems like the Sedins are nursing their periods.

I wonder what the record for most teeth lost in a series is. Ott-Mtl must be approaching it by now.

I'd tell you but you can't handle the tooth.

Have to agree. Vancouver has generated NO offense. Zilch, zero, nada, missing in action. Two years ago in a 7 game game Cup final against Boston they scored what? 8 goals? Vigneault gone after this one?

Not gonna get a Stanley Cup even if they go all the way? Maybe a Gummy Bear?

Its not going to matter.

I agree. To paraphrase that famous quote: "They're not what we thought they were." They're a lot softer, kinder, gentler.
