06:05 PM ET 05.08 | While Niemi is without a doubt a star for the Sharks in this series and a crucial reason why the Canucks are the first team eliminated, more of the blame needs to be place on the absent play of the Sedin twins. Despite being the Cancucks' two best players and the leaders at the top of the roster, neither Daniel or Henrik Sedin came to play in this series and that's ultimately the reason Vancouver got swept. Neither brother scored a goal in any of the four games and they only grabbed a couple of assists. Look no further than Daniel Sedin's third period to see just how frustrating this series was for Vancouver and the Sedins.

I guess the people of BC can now look forward to the NDP isolating the province from the rest of Canada...

Sedins were just part of the problem, albeit a big part, but overall this team needs a complete overhaul starting with the coach.

concur....
I said yesterday...gut them...get some picks some character older guys (will be quite a realisation in Vancouver of what that even means for sure) and build up with youth. The bandwagon fans will be back

Concur. That was the final straw for me, and turned me into a US taxpayer.

My GP down here went to U of T, and my opthalmologist went to MacMaster

Nothing wrong with the coach.

GM is dirt. Top players are dirt.

Coach is pretty much OK though.

Make no changes. Make 2013-2014 a 2012-2013 Redux.

Trust me, living under the current regime is no walk in the park either.

I built a garden shed out of NDP election signs. I thought I did a pretty good job but the damn thing leans badly to the left.
