Well now that the Canucks playoff hopes have been dashed, we'll start hyper-analyzing the Canucks, their coaching, their management, their front office, the GM Place vending staff, the Sportsnet crew and anyone who is even remotely connected to the team.
So I'll start. Here's five ways I think the Canucks need to address their roster this off-season.

The Coyotes have won a court ruling that will force the NHL to prove they have an actual offer for Jerry Reinsdorf in place. If they don’t, this could get really messy and open the door for other teams to follow suit. And if they don’t Mr. Bettman’s reputation will take a massive hit. While it isn't clear if the NHL will be able to produce this offer, it is becoming more clear that some of the members of the NHL Owners Club are in more trouble than many of us have been lead to believe.

Roberto Luongo wants to win. He wants to win all the time. I believe that he wants to win here in Vancouver.

But this Ducks/Wings fight shows us the difference between sending a message and "message sending." This was a nasty but emotionally organic bit of olde tyme hockey; none of the players on the ice were knuckle-dragging goons looking for a target at the end of the blowout…. The NHL's disciplinary system would become a parody of the joke it is if any of these players are suspended for Game 7.

It's officially over, my grizzly beard is now down the drain. My face is smoother than Patrick Kane's right now.
Apparently someone filled Luongo's water bottle with NyQuil. As the game progressed Luongo got slower and slower.
To win your best players have to be your best players. They were, well, most of them.
