This morning, former Canuck Tiger Williams expressed his discontent with the Canucks franchise as a whole. Here’s what he had to say when he joined TSN Radio 1040:
“You know, Linden was loved by all the fans in the Lower Mainland and in British Columbia, but he’s the worst guy you could have running the Vancouver Canucks. He’s had no experience, and to throw him into that job that was a bad decision by the ownership group and it’s still a bad decision. If the ownership group, if they don’t know what they’re doing either, they’re hiring the wrong people, then you’ve really got an issue. And I think they’ve really got an issue.”
“They’ve got a great coach, they’ve got great assistant coaches, they got good scouts, but their leadership at the top is zero. Willie has been a winner. Look at his resume. He’s been a winner his whole life no matter where he is, but you only have so many horses in the barn…they just don’t have the horses. I think they’ve waited too long for some players they could’ve moved earlier in their careers.”
“And another thing about Vancouver. How many owners have we had in Vancouver? We’ve had more owners over the years in Vancouver than most teams have pucks”

Well, that’s one way to put things. Last night, the Canucks fell to 29th overall after a loss to the Arizona Coyotes which was the team’s sixth straight regulation loss.
The Canucks have two games left this season and play a home-and-away against the Edmonton Oilers.
Currently, the Canucks have a 12.1 per cent chance at winning the draft lottery, and two losses against the Oilers would ensure that it stays the same.
Canucks fans, what do you have to say about Williams’ comments?
